How To Make Money Online Selling Products On the Internet Like A Professional Marketer!
In other words you can say I will show you how to make money online promoting products especially if you don’t have your own product to sell.
Really, in this post, I will show you the best strategies to make money online that most of the Online Industry Leaders, Experts and Advanced Marketers apply to promote products.
Yes, with the strategies which I am going to tell you below in the post, not only you can make money online but you will also establish yourself as an Authority and Brand in the market.
Even with the strategies which I am going to tell you, not only you can promote other people’s product making money online but in future you can also promote your own offer so you can make money on the internet.
So are you ready to know how to make money online selling other people’s products on the internet like a Professional Marketer?
If so then today’s post is for YOU because I’m going to talk about Affiliate Marketing.
So first let I explain you about what is affiliate marketing in short.
What is Affiliate Marketing?
Affiliate marketing is basically where you go out and you promote other people’s product or other company’s product for a Commission.
For example, if you want to promote physical product something like HD Canon Camera.
Then just to promote HD Canon Camera, you can go to Amazon and become their Amazon associate or Amazon Affiliate by filling up their Affiliate program.
Ok if you don’t know how to apply Amazon Affiliate Program then let I tell you in short.
How To Apply Amazon Affiliate Program?
First go to Google and type Amazon Affiliate Program in search bar and hit button i.e. Google Search. Below you can see the screenshot.
Then on the Google search page results you will find the link to become Amazon Affiliate. Below you can see the screenshot.
Point to note: You can also apply for Amazon Associate or Affiliate Program by going directly to the Amazon website and at the end of Amazon website, you will find the link which says Become an Affiliate. Below you can see the screenshot.
So whether you go from Google or you go directly to the link on Amazon Website which says Become an Affiliate it doesn’t matter.
In both cases you will be taken to the same page where by clicking on the button which says Join Now for Free, you can apply for Amazon Affiliate Program to promote any of the Amazon products. See below the screenshot.
So as and when you click the button Join Now for Free, then on the next page fill out the form by creating your account with Amazon step by step. Below you can see the screenshot.
Point to note that after creating account with Amazon you will be taken to Amazon Affiliate Program form where you have to submit details right from your address, website address, nature of content on your website, mode of traffic you send etc.
So fill out the information accurately in the affiliate program form and then finally you will be asked to verify your account through your mobile number.
And when you complete this whole process then after going through your affiliate program application if they find you fit for their affiliate program to promote the products then you will be approved to their affiliate program.
Ok now you know how to apply for Amazon Affiliate Program.
Let’s move further….
Now after becoming Amazon Associate or Amazon Affiliate, you then inside your affiliate dashboard of Amazon, pick a HD Canon Camera to promote.
And you give a review about this HD Canon camera by writing on your Blog.
Or you give a review by recording a review video and then post it to your YouTube Channel.
Then at the end of your blog post or in the description of YouTube video you suggest to your readers or viewers that “Hey, if you like my review then you can go to Amazon and buy this HD Camera through my affiliate link here.”
Below you can see the screenshot how amazon affiliate link looks like.
And when somebody clicks on the affiliate link after reading or watching your review post then he or she will be taken to Amazon website.
See live example of this how it works if you click on this link Buy HD Canon Camera on Amazon here.
And for every valid purchase of HD Canon Camera made through your affiliate link at Amazon you get upto 12% affiliate commission.
So to this we call affiliate marketing where we promote other people’s or company’s product for a commission. Ok!
Point to Note: In affiliate marketing, not only you can promote Amazon Products but you can also promote any product or service of any company.
But there must be an Affiliate Program of that product or service of any company only then you will be able to promote the products.
Let I tell you……
How to find Affiliate Program of any product or service to promote?
For example, if you want to find the affiliate program related to “Weight Loss”.
So what you can do….
Go to Google and type “Weight Loss + Affiliate Program”. See below the screenshot.
And on the Google results page you will find so many affiliate programs that are related to Weight Loss. Below you can see the screenshot.
And to promote Weight loss product, click any of the link shown in Google results page and then go to their website and register yourself with their affiliate program.
Further if you want to sell digital products in any niche then you can create account with Clickbank which is a largest place for digital products to sell product as an Vendor or to promote product as an affiliate.
Yes, to promote Digital Products for making money online, the process is the same which I have already told you above.
Now look normally affiliate marketing is presented as the easy way to get into internet marketing.
And to some extent I think that’s true because you don’t have to have your own product.
You don’t really have to have your own website.
You just need to get people from point A to point B.
And that seems easy, right?
But my friend you need to understand how to do an affiliate marketing the right way.
First what you can do is…..
Build Audience with Trust!
If you seriously want to make money online promoting products like a Professional Marketer in affiliate marketing then first you have to focus on building an audience with trust.
And the reason why an audience is so essential to affiliate marketing is because of two reasons.
One you have influence over them.
Mean to say, they’re gonna believe what you’re saying over somebody else.
And second you’re gonna have their attention and focus on your affiliate product or company you’re promoting.
So, you have to be doing something unique and having your own audience that you have influence over is huge.
For example, if you’re a really popular blogger and when you suggest some type of software being an affiliate of software company.
Then obviously your readers are going to be more inclined to buy that software rather buying other company’s software.
So that’s the benefit of building an audience that you get in affiliate marketing.
Take it another way, you might have seen a lot of people who are successful in online internet marketing making lots of money.
So, have you ever thought why they are so successful making money on the internet?
Answer is simple….
They first focus on creating a huge audience with trust.
And then they send their readers or viewers or audience to the Company’s offer or their affiliate offer.
And on the other hand if you don’t have that audience with trust then it’s extremely hard to get a lot of traction in affiliate marketing.
So, this is the first point that you have to understand really-2 well.
Now you might be thinking………
How to build an Audience with Trust?
So the first way that you need is….
Build an audience with quality content.
Now again you might be wondering…..
How to build audience with quality content?
So first thing you can do is….
Choose your platform of your choice where you can share your quality content.
So here again question comes to mind……
Let I tell you the 5 platforms that you can choose to share your quality content for building your audience with trust.
If you love writing then start blogging in your subject, niche or expertise and write your quality content on your blog.
You can see an example of my blog.
I simply write content that are full of information and solving the problems of my readers.
Take another example of this….
As in affiliate marketing there are people who don’t know what is solo ads in affiliate marketing.
So, when you go to Google and type “what is solo ads in affiliate marketing”.
Then in Google search results, you will find so many bloggers like me who are giving information by writing the blog post on “what is solo ads in affiliate marketing”. Below you can see the screenshot.
So as and when you find the great content on “what is solo ads in affiliate marketing” in one of blog posts of any blogger that’s full of great information and solving the problems.
Then tell me what’s the first impression that goes to your mind about such blog post as well as the writer of that blog post?
Of course, the first impression goes of Trust.
Second, it establishes an impression of an Authority in the mind of readers about blog post writer as well as blog.
And at the end, such impressions make that blog or blog writer a brand with huge audience (readers).
So tell me, what you think they (bloggers) are doing by writing valuable blog posts on their blog?
They are doing content marketing building their audience with trust through their platform i.e. Blog.
2. YouTube Channel
Second platform I would highly recommend you to choose for building your audience with trust while sharing your content is YouTube.
Because according to Alexa, YouTube is the second largest most popular website in the world.
And without any doubt YouTube is the second largest search engine in the world after Google.
Even according to Fortuneloards, YouTube gets over 30 million visitors per day.
So here you can see why it is so important to make YouTube as one of your platform to build your audience sharing your quality content.
I don’t know whether you know this fact or not but I would say thattraffic is the life blood of any online or offline business.Click To Tweet
Without traffic there is No business.
So, supporting this fact my mentor Russell Brunson in one of his book i.e. DotComSecrets says, “Look where is your target market congregating?”
“Where do they hang out online?”
“Where do they spend their time?”
And keeping that in mind, I would say go where there is traffic and build audience with trust by sharing your quality content.
So, yes, YouTube is a big platform where you can go and build your audience and make money by promoting your affiliate offer or your own offer.
So, I would highly recommend you, if you love shooting video and you don’t have any fear to be on camera then start your YouTube Channel.
And upload your video on your YouTube Channel with great content providing great solutions to the problems of your viewers.
Yes, in your video you can talk about your expertise in your subject or niche.
Further, you might have noticed somewhere that YouTube is being used very effectively by big gurus in the internet marketing as one of the platforms to build audience by sharing the quality content.
For example if you look at Tai Lopez who is one of the Social Media Influencer, Consultant, Investor, Leader and Entrepreneur.
And when you go to Tai Lopez’s YouTube Channel on YouTube then you will find he has over 1.1 million Subscribers.
So here questions come…..
What Tai Lopez does and how he has built over 1.1 million Subscribers on YouTube?
Answer is simple…..
He gets people into a massive audience by providing great content on his YouTube Channel.
Then he basically promotes other people’s products a lot of time including his own offer.
Furthermore, you might have also seen the YouTube Channels of other top Marketers, Social Media Influencers, Entrepreneurs like Grant Cardone, Garry Vanerchuck, Alex Backer, Anik Single, Russell Brunson, Tony Robbins etc.,
What they all do on their YouTube Channel?
They build their audience by providing immense amount of value to their viewers, subscribers and followers through their own YouTube Channel.
And at the end, they promote their own offer or somebody else’s product with whom they’re associated with or they’re JV (joint Venture) partner.
So, eventually they all are creating audiences with trust via quality content they create.
Content that attracts people that are interested in a subject.
And interestingly they’re able to attract these people mostly for FREE using YouTube.
Isn’t it GREAT?
So yes, if you have great content to share then go share on YouTube and build your audience.
As you know Facebook is the third largest social media website in the world where people hangout almost all day long.
So yes without any doubt you can choose Facebook as one of your platform to build your audience by sharing valuable contents.
Actually, let I tell you……
How you can build your audience on Facebook?
You can create your own Facebook Groups or Facebook page related to your niche, subject, expertise or business.
Then in your Facebook Groups or Facebook Page start sharing your valuable contents solving your audience problems.
So, that way when people will find your content of great value then they will follow you and ultimately you will be able to build your audience with trust.
Furthermore you can also do 5 to 10 minutes short Facebook Live video to build your audience or followers by providing great content.
So yes without any doubt, Facebook can by your one of the platforms to build your audience.
Important To Note: Don’t put your affiliate link in the Facebook Group or Facebook page directly because Facebook doesn’t like this and most probably you will be banned.
Instead what you can do is bring people to your email subscribers list and then promote your affiliate offers or your own offer by sending emails to your subscriber having your affiliate link.
Or you can use your custom domain that somewhere matches to your affiliate product rather using your bare ugly affiliate link in the Facebook Group or Facebook page.
For example as I am promoting Expert Secrets Book by Russell Brunson, so instead putting my ugly looking affiliate in the Facebook Group or Facebook page, I can send people (audience) to my custom domain i.e. afunnelexpert.com which looks nice and professional way to promote any affiliate product.
Below you can see the screenshot of my ugly looking affiliate link of Expert Secrets Book.
As I have already said go where there is traffic.
So keeping that in mind Instagram is another largest social media platform owned by Facebook where you can build your audience sharing your valuable contents.
Now again you might be thinking…..
Because according to Instagram they have over 800 million monthly active users.
So don’t you think it’s a great opportunity to build your audience on Instagram where you can share your content?
Of course, Yes!
So what are you waiting for?
Go and share your content or stories on Instagram and build audience.
Point to Note: On Instagram you can’t promote your affiliate offer directly posting your affiliate link.
But what you can do is just to promote your own offer or affiliate offer put your link in the bio section of your profile inside the Instagram.
To build your audience you can also start your own Podcast.
If you don’t know what is Podcast, then let I tell you in short….
What is Podcast?
Simply Podcast is like a Radio show.
As on Radio Show you listen to your favourite songs, latest gossips, latest interviews of Leaders, Experts, and Influencers.
So in the same way, Podcast is a place where you can share your own valuable content on a specific topic or subject or niche or business in the audio format on the internet with a focused audience.
In other words you can say podcast is a place where you share a series of episodes on a specific topic such as digital marketing, email marketing, self- help, weight loss management or any other topic you like on a regular basis.
Yes, one more thing at your podcast your contents are in the digital format or audio format that can be downloaded and listened to either on a computer or an Mp3 player or an IPod.
So if you’re comfortable with audio and love to speak sharing your expertise, knowledge or valuable contents then you can start your own podcast to build your audience.
And yes, if you want to know more about Podcast then you can read this post by Lifehacker on How to Start Your Own Podcast.
So these are the 5 platforms that you can choose to build your audience sharing your free quality contents that are full of value.
Yes, here is my one recommendation to you, especially when you’re beginner just pick one platform in which you’re comfortable.
And after building huge audience at one platform then go to other platform to build your audience.
Now again questions arise to mind…..
How to sell or promote product after building audience?
So here I am not going to puzzle you by showing all the ways to promote any affiliate product to make money online.
I would only tell you my single best way to sell or promote any product whether its someone else’s product or your own product so you can make money online.
And this is……
Build Email List to Sell or Promote Product!
Yes, building email list is very-2 important step that you must focus on if you’re really-2 serious about to make money online.
Even I would say this is the professional way or practice that most Industry’s Leaders, Experts and Advanced Marketers apply to sell or promote offers.
They first build their audience with trust and second they build their email list and then finally they sell or promote their offer whether their own product or affiliate product.
So, here you might be thinking……
Why to build email list to sell or promote affiliate product?
Let I tell you why to build email list to promote any affiliate offer and why building email list is important?
Because you might have noticed that when you share your content at your platform (Blog or YouTube Channel) then after reading or watching your content they go before seeing your affiliate offer.
Now tell me how will you make money from the people who have left your platform after reading or watching your content?
Answer is simple…..
You can’t make money from the people who have left your platform unless they come again to see your affiliate offer or affiliate product.
So keeping that in mind you build email list by collecting the information especially email address of visitors through an Autoresponder at your platform.
And by building email list you can offer them your affiliate offer to make money by sending emails any time you want despite leaving your platform.
So that’s why you build your email list and that’s why building email list is important to you.
Important to Note: An Autoresponder is a piece of software through which you can collect email addresses of your visitors.
And with the help of Autoresponder you can send automated pre-written email messages on alternate day basis or regular day basis containing your affiliate offer or your own offer.
Yes, by building email list there are other benefits that you can get.
What are the other benefits of building email list?
Let I tell you what other benefits you can get by building your own email list and how you can monetize your email list.
1. Promote or Sell Your Own Offer
Yes, without any doubt by building your email list not only you can promote affiliate offer but you can also promote or sell your own offer to your email list in future so you can make money online on the internet.
2. Promote Affiliate Webinar
This is another way you can really go out and monetize your email list with affiliate webinars.
Basically these are the webinars that offer some kind of training in a particular niche giving the solution to a problem in the market.
And after the webinar training, you’re offered with a high priced product normally it’s like $997 to $2000 bucks.
Below you can see an example of this type of Webinar training that you can offer to your email list.
Actually it’s a webinar training where Russell Brunson shows you A Weird Niche Funnel That’s Currently Making Me $17,947 Per Day… and how YOU can ETHICALLY knock it off in less than 10 minutes!”
So overall by promoting this type of affiliate webinar training having high priced offer at the backend gives you more profit with high commission.
3. Promote Product Launch Offer
By building your email list, you can promote offers like that are going to launch in the market.
So what a launch is….
It’s essentially where a person (Marketer) going to launch a product and it’s only open for a week or two weeks with a special price or discount.
For example, you can go to Jvzoo and there you will find other marketers who are going to launch their product.
And you can pick one of the product launches of your interest and you can promote that product launch to your email list to make money.
4. Retarget the Email List
You can retarget your email list to promote your offer if they abandon your cart or ignore your offer or leave your platform without buying your affiliate offer.
But keep that in mind that this is a little bit more advanced but you can use retargeting to hit your email list to promote launches.
And because something is closing down very quickly people are going to be very inclined to buy that product.
Important to Note: Retargeting is a kind of marketing tactic where whenever you go to any website or blog or click on the ad placed on the website or blog then a string of small code i.e. Java Script or HTML or cookie or pixel is placed on your browser.
Or you can say, you are tag with the cookie and due to this reason wherever you go on the web whether it’s a Facebook or any other website on Google, you are retargeted with the similar ad or with some other ad having new offers or discount.
5. You save Money
By building your email list, you save money.
For example if you build your email list through paid ads on Google or Facebook.
And once any visitors come in your email list then for that particular visitors you don’t have to pay again as you have already paid.
So that way you save money and you can promote your offer to the same visitors or subscribers for a long time unless they unsubscribe from your email list.
Now you know why it is so important to build a list and what benefits you can get by building your email list and how you can monetize your email list.
Now you might be wondering again………
How to build email list?
Let I tell you how you can build your email list in a simple way.
Offer Free Lead Magnet!
So here on your platform you can offer them (your audience) free lead magnet (free offer) to capture email address at the end of your content so you can build email list.
For example, when you share your free valuable content on YouTube then in the description area of your YouTube video you can put a link offering lead magnet (Free Offer) to collect the email address.
Below you can see an example of Tail Lopez that how he offers Lead Magnet by putting the link in the description section under the video.
Or at the side bar of your blog or through pop up form or at the end of your post, you can offer your free lead magnet to collect email address.
Below you can see an example of Pop Up form where I am offering lead magnet (Free Masterclass training) on my blog to collect the email address.
So here the main purpose is to get people from your Platform such as Blot, YouTube channel, Instagram, Facebook, and Podcast to your email list so you can promote your affiliate product to make money online.
Important to Note: A lead magnet can be in the form of Free Report, Cheat Sheet, Mindmap, CD, DVD, Video Training, Check List etc. that you offer for Free in exchange of email address of your audience or visitors on your platform.
So, my suggestion right now is to go and create quality content and share on your platform whether it’s your Blog, YouTube, Facebook, Instagram and Podcast.
Create content that attracts people for free.
Create content that solves the problem of your audience.
And get them into your audience creating trust and brand.
Take them from your platform to email subscriber list and then promote your affiliate offer or affiliate product or your own offer by providing value and building relationship with your email list.
So overall its all about building Trust. People buy from the person who they trust. Got it!
Really if you promote the product in the way which I told you above step by step then surely you will establish yourself as an Authority and brand with trust in the market and then it will be easy to promote or sell any product or service to make money on the internet.
