Start a website relevant to your niche. Before becoming an affiliate, many companies will want to know the URL of the website that use to sell their products. They do this because they want to ensure that the content on the website won’t hurt the company’s reputation.
Every time you make a sale, you get a percentage — a commission, in other words. That percentage can range from 5 percent to 25 percent (sometimes even higher), depending on the company and the product. It may not sound like much, but for high-ticket items, even 5 percent can be quite a lot. When you make hundreds of sales, the amount can certainly add up. Some of the highest commissions can be earned when you promote digital information products as an affiliate.
Hi, Steve! Thank you for sharing this. You’re right, I shy away from making videos because I don’t believe I can make one.

Now lets say you have 50,000 visitors a month, realistically, 100-150 or so will click in (I say this from experience and from having seen many high-traffic blogs, who do affiliate marketing). Out of this 100-150 clicks, they usually have 1-3 sales per month. That’s it.

All in all, it takes just a basic strategy to get started with affiliate marketing on YouTube. The goal is to get those first 10 videos done, and up. Then you can start pushing to get views and sales. Make sure that your videos inspire those sales or you won’t get them!
Awesome post Chris. I’ve recently started an Amazon niche site using WPZon Builder. Its pretty powerful. Does ReviewAzon have the ability to do comparison tables without much manual effort/intervention?
