There are two approaches to the problem of affiliate marketing: either you have a lot of traffic, like me or like realitatea.net, or you have a niche. Since we don’t all have 100,000 unique ones a day, to make 10,000 euros a month from affiliate marketing, as a reality, let’s see how we can make an honest and pile of money from the internet, in a civilized way (without spam and other donkeys, that is) .
What does affiliate marketing mean?
Affiliate marketing is the process by which a publisher (blog, site) recommends a product on its site and earns a percentage of sales from its site.
The procedure involves planting a cookie on the computer of the person who clicks on the link and, if he makes a purchase from that merchant in a period of time (usually 30 days), a commission goes to the publisher. You can also join the Evergreen Wealth Formula program and learn the entire process. Now, Read this about fake reviews and how to avoid them as you will have to opt for the program yourself rather than trusting the reviews.
How do I start?
Check if there is a store that sells things you know and start a blog to write about it. Free ideas: crazy gift blogs, men’s and women’s fashion blogs.
If you already have a blog, see what your user profile is. What kind of articles attract him the most? Are there products in that niche? Insert a link, test. For example, on zoso.ro there are many people who buy IT products. Not necessarily what I recommend, but stores have referral algorithms on the page, maybe they like something else and buy, so you have a gain.
Note: The above, and the whole article in general, does not apply to children or the illiterate. None of these categories have purchasing power, so they are not worth the effort. If you are 16 and write as a 16-year-old for 12-year-olds, stay calm.
How do I sell?
A guy was telling me how he sold a few hundred euros a month. He would go to the telecom operator’s store, take a picture or a short video of the coolest and newest phone, and post it on the blog with an affiliate link.
Affiliate marketing is free advertising only if you do not know how to sell or you have not chosen your store well.
Don’t waste your time with obscure shops, because there is a good chance that they will not have stock of products. There is no point in giving an affiliate link to the store that has the lowest price if they do not have the product in stock.
Don’t put dozens of links in an article unless you make comparisons (like here, although formatting leaves something to be desired). People get bored. Don’t crowd your blog with dozens of banners. In this context, banners only help you if you have high traffic.
