We recently wrote about the best ways you could make money off of your blog and mentioned that taking part in affiliate programs were one of the most popular and easiest methods. Affiliate marketing in a nutshell allows you to earn a commission every time a reader clicks one of your links or uses your promo code to purchase a product on another business’ site.
This affiliate link you receive upon signing up is unique and is usually tracked by cookies. ‘Cookie length’ or ‘cookie life’ in affiliate marketing is basically the duration that your commission will be tracked. So if a cookie has a 30-day life, even if your reader doesn’t purchase a product right away, you will still receive a commission if your reader comes back within 30 days to make their purchase.
After the awesome release of our latest and lightning fast Builder, we’ve been keeping busy working on more new and exciting features. Our new global style feature is here to make your designing days faster than before, by allowing you to save and load your style settings as a pre-set style template, or ‘global style’, on any module.
Previously, you may have duplicated a text or image module in its entirety, then modified its contents. Or perhaps you would create your modules from scratch every time. Well it might work just as soundly as creating and labelling each of your global styles but the main issue still remains. What happens when you want to refresh your site in the future or make style adjustments?

Experts advise any budding businesses and blogs to start compiling an email database from their first day online to engage and connect your readers or first-time visitors.
