What is affiliate Marketing?
Affiliate Marketing is a referral business. Basically you refer your friends, family or anyone to buy products or services online, and you make some commission.
Why affiliate Marketing is still relevant today?
It is because more and more people nowadays are buying things online. An example of this is that in 2019, people are projected to buy over $342.5 billion on Amazon.
However when buying things online, people want to find a good review. They would love to know a good source of information that they can trust. In another word, they’re hungry for recommendation. That’s when you, as an affiliate marketer should jump in. In my opinion, affiliate marketers act as a bridge to connect brands to their customers.
How to become an affiliate Marketer?
There’re so many ways to do this. But in this article, I’m only going to talk about an easy way to start an affiliate marketing business without investment. You got it right, 0, nada.
Step 1: Finding your Niche
What are your hobbies? What are things that you can talk about all day long? What are things that you have a lot knowledge about? What are things that you believe so strongly that you can recommend to your friends and create value for them consistently?
When you’re hanging out with your friends, what are things that you guys talk about? What kind of advice you give them?
It’s important to find something that you can genuinely provide value to your friends and family. An example for this is fitness. If you go to the gym everyday and you see great results, fitness could be a good niche for you. If you take care of a cat and she is healthy and beautiful, your niche might be cat owners. The point is, there must be something that you’re already passionate or have knowledge about.
Step 2: Finding a product that you believe in
If you’re into fitness, you probably know a certain whey protein or vitamin brand that you like. Same with any other niche, if you love pets, you probably shop at a certain pet brand that you trust.
You then should contact them and ask if they have an affiliate program.
The easiest way to do this is to contact them directly. If you don’t want to do that, most companies that offer affiliate program will have a link in the footer that show “partner program” or “affiliate program”, you can learn more information there.
If for some reason you can’t find their partner program. You should check Amazon. If the product that you like is currently sold on Amazon, you can definitely use it to generate affiliate commission. You have to sign up with Amazon Associates and they will provide you with a link to share to your customers.
Step 3: Share with your viewers
Share the link with your friends. If you are currently active in social media, chances are you have some followers. Start giving content that help people around you. Then you can start recommend services and products to them. If they buy the product you recommend via your link, you will make a commission.
