note that the profit you earn is at no extra cost tothe customer there are thousands of products and services that you can promote you mayeven be a frequent user of an affiliate product and not even know it companies that you arelikely to know who have affiliate programs are Uber, Amazon, eBay and Microsoft keepin mind that I have listed these companies as examples we will go into detail on howto find good products to promote later on affiliate marketing is a long-term businessventure and it usually takes average person 6 to 12 months to make the first sale, however,it snowballs pretty quickly the first time I tried affiliate marketing it took me sevenmonths to make my first sale but the second time it only took me three months becauseI had the experience and knew what I was doing pro tips it is recommended that you only sellproducts that you have personally used do not sell products just to make money sellproducts to help people you can increase the amount of sales you make by going the extramile to personally help customers with their questions by helping customers you can alsodramatically reduce the refund rate pretend the products you are selling your own gettingstarted with affiliate marketing the first thing you need to do is create a plan andbuild your online presence choose a niche it's very important to pick a niche that youare interested in and not one you think will make you the most money the reason is becauseaffiliate marketing is a long-term business venture and you need to create a lot of contentaround your niche if you pick a niche that you are not genuinely interested in you willget bored and quick you don't need to be an expert you just need to have a high levelof interest you then need to decide whether you are going to build a personal brand ora business brand to build an online business you need to have a website to build a websiteyou first need to purchase web hosting and a domain name I highly recommend BlueHostas they are very cheap and easy to use I also have a tutorial on how to use BlueHost toinstall WordPress in just one minute WordPress is the platform I recommend you use to createa website set up your email marketing they say the money is in the list which is truebecause those who subscribe to your mailing list will continue to receive your emailsand over time this will build loyalty and trust it is crucial that you always over deliverin value before trying to sell something otherwise your emails will be seen as spam and yoursubscribers will unsubscribe just to be clear value is not always educational content itcan also be content that is entertainment or escapism basically it is something thatanother person is willing to exchange their time for to set up your email marketing youneed two things a way to capture emails and a way to send emails there are many free pluginsthat allow you to capture emails but I personally use and highly recommend Thrive Leads ThriveLeads is very easy to use and allows you to create various pop-ups, widgets, in contentforms, lock content, forms and much more I will put a complete video demo of Thrive Leadsin the description below another thing to consider when setting up your mailing listis what information you would like to collect I personally only collect the user's firstname and email as it allows me to personalize every email according to their first namekeep in mind that people do not like filling in forms so keep it too minimal to send emailsto your mailing list you need a mailing service a aWeber is a mailing service that is usedby most of the top Internet marketers in the world and it is recommended if you are seriousabout your email marketing alternatively you can use MailChimp's free mailing plan whichis very limited compared a aWeber but definitely a great way to get started create your socialmedia accounts at the very least you should create a YouTube account and a Facebook pagein the description below I will put a link to a video which will show you how to inviteall of your friends to like your Facebook page in one go create content now that youhave created a website and social media accounts it's time to start creating content you firstneed to research what your target audience is struggling with and then provide them witha solution so how exactly do you research put yourself in their shoes or even betterfind various online communities in your niche and take note of the questions that have beenasked repetitively you can also use Q&A sites such as Quora to do your research once youfind a common problem that your audience is struggling with you can then provide themwith a solution in a detailed blog post if you like you can also use Google's KeywordPlanner to see how many times the topic is searched in Google each month see how I highlighteddetailed blog post this is because most people including myself initially fall into the trapof blogging just for the sake of creating content and you end up making content thatis "good enough" unfortunately content that is "good enough" doesn't cut it your contentneeds to be excellent! The better your content the more exposureit will get because great content is shared on social media and on other websites whichalso improves SEO it is also important to ensure that your blog posts are search enginefriendly so how do you make great content? You spend time or money if you prefer to hiresomeone to do for you for example are most people willing to spend the time to createa video like this and a blog post to go with it? Most likely not it.
It would be much easier for them to just sharemy video blog post or just linked to them from their website "Successful people do whatunsuccessful people are not willing to do" when creating content you should check tosee what already exists out there and then make something better slightly different forexample there are so many amazing tutorials on SEO for beginners that I simply can't competewith for this reason I decided to make my SEO tutorial a step-by-step video series tovisually show the basics of SEO in detail is my SEO tutorial better than the othersare there? To some people it is to others it isn't butbecause it took a different approach it appeals to a different audience to my competitorsonce you finish your blog post you can re-purpose it to extend its reach for example you canturn the blog post into an image video and/or audio file which then can be posted on yourwebsite and on different social media platforms such as Instagram, Pinterest, YouTube, Vivmo,iTunes SoundCloud, and so on.
Ly to shorten theURL of your affiliate link or the WordPress plugin ThirstyAffiliates to change the linkto include your URL this is how the original affiliate link looks like this is what itlooks like with bit.
Ly and this is what it looks like with ThirstyAffiliates Google recommendsthat you No-Follow affiliate links ThirstyAffiliates gives you the option to do this but if youare not using it then you can use another WordPress plugin or do it manually by usingHTML getting traffic getting traffic is the hardest and most important part of makingmoney online because without it you will not make any sales as we discussed earlier themost effective way to get traffic is to go above and beyond with your content and thenre-purpose for different platforms there are many different ways to get traffic but weare only going to focus on the methods that are free and that worked for me you shouldalso note that just because something works for me it doesn't necessarily mean it willwork for you so it is recommended that you try various tactics to find what works bestfor you how to drive traffic to your website is a huge topic but for now we're going tokeep it brief and simple so you can get started right away my top traffic sources are GoogleYouTube Facebook and Online Communities less take a look at these in more detail GoogleSEO is a very time-consuming and can take a long time for your efforts to kick in itusually takes between 6 to 12 months it can also be difficult to compete against the playerswho have been around for a while and have already established themselves for this reasonI don't recommend that you compete against them for the same keywords at the very beginninginstead target various long-tail keywords as they will allow you to rank your pagesmuch faster and easier once you have established yourself you can start competing against thebig players for the same keywords YouTube YouTube is amazing for traffic and it's ashame that a lot of people do not utilize it it is the second biggest search engineafter Google and the traffic you get from it is much higher quality than the trafficyou get from a Google search this is because people see and hear you which allows you tobuild a connection before they visit your website as opposed to when they stumble uponyour website from a Google search if you haven't already I highly recommend that you startbuilding a YouTube channel and start utilizing my YouTube SEO tricks Facebook the use ofa Facebook page has become a standard for every business but Facebook groups are stillvery underutilized Facebook groups are a great way to attain new customers and drive newtraffic you can use a program like the Facebook group poster to automatically join in postergroups by the most effective way to get quality traffic from groups is to be helpful joina private group relevant to your niche preferably one that is monitored and spam free and justbe helpful while dropping links to your website for example I joined an Australian businessgroup and every day I see several questions on my newsfeed if the question is somethingI have written a blog post about I briefly answer it and then drop a link to my postby doing this you can get quality traffic and build a good reputation people will bevery grateful that you took the time to answer their questions and took that extra step toprovide them with a link where they can learn more in detail if you see a question thatkeeps been asked but you don't have any content on it spent some time to create it so nexttime it pops up you can answer it and drop your link you can use this same tactic toshare your links in other online communities without being a spammer the only downsideto posting in Facebook groups is that you are unable to use your Facebook fan page topost this means that you will need to use your personal account or create a new oneit is very unlikely that your posts will show up on the first page of Google your answerswill eventually be pushed into the bottom never to be seen again pro tips it is a goodidea to have your website URL listed in your about me section invisible to the public youshould also have your Facebook fan page linked from your profile avoid getting into argumentswith people you will often see some very silly advice but you are there to drive trafficto your website and by school and someone you are wasting time even though it's niceto answer questions for people it's a little pointless for your business if you are unableto drop a link to your website along with your answer add your website URL to your Introsection so it is highly visible for when people click onto your profile online communitiessuch as forums and Q&A sites are a great way to drive traffic to your website while buildinga reputation just like posting the Facebook groups you need to help people with theirquestions and then drop a link to a relevant blog post the great thing about forums isthat you can add your website URL in your signature so even if you just participatein conversations without dropping a link you can still gain some traffic I recommend thatyou only contribute to forums that have a large user base and allow signatures thereare two main advantages that forums have over Facebook groups forums are often searchablethis means if someone searches the forum there is a chance that they will find your answeralso seen as forums are often indexed by Google there is a chance that your response willshow up in Google search results it also takes longer for your answers to be pushed intothe bottom never to be seen again blog consistently this is something even I struggle with becausethe content I create is so detailed and always includes a video however multiple studieshave shown that if you do not blog consistently the traffic will drop one of the case studiesdone by a world-class blogger showed that when he stopped looking for a month afteryears of blogging his traffic drop so dramatically they took him three months of consistent bloggingto getting back to where he was before he stopped affiliate marketing as a vendor themain focus of this guide is to learn how to make money online by selling other people'sproducts but let's spend a few minutes looking at affiliate marketing as a vendor in caseyou are planning to create a product in future already have one there are two ways to setup an affiliate system the easiest way is to add your product to an affiliate networkwhere you will be charged a small fee for each sale that is made alternatively you cantake the time to set up an affiliate system directly on your website if you are usingWordPress there are a few plugins available that can help you do this but your productwill get much more exposure using an affiliate network by using affiliate marketing as avendor you can get skilled Internet marketers to promote your product which will save youtime and money you can also look at what affiliates are driving sales and replicate their campaignsfor yourself to find a affiliate networks to list your product you can search Googlefor things like top affiliate, networks affiliate, networks for health affiliate, networks inAmerica and so on it is important to note that your landing pages need to be fine-tunedor you will have a hard time finding affiliates to push your offer as they are limited byhow much time and resources they have you need to be careful which affiliate you approveto promote your product because most of affiliates focus on making money they don't care if whatthey're doing is ethical or not and this can be very dangerous for your business if affiliatesstart sending you bad traffic or creating fake press about your product you will startgetting a lot of bad reviews from customers that have been lied to it's also importantto monitor the ads that affiliate's run because you can run into legal issues if they arecreating fake promises for example there may create a case studies and landing pages todrive sales hardships of affiliate marketing affiliate marketing is very difficult mentallyso before you make the decision to start you need to be certain that you are willing tocommit the hardest thing about making money online is that it takes a lot of time andeffort and just like everything else in life your heart needs to be in at 100% time ittakes a lot of time to reach a high monthly income with a affiliate marketing becauseyou need to build your social media accounts you website create excellent content and redistributethat content onto different media platforms you then need to promote it and wait for Googleand other search engines to index it creating an online business is very time-consumingand you will need to give up things in exchange for time to work on your business I understandthat it's very hard to find time when you are working full-time especially if you havea family with young kids however the truth is you can always make time but if you can'tthen unfortunately making money online is not for you pro tips watch a maximum of twomovies or TV shows a week replace music with pod casts and audiobooks if you catch publictransport to work use that time to work on your business if you drive to work stay backand work on your business until rush hour is over it's much more effective to work onyour business than to wait in traffic for hours instead of taking lunch breaks at worktake your food to another room and work on your business all of these things I thinkthat I did to get to where I am today staying motivated we as humans are not very patientand always want quick results but because affiliate marketing takes months you are likelyto start doubting yourself you will feel as if you are working so hard by getting nowhereyou may even begin looking for new opportunities and your commitment to a affiliate marketingwill slowly fade but you need to stay strong and keep going keep in mind that doubt anduncertainty is something that
