You will see that I created a simple image with some selling features, noting the SALE, warranty, RETURNS and a big SWIPE UP which was pointing to my http://bit.ly/amazonferrariwatch URL I created from the Amazon Associates Affiliate Offering code (yea it’s a mouthful) but it’s the big long messy URL in the image below (which is from Bit.ly dashboard). This is an amazing officially licensed Ferrari watch backed with a 2 year warranty and FREE returns. It doesn’t get any nicer of a “sell” than offering all these things to an automotive enthusiast following like I have!
I obviously think that a good price point and lifelong cookies are ideal, but I also think that the product has to be really valuable – really offer the person I’m sending something that they can use and will be happy with. I personally remember the people who point me to valuable products, and I trust them more for future products. It’s not just a matter of ethics (although that’s a big part of it) but it’s also a matter of future sales!
Well, in my personal experience, affiliate marketing makes up the largest chunk of my blog income. Since getting started back in October, I’ve made a few thousand dollars from affiliate marketing (including $1500 in the first 30 days!). The road to get there wasn’t easy though… affiliate marketing isn’t just about dropping links and hoping people will buy things. There is, in fact, a lot more strategic thinking involved, which brings us to the next major question:
Great post and perfect timing as i’ve been googling free affiliate marketing courses. michelle’s course always comes up but i didnt want to spend any more money on my blog until i made some of it back, which i finally broke even. might be time to take the plunge. my traffic is up but my conversions are still low with amazon. congrats on your success! i’ve enjoyed seeing your blog grow.
As an affiliate marketer, one of the most important things to work on is your credibility as a product reviewer. That is why we recommend first to try using the product or service before writing a review and recommending it to other people. Until you work up your skills, you may want to try promoting recognizable brand products. And work your way to reviewing and recommending products of less popular brands.
Before we can get into affiliate links, first we need to talk about the affiliate program. An affiliate program is hosted by a company that wants to use marketers who are not employed by the company to promote their product or service. These marketers, and their social media accounts, are often related to the product or niche in some way. For example, a health blogger might sign up for an affiliate program promoting vitamins.
Wonderful course. Completely takes the guess work and mystery out of setting up a Shopify Affiliate Store. Tim Sharp is knowledgeable, engaging and enthusiastic. He is truly a natural teacher. And the fact he shares SO much detailed information, without subliminally selling alternate personal products, means he really wants us - his virtual students - to succeed. Not only do I recommend, I would pay for any future courses he offers...
Tip#2 is to go sign up for elink,io right now. It’s a free tool that lets you post multiple links on your instagram bio which is super helpful to increase profits for us affiliate marketers. You can share links to multiple different landing pages and offers which is great for split testing, while you simultaneously share links to your other social media, and even your website. So now you don’t have to choose between a link to your landing or a link to your youtube channel, you can have both…. And no i’m not sponsored by them. 

Hi, I really love how detailed your article was, great job. I was reading over a few of your comments, and I noticed someone mentioned the6figurementors. I just wanted to drop a comment and let you know that, even though they make it sound like a huge opportunity, in reality after I researched there website for a few hours. I noticed that their whole logic is to get people to buy a membership, and then upgrade a membership to there best possible one which is very costly for most people. It pretty much seemed like it was all a sham just to earn the right to promote there 6 figure mentors program. The membership site was created and if you upgrade to there best membership they offer. You just gain the promoting right to earn commission by promoting the 6 figure mentors program. Which to me is way to costly to invest into. I might just be starting out with affiliate marketing with my blog. But I feel as if the 6 figure mentors website is really a big money gimmick to make the owners rich. Yeah you can promote high ticket products they offer. But at what cost? Really by the time you get to the point where you can promote their products. You are out thousands, maybe even more. I wouldn’t not recommend that program to anyone myself. I’m not saying there a scam. But they do sell it just like all the other big companies do. They make it sound like you will be rich over night. To me that’s exactly why I have chosen to avoid them. I can find plenty of high ticket affiliate products online for free. Why would I want to spend thousands just to promote there products. When I can search google and find helpful blogs just like this one. I just wanted to put that out there for you, and your readers. I hope that was ok. If not i apologize in advance. I know I am probably going at this affiliate thing wrong right now. But I was raised that you learn from your mistakes. I am trying my best to learn it. But I would truly like to say thank you. Because I am able to learn affiliate marketing more, because of blogs like this one. Awesome job and keep up the good work. If you don’t mind swinging by my website and letting me know If I am doing anything wrong thus far, with how I am promoting things please let me know. I would really like to fix my wrong doing early. Before I get to deep into it. I have like 6 or 7 posts so far on my blog. But would love to hear your expertise on if I am doing anything wrong. I have been training courses step-by-step and I have learned a lot I have got ranked in google and all that. But I haven’t had any luck so far with viewers commenting but maybe a few. So I just feel like I am doing something wrong here. If you get a chance please leave a comment and give me your opinion. Thank you and god bless 🙂

Ok, as an Affiliate Marketing Dummy, you might feel a bit confused now. This post about SEO from LiveChat’s blog will make the concept pretty obvious while this article from Yoast will help you avoid all the mistakes, rookie affiliate marketers tend to make. What you have to remember is to search for RIGHT keywords related to your niche, instead of for the best ones. How to search for them? You’ll find Adwords Console Keyword Planner extremely useful here. Try to optimize your website for phrases with min. 500 and max. 15,000 monthly organic searches. Those are usually relatively easy to get your content rank high in Google. That strategy won’t bring you millions of visitors overnight, but can attract attention of few potential customers everyday.


Affiliate Marketing is a great way for the regular guy to make extra income. Amazon, Petco, and Ebay are examples of companies that will gladly pay you to send buyers their way. Maybe after doing further research you might consider finding a way to supplement your income with a relationship with a great affiliate marketing company. No, website, no products no problem.
I’ve put together a free 7 day fast-start guide to earning your first dollar online. Go access this free affiliate marketing training. You’ll discover why internet marketing is by far the funnest and easiest way to earn passive income each and every month. Please note that I did not use the word ‘job’. There’s plenty of work involved but it will never feel like a job to you.

Some techniques are focused on bringing more traffic to your website. Search engine optimization is a way to make your website show up in the search engines when people are searching for certain terms. It’s hard to rank for broad terms like “diet,” but you can often get your site to show up in local results or by using longer keyword phrases. To compete in competitive niches, some marketers turn to pay-per-click ads (PPC), which involves paying for your site to show up in the search engines.

Frank, thanks for this primer one of my favorite business topics. I like your style. You wrote this “take Me By The Hand” kinda post and it works for me. I know that we all recommend products and services to friends and family members and never even think about getting paid. “Hey guy you ought see this movie, or eat that food, or buy those jeans.” When was the last time a company paid you consistently for your referrals? Some do I’m sure but most do not give you a dime to drive people to their store. Yet we make buying referral willing all the time.


In short, both the affiliate marketer and the merchant will benefit in this program as the merchant will sell more goods and the affiliate marketer will get a commission for every product bought through his/her website.  Many affiliate marketers earn a nice monthly income from selling other peoples’ products!  Later, YOU TOO could be producing your very own products and collaborating with one of the top 10 affiliate programs below to enlist an army of bloggers and website owners to help you become financially free.
We have “Carefully” scoured through ALOT of the “Affiliate Networks” in hopes of adding the right content for our visitors. The trueth is; whether it be the least popular networks OR the top notch programs, they each have various conditions which will screw you from generating revenue. Adding their links and promoting their advertisers is nothing more than a waste of YOUR time and YOUR webspace if you don’t get paid to have them there sooo, don’t get in a hurry to join any affiliate programs until you read through their “Terms & Conditions” thoroughly and completely!
A relative newcomer to the affiliate space, MaxBounty was founded in 2004 in Ottawa, Canada. MaxBounty claims to be the only affiliate network built specifically for affiliates. MaxBounty is exclusively a CPA (Cost Per Action/Acquisition) company that doesn’t deal with ad banners or the like, just customer links that the publisher (blogger) chooses where to place on their website.
Your life situation might dictate that $200/day is the pinnacle of financial motivation. You can drive yourself to attain this goal, but any further and the motivation begins to slip. That’s a point of diminishing returns. Call it your comfort zone. Any work to advance beyond this point comes with the additional burden of pushing you out of that comfort zone. And so procrastination sets in, along with the dual crippling fears of failure and success.

Affiliate marketing is a great way to start building your potential offering on your Shopify store. There are thousands of affiliate products that you can test on several avenues and be able to profit while testing out the waters on which products there's demand for. You can also identify which demographic you'd want to focus your store towards based on the profitability of your affiliate efforts.


I do find the rejections strange sometimes, and you are SO right that often there doesn’t appear to be a good reason. Just yesterday I got a rejection from a program I applied to months and months ago citing that “my site wasn’t a good fit”, but I had actually been accepted to them through CJ Affiliate when I first applied and have been generating pretty consistent sales haha. Oh well! Guess we’ll never know the “inner workings” of it all, but thanks for reading Robert 😀
As opposed to referral marketing, any affiliate marketing should be incentivized by an attractive commission rate and transparent rules. It is especially relevant to eCommerce newcomers: a solid monetary base can act as a means of building trust among prospective affiliates. If you want to prove the credibility of your new business, be generous when considering the reward.
Because 2Checkout exclusively sells software and digital products, it is best suited for established influencers whose target audience is interested in buying products in this niche. But while you won’t find any physical products for sale, 2Checkout is probably the market leader in selling software of every type, including very specific use case items (like software that can convert Microsoft Word documents to PDF, for instance).
However, more recently, people have been using affiliate links in social media, particularly on Facebook and Instagram. Affiliate marketing is ideal for Instagrammers who have a large audience to promote and sell products to, but have no actual products to sell. Instead of creating their own product, Instagrammers can simply promote someone else’s, taking a percentage of the profit once someone from their Insta-audience makes a purchase. Sounds appealing right?

Shopify is a leading cloud-based, multi-channel commerce platform designed for small and medium-sized businesses. Merchants/sellers use Shopify to create, set up, and operate their stores across multiple sales channels including web, mobile, social media, brick-and-mortar, and pop-up shops. The platform also provides merchants with a powerful back-office and a single view of their businesses. Shopify POS (point-of-sale) is an in-store application for iOS and Android devices. Shopify is engineered for reliability and scale, making enterprise-level technology available to businesses of all sizes.
There are two characteristics that describe the variety of affiliate marketing programs, that are interconnected into a network, the best – types of offers and commissions. In today’s affiliate marketing the most popular types are game offers, casino offers, app offers, dating offers and nutra offers. The most in-demand commission types are CPA and CPI.
Awesome list! and great tips. Except one thing… There are a few products that Amazon won’t pay you commissions on, mostly electronics. there’s a list they have somewhere outlining them. They aren’t very many on the list but they are some of the hottest products in the market now. I think Amazon’s affiliate program gets worse every year. But luckily there are other options out there.

As you can see, Instagram offers some genuine opportunities to make money online. Whether you want to become an Instagram influencer, sell physical products, photographs, or affiliate products, or become an Instagram expert in the freelancing field, there are possibilities for everyone. Whatever route you choose to go down, make sure you persevere, as the financial rewards can be more than worth it.

Unfortunately, the 2Checkout dashboard is a bit limited in scope, making it difficult to get any metrics on conversion rates or even sorting by commission payouts. The workaround is to go to the Avangate store, which does list their best-selling products, and then search for these on the affiliate dashboard. That being said, 2Checkout does offer products from more than 4,000 different vendors, making it the leading affiliate network for software and digital products.

We’re not going to tell you which eCommerce solution is the best for you. Each person has their own preferences. You may already have a solution in mind. Heck, you may be too lazy to try a different one. That’s fine! We support a number of integrations for eCommerce, including for PayPal, Stripe, Shopify, and more, and each of them can do the trick. But typically affiliate managers who enjoy Shopify enjoy it for one of the following reasons:

To make a decent amount of affiliate money, you need to go beyond affiliate dummy guides. You’ll need a lot of visitors to your site, and you’ll need a good way to interact with those visitors. That’s when the process starts to get a lot harder. So, on this post I will give some tips and tricks that you can start implementing and make all this process a lot easier.​


Advertising Disclosures - Let your audience know that your links are affiliate links, either with a page on your website with full disclosure or by including a disclaimer in your content. If you're honest and transparent with your audience, then they will be more likely to trust you and check out your recommendations. Make sure that you review our Partner Terms of Service, which outlines the rules, regulations, and FTC requirements that you need to adhere to as a Shopify Affiliate.

While ZipRecruiter is seeing annual salaries as high as $113,500 and as low as $20,000, the majority of Affiliate Marketing salaries currently range between $40,000 (25th percentile) to $71,500 (75th percentile) across the United States. The average pay range for an Affiliate Marketing varies modestly (up to $31,500), which suggests there may be fewer opportunities for advancement based on skill level, but increased pay based on location and years of experience is still possible.

Dr. Rose wrote that she was about to give on in frustration, then, fortuitously, she ran across a pin that blared, “How To Make Your First Affiliate Sale in 24 Hours Using Pinterest.” She clicked it out o fcuriousity, then found out what the “catch” was. The link was to a purchase page for a book by that name. Not wanting to make the purchase — after all ,she’s been blogging for a couple of months, but still ahdn’t made any money, she thought to herself “How’s this possible?”
I am promoting Project Breakthrough which is a program that can be advertised on Instagram and almost any platform. Project Breakthrough is a comprehensive 100% FREE Video training course that will teach you how to earn money from home in 14 days and how to earn your first commissions promoting an affiliate offer, selling other peoples product, which is the easiest thing to do. They teach you successfully advertise and how to do it repeatedly over and over again
One thing that I look for in an affiliate program is a good transparent analytics system. I want to be able to see the clicks and transactions, so that I can track my stats. Otherwise, I get a little nervous about the legitimacy of the program. Other things to look for is to see how transparent they are when answering questions and how the responsiveness of the affiliate manager.

Alright, I know that was a lot to digest, but if making passive income was easy, don’t you think we’d all be walking around, draped in velvet like the fancy people we truly are? Making money off blogging, passive income no less, is super difficult… and it takes hard work and dedication. With these basics out of the way, it is my genuine hope that you now feel (somewhat) less confused and more motivated than ever to tackle this beast. If you haven’t run away to the woods yet, you might be wondering, “ugh crap what do I do now?”
Alex, a Honda Civic enthusiast, is looking for the best exhaust for the money. He stumbles on John’s carmufflers.com after doing some research on Google. After much debate Alex decides to go with a Borla catback exhaust system for his Honda Civic. After spending enough time on John’s website, Alex clicks John’s affiliate link to the Borla Exhaust Honda Civic page. Right there is when the cookie is stored on Alex’s computer. John (the affiliate) will ONLY get commission if Alex decides to make a purchase within the 7 days. Luckily for John, Alex decides to buy a $239 exhaust system. This means that John would have just made $21.51 for this one sale.
Doing affiliate marketing on Instagram has its peculiarities, but the key idea remains the same – you don’t need to sell your own products, being able to promote someone else’s goods and get a commission for each transaction. It takes a few simple steps. Sign up to an advertiser that has an affiliate program and enroll with it. Look at your Instagram profile analytically and decide if you’d like to use a personal account or launch a separate one to earn money through Instagram. Bear in mind that personal accounts seem more trustworthy and credible. Polish your account, come up with a catchy caption and attach a link to a profile. Ready? Now it’s time to make some money.
When promoting affiliate offers, just make sure you are fully aware of all the terms and conditions attached to your affiliate program. Some programs can be strict about how they allow you to promote their products. For example, some may limit you to banner ads and links only, while others will allow you to use paid advertising, but won't allow email marketing. 
Many affiliate marketers use paid advertising to generate additional traffic to their site and drive more sales. Paid advertising on social media is often a good place to start, as these networks tend to be more affordable.You may also want to consider taking out inexpensive banner ads on small niche sites. Depending on your niche, Google AdWords could also be a good option to drive some paid traffic to your site.

First, you must recognize that there are much better social media networks than Instagram for affiliate marketing, for example, Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter. Therefore, you might abandon IG altogether. Secondly, if you want to play on IG, you must accept its limitations and focus on what is available (the bio section). Four strategies accompany the all-important bio link.


Thanks to Shopify’s partners and app developers, figuring out how to create an affiliate program for your Shopify store is easy, as you can start by simply installing an affiliate app of your choosing. From there, each app will take you through an onboarding process that will get you up and running with an affiliate program catered to your business.

You will see that I created a simple image with some selling features, noting the SALE, warranty, RETURNS and a big SWIPE UP which was pointing to my http://bit.ly/amazonferrariwatch URL I created from the Amazon Associates Affiliate Offering code (yea it’s a mouthful) but it’s the big long messy URL in the image below (which is from Bit.ly dashboard). This is an amazing officially licensed Ferrari watch backed with a 2 year warranty and FREE returns. It doesn’t get any nicer of a “sell” than offering all these things to an automotive enthusiast following like I have!
We will NOT be held responsible for any search engine penalties your website may receive if you don’t follow search engine’s guidelines, including (but not limited) to spammy comments, heavy and spammy linking from guest posts, spammy guest blogging, publishing poor quality content with a sole intent to gain backlinks, buying or exchanging backlinks, etc.
Given that I am still in reading and preparation phase, I am mainly interested to overlap my niche with real life interests so I could have motivation to produce content on regular basis. Two that I am highly interested are PC parts and Fitness. I am aware they are too general subjects with lot of sites doing the same, but my idea is to produce constant review on PC parts, Laptops, Mobile devices, Accessories all in different categories, create lists like top5 or 10 under XX budget etc. Similar approach I would use if I I decide to go with Fitness path and divide content training advice, review of fat loss methods, supplementation, nutrition etc. I am aware that this will be a long journey and that it can pass few months before sales start to kick in and that’s the risk I am ready to take. My questions are:

You can also make "money marketing" by having ads on your site. Some companies will pay you directly to place their ads on your site, but Google’s AdSense automatically places ads on your site and pays you whenever someone clicks on it. Many affiliate marketers also earn money from writing “sponsored posts,” where a company pays you directly to feature their product on your site.
Some affiliate programs pay just 15 days after the end of the month, but most affiliate programs will take between 30 days and up to three months to pay you. This is normally because they need to verify the sale, and because sometimes they offer a 30-day refund. If someone decides to cancel their purchase, and ask for a refund you will lose your commission.
Affiliate networks offer you access to multiple (and by multiple, we mean hundreds if not thousands) of individual affiliate programs. They basically work by simplifying the signup process - instead of applying to become an affiliate for a each product you want to promote, you simply apply to join the network and instantly have access to hundreds of different affiliate offers.
I recommend that you start with affiliate marketing first in order to identify the vertical/product that you want to pursue. You will want to use native advertising as it is the best and most efficient way to drive traffic to your landing pages. There are many native advertising networks each with their own strengths, though I recommend finding a platform which allows you to aggregate your media buy under one account. These aggregator platforms also offer CPA optimization tools and also offer much better personal support.
I want to do an “inspirational” post to help newbies see that affiliate marketing is a long-range game plan, not a “get rich quick” scheme. Looking for those willing to share how long it took to get the first affiliate sale and a bit of insight into how you did it. Of course, your name and your website/blog link will be included. You can share it here, or email me.

Affiliate marketing has now invaded Hollywood? We know it invaded US politics in Washington as some politicians (current and retired) are silent affiliate marketers or in MLM. Maybe we can look forward to hearing in the next few years about more celebrities going from actors and actresses to home-based affiliate marketers. Wouldn’t that be something?
