Thanks for the comment, yes I’ve had a lot of great feedback about the theme over the past several months especially when I spend several hundred dollars for a version update and send it out to everyone for free 😀
Totally agree with your opinion on affiliate marketing. I’m in the same space myself and can tell you what it feels like to earn $1000 commissions while literally sitting on the sofa watching TV. It is absolutely mind-blowing. High-ticket commissions are what sets apart the affiliate marketers that scale their business up to six or even seven figures to the ones that only make a few thousand a month. I run a website based on digital marketing an entrepreneurship. You should check out our affiliate program – it is guaranteed to blow your mind. 🙂
Write a pay-per-click ad. Pay-per-click (PPC) advertisements are the bread and butter of affiliate marketing, but how well you craft your ad could be the difference between success and failure. A strong PPC ad should:
Video length is less important than telling a cohesive and concise story. Your video ad shouldn’t be longer or shorter than it takes to tell your story well, so create a storytelling arc from the first frame to the last that keeps your audience interested along the way.
If you already have a list of at least a few hundred people and are planning to sell services like coaching, consulting, design, writing or other professional services (as in legal advice, finance, or real estate) in the short term, it’s probably best to hold off on affiliate marketing.
I’ve been trying to learn about affiliate advertising and how to implement it on my site. This is by far the clearest and best explanation of what it is and how it works. Thanks for writing this up Amy!
Of course, you don’t have to go it alone. With affiliate marketing, the company’s you partner and will often have marketing materials ready to go. These are proven landing pages, sales emails, banner ads, and other bits of copy that you can use in your own marketing efforts.
It comes with tons of research and website building done for you and extensive support, including the option to get detailed critiques from us to make sure every page of your site is optimized to sell.
Great video! 😃If i already uploaded the videos, can i now put the affiliate links and tick the box“This video contains a paid promotions”? Im still not making any money with my Chanel. 💄Could i put the makeup products affiliate links i use on my makeup tutorial videos, and the links to buy the outfits that I am wearing in my bellydance shows videos? 💃🏻 I am new on this, thanks!
You partner with the company that sells a product or service you’d like to recommend. As their partner, you are their affiliate (sometimes referred to as an associate, partner, internet marketer or affiliate marketer).
I think it really depends on what type of site you’re trying to build. For me, I don’t recommend all that much stuff on Amazon, and the payouts are low that it doesnt make a whole lot of sense to spend 8 hours on a 3,000 word tutorial blog post to try and sell a $10 book and make $.40 on it.
Let’s say you started a Facebook page devoted to all things yoga. You could use the Amazon Associates Program to recommend yoga gear, clothes, or books that people would genuinely like and benefit from using.
Basically, you as a publisher will be rewarded when you help a business by promoting their products or services. So for example, if you sign up for Tips and Ticks HQ’s affiliate program and promote it’s products then you will get a commission when the visitor you send from your site makes a purchase.
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.
Third, don’t forget to leverage social media (e.g., Twitter, Facebook, Reddit, Pinterest) to give an extra push to your videos. This part will work well if you have some viral element on your videos (e.g., rants, humor, how to stuff).
Emailing or otherwise contacting other bloggers and online marketers who share a common niche and asking them to either promote your product, or engaging in a mutually-beneficial cross-promotion wherein both you and the other blogger promote one another’s products
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.
One of the major factors that determines affiliate marketing success is the click rate on your site, or the percentage of your visitors who click on an affiliate marketing link. The more targeted and relevant the offers you present, the more likely your visitors are to click through to the merchant site.
There is no charge for joining an affiliate program, however, your total cost depends on what promotion technique you are using. For example, a blog post doesn’t cost a dime, but PPC marketing, email marketing, and advertising come with various price tags.
Take note of Facebook’s recommended video specs before uploading to ensure the highest quality viewer experience. A varying format could result in poor playback or black bars if your aspect ratio is off.
Your business goal that drives your Facebook marketing strategy should be to increase conversions. However, this goal has become difficult to achieve with increasing consumer expectations and rising competition for News Feed real estate.
The takeaway here is make sure your videos don’t need sound in order to be understood. Taking a little time to add captions could mean the difference between whether or not your Facebook videos get viewed.
To give you an idea of the scope of this and what’s possible, over the last 2 years I’ve made over $20k in affiliate commissions from one product alone. This includes an occasional mention in blog post, 2 webinars, and a handful of dedicated emails. That’s it.
In the infancy of affiliate marketing, many Internet users held negative opinions due to the tendency of affiliates to use spam to promote the programs in which they were enrolled. As affiliate marketing matured, many affiliate merchants have refined their terms and conditions to prohibit affiliates from spamming.
Google Adwords can be used to drive targeted traffic to a sales page. You simply make an ad in your adwords account then use your affiliate link in the target page URL of the ad. Obviously, you will have to continuously measure the conversions and see if the campaign cost is less than the campaign profit in order to keep the campaign running but I am sure you get the idea.
I started blogging since 2016, and still struggling to get huge amount of traffic. I usually monetize my content with affiliate links as well as with AdSense. But no income still ! I don’t know where I am lacking, can you please check out my site, n suggest me what to do next?
How long does it take before you start getting sales from a new site? I put a new site up and had 13 sales within 30 days and then nothing. Did I just get lucky or do you think it will “kick in”? I have just started doing some bookmarking every day and hope this will help. Comments?
I don’t know how you will take this but I have seen you frequently making mistakes with the ‘s’. Here for example : “an example of how this work( it should be works) a video with sally chow….” you made that mistake again. You are such a bigshot and you may not like it but I wanted to say so I said.
I like the Playdoit affiliate’s program stuff. Its an online betting (for the ones who don’t know about it), btw.. You just need to invite players, and the 30% of their losses from now on goes to you. (Once you get a player, the money comes by itself, it’s like Cost-Per-Action, but you won by the actions of who you invited. Thanks for your post!
Understanding and mastering how to make money affiliate marketing will be very lucrative to you with the right training. Build your site right, and you can be on top of a huge pile of commissions relatively quickly.
