If you find yourself working a 9-5 while still running out of money with bills to pay, you may be thinking about affiliate marketing.
You might think that commissions from affiliate marketing may not be enough to make it worth your while. In the beginning, this might be true, but like any new venture, things sometimes start slow when you have little experience in what you’re doing then snowball into a more successful outcome
How do I start with affiliate marketing?
The beauty of earning affiliate marketing commissions is that you don’t have to change careers to do it. You can keep that 40 or 60 hour a week job, so there’s no risk to you if it doesn’t work out (though there’s no reason that it shouldn’t). If you can just carve out a little bit of time to get started, and to put some effort into it, what may start small can become an extra chunk of income each month without you having to find a second part-time job or take on more overtime at work.
If you start off marketing only one product on your website, even if you are taking all of the right steps, you are highly unlikely to make a high amount of revenue during the first couple of months. However, if you continue adding valuable and interesting content to your site, successfully promote it, rank up high on search engines and stay consistent, that site can see you earning very big marketing commissions for very little work.
If you continue marketing with several different affiliate programs on that website and it keeps growing and getting more traction and visitors, eventually each one will earn you more and more money and you’ll end up with several different income streams that consist of different sources of affiliate marketing commissions.
It’s common for affiliate marketers to starts with a single website and expand to several at a fast pace, with some actually owning dozens of sites, each focused on a specific niche and type of product. Those earnings can then go back into investing and growing your affiliate marketing commissions. The more visitors you get, the more you’ll earn. This circle of income continues to grow and grow as time passes.
A great way to earn several different marketing commissions is to use one of the many affiliate marketing companies available today. You sign up with one company, choose from the merchants who use them as payment collectors, get all of your affiliate materials and links in one place, and then you get paid all of your commissions at once through the affiliate marketing company.
These are great for beginners, because you can track statistics, clicks, how many people purchased and what percentage of clicks that came from each individual link. This allows you to see which worked best. You can adjust your efforts based on those performance reports, to earn more commissions and sales. It’s easy to get started making affiliate marketing commissions with just a little time, knowledge and effort. With a few tweaks you can boost your rankings and commission to it’s fullest potential.
