Affiliate marketing is a bloggers best friend, right? Truthfully, not for every blogger but it is a really great way to earn income from your blog.
How it works?
Affiliate marketing provides you, the blogger, an inventive for selling or getting a lead on a merchant’s product. That’s it! So for example, a popular affiliate program is Bluehost. Bluehost is known for their amazing hosting. It helps with your site speed and is very affordable. They also offer domain services and some other cool goodies.
You can get Bluehost hosting for around $3 or $4 a month. Super affordable, right. If you refer their hosting to a customer and they purchase, you might get $90 (just an example) for that single sale. Cool! That’s how affiliate marketing works.
You can also get paid per lead which means you deliver a potential customer to a merchant via email submit form, zip code submit form, Facebook like, etc. and you’ll get paid for that too!
It should easy and awesome but it takes work to become a great affiliate marketer. It takes some skill and you will get better over time. Here are some success tips:
- Be consistent: use links througout ALL your work. This means in your blog posts, in your social media posts, newsletter, in photos, etc. (if permitted).
- Don’t be oversalesy: Your readers will buy from you and take your advice if they trust you. You should never compromise your reputation for a sale. Many of the top affiliate marketers like Pat Flynn from Smart Passive Income, hardly ever mention their affiliate programs and still earn five and six figures monthly! Take a page from their book. It’s all about balance.
- Try the product yourself: This is kind of a no-brainer. You don’t have to try every single product yourself but I definitely try to. What better way to thoroughly explain the product, pros, and cons if you have tested it out yourself. Without going bankrupt, you can definitely try multiple products cheaply or free. All you have to do is ask! Reach out to the creator, author, or merchant and ask for a review copy. You’ll be surprised at how many times they will say yes!
