Have you ever found yourself wondering What Affiliate Marketing Is About?
There are lots of ways to make money online, but Affiliate Marketing is one of the easiest, has low startup costs, less time-consuming and can have great financial benefits than other methods!
As we outline in Learn To Earn At Wealthy Affiliate, marketing/selling of products can be done in a number of ways.
One way to earn by selling products online is to think about selling someone else’s product. You can work with most name brand manufactures or distributors and earn revenue every time someone purchases a product through your web business connection. You do not have to keep the inventory on hand, do not have to ship the product nor handle the money.
Another great advantage of affiliate marketing is you can keep your startup cost very low. With just the fee of an internet connection, you can start an affiliate marketing campaign and bring in revenue. Granted you will need to devote more time than if you invested some money into your business.
Setting Your Goal
Goal Setting is important for your online business. One of main goals is your choice of the produce to market.
Choose a product you use; a product you would recommend; a product you could get excited about; a product you can make money from! I recommend doing this, even if you invest money into your company, because you are going to be spending a lot of time working on your venture and this product.
It is one of the easiest ways to make money, but this did not mean you will not have to work at this business. Remember “Success Is Not Built In A Day”.
Now we have a goal let’s make plan….
1. Choose your product to market
2. Familiarize yourself with the manufacture’s website. Know their basics. Read posted reviews. Somewhere on their front page, usually at the bottom, there is a link “Affiliate Marketing”. Read their information and pay close attention to their marketing conditions. Each company will have different financial percentage paybacks to you. It is vital to remember to be an enthusiastic endorser about your product and the bottom line payback on that product. Amazon is happy to work with you, because your endorsement helps marketing their product and their sales increase. You are now an Affiliate Marketer.
3. You will receive an AffiliateLink that can be placed in your blog, email, newsletter, website, etc. This Affiliate Link will refer all communications from your site/communications directly to your affiliate company, Amazon, so they can receive the order, process it and send it out. Of course, then you can be paid!
4. Now that you have established a working relationship with Amazon, you can begin to market more or all of their products. You can do multiple reviews on several individual TVs if you want to fine tune your expertise in this area. You’re marketing expansion can take you to multiple companies and products. Knowing your products and this process is vital to for growth as the possibilities are limitless!
5. The end goal is to become versed enough as a product reviewer that companies will request you to host their product. They can track your customer sales and your diligence will make you noteworthy. It is also important to revisit your post to keep it updated and fresh.
Perhaps, the easiest way to get started in Affiliate Marketing is with Amazon. They are pros at marketing their warehouse items. Let them do that work for you. Your creation of a Marketing Affiliate Link with them enables you to capitalize on what they have perfected. They are very willing to accept most motivated Marketing Affiliates and they have a fast turn around on your payment. They also can pay a higher percentage commision on the item, when ordered through a visitor purchase on your site than most Warehouse Marketing Affiliate Companies.
Even better still, when the customer links Amazon through your website, you get a credit for all their purchases for 24 hours. So perhaps they were looking at flat screen TVs and remembered they needed more ink for their printer and a bought an InstaPot Multi Food Center, because they got sidetracked. You will still get credit for these purchases
You will find that once a consumer purchases through your site, they will readily return to your site for knowledge, review and updates. This is where you need to work on creating more review blogs on other products that you are familiar with.
Perhaps, you can pick a product, investigate the top 3 sites and write your own review. We have all written reports in the past, but this is easier as the research material is at our fingertips, the gain is financial, and you even have spell check to work with!
Reputation Means Everything
Amazon has a stellar reputation for quality products and services. Remember, all you do is funnel the purchase of products to Amazon and They take it from there. This is a beginning to a long purchasing/earning relationship.
