Making money in affiliate marketing is easy if you know how.
The easiest way to do this is to set goals and then work out a plan of attack.
Your ability to set goals and then implement them will be a HUGE factor in your success online.
The reason for this is that it is very hard to “make money quickly” online, but once you figure out how to get the ball rolling, then you will be able to build upon your momentum and like a snowball….. success will surely come.
The Top 4 Ways to Make Money In Affiliate Marketing Are”
1) Pay Per Click (PPC)
This is when a website visitor clicks on one of your links and you earn a commission on that.
This is a VERY popular method of affiliate marketing.
You (the marketer) recommend a product/service and your website visitor clicks on one of your special links and then they go on to purchase the product. You earn a commission on that completed sale.
This is fairly common in Local Marketing. An example would be the local Real Estate Agent or the local Accountant pays you a referral fee if someone fills in a form and requests an appointment with them. You would then get paid for each form that was filled out and every meeting that took place.
4) Selling Advertising On Your Site
This is probably one of the most popular methods of affiliate marketing going around.
Google Adwords and Bing Ads are two market leaders in this space. Here they will give you a small tracking code to place on your site to record the number of times a visitor looks at advertising on your site. They usually pay you “pennies on the dollar” for each website visitor.
Another approach is to sell advertising directly on your site. Usually the fee that you charge will be based on Customer Per Thousand or (CPM) of your total website visitors.
Goal #1 $10 Per Day
When you first start out making money in affiliate marketing, aim for a humble $10 per day.
This may not seem like a lot of money to many people, but $300 per month is nothing to sneeze at either.
When you figure out a plan of attack to earn $10 per month consistently, then that proves that you have a plan.
Your plan can then be tweaked and improved to make it sustainable. When you figure out how to make a consistent $10 per day, your business is taking flight!
Please understand that you have to figure out a consistent way to make the “small bucks” before you can make the “big bucks”.
Goal #2 $33 Per Day
After you have achieved goal #1, your next goal to achieve should be $33 per day.
$33 dollars per day does not sound like a lot does sit? But that’s $990 per month. What would an extra $990 per month do for you?
A car payment? Help with your mortgage or rent? Vacation money? Bill payments?
It does not take a lot to make a HUGE difference in your life.
