Affiliate marketing is becoming a way for people to achieve financial freedom.
Many affiliate marketers are buying the latest cars, going on vacation trips to other countries and investing in real estate properties.
Affiliate marketing is recommending a companies product or service and earning a commission for a sale.
There are four parties involved in the affiliate marketing process.
We start with the affiliate website. This site contains the product or services that an affiliate marketer will promote or sell. This website links to the advertiser’s product page which is known as the affiliate link.
The advertiser could be anyone who sells a product or service through an online store.
The affiliate network provides a tracking cookie into a buyer’s browser when they buy from an advertiser’s website as a result of clicking on an affiliate link from the affiliate’s site.
This type of marketing has become popular because of the many advantages it gives to affiliates.
An affiliate will be able to sell excellent products and services that they did not manufacture, buy or store. The profit potential is also tremendous, especially with high paying networks.
When done the right way, affiliate marketing can easily give you passive income. It is not as easy as some may think. It entails hard work and effort in learning how things work and implementing them.
Affiliates also get to work anytime and anywhere as long as there is an internet connection. You can also choose the products or services that you want to sell. Affiliates with a strong social influence can get some perks from advertisers. Free samples and other perks are given so that a brand can boost it’s following.
The latest trend in affiliate marketing is to promote video affiliate marketing.
Many people choose not to do this tactic because they think that it is hard to do.
The fact is anyone can make a simple video given the right tools. Tools like the Animoto program can help you create a multimedia presentation in minutes.
As an affiliate marketer, uploading a video can help you make more money compared to sticking with text content.
The first step in making a video for affiliate marketing is finding a target keyword. Use Google Adwords Keyword External Tool, once you have chosen the best keyword that is trending your next step is to look for an affiliate product.
You can go to an affiliate site like Clickbank and search for a product that you feel will sell based on your chosen keyword.
Once you have chosen your product or service, you can now make your video. Go to the Animoto website to get started. You can try out the service for free.
You proceed by choosing a background. You can pick one depending on the season like Christmas backgrounds if you plan to upload your video during the holidays.
For all season videos, you should pick a simple background that will work no matter what season it is. You add the text to your slides by coming up with a 22 letter maximum count for Header and 30 letter maximum number for Text.
Add photos and images to your slides. You can also add background music if you want to.
You can now produce video and wait for the software to put it all together. Once done you can download in MP4 format.
You can now upload the finished video on Youtube to see how it looks like on the site.
Youtube is a search engine like Google so you need to optimize your videos so that you can get quality backlinks.
Simple affiliate videos can take only 10 minutes per video to make. This means that you can make many videos a day for money-making affiliate products and media outreach services.
