Affiliate Marketing For Websites
For Small Businesses or Individuals Wanting to Work at Home
As a website owner you are not just looking to drive traffic to your business, but what about other ways your website can actually earn you money?
All brick and mortar businesses today need a website for foot traffic, keeping people coming to their business, why not learn to add to the income you can create using affiliate marketing?
After all, what better way to add to the bottom line of profit than to sell products you are using in your brick and mortar business online?
You can do this in two separate ways, either by drop shipping them directly from your location or by using an affiliate program with places like Amazon, Wal-Mart, Target, Lowe’s, etc.
Then you will be paid a commission for the products sold through your brick and mortar website for what visitors to the website purchase. Commissions can run from 1% to 75% depending on the products or services offered on the website.
As a business owner, I cannot think of another way to monetize your website so effectively and efficiently by adding additional products you are familiar with to your website. This can be done simply by adding images and affiliate links for your customers to use.

Why Use Affiliate Marketing?
Thing is with affiliate marketing you do not need to have a product or service to sell directly. Meaning you are not going to have to buy and stock inventory. If your business already has a product this should already be available on your website.
Adding more products or services under affiliate marketing will increase your profits by providing solutions to other things people are looking for.
This is simply advantageous to any brick and mortar business considering you already have some trust established with your customers. They will feel more comfortable buying a product or service you recommend.
By using products and services that fit with your business model which you do not carry in stock look at all the extra profits you are missing out on.
Affiliate Marketing is estimated to exceed 6.8 Billion by the year 2020, considering a quarter of this year is gone already then jumping on board right now is a great time.

How Does This Work?
As a small business, you can target products or services related to your business rather than being in competition with other businesses.
If you do not already have a website then I suggest you get started today building one. You can use the link above to build your own website with the training provided or you can contact me at the end of this article by email to discuss other options I can offer you.
Just for example let’s say you own a small beauty shop. Having a website where people can leave a review of your products and services can seriously benefit your business.
Setting up affiliate marketing on your business website can earn you commissions on products that you recommend to your customers. When they purchase these from your website you will make a commission for what they buy.
This can work for any business model you can think of. Individuals can set up a website where they can offer product and service reviews for anything you can think of, the possibilities are endless.
Think of how many people use the internet on a daily basis. This is over 4 Billion, having just one website can make it possible for you to earn four to five figures a month.
However, there is work to be done prior to this happening. If you are not willing to put in the effort to work on a website then you are never going to see any profits in return.
Is Affiliate Marketing Hard?
No, the hard part is waiting for the search engines to recognize you as a serious author creating keyword rich high-quality content consistently posting it to your website.
This part takes time. Anyone who does NOT want to work, dedicate the time, commitment, determination, and patience is going to become discouraged and quit.
Two points required for you to get started are: First, selecting the relevant product or service to promote on your website and targeted traffic for your website (in other words what audience are you targeting).
Second, selecting the proper audience to target is considered a niche. Make sure you know enough about what you are selecting to be able to produce enough high-quality content for a website. (Usually around 100 to 200 posts).
You will need enough knowledge about the product or service plus the skills and hard work it will take to convince your audience your product or service is the best solution they can find.
Even though these things seem like you could complete them with a couple of simple articles, it still takes time to research your product or service to know if you are going to rank well in the search engines with them.
Following are all things you are not ever going to have to do with Affiliate Marketing. The product or service owners pay you a commission and then handles the product maintenance and after-sales services.
- Service/Product Maintenance and Upgrades
- After-Sales Services
- Product Delivery
- Product Guarantees
- Customer Support
- Taxes, and even more I am probably not even thinking about right now.
That is what makes affiliate marketing relatively easy to do. But it’s even more challenging due to the changing consumer behavior and your competition.
What exactly do I mean by this? Think about people who are looking to get away one week their searches might include Las Vegas, but then the following week other searchers are looking to go to Cancun, Mexico.
Keeping up with the competition and consumers is what makes you successful in the affiliate marketing world. Knowing how to do the keyword research finding the correct search terms people are looking for.
Why Should I Do Affiliate Marketing?
Before this, I spoke mostly to the brick and mortar businesses about using affiliate marketing on their websites. Now I would like to address why as an individual you should get involved with affiliate marketing.
There is no limit to how many people can get into affiliate marketing that is one of the reasons I started in the online business myself. Second, there is never a boss around looking over your shoulder telling you what to do or how to do it.
Well, to be honest, the benefits outweigh the negatives in my book that and to give you a complete list would take me some time to get them all down here on this page.
Working at home running my own online business is something that always intrigued me too bad I never got started earlier. The time I wasted prior to beginning could have seriously made it possible for me to retire years ago.
Now for “Why Should I Do Affiliate Marketing?” Answer: “Because it works!” The problem is as humans we are programmed to want instant gratification for the work we put into something. Affiliate Marketing takes time and work.
Think about why you go to work every day? Sure you get a paycheck at the end of the week, two weeks, or month depending on how your employer pays you. But are you ever going to get rich working for someone else?
Not hardly, so why not start right now today to break those chains from the 9 to 5 grind? No, I am not telling you to quit your job but beginning now to start your own online business in affiliate marketing then in a couple of years you could!
What Do I Have To Do?
Traditional Affiliate Marketing is done by writing product/service reviews that contain the product/service features, uses, case studies, ratings, and your personal opinions of them.
Product/service review posts can account for massive earnings if you select the proper ones to write a review about that is where keyword research comes in for creating content for your website.
You can use affiliate banners on your website to promote other products/services but know that overusing these will cause an audience to leave your website if it becomes a banner blindness model.
It is best to always rotate the advertisements but even a better technique that I have found is to place them appropriately not to cause this type of effect. Using only a few key advertisements such as banners can mean more commissions.
Affiliate links can be attached to keywords in your content doing this manually is always better than trying to use a plugin letting it take over making your article look messy plus adding too many.
Controlling the number of affiliate links you use per page is important this can affect how Google and the other major search engines view your content. Another point is this can be bad for ranking your content as well.
I must apologize if I made this seem more difficult than it really is. Getting carried away when I discuss affiliate marketing is just part of what happens considering this is what I do every day.
Simply put you are going to need to set up a website, select a niche, write content, keep writing content, add it to the website, and wait for the search engines to find it. This is the hard part waiting for the search engines LOL
Sure you can make all the excuses in the world about you are not a writer or any other ones you can think of, heard them all before. Actually, I used most of them before (laughing at myself right now).
But if you are tired of working a job and want something better in life, affiliate marketing is simply easy to do and cost effective for starting your own business. Who do you know can start a business for less than a cup of coffee a day?
Maybe you are a stay at home mom/dad, a retiree, ex-military, student, or even disabled anyone can do this young or old. Even if you are working just as long as you can commit to at least 2 hours a day then you can do this!
