I am a proud fan of Michelle Schroeder-Gardner, author, and owner of Making Sense of Cents blog. Her phenomenal blogging career is one of the motivating reasons I began blogging. Not that potentially earning, $100,000 a month in income isn’t motivating enough, but the freedom and flexible lifestyle Michelle has earned from blogging is incentive enough. Michelle traveled around America in an RV before moving to a Catamaran and is now sailing around the world. Not that I can travel around the world in a Catamaran, but just having the flexibility to work at home to care and “just be physically there” for my two children and husband is incentive enough for me.

What’s one of the amazing things about Michelle’s success is that many bloggers who make near $100,000 a month have multiple blogs. Michelle only has 1 blog!! Let me repeat that…Just uno numero blog that makes over $100,000 a month. That’s simply remarkable! But how does Michelle make $100,000 a month?
If you look at her monthly income reports, which are posted on her blog, you will see that half of her income comes from Affiliate Marketing. In July 2018, Michele made $68K on affiliate income alone. Her total income for July 2018 was $113,235. I wanted to learn what are Michele’s secrets and strategies to affiliate marketing. I learned that Michelle offers an online course on affiliate marketing called Making Sense of Affiliate Marketing. Praise and Thanks!! Sign me up!!!

The worksheets alone that Michelle provides are invaluable. Michelle made a wonderful web diagram of information to use when promoting an affiliate link. It’s very thorough and will help you in marketing your affiliate posts. It’s really more than just slapping an affiliate link up in a post. It’s a strategic launch of a product or service to your readers in a multiple-step fashion that Michelle will teach you.
The course is worthy of the price range of $300 plus but is priced for us, bloggers, at $197. I suggest you read more about other bloggers success with this course on the course introduction page.
