Welcome to the Niche Blogging Tips Podcast where we help you start and grow a successful blog. And now your host, Andre Vaughn.
We put together a resource page for a lot of the things that we don't talk about in our episodes, make sure you check that out as things such as ebooks, audio books, which are for sale. Also, it has things with different affiliate links, that helps us pay the bill. So make sure you check this out, it's at nichebloggingtips.com/resources, that's nicheblogging,tips.com/resources.
This is a helpful list that I came up with in some of these are actually blog blogging tools that I currently use, or I've used in the past. That's great for especially if you're a beginner blogger. So the first one that I'm going to talk about, actually, the first group I'm going to talk about, these are affiliate programs. These are affiliate programs that are pretty much easy to join. I would call them affiliate marketplaces. Now within them, there's, you know, different affiliate programs. But this is an easy route. When you use any of these three that I'm going to mention, the first one I'm going to mention is impact impact radius, the impact radius affiliate program has helped me a lot, especially in some of the main programs that I use for content. And you know, just programs that I like to promote impact radius. The second one of the affiliate program is ShareASale, ShareASale, same thing I use, so many of the programs within their marketplace, and they can help you monetize your blog. Also, these are, like I said, they're not hard programs to join at all. The third one is commission firstname.lastname@example.org Commission Junction, I'm gonna have a link in the description of the show notes are in the show notes, commission jokes, and so impact rate is Commission Junction ShareASale.
The second group, I'm gonna discuss this course creation tools, there are a whole different, a bunch of different ones, but the ones that I'm going to mention, there's two of them. And that's Thinkific. And Kajabi. Thinkific is a real easy course creation to to use, I have a lot of different features on our Kajabi the same thing, you know, you just have to choose which one that works best for you. I like using Thinkific myself, because it's just easy, it's easy. And they actually have a free version of it as well. So Thinkific and Kajabi. The third that I'm going to talk about, and this is just in terms of content creation, or just overall, a great productivity too. And that's CoSchedule, call schedule has a product, a couple of different products or products related to your calendar. Now some people use, you know, different tools such as notion and all these other tools that may be great for productivity, I like CoSchedule, so co schedule.
The last tool I'm going to talk about is a tool that I use for my eBooks, use them to hosts my ebook. And you can use them to host and to, you know, to host your, I guess your courses or what have you. So if you have a, you know, like a small course or whatnot and you want to sell it on this platform and you want them to host the files or what have you. It's called PayHip.
PayHip. It's an easy it's a very easy tool to use. The good thing that I like about pay hip is all you have to do is connect your Stripe account for payments you can connect it to pay here, or what have you and the payment system is it's not difficult at all to to hook up and I guess the oh what am I trying to say? I guess the the fees, payment process and fees. They're easy to understand and it's you Easy to use, they have a paid version and a and a free version, the pay version, you're gonna pay less and payment processing fees and vice versa for if you don't, if you don't, if you use the free version, it all depends on what your situation is. But if if your funds are low, you can use the free or maybe if you just want to use the free version, and you don't mind paying a little higher in terms of if you sell like an e book and payment processing fees a bill the more they'll take a little more of the share, I think it's like 5% or some some minute regarding the in the transaction fees and all that good stuff, I think it winds up to about 7% or something like that on the free version.
Don't quote me on it. That's why I have in the show notes, I have all the different links for everything that I talked about. So I talked about some affiliate programs, you can join you can help monetize your blog, course creation, if you are using you know, email or if you're given away a freebie or what have you are free course, you can use these courses or if it's paid course to you can use these course to and then if you want to want to use a good, great calendar, a great calendar for your content, great content calendar, you can use CoSchedule. And then if you want to, if you have ebooks that you're selling, and you need somewhere to host the files and all that you can host files and the payment process and all the legal stuff goes through one place.
