Earning money with affiliate marketing in 2018 ($100k/year)
From $20,000 in 2016 to $100,000 in 2017, I went from having to drop my web design/SEO customers and do full-time affiliate marketing/blogging. 90 percent of my (passive) affiliate revenue comes from SiteGround, a host that gave me Affiliate of the Month in July 2017 when I earned $9,000 in a single monthly earn.
I' ve kept hitting numbers like this ever since - the screenshots below are from March 2018, when I earned $14.5,000 in a single monthly period (with SiteGround only). What is Affiliate Marketing? When they buy something through your affiliate links, you get a sales fee. Other kinds of affiliate programmes exist, but this is the most frequent - and this is what I do.
I' ve been spending a lot of my life gathering proof of how they were number one in 10 different Facebook surveys, Facebook calls that help and how migration to them can help increase page uptime. So I took a confidence jump and let my customers drop to see if blogging/affiliate marketing was possible. So I was good at website performance tuning and knew that web site hosted was the #1 number.
Some research showed that SiteGround was number 1 in most surveys on facebook and had a good record with high affiliate fees. Thus I have written a tutorial about the website performance.... how to set up WordPress web page plug-in, web page hostings and other performance related themes. Normally I would say at the end of a post: "Oh, here's why you should go to SiteGround" with proofs of why they're the best... surveys, sweets, loading enhancements, etc.
The reason I have written this manual is because I'm really thrilled to help folks do the same thing - without the BS. Add an HTML list of HTML articles to EVERY item (encourages longer browsing), organisation and even a possibility to get Google jumps with designated anchor. I started my professional life as follows: Online-Marketing > Webdesign > WorldPress Webdesign > PagePress Webdesign > PagePress WebPress Interactive > PagePress Performance Tuning.
I' m going into affiliate marketing now. As I was doing WordPress performance tuning, I realized that many folks needed it, but very few folks delivered it (there was a shortage) (and there was a shortage of service and Tutorials when I did Google research). Also I knew that web site #1 rate was website performance rate #1 and these businesses were paying up to $200/sales.
Hosted services are a highly competetive environment, but I was seduced by the commission and the shortage of offers. Expanding my sign-up and blogging experience, I began to write about web sites, web sites, web sites, web sites, web sites, web sites, web sites, web sites, web hosting, cache plugins, and other relevant topics... while recommending SiteGround in every tutorial. Every one of the tutorials was extremely detailled and many folks found them useful - many generating 100 visitors/day as the great contents brought them to a high rank.
As soon as I have found my alcove (WordPress Velocity Optimization), a sound web site with a highly professional affiliate programme (SiteGround) and Tutorials on subjects that would help my alcove humans (and maybe want to switch hosts), that's what brought me to $100,000. As soon as you find a highly demanded alcove, little offer (do your Google research) and a serious partner who offers beautiful commissions...and you have the willingness to wait for your money to pay while you create your asset (I'm referring to content), I urge you to take the plunge.
A Stage - you receive a fee when a purchase is made through your affiliate links. Dual levels - get a fee when you recommend other partners and they begin to sell (think multi-level marketing). One example is the WP Engine application, where I tell my reader about their WordPress web site hosted, they begin to make deals, and I make $50/sales from each deal they make.
Clembing Tiers - higher fees when you generate more revenue. Repetitive fees - usually for subscriptions... You earn continuous fees as long as individuals are logged in. AWeber' s e-mail marketing does this. Page-wide referral fees - get a referral fee no matter what your affiliate's website is selling. The Amazon affiliate programme does this.
Make sure you set up your analyses so that they can understand this and have a sound writing arrangement with your partner. Cookie - period of period after folks have clicked on your affiliate links, you get a provision when a sales is made. Normally 30-90 day, but should not be a dealer breaking when selecting an affiliate.
Custom Affiliate Program - here you register via their website. Affiliate Marketplaces - ShareASale and ClickBank have tens of thousands dealers to select from. It' s great to log in in one place and review the performances of several partners without going to every single portals on every website. However, many programmes are not part of a market place.
Obviously you want high commission affilates, but they should also have a strong record with high converts and low cancellation fees (you get $0 if folks). When they are part of an affiliate marketing place like shareASale or ClickBank, you can see some numbers there. Businesses like Amazon/SiteGround are secure betting, otherwise research (or follow) your affiliate link so you can keep an eye on their activity.
Prevent the affiliate from charging massive fees, as this is likely to mean that they are having difficulty attracting/ binding clients in a natural way. WP Engine (hosting company) I could have applied for $200/sales without a tiered programme - sound quite good, right? The WP engine begins at $29/month, while SiteGround's is $3.95/month, plus SiteGround has a better name.
For SiteGround I had to go through a step-by-step programme to get $150/sale, but in the long run my research was worth it. The Amazon Affiliate Programme is the most beloved of all. I' m not (yet) participating myself, but the vast majority of affiliate marketeers I know use Amazon because... it's Amazon. Just check what you' ve used or create a tutorial (e.g. how to plug a computer into a TV) and let an affiliate download a HDMI connection... just a few of them.
When you are in the WordPress business as I am (whether it is designing, developing or SEO), I have collected a whole bunch of WordPress affiliate software. Excluding those I considered ineffective or paid too little to make a gain, especially ThemeForest, Creative Market and low value themed shops like TemplateMonsters.
I have written a tutorial for the SiteGround affiliate programme and the StudioPress topics, which are my two highest paid partners. Each of these exercises has a ton of screenshots/social proofs designed specifically for SiteGround. SitGround - My primary partner will pay $150/sale once you have reached the highest level. When you write review, you get 100% need SOME' snippet' s real estate plug-in.
To allow your reviewers to post ratings, try the Site Review plug-in. Contractors - direct individuals to developer, designer and other contractors you have worked with and make 100% of the contractor's first 90 day commit. So... so I referred them to my developer with a freelance affiliate hyperlink and made $125/month in my mobile revenue.
I can' t use affiliate hyperlinks to refer to certain freelance profile, so I redirect users to the homepage via the affiliate hyperlink and give my developers' user names to them. It' simple to promote Google AdSense on your blogs - but good luck making a reasonable profit out of it. It' NOT personalised, while affiliate linking involves individuals following YOUR recommendations for certain things.
As soon as you've selected your partners, register and let's go! Video - include affiliate hyperlinks to YouTube reviews and tell folks that you posted a hyperlink there. WorldPress - Plattform I suggest to build your website / your blogs. Hosted - I suggest you join the WorldPress Hosted and Spirit Up Facebook Group and see what true (unbiased) folks say about hosted.
In several Facebook surveys SiteGround was number 1 and in most Facebook calls number 1 (also here). Migrating users usually see significant loading performance enhancements, especially if they are currently using Godaddy/EIG. I' m using their semi-dedicated GoGeek schedule, which comes with 4x more servers than normal Shared hosting (factor #1 in the WordPress Optimization Guide) and has
