Also, don’t forget to include a link to your desired call to action as high up in the description. If you want people to share the video, use a service called ClicktoTweet.com. If you want people to opt into a mailing list, insert a link to the landing page you want them to go to. It’s as simple as that.
Affiliate websites are often categorized by merchants (advertisers) and affiliate networks. There are currently no industry-wide standards for the categorization. The following types of websites are generic, yet are commonly understood and used by affiliate marketers.

After all that prep work, it’s finally time to start filming your video. Don’t own a fancy camera or have budget to rent one? Don’t worry! Advances in smartphone cameras have made it possible to film great content with just a phone. If you are filming your video with a phone, be sure to turn it sideways and film in landscape mode. This will prevent awkward cropping or framing when you upload the video to YouTube, which natively supports the landscape format. No matter what you’re filming with, these tips can help your video to look professional and stay engaging for your viewers.
With search marketing in a relatively constant state of evolution, refreshing competitive strategies is an exercise that is easily overlooked.

This is obviously a crucial factor to consider. You might come up with an idea for a niche you know a lot about, but are there affiliate programs for the niche? No affiliate program = no sales. Time to look for a different niche.

A. We don’t like putting huge barriers between eager entrepreneurs and their success. The success stories we have created since 2002 give us massive exposure, so we don’t have to charge a lot for our content to run a big operation. We are winning the crowd with an unstoppable strategy. Huge price tags are required when you have affiliate contests and big-hype, big-hitter launches with false excitement. We don’t do big-hype launches. We don’t like selling big ticket items to strangers who may or may not be qualified. Our 14+ years of results, consistency, success stories, and reputation are pretty hard to argue with. The best proof of all of this perhaps is our 40k+ member Facebook community where all of our students hang out and encourage each other.
Along with that, Amazon is a complete SELLING MACHINE! What I mean by that, is they have drilled their conversion rates down to the last detail. Typically I can convert traffic I send to Amazon from my affiliate sites around 12%. The reason why it works so well is that the moment people land on Amazon, they are automatically switched into “buyer mode”. Meaning, they know the only thing left for them to do is BUY. What that means, is all you have to do is get people to Amazon’s site, and they literally do the selling for you.
Mark, WordPress isn’t just for blogging. You can build a static site using WordPress and have your blog integrated so users just need to click on a tab to see your latest posts. That works better than setting up a redirect or sending them to another site or having to cobble something together yourself. There are tons of additional plug-ins for WordPress to enhance its features and capabilities.
Remember: Purchasing generic content is NOT an effective method to build your site. While it may be tempting to populate your site this way, in the long run it won’t help you to position yourself as an expert in your niche (and ultimately means less traffic and fewer sales).
Hi Amy! Question…I am signed up with Google Affiliate Network, and know how to place ads in sidebar. If I write a post referring to the advertiser, can I put link in my post, OR, am I limited to the banner ads in sidebar?
Thank you Amy for this great information. I’ve been doing just the banners on my side bar, but now I think maybe doing the links would work better. I’m going to experiment. I’m only doing products that I’ve tried and can 100% approve of. I think bloggers who don’t stick to their morals are just slimy.
I started my business slowly because there is a wealth of valuable information on every page, in every link, in each video and in every support e-mail. I was so afraid I would do something wrong if I didn’t read everything. Well, I was becoming overwhelmed with good information and my notebook is half full of notes already.
Technically, a guy earning $300,000/month in revenue could be worse off than the guy making a steady $100/day with no outgoings. Admittedly he would have to be blind, dumb, deaf, drunk and stupid to continue swallowing such a skinny margin, but it highlights one of the rare laws of affiliate marketing:

“The Jim Cockrum Team has taken me from “just getting by each month with about $10 extra to spare” and risking $4000 Total in the bank about 7 years ago to paying more in taxes yearly, than I used to make in a year. It was/IS work then and now but, if you are willing to work hard and smart in the first few years starting out, in my opinion, YOU Can do it. Thank you Jim Cockrum team.”
“Hi Jim – I’m KILLING it on Amazon thanks to YOUR provenamazoncourse.com advice (along with – in my earlier years of selling – Jordan, Nathan and a couple others) My ‘Units Sold’ and ‘profit per unit’ have SKYROCKETED. My returns are upwards of 300% net of commission/shipping/fba fees/pro merchant subscriptions etc. My 5 STAR 100% perfect CUSTOMER RATING ALONG WITH A “1.00” PERFECT INTERNAL ACCOUNT SCORE have given me the ability to work from home FULL TIME (I have a part time weekend only job to cover ALL bills+child support). To scale my biz, EVERY SINGLE CENT earned on Amazon using the FBA platform get reinvested into more/more/more inventory. Positioned beautifully for the upcoming holiday season.”
I’ve been shopping around and will probably go with Get Response. Initially I was looking at Mail Chimp since they had the 2000 free subscribers but it appears, in the longer run, it’ll be better with GetResponse.
If anything, the extent of the process might prove that it definitely isn’t a scam, because a scam would disguise itself as a quick fix. Affiliate marketing is a real way of building your own business online, and a little hard work and time can lead to a solid online income.
Given that Google AdWords’ Quality Score comprises half of the ad rank formula, it is one of the most crucial metrics search engine marketers can focus on. High Quality Scores can help you achieve better ad position at lower costs, because Google favors ads that are highly relevant to user queries.

Perhaps it’s obvious, but all of these advertising options work best for sites with high traffic since they are all dependent on lots of eyeballs seeing the ads and either clicking or completing actions.
