In this video, I explain to you what affiliate marketing is, and break it down into plain, easy-to-understand language. Affiliate marketing is the process of earning a commission by promoting someone else’s product or service. Affiliate marketing is great because you don’t have to create or sell a product or a service. The way that it works is there are many different affiliate programs out there, most company, most products, most services, they have what we called an affiliate program. An affiliate program is basically a program they have that give other people the ability to join for free and promote their product and earn their commission.

Affiliate marketing is a great thing, and the reason why it is valuable to get started online because you don’t have to create products, you don’t have to create service, you don’t even really have to sell a product because basically what you are doing is you are simply sharing it with people you know, like family, friends, your followers, subscribers, etc. I have been able to earn millions of dollars, just by promoting other people’s products, and it’s always a win-win for everyone involved.

Why not share a product or service with others, that has helped you in your life, and earn a commission doing so?

How does affiliate marketing work?

To participate in an affiliate marketing program, you’ll need to take these five simple steps:

1.Find and join an affiliate program
2.Choose which offers to promote
3.Obtain a unique affiliate link for each offer
4.Share those links on your blog, social media platforms, or website
5.Collect a commission anytime someone uses your links to make a purchase

Commission rates vary dramatically, depending on the company and the offer. On the low end, you’ll earn about 5% of the sale but, with some arrangements, you can earn as much as 50%, usually when promoting a class or event.  There are also affiliate marketing programs that provide a flat rate per sale instead of a percentage.

Affiliate Marketing Tips to Increase Earnings

Now that we have covered the basics, let’s dive into some more tips on how to actually make money from affiliate marketing.

1. Choose good products and companies to promote

As an affiliate marketer, you don’t have control over the future of the products that you are recommending. That’s why you need to make sure that you are recommending the best products from reputable companies.

The best way to do this is by recommending the products and services that you have actually used. If you want to recommend a product that looks useful, then feel free to contact them to learn more. If you ask nicely, most companies will gladly offer you a free account or copy to review/test their product or service.

2. Offer highly useful and valuable content

Offer highly useful and valuable content

You can add affiliate links and banners anywhere on your WordPress site. However, simply adding links will not result in convincing your users to actually buy those products. You need to convince your users by offering useful and valuable information about the product.

Many affiliate marketers do that by writing in-depth product reviews, video reviews, product comparisons with pros and cons, and more.

3. Keep your audience in mind

Keep your website’s audience and their interests in mind when choosing the product. For example, if you run a fashion blog, then you would want to promote fashion accessories, clothing, and similar products that your audience would want to buy.

You also need to make sure that you are not just recommending products because they are offering higher commissions. If a user buys a product based on your recommendation, and it doesn’t turn out useful, then they will never trust your recommendations again.
