If you’re following me than you know I make most of the money through affiliate marketing. Affiliate Marketing is something that can make you hundreds of thousands of dollars by applying right principles.
I am making thousands of dollars every month just with very few sites. What I am doing is creating blogs that would make passive income instead of creating 3-4 pages niche sites.
In this post I am going to share 5 tips to make money with affiliate marketing.
Building trust with your audience is very crucial step in making money with affiliate products. People are more likely to buy from bloggers/marketers – they know and trust. To build trust with your blog readers, you’d need to provide them real value.
“Whether you like to hear this or not, there is no secret to gaining people’s trust. It doesn’t matter how many things you know or how good you are at manipulating, you can never manipulate people to trust you, you can only earn it, and the best way to earn it is by giving true value.” – Onibalusi Bamidele
If want to build trust than promote the products that would be useful to them, not the ones that will make good YOU commission.
2. Planting Seeds
I learned this tip from the awesome affiliate marketer & blogger, Pat Flynn. In his latest income report he wrote about planting seeds and how he was able to make $17000 (in a month) from BlueHost Affiliates.
3. Create a Resource Page
It was very recently I put the resource page on my blog and it is converting very well. It is the page where you can put the affiliate recommendations to products that will be helpful to your blog readers. The page should be a mix of Free & paid products. Only include the products that you have used and working well for you.
It can be linked from the numerous blog posts, newsletter, pages and social networks. You can also put a banner – & link to resource page in sidebar, to promote it.
4. Only Promote Good Products
I’ve seen many Internet marketers & bloggers promoting all type of products just to make good commissions. One of the keys to become successful in affiliate marketing – is to only promote the good products and the ones that you have used.
What if hesham start promoting products about music or how to learn guitar, it would make no sense because FamousBloggers is all about Blogging & making money online!
Never promote just any product just to make quick cash; it will quickly destroy your credibility as a blogger or marketer.
5. Quality Traffic
All it takes to have few quality visitors to make your first sale. Making money with affiliate marketing requires quality visitors. One of the best strategy to get quality traffic is by doing guest posting like I’m doing here. Here are few more strategies that can drive quality traffic to your blog:
- Collaborating with other bloggers in your niche – A sure fire way to skyrocket your blog traffic. Learn how you can collaborate with other bloggers.
- Submit your blog posts to Blokube – It is a social blogging community for bloggers & online marketers. Submitting to Blokube takes less than a minute (or may be half).
- Join the Forums – There still hundreds of bloggers/marketer that have not started using Forum Boards. You can generate hundreds of visitors with Forums like DigitalPoint, Warrior Forums, etc.
- Creating Infographics – This is something that very less bloggers are utilizing. Infographics are very powerful and you can end up getting featured on big blogs.
