How Do I Earn Income Online

Updated on March 25, 2015

Did you know companies will pay you a commission when you refer customers to their product(s) or service(s)?

Can you imagine earning a commission by referring people to other peoples products?

If the customer you refer buys the product or service you recommend, you will earn a commission.

How awesome is that?

This process is called affiliate marketing.

It is by far the easiest way to begin making money online.


What To Expect As An Affiliate

The 1st thing to understand is that earning a consistent income online may take a little time.

Notice I said consistent income.

Sure you can make money online right away, but to do it on a consistent basis takes some expertise.

If done correctly you will see a steady increase in revenue.


How Affiliate Marketing Works

Finding Your Niche...

What are you passionate about?

What are you most interested in?

These are the questions you should ask yourself before you choose a product or service to promote as an affiliate marketer.

The most successful affiliates find a profitable niche markets.

Finding a profitable niche takes some research but there is no substitute for passion.

After choosing a niche, it is important to establish yourself as an authority.

This may take a little time, but if you think quality & value over money you will do well.

Whatever niche you choose, focus on helping people solve their problems.

Provide actionable information for them and you will BE FAR AHEAD OF THE GAME.


Find a mentor...

Find a mentor who has a proven track record.

Get the proper training, but your success will come from the desire to succeed.

It may be helpful to you to see some of the ways I have failed as it may help in your success.

See some of my affiliate marketing lessons.



Choose A Business Model...

As an affiliate marketer there are several business models to use.

Email Marketing, PPC, CPA, Social, Search are just a few.

Focus your attention on one model and master it.

Search Engine Optimization is the process of structuring your website or blog in a way Search Engines like Google, Yahoo, Bing and others list your page at the top of their SERP (Search Engine Results Page).

This is the most profitable business model.

If you choose to content marketing as an affiliate and you start your own website or blog, be sure you get a clear understanding on how to structure your content for the search engines.

Finding a profitable niche and doing keyword research is essential as it is key to the process of getting to the top of Google's Search Engine.


PPC Marketing...

PPC Marketing requires a different set of skills.

This is a simpler process although there are certain guidelines to follow when placing PPC Ads.

This business model also requires intense keyword research.

Selecting (Buy Keywords) and scaling your Ad Campaigns will increase your ROI (return on investment).

Put yourself in the mindset of the person most likely to search for your PPC Ads to aid in your keyword research.

Using this simple concept can increase your CTR (click through rate) and substantially improve your ROI.
