A WordPress theme provides all the styling of a site that you (and your audience) see on the front end. There are thousands of themes available, so choosing one might seem daunting at start. Our advice: go with something simple and easy to customize. You can always change it later.
And this is becoming a favorite online marketing technique for both advertisers and affiliates. Why? The seller makes a sale they otherwise may not have received, and you get a piece of the earnings – win, win.
So what I’ll do is put together an article of all the top products that are on sale in my niche using the tips I’ve shared earlier like linking as many times as possible, making the product image clickable and then sending out an email to my list etc. to get even more conversions.

Facebook began moving aggressively to show videos to its users a couple of years ago, and by 2016 said those users were watching 100 million hours per day. But unlike almost everyone else in the ad business, CEO Mark Zuckerberg has forbidden “pre-roll” video ads, which run before a clip starts.
Good point about reviewing online courses before you promote them to protect your reputation. However, I would like to point out that the level of attention the course creator gives you (the endorser) and what they give to a random customer might be very different. There are so called marketing gurus out there who are extremely skilled at making false promises and not delivering on them. Once they have the endorsement of a few reputed marketers and some ‘lucky’ customers, they can easily get away with ripping other people off with hyped up money making guarantees. I have had a personal experience with this as a customer, but lets not mention names! The point is, when we are promoting someone, we need to do an in-depth due diligence. Only going through their course is not enough. It would be great if there was some kind of a course review site -something like tripadvisor. This is something that the industry really needs – something to make people accountable. A lot of people are losing faith in these online courses. I am staying away from promoting people unless I am very certain of their integrity.

Sell what you know. To start, you should stick to selling products or services that you’re familiar with. Online marketers call this process “picking your niche.”  You should select a niche that represents your current interests or your occupation.
Hi, Thanks for the really good article. I notice in your section about text links to Amazon they open in the same window. I have trying to find out how to open them in a new window with no luck. Any ideas? Thanks.
You can put up banners on your site, to promote your affiliate offers. Most affiliate programs will usually provide their own creatives when you sign up for their offers. All you have to do is insert the banner on a highly trafficked page (your affiliate tracking is usually embedded within the code). Banner ads in the right locations can do a great job of driving sales.
There is no charge for joining an affiliate program, however, your total cost depends on what promotion technique you are using. For example, a blog post doesn’t cost a dime, but PPC marketing, email marketing, and advertising come with various price tags.
This is a special course that particularly focuses on Facebook Remarketing / Retargeting. It helps you build laser targeted custom audience for your ads on the basis of content you share on social media. The truly insane feature of this course is that it helps you retarget visitors of other websites. Sounds too good to be true? Well there’s a catch, but they are true to their word, it does actually help you do that. To get started you will need to have basic understanding of facebook ads and remarketing. Crazy and one of the best facebook ads course, try it out.
Absolutely. Affiliate marketing is a viable and legitimate way to monetize your blog or website. Tens of thousands of merchants run affiliate programs and will pay you a commission for sending them sales. However, there are some scams centered around affiliate marketing. You’ll find information on how to spot affiliate scams – and avoid them – here.
Great post Leanne, it’s always great to see affiliate marketing in a concise and to the point fashion. When using analytics to track conversions, what factors do you feel are the most important to focus on for affiliate marketers? Where do you see a lot of affiliate campaigns fall flat in terms of optimizing their campaigns?
For me I would choose a program with Recurring commission. You can build a real passive income. Its the best way to go! One suggestion is contact companies who sell services and ask if you can sell their service for them. Sometimes popular affiliate programs like these have just way too many people trying to sell their service. I personally went to sitecare.ca and asked them if I could sell their service and I couldn’t be happier! So find a service you believe in and go for it!
We’re more than just a blog! Our online software helps marketers turn analytics into insights that guide decision-making and growth. Kissmetrics is different because it ties every visit on your website to a person – even if they’re using multiple devices.
As for forums, I couldn’t say with certainty what might be best. I’m not well versed in your niche but a Google search would probably yield plenty of results. A great way to select forums is to think of your ideal reader/viewer and where they might “hang out” online.
Nothing breaks a reader’s trust more than being led to a promotion that will blow up their inbox. Put yourself in the shoes of a potential customer and see what will happen if they follow your advice.
HI Julie!! Thank you! I’m SO GLAD you’ve found the series helpful…I do plan to add more, I’ve just been so swamped lol. And my back hurts much to sit at the computer most of the time, so that’s tricky. I’m happy to hear you’re making progress – slow and steady is good when it comes to blogging!
Yes, I always leave the site when there are hundrets of add or even worse popus in you face. Its hard to believe for me, that those even work. Everyone I know, the first thing they are looking for the X sign in those popups.
