Let’s jump right in to the world of affiliate marketing
#1 Affiliate Marketing Business
I call it a business because it is a business, that, if you’re going to put your heart and soul in it.
When you become an affiliate of amazon store for example, you’ll have the right to market their products with your affiliate ID in it. So when a customer decides to buy through your affiliate link, you’ll receive a small commission from that valid buy-in.
It’s an awesome type of business that doesn’t make you create your own product to sell. All you need is a link. Money comes in when someone click on the link of the product with your affiliate ID and then make a purchase. Conversion is when you convert links into money.
This is an example of an affiliate link: Affiliate Marketing: How To Make Money Online And Build Your Own $100,000+ Affiliate Marketing Online Business, Passive Income, Clickbank, Amazon Affiliate, Amazon Affiliate Program Try clicking it and you’d be redirected to amazon store. And you would notice my affiliate ID on the browser, which is: Worthy 01-20
Exciting isn’t it? Well, I’m a newbie and affiliate marketing really excites me.
So if you are interested, here’s how to start a small affiliate marketing business.
And I’d like to practice practicality, and long-term investments. So, I would suggest…
- Bluehost for your web hosting company.
Where to purchase a domain name is up to you, but I would recommend NameCheap, if you’d like to save a little.
Having a website of your own gives you more opportunities in the future. Besides, businesses accepting affiliates would most likely approve your affiliate application if you have your own website.
And of course, you have to write something in your website too. I’ve heard that choosing a specific NICHE to keep writing is also awesome; but being able to write anything in your website, ability to expand and add more niches in the future is extraordinary. So, I would suggest, YOUR NAME as your brand name.
You may then choose a product that would best fit in your every post, don’t forget to use your referral or affiliate link, lol.
Some say, make it a part of a process. Keyword linking describes it best.
And, here’s where you can apply for amazon affiliate, domain name, and a web hosting provider:
What if you’re lazy to write?
Best advice would be “Outsource your business!”
How much money are you willing to pay for writers to write for you? There are plenty of writers at the following outsourcing site…
… willing to deliver you the best article you want them to write.
Well, if you’re thrifty like me, then help your self, go write the best content you have in mind.
Someone said, a friend, “make a good content”.
Here’s a book Everybody Writes: Your Go-To Guide to Creating Ridiculously Good Content you might want to also learn from.
And one more thing, I heard someone said, “if you’re not willing to invest money, time and effort, in any business, then you’re going nowhere.”
I ask myself “What if I don’t have money?”
Another article answered, “Do you have old books you’re no longer using nor reading? How about old computers, other gadgets? Sell them all.”
See that? It’s funny. Internet is awesome, I can see teamwork in it. Which brings me to this question “How do you launch your articles?”
- Social Medias, Paid Advertisements are some of the few tools to show off your best articles ever.
“Traffic in Philippines makes you get frustrated, but traffic online makes you money.” Ha-ha-ha.
Anyways, #2 Invest in Stocks, Bonds, Securities
If you have extra extra money, like super extra, go ahead invest. Choose the ones that are in demand, that without it, the world will cry out loud.
* oil companies for example. Heh!
Others invest in Penny stocks, because it’s still affordable. Then it would be like heaven when its market booms like super high. So if it will go bankrupt, then I think it’s not going to be that hard to digest, you just bought it cheap anyway. lol.
A piece of advice I received from a friend, he said, “When you invest in the future in shares of stocks, remember to choose those with DIVIDEND per share.”
Ouch, I’m nose bleeding. “Here’s a link to Investopedia, let them take care of your investing terminologies.”
And then he added, “in trading, it’s how much you keep that matters, the most.”
All right, #3 Freelancing
Learn a skill.
Comments and recommendations would be highly appreciated.
P.S. This article utilizes affiliate links. The affiliate will earn a small commission for every valid buy-in made through one of her affiliate links.
