We Bought Pro Food Blogger!

Back in 2013 when we first opened the doors to Food Blogger Pro, another website was also getting its start: Pro Food Blogger.

Since then, Food Blogger Pro grew into a thriving membership site full of passionate, driven, and hard-working food bloggers, and Pro Food Blogger flourished into a go-to resource for food blogging, photography, and traffic tips.

See any similarities? We did, too.

We realized there was a need to simplify the branding of our membership site and Pro Food Blogger’s resource. It didn’t make sense to have two brands with similar names doing similar things.

That’s why we’re excited to announce that we recently acquired Pro Food Blogger!

Announcing the Deals and Discounts Page!

I don’t know about you, but I love a good deal. But even better, I like it when I can see the value of that deal. What’s the difference? A deal without a lot of value can be a sale on an item I never use. But it’s on sale! I must buy it! And then it sits on the shelf never to be touched again until it’s inevitably tossed out. Not such a good value. A deal on something that you use every day? Now THAT’S what I’m talking about. I think you may know where I’m headed with this….

And the story goes like this…

The Food Blogger Pro Affiliate Program and Welcome Jasmine

From a business perspective, one of the things that Lindsay and I have really come to believe in is the power of passive income.

Passive income, specifically passive income through affiliate marketing, has really helped us take our monetization game to the next level. For example, with Pinch of Yum, when we recommend products that we love and link to those products as an affiliate, we are able to earn passive income from the referral sales.

This monetization strategy is different than advertising and sponsorships, which can fluctuate from quarter to quarter, month to month, and even week to week. The passive income we earn as affiliates for our favorite products and services can be more consistent and predictable.

One of the things we love about Food Blogger Pro is the fact that we’re able to offer the benefits of passive income to our members through the FBP affiliate program (more on that in a bit!), but we noticed that often times affiliates would sign up for the program and not really know the most effective way to promote FBP to their readers.

Fun post!

Lindsay and I would like to introduce you to Beth Hornback, Food Blogger Pro’s brand new Community Happiness Specialist.

Many Food Blogger Pro members probably already know Beth from her active presence on the community forum. She’s been a member of Food Blogger Pro for over one year now and has already contributed over 400 posts to the community forum.

As a matter of fact, Beth was the first Food Blogger Pro member to reach the (honorable but strangely named) “Fellow” status on the community forum after posting more than 250 times.
