How to Get Success in Affiliate Marketing - My Personal Experience

Updated on January 5, 2014


Tell me guys, what are the best ways to make money online? Well, the answer to this question lies hidden in some of the high earning affiliate programs. In the article, I will try to introduce you with such programs that can help you earn big bucks.

The concept of affiliate marketing is not new. It's a traditional way of marketing that can be used to generate huge amount of earnings with little effort. Those who are new to this field, need to put a bit of hard work initially, and after that can earn good amount of money.

In my initial days, I started earning online through Ad Sense (earning program run by Google). You can also earn a good amount of money through Ad Sense. Since, I was not satisfied with my overall earnings; I decided to explore some affiliate programs related to my niche. In a few months time, I achieved good results and my earnings grew up to several thousand dollars.

As you know, there are a number of affiliate programs being run by different online marketing companies, like Commission Junction, Click Bank, etc. you can join any of them as per your need. You are free to join more than one affiliate program at a time to boost your earnings. However, you can feel the power of affiliate marketing by enrolling to only one program, and then can join more such programs.

Concept of Affiliate Marketing

It's a traditional way of marketing where you need to promote a number of products and services of a company. You can earn really good commissions, if successful in selling one or more products of the company. As most of the companies are offering commissions up to 75%, you always have a chance to earn a decent amount by promoting their products in right way. For that, you need to work very hard and should have never give-up attitude.

I'll suggest you to be more consistent and try to focus on promoting the products in right way. It's normal if you face some hurdles or difficulties in achieving your targets initially, but you can easily overcome these hurdles and can help boost your earnings within a short time.

I can assure you that you can also start earning handsome money through affiliate marketing, as there is no limit for you to earn. I mean, you can earn as much as you plan. I also faced some challenges initially as I was unaware of different affiliate programs. However, my suggestion will be to enroll in those affiliate programs (Flip Cart, Click Bank, Commission Junction, etc.) that give up to 75% commissions or more. I've listed some features of affiliate marketing for you.

  • Affiliate marketing gives you a platform to earn as much as you can. There is no limit for you to earn.
  • You can choose any product or service as per your interest, and start promoting them in order to earn commissions.
  • You will generally get the payments either by check or Pay Pal.
  • You will be paid each time you make a sale. You will also be paid if a visitor enrolls for any services, you are promoting.

How Affiliate Marketing Works

Now, in order to achieve your target, you should know how affiliate marketing works. I'll give you step by step instructions to help you enroll in any affiliate program.

  • First, you will need a blog or a website in order to enroll for any affiliate program.
  • You can visit to any affiliate program website you like, and register.
  • After you register, you need to sign up and will be required to fill a form by giving some personal information.
  • You will be given a unique code or link by the company, once you successfully join any affiliate program.
  • Now, please copy and paste this code to your website or blog in order to promote one or more products.
  • This unique code actually helps the company to keep track of the number of sales or traffic (number of visitors coming to your website or blog) you make.
  • This code primarily refers a visitor directly to the company's website (after he or she clicks on the link) so that he can get more information about that particular product.

Apart from the above affiliate programs I discussed, there are some other programs as well which you may join like Flip cart, daily motion, payday loan, etc.

So, you can join any affiliate program of your choice, but the biggest question, what will you does without a good traffic coming your way?
