Affiliate Marketing ……… I am reluctant to admit I had never heard of this term or what it means.
I stumbled upon it watching a Youtube video on how to generate more followers to my blog, which hopefully in return will help me with my 20K goal. I found great advice; leverage Social Media sites, ensure they re all integrated, become a guest blogger(I will touch on this little gem in another post), and a lot other great tips.
But what really caught my attention was this concept of Affiliate Marketing and how you can use your blog to make money. Love it!
Maybe some of you are not similar with it either, so I found a short youtube video that sums it up. What is really embarrassing is that this video is 6 years old!! Talk about being out of the loop!
The more I thought about this concept I realized I am currently doing Affiliate Marketing, except in my case you buy the product directly from me and not Amway and that in lies my challenge. The Amway model is about face to face networking and not really designed for promotion on the internet. Because of this model I am left to build my own internet marketing materials(blogs, promos, ads. pop ups ect) to attract customers, where as other companies such as Amazon have this already built for you and your only job is to build content that attracts and promotes the products on Amazon.
Amazon Affiliate site, incase you may want to try it. There are a plethora of companies that offer this but Amazon seems to a popular one.
So how does this help me….lol it doesn’t.
However I am so intrigued with this concept, of generating an income solely from your laptop with little ties to the products or the company you are promoting , I thought it was worth sharing. In fact I am now more convinced than ever I will be successful selling Amway to customers strictly over the internet. Admittedly with a little more work a head of me but just need to find ways to be a more creative 🙂
Getting myself somewhat back on track, click here to have a look at all the great products Amway offers, and be sure to ask me how you can buy them at a discount.
