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…
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 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:
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):
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):
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:
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!
