There are several ways you can make money with your TypePad weblog, simply by doing what you love – blogging.
If you have any products that you would like to sell - be it jewelry, crafts, photographs, or anything else – you can use PayPal or some of our widgets to add shopping links to your weblog. We have instructions on how to do this in our Knowledge Base.
By now, it seems that most everyone has made at least one purchase from Amazon. If you are an Amazon Associate you can take advantage of the program by entering your Amazon Associates ID into your author profile. Then, any time you enter an item from Amazon into a Reading or Music TypeList, your affiliate link will automatically be used, earning you money from sales.
We also have some Amazon Widgets that you can add to your weblog that work with your Amazon affiliate ID. You can recommend products, allow people to search Amazon directly from your weblog, and use simple HTML to link to products in your blog posts. There is additional information on how to use these widgets with your weblog in the Knowledge Base here.
All subscribers are able to add their own advertising to their weblogs. We have step-by-step instructions for adding Google AdSense ads, one of the most popular types of advertising, to your weblog.
Finally, you can also make money by spreading the word about how wonderful TypePad is by becoming an affiliate through Commission Junction. Simply refer people to any of our products – TypePad, Movable Type, or LiveJournal – and you’ll earn money just for letting your readers know how much you love Six Apart.
