…This is a guest post from Pamela Montgomery.
Have you wondered how to quickly start making money online as you transition from your 9-5 job? You may not have any products or services of your own at this early stage of your business. So, what are you to do? One solution to your problem is to promote the goods and services of other companies and earn a commission. This is called affiliate marketing. Learn how to get started quickly with affiliate marketing by recommending products and services that you use and love.
What is Affiliate Marketing?
First, you will need to understand the concept of affiliate marketing. So, what is affiliate marketing? Affiliate marketing is promoting the products or services of others. Typically, this occurs on your blog where you write useful and informative posts. Within the body of these blog posts you will place links to the products or services that you are discussing. If a reader clicks on a link and makes a purchase, you will earn a commission. As an affiliate marketer, you can also place advertisements for your chosen affiliate companies on their website. Again, if someone clicks on the ad and makes a purchase, you earn a commission.
How to Make Money as an Affiliate?
The best way to succeed as an affiliate marketer is to choose a subject matter that is specific and interesting to you. The topic should also be relevant to your target audience. For example, if you love coffee and know a lot about it, you might choose to create a blog and write on that topic.
Choose affiliate products that you believe in and are related to your niche. You have more credibility in promoting a product if you really believe in it. Show how the product or service has benefited you and your business. Write reviews, how-to posts, comparison charts and offer tips for your topic. For example, how to create a perfect cup of coffee. Where relevant, insert links to your affiliate sites. Remember to promote products and services that you know and love that are relevant to your target audience.
Where to Find Affiliate Products to Promote?
It is important to get to know the people behind the products. After all, they are your business partners. Establish relationships with them. It could lead to other business opportunities.
One of my favorite business partners for affiliate marketing is Connie Ragen Green. I have known Connie for many years. I met her in Toronto, where she spoke to a large group of entrepreneurs about earning money on-line. Her presentation fascinated me and I sought her out to find out more about this fascinating area of entrepreneurship. She knows exactly how to teach you to get started quickly with affiliate marketing.
Since that time, I have taken many of Connie’s courses and promote her courses to my clients. She is known as the “Queen of Affiliate Marketing,” having won many prizes for affiliate marketing. If you want to know more about getting started with affiliate marketing, I highly recommend that you take her course, “Really Simple Affiliate Marketing.”
You can also visit the websites for your favorite products or services and look for information about affiliate programs or “partners.” Sign up and start promoting and earning cash.
You can create a resource guide that lists the various affiliate products and services that you promote. I have a created 2017 Resource Guide, where you can find my recommendations for products that will help you get started on-line as you make the transition from your 9-5 job. You can use this as a guide as you create your own.
