Make Money From Home With Affiliate Marketing

Posted in Blogging By alan

Affiliate products are a great way to make money from home. Website owners everywhere are profiting from their sites with affiliate products. The reason affiliate marketing has become so popular is because it makes it very easy for website owners to make money selling products that they don’t own or ever even have to see.

What are affiliate products?

Affiliate products are products that are being sold by another individual or company that you promote through your website or blog. For every sale that you get through your affiliate link, you receive a commission on the sale. Some affiliate product commissions can reach as much as 75% or more.

The key to success with affiliate products is to have target traffic that is genuinely interested in the subject of the product you are promoting. Website visitors should be interested in the subject of your product so that hopefully visitors will convert to sales.

Where do I find Affiliate Products?

There are websites that allow people who sell the products (Vendors) to list their products in a marketplace. The people promoting the products (Affiliates) then create their affiliate link for the product and promote the product on their site or blog.

  • Popular Affiliate Product Marketplaces
  • ClickBank
  • Azoogle
  • Commission Junction
  • Amazon
  • eBay

How to Choose Products

Choosing a successful product is a big part of the process and very important to your success. We’ll go through the best way to choose a good ClickBank product. Go to the ClickBank Marketplace after signing up and choose a category on the left hand side that interests you. Sort the products by “Gravity”. The higher the Gravity of a product, the more money that vendor is making. This usually means the product has good conversions and the affiliates selling it are making good money from it. These products will be the best and easiest to promote for your website.

Once you have chosen a product that has a good gravity and makes a descent amount per sale just click the “Promote” button and you will get your affiliate link to display on your website. This is the link you will use to promote the given product. You can track the amount of clicks it gets and your sales by going to “Reporting” in the main navigation and clicking “Analytics”. This will show you all kinds of statistics to help you see what products are doing good and how well they are converting.

It's definitely a good idea to promote with different platforms and see what works best for you. ClikcBank is just one of the easiest to get started with. You can also run a script on your site that allows affiliates to promote your product for a commission... but that's a whole other post.

ClickBank.com is another big one that people use. If you have a site with good traffic, add some affiliate links and see if you get any sales. Another method is to create an opt-in box to your mailing list then send the people who sign up for your mailing list useful information and then some affiliate product offers also.

Affiliate marketing is the best way to monetize your site if you have a decent traffic, it is definitely better than waiting and hoping that someone clicks on your adsense ads !
