Media companies and publishers are affected, too, since they’ve been given inaccurate data about the consumption of their video content across the social network. Many use that information to help determine the types of content they post.
Cost per action/sale methods require that referred visitors do more than visit the advertiser’s website before the affiliate receives a commission. The advertiser must convert that visitor first. It is in the best interest of the affiliate to send the most closely targeted traffic to the advertiser as possible to increase the chance of a conversion. The risk and loss are shared between the affiliate and the advertiser.
More stability: Thousands of marketers spent millions building up Facebook pages only to see their organic reach go down the drain as Facebook changed its algorithm. This is unlikely to happen to YouTube because of the subscriber system and the more stable search algorithm.
Did you plan on reaching 10,000 people with your video/budget, but only reached 7,000 people because your Relevance Score was too low? You might want to think about how good your video is and how well it is aligned with your audience’s wants. A good idea is to keep track of your videos’ performance in a spreadsheet — Social Media Examiner has a great template you can use. That way, you can compare and evaluate your different campaigns, and figure out what kind of videos actually resonates with your audience.
For example, the content on Super Weddings is useful whether you’re organizing a wedding today or next year. All the content on the site is created accordingly. To make things easier for the audience, it is separated into categories to make it very convenient for the reader to find what they’re looking for. This, of course, is also very good for SEO.
Affiliate marketing is probably one of the quickest and cheapest (not the easiest) ways to start making money online as you don’t have to create any products yourself. You simply link up a buyer and a seller, and you take a commission on the sale that has been referred by you.
If you have specific questions regarding your channel and the Amazon links you include in it, you should reach out to Amazon Associates customer service. They are normally very responsive, and will likely tell you if it is ok to use Amazon Associate links in your content. They just have to do this privately.
As we alluded to earlier, the average consumer spends five hours per day on their mobile device. But what’s even more interesting is how that time spent breaks down. As you can see in the chart below, Facebook is the clear leader with 19%.

Getting Started Doing Affiliate Marketing is very simple as you not have to own a website or blog to start. You need to sign up with an affiliate program such as commission junction, (www.cj.com) which has wide range of affiliate products, or do a Google search for “Affiliate Marketing” Do your research on what or who your target market is going to be. Do not try and promote a wide range of products that are not connected with each other.
File-Sharing: Web sites that host directories of music, movies, games and other software. Users upload content to file-hosting sites and then post descriptions of the material and their download links on directory sites. Uploaders are paid by the file-hosting sites based on the number of times their files are downloaded. The file-hosting sites sell premium download access to the files to the general public. The websites that host the directory services sell advertising and do not host the files themselves.
A key part of this is tracking your sales and their origin. Remember that you won’t be able to monitor every single sale that comes in by hand — there will be too many, hopefully. You must have automatic tracking that shows you which particular products and which specific marketing efforts resulted in the most sales. That’s key for dialing in which products you should promote in the future and which marketing approach you should run with.
Facebook’s own research found that everyone is no more than 3.5 degrees separated. This is far less than the proposed six degrees of separation originally set out by Frigyes Karinthy. As many people use Facebook to keep in touch with friends and family, it’s interesting to see how this use scenario has literally brought the world closer together.
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.
