Affiliate Marketing Is A No Brainer.

Affiliate Marketing Is A No Brainer.

When choosing to go down the route of affiliate marketing you have two options, either you become an advertiser or a publisher.

The difference between a publisher and an advertiser is an advertiser might be a business, an app, mobile game, e-commerce platform, or a brand that wants to attract more custom and have a message they want people to see, a publisher on the other hand will either have advertising space such as a website, blog, social media page/group to display that advert. Or have an email list, a large network of connections, and may do content writing, where they will use their own marketing strategies to promote the campaign.

Publishers earn money by displaying ads, and the cost is usually based on the commission rates and how much traffic and conversions the publisher can generate. It is taboo to do direct advertising, it does not work. Furthermore, most advertisers prefer you not to go down this route but find a more indirect way of advertising. In order to drive traffic, the publisher should use the free options available to them before considering PPC advertising.

Affiliate marketing is a no-brainer because if you are someone that wants to monetize their website or blog, then offering your online space to companies in exchange for a commission is pretty simple to do and can earn you money.

However, if you are a business and want more sales and may not want to employ a marketing agency then becoming an advertiser you are essentially going to entice people that are interested in your brand /product(s) to advertise on your behalf in exchange for a commission.

This ultimately saves a ton of money paying marketing and advertising agencies monthly fees. In fact, some businesses actually employ people for this role, so imagine how much you will save paying an employee an hourly rate.

The name of the game is to save money, make money and get people to work for you without paying them a wage.

ADVERTISER.

To sign up as an advertiser or publisher just click the banner advert below:

(Get people to promote your products and services).

PUBLISHER.

As a publisher, you can choose adverts that are popular with the public. What is on everyone’s minds at the moment, well the rising cost of fuel prices of course, so you add this advertiser to your articles and advertising space.

Rising Costs Of Fuel Prices.

Special Occasions, Birthdays, and Anniversaries.

It is also coming up to Easter and what is going to be a family favorite… Easter Eggs?

As a publisher, you could also advertise High Ticket Affiliate Links such as the link below, all you need to do is click to register and start referring.

BullionVault

B2B and B2C Businesses.

If you are business orientated you want to advertise things relating to business as in the examples below:

Keep your business moving forward

Note From The Editor.

There are many programs to join through Awin. Not all advertisers listed on this page are Awin, for example, BullionVault is an independent Affiliate Program.

There are plenty of niches that can complement your site for example if you are a photographer you could have a florist or wedding dressmaker/designer. If you are a restaurant you could advertise tickets to shows (Ticketmaster). If you are an electrician you could advertise lighting and the list goes on. Obviously, you won’t find every single advertiser on Awin but it’s worth trying them out. They do ask for a £5 sign-up fee but they refund it and it is seen in your balance which will be paid back when you reach your payout threshold.

This joining fee is pretty standard like other companies I have joined charge up to £15.00 but then again they have really big commissions so I am not complaining and you get your money back regardless.

You can really promote anything that takes your fancy but try to be consistent and not be a jack of all trades. If you have a blog relating to travel then promote airlines and hotels. Always match the adverts to your niche. For us, we are a marketing company and we market all industries so it will make sense to use adverts matching the categories we are promoting.

How To Monetise Your Domain Name Or Business.

How To Monetise Your Domain Name Or Your Business.

BullionVault

Domain Name / Website Optimisation.

So you have a domain name and you have listed it on marketplaces and nothing is working. You have emailed prospective buyers, you have networked and even advertised, and nada…

But what if I showed you a way to make money from your domain whilst you waited to get a sale.

This strategy can be implemented in any niche.

It does not have to be domain names it could be any industry. You could simply be a startup waiting for a new client and you are wondering what to do next to get some money coming in. Your business could be slow and you are now researching what to do next to pay off your loans and credit cards and possibly even worried about the price hikes of petrol, gas, electricity, and food.

Here are the strategies you can use after I reveal what I do to make money whilst you sleep.

The secret is cookies (not the edible kind) and here I will explain my method. As you may know, I have many websites and am implementing this across my SEO Link Wheel, but one website will do.

Firstly you need to have a decent amount of people that you can network with. Building an email list takes time. If you have many followers on your Facebook Page you could start there but I would try to exhaust all avenues.

Don’t worry if you don’t have a large following, you may be generating a lot of traffic each month to your website so you could integrate banner ads on your homepage and in the footer of your site.

You can also explore classified ads and PPC advertising. If you need some help with this just send us an email at hello@cymrumarketing.com

Now my sites are targeted at business owners and I do try and write content regularly to boost my traffic. However, in one of my niches (Domain Sales and Acquisitions), some of the domains on my books owned by domain investors are not high quality do not have equity, and may get traffic but no sales. What I try and do in these cases is write articles about the keywords in the domains, but that does not really help to bring food to the table. Hence I have devised a strategy to not only optimize (SEO) my articles but add High Ticket Affiliate Links. Why waste your time with low-cost commissions when you get to earn big bucks for the same amount of time and effort.

Now what I am about to share with you, you can integrate into your email signatures, autoresponders, using an affiliate link, or add custom HTML code banner ads to your websites, social media pages, and articles.

About BullionVault.

About BullionVault.

Affiliate Partner.

BullionVault

The affiliate partner I have chosen not only will help people to save money but if they want to make money on a side hustle or boost their income, you could be a referrer and help them whilst also making a commission. It is no good to advertise to people that may not be interested in your affiliate program. you need to target people and perhaps encourage them to invest in Gold Bullion and tell them by signing up they get free silver bullion. Who doesn’t want something for nothing?

Signing Up – You get a Gift.

BullionVault

What is even more exciting is by using the following referral link you will get:

  • 1/8 oz (4g) of silver bullion.
  • €1 and $1 and £1. However if you register from Japan you will get ¥100 instead of the £1.

You may use them and immediately sell and buy silver on the BullionVault dashboard. If you use the order skilfully you can accumulate a growing balance, by putting some money aside each month or by earning commissions.

You’ll find you can use several of the vaults and all the currencies. You’ll be trading live and just like any normal BullionVault account, only smaller, without risk.

BullionVault

Becoming an affiliate is simple. First go to www.bullionvault.com and Register, so that you have a BullionVault account. Please note that you will need to validate your BullionVault account to withdraw any proceeds.

The html code you need to add to your website is:

<a href=”https://www.bullionvaultaffiliate.com/MYUSERNAME/en”>BullionVault</a>

Please note that the above referral URL structure is the only way referrers can link to BullionVault. If you use any other URL structure then you will not receive any commission.

BullionVault

You can track your referral program earnings online, by logging in and selecting HISTORY > REFERRALS.

Commission shares are passed to you the instant your referred customers trade, so you’ll also see your earnings reflected in your account balance and online statement. Please note that you will need to validate your BullionVault account to withdraw any proceeds.

Working With Amazon as an Affiliate or Seller.

Working With Amazon as an Affiliate or Seller.

If you are thinking of starting a side hustle I will go through something I do and then go into selling directly on Amazon.

I am an Amazon Assoicate, what this means is I get a commission for every product that is bought through my links within 24 hours of a click. Amazon Associates have a 24 hour cookie that they place on a visitors computer so that when the visitor clicks and returns within 24 hours no matter what they buy you will get a commission.

The Amazon Associates Affilate Program is one of the largest affiliate networks in the world that helps content creators, publishers, and website owners monetize their traffic. I prefer to use my blogs and websites and share my posts to my large following on LinkedIn. To monetize your website or blog takes time and you will not be an overningt success.

To be honest you need a lot of traffic to begin with, as the click through ratio is only 1-3 percent, so out of a hundred clicks you will have 1 – 3 visitors that will convert into a commission, so if a click is worth £10 for example you will get £10 to £30.

The beauty about Amazon affiliate marketing is you do not need a website or blog as you can share you links directly via email or social media platforms like Facebook which is less effort.

One also has to take into account the commission rates on a product, not all product commissions are equal.

Why waste your efforts promoting something that is low in commissions when you can devote your time doing the same thing with higher commission rates.

On the other hand instead of being an affiliate you could directly sell on Amazon, you do not neccessarily have to have any inventory, website or blog you can dropship or use Amazon FBA program. However what do you sell that is popular on Amazon? Here is a link to a list that changes every hour of products that are popular on Amazon and any given time:

AMAZON BEST SELLERS

You do need to consider your marketing strategies and some people as well as selling on Amazon sell their products via online stores that they have created themselves or had designed for them. Remember you need to do a lot of SEO to get your website blog on the first page of a search engines and you need exact match searchable keywords and phrases domain names.

To start selling on Amazon you first need to set up a sellers account: https://sell.amazon.com/sell.html

Affliliate Marketing

I have dabbled with affiliate marketing before and although I did start to make some money I pulled the plug on the project as I was not making enough to make it time worthy.

Since pulling the plug on my earlier project, as you know I have recently launched a community hub and local business directory www.roathlife.com and have started adding Amazon Associate affiliate links throughout the website. The categories are time consuming and I envisage uploading all the categories before the end of November 2020 in which by that time I plan to do PPC advertising to get more visitors. I am not using any fancy software and am manually listing all the businesses one by one. So for me affiliate marketing is still in the early stages as I have to be careful where I advertise. Where applicable depending on the niche I am promoting I will use my blogs to also promote advertisers links. You will see I have used Amazon Associates most recently on this site and also on my sister sites.

With that said Amazon Associates give you 180 days to get two clicks before they deactivate your account. They only give the person that clicks on your Amazon Link or Banner 24 hours to purchase something. The commissions are really low so if you are thinking of becoming a millionaire this way you can think again. They do have an Influencer page which I have not joined yet but no doubt I will sooner or later.

Another way to do affiliate marketing is to list other people’s products from www.clickbank.com they are an US company but you can join and become an affiliate in most palces around the world. There are some restrictions with some countires but I have had no problem joining even though I am from the UK. With Clickbank you do not need your own website you just promte the links on classified ads like craiglist.com, cardifffreeads.co.uk or gumtree.co.uk to name a few.

I am very sceptical about the affiliate marketers that claim they are millionaires through affiliate marketing and if that were true I would be one by now 🙂

However there is no harm in trying if it is not going to cost you anything.

With Amazon Associates you need a website to show them before you can start marketing their links. The click through ratio is 1-2% so if you have 1000 clicks to your add you should have 10 -20 people that should buy something or convert into a sale.

Here is an example of a guy called ‘John Crestani’ who teaches you for free Affiliate Marketing: https://ff13fyklcud4cm8e6kb74y3m9l.hop.clickbank.net/?cbpage=adv1

You could also try your hand with Google Adsense. Do your research and try to find high ticket affiliate programs where you get paid more for doing the same amount of work.

Most companies you will find nowadays have some sort of affiliate program if you scroll to the bottom of their footers or you search for the keywords “company affiliate program”.

I will no doubt be doing another post on this subject shortly.

But for now I am signing off to re-charge my batteries.

If you get stuck or unsure of something just send me a message.

I also forgot to mention I am also subscribed to:

Monetising Your Websites/Blogs

This is a test page/post for something I have dabbled in the past but have not actively done anything about until now.

So today I have decided to monetise all my blogs that I am managing for other clients as well as my own.

I was toying with the idea when I posted an image of a product on someone elses blog and thought what if the person reading the post will want to buy the product? What will I get for promoting it. So I thought ok here goes nothing.

If you are serious about monetising your sites consider Amazon Associates or Google Adsense. I prefer Amazon as that is where I do most of my shopping aswell as streaming etc.

So after spending the last couple of hours trying to figure out how to add the iframe code into the post I finally figured it out as it was not displaying on Mozilla Firefox for some reason. I will try clearing my caches late to see if it has worked, hence when I switched browsers and when onto Chrome you cannot image my joy when I actually saw the link visible.

So basically all you need to do is add the code into the ‘Custom Html’ block on your post in WordPress.

Finally always tell your visitors that you are using affiliate links in your posts for the sake of transparency as in the case of this site and this post in which I have done so in the cookie banner.
