When I post videos and status updates about making money online, most of the time I am talking about affiliate marketing. It is the cornerstone of my business. Affiliate Marketing is the easiest way to earn income and leveraging the internet, is the smartest and cost efficient way of getting it done. In this post, I will discuss what Affiliate Marketing is and how to get started.
This morning, I received a text asking how I got started in Online Marketing. This is a question I get all the time. The reason I got started was corporate America had screwed me and the job that I came to love was being outsourced to India. At that time, when I was searching for jobs/careers that made similar money to what I was making, the only jobs that paid good money were in other industries or sales. I liked sales but I didn’t like the constant hustle and bustle and grind each month. I had never heard of the term residual income. During one of my google searches, I connected with a lady named Nicole and she opened my eyes to so much wealth. Not only materialistically, but with knowledge about marketing online from the comfort of your own home! I was instantly intrigued. I leathered that Affiliate marketing is the fastest way to earn an income on something you don’t own or didn’t produce. You skip the entire process of developing your own product or service and can fly off the wings of someone else’s hard work. All you have to do is refer them paying customers.
Affiliate marketing is the process of earning a commission by promoting other people’s (or company’s) products. You find a product you like, promote it to others and earn a piece of the profit for each sale that you make.
Best of all, it is simple to get started. Some people you know are already affiliates and you probably didn’t realize it. As a matter of fact YOU are an affiliate of many things but ever get paid for it. The goal of this post is to open your eyes to what you do daily and hopefully interest you in getting paid for your “work”. Think of it like this… do you know
A party promoter? A real estate agent? A car salesman? Each of these professionals is affiliates of a brand and does work promoting the items for sale.
Here is a more relatable example: Let’s say you go see a movie this evening and post about it on Facebook. ” I just saw Hidden Figures and it was amazing”. Other people who may have wanted to see that movie will now decide to go see it based off of your post. If you were an affiliate of “Fandango”, they would give you a link to a post and if tickets were sold from their site, you would get a piece of the profit from the sale. That’s how affiliate marketing works. Now imagine that same concept with higher ticket items. Better yet, imagine that same thought process without having to purchase a product. There are many ways to get started with Affiliate marketing. There are companies like Commission Junction and Rakuten Marketing that find and list affiliate marketing programs on their site and all you need to do is register and pick programs to get started with. These type of sites include forums and discussion boards for you to compare different products and chat with other affiliates about what works and what doesn’t. You also can partner with business owners and local companies that sale items. I purchased a car last year and the saleslady gave me her car. When I got back to work, one of my coworkers who was also in the market for a car; asked me where I got the car from. I gave him the information and two weeks later, the saleswoman called me to thank me for the referral. I was able to pick up a check for $200 the following Friday. Just for referring her the sale. In the video below, I go over what Affiliate marketing is and how easy it is to get started.
If you want to get started with a company that I am working with, check out the overview here. This company pays you $20 for participating and $60 per referral.That’s right, they pay you to participate in their program. Doesn’t get any better than that!
