Excellent numbers! Keep up the good work 🙂 I have a quick question for you, what’s your take on Prosociate? Associate Goliath? etc. I installed Prosociate on one of my sites and imported a ton of products from Amazon. Next, I noticed I’m getting a ton of clicks, but zero conversions. Any thoughts?

There are a lot of ways to make money online. You can start a blog, open an Etsy shop, take part in Amazon FBA, or even offer information products like eBooks or courses for sale. Plus, you can sell services as a freelancer or use popular sites to earn extra money each month as a usability tester, search engine evaluator, or survey taker. When you think about it, there are quite a few ways to make an online income each month.
The entire clip clocks in at just about five seconds. If you notice it in your Instagram feed, you’re likely to stop and watch the whole thing. They knew it would be tough to keep your attention—and they decided to work with that, by making it almost impossible to stop watching.
Hi Chris. I still have a hard time visualizing making this kind of money selling amazon products, because the payouts are so low. You need to move a tremendous amount of merchandise in order to make decent money. The FBA makes more sense, because the commissions can be so much more.
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.
Excellent article Andrew. What’s your preferred video making software for an e-commerce brand with a limited team and budget (cannot spend thousands of dollars on a single video)? I have no video making skills so I really need something simple to start with, but need to create something for my FB campaigns that looks good. I have good product images to start with. Is there a good solution out there that I’m overlooking?
I am a newbie in affiliate marketing and I want to have my own passive income by creating my very first website and this book has shown me a lot when it comes to affiliate marketing tips. The book has a detailed step by step guide to be a successful affiliate website but it will not show you how to create a website which is a very different topic. But overall this book has offered me important points when it comes to marketing online.
To stray from the legalese for a moment and put a bow on all this, there are a couple other things that suggest that using affiliate links is acceptable. For one, highly successful channels have, and continue to, feature affiliate links. Secondly, everyone benefits from quality content that is enhanced by affiliate links. YouTube gains videos and viewers that they can monetize, Amazon (and other businesses with affiliate programs) gains a new inlet to their shopping site, the viewers get entertaining and informative content that offers them a way to buy what’s been discussed, and the content creators (you) are rewarded for hard work and creativity. In a situation where everyone wins, it is hard to see why anyone would want to fiddle with it.
Brands have experienced notable success by publishing Facebook videos—especially “native” Facebook videos (as opposed to links from YouTube videos, Vimeo videos, or video content published on other platforms)—according to research conducted by analytics firm eMarketer.
I would then get a hosting provider (a place to put the website on the internet) and a domain name (the name for the website), and then install WordPress so I could start playing around with the look of my website. I’d browse some free ‘themes’ (pre-designed ‘looks’ for websites) if I was tight on cash, or I might buy a high-quality one if I had the money.
Compare this to a CPM-based advertising campaign, where an advertiser pays a fixed amount to get a fixed number of ad impressions. (E.g., they may pay $10,000 to have 1 million ads shown on a publisher site, or a $10 CPM.) That campaign may be unsuccessful however if the ad impressions don’t convert into clicks and/or eventual sales.
You’ll notice there are a few options to build your beautiful video. You can upload a video, browse through your library, or create a slideshow with images. In most cases you’ll want to grab a pre-made video from your desktop or promote a video that you previously posted organically.
The criteria for live video ads is slightly different. Publishers need to be live for at least four minutes before they can take an ad break, and the stream must have at least 300 concurrent viewers. Each ad will last 20 seconds.
E-commerce websites are a bit different. You can still use affiliate marketing on them, but you’re right, how well you do with affiliate marketing is often dependent on your traffic. Still, some key affiliates on a static website can still bring in some decent income. And you’re right that “if you build it they will come” no longer applies to websites anymore given the sheer number of websites on the internet. My suggestion is to get out there, take part forums where your potential customers would hang out, comment on blogs providing useful information and do your best to get your name out there in as many ways as you can think of.
In affiliate marketing it is important to test various promotional strategies and track your online marketing efforts. If the merchant provides reports based on UTM codes, don’t forget to tag your campaigns. It will help you understand what kind of campaigns work with your audience.
The initial startup work can be very intensive, so it’s important to choose a niche in which you won’t mind working for prolonged periods. This can help set you up for success as you get your new career off the ground.

MY biggest struggle is knowing how to put the promotion together and having everything in place when you promote it. I would kill for a Step-by-Step hold your hand and let me show you once how to do it correctly Mapped Blueprint. I have seen lots of sales pages but when you get them from the vendor they look a lot of the times nothing like the Org sales page, have never written a sales page before and it becomes overwhelming and confusing and then totally frustrating
Facebook suggests creating videos that are no longer than 15 seconds for the maximum impact. Your goal should be to deliver a quick message and then direct your viewers to platforms where they can learn more.
Once your Facebook video ads have gained a significant amount of views you need to take a step back and determine if the money spent is yielding a return. How many people are watching videos? Clicking on your ads? Visiting your website after watching? Understanding how your Facebook video ads impact your target audience will help improve your video production and advertising strategy to ensure your business is positively impacted. (Check out our new benchmarks for Facebook ads to see if your metrics are where they should be.)
