THIS POST MAY CONTAIN AFFILIATE LINK, WHICH MEANS WE MAKE A SMALL COMMISSION IF YOU PURCHASE THROUGH THOSE LINKS, AT NO EXTRA COST TO YOU.
I teamed up with the Bluehost Affiliate program back in 2018. As soon as I got approved I made a post on How to start a blog.
I pinned that post on Pinterest. That’s all I did!
After posting it, Bluehost saw the potential to reach more clients for them. So, they increased commission amount from $65 USD to $75 USD per signup. I heard from other bloggers that they get a commission up to $100 – $120 per signup depending on the coverage.
I was busy making content and doing interviews with numerous entrepreneurs. Didn’t focus on promoting the affiliate program but in just a couple of months and with only 230 clicks I made $150 in total. Isn’t that exciting?
This process was very simple and now I will be promoting the Bluehost affiliate program more often to maximize the revenue.

Before I started the “Influencing Entrepreneur” blog, I used to spend almost all my days on Google and Pinterest reading how individuals are making money from home. It was fascinating to know that numerous people have been able to support their family working from home and also took it to the next level that created time and financial freedom. The process of work during the free period from any part of the world with no restriction on how much anyone can generate every day appeared promising to me. I was researching online work for months but didn’t take any action. There were 1000’s of people claiming earning money from home is possible but I never took action. I doubted myself thinking this might not be possible in my case. Indeed, it was one of the worst mindsets I had!
One of the strategies I learned from bloggers was that if anyone wants to make money from home, they have to do something that will benefit others. The information I share should help the audience to take away some value.
After brainstorming a day, I felt for a platform where I can share stories of people making an impact around the world and information that educate the young generation toward entrepreneurship. I brought the domain “InfluencingEntrepreneur.com”
I felt ashamed that it took me less than 15 min to start this blog after I set my mind. I spend more than 3 months procrastinating and underestimating myself.
Till the day, this blog has over 100K followers on Facebook and thousands of readers receiving education on entrepreneurship. Not only the mindset of taking action has helped me to make a living from home but I have been able to start several successful blogs eg: Think 7 Figures and Passport Daily.
This proves that once you start the process, it will feel easy to replicate it.
The blog started to grow rapidly and I hired a team of freelancers to help me maintain the site.
Here’s how you can start a blog for just $2.95 per month and make money with Bluehost affiliate program.

First, click on “Get started now” button.
It will lead you to a page where you can “Select your plan“. Here’s you will get 3 different option:
As I mentioned before it’s easier plus faster to promote your work as a brand than as a blog. Once you have chosen a name, your next step is to buy a domain. If you already have bought a domain name you can simply choose ” I have a domain name” if not you can choose “New domain“. In my case, it was “influencingentrepreneur.com ”
After you choose your hosting plan and domain name. It will refer you to the payment. Enter your account information. Use your frequently used email because your login information will be sent to it.
After you choose your account plan and checked domain privacy protection. It’s time to pay for it. Don’t forget to tick on “I have read and agree to Bluehost’s terms”. After that hit submit.
