Are you wondering how bloggers make money? or how can you make money from blogging?
yeah most people do!
but the question is are they willing to put in the work?
Affiliate marketing is basically selling other people’s products for a small commission, obviously the more sales you get the more money you make.
You can be an Affiliate, which is selling other Companies’ products or you can start an Affiliate Program if you already have an established product or service.
You have complete control of what to sell with affiliate Marketing and why not start now?
Affiliate Marketing is the best business to start as a beginner, All you need to do is know how to use a computer and surround yourself with the right people.
You’re going to learn how to start affiliate marketing the right way and What to do to in order to be successful
I’m going to guide you in the direction I wished someone had guided me before, if you understand this principles you would be ready to be a profitable affiliate from the start.
What do you want to Sell?
Do you like to bake? or if you could do your make up everyday for a living would you do it? Are you a DIY person?
Look for products or services you would use to review and enjoy, either by writing about it or in front of a camera.
I don’t know about you but my husband and I look for reviews on Google and YouTube, before buying anything.
Search engines like YouTube, Google or Pinterest are becoming more and more popular.
Study your affiliate Product closely, Who would be the people that can really benefit from this?
I used to rely on you tube videos that lead me to websites like warrior plus and JVZoo.
I noticed that in these platforms, some people were already making money online and had no problem reviewing products with no quality.
I personally never had a good experience with their affiliate products or services.
Learning Affiliate Marketing by myself was hard until I took the WA Affiliate Boot camp
An affiliate product/service that offers training in how to be a profitable affiliate marketer is the best way to go as a beginner
but no matter what your passion is is always good to start with your own blog so you can eventually sell your own products and have assets.
How Are you going to sell ?
Wanna do it the old fashion way? And gather people around to present your affiliate program or would you like to generate sales online while you sleep?
I find it harder to do it the old fashion way.
My mom is a network marketer and I witnessed the hard work and effort she put in for 3 years to get a full time income and even so, she still has to pass out Avon brochures to be able to sell.
On the other hand you can have a blog and do “written presentation” no facing rejection, no talking to people, no need to feel embarrassed.
If you want to generate leads online you can do it for free, which will take time or you can do it at a much faster pace with paid Ads.
Either way WA Bootcamp teaches you how to generate free online traffic and how to profit to be an affiliate with PPC ads.
On the other hand you can record yourself reviewing products and uploading your videos on YouTube to drive affiliate sales.
Being an affiliate it’s like having your own online business so it’s really up to you on how you want to do things
Who are you going to sell to?
To decide choose what affiliate program(s) you’d liked to join.
Be considerate of who are the people that will buy your affiliate product.
Then ask yourself, where do those people hang out online? Are they on Facebook, Instagram, twitter, etc?
I’ve always been an introvert who hates being on camera, I opted to focus on search engines traffic like Google and Bing Why?
Because everyone is on google seriously, who doesn’t google a question?
I knew that my hard work was going to pay off if Soon creating content for google but in order to do that,
I needed to get on my audience’s shoes, things like the type of questions they might look for on google or how to solve a problem that they might be stuck with.
A good and easy trick that I use is writing down all of the pain points that my affiliate product/service can solve and let that tell me who I can serve based on that.
Don’t Do it Alone
Don’t rely on just on Youtube videos and pray you could figure it out.
Starting an online business, a blog, affiliate marketing, anything new it is hard work.
No matter how many times online gurus tell you that is so easy to sell affiliate products, that you don’t need a website blah blah.
Easy road won’t lead to success, thing that are worth having take time and work to build.
I would much rather build a wealthy online business and have a steady foundation than being spending money on affiliate opportunities for little to no profit at all.
This doesn’t mean that you have to work harder but smarter.
Find other people that are already making an income in affiliate marketing.
As a blogger, I always look for Facebook groups and blogger communities
Wealthy affiliate community it’s great if you have questions and is looking for mentor ship, with no up sells and great web hosting support.
I’m able to network to people and is much easier to generate traffic with SEO because of how SEO is taught in the wealthy affiliate platform..
Rinse & Repeat
Whatever you choose, find your flow, and strategy, Don’t over complicate things.
Don’t start with the most expensive affiliate program or training.
It’s not worth it when you’re starting to minimize your risks, put in the time, don’t invest a whole lot until you profit from your business and are able to jump to the next level.
No matter what you choose to do, keep doing it, rinse and repeat, be consistent. The habit of being consistent is what will give you profits in the long term
Now, do you want to put in the work and make money online for sure?
Or would you rather join an easy affiliate opportunity filled with up sells and being able to make a small commission or sometimes none?
