AFFILIATE MARKETING FOR BEGINNERS



Reasons why affiliate marketing is awesome


1. You don't need a ton of page views
Your earning is not based on page views. Sure, you need eyeballs to your affiliate links but with the right strategy, you can make affiliate sales from your small but targeted audience.

Sign up for an affiliate program and have an access to so many products that you can promote. Choose a product that resonates with your audience and can bring value to your readers. 

3. Promotional materials will be provided to you
Banners and codes will be available to use in your blog post, social media, and email. 





4. You don't have to spend to join an affiliate program
You just have to sign up. 

5. Passive income
You can make money while you sleep and this is so true with affiliate marketing. Implement a proven strategy sharing your affiliate links in your blog post, social media, and email.

  20. I started blogging as a hobby, but lately I started thinking about affiliate marketing to make some extra money.. My only concern is time. I have a very demanding job, and I am not always able to spend time to my blog, especially on weekdays. Can affiliate marketing work if you don't spend time consistently on promoting your posts?

  26. You are right!! It is the best way to earn from blog. When you do the math, advertisement for eg, google..100 people visit your blog 5 people click adsense banner, you may get 1$. BUT in affiliate, suppose if 100 people visit your site and you sell 2 product from your affiliate link..;-)

  27. Like you mentioned, affiliate marketing is GREAT for beginner bloggers because you don't need a ton of traffic or an extra long email list. It only takes one click to make a sale! Great advice! :)

  29. Hello Sarah
    The right offer presented to targeted traffic will get you some nice affiliate sales in certain niches. I've done this with some health blogs. It's worth bearing in mind that affiliates usually only get commissions on front-end sales, and perhaps sometimes an upsell or a recurring. But the significant profits are usually made by the product owner on the back-end with higher ticket products (from the customers you find for them) for which you'll get no commissions - one of the advantages of being the product owner with affiliates to sell for you. And also why it's more profitable for the product owner to drive paid traffic to their offers, than it is for their affiliates.
    Best regards
    Matt
