The only people I know off, who are making money, but still I have not seen an income statement to that effect and hence I am very cautious, are the people who run very large mailing lists. When you have numbers in the 25,000+ readers in your mailing list, it is very well possible to make affiliate money off them. However, having said this, there are two caveats to the above statement.
Affiliate marketing on YouTube is perhaps the fastest and easiest way to guarantee consistent traffic streams to your affiliate websites. When you sell products for other people, what you need is a quality YouTube channel. Today I am going to share with you how to begin marketing those products on YouTube.
The truth is much more complicated. It’s true that affiliate programs can be sources of phantom revenue and off-brand promotion. But managed properly, they can also make up 5-15 percent of online revenue and have an ROI among the highest of any online channel. CMOs are realizing that affiliate marketing can be an important part of their arsenal and are integrating the channel into their overall marketing strategies.
P.S. My Two FAVORITE Products for January 2018 are 7 Figure Cycle and Inbox Blueprint – check them out next month – while neither is directly related to Youtube marketing, they’re two of my favorite courses that will be released this entire YEAR. they’ll both be available mid January, but they won’t be around in February!
Facebook is testing the new ads with a “small group” of U.S. publishers, and will split ad revenue with them — 55 percent to the publisher and 45 percent to Facebook. The ads can’t run until a video has been rolling for at least 20 seconds, and ads must be at least two minutes apart, Facebook says.
Find affiliate codes and paste them into your site. Once your site is well-established and respected for its content, you can begin to link out to programs. Search the various affiliate networks and look for products that relate to the theme of your website. Grab the affiliate code from your account and paste it into your site. As people visit your site and click these links, you can begin earning money from the referrals in your articles.
As search engines have become more prominent, some affiliate marketers have shifted from sending e-mail spam to creating automatically generated web pages that often contain product data feeds provided by merchants. The goal of such web pages is to manipulate the relevancy or prominence of resources indexed by a search engine, also known as spamdexing. Each page can be targeted to a different niche market through the use of specific keywords, with the result being a skewed form of search engine optimization.
Note that merchants reaching out to establish direct relationships with affiliates will only focus on the “whales” who generate the most revenue. While it’s possible to run a few affiliate marketing relationships directly, opening up this benefit to everyone quickly becomes overwhelming.
Email Marketing: This method involves the marketer to embed a form for email subscription for visitors on the site. You get to have the visitor’s name and email which would help you maintain a long-lasting relationship and the lead gets a regular newsletter from you.
I was surprised to find that Facebook video ads can be up to 120 minutes in length. This is insanely long, and the chances of someone completing a 2-hour video while on a social network seem pretty unlikely.
Action Item: If you know your niche and want to promote a physical product do a quick google search for “product name affiliate program” or “your niche affiliate program” to get an idea of what other options are out there.
Perhaps you’ve seen this before. You’re in a “learn online marketing” type forum. A person publishes a post complaining that they can’t make a dime online. But in their signature line they have something along the lines of “I Made 50 Million Dollars with This” followed by their affiliate link.
Ryan Kwa is an excellent trainer and thus comes highly recommended. Please extend my thanks to him again. However, please allow me to suggest two aspects of the training centre which need improvement (kindly take this as positive feedback from a well meaning client): 1) the physical classroom environment (esp. furniture) needs upgrade. 2) As your centre offers quite some social media and digital advertising courses, your website’s look and feel doesn’t do your centre any justice unfortunately. It needs to be more enticing. I am an exception because I made the concerted effort/ took the time to read the course offering and the trainer’s credential in spite of the “heavily worded and formidable” website.

Note: Requesting an interview is a great way to start getting to know an influencer. After that, just keep nurturing your relationship and building your list. You will probably need 5,000-10,000 subscribers to start gaining attention from the biggest authorities.
