Now you just have to put some action into it and actually Learn How To Make Money Online With An Affiliate Program, right?   

 

If you were able to answer “YES” and check-off () the three questions above, then you are definitely reading the right article today, because in this FREE Step-By-Step Guide, I am literally going to be showing you not only how to become an affiliate program marketer with setting up your first affiliate program, but I’m also going to walk you through each individual step on how to make money online with an affiliate program, so let’s get started…


 

How To Make Money With An Affiliate Program

SETTING UP YOUR FIRST AFFILIATE PROGRAM (Signing up as an Affiliate):

Now there are MANY companies out there today that offer “Affiliate Programs” which are sometimes also called “Associate(s) Programs” so you first have to decide on what affiliate/associates program you want to start with….so how do you decide which one is best for you?

 

Well, that topic will have to be an entirely different article (which I intend on writing for you someday soon), but for now, let’s just use the example of one of the largest affiliate programs on the planet that many people turn to which is Amazon’s Associates (Affiliate) Program.


 

 

STEP 1 – CLICK ON THE PHOTO BELOW TO GO TO AMAZON’S SIGN UP/SIGN IN PAGE:

STEP 2 – SIGN-IN TO AMAZON (OR SIGN-UP IF YOU DON’T ALREADY HAVE AN ACCOUNT)

Please note that this Sign-In/Sign-Up How To Make Money Online With An Affiliate Program step is only giving you access as an Amazon “USER” at this point.  You will also have to sign up (separately) for their affiliate program called Amazon Associates, which I’ll walk you through within the following steps.  So if you haven’t done so already, sign up or sign into Amazon by clicking the photo above or this photo here:  How To Make Money Online With An Affiliate Program


 

STEP 3 – AFTER SIGNING IN, SCROLL TO THE VERY BOTTOM OF THE MAIN PAGE AND YOU’LL SEE A SECTION LIKE THIS:

In the photo above, you’ll notice the second column from your left is titled, “Make Money with Us,” (looks like this):

How To Make Money Online With An Affiliate Program

 

In this column about five links down, you’ll see a link titled, ” How To Make Money Online With An Affiliate Program” and you will need to click that link.


STEP 4 – FOLLOW AMAZON’S INSTRUCTIONS AND COMPLETE THE ASSOCIATES/AFFILIATE SIGN UP FORM

AND BE SURE TO READ THE REQUIREMENTS, REGULATIONS & POLICIES SO THAT YOU CLEARLY UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU CAN AND CANNOT DO AS AN AFFILIATE/ASSOCIATE OF AMAZON.

STEP 5 – ONCE YOU’VE BEEN APPROVED, NOW YOU CAN PROMOTE “ANY” PRODUCT ON AMAZON AND EARN COMMISSIONS WITHOUT HAVING TO STOCK OR SHIP ANY ITEMS YOURSELF!

So in STEP 5 here, I’m going to show you how easy it is to promote ANY product of your choosing so you can start earning commissions.  Now that you’re an Amazon Approved Associate, when you go to Amazon.com (and if you’re logged in), you’ll notice a new bar across the top of the Amazon page that looks like this:

…and to the left of the bar (in photo above) is a few super easy ways to get links to ANY PAGE OR ITEM and/or SHARE ANY PAGE OR ITEM with just a click or two of the mouse button.  So look for these buttons within the gray bar (mentioned above):

STEP 6 – CREATE AN “AFFILIATE LINK” TO THE PAGE OR PRODUCT ITEM YOU’RE WANTING TO PROMOTE/SHARE LIKE THIS:

Simply search for a product you want to promote (in this example, let’s search for and promote a Refrigerator):

(Click Photo Above To Enlarge)

 

 

I searched for “Refrigerator in Appliances” and these three popped up in the search results first:

So let’s say that I am a “fan” of LG products, therefore, I decide to promote the refrigerator that is on the far right, not just because I’m a fan, but also because it has good customer feedback ratings plus it is currently being Discounted (hence the “strike-through” on the asking price).  Now I click on the photo or the link of the fridge I want to promote:

Once I’ve clicked on the product description link or photo I want to promote (click on the picture of the fridge above to see a live example), then Amazon will take me to what they call the “Full Description” page of that particular product I selected, which will look like this (click below photo to enlarge for better view in Amazon):

Then above the description of this refrigerator, you’ll notice that “Grey Bar” (which is the affiliate link generator) and you’ll click on the button that says “Short Link To This Page” which will look like this once you click on it:

(Click Photo Above To Enlarge)

 

NOTICE THE HIGHLIGHTED YELLOW-ORANGISH LINK (IN PIC ABOVE)?

That is the “MONEY MAKER” link right there!

You just hover over that link with your mouse, right click and “COPY”….now you’re ready for the final step which is……..Drumroll Please………


 

STEP 7 – PROMOTE YOUR ASSOCIATES/AFFILIATE LINK AND…YOU GUESSED IT…MAKE MONEY!!!

So far, you have successfully created the following:

-1-  You successfully signed up for and logged into Amazon’s Associate Affiliate Program!

-2-  You successfully found a product that you wanted to promote!

-3-  You successfully generated an “Affiliate Link” that you are going to use to promote that product with online!

-4-  And now, you’re going to successfully “SHARE” that link on all of your social media sites, through email, on a business card, on your website, on your blog or even by texting it to people you know that may be interested in the products that you’re generating affiliate program links for.


 

 

SO WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?  GET YOUR AFFILIATE LINKS, START PROMOTING THEM AND START MAKING SOME DOUGH RIGHT NOW!

      Hey Nicki,

      You’re most welcome and I’m so glad that you found this information valuable and useful…that’s what makes it all worth it! 🙂

      Yes, blogging is definitely a great way to market / promote your Amazon affiliate links for sure.

      To answer your question (which was: “What would be a good way to set up a website or blog to promote Amazon links?”)…I believe the best way is to learn through an educational platform that will teach you all you need to know, plus walk you through each and every step, step by step, of precisely what you need to do to not only set up a website or blog to promote your Amazon links, but will also teach you and walk you through the steps of learning how to successfully promote your website and/or your blog as well.

      You can find all of this training, education, online website building tools and more at: http://www.WealthyAffiliate.com (or just click on the link HERE and it will take you straight there).

      Once you’ve signed up for wealthy affiliate, then please come back by here at FiredOrDenied.com and comment back on this thread to let the Public know about your experiences and whether or not this educational course actually helped you get your blog and/or website up and running….The people want to know.

    Affiliate marketing, or any online business for that matter, is one of the greatest opportunities for those seeking income these days. The internet currently has billions of users and this number grows by the thousands every single day. These are all potential visitors to your website if you have one, and these people are looking for quality information, products/services to buy, places to interact with like-minded individuals, etc. Now is the time to turn your passion into a thriving online business. The best part of it all is it’s relatively cheap and doesn’t take any coding experience. Websites can easily be built by even the least tech-savvy individuals,using programs like WordPress. I hope people take your advice and give affiliate marketing a shot!

    • Jeremy Wilson Post author

      Hello Matt,

      Thank you for taking the time to visit my site and read through my articles…I’m excited that you found value in them!

Would you mind commenting back for the greater good of all the readers, and give us more information on who you are, what lead you to pursue affiliate marketing and any successes you’ve had along the way or values and experiences you’ve gained from it???

      That would be really awesome and highly valuable info for folks out there. I look forward to hearing back from you soon and I can’t wait to read your stories you comment on here. 🙂

    Thank you for sharing this easy to follow step by step on how to set up an affiliate account. It looks easy enough to start promoting products!

    I like that with Amazon there are a ton of products that you can promote. What are the incentive commissions like for Amazon? What is the best rate with other affiliate programs?

    • Jeremy Wilson Post author

      Dinh…You’re back! You Rock! 🙂

      You are most welcome, it’s the least I could do. I’m just so encouraged whenever I can encourage others…it’s like a “Giver’s Gain” so to speak.

      Yeah, Amazon is a great starting point to begin earning income online relatively quickly, however, they pay out what most affiliate marketers would consider “Low commissions” or “low percentages.” There are many other platforms that anyone can use to promote products (even the many of the same products that Amazon offers) such as “Commission Junction” otherwise known as CJ or http://www.cj.com

      To answer your question, the commissions at Amazon usually range from 6% to 8%.

      And to answer your second question, There are affiliate programs available out there that offer up to 65% commissions.

      So you can clearly see that it literally “PAYS” to do your homework when it comes to affiliate programs and one of the best places to find information on what affiliates pay out the best percentages is: http://www.WealthyAffiliate.com (and on top of that, they provide extensive training on how to get started making money online in the best possible ways….Period).

      Does this information answer your questions to your satisfaction? If not, please reply back with specific details & questions below and I’ll get back to you within the next 24 to 48 hours with the best possible answers that I can find.

    Great presentation on how to promote a product in affiliate program. For people who don’t know how an affiliate program works ,Amazon is a perfect example. They know that amazon is one of greatest website for online shopping and they can trust it. they sell over 10s of million of product a day.

    You will never regret working with Amazon. but I got a question What do think about E-bay, which one do you think is better in terms of affiliate program?
    Cheers

    • Jeremy Wilson Post author

      Hello Again Jagulba, Great to hear back from you again!

      A huge thanks to you for the props on my article, mucho appreciated! However, I did remove your link to Business Insider due to the fact that FiredOrDenied.com does not allow third party links within the comment threads on it’s website or within it’s articles…and it was also outdated since it was written in 2012. I hope you understand. Nothing else about your comment was edited though and I do agree with you regarding the statements you made about Amazon.

      To answer your question…In all honesty, I have not utilized Ebay’s affiliate program as of yet, but I do plan on doing so as time permits, so as of right now, I could not give an adequate comparison until I’ve actually put it to the test….but I’m definitely curious to get other people’s thoughts on the matter, so if any of you out there that are reading this article right now and you have had experience with both Amazon’s affiliate program as well as Ebay’s affiliate program…Please do comment on this thread and share your experiences with us all, as I myself would like to know more about the differences too.

      All The Best,
      Jeremy David Wilson

        Hey Jeremy,

        That’s quite alright, I just posted that link to show how huge is amazon. No worries!
        I would be interested when you start working with E-bay to post something about it and share it with us.
        and also as you said, we welcome anybody else here to answer this question, we will be grateful.
        Cheers

        • Jeremy Wilson Post author

          Yes, I definitely want to test Ebay and their affiliate program, I just have a lot on my plate as it is at the moment and so that one will have to wait…but I will test it out down the road, hopefully sooner than later…and will absolutely write a solid review about their program as well as a comparison review between Ebay & Amazon so that folks can see a “side-by-side results” comp where I would reveal everything, even the exact dollar amount of what I spent to advertise and also reveal every penny I made so that folks can see “The Real Deal!”

          Great to hear from you again Jagulba and I hope you keep coming back! Please forward our site URL to those who you think would benefit from our services. Thank you!

          All The Best,
