These 6 affiliate marketing tips will help you to be successful and earn an income stream that goes on far into the future.
First let’s have some little definition of the word affiliate and affiliate marketing.


What is affiliate?
A person or organization officially attached to a larger body.

What is affiliate marketing?
Affiliate marketing is the process of earning a commission by promoting other people’s (or company’s) products. You find a product you like, promote it to others, and earn a piece of the profit for each sale that you make.


1. Join only affiliate programs that you feel you can trust. Get to know the provider before you decide to offer their products. Do your research, find the best relevant product, and you’ll enjoy a much higher conversion rate, which means more money for you. Write a personal review backing the product to help promote it. When you believe in the product, writing the review won’t be that difficult and your visitors who trust you will take that into consideration and are more likely to buy.

2. You need to spend time focusing on building your traffic to your website. That means you need to do your SEO work so that your site ranks well organically in the search engines. Make sure you are following the rules outlined by the affiliate and do not breach any trademark policies that merchant has put into place. For example, many companies won’t let you bid on their brand name.

3. Make sure your website has some great content. Customers are not coming to your site to see ads. They are there to find out information about the product and to look at recommendations. Use both text links and banners and see which work the best on your website. Make your review promotional.

4. Make sure you are honest and disclose the affiliate relationship. This is required by the FTC – you must disclose that you are being compensated when your traffic clicks on an ad link and makes a purchase.

5. Take the time to do plenty of testing to see what works on your site and what doesn’t. Don’t be afraid to try to promote your product using different venues and programs. For example, try Facebook ads and Google ads to see which work best. Try different banner placements to see which works best. Try different ads. You get the idea.

6. Take the time to get to know your affiliate manager. They are there to help you and should be happy to review your site and give your some feedback about what you can do differently to be more successful.

7. Be patient. It takes time to grow your affiliate marketing business. But once it is established and running smoothly you will be able to enjoy the residual income it generates.

And there you have it!

  1. Great tips – I'm getting ready to dive into the wonderful world of affiliate marketing and know shockingly little about it. this was super helpful!

  2. Those are pretty great tips especially if it's your first time joining an affiliate program. There are so many to choose from and reading feedback first is a nice way to learn more about the company. Aside from that, if you want to attract the big ones, gaining traffic and a following on your site is important as well!

  3. Other affiliate programs normally deal with having a website and placing ads and because not every one have a website many has been deprived the privilege of online earning.
    Even many referral programs e.g kaymu also needs websites for smooth job done, but there is a referral program which allows you to share your links on social medias even without having a blog.:
    one of the things you must know is that the traffic you receive to your Facebook/twitter profiles, pages and group daily should be able to cover that of a newly created or less trafficked websites.
    I have a website like you can see but my Facebook group and page has been my greatest area of my advert…. Now you don't have to be worried about the fact that you don't have a website and as such you shouldn't be counted among those who can earn income online
    COOLNAIRA like the name implies is the way you can earn cool naira just sharing of links. I know reading the above line of sentences you are confronted with the thought of online scamming. (you shouldn't be)
    If you visit a referral program that do scam you should know from their services. just imagine fast2earn promising its members 25$ for sign up bonus is that not obvious for you to know they are scammm……it never ends there they also go ahead to giving you about 10$ for every referral sign up. at least you should ask yourself questions "What is the job am offering ?
    what is there gain and what is my gain?
    answering the above questions will make you know the legit or scam referral programs and it will also make you know that coolnaira have a gain while you also have your gain that's business for you!-the equation must be balanced.
    If I visit a referral program promising to make me rich overnight without rendering any service I won't carry out their offers cus it is a sign of online scammers who promise everything fast and easy just to charm you to register .
