It is also useful to consider whether your products have varying markups as you come up with your default commission rates. This is because you might want to incentivize your affiliates to generate more sales on products that are already earning you higher profits. If you want to create a set rate instead, you’ll want to find a percentage that takes your varying markup rates into consideration. Instead of creating a single set commission rate, some affiliate marketers opt for a tier system where different commission rates are assigned to different product categories.
Yeah. The concern from an SEO perspective is that YouTube, their goal is to keep people on YouTube for as long as possible, watching as much content as possible, engaging with as many videos as possible, seeing as many ads as possible. And so if your video ends the viewing session for a viewer, like they watch your video, then they click on that link and go to that company’s website and buy the product, that’s great for you, but your video could potentially not perform. If everyone who watches the video took you up on that offer, your video could potentially not perform as well as it otherwise might.
There are many ways to make money with your videos and one popular way is to make money is to combine YouTube videos and affiliate links. If you have an active channel on YouTube are building subscribers, and like to upload regular videos about anything, you can turn your video views into constant income for you. Many people opt to use the YouTube ads program to make money out of their videos. This is the most standard money making program on YouTube but it may not provide much of an income in the long run. For hundreds of views on your videos, you might only make a few cents out of your YouTube ads.

When done correctly, YouTube affiliate marketing can be a great way to make a bit of extra money off of your channel. It may not be enough to live on, but it can certainly give you a little extra spending money. By being genuine and purposeful with your links, and signing up to programs that provide products or services that you think will genuinely benefit your audience, you are much more likely to get clicks and make commission, and in the end, both you and the viewer win. Before you do though, don't forget to read up on the do's and don'ts of affiliate marketing, as it's all to easy to get caught in a pitfall.


“I came across LeadDyno a couple of months ago when i was unhappy with my existing referral partner software. After an easy integration i found the software really easy to use and their custom affiliate dashboard looked great too. As i built out my dashboard with banners and emails we encountered a few bugs but these guys were right onto it and provided a 5 star customer service for me (and was on the other side of the world from them, so they had to do out of hours calls and skype). “When i started digging in to the software even more i found a whole other area where it tracked leads and customers, where they were referring from and it now highlights areas on the web where my business is being talked about and i am able to participate or flag for later marketing opportunities. “The payment system is super easy to use too.my referral partners are stoked. Can’t recommend it enough.”
Today, we hardly know anyone, who does not have a Facebook or Twitter account. There will also not be a single person, who does not watch videos from YouTube. We will find a minority that is not active on social media. In this way, you can consider social media a robust medium to promote your business as you can find customers from online conversations and scrolling timelines. It has become comparatively easier as people access the Internet over their mobile phones and smart phones.
As a rule, you shouldn’t post more than three times a day so that doesn’t leave you that many opportunities to post your affiliate links. In general, you should only invest time and efforts in Facebook marketing If you already have an audience, which trusts you and mostly uses Facebook. Otherwise treat it as a platform for sharing and promoting your content and driving more traffic to your website (where you can put as many affiliate links as you want, just don’t go too crazy).
Nice tips here, Steve. I’ve been a huge fan of YouTube for niches other than IM-related stuff. Apart from a few outliers, my Blogging Bookshelf and The Backlight videos never got too many views. How do your SSS vids fare? My Amazopia videos, though, have 220,000+ views now and are the main source of traffic for the blog. And I know you’ve said in the past that you get lots of YouTube traffic for your main niche.
I do quite a bit of successful affiliate marketing on my websites. But other than marketing indirectly through my posts that go up through twitterfeed, I’m just not going there on twitter. I see twitter as a way to network, socialize with friends, and stay more in touch with readers. I don’t want to start trying to turn it into a directly monetized venture. I think the risks of alienating people is too high and the potential monetary gain not all great.
The key, if you want to use Twitter for marketing, is to be as concise as possible. This doesn’t mean using a lot of ‘internet speak’ and acronyms, it means getting straight to the point when you post an update. There is no set rule for how many tweets you should send and how many should feature an affiliate link. When you post a link to Twitter you expect people to click on it but doing this all day, every day will only put people off.

When you work as an affiliate marketer, creating social media profiles is always a great idea, Twitter included. When creating these profiles, make sure they correspond with your website’s touch and feel. This way, Twitter will feel like an extension of your online presence. Within the platform, you’ll be aiming at expanding your social media presence.

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.

Social media has been around for a long time now - MySpace started getting traction in 2004, then Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and the rest, followed. It's become accepted that social media isn't just for children, and isn't just a toy. Given that most people know this, how do you maximize the value of being on social channels? Let's look at how to make money on social media with affiliate marketing.
The thing I love most about Twitter is that it a listening device. A lot of people use it and promote it as a broadcasting tool (which is can be useful for) but I’m increasingly finding it to be a fantastic way to hear what people are thinking – both about life in general but also you. If you engage in affiliate marketing on twitter make sure you stay in tune with how people respond. This doesn’t just mean watching what people ‘reply’ to you but also means watching what happens to subscriber numbers after you tweet and also watching what people say about you without using your @username (you can set up an RSS feed on Twitter search to watch for keywords like your name).
Let’s say you’re promoting ConvertKit as an affiliate of their system. Instead of doing a video where you’re constantly saying “buy ConvertKit through my link”, you may do a video titled, “How to Use Email Marketing to Double Your Revenue”. Then as an asset and tool in that video and process, you mention ConvertKit and that the viewer can get their first 30 days free by using the link in the comments.
In other words, you might have to pay higher commissions to get good affiliates up front. This strategy is an important aspect of cultivating the best affiliate program because you’ll make up for that cost through the lifetime value of each customer. Please note that while I certainly would recommend offering high commission rates, you still need to make a profit on your products so make sure to do your math and arrange your budget accordingly.

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.
Over the weekend I learned that my neighbor wants to become an affiliate marketer. He’s a contractor. Though he earns a good living through his work, he’s been learning WordPress and would like to take a shot at building an affiliate site. It got me thinking. There is an ocean of information available for how to do affiliate marketing, but there are not a lot of affiliate trainers I trust enough to recommend to my neighbor. 
What does this mean? In this case, it means demonstrating your authority and/or expertise in the subject area on which your marketing will focus. So if you are looking to sell online poker affiliate programs, link to good-quality news content that you have written yourself, or that you have seen on a trusted source, and give your readers something they did not have, or did not know, before. This is a good, positive, way to establish your brand.

SkimLinks is primarily for established content producers (bloggers) who want to monetize their content. With a powerful WordPress plugin and scripts for just about any website type, setting up SkimLinks is very easy. And because you have access to all offers on their platform after you’re approved, SkimLinks is very well designed for affiliates who don’t want to spend a lot of time fiddling around with settings and other fine-tuning.
I had that experience as well. Getting high monthly page views doesn’t necessarily translate to more traffic. You also need to focus on the conversion rate of your pins. For each pin, divide the number of clicks by the number of close ups. That gives you the conversation rate. You want that number to be at least 50%. Make a note of the pins that have the highest conversation rates and see what design elements they have in common. They create more pins like them. Hope that helps.
Perhaps the first thing that you need to keep in mind to grow your business via Twitter is to connect to as many friends, customers, and people as possible. It is ideal that you follow top leaders or people and companies in your industry. By doing this you will be able to attract your target audience and also have the opportunities to engage within the Twitter community. When following people, make sure to avoid spammy techniques like using automated systems to follow other Twitter members. To connect with your audience in Twitter you want to show that you are not a bot but that you are constantly present and you participate within the community.
If you want to go deeper, again, social media listening is your friend. I mentioned Twitter above as a platform where you’re welcome to interact with strangers. Set up your queries in such a way that you’ll be able to find relevant conversations. For example, if you’re promoting an app to enhance productivity, set up such queries as “how to improve productivity”, “productivity hacks”, “apps for productivity” and anything else that your brain can come up with. You can do the same for your blog. With a Boolean search mode, you’ll be able to customize your queries to find people who’re looking for recommendations, conducting market research or even complaining about competing products. Once you found these posts, you can offer them a solution with your affiliate link (again, be nice and natural).
Book mail and a book haul! Thank you very much @berkleypub for sending me a free copy of Vox to review! Gonna be reading this dystopian read this month! 🙌 . Hunger by Roxane Gay has been on my radar FOREVER so I was thrilled when @willoughbybooks chose it as my last subscription book! I’m very sad that my two year subscription has ran out but I’ll be resubscribing when I get a full time job 😍 and if you want to subscribe in the mean time, use the link in my bio to save 10%! #affiliate . The other three are charity shop finds from my outing this morning! I can’t resist picking up Toni Morrisons now and the other two just caught my eye. Idaho is described as a raw family drama and The L-Shaped Room is the account of a pregnant single girl in 1950s London! . I would love to hear your thoughts if you’ve read any of these! ☺️ . . . . . . . . . . . #voxbook #christinadalcher #hunger #roxanegay #tonimorrison #bookhaul #bibliophile #bookstagram #reading #igreads #bookworm #booknerd #booklover #booklove #lovebooks #bookish #bookaddict #read #fiction #secondhandbooks

I’d stick with Amazon if I were you. All of my Amazon sites only have Amazon affiliate links. If you use Google Adsense display ads on your site, you’re literally taking people away from your site for the sake of just a few cents with these type of ads. If you direct them just to Amazon, then you have a greater chance of earning more money from that click.


The beauty guru's are not to be left out, you too can cash in with the Sigma Beauty Affiliate Program. All you need to do is sign up with the sigma beauty affiliates program, receive your affiliate code and read through their instructions for how to maximize your income through their program. Sigma prefers that you include the links in your about section and youtube video descriptions as well as mentioning each brush that you use by name, so the audience know which link to click. How much you receive is dependent on what kind of marketing you do and how heavy you sell the products.
4. Perhaps the most blatant offender is the reply spammer, which is relatively new to the scene. These people reply to popular Twitter users with an affiliate link, and try to trick people into clicking. These reply spammers also try to trick the popular person’s followers, because at first glance, it looks like the Tweet is coming from them. Considering most of these tweets look identical, I simply click the block button and move on. Get blocked often enough and you’ll be suspended. Good luck getting your account back.
That’s right, although you might see YouTubers using much nicer (and expensive equipment) such as Pat Flynn, this is not a requirement. In fact, we highly recommend you use what you have first to decide if using YouTube for affiliate marketing is a strategy you like. If not, then you won’t have wasted any money. As with everything else, I don’t recommend you put time and effort into anything unless you actually enjoy it. Play to your strengths! If it is something you enjoy, though, then you can make an informed decision on what equipment you might want to upgrade to eventually.

Facebook is seen as your company’s second website. The way the business pages are organized allow you to put pretty much all information a potential customer or follower needs to know about your business on the page. This means it’s likely that your Facebook Page is going to be your customer’s first stop when checking out your social media profiles.

By creating a favorite things page, you can direct interested parties from all of your social platforms to this page when they ask about anything you love or use. AND you can include that link in your YouTube description knowing that it can continually be updated and improved so present and future viewers of your videos will be able to see the updated version at all times.
Besides affiliate links, publishers can get access to tracking reports (clicks, sales, impressions), additional promotional materials (banners, copy, email templates) inside the retailer’s affiliate platform. These platforms also handle commission payments so publishers can expect to be paid around the same time each month, usually by Paypal or direct deposit.
