How to Make Money: Affiliate Sales

Kayla Lords

I am an erotic author, sex blogger, podcaster, freelance writer, an opinionated marketer, and a speaker with a focus on BDSM and D/s. Here at The Smutlancer, I help people who want to create content or products about sex get paid to do it. I'm sharing what I've learned as a freelancer and a sex blogger to build a career. You can find me online sharing my innermost sexual thoughts and experiences and helping kinksters have healthy BDSM relationships. I'm also a masochistic babygirl submissive with an amazing and sadistic Daddy Dom and business partner, John Brownstone.

    Affiliate sales are useful for getting a bit of pocket money but unless you have a massive following they’re unlikely to provide a steady or reliable source of income.

      I agree completely. I don’t include it in my budgeted income for that very reason, but I have seen definite growth over time that is only in part due to an increase in numbers and mostly about the connections we make with our followers — and the trust we establish with them when we make a recommendation. And right now, I’m good with affiliate sales paying for my caffeine addiction, lol.

    I just started my blog, 2 weeks old, and get 1000+ visitors a day. Do I just go to these websites for toys and such and use the contact form to try and get my foot in the door for affiliate marketing? How do you get started? Thanks!

    • Kayla Lords says:

      Many sex toy sites who offer affiliate programs will link to the information about their program on their site, usually in the footer. Look for sites that you’d like to work with — either popular ones like LoveHoney or Adam & Eve or sites you really like, and they should make that information readily available.
