It depends on what your goal is and what type of business you want to build. For any budding blogger or YouTuber, it’s a great way to diversify your income and find out what works for your audience. 00:46 What is Affiliate Marketing? Affiliate marketing is simply the process of promoting a company’s product or service to a relevant audience and receiving a commission based on the sales that you can generate. Emphasis on relevant and targeted. You need to find affiliate offers in your topic and not be a money hunter. You also need to find offers that you know and understand. 03:32 Benefits of Affiliate Marketing The benefits of affiliate marketing are that you don’t have to create the product, you don’t have to provide customer support, you can try many different offers, and it helps you figure out what your audience wants and needs. Also, sometimes there isn’t a product that you can create yourself, so it often makes sense to be a partner. 5:58 AM Disadvantages of Affiliate Marketing The biggest disadvantages are twofold. First, the affiliate program you are a part of can change their terms of service at any time and make you pay less. Next, sometimes an affiliate program just doesn’t pay you what you deserve and, in the worst case, skims affiliates. 9:41 AM How To Find Affiliate Offers Learn how to find affiliate programs as well as the most popular clearinghouses to join like CJ, Impact Radius and so on. 6:00 PM Selling with Amazon Associates Amazon Associates is the world’s most popular affiliate program, and with good reason, they have a wide range of products to fit almost any niche. A brand awareness that people trust and a global appeal. 27:29 How To Get Traffic You have two options, organic and paid. Ideally, you want to use both, but it depends on what you personally want to do. If you are determined to take the organic traffic route, you need to build a brand and a reputation that people can trust. Paid traffic is all about finding offers that convert and a sales process. For both paid and organic products, you should also consider email marketing. 34:01 Build A Website For Affiliate Marketing You need a website to be highly effective in affiliate marketing.
