How to Become An Affiliate Marketer Like Me?
Let's cut the crap, you're ready for the big league now. No, lengthy explanation on what is affiliate marketing.
You already know affiliate marketing promoting other peoples products or services for a commission. Which could be a fixed amount or a percentage of the sale.
I mean we can discuss CPA (cost per action or acquisition) or revenue share, or rev-share for cool kids like you, in more details.
But why? Most product trials, email submits, low-cost front end programs and services are CPA offers. On the other hand high-ticket offers ($500+) are mostly shared revenue at around 50%.
However, who cares about that as long as you making it rain dollar bills?
I mean, I know 6-figure affiliates that still don't know what CPA stands for, and so what. Easy peasy lemon squeezy, you got this
The First Step of Marketing Life
Just take it easy. Marketing is really a mix of art and science, and depending where you land on that spectrum will reflect in your marketing.
If you love numbers, and you're technical your marketing with be data driven. Nothing wrong with that as marketing is often testing, and split-testing and crunching numbers.
On the other hand, if you're more of an artist you pear into your prospect heart and see what he desires from the start. See through his soul. Be like a great composer and craft your promotion to its liking.
OR just go with what works…
Honestly, you probably need at least a bit from each to be a great marketer, but hey, there is always fiverr.
What does that mean? Just start…
Step 2: Begin Your Journey into Becoming an Affiliate.
Honestly, there is no greater feeling than receiving that acceptance letter from an affiliate program.
I mean university acceptance letter? Weak! Affiliate program? Winning!
You can already smell those dollars, probably can't as it's all digital, but you can feel like you are smelling it.
Sure, there are tons of affiliate programs that you don't even need to be accepted, like Clickbank (but there are procucts on CB that you need to apply to but about that later)
Listen, just start, and there are hundreds of ways to start.
Best Way to Start as an Affiliate in The Beginning
Let's do this thing, enough of chit-chat. Let's step it up.
- Just sign up for any affiliate program like Clickbank
- Pick an offer, any offer
- Promote it, using any traffic you want
- Make some sales
Of course, it will really depend on what product you choose, what traffic source, and how well you promote it. But you never know, you might just strike gold.
In fact, let me just give you a few examples:
Make Money with YouTube as an Affiliate
You probably heard that YouTube is the second most visited site in the world? Take that Facebook! It's also the second biggest search engine after google.
In fact, you can have videos rank on both Google and YouTube at the same time and it's affiliate marketing friendly. If you okay on camera, you should jump on it right now.
Don't worry about production, there are many evidence that everyday videos (ones that look like you just wiped out your phone and started recording) do very well on YouTube.
Why? Because they feel casual and normal, unlike big production adverts.
However, if you don't want to get on camera just hire someone for a few bucks or better yet, used a something like pictory to create videos with AI.
In fact, learn how to create AI YouTube ads that make thousands with Profit Singularity Ultra Edition.
Make Money with Pinterest as an Affiliate
So, here's the rub, Pinterest is amazing if you're just starting out and want to make a quick buck without even starting a website.
Now, of course, in 2023 Pinterest might seem dated, but that's hardly the truth. It's the 35th most visited site in the world, and has about as much as half users as Instagram.
However, people don't go on pinterest to watch other people beach photos, or thrist-traps, or whatever is popular this week. No, they use it to get inspired or find things to do, or buy. Did I just say buy?
Yes, I don't have hard data from it but it seems Pinterest is the most buyer friendly place in the web.
You can promote tons of stuff with Pinterest as an affiliate, and even rank your boards in Google like I do.

Other Ways to Get Started with Affiliate Marketing
There are plenty of ways to get started with affiliate marketing as beginner. I'll try to cover as much as I can in this single page but with time it will become a resource page.
Hopefully, I'll be able to expand and build beyond any course or system to help you become an affiliate master.
Are you looking forward to becoming a affiliate marketer? I know it can be the greatest feeling in the world.
Just imagine, setting up a Pinterest account, or uploading a video, making even creating a blog to earn passive commission 24/7.
It's funny when I see money in my back account for something I forgot I was promoting. Yes, it happens.
So, what are you waiting for? Just get started already no matter what you do it will be better than nothing.
In fact, go start a blog, free or paid, and write something in it that you want. Maybe create a case-study where you will make money online.
That's all for now beginner, soon you will not be one. Affiliate marketing rocks./
