Some people have also observed that WordPress sites seem to be favored slightly by google over static sites and those on other blogging platforms. While the jury on this is still out, and different types of site go in and out of fashion as new algorithm updates are rolled out, it makes sense that Google would give preference to the platform of choice for big and authoritative sites.
Showing the wrong price is a violation of Amazon’s terms and conditions. As you know, the price in Amazon, so it’s a good practice not to share the amount in your site. If you can maintain the update, then there’s no obligation. But, the question is how would you get your website updated especially when there’s a ton of links. Don’t risk to include the price unless you’re able to connect Amazon’s API for an instant update.
It’s a great way to make passive income. Of course, when I say “passive”, this doesn’t account for the time needed to spend building or maintaining your WordPress site. However, in terms of having to promote these affiliate links, you can put in as much or as little work as you want to drive traffic to them. This obviously makes this a great option for a passive income stream if you’re not in the business of e-commerce.
Let me show you the process, the strategy that I use to launch this. Number one, what I did is I created what’s called a pre-launch video. You’ll notice that I created this video back in December 22nd. Why did I do that? Well, I wanted to position myself so when this specific product launched and people were going to YouTube and even Google to search for this product that I was positioned at the top so my video would actually be viewed first and it would rank.
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.
You can start figuring out your target audience by focusing on reading the reviews in your niche. You can also spend some time on forums and read the comment section on blogs that cover your niche topics. If you notice some unanswered questions emerging over and over again, write them down. Your audience needs them answered, and you can do it for them. Or you can do an online search for best niche blogs and see how they are structured.
If you’re the vendor, then you create your own product and set it up using Clickbank’s system. They then list your product in their marketplace so that tens of thousands of affiliates can see you. They handle the tracking using unique tracking links and cookies so they know exactly where the sale came from and credit the referring account accordingly.
Whether you’ve been looking for a way to earn a bit of money on the side or earn a full-time income with a bit more flexibility, it’s time to look into affiliate marketing programs for beginners. That’s how many of your favorite bloggers earn a regular income. The best part is that it’s relatively simple to get started, even with a basic “affiliate marketing for dummies”-level of knowledge. Affiliate marketing is easy to understand but does require you to invest either time or money. Is it right for you? Read on to find out.
WooCommerce users will enjoy AffiliateWP’s easy integration and international functionality.

If you don't know, Shopify is an e-commerce platform that allows users to set up their own e-commerce site and become an entrepreneurs quickly and easily. By spreading the word about Shopify and encouraging your audience to sign up to it (using the link you provide) you can earn an average of $58 dollars for every user that signs up using your link. Shopify provides you with 24/7 support and links to blogs, video tutorials and so on that will help to explain to your audience what Shopify is and how it works.
Some affiliate programs pay just 15 days after the end of the month, but most affiliate programs will take between 30 days and up to three months to pay you. This is normally because they need to verify the sale, and because sometimes they offer a 30-day refund. If someone decides to cancel their purchase, and ask for a refund you will lose your commission.
Finally, the promoting your link method. This method makes it a little tougher to build a community of readers than the others because you’re never truly interacting with them. You will simply display your affiliate link online and let customers use the link to make purchases. You don’t have to have a website; you can use banners and links to advertise on other sites, search engines, and social media to promote your link, which will bring in sales from people who were interested enough to click the link. Personally, I would recommend either of the other two options if you want to build loyalty with your audience, but if you’re looking for something short-term, this method is easy and perfect for you.

Recommendation marketing is an important source of income for your online store. Encourage your customers to invite their friends to buy also on your site, via a link, social networks or an email. Your customers promote your products or services. Whenever a friend signs up on your site through these links, the initial customer can benefit from discount coupons.
Think about affiliate link placement in your posts. I can often tell a blogger’s intention is to monetize a post with an affiliate link. However, there will be either a gigantic introduction (lots of words!) or other links (that take the reader away from the post) before the affiliate link shows up once. Eliminate distractions. Put your affiliate link as close to the beginning of a post as works naturally. And of course disclose first.
Yeah. So I used to run a blog that I learned a ton about affiliate marketing with. And I recently sold that blog and came over to YouTube and started a YouTube channel, and realized that nobody was using affiliate links. And I was like, what is going on? Especially the huge channels weren’t using these, and they weren’t using them the right way. And I thought, oh, I’ve got to tell everyone that they can make a lot of money without sponsored videos. So I’ve just come over and started my own channel about helping people live the ultimate life for less, and been incorporating affiliate links and then showing other people how to do it.
You may not know this, but you can create an eCommerce store with the WooCommerce plugin even if you don’t have any of your own products to sell. You can list external products from other companies and simply link to their sales pages from the affiliate product pages on your site. This allows you to send high-converting traffic to vendors and earn great commissions.

Thanks for the tips, Tiffany! It was very helpful. I just started my blog about a month ago and just signed up for Shareasale. I do have a further question. Do you know what blog post on Shareasale’s blog, gives me the best information in getting started and what I need to do? I am finding it hard to navigate my way through and really get an idea of the best way to start. It’s all quite overwhelming. Or is there a post that you have to guide me better?

What I did is I went to JVNotifyPro, and you can go to either one of these. On MunchEye.com, you can see the big launches on the left-hand side here. This is typically all the launches that are going to have a lot of affiliates. We can also go to JVNotifyPro. We can scroll down here, and what I did is I went to January 23rd. This was back around the end of December, and I saw this offer by Aidan Booth and Steve Clayton. It’s The 7-Figure Cycle. It’s an eCommerce product, and what I did is I looked at the Clicks to JV page. If this over 1,000 unique clicks, even over 500, it means it’s going to be a pretty popular product. It’s going to be a good launch.
No links…that’s what has me so confused by all of it. I received snail mail from these affiliates with this info, my tax gal says something to do with the IRS but when I go looking for info….there’s lots of confusion. I’m as mixed up as a swirley on this. I pay income on everything and don’t take stuff I know I could because my …tax gal’s from a different era and…well…it’s REALLY hard explaining this job to someone that remembers when computers weren’t even invented. Och I need a new number cruncher.

Affiliate marketing is a program used by companies that allows people like you and me to promote their products, and make money doing it. Anyone can get started as long as they are passionate and dedicated, but many articles you find on the subject contain lots of confusing acronyms and other things that are difficult to comprehend if you’re just starting to learn about the business.
Thats a great point, and I’ve definitely seen my fair share of those “how to start a blog” posts. That’s always been a good fit for people at Location 180, and if they do a good job on the post (truly make it useful) that’s one that doesnt bother me as much – solely because I know how valuable starting a blog can be for your life and goals. So if it’s some personal finance blogger that creates one and you start a blog from that by following their tutorial – all the better!
