When it comes to the videos themselves, make sure to keep them short and entertaining. Depending on the video content, like a tutorial for example, your video may run a little longer, but try to keep videos less than 10 minutes to keep your viewers attention. With all the YouTube videos out there today, it is important to make yours stand out. If possible, upload videos with high quality sound and display.
While it may not have been the deciding factor for changing my business model, it was the first time I started thinking about whether producing training courses was optimal. There ultimately were many other factors that led to my decision (course shelf life, hours of work to create, revenue peaks and valleys), it put the wheels in motion.

How may niche sites do you have vs. authority sites? What would you estimate is your earings for each catagory on average. I would ecpect that the revenue does varry quite a bit through out the year. Just trying to establish a benchmark to measure against.
Customer belongs to the merchant.Your stats will let you know how many sales where made of what product, but in most cases, you’ll have no information about who made the purchase, which makes it difficult to market for re-sales.
Thanks for this great advice John, I dont know why i didnt think of this earlier, it didnt even occur to me that I could add links to the video descriptions. I have a few video that do pretty well on youtube so I’m going to try this strategy on those videos and see how they convert in terms of affiliate sales. Thanks again.
Be Discerning with your Data: Understand and define good performance of your Facebook advertising prior to exploring this new format. Set up success metrics that will provide a clear view of whether your ad is meeting goals that matter for your business. View through rates will likely increase but you have to ask whether that is because people are actually consuming your content or just dealing it with it so they can finish the video they really wanted to watch. Review your data carefully and use it to test the answer to this question. After all, you don’t want to be the brand keeping consumers from enjoying their internet experience.
Affiliates receive credit for a conversion by placing a cookie on the computer of visitors they send to a merchant site, allowing the network to attribute sales to specific partners. Many merchants will give credit for a sale to an affiliate even if the sale comes after the initial visit to the site. For example, assume:
These affiliate programs have a huge number of merchants within their catalogue. When searching out a merchant to partner with, don’t be surprised to find them within one of these affiliate programs listed above.

From all my knowledge and experience I believe the 7-day plan is an old saying now. Everyone is smart enough to know this. One must send e-mails to a prospect addressing as if he is talking to a friend. A person can send more than a single email in a day if his title and content is worth reading.. Else, nice crisp information

Yah, it’s something he added in to the v2.0 one he released a few months ago. It’s a pretty sweet plugin and I’ve been recommending it to everyone for a while now. If you already have a plugin though I’d suggest just using that one though, no sense in buying a ton of them.
In the first category are serious content creators who happen to place the occasional affiliate link in their videos. For them, affiliate marketing is one more way for them to make money, not the only way (these folks often make money with ad views, platforms like Patreon, and sponsored content).

I know 30% of my earnings came from products people bought because I happened to be the one that sent them onto Amazon.com. For example, I sold a watch a while ago for $5,000 and got a $400 commission but I don’t even own a website that even remotely discusses watches. This is one of the other reasons why I love using Amazon’s affiliate program.
That is also one of the reasons that at the Front-end of my Sales Funnel you can find an interesting product that’s about using (viral) video’s for for example getting more visitors to your Blog. Btw. on my own Blog you can also find a ‘Making Off’ with an attempt of mine to make a ‘Promo Video’ (actually a ‘Photo Slide Show Video’ made from a bunch of Vacation Photo’s, and you can get an idea how you can easily make them yourself.)

Massive audience: I won’t repeat the statistics again, but you already know this: YouTube’s traffic is massive (and growing). People across the world are watching millions of videos on every topic under the sun. You won’t find any industry that doesn’t have a hungry audience waiting to buy.
Firstly, pick a topic that you’re interested in that also has a lot of market potential. Think of something that you like, and consider whether there would be many products associated with it, or much of an audience. You can find a topic (or “niche,” as affiliates call it) with a little research. You’ll find lessons to help you with this process in the market research section of Affilorama’s free lessons.
