What is Affiliate Marketing?
You make money by promoting others’ products.
Why Do Affiliate Marketing?
It’s a great passive income source, you sleep while generating income. You can do it full-time or you can do it as a side job. Awesome way to start for beginners who didn’t have much online business experiences.
It’s simple to start, low cost to begin. And the thing I love the most is you don’t have to create your own products. You don’t need to take risks investing a lot of overhead and not guaranteed to get results.
What options do I have?
Ok so if I want to start, what exactly can I do first?
Create an account for whatever social media platform you love, Facebook, Instagram, Youtube, Twitter, etc. Or build a website if you like. Find the product you want to promote, join the affiliate program. And then start to promote.
How do you promote? By sharing your thoughts. You could write a post, shoot a video, record an audio, etc. and talk like the time when you’re recommending your favorite Italian restaurant to your friends.
What do I need to write or say so as to get more attention?
There are TONS of products that you can promote e.g.the camera you love to use, the blender you always use to make juice, you name it. So you don’t have to be a great salesperson. You can be the true you. No need to say certain opinion because of the boss or the company you work for. People like to go to your reviews because of your genuineness.
What if I don’t have enough time ?
By doing affiliate you’re leveraging you time and efforts. Yes it takes you to do the work first. But after you created your content, your post your video or your audio will remain posted and generate the passive income for you afterwards.
The only thing you need to do after creating the contents is to update after a period time when the products you promoted are changed, could be monthly could be yearly, depends on the products or the company that sells the products.
