Affiliate Marketing in 2018
There are tons of ways to make money online, but by far my favorite is affiliate marketing. The beautiful thing about affiliate marketing is that it doesn’t require much capital to get started and it’s become a lot more user-friendly over the years.
The way affiliate marketing works is simple.
You find a product or service in a specific niche, you find people that are in need of that product or service, and you connect them. In exchange for your match making skills, you earn a commission. It’s the product creator’s way of saying “Thanks”.
In retrospect, affiliate marketing sounds easy… but the complicated part comes in making the connection between the product and the customer.
This is where the “marketing” part comes into play.
We like to call this generating traffic.
If you can master generating traffic, then you’re on the right path to building a passive income online with affiliate marketing. Now let’s get to how we’re gonna drive traffic to our recommended products and services so that your business can take off!
Nothing in life is free… except content.
But that’s because content is king. We live in an era of “Quid Pro, Quo”… or “this for that”. In exchange for providing value to your audience, they become loyal customers.
Loyal customers for life if you’re consistent.
Content can be generated in many forms… YouTube, Facebook, blogs, podcasts, Instagram, or Snapchat. It all depends on your target audience.
Your goal is to find out which one works best for you and your niche. YouTube is great for building your personal brand and creating content; but if you’re not comfortable in front of the camera, you’re wasting your time.
For me, creating videos on YouTube is fun, but I’m way more comfortable expressing myself with my blog.
Building Your Brand
Whenever I’m in the market for sneakers, I go to Adidas.
Because it’s a brand I know and trust. I’ve been wearing Adidas sneakers since I was a kid because my dad would buy them for me; and now I buy them for myself.
This type of brand loyalty was instilled in my brain since I was a kid.
Your responsibility as an affiliate marketer is to do the same. If you really want to know how to make money online in 2018, that’s the secret…
Building your brand.
You want people to come flocking to you when they have questions or need a problem solved in your niche. If your niche is cameras, it is your goal to become the go-to person when someone is looking for a great camera recommendation for their next vacation. Also, someone they recommend to their friends.
And how do you build your brand?
By providing valuable content!
How to Make Money Online in 2018
So I’ve already revealed that my #1 recommendation for making money online in 2018 is affiliate marketing. But what I’m about to share with you is the key to your millionaire quest.
Yes, you can leverage your blog and YouTube channel by monetizing them with affiliate links; but you’re gonna need a lot of traffic in order to get the appropriate amount of clicks that will convert into sales.
So how do you get more traffic?
You can create more SEO targeted content… the more content you create, the more FREE traffic you get to your affiliate offers.
While this method does work… trust me I know, it takes too long to build your brand; let alone see any results at first. In order to achieve the income results you desire, you have to have a certain system set up… as well as invest some money into paid traffic.
Yes it’s expensive… but it provides much quicker results.
But where do you direct your paid traffic?
To a landing page of course!
A landing page is the bridge between your potential customer and the product/service you’re promoting. The power of a landing page is that you can collect a person’s email and connect with them.
When someone watches your videos or reads one of your blog posts, there’s no guarantee that they’ll click on your affiliate links and make a purchase; let alone come back to your YouTube channel or blog.
Collecting their email ensures that even if they didn’t make a purchase now, they might be interested in purchasing the same product later; or purchasing a different product you’re recommending.
Remember that your first priority is providing value.
Do not bombard people that have trusted you with their emails with ridiculously expensive products all in the name of a high commission.
Putting it All Together
Well there you have it my fellow Millionaire seekers… How to make money online in 2018.
It’s very simple yet complicated.
But if you put in the hard work and remain consistent with the valuable content you provide, you can build a passive income with affiliate marketing online.
Remember to keep it simple. Your only duties are to create content and to drive traffic.
