So what do affiliate marketers promote? Boy oh boy, what don’t they promote is a better question. Affiliate marketing ideas are becoming more and more abundant as our society is becoming more and more comfortable ordering from the web. I know for me it’s so much easier to just go online and place an order and let it be delivered to me rather than go out and actually shop for it. Time saving and convenient is what I am talking about. I love shopping online. The wonderful thing about being an affiliate marketer is that you get paid a generous commission if people makes these online purchases through you Most of the programs I am active in pay anywhere from 40% to 75%. That is not peanuts and out in the real world, this generous commission structure is almost unheard of.
If you have something that interests you or something that you love or are passionate about, chances are good you can make money by being an affiliate marketer and just sharing your knowledge. At the end of this blog post is a banner. It’s a sign up for a great affiliate program that I participate in. It’s in health care such as anti aging and nutrition supplements. This is just one affiliate program out of thousand in the health industry!
Most of you know already about clickbank! I get a lot of money through that site. There is a rotating banner up there in the right corner of this site that promotes two products automatically for me through clickbank via this this web theme I use here called Socrates. You will also see a link to this Socrates, which is what controls the layout of this site. If you were to purchase through my banner, I would make money. How cool is that.
Some think affiliate marketing is just about promoting how to make money online. That is just a small part of what affiliate marketing is about. I have a friend who makes thousands of dollars on chocolate. Yes she has a website around chocolate and has found a vendor that pays her a commission for selling chocolate via the world wide web.
There is this really cool affiliate center called ShareaSale that has some awesome diverse and interesting products. This site has opportunites for those who love horses to gardening to fashion and many many other things that you may find resonates with you! Once signed up to this site, you will have to register for the different affiliate programs. These vendors give you so many tools to make affiliate marketing easy.
Commission Junction is another big player in affiliate marketing. Ever heard of Match.com? The biggest dating site around. They are hosted at Commission Junction and if a member were to click on your banner on your site and join, you get paid! Commission Junction has thousands and thousands of great affiliate marketing ideas, and not just in the dating category. Browse through and I would bet something there will get your attention!
Now the search for a product that resonates with you as an affiliate marketer does not stop there. Some of my best affiliate marketing finds have been simply by doing a Google search for the product that I am interested in with the word affiliate behind it. There are a lot of independent vendors out there with some great products. One of my best performing programs that I support is one I found this way.
Also if you are on a website that has something that you like, scroll to the bottom fine print. Often you will find that there is a tab there that says “affiliates” and this is where you can sign up an start getting paid. Did you know that Best Buy and Walmart have affiliate programs? This leads me to the giant in affiliate Marketing……
Amazon. Yes anything under the sun is on Amazon. Some affiliate marketers us Amazon alone to built their business and earn a substantial income doing so. Amazon doesn’t pay that high of a commission, but still with enough volume, you can earn a lot of money. I know a woman who makes at least 10K per month on Amazon alone. They have great tools also.
Now this host would not be complete if I did not mention Pajama Affiliates. I too have an affiliate program that pays 50% commissions to those that join us in our affiliate marketing adventure. I am also creating my own product currently about healing through heart break. I will keep you posted when it is ready, but it will be hosted on my other site, lovegirltalk.com.
So in summary, there are thousand and thousand of programs for affiliate marketers to promote and it’s growing every day. If you have a passion and like to write, I can show you how with Pajama Affiliates!
