Just Joined Blucigs As an Affiliate
Affiliate Programs are not all Equal
I have just joined blucigs.com as an affiliate. I have been on Hub Pages for five weeks now, and while I knew I wanted to make money, and I knew it would take a long time, I did not yet know what was allowed.
As AdSense chooses our ads I was unsure how to go about marketing. I have known about blu cigs affiliate program for about eight months but had no way to get a link out there, and so I did not join. It amazes me that this is free.
Adsense is free, and yet some fly by night companies try to sell you the right to do it. I got ripped off by one of the scams out there. I was supposed to get information for a dollar. When I found out it was a free trial, I did not even look at the info. Needless to say, no where in the e-mail or the ad did they say there would be a recurring monthly charge. I never got that money back. They said once they charged me it was nonreturnable. They cancelled my account, which meant I also lost access to the information I never read, for the two remaining weeks on my "membership".
Let me state here, That Company is in No Way affiliated with AdSense. Google, as I did call Google, was trying to solve the problem when I called.They had numerous complaints. The sad part is, those people on the phone, think they work for Google, and they don't. The person I spoke with at Google said they had seen the checks and "They don't even look like our checks!"
No affiliate programs are not all created equal. Adsense is Free.Blu cigs is free.
AdSense will pay you according to their policy which is not easy for me to understand, but I am learning and earning. The journey started with a penny. My biggest day was 99cents, totally passive income! That is the key, I did not work on hubs that day, or the day before. I had to go to school.
Now Blu Cigs is a little bit clearer on how you get paid. $15.00 for every starter kit, $2.00 for every refill kit. They will send you a check when you reach fifty dollars. I do not know yet that if you join I will get paid, but I do know that if you are planning on cashing in on a free affiliate program this one sounds pretty good.

So as a new affiliate I went and ordered my starter pack and cartridges. I checked on my affiliate page and sure enough I have $17.00 coming to me. I know I just spent money, but that is to me like a discount to a new lifestyle. Fellow Hubber Dale Mazurek, who if you don't know him I suggest you should check out, plans to quit smoking on May 6th. I have said i would hold him accountable, but I have also decided it is high time I quit too.
This was the biggest selling point. Blu Cigs offers non-nicotine cartridges. I know how bad cigarettes are for my health. I watched as my mother died from a lifetime of smoking. She did not die of cancer. Her disease was COPD. She couldn't breathe, and in the end there were two huge tanks behind her bed manufacturing oxygen from water. I am 48 years old. My mother was 72 when she died. I do not want to live forever, but I do not want my children or Grandchildren to see me like that.
I realize that it may never happen that way, but that is a gamble I choose not to take. I have tried patches, timers, cold turkey, counting. I have changed jobs to places I would not be able to smoke, and really came close, only to be transferred to a place where I could smoke.
Now that I am not working, money is an issue, as well as health. These are, in the long run, cheaper. They do not produce the odors that get in your carpet, nor the stains on your walls and mirrors and windows. They will not make it unpleasant or unsafe in my car. Cigarette smokers pay higher premiums for Auto and Homeowners insurance. One way to make money is to find ways to save it.
Now I don't have the where-with-all to become a super affiliate. So joiningBlu Cigs and becoming an affiliate yourself will not make me any money. But maybe you can plow through all the jargon and you can do that stuff I can't. To become an affiliate scroll down the page and click on affiliate. Then get your links, and send them off to friends, on your Facebook or other Social media profile page, your blog, anywhere really.
If you decide not to become an affiliate and you just want to enjoy a smoke when you can't have a cigarette please shop here. Or you know someone who would benefit from Non-nicotine cartridges, or the other fine products, well then share the hub love for me?
Thanks, I am ready and soon will be armed for my quit date!
