AffiliateOrganizationChartThe good thing about blogging is that it gives you the opportunity to make money while you do something that you love. One of the best things that I have discovered since I started blogging is affiliate programs. It allows me to place advertisements, both text and graphical, on my website and earn money from them.

The downside of affiliate programs? Not all of them will work for every website. (But that is an article for another day.)

I know that when I first got started with affiliate programs, I had a hard time keeping up with the who, what when, where and how of it. I was always requesting that my various programs I participated in email me my log in information because I could never remember what username and password went with which site.

That is when I decided to create a form that would help me keep all of my affiliate information organized. My form is divided into several sections so you can have all of your affiliate information at your fingertips:

  • Date joined: This is where you would put the date you were accepted into the affiliate program.
  • Affiliate company: Write down the name of the affiliate company.
  • Paydays: Place the exact date your affiliate company sends out their payments. If it’s the 15th of each month, note it here.
  • Payout frequency: How often does your affiliate program send out payments? Is it weekly, biweekly or monthly?
  • Payout minimum: What is the minimum amount you have to earn each pay period before a payment is made to you? Note that dollar amount here.
  • Website URL: Put the affiliate website address here.
  • Username: Place the username that you use to login here.
  • Password: Your password to log in in would go here.

There is also a section under this to note several paydays. This way you can keep track of your paydays and the amount received. It is always good to keep a record of this, not just for tax purposes, but to see whether or not a particular affiliate program is working for you.
