Who says that affiliate marketing is an old business model? Thousands of people all around the world are making a very good living as an affiliate marketer. You can too. Here are many smart ways to make money with affiliate marketing.
What is Affiliate Marketing?
Basically, you as a publisher will be rewarded when you help a business by promoting their products or services. So for example, if you sign up for Tips and Ticks HQ’s affiliate program and promote it’s products then you will get a commission when the visitor you send from your site makes a purchase.
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.
Create your blog
In order to generate income from Affiliate Marketing, first and foremost you need a website or blog site to post quality review about product you are promoting and have your website ranked high up in Google search page.
Try To Promote High Quality Products
Lately, a lot of Internet marketers are trying to spam or promote low quality products. This is unethical and there are no excuses for this. I would suggest you to do some researching before promoting a product. You can research on forums or on some review blogs to know if a certain product is worth it. If you promote a product to a huge list of subscribers then you should definitely do some researching before promoting.
Have one or more similar products that you represent? Consider creating a comparison chart to help your prospects weigh the features and compare. And of course be sure to include links to all of the products you represent.
Are you in it for the money or do you have a genuine passion for your topic? Did you know that people will trust you more if they can see your passion? Maybe if you show some personality or the real you they also might trust you more. There are probably 1000 ways to gain trust but it helps if you are genuine in the first place.
