So, you started a blog, a YouTube channel, a podcast or an Instagram page about beer. We’re in the age of social media and being a social media influencer is a great “side hustle” (a.k.a. way to make some residual income) doing what you love! But where do you start?

 

How To Make Money Off Your Beer Blog

Growing a following on social media, a blog or a YouTube channel can be tough, but you don’t need to have millions of followers to make money off your beer blog or YouTube channel. You can simply make money by joining an affiliate marketing program and using affiliate links or referral links to beer products in your content.

 

What are affiliate links and how do they work?

An affiliate link is a link to a product containing an “affiliates” specific ID. This allows the advertiser to record traffic and revenue coming from a specific site or user (a.k.a. your blog or YouTube channel). When a purchase is made using the link containing the ID, the affiliate (that’s you!) receives a “commission” or percent of the purchase’s revenue.* So, the advertiser is pretty much paying you to refer your followers to their products that interest you.

*This does not affect the buyer’s price at all.
