JVZoo’s strength is that it allows experienced marketers to gain access to product launches and a huge range of online courses while setting up sales funnels and customized landing pages. It’s definitely not for someone who wants to monetize a blog or earn money by having users click through and buy physical products. If you’ve carved out a strong presence online in the marketing space, JVZoo might be a perfect fit.
One of the most efficient ways to get more followers or even increase clicks on a certain piece of content, is to run paid search to your Instagram page through Google Adwords. The best way to do this is to continuously analyze your conversion rate and budget, and then execute your keyword research properly. When people enter one of your keywords, your site will pop up in the top results as a sponsored link. This ensures your site gains traction and visibility from people who are actively searching for keywords relating to your business and affiliate strategy. The benefit to this strategy is that it’s a form of native advertising, so this paid search link will appear as an organic search result, thus earning you clicks from searchers.
You can benefit from social media in two ways: by promoting the content which you create or putting links directly in your social media posts. Chances are you already use social media to promote your blog or website (if not — what are you waiting for?) But let’s face it – in this day and age people don’t always want to click a link to go to a website where you have to click more links. Nearly 50% of affiliate-referred traffic originates from a mobile device. And you know better than me, most of the time on your phone you’re checking Twitter or Instagram, not reading lengthy blog posts.
To be successful in affiliate marketing, you need to know your audience – that seems like the most obvious thing to say, but it doesn’t make it less true. The most effective affiliate marketer is aiming to serve people – find products which are actually interesting to them and tell them why they are useful. To do that, you need to know who these people are.
They need a shopify plan (first 2 weeks are free, so if they do their store within one week they could actually get started for under $50, maybe less), They need a faceboob business account, which is free, and a budget of $5 per day for like 7 days (35$) to start promoting their products. As soon as they make sales, the money is directly in their paypal account (if using paypal), or there is a small deley to get their money in their bank account if they use shopify payments for example.
You can make really good commissions from the eBay partner but it depends on the products which you decide to promote. Interestingly the commission levels vary according to where you are in the world not just on the products you decide to promote. One of the great reasons to sign up is that you can earn DOUBLE commissions in your first three months. They offer free to use link generators, ad creatives and widgets for you to promote different eBay items. eBay has over 162 Million active buyers which means there is a great potential to convert your traffic.
Tradedoubler was founded in 1999 by two young Swedish entrepreneurs. They have offices in the UK and multiple countries throughout Europe, including Sweden, Germany, France, Poland and Spain. Their focus has always been to provide smarter results for both clients and affiliates through technology. In 18 years, they’ve amassed an army of 180,000 active publishers, connecting them to over 2,000 merchants in Europe and the UK. Many of these merchants are household names.
Yet, if you are still not sold on the payoffs of offering high commissions, remember that your affiliates are not just bringing you sales, they’re bringing you customers. You’ll have access to people who you can re-market to time and time again. Repeat customers have a 60-70% higher chance of buying from you compared to a first time customer, and they also give your store more word of mouth marketing. Thus, it’s best to do what you can to foster a strong, mutually beneficial business relationship with them.
Any commission that you are going to pay is an investment in your business. Amazon, for example, has an affiliate-marketing guide that grants a 10 percent commission for promoting a set of luxury stores. However, your final decision should stay in tune with the budget of your company. If you offer the highest commission rates to attract the best affiliates, make sure you have done the necessary calculations properly.
Affiliate marketing can be a great way to build stronger relationships with customers and other businesses that you admire within your product niche. From these people, you can gain valuable insights into customer experiences surrounding your products and learn new strategies for growing your business. This is just a basic template for how to start affiliate marketing. Now, it’s time to try it out for yourself. We’re sure that once you get the hang of it, you’ll come to realize that the sky’s the limit when it comes to making the most out of this lucrative marketing channel.
Affiliate networks, often considered among some of the best affiliate programs, are marketplaces where ecommerce entrepreneurs can find affiliates to promote their products. While these networks make it a bit easier to find affiliates, some also charge monthly fees, which might not make them as suitable for early stage entrepreneurs. Others take a cut of your sales, which still gives you guaranteed positive ROI as a store owner. Some affiliate networks include Share-a-Sale, Tapgerine, Commission Junction, AffiliatePrograms.com, and LinkShare.

Everyone likes a compliment. In fact, people like compliments so much they usually share it with their friends and followers! Use this to your advantage. It’s important for you to know who the big players are in your niche. For example, my website is about affiliate marketing. There are literally 10’s of thousands of affiliate marketers that are earning a full-time living. I could create a blog post about “The 10 Most Successful Affiliate Marketers In 2014” or “Affiliate Marketers Who Inspired Me” or any other list I decide to create. Once I’ve written an article and put it on my site, I can share it all over my social media accounts. But here’s the kicker – I would also send a message to all the affiliate marketers on my list with a link to the article. Just about every one of them will share it with their followers. Doing this on a regular basis can literally send thousands (even tens or hundreds of thousands) of visitors to your website every month while simultaneously helping to build your own following.
This ratio applies to all of your social content, including affiliate links. What this means is that you should be sharing 20% of your own content and 80% of curated content. Rather, 2 out of 8 posts should be promotional in nature. Affiliate links are included in that 20%, so make sure you don’t go overboard. Of course you want to increase your passive income with your social affiliate marketing, but you also don’t want to drive followers away with any incessant promotion of your links.

PS.Since I’m a big advocate of Clickbank affiliate marketing but I have include Shareasale marketplace instead of Clickbank here. Just because, I have tried many times to promote some products from both of the networks and each time found success with Shareasale affiliate links. Pinterest did not allow to embed an affiliate link from Clickbank. (It is might be because of the nature of Clickbank Hoplinks)


Are we all okay with affiliate marketing on Twitter now? Twitter is supposed to be about building relationships within whatever industry you are in. Once that is broken than Twitter has no purpose for any of us. It will just become a big spam web site. I think it is ridiculous to even give people ideas on how to become a good affiliate marketer on Twitter. I know these are tips to help people become good affiliate marketers on Twitter without spamming, but you know these people are going to spam anyways. Most people do not even know what spamming is so when they are doing it they don’t realize they are doing anything wrong.

Before I really get into the meat and potatoes of this subject, I want to remind you that my YouTube channel is business-focused and I have a business outside of the YouTube channel and affiliates so I have to tread a fine line between promoting affiliates and promoting my own products and/or services. If you’re reading this and you have a blog or a YouTube channel and you’re considering the possibility of making affiliate income your main source of income, you can absolutely do this on a higher level.

Let’s take a look at a real-life example. I’ll show you how I did keyword research to promote my affiliate pin for the Pin To Profits – Affiliate Marketing Course. The course teaches beginners how to make money on Pinterest using affiliate links. Before I put myself in my audience’s shoes, I make a note of the key information about the course that I need to convey.


Hi, just to let you know that I had a conversation with customer service at Amazon.com and they only allow direct links to Facebook, Twitter and Youtube at the moment and I asked about Pinterest and the answer is no you can’t link directly to an Amazon product, you need to go via your own website or blog. If they catch you doing that, your account will be closed as it is against their TOS.

One of the most efficient ways to get more followers or even increase clicks on a certain piece of content, is to run paid search to your Instagram page through Google Adwords. The best way to do this is to continuously analyze your conversion rate and budget, and then execute your keyword research properly. When people enter one of your keywords, your site will pop up in the top results as a sponsored link.

I would suggest buying a custom domain to integrate with your shopify store. Remember you can easily setup the store and also import products from Aliexpress. Make use of plugins and apps such as Oberlo, and Kit to assist you in your campaigns. The good thing is you can test run and even setup the whole store without spending a dime to see how it goes.
"Social media affiliate marketing often provides a community feel," explains Murphy. "An example of this is mums who publish deals for other mums." Social media has become the new community center, or coffee shop - it's somewhere in which people spend a lot of their spare time, and form friendships sometimes greater than those they have in the offline world.
Based on my research, I chose ‘affiliate marketing on Pinterest without a blog’ as my main target keyword. This what they call a long-tail keyword, a phrase that conveys a specific idea. It’s important to use long-tail keywords because then you’ll be giving users exactly what they’re looking for. If you use just ‘affiliate marketing’ as your keyword, you’ll be competing against everyone on Pinterest who has ever written anything about affiliate marketing. Thanks to proper keyword research, the first and seventh pins in the search results below are my own.

I’m really interested in your advice however I really can’t get my head around how it can ‘fit’ or ‘help’ my Instagram following. I have a small growing steadily following on Instagram. But I need to somehow turn that following into an earning. I have a great business idea that is a ‘new concept’ online homewares store. ‘My_Tiny_Vignette’ (on Instagram)

The affiliate program is fairly simple, you get 30% of the revenue of every customer you bring into Commun.it. You even earn a small bonus for bringing in free customers. All you have to do to join is use the unique easy sharing link provided by Commun.it and place it somewhere on your website where your customers can see it. Then, every time one of your website visitors clicks on the link and signs up for Commun.it, you get the benefit in regularly scheduled payments.
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:
This might sound a bit rude, but it’s true. Through many of my own first hand experiences, it has become obvious to me that people actually like being told what to do. If you post a picture of a cute little puppy, several people will probably like it, comment, or share it with friends. But what if you posted the same picture and said, “Click LIKE if you would snuggle with this puppy!” I can guarantee that you would get more “likes” by adding that phrase.
Follow these steps and you’ll have created yourself a spreadsheet unique to your social media following, and explains exactly how to use affiliate marketing to best benefit them and you. You’ll know what programs to post on which networks, at what times, how often and plenty more. You’ll also know that these programs are easy to use and don’t cause you any trouble.
In any affiliate marketing (and perhaps all types of marketing) those who you are speaking with will begin to ‘switch off’ and become blind to your promotions if you hit them too many times with marketing messages. This will especially be true on Twitter where I see the audience is highly skeptical to marketing messages, are attuned to transparency and where they can very quickly opt out of receiving future communication with you. Not only can they opt out when your messages get too much – they often subscribe or follow you on the basis of what you’ve already written. If all you ever do is promote products (or yourself) you’re unlikely to grow a readership or become anyone with any kind of influence on Twitter.

Writing blog posts (such as reviews, tutorials, and product comparisons) is a great affiliate marketing strategy. But it can be time-consuming. What if I told you there was a quicker way? You can use affiliate links on Pinterest to promote your affiliate products. When I started doing that, my affiliate income climbed faster. Today, I’ll go over how to create affiliate pins and upload them to Pinterest. And the best part? You don’t even need to be a blogger to do this!
Movavi is a company that provides high-quality software to budding videographers and photographers. They run an affiliate program with some very attractive offers for youtubers looking to profit off of their channel. They start their margins of at 40% (meaning you get at least 40% of each commission) and they are known to provide safe, secure transactions. Plus, they're product shouldn't be to hard to sell to any kind of audience. They're software is well-known and since so many people are looking into starting their own youtube channels, it's easy to steer your audience towards their software.
Given the NLP and basic machine learning methodology of the paper, these numbers should be perceived as a lower bound on disclosures. The researchers also didn’t evaluate audio or video to see if an influencer disclosed affiliations in the content itself rather than in the text. Nonetheless, it is clear that much of the influence economy that exists on these platforms remain cloaked from everyday users, despite being in clear violation of FTC guidelines and rules.
On a monthly basis, I’ve had success devoting an hour or two to a couple of activities. First, I send out a monthly newsletter to my affiliates (you can typically do this within your affiliate app). In the email, I let them know about anything new that’s cooking – and encourage everyone to log into their affiliate dashboard so that he or she can share the news.
Unlike Facebook and some other social media platforms, you can tweet very frequently. Most major companies will send out a new tweet ever hour. This includes social media management companies like HootSuite and other well known internet based companies like GoDaddy and HostGator. If they are doing it, chances are it’s pretty safe for you to do it. Since Twitter is such an “in the moment” social platform, you can even tweet out the same thing two days in a row. Hardly anyone (if anyone) will notice.

One last thing to consider: even if your product listings point to reputable retailers, visitors might be confused or freaked out when they’re sent to other sites when trying to purchase your curated products. By being upfront about your affiliate relationship and how the site works, you’ll increase trust and remove any doubts they have about shopping with you.


Hi Tim! I’ve talked to Amazon about this as well, as have many other bloggers I know personally. Each one of us is getting different answers. It’s VERY frustrating. Many have been told as long as their Pinterest account is listed in their profile, it’s fine. For those that haven’t, I’ve pointed out during my calls to Amazon that you can pin Amazon affiliate products directly to Pinterest from the rewardStyle interface, so it’s silly for them to tell anyone that they can’t do it directly from their Amazon Associates account. But of course, with Amazon giving different bloggers different answers, you have to do what you are comfortable with. Or, if in doubt, pin Amazon products via rewardStyle if you are a member 🙂 Hope that helps.


Hi Peter, I personally have never tried promoted pins on Pinterest but it’s on my to-do list. I’ve heard mixed reviews (they made some changes back in June or July on ads that seem to favour bigger companies). I have heard however that if you promote a pin, your whole account gets a bit of a lift. I would definitely recommend giving it a go with a small dollar amount to see if it works, I think I will try too and will report back!

Another thing about affiliate marketing is the payout percentages as well as how these people track your viewers who are clicking on these links. Every time someone clicks on one of your special tracking affiliate links, a little cookie is put onto that person’s computer to track what they purchase. The best part about the cookies is that if you link to a specific product, they don’t have to purchase that product. Anything they purchase on that website, you get commissions for. So they could click over with your affiliate link and that cookie and decide not to purchase that, but purchase a whole bunch of other things, and you get paid commission off it.
