Want to make money online? With zero investment! Affiliate marketing is the best way to make money online.
Do I need a website? NO!! What? Yes you don’t need a website to make money by affiliate marketing. What if I have a good blog? Wow that’s awesome it will boost your income.
Ok let’s move into the topic. In this post we are going to discuss the affiliate marketing so I’m going to divide this post into two categories,
- With your own blog
- Without a blog
I will discuss these two in a second but before that we have to define affiliate marketing in a simple way
The idea behind the affiliate marketing is you are going to promote other peoples physical or digital products to your audience and when someone buys something you will earn a commission fee .that’s the simple idea behind the affiliate marketing.
When talking about the affiliate marketing there are mainly four parties involved to this who are they,
- Actual product creator
- The marketing network or platform
- Affiliate marketers
- End consumer
Actual product creator will create the product ( Physical or digital )and he will add his product to the marketing network or to the platform, as affiliate marketers we choose them to promote to our audiences and then people will buy the products we will earn a commission fee for that successful purchase. That’s the simple story behind the affiliate marketing.
Basically you can use affiliate marketing in two ways,
- Create your own product and let affiliate marketers promote and you got profits
- Sell other peoples product an become an affiliate marketer
In this post we are talking about the second option right,
Ok let’s move into the first part,
How to make money from affiliate marketing through your blog
When talking about making money using affiliate marketing in your blog what are the steps?
- You can create your own content (blog post or video content) and after that you can find an affiliate product related to that content
- You can first select a product, then you can create content (blog post or video content) about that including those links,
This is the main two ways you can use. Ok let’s talk about the first way,
Let’s say you are writing health-related blog so you can write down your content as an example “ How to lose weight less than 7 days” so if you write this kind of post then you can find what kind of affiliate programs or product related to this post then you can apply those link to your blog post.
The second way is you can select affiliate product and when creating content the easiest way is you can review the product that you select and describe the pros and cons about the product or compare with another product.
Know you know the ways to create the content, but where’s the money?
You have to promote your content and bring targeted traffic to your blog then you will make your money right? Read more about how to bring traffic
Ok then let’s move on to next part,
How to start Affiliate marketing without a blog?
As I mentioned earlier you don’t need a blog or your own site to start affiliate marketing so let’s see what we can do,
Start a YouTube channel
You can start a YouTube Channel and create quality content in your niche / or you can genuinely review a product or service and add affiliate link into your video description people will buy using your link guess what? You will earn money!
Through Email Marketing
If you have already built an email list you can then send emails with affiliate links.
You also promote your affiliate products through social media but remember some network won’t allow this!
Using your own network
If you have a good network (Friends..etc) you can ask them to buy the products using your link this will bring you money!
You can create an EBook including affiliate links and make it viral and boom! You will earn money!
You can answer the questions of the people in your niche and recommend a product with your link. Some forums may not allow.
Using pay-per-click ad
You can directly use Google Ad to promote your affiliate products
Now we have discussed the way to earn money through affiliate marketing but what are the best affiliate networks?
There is a lot of platforms and programs you can register and there are also individual sites you can register directly with the product owner and start promote but in hear I’m going to tell you some popular platforms to start as a beginner.
Clickbank is one of the most popular affiliate marketplaces. you can find thousands of affiliate programs. Just register with them and select your niche, find a good program, start promoting it and Earn money!
This is the affiliate network of the world’s largest e-commerce giant. you can just simply signup with them and you can promote the products of Amazon.
There are other networks like,
You have to choose these networks according to your niche.
Things to remember Before Starting Affiliate marketing
You have to be patient, nothing will happen in just one day there is no magic formula so you have to work hard create quality content and promote them as much as you can. That will bring you the success
Don’t try to promote so many products at once or unrelated product’s into your niche choose product wisely. Before promoting the product ask yourself “if I buy this product for me is it good” if the answer is “Yes” then promote and share it with your audiences.
Attract Targeted Traffic
When you bring traffic to your web site try to bring “Targeted Traffic” this will increase your conversion rate.
Always try to be updated
Everything changes rapidly so you have to face changes. Try to be updated
Start today not tomorrow, work hard these will lead you to the success
