Here’s how: Use Facebook to create Custom Audiences of people who viewed your video (3 seconds or longer), and those who completed the video. For best results, re-target users who completed the video; they represent a more engaged audience that is more likely to convert.
With Facebook evolving as a “pay to play” platform with organic reach at an all time low for many brands, explore how a little marketing budget can go a long way in extending reach and acquiring new fans and customers. We will show you how to unlock the secrets of the challenging Power Editor advertising platform.
Commission payouts by the company are usually given on a monthly basis, but this varies depending on the affiliate program terms. It could be a weekly payout or a monthly payment for all the leads or sales that you have made.
A successful Youtube affiliate marketer must attract the right kind of traffic and preferably, lots of it. You have to collaborate with other Youtubers with a lot of subscribers. Remember that people with a lot of subscribers are picky about whom they choose to associate with. So you need to offer a compelling proposition.
Thanks Nathalie! And glad to see you came over from AONC 🙂 When done the right way I think affiliate links in context are much less intrusive and offensive than having ads on your sidebar. The average non-tech reader probably wont even know its an affiliate link anyway. So just by doing everything you’ve already been doing, you can switch out links, and probably make a nice side income!
Merchants favor affiliate marketing because in most cases it uses a “pay for performance” model, meaning that the merchant does not incur a marketing expense unless results are accrued (excluding any initial setup cost).
I always run my affiliate links through redirects – also referred to as cloaking affiliate links – for several reasons:Running them through my redirects means I have a click count to match up to the one the merchant is reporting. Affiliate links … Read More

Wonderful post. Thanks for sharing the insights. Would you mind throwing some light on not your product itself but the competition your product had prior to you entering. For example – I sell essential oil in the geated beauty category and since the competition is so fierce, I’m struggling to make organic sales. Indeed, sales and reviews seem to be the mantra for AMZ algo. I’m currently trending at 31 reviews and should hit the 50 review mark in 2 weeks hopefully. I’m truly hoping things start to change then.
The course also covers conversion tracking with the Facebook pixel, and retargeting users who have previously interacted with your brand’s page or website. Plus, learn how to use the Power Editor to quickly duplicate ads with different targeting or imagery, and move ads between accounts. And last but not least, Megan reveals tips for mimicking A/B testing of ads and generating more leads.
I’ll use MoneySavingExpert.com as an example again. The site has over 154,000 likes on its Facebook page and it connects with the audience by sharing links to content but also asking money-saving/budgeting related questions. The highly engaged readers then visit the website, where they read content and no doubt make purchases.
The second type of video will be 3 ‘summaries’ – or books that the affiliate marketer has read and then condensed into a five minute video. This will be popular with students, readers, people in the book industry and bloggers.
Choose your audience. Like I mentioned before, you have a wealth of targeting options at your disposal. You can also retarget previous website visitors or use any of the Custom Audiences you might already have, like your email list or app users. You can also target the fans of your Facebook page.
Nice tips here, Steve. I’ve been a huge fan of YouTube for niches other than IM-related stuff. Apart from a few outliers, my Blogging Bookshelf and The Backlight videos never got too many views. How do your SSS vids fare? My Amazopia videos, though, have 220,000+ views now and are the main source of traffic for the blog. And I know you’ve said in the past that you get lots of YouTube traffic for your main niche.
Your post does give inspiration. I have just started and built my first site, the backlinking side is the hardest, it takes forever. Keep up the motivational posts, helps keep going when my clicks = 0 for the day.
