In this post I’m going to walk you through everything you need to know to start affiliate marketing on your blog, even if you’ve never made a cent online before, don’t know what affiliate marketing is, or haven’t even started to build your blog.
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 promoting that specific product, it tends to make up for the negatives, so I have started promoting Amazon more. Great post btw!
Let’s say you’ve followed your training correctly, and have built a website that gets 1000 unique clicks per month, just a little over 30 per day, which is actually very realistic when you build your site right.

Content creation: The biggest hurdle by far. You can’t just hire a $10 writer and build up a bunch of pages. You actually have to create interesting, compelling videos to get any viewers. Doesn’t help that most people aren’t comfortable before cameras.
You can start by creating a seamless mobile experience across all your web properties whether it’s Facebook, Messenger, your website or anywhere else online. Unless you have data to the contrary, you can anticipate most of your social media traffic will be from a mobile device, so prepare accordingly.
While multivariate tests do exist, they are more complicated and come at a higher price. The value of single factor A/B tests is understanding exactly what variable you can credit for your results prior to moving forward.
When you create a video for your own small business website or for YouTube, you can make it longer and include more in-depth information. That’s because Internet users usually land on those platforms because they were looking for more detailed video content. So keep in mind that your Facebook video ads are interrupting your viewer’s search for updates about their social networks.

Hey Aloys, it’s really too tough to say because the earnings can vary between every single website you look at. If I had to guess it’d be probably 5 – 10 or maybe more (probably more) but even then this is based on a guess because earnings will always vary.
Thirsty Affiliates tracks, cloaks, and categorizes your affiliate links. Once you’ve signed up for your program(s) grab your affiliate links and add them to this plugin. This can take time if you will be linking to multiple pages on your affiliate’s website (which in many cases, you should). The pro version comes with statistics but I don’t even use it and I’m quite the analytical person.
Whenever there’s a network in the middle, the payout to the publisher will be diminished by the “cut” that player takes. So there is an opportunity to make more money in affiliate marketing by cutting out the middleman network and keeping the entire commission intact for the affiliate (publisher).
With mobile video, marketers can make deeper emotional connections than ever. But there’s an art to storytelling on mobile, driven by people choosing what they watch and for how long. The quicker your video ad delivers your message and captures attention, the better your chance of people remembering what they see. How will you use video to tell your story?

Hey Chris, great article. I was wondering if you have noticed anything different with your Amazon niche sites since the Google algo change? Have you lost traffic or do you build the sites up so much that they have good content. I’m new at this and would be curious if you think people need to change anything.
We’ve seen many YouTubers (including very popular ones) who have links to their websites and Facebook pages in the description but don’t include a link to the product(s) they discuss. When an affiliate link adds value, don’t be shy about giving people opportunities to click on it. If you have content on your site, your social channels and your YouTube channel that is complemented by certain affiliate links, include those links in all of those places.
With automatic placements, Facebook will show the ad or ads in places they’re likely to best perform, such as Facebook, Instagram and Audience Network. With editing your own placements, you choose which places to promote your ad or ads. Keep in mind that this may lead to a reduced audience reach.
