UPDATE — Facebook’s mobile ad revenue continues to grow steadily, with 89% of ad revenue now attributed to mobile users as of Q4 2017. This is a 5% increase in mobile ad revenue since Facebook’s Q2 2016 Report.
Standard video ads on Facebook can be created for specific people, such as those who have already viewed your content. For example, you can come with a follow up video for already captured leads to help them transition from awareness to consideration and affinity. Most of the targeting options can be found under the ‘behavior heading’ for video ads.
You don’t need to buy an expensive camera or drone. You can produce top notch quality videos using just your smartphone. One thing that you do need to work on though, is the editing. Get very good at editing or pay somebody to do it for you. It would be great if you took the trouble to learn to edit well. it’s a useful skill that will pay off very well in the long term. Psst…it’s not that hard – really!

Note that merchants reaching out to establish direct relationships with affiliates will only focus on the “whales” who generate the most revenue. While it’s possible to run a few affiliate marketing relationships directly, opening up this benefit to everyone quickly becomes overwhelming.

But let’s be totally honest for a minute here. There are millions of blogs out there, and a fraction (I dunno, less than 10%?) of bloggers are earning any money at all. And even fewer are earning full time income. The fact that I was able to join the ranks of “the full time income earning bloggers” just 7 months into blogging is sort of unbelievable. (Only, do believe it, because it happened!)
I’ve [followed your blog/read your book/taken your related course/used your related service] and [say a little about the results you’ve achieved]. It seems that [prospective affiliate product] could also be a good fit for my audience.
So, can you really make money from affiliate programs? Well yes and no; there is money in affiliate marketing but if YOU can make money from it or not depends on a lot of other factors such as your commitment, experience, site traffic etc.
It can be published as a book, and other people have already suggested what to include into ‘part 2’. As someone who has been asked by other people wanting to promote my products/serviced, I’d love to read about the merchant’s side of AM, e.g. various software that can be used, how to choose affiliate partners, what to include in the agreement, etc.
Michelle Schroeder-Gardner makes over $50,000 / month from affiliate marketing. She is her own boss, and lives the dream life (on the road) with her hubby. She’s recently released a course on affiliate marketing, right from the what-it-is to the how-to-do-it (legally) – and the results her students (like me) have seen so far have been incredible.
It makes sense to launch a YouTube channel in conjunction with a website. This gives you more options for monetization rather than simply depending on on-page conversions from links in the description.
Thanks Nathalie! And glad to see you came over from AONC 🙂 When done the right way I think affiliate links in context are much less intrusive and offensive than having ads on your sidebar. The average non-tech reader probably wont even know its an affiliate link anyway. So just by doing everything you’ve already been doing, you can switch out links, and probably make a nice side income!
Hi Dody! I honestly don’t think that’s a question that can be answered with an one size fits all answer. The best site for affiliate marketing will be based on your niche, what you audience wants and what you are comfortable selling. I know lots of people that RAVE about shareasale.com – I personally haven’t had wild success with them because they don’t offer many products that I personally have found useful / easy to promote on my blog. I would strong suggest taking the making sense of affiliate marketing course – it will clear up any questions you have about affiliate marketing 🙂

I would give this a hand of applause on this informative article. My only concern is I think I’d rather take number 4 and 5 next to #2 and #3 next to 5. After building a site you are to post something on it right? So by then you have to start posting valuable post already, if not how will be merchants grants you as an affiliate if they don’t see any post? Then you got that valuable information posted, it will gives you a long term good impression and when the merchant see this, good affiliate and better once would ask you to be their affiliate. It is just my thought though, what can you say about it Justin?

I’ve just got to hear about affiliate marketing and am really a newbie to this matter. The post above was so great and helpful for a person like me. I also took a look at locationrebel which seemed very exciting to me. I wonder if those courses and blueprints are still applicable because as far as I’ve seen, the reviews and testimonials all refer to the year 2013. It was the only reason that hold me back from joining the Locationrebel. I would be very thankful if you help me with this matter.
I am so impressed. You have exceeded my expectations for the Boot Camp Digital Class. It was two days of information that I am excited to implement. Your materials, slides, examples and book gave me a clear guide to move forward and make a big impact in my business and future TEDxCincinnati Events. Thank you – you’re amazing! 10 out of 10!!!
Start by thinking about your audience. What kinds of products or services are they most interested in? Which products or services are you currently using that you would feel comfortable recommending to your readers? You can add links to any affiliate program to your site, but if you want to market them with authenticity, it’s best to stick to companies with which you already have some kind of connection.
With affiliate marketing, I started out just writing on Quora and sharing my experiences with no intentions of making any money. Pretty soon, my e-commerce answers caught some serious traction and there were obvious opportunities to provide more value to my readers.
I totally get where you’re coming from. I’ve had similar experiences and I’ve also learned the hard way. There are a whole lot of people who can do marketing and sales. There are much fewer truly excellent teachers. 😉
A video ad is a video ad is a video ad. Except it’s not, according to Facebook. The social network would argue that video ads — and the values of those ads — vary by context. In fact, it is making that case in a company blog post published on Friday.
thank you – that’s great. I guess I wasn’t clear either because I am BOOSTING the post – so if I continue to boost the video (original content – my business commercial) wouldn’t FB expose the video to new people?
The viewer sees a muted version of the video unless he clicks on it. Thus, you need to focus its visual effect. Find a beautiful actor, design colorful graphics, start with an intriguing quote written over an attractive background, or think of another way to grasp the viewer’s attention.
