When you create a product review video for YouTube marketing, share your personal experience about the product you are selling – which means you must have personally used the product first – and be objective oriented in your video. Be honest and natural in your product review video so that you can win the confidence of the visitors so that they can buy your product.
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.
Affiliate marketing is totally a new concept for me but after reading your article its quite clear that how we can publish ads on other websites on our own blog and earn money with affiliate marketing. Need some more updates on those and will read your future posts too. Once again thanks @Harsh for sharing such blog!!
If you are not sure what products and solutions your audience would benefit from, you should do proper research. Start with forums and websites popular in your specific industry. What are the most common questions and the most popular products?
Wow! This is surely one of the best guides for making money with Amazon Associates I’ve ever seen. Truly useful points and much to learn! I’m also using an Amazon aStore and I agree with you, it’s worthless. Thanks for sharing these tips, I will try these techniques and I hope I can get a bigger check next time 🙂
My first full time personal training job definitely didn’t start with a bang. I had a Kinesiology degree and 3 years experience working in a University gym. Exercise was my passion. The soviets would have been proud by my periodization methods and I could spit the latest research on muscle physiology for hours.
At first I was reluctant to promote Amazon.com due to the poor cookie duration and low commissions. However, since Amazon has a huge inventory, it’s a trusted site, and you also get credit for sales customers make even though you weren’t necessarily promoting that specific product, it tends to make up for the negatives, so I have started Amazon more. Great post btw!

Hello Chris, So do you create a blog and do you personally have to buy each item you review. Or do you just create a review that Amazon gives you or is there video that you can use to create some kinda of video? Do you go on and talk about this or not show your face and just do a show your screen and talk about the product. And if you have to buy each product does amazon give you a discount since you are going to be a seller? This is my first time and I’m a total newbie. What do you recommend for created a blog site and etc to host etc to spend the least amount and get running. I have hardly any capital. Thank you for any help and guidance.
The affiliate-marketing industry is growing steadily. An independent survey commissioned by Rakuten Affiliate Network found that affiliate marketing is set to reach $6.8 billion by 2020. Ninety percent of advertisers included in the survey said that affiliate programs were important or very important to their overall marketing strategy, with the majority of publishers reporting that affiliate partnerships drove more than 20% of annual revenue.
Facebook-centric data: The charts are largely based on Facebook’s own unaudited internal data from August 2017, with the two exceptions being some YouTube data it had pulled from that month and a survey of 100 live TV viewers which it had commissioned in March 2017. So, while some of the charts include logos of other companies selling certain video ad placements, such as Snap and Hulu, the charts should not be considered representative of their corresponding video ads’ performance.
Hi, Thanks for the really good article. I notice in your section about text links to Amazon they open in the same window. I have trying to find out how to open them in a new window with no luck. Any ideas? Thanks.
I’m signed up for the Amazon affiliate program, and when I click on the “link to this page” I get HTML code, which is all fine and dandy, but it doesn’t work well when I want to share an affiliate link on Facebook. If I just copy the URL of the given item, will it magically be an affiliates link? Or what else should I be doing?
When we created a bold TV concept perfect for socialization and participation, Facebook and Instagram provided the ideal platforms to vastly extend the reach of our video and our audience’s excitement.
So make sure to balance out your offers with lots of valuable non-promotional content. Every once in a while (say, every one in four emails) you can include a specific call to action to ask your readers to buy a product.
The true power of video advertising on Facebook is the targeting capabilities. Forget spray and pray — you need a hyper-targeted group of people for your ad’s audience. Narrowing your target group will give you less overall views, but because you’re reaching only the people who are relevant, your CTR is likely to be higher.

@DanielF, This is not a scam. I’m also a small time publisher on youtube and a simple tutorial on how to delete emails have given me few dollars now. I think YouTube revenue sharing works if you have useful stuff like this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zyIgyK7-yNc

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.
Think about the payout. Do you prefer high one-time commission or do you prefer making money on each payment your customers make? When you promote SaaS products, a lifetime recurring commission may seem to be much more attractive in a long term. Do similar brands offer similar percentage? As mentioned before, don’t fall for a very high commission and get–rich–quick promise.
Before I took Making Sense of Affiliate Marketing, I had all the affiliate links up on my blog, but I wasn’t seeing many conversions. There is a right way AND a wrong way to use affiliate links, and Michelle walks you though all of that.
In a nutshell you make money on YouTube by becoming a YouTube partner, which allows you to display ads on your videos, and then you earn a percentage of the revenues generated by clicks on those ads, much like with AdSense. As for how much money you can actually make, I heard numbers anywhere from $3 up to $10 per 1,000 video views.
Do some research and find the campaigns that pay the most. For example, some CPC ads pay $.05 per click while others pay $10 per click. If you capitalize on the bigger ones, you’ll obviously make more.
I recently joined Amazon Affiliates on my site. I joined last week of December (my site has been around since 2011). I was pleasantly surprised to earn $100 my first full month (in Jan), and the last 2 months have been $120-$130. Hoping to get this higher.
Several weeks ago, Facebook disclosed in a post on its “Advertiser Help Center” that its metric for the average time users spent watching videos was artificially inflated because it was only factoring in video views of more than three seconds. The company said it was introducing a new metric to fix the problem.

The resources were excellent. I feel like I have a better understanding of where to start and several valid and worthwhile strategies even for seasoned marketers. Very valuable.
Affiliate marketing is frequently overlooked by advertisers. While search engines, e-mail, and web site syndication capture much of the attention of online retailers, affiliate marketing carries a much lower profile. Still, affiliates continue to play a significant role in e-retailers’ marketing strategies.
The ability to specifically purchase video ads that are more akin to commercial breaks sets up Facebook’s original programming as more of a competitor to YouTube, Hulu and even linear television for brands’ advertising dollars.
