Let’s cut to the chase
Let’s skip over the boring introductions and opening statements and get right to the point. You’re here because you want to start making money online. It doesn’t matter whether you want to do it as a full time job or a side hustle, you just want to know what’s what so I’ll get right on into it.
It’s called Affiliate Marketing and it’s where you market other peoples products and you make a commission on each sale. You don’t need your own product, you just need to be confident in your ability to sell. I’m not going to sugar coat this with nice language to try and get you on side. If you’re interested then keep reading.
There are a few different ways that you can affiliate market products, one of the most popular ways is to advertise items on Amazon. The problem with that is you need to make a lot of sales to make any head way.
You want to be smart about it. What you want to look for is what is called a recurring income or, a repeating commission. This usually comes from membership sites that charge their users a monthly fee. Lets say that there is a marketing website designed for businesses. They provide marketing services for businesses and businesses pay them $97 a month. For every customer that you send to their website who signs up for the service, you will be paid for every month that they maintain their membership to the site. Let’s say that they pay a 40% commission. That means for every customer that you refer, you will get paid $38.8 a month. If you get 10 customers to that website then you will earn $388 a month. If you can get 30 people to subscribe the website then you earn $1164 a month. You can see where I’m going with this. The more customers you get, the higher your monthly income becomes.
That’s why I personally chose to affiliate market products that have a monthly recurring income. If you noticed I used some very specific numbers above and that’s because one of the affiliate programs that I promote has those exact figures. Over the next few paragraphs I’m going to go over different affiliate programs that return a monthly commission.
ClickFunnels is a sales funnel website that allows it’s users to build automated sales funnels to drive customers to their business and sell products. The best part about this membership website is that it offers a 14 day free trial for people to try it out. It also provides very extensive training to it’s customers so that those who do signup for the website are less likely to cancel their subscription.
The best part about their Affiliate Program is that they offer loads of value in the form of books and podcasts that are absolutely free and that you can market to your audience to get them onside. You could market a free book or a free podcast to your customers and then the people over at ClickFunnels will up sell them on other products and you can earn a commission on that.
For every person that signs up for the ClickFunnels website, you will earn $38.8 a month. This is quite possibly the best Affiliate Program that I’ve every experienced so if you are really considering affiliate marketing then definitely make sure Click Funnels is one of those that you promote.
Okay so that was the what. Now how do I market it?
Build a website. It’s a bit blunt I know but let me explain. Let’s continue using ClickFunnels for our example. ClickFunnels is a business to business service which provides an automated marketing service. That means that your customer is someone who is looking for automated marketing. Think local business or e-commerce, drop shipping what ever.
Build your website that targets your customer, for example, build a website that targets people who want to start or who have already started a drop shipping business online using Amazon, Ebay or their own website. You want to fill up your website with valuable content about drop shipping. You want to create pages and blog entries like, “How to start an online Drop shipping business” or ” Top 10 Mistakes people make in drop shipping” If you don’t know anything about drop shipping then do some research. There are loads of videos on YouTube or Blogs across the web that will offer this information. Once you’ve learned about it then write a blog post in your own words about it. You could even film a video and embed that into the web page for them to watch. The whole idea is that you want to build your website to provide high value content to whoever reads it.
After you’ve done all of that, build a page or a blog post titled,
“The Most Important Tools that Every Drop Shipping business should be using.”
This is where you start to market your affiliate links. On this page you are going to write about ClickFunnels and any other product that you are promoting and you will sell them the product like the following example.
I don’t care what business you are in, you need to be using ClickFunnels! <Affiliate Link>The reason I say this is because ClickFunnels <Affiliate Link> is a software that allows you to automate your entire sales machine.

Once you have your marketing page all set up and you have your affiliate links attached all through out it, I want you to create a banner ad. What you are going to do is place that banner ad at the bottom of everyone of your blog posts about drop shipping and have that ad link to your marketing page so no matter what blog post someone is reading, at the bottom of the post they are directed to your marketing page. I’ve created a banner ad for you to use for free so feel free to use it if you want.
That’s how you do it!
That’s it. That’s how you do it. That’s how you sell other peoples products and make a monthly commission. You find someones product and see if they have an Affiliate Program (Like ClickFunnels) Then you figure out, “Who is the customer who is going to buy this? Is it a woman in a corporate job? Is it a single father? Is it a small or medium business owner?” then you create a website around that customer. Fill it with loads of valuable content that the customer would be interested in. Then create a marketing page and have every blog post link back to that marketing page. Advertise your blog using SEO or facebook ads (Which is really easy to do) and then watch the traffic go to your blog and then convert into customers earning you affiliate commissions. It’s a really simple process that takes a small amount of time and effort to set up and hopefully bring in huge rewards.
