Have you ever had those affiliate programs that you sign up for and then forget about? Viglink is that one for me, I always forget that I'm even an affiliate because I don't use them that often.
I originally signed up so I could sell for the Disney Store but I sort of forgot about it, it happens. Anyway, I got an email saying they sent me a payment! I got a whole whopping $2.99! RAD! Hey, money is money!
I thought this was my first payment but it turns out, they sent me money in the past, not quite as much as this big payout but they have sent me a payment before...
In October of 2013, I received a payment of $1.02 from them. I don't know why I didn't blog about it at the time, it was close to Christmas so my guess is I was busy rocking the blog posts for Quarter 4 earnings. November and December are big months for me so I was probably thinking about "much grander" things at the time. :) $1.02 is hardly anything to get excited about but it was money, so I should have blogged about it.
So What is VigLink?
How does it work?
Browse the websites that you want to use, like Amazon, eBay or the Disney Store for example.
Copy the URL of the product and paste it in the Viglink Anywhere Converter (once you sign up).
That link will spit out a referral link with your affiliate ID in it.
When someone buys something through that link, you get a commission for the sale.
