awin affiliate signup


If you're looking to monetise your site then I highly recommend Awin. They are an affiliate network with hundreds of well-known brands who you can promote via content, banners and social.

They also have an opportunity marketplace where you can post your blog and social media services for brands to see.

It costs £5 to sign up, but you'll get that back in your first pay-out. The minimum threshold is £20 for a pay-out.

Tailwind (one month FREE)

I use Tailwind to schedule my Pinterest pins and to share other content on Pinterest at the best times for engagement.  It creates a smart schedule for your content and spreads it out so you don't flood your feed with content all at once. 

I also use the Tribes feature to share my content with likeminded bloggers who will retweet it in return for me sharing their content, so we all reach a wider audience.  I use the Loop feature to create recurring Pins for my evergreen and popular content.

It also has Instagram management, but I've not explored this yet.

Zoho email

I've been using Zoho email for years so I have my domain as my email address e.g. [email protected]

It looks so much more professional to have your email address matching your domain.

I have five different email domains and I can manage them all in one place with Zoho email, as well as two users on my account.

ShareASale is part of Awin, but a separate affiliate platform you can sign up to for access to even more brands to promote on your blog using affiliate links to generate commissions.
