Have you ever thought that you could make money by referring products from an e-commerce site ?

Yes or maybe Not!

It is possible through - ‘Affiliate Marketing’.

Affiliate Marketing is simply: A method of earning a commission by promoting other people’s product.

This is How it works:-

1. You choose a type of product that you want to promote.
2. Register for the affiliate program.
3. Get an affiliate link (which is a special link that tracks all the purchases made by the people using your link).
4. Promote this link.
5. Earn a commission when people buy from it.

There a dozen of affiliate programs available on the internet. But the most popular ones in India is from Amazon and Flipkart.

The best part about Amazon is that:

You earn a commission even when someone makes a purchase on not only the product you’re promoting but on any one or more product that the person buys from amazon within 24 hours, after clicking your link.

This means that you’ll get a commission on not only the product that you’re promoting but on all the products sold in amazon.

This is because when a person clicks on your affiliate link, a special ‘cookie’ gets stored in the browser for 24 hours and all the purchases made by him in that time limit, is credited to you!

But, How to promote this link ?

You can do it, in a number of ways. But the best and the most reliable way is by creating your own website. Let's start

Step 1: Choose the type of product you want to promote

First visit this page on amazon and select a category.

Choose a category in which you’re most interested in.

This is very important because what you choose here, will be the topic of your website in the next step.

Choosing a topic helps you to write similar kind of articles for your audience easily. This is also called as ‘choosing your niche’.

Once you’ve selected your topic/category, you can go to the next step.

  1. Nice video, simple and clear.
    Which would be the best way to attract more traffic, facebook ads google ads or just organic SEO?

    1. +code labs

      I saw many people talk about the organic traffic that it’s evergreen and no one can beat it. See from this perspective. You site is ranked one for some keywords and you are getting a good amount of traffic because you are ranked one. Cool enough. If google tomorrow changes it’s search algorithm then in one night your earning will fall to zero.

      This isn’t case with paid traffic. Paid traffic is something that you can generate at your will. I am not saying organic traffic is not good. Just saying that your affiliate marketing must have combination of the both. I hope this helps.

    2. This is only the case if you are planning to become an amazon associate. Otherwise you can proceed with affiliate marketing through other retailers like clickbank, jvzoo, shareasale, CJ. List just goes on and on

  2. if my friend wants to buy a mobile for sure…then what if I create affiliate link of that phone model and post it on my YouTube video (the video would be be based on motorcycles) so if I post that affiliate link on the motorcycle video and if I ask my friend to buy by clicking on that link so will it work ? I mean to ask that does the video needs to be related to that affiliate link or I can post that affiliate link on any video which has no relation with that link..?
