If you’re looking to make money online, you are in the right place.
Not everyone has a boatload of products to ship and not everyone has the time to take orders and ship them off to people.
Luckily there is a thing called “affiliate marketing”, and that’s what I’ll be showing you today to achieve such results.
The Process Explained
You’ve probably already heard of a term called affiliate marketing within your online ventures and wondered what the heck it was.
Affiliate marketing is extremely simple actually.
Basically, you sell OTHER peoples products and earn a commission.
I’ll give you an example so you get a better understanding of what I’m talking about.
1. A visitor goes to a website
2. The visitor enjoys the content on the site and clicks an affiliate link
3. That person purchases something
4. You get rewarded with a commission (money)
There is no customer service to take care of and no inventory to worry about. All you need is targeted traffic.
There 4-Step Process
1. Create a Website
A website use to take hours and a lot technical skills to create when the internet first came out.
Luckily that is not the case anymore.
A website literally takes 30 seconds and is the starting point for your online business.
My camping site is just one example of how I make money with affiliate marketing.
My Camping Site
In the image above is one of my websites making money through Amazon sales.
People read my reviews, click my links and make purchases.
I get commissions (money) and receive checks every month.
Don’t believe me?
Proof of Earnings
As you can see, making money from the internet is very real and very possible.
You can begin building your website below. Just enter the name of your website and you are ready to go.
2. Create content
Your next step is to create content for your website.
Content is in the form of text, images, sounds, videos, and even animations.
You will mostly be putting text on your site though.
People love finding the answers to their questions, and when you can answer in a fun and easy way they weren’t expecting you will stand out from the crowd and build highly valuable trust at the same time.
And then what?
Trust leads to money, which is the reason why you landed on this page, isn’t it?
Don’t freak out because you heard you’ll be writing articles either.
You don’t need any type of degree to talk with friends, so just type like you’re talking with your best friend. It builds a connection and a level of trust highly valuable within the online marketing space.
Here is an example of one short article (mine) that’s landed at the top page of Google.
Why am I showing you this? My article ONLY has 600 words.
And here’s proof that the keyword actually gets searches.
So what does all this mean?
A 600 word article that took me 1-2 hours (including pictures and affiliate links) makes me a couple of sales every month.
As long as I keep that article up I will continue to make money off of it.
The best part…
The more articles you have, the more traffic you get and the more money you make.
3. Get traffic
This is the most important part about your online business.
You can have all the best articles in the world, but without any traffic there is no money being made.
The more trust you build with your audience the more money you can make.
Google LOVES engagement and readership, originality and uniqueness.
If you can show Google you are in it to help your audience as much as possible, Google will eventually notice you and begin placing your site in front of others, and most of the time on the front page.
This is a screenshot for the traffic I received organically (from search engines), and keeps on rising each and every month.
You see, traffic does not come instantly.
It acts like a snowball effect.
Articles you write today will bring you traffic in the future, mostly within the next few weeks.
You will then KEEP receiving traffic for many years to come as long as you still have your website up.
And of course traffic = money, so you should know what the last step means.
4. Money, money, money, MONEY!
You read that correctly.
When you’ve created your website, put content on it and started getting traffic, you WILL earn commissions.
This is when the excitement really ramps up.
You will earn your first $1 and think you won the lottery!
What I have been telling you in this article is exactly what they teach at Wealthy Affiliate.
As you can see, it’s about building a website, putting in the work and reaping the rewards.
The process above is exactly how I built my blog from earning 0-4 figures in a year.
Well thanks for reading and have a great day.
