Videos – add affiliate links to YouTube descriptions and tell people you left a link there. You can’t edit a video once it’s uploaded though, so I had a hard time keep mine up-to-date. It requires more maintenance than posts especially if there’s a lot of change in your industry.
I knew affiliate marketing existed but I had no idea how it worked and how easy it could be to start making money with it. I also saved your list on my internet favorites so thank you for that. I always enjoy your content and appreciate all the hard work you guys do!
I had no idea about the value in social media marketing. Boot Camp Digital opened my eyes to all the free tools available to help promote an agency. As a non-profit organization, this is huge. Thank you!
You put a CPA ad on your site. A reader clicks on it and is asked to complete some sort of action such as purchasing a product, signing up for a newsletter, providing an email address, printing a coupon or subscribing to something. You get paid when the reader completes the required action.
A couple of weeks ago I published a post explaining the basic process you need to go through if you want to become a YouTube partner, which allows you to display ads and monetize your uploaded videos. My buddy John Chow followed that post up with an explanation of his approach to YouTube monetization, which is quite different.
Pay Per Lead or PPL – where companies pay a fixed commission for every qualified action that it generated. This action could be Installation, Online Form Submission, Free Trial, Short Survey and many others.
Log onto Amazon with your affiliate log on. Look for products you know your friends and family will like. Once you find your product, share the link on social media, making sure your affiliate code is in the link. This way, you can earn a little extra on everything sold on Amazon’s main page.
It’s called affiliate marketing. And a reported 80% of brands use affiliate marketing to sell their products. You’ve probably been part of this type of online business, even if you didn’t realize it… on the customer side, anyway.

Brilliant write up there, at least beginning bloggers can get to know more about affiliate marketing and how profitable it is. On my blog I talked about way bloggers make money and affiliate marketing was one of them. Thanks for this post once again. Jude
There’s obviously a lot of work that goes into each of the three points above; building up substantial traffic takes months (or even years) of effort, and finding the right affiliates involves never-ending research.
It only makes sense for us to discuss affiliate marketing YouTube strategies. As video becomes more and more prominent, this is a trend that’s just not going away—so the sooner you can hop on board and utilize your YouTube, the better.
Yes. Well, it’s a smart idea to put somewhere in your description that you might be using affiliate links, kind of like your FDC disclosure, but it’s kind of like an affiliate link disclosure. I think that’s a smart thing. Even though YouTube hasn’t come out saying you need to do that, basically you should just to be super, super safe.

I loved the landing page idea. This would be very effective in one case ONLY. If you are promoting a product or a an eBook this would work very fine OR increasing an Email list by offering something for FREE. You know in this life “Nothing is for FREE”. So you are giving your visitor for an example “A guide to how to install a blog template in wordpress or blogger” or “how to monetize your blog?” a FREE guide will drive this visitor to type his email and hit the subscribe button right away. But if the visitor a PayPal Button he just click the MAGIC X button on the top of his browser. Landing pages are very effective when you know how to use them.

You should put that you’re a participant of Amazon’s affiliate program somewhere on your website. But do people know when they’re clicking a link if it’s an affiliate link or not? Depends on if they look at the entire URL string or if you tell them. Frankly I think as long as you’re providing value for the reader and as long as you put the Amazon disclosure in your blog post then that is good.
Cookie stuffing involves placing an affiliate tracking cookie on a website visitor’s computer without their knowledge, which will then generate revenue for the person doing the cookie stuffing. This not only generates fraudulent affiliate sales but also has the potential to overwrite other affiliates’ cookies, essentially stealing their legitimately earned commissions.
Simple. 1000s of people sign up and promote their products in the hopes of making an income. If 1000s of people are actually promoting the product, then the products would be flying off the shelves – the sad reality of it is – they are not (in majority of the cases).
Sure, you may already have a job and other commitments. Just record a lot of material on weekends and spend some time each day editing and uploading content. Many new people make the mistake of uploading just one or two videos to test the waters.
Yeah. The concern from an SEO perspective is that YouTube, their goal is to keep people on YouTube for as long as possible, watching as much content as possible, engaging with as many videos as possible, seeing as many ads as possible. And so if your video ends the viewing session for a viewer, like they watch your video, then they click on that link and go to that company’s website and buy the product, that’s great for you, but your video could potentially not perform. If everyone who watches the video took you up on that offer, your video could potentially not perform as well as it otherwise might.
One way to increase affiliate account activity is to include your tracking link under the “About” section of your YouTube channel, along with any other social platforms you use. Watch the video below to learn how to utilize this strategy.
Add captions to your video. Facebook will autoplay your video in the news feed. Add captions so your videos can be consumed with the sound off. Captions on Facebook video ads increase view time by an average of 12%(14).
Are you thinking of becoming an affiliate marketer? Confused about how you can launch such a business? If your answer “yes” to both questions, you are at the right place to learn everything you need. The best answer to both questions would be this:
I was planning to start but not getting proper mentor but your article inspired me to do right away. So i contacted few of affiliated sites. lets see… what going on next… thanks for sharing this article with us.
Choose products or services that are relevant to your niche. If your site is about children’s books and you promote car insurance, at best you’ll look like you don’t know what you’re doing and at worst, you’ll be branded a “spammer.” Once you develop a bad reputation as a spammer or an “out to make a quick buck” type of affiliate marketer, it’s incredibly difficult to go back. Start out with high standards and you’ll be fine. Simply put, promoting bad stuff makes you look bad and will hurt you in the long run.
It’s important when learning about the whole process not to feel overwhelmed, so we’re going to finish off with an outline of what you can get started with straight away. So let’s dive in and discover what’s involved.

Awesome article Ben, many great suggestions. I felt like you didn’t mention using video ads on Facebook though, we find that using video ads gives us a much higher ROI than image ads. Also, you don’t need a ton of time, effort or money to make a few with the online video makers out there today. For example we doubled our retargeting results by adding a video ad (made with our own video ad creation software) to our campaign.
One of the most natural ways to include affiliate links on YouTube is to do honest product reviews. Let’s say you start a YouTube Channel focused on fitness. You could create videos reviewing products like Fitbit, exercise equipment, and other gear people who work out would find useful. Then you could link to the product on Amazon and potentially earn a commission if someone makes a purchase.
Creating blog would not be enough to start earning money. Since every company, blog or website need to be promoted to generate business. You should apply all digital marketing techniques to promote your blog which includes SEO, PPC, promoting your blog on social media groups relevant to your niche etc.
In February 2000, Amazon announced that it had been granted a patent on components of an affiliate program. The patent application was submitted in June 1997, which predates most affiliate programs, but not PC Flowers & Gifts.com (October 1994), AutoWeb.com (October 1995), Kbkids.com/BrainPlay.com (January 1996), EPage (April 1996), and several others.
To get the best results and earn high affiliate commissions from your YouTube channel one must create engaging and sustainable videos which become a tough competition for others. And make sure when the appealing video ends, the user clicks on the affiliate link given in the description part. Developing audiences for your YouTube channel is something on which you have to work hard.
