How Do I Get Started In Affiliate Marketing?

Hello,
I’ve been searching the internet to learn affiliate marketing.
However, there’s no clear answer (imo). I’m confused on how to start.
What are the steps?
  1. Create a landing page first?
  2. Join a network?
  3. Do I buy ads to direct traffic to a lead page?
I’m really confused. Not sure what direction to take. Also, is there a network that will hire beginners?
I can code, design, and do some copywriting. I learned the basics of digital marketing. And I’m willing to invest some money for ads. I’m ready to use my skills to learn and make money online.
If anyone is reading, please help me. I know it’s a ridiculous simple question, I just need some help.
Thank you

How To Get Started In Affiliate Marketing And (Make $1,000 Per Day) submitted by mdelacruz05 to u/mdelacruz05 [link] [comments]

I have written a no-fluff book about how to get started in Affiliate Marketing (it's free)

Here's the chapter explaining what Affiliate Marketing is (hopefully someone finds it useful):
Chapter 2. What is Affiliate Marketing?
I tend to get suspicious when someone uses big words and unnecessarily long sentences to describe what they do. There’s usually a much easier explanation.
Affiliate marketing isn’t complicated, and can effectively be summarized as: getting paid to promote other people’s products.
That’s all it is.
When we discuss affiliate marketing online, it usually refers to promoting a product online and being paid a commission for each successful sale.
As an affiliate (faster way of saying “affiliate marketer”), you’re not working directly for the company that sells the products you’re promoting. Instead, you are affiliated—you have entered into an agreement with them that states you will be compensated every time someone purchases the product and that the sale can be traced back to you (an important point).
So really there are two parts to understanding what’s going on: (a) promoting a product and (b) being paid for it. I’ll go through these in detail.
(a) Promoting a product (or service)
Let’s use an example from the real world.
Suppose you have been asked to help out as a nightclub promoter—one of those people that stand outside bars or clubs at night and try to convince people to go in.
What’s the product or service being promoted? The nightclub.
How is success being measured? By counting the number of people that agree to go inside.
Note, however, that in this scenario you’re not actually an affiliate if you’re working directly for one nightclub (you’re an employee). To complete our analogy, imagine that you’re a free agent—you stand on a street that has a number of different nightclubs and talk to a lot of people passing by, claiming that you know where the best party is that night. Once people start listening to your advice, you hand them flyers for particular nightlife events going on nearby.
That’s essentially what being an affiliate is. But how do you get paid?
(b) Being paid for promoting something
In our nightlife promotion example, you would likely approach nightclub managers and tell them: “look, every night I can influence where 50+ people go to party and have fun. I’m open to sending them to your nightclub, as long as I get paid a small bonus every time it happens.”
The nightclub has little to lose in this arrangement—provided they pay you less than what each customer is going to spend in the club that night. If drinks are $10 and people order about 5 per night, then it makes complete sense to pay $10 for each customer referred.
The nightclub would then issue you special flyers (or business cards) with your name on them. You hand them out to people, asking them to show it to the bouncer to get in for free. The bouncer takes the cards, and at the end of the night someone counts them and pays you for each card that was received.
Easy, right?
It works in a similar way online (don’t worry, we won’t be discussing the nightlife promotion business any more).
The simplest form of affiliate marketing online is:
• You start a website about a particular subject (“niche”)
• On your website, you promote third-party (someone else’s) products or services by placing a link directly to their website
• If your visitors go on to purchase (or even sign-up) for something on the websites you’re promoting, you get paid a commission
The way online tracking (attribution) works is simple.
Here’s an example of an online clothing store (I made this up): RidiculousHats.com
Here’s a regular (i.e. non-affiliate) link to a single item on this website:
RidiculousHats.com/shop/hats/wizard-cap.html 
Here’s the same product link, except with an affiliate ID (tracking code) added:
RidiculousHats.com/shop/hats/wizard-cap.html?affid=johnsmith22 
On this site (presumably about hats), you’d link directly to the product you’re promoting—links that contain your unique affiliate ID.
?affid= is a parameter, and johnsmith22 is the value of that parameter. In this scenario, anyone who goes to that product page through a URL that contains ?affid=johnsmith22 is considered to have been referred by whoever was assigned the johnsmith22 affiliate ID.
In our fictional example, RidiculousHats.com is an e-commerce store and is likely working with many affiliates at any given time. In fact, there’s nothing stopping you from generating multiple affiliate IDs for your own us—this is helpful if you want to track which of your links is more effective at generating conversions (sales).
Common Question #1: What happens if I refer someone to a product page, but they don’t buy (or sign-up) for anything in that visit?
Well, then you won’t be paid anything. In the vast majority of cases, the affiliate payout model is based on generating leads or sales—you only get paid if the user takes a certain action.
Note: this is what marketers mean when they refer to CPA (Cost Per Action). If a product has an affiliate payout of $3.00 CPA, for example, it means you’ll be paid $3.00 for each successful action.
Other useful terms to get familiar with:
• CPL (Cost Per Lead): how much you’d make every time the user signs up for a lead form (Examples: signing up for an online dating site, or submitting their name and contact information to enter a lucky draw).
• CPS (Cost Per Sale): how much you’d make for generating an actual sale of something. For example, you may be paid $10 each time someone buys a microwave through your affiliate link.
• CPI (Cost Per Install): how much you’d make each time the user installs a program (like a smartphone app, for example).
There are many more terms, which we’ll get into as they come up.
Note: you may be wondering why these acronyms all start with “Cost”—after all, aren’t we referring to Revenue (how much you get paid)? Remember that your payout is someone else’s cost—the advertiser, in this case, is paying you (the marketer) for each successful “conversion.” To them, it’s a cost.
Common Question #2: What happens if I refer someone, but they don’t buy anything until their second (or third, fourth, etc.) visit to the site? Do they have to go through my link each time in order for me to get credit?
Great question. To understand how all this works, let’s go back to the first time someone clicks on your affiliate link—and lands on an advertiser’s product page.
Consider the following (imaginary) scenario:
• You run a blog called “Harry’s Hat Reviews”
• On your blog, you link to some hats that you like on RidiculousHats.com (a site that you are an affiliate for)
• Someone (“Bob”) visits your site and clicks on one of your affiliate links, taking them directly to that product page on RidiculousHats.com
As soon as Bob lands on RidiculousHats.com, some information is stored in Bob’s web browser (common browsers are Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari). That information contains various details, including the time Bob first visited RidiculousHats.com, what browser he’s using, and so on. Most importantly, this information contains the affiliate tracking information—if any exist. In this case, Bob’s browser would now have a record showing that “Harry’s Hat Reviews” referred Bob to the site. All this information is commonly known as a “cookie.”
To answer the initial question: you will still get credited for sales made on subsequent visits, as long as the person you referred uses the same browser when they make a purchase. For example, if Bob clicks on your link on his office computer, but then visits RidiculousHats.com separately on his cellphone... you won’t get the sale (two different browsers).
You also won’t get credited if Bob “clears” his cookies before making a purchase (people rarely do this, so it’s not really a concern for affiliates). Keep in mind that cookies have an expiration date. If an advertiser offers affiliates a “30-day cookie,” it means that you’ll get credit for any purchases made in the entire 30-day period after someone visits through your link. This can vary: Amazon’s affiliate program has a 24-hour cookie, while there are e-retailers that routinely offer 90 days.
Common Question #3: What if I refer someone to a page, they visit it, but then go through someone else’s affiliate link and then buy something? Who gets the credit?
This all depends on how the affiliate program is set up. Ultimately, it’s a piece of software that assigns credit to individual affiliates—the software can be configured many different ways:
  1. First affiliate to drive the visitor to the site gets credit (as long as the cookie has not “expired”)
  2. Last affiliate to drive a visitor to the site (prior to the purchase) gets the credit for the purchase
  3. The credit is split somehow
  4. Neither affiliate gets the credit (Example: the user clicks your affiliate link, goes to the product site, and doesn’t buy anything. Then, the user performs a Google search for that product and clicks the company’s Google search ad to get to the site again. In this case, the attribution software may give all the credit for that sale/conversion to the last channel—paid search).
In short, it depends. However, I recommend not worrying about credit and attribution at this stage—much of this is out of an individual affiliate’s control. Over time, you will learn to identify affiliate programs that work best for you and your choice of traffic/niche. Let’s move on for now.
Common Question #4: How much money can I make per conversion?
Again, this depends on how much the advertiser is willing to pay for each affiliate- driven lead or sale.
Here are some (broad) numbers to give you a sense of typical payouts:
• Form submit (e.g. “Enter your details to Win a free iPod!”): $0.50 - $2.00
• Website sign-up (e.g. registration for a dating website): $2.00 - $5.00
• Purchase of a paid service (e.g. movie streaming site): $20.00 - $40.00
• Purchase of something on Amazon.com: 1% - 10% (depending on product category and on number of items ordered—I’ll go into Amazon in detail later)
• Purchase of high ticket item (e.g. booking a private jet flight): $250+
Please note: these are just ballpark estimates—payouts vary greatly across offers. In fact, payouts can also vary between two affiliates promoting the same thing! (One affiliate may be sending a substantial number of leads and thus qualifying for better payment terms).
Just because one offer pays more doesn’t mean it will be more profitable (for you).
Choosing the right offer to promote is an acquired skill, and I’ll do my best to give you good advice in later chapters.
That's just the intro chapter. The whole book is free this week on the Kindle store. It's available here: https://www.amazon.com/No-Bullshit-Guide-Affiliate-Marketing-Online-ebook/dp/B01MRFK58D

What Is Affiliate Marketing?

Affiliate marketing is the process by which an affiliate earns a commission for marketing another person’s or company’s products. The affiliate simply searches for a product they enjoy, then promotes that product and earns a piece of the profit from each sale they make. The sales are tracked via affiliate links from one website to another.

How Does Affiliate Marketing Work?

Because affiliate marketing works by spreading the responsibilities of product marketing and creation across parties, it manages to leverage the abilities of a variety of individuals for a more effective marketing strategy while providing contributors with a share of the profit. To make this work, three different parties must be involved:
  1. Seller and product creators.
  2. The affiliate or advertiser.
  3. The consumer.
Let’s delve into the complex relationship these three parties share to ensure affiliate marketing is a success.

1. Seller and product creators.

The seller, whether a solo entrepreneur or large enterprise, is a vendor, merchant, product creator, or retailer with a product to market. The product can be a physical object, like household goods, or a service, like makeup tutorials. Also known as the brand, the seller does not need to be actively involved in the marketing, but they may also be the advertiser and profit from the revenue sharing associated with affiliate marketing.

2. The affiliate or publisher.

Also known as a publisher, the affiliate can be either an individual or a company that markets the seller’s product in an appealing way to potential consumers. In other words, the affiliate promotes the product to persuade consumers that it is valuable or beneficial to them and convince them to purchase the product. If the consumer does end up buying the product, the affiliate receives a portion of the revenue made.
Affiliates often have a very specific audience to whom they market, generally adhering to that audience’s interests. This creates a defined niche or personal brand that helps the affiliate attract consumers who will be most likely to act on the promotion.

3. The consumer.

Whether the consumer knows it or not, they (and their purchases) are the drivers of affiliate marketing. Affiliates share these products with them on social media, blogs, and websites.
When consumers buy the product, the seller and the affiliate share the profits. Sometimes the affiliate will choose to be upfront with the consumer by disclosing that they are receiving commission for the sales they make. Other times the consumer may be completely oblivious to the affiliate marketing infrastructure behind their purchase.
Either way, they will rarely pay more for the product purchased through affiliate marketing; the affiliate’s share of the profit is included in the retail price. The consumer will complete the purchase process and receive the product as normal, unaffected by the affiliate marketing system in which they are a significant part.

How Do Affiliate Marketers Get Paid?

A quick and inexpensive method of making money without the hassle of actually selling a product, affiliate marketing has an undeniable draw for those looking to increase their income online. But how does an affiliate get paid after linking the seller to the consumer? The answer is complicated. The consumer doesn’t always need to buy the product for the affiliate to get a kickback. Depending on the program, the affiliate’s contribution to the seller’s sales will be measured differently. The affiliate may get paid in various ways:

1. Pay per sale.

This is the standard affiliate marketing structure. In this program, the merchant pays the affiliate a percentage of the sale price of the product after the consumer purchases the product as a result of the affiliate’s marketing strategies. In other words, the affiliate must actually get the investor to invest in the product before they are compensated.

2. Pay per lead.

A more complex system, pay per lead affiliate programs compensates the affiliate based on the conversion of leads. The affiliate must persuade the consumer to visit the merchant’s website and complete the desired action — whether it’s filling out a contact form, signing up for a trial of a product, subscribing to a newsletter, or downloading software or files.

3. Pay per click.

This program focuses on incentivizing the affiliate to redirect consumers from their marketing platform to the merchant’s website. This means the affiliate must engage the consumer to the extent that they will move from the affiliate’s site to the merchant’s site. The affiliate is paid based on the increase in web traffic.

Why Be an Affiliate Marketer?

What are the reasons to become an affiliate marketer?

1. Passive income.

While any “regular” job requires you to be at work to make money, affiliate marketing offers you the ability to make money while you sleep. By investing an initial amount of time into a campaign, you will see continuous returns on that time as consumers purchase the product over the following days and weeks. You receive money for your work long after you’ve finished it. Even when you’re not in front of your computer, your marketing skills will be earning you a steady flow of income.

2. No customer support.

Individual sellers and companies offering products or services have to deal with their consumers and ensure they are satisfied with what they have purchased. Thanks to the affiliate marketing structure, you’ll never have to be concerned with customer support or customer satisfaction. The entire job of the affiliate marketer is to link the seller with the consumer. The seller deals with any consumer complaints after you receive your commission from the sale.

3. Work from home.

If you’re someone who hates going to the office, affiliate marketing is the perfect solution. You’ll be able to launch campaigns and receive revenue from the products that sellers create while working from the comfort of your own home. This is a job you can do without ever getting out of your pajamas.

4. Cost-effective.

Most businesses require startup fees as well as a cash flow to finance the products being sold. However, affiliate marketing can be done at a low cost, meaning you can get started quickly and without much hassle. There are no affiliate program fees to worry about and no need to create a product. Beginning this line of work is relatively straightforward.

5. Convenient and flexible.

Since you’re essentially becoming a freelancer, you get ultimate independence in setting your own goals, redirecting your path when you feel so inclined, choosing the products that interest you, and even determining your own hours. This convenience means you can diversify your portfolio if you like or focus solely on simple and straightforward campaigns. You’ll also be free from company restrictions and regulations as well as ill-performing teams.

6. Performance-Based rewards.

With other jobs, you could work an 80-hour week and still earn the same salary. Affiliate marketing is purely based on your performance. You’ll get from it what you put into it. Honing your reviewing skills and writing engaging campaigns will translate to direct improvements in your revenue. You’ll finally get paid for the outstanding work you do!

7. Do Not Underestimate the Power of SEO.

There’s a ton of organic traffic you can get from search engines if you do SEO properly. The days when Search Engine Optimization was about cheating Google are gone. Today, it is about making your website better for visitors. People naturally look for information online. That’s why you should learn the basics of on-page SEO, keyword research and link building to be the information source they find first. Who wouldn’t want to rank #1 for terms such as “best product” or “product review” in Google?

Common Types of Affiliate Marketing Channels

Most affiliates share common practices to ensure that their audience is engaged and receptive to purchasing promoted products. But not all affiliates advertise the products in the same way. In fact, there are several different marketing channels they may leverage.

1. Influencers.

An influencer is an individual who holds the power to impact the purchasing decisions of a large segment of the population. This person is in a great position to benefit from affiliate marketing. They already boast an impressive following, so it’s easy for them to direct consumers to the seller’s products through social media posts, blogs, and other interactions with their followers. The influencers then receive a share of the profits they helped to create.

2. Bloggers.

With the ability to rank organically in search engine queries, bloggers excel at increasing a seller’s conversions. The blogger samples the product or service and then writes a comprehensive review that promotes the brand in a compelling way, driving traffic back to the seller’s site.
The blogger is awarded for his or her influence spreading the word about the value of the product, helping to improve the seller’s sales. For example, my article on the best email marketing services includes product reviews and affiliate links throughout.

3. Paid search focused microsites.

Developing and monetizing microsites can also garner a serious amount of sales. These sites are advertised within a partner site or on the sponsored listings of a search engine. They are distinct and separate from the organization’s main site. By offering more focused, relevant content to a specific audience, microsites lead to increased conversions due to their simple and straightforward call to action.

4. Email lists.

Despite its older origins, email marketing is still a viable source of affiliate marketing income. Some affiliates have email lists they can use to promote the seller’s products. Others may leverage email newsletters that include hyperlinks to products, earning a commission after the consumer purchases the product. Another method is for the affiliate to build an email list over time. They use their various campaigns to collect emails en masse, then send out emails regarding the products they are promoting.

5. Large media websites.

Designed to create a huge amount of traffic at all times, these sites focus on building an audience of millions. These websites promote products to their massive audience through the use of banners and contextual affiliate links. This method offers superior exposure and improves conversion rates, resulting in a top-notch revenue for both the seller and the affiliate.

These are the questions to ask yourself to determine if you can offer coaching online. Even if no one else is doing it, that doesn’t mean you can’t be the first. The way he would offer coaching is he would create a website that tells what you offer, and pick out a payment processor like PayPal, and then advertise or market your services.

2. Selling Services

Many people get their online start by selling services. There are lots of things that people who market online need done. Website owners need links to be created and content to be written and articles to be distributed.
Head over to Upwork.com and check out some of the services that people are offering. Is there anything that you can do? You may also want to look at Fiverr.com and see what people are offering there. People are doing things as simple as making small stuffed animals and selling them for the five dollars.
If you are a good writer you are almost guaranteed to be able to make very quick money by writing articles for people. Everybody on the Internet needs content created in some way.

3. Creating Membership Sites

There are membership sites for everything that you can imagine. People will pay five dollars a month to $37 a month to hundreds of dollars a month to be able to get recurring, great information on the subject of their choice.
Are you an expert at a popular game like World of Warcraft? A membership site can be as simple as people paying you for tips tricks and help on something like this.
Membership sites can be a lot like coaching, except you would coach many people at a time by e-mail or forums instead of just one person a time. These people would pay less money but have less access to you also.

4. Selling on Ebay or Amazon

There are people making many full-time incomes selling on eBay or Amazon. Some buy from wholesalers or drop shippers, and some buy from thrift stores and yard sales.
Some start with thrift stores and yard sales and move up to wholesalers or drop shippers. Some people buy full pallets of merchandise and then sell them off piece by piece. Some people even buy a LOT of something on eBay and then resell it in smaller pieces on eBay.

5. Creating Software or Addons or Plugins for Webmasters

If this is a talent that you have, you can create software or plug-ins for websites and then market them to webmasters. Or, if you think of a good idea that will help webmasters you could pay to have the software or plug-in created and then market it.

6. Creating Videos

Videos are a very popular way to share content. There are ways to create videos and use them in your affiliate marketing efforts. Some people create viral videos that everyone links to and then there is an affiliate link underneath the video.
Other people use videos as a way to create a following and then market their product to their following, or put Google AdSense ads on their videos.

7. Creating Content / Revenue Share Websites

There are many revenue share websites where you go to the website and create content or write articles or promote products and the website lets you use their platform and splits any AdSense revenue with you.
Some examples of these are Hubpages, Redgage, Webnuggetz.

8. Blogging

Blogging is very popular although a lot less people actually make a living at it and think they are going to make a living at it when they start. Blogging takes a lot of consistent action and writing and marketing and not everybody is up for the task.
Bloggers that really make it big normally post new blog posts on a very consistent schedule like one each day. These bloggers also write on a subject that appeals to a wide variety of people, like mothers, or people looking to save money, or people looking to improve their lives.
So how do bloggers make money? Many do it with affiliate marketing – they recommend products that they use and like. Others do it with direct advertising. Companies want to advertise on their website and will pay for the privilege. Others do it with Google AdSense. Others write their own books, print books and e-books. And many bloggers use all of the above.

9. Writing and or Promoting e-books

If you have writing skills and knowledge or the ability to research or hire someone with knowledge to write an e-book then this can be a very lucrative path. Once the book is written though, or if you are just planning on promoting someone else’s e-book, you will have to figure out how to market the book.
Many people like to create a whole website about a topic and create an e-mail list too that people sign up for to get more information on the topic. They then recommend the book on the website and the e-mail list.

10. Content Websites

And the number one way to make money online is definitely content websites. Is a content website different than a blog? Yes, it is. A blog is more of an ongoing commentary, where a person shares bits of life and knowledge on a very regular posting schedule.
A content website is a website where the pages are more static, meaning they all could be put up at once and then the site may not ever get any bigger. It can get bigger, but the main purpose of the website is to give static information about something – not to be constantly updating.
A content website on a particular topic that has lots of buying opportunities related to it is a great way to get started in affiliate marketing. For example, let’s say you were to create a content website about a certain place that lots of people travel to.
You could create pages that give tips on how to travel to this place and what to do once someone gets there and you could recommend that they buy certain products like guidebooks or coupon books or even use a specific airline or booking service so that you can get a commission.
There you have it – the top 10 ways to make money online. Don’t worry about picking the wrong one, just pick one and get started. Most of these can evolve into any of the others and many of them can be combined.

Which is Better for Affiliate Marketing? Digital or Physical?

Hi, my name is TuesdayTastic and I own www.OnlyOnTuesdays27.com and I've proven to be fairly successful, getting about 10,000 views a month. I'm about to get started in affiliate marketing and after looking around for a little bit, I've come across 2 different avenues of affiliate marketing, digital and physical sales.
My question is which market sells better? I typically write articles talking about Standard and Modern decks, and I feel that I could potentially sell more cards digitally. However, the rates for physical cards are slightly better (3.5% per sale as opposed to 3%) and the cards are generally more expensive meaning more return per card sold. These rates are using Cardhoarder's affiliate program and TCGplayer's respectively.
Also, this is tangentially related, but is there anyone here that uses Crystal Commerce and knows how to set up affiliate marketing? I'd prefer to setup affilate marketing with the LGS that supports me, rather than go through TCGplayer or Cardhoarder, and I haven't been able to reach their customer support at all.
