Amazon Affiliate Marketing For Beginners

Make sure you read this article ‘til the end because I will be sharing with you a lot of secrets that I’ve learned of doing affiliatemarketing for over seven years. Well who am I to even teach you affiliatemarketing, right? Well I have been doing affiliate marketingfor over seven years now, and I have a portfolio of over 11+ websites, apart from that I alsodo paid consulting, I’m a speaker and a trainer. And now comes the big question, what is affiliatemarketing? In affiliate marketing, three parties areinvolved. There’s a merchant or an affiliate network,let’s consider it to be Amazon. Then there will be you, as an affiliate. Where you will be promoting the products ofthe merchant through a special affiliate link. So when someone purchases a product throughyour affiliate link, you get a commission, that is, you make money. Now in my affiliate marketing playlist, I’llshow you step-by-step on how to sign up to the affiliate network, how to generate yourlinks, how to promote these links to thousands of people for free and then make money fromyour links. Almost all popular companies use affiliatemarketing to drive customers. Be it Amazon, Flipkart, Ola, Uber, Swiggy,FoodPanda, Zomato- almost all popular companies are doing it. But the important question is, how affiliatemarketing will help you. Well the biggest benefit is definitely onlineearning on autopilot. Today my websites are driving free trafficevery month from Google and making me affiliate commission. So now let’s talk about who can learn affiliatemarketing. You don’t need any special qualifications,you don’t need any technical background. All you need is one laptop, or a computer,and an internet connection. This is all you need. The best part about affiliate marketing isthat you are making money from the comfort of your home. There is no age limit, no massive course fee,only your willingness to learn, and your willingness to earn money online. I’m friends with people who are making $100,000per month to $300,000 per month from affiliate marketing. So now let’s talk about what is the bestway to learn affiliate marketing. Well when I started there was no one to guideme. No one to tell me the best tips, tricks, toolsor strategies that actually work. Well lucky for you, I’ll be teaching youand guiding you in every step. You need a guide, a person who has made themistakes, so that you don’t repeat those mistakes. So now let’s talk about which affiliatenetwork to focus on. There are thousands of affiliate networksin the market. I myself use 50+ affiliate networks to makemoney for my affiliate websites. So which one should you choose? While there are more complicated ones likeClickbank and the Commission Junction, where you need the knowledge of advanced digitalmarketing in order to make money. This is because the competition is just wayto high. For beginners, who are just starting out,the one I recommend is Amazon Associate. It’s easy to run and promote and now I’llbe showing you why you should be focusing only on Amazon.in. Amazon is the world’s biggest ecommercewebsite. Amazon.com is driving more than 2.5B visitorsper month. Amazon India or Amazon.in is driving morethan 360M people per month. The best part is that every experienced affiliatemarketer is only targeting Amazon.com in the US market. But there’s usually zero competition inAmazon India. So making money from an Indian Amazon associateaccount is a hundred times easier than promoting in Amazon.com on the US market. Apart from this, there is many other reasonswhy you should join the Amazon affiliate network. Once you promote your Amazon affiliate linkthe cookie period is for 24 hours. So whatever the customer ends up purchasingin the next 24 hours, you will be getting the commission for that. The second good point is that you will begetting paid the affiliate commission for the entire cart. So let’s say you refer someone to buy at-shirt. But the person ends up buying a jeans, a capand the t-shirt as well. You will be getting the affiliate commissionfor the entire cart value and not just the product that you recommend. This is the best part about the Amazon affiliatelink. And since Amazon has so much data and optimization,majority of the people end up buying so many other products and not just the product yourecommend. You can see in the image on the screen thatmajority of the products that I sold are not the products that I was promoting but theother products that people purchased when I referred them and I still got the commission. The third benefit is the Amazon brand. Amazon is now one of the biggest ecommercewebsite in India. They spend millions in advertising and noweveryone knows about Amazon. So there’s a trust from the consumers fromAmazon, so the conversion rate of people buying from Amazon is very high. This also helps in getting more sales andhence, making more affiliate commissions. I am getting a massive 3.5% conversion rate. So every hundred people I refer to Amazon,almost 3 – 4 people end up buying the products. So that’s just amazing. So now let’s talk about how can you makemoney from affiliate marketing. The easy answer is create a website and scaleit. Don’t worry, I won’t just tell you thisand end the video, in our next lesson of our affiliate marketing playlist, I will tellyou how to select a profitable niche. In lesson three I’ll show you a step-by-stepin how to create an Amazon affiliate website like a pro. I will be sharing all my strategies that I’velearned in the last 7 years of building and scaling affiliate websites. So make sure you watch our complete playlist. I even created a comprehensive ebook on howto scale an Amazon affiliate website from $0 – $1,000 per month and also how to scaleit further to $10,000 per month. If you want this ebook, all you have to dois like the video, subscribe to our channel and comment with “Yes, I want it” in thecomment section below. Once we reach a thousand likes, subscribersand comments, I will make the link of this ebook public on the description section ofthis video. There are many benefits of starting and scalingaffiliate websites. Just as I mentioned, the competition in Indiais very low. So if you watched our lessons and follow themto the heart, then I can guarantee that within few months, you will be making money. You don’t even have to work on your websitewhen your article ranks on Google search results. It’s free traffic, month on month. Unlike other platforms that come and go, Googleis not going anywhere. So you don’t have to worry that Google willgo out of fashion in a few months. People will keep on searching on Google. There are many others ways apart from affiliatelinks that you can make money from your affiliate website. You get sponsorship opportunities, brancheswill start emailing you… you’ll also be making money from sponsored links, sponsoredreviews. Like I am charging Rupees, Rs10,000 – Rs20,000for one sponsored review. And also in the end, let’s say you decideyou don’t like the Amazon affiliate website, and you want to sell it. Then the website sells for 30x its monthlyrevenue. So let’s say you’re making Rs10,000 fromyour website on a monthly basis you can sell it for Rs300,000. Now I know that many of you will ask me inthe comment section the other ways of doing affiliate marketing. Like opening a YouTube channel or doing itthrough Instagram. So let’s take each option one-by-one andshare its pros and cons. So let’s start with opening a YouTube channel. Yes, you can open a YouTube channel in anyniche. Like many other YouTubers are doing, and theyare also making good affiliate revenue. You can create a fashion-related channel andpromote fashion-related products. You can also create a technology-based YouTubechannel and promote just like Technical Guruji is doing, but the main point to stress isthat YouTube is getting competitive. Already for all the popular categories, beit fashion, be it gardening, be it technology, already YouTubers are dominating that niche. It was easier a couple of years back whenthe competition was low, and also because of the Reliance Jio wave. Now already majority of the profitable nichehas a channel dominating. Now, I’m not saying that you won’t beable to do it. Yes, you can open a YouTube channel and youwill be able to scale it. But it is extremely difficult. It will be difficult to scale, you’ll haveto be patient. You also have to show your face and you’llalso have to invest in expensive equipment. I will be creating a YouTube marketing coursevery soon on this channel so make sure you subscribe to get notified about that… But then again YouTube is more competitivecompared to the Amazon alternative that I’m telling you. Now, let’s talk about promoting affiliatelinks through Instagram. One thing that I should mention is that everysocial media platform comes and goes. So Instagram might not be able to survivein a couple of years. Also getting followers in 2019 is extremelydifficult compared to a couple of years back. Every social media platforms is going withthe pay-to-play mode. Like the case of Facebook, earlier the organicreach was very high. So let’s say you have 10,000 page likes,if you post a new post, you’ll be able to reach that 10,000 people. But now Facebook wants you to pay money inorder to reach the people who even like your page. Now the competition on Instagram is also growingbecause the people know that there’s money to be made. And also Instagram wants you to pay moneyto get those followers. So the organic growth is down. And the worst part about Instagram is thatthere is only one place where you can add the affiliate link that is the bio. So the number of links of the affiliate linkswill be far less and hence the oral commission that you make in a month will be much lower. And this is why I don’t recommend Instagramas the only source of promoting your affiliate links. The same goes for a Facebook page or a group. The organic reach is dead, so you won’tbe able to promote your affiliate links in a profitable manner. So I don’t recommend either going into Instagramor YouTube or a Facebook page or a group… rather the smart strategy is to go into alow competition area and dominate it before it gets too competitive. Also, once your affiliate sites start gettingtraffic, you can move to these verticals either YouTube channel or Instagram account. Trust me I’ve been doing this for almost7 years, I have tried and tested everything. The best strategy is to first start a website,scale it, and then move to the various verticals of YouTube and Instagram. This has given me the best results. So what is the process of making money fromaffiliate marketing through a website. Everything is explained in detail in our affiliatemarketing course playlist. But right now, I’ll be giving you a generaloverview of how all these works. The process will be something like this. The first step is to do niche research.

I’ll share with you the exact strategy thatI use to find low competition keywords that make you money not in years, but in months. The fourth step is to write articles. Either you can write it yourself, but I’llalso tell you how you can outsource it to someone else. I have spent thousands of dollars in knowingthe best article structure. How many words your article should have? What should be the button color? I have tested everything. And I’ll be sharing the perfect articletemplate with you in one of the lessons.
