Affiliate marketing basically means you partner up with companies or individuals selling a product. They give you a special link that tracks your sales with a commission % of everything you sell. So who can you partner with so you can start selling immediately?
Have you ever heard of Ebay, Amazon, or Adobe? You can become an affiliate with one of them, or all 3! Depends on how much online money you’re trying to earn. Don’t think that is it either, these are just a few names to give you an idea of some of the major players in the game.
You will need some type of platform to sell things on or to broadcast your affiliates product. I’m betting you already have a Facebook. What about an ebay account or a youtube blog?
You don’t have to have millions of followers, but hey that wouldn’t hurt. The more followers you have on as many social media platforms as possible, the more potential customers you have at your finger tips.
If you feel that you
are exceptionally good at something, whether it be parenting, gardening, or organizing… really just about anything that you think you are an expert in… then you could build how-to videos and sell those as a curriculum.
The beauty of the internet is you don’t have to wait for someone to walk into your place of business to make a sale. You can market and advertise efficiently through affiliate and influencer marketing online and have 2.6 BILLION internet users as possible new clients.
You start a subscription page for $9.99/month and you have 100 subscribers, thats an extra $1,000/month in your bank account. How many followers do you have right now? What if 10% of them subscribed to your monthly membership program.. you do the math. You see how easy it could be to get social media cash though.
Want to boost your sales? Network with leading affiliates in your industry. Email them saying you like what they do and you have a way for them to make money risk free. You let them sell your product for you for 50% of every one sold. Now you’re only making $5, but they had 300k followers and brought you new 1,500 subscribers.
These are just made up numbers to give you a point of what affiliate marketing is and how people are using it to quit there jobs through social media.
You have the ability to get the social media money just as much as anyone else. Social Currency, I love it… Nice label, Gerard.
