How to Make Money Online With Affiliate Marketing


What is Affiliate Marketing?

It simply means, selling other people products.

You can sell others stuff by promoting at your blog or website.

You will be paid by the merchant(affiliate program) if your readers/customers make a sale. In other words, you’ll be paid if anyone of your readers buy something which you refer on your blog.

Understood? I hope so. Let’s get into the next step.

How to promote affiliate programs to earn money from your blog?

Though there are many ways to promote affiliate programs, the following are the best ways to make more money without selling your soul!

By writing reviews

If you’re using few products, then write reviews about them.

Ex: If you’re using AWeber, you can write a review about it and use affiliate links to it.

If you’re good enough to convince your readers about the product, the chances of their purchasing rate will be high.

Using banner ads

You can use banner ads to promote products. Placing them in the right places is really important and it totally depends on your skills. The more you are into affiliate marketing, the more skills you can gain!

Promoting through email lists: As I said before, email list should be your weapon to promote your products. If you've built a great list, the chances of getting paid via affiliate programs will be more. You can send affiliate links in your emails using AWeber. You can’t do this through MailChimp.
