What Is The Best Way To Earn Money Online At Home

 

Affiliate Marketing is the best and most straightforward way to earn money online at home, and why is that?

What is Affiliate Marketing — Oxford dictionary defines as

A marketing arrangement by which an online retailer pays a commission to an external website for traffic or sales generated from its referrals.” (which means you can do Affiliate Marketing in between your household chores.)

Affiliate marketing is an online sales tactic that lets a product owner increase sales by allowing others targeting the same audience—”affiliates”—to earn a commission by recommending the product to others. At the same time, it makes it possible for affiliates to earn money on product sales without creating products of their own.

Simply put, affiliate marketing involves referring a product or service by sharing it on a blog, social media platform, or website. The Affiliate earns a commission each time someone purchases through the unique link associated with their recommendation. Done well, this performance-based opportunity can become an essential part of your business by netting you a healthy income.

How does affiliate marketing work?

To participate in an affiliate marketing program, you’ll need to take these five simple steps:

  1. Find and join an affiliate program.
  2. Choose which offers to promote
  3. Obtain a unique affiliate link for each offer
  4. Share those links on your blog, social media platforms, or website.
  5. Collect a commission anytime someone uses your links to make a purchase

Commission rates vary dramatically, depending on the company and the offer. On the low end, you’ll earn about 5% of the sale but, with some arrangements, you can earn as much as 50%, usually when promoting a class or event. There are also affiliate marketing programs that provide a flat rate per sale instead of a percentage.

 

The first thing you must do is to create a website.

To create your website but no idea how to start. You, not being a tech-savvy, or being a newbie, holds you back from doing it. And we can not ignore that the “cost” of building a website concerns you as well.

I will show you that building your website is not that difficult as you think. You can have your website up and running in just EASY and SIMPLE STEPS! FOR FREE!!

So, for whatever reason you have on why do you want to have your website, I’m telling you that it is possible to create your own for FREE! Newbie or not.

As I said, Affiliate marketing is one of the easy ways to earn money online, and the whole procedure divided into four simple steps.

Break, down; the process looks like this:

  1. Choose an Interest
  2. Build a Website
  3. Attract Visitors
  4. Earn Revenue

Affiliate marketing is not more than these four steps, and I would like to explain each of the steps so that you get a clear idea about what is affiliate marketing.

1. Choose An Interest

We have some hobbies, interests, or passions; I know you must be having some hobby or have authority on a subject, like parenting, cooking, exclusive knowledge in the banking field, education field, or like me in Healthy Japanese living.

You can choose any of your hobbies and turn into your business. All the above examples which I shared above can generate a vast income and are related to simple subjects like parenting, mommy blogs, or blogging.

Cooking is an evergreen niche, and if you observe cooking blogs and YouTube Channels have thousands of subscribers. Just to let you know, the more the subscribers you have on your YouTube channel, the more the income you can generate through it.

Each of us has cooking excellence, and you can share your tips though blogs and YouTube channels if you choose to cook as your niche.

And it is true, with every niche whatever subject strikes your mind right now, yes absolutely from any niche you can earn money online.

2. Build A Website

The next vital step to earn money online is to have your website. Having your website is like having your estate online.

Many people are promoting their products through different social media platforms like Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, and so on. Many are doing great through it, and it is possible to earn from these mediums also, so a win-win situation.

But these social media platforms can shut down your account anytime, if you by mistake also, post something which is against their terms and conditions.

I know because my friend YouTube channel gets terminated, just because she accidentally posted one of an affiliate link, which was against YouTube Channel. So it is always on a safer side, to have all your content on your website and then publish on different social platforms if you need to.

Is It Difficult To Create Your Website?

I know you must be thinking of this in your mind, but I want to assure you that to create your website from scratch, you will only need 60 seconds and less. Yes, you heard me right, today technology is so advanced that I have seen the site can be built only in a minute.

Even if you do not have any technical knowledge about computers, you can quickly build your website in a minute. I do not know about computers or any technical skill, but still, from the last three years, I am running my sites online.

3. Attract Visitors

buying online

The time-trusted and straightforward formula to earn money online is

More Visitors = More $$$, it is as simple as that.

But how will you attract visitors to your website, and earn money through it?

I know you might have shopped online many times, right? Now recall the procedure before you buy anything online or offline?

Buying products online, you have to research the product, must have read many reviews about the product, search through different websites.

Different deals through different e-commerce sites, and once you convinced that the product is excellent and right for you, then you purchase it. Right?

Or some friend or colleague recommended that product to you and you buy it. And this is the same procedure we are going to create through our websites and content.

Once you set up your website and decide your niche, the next important step is to create quality content regularly.

One thing that you need to remember is that Google wants quality content, and if you provide good content that is useful and relevant to your audience, it will help you to make money through it.

Always remember, before trying to sell any product, try to solve their problem, help them by offering them tips and your services for free.

“People don’t buy Products; People Buy Solution.”

When you provide them quality content, guide them through your suggestions, and try to solve their problem, people will trust you and buy from you.

Tip:

Create quality content, which is helpful and solves their problem regularly without fail, is the secret of success online.

There are a ton of products online, which you can promote through your website, even if you consider Amazon, think of the billions of product there.

Once you become the affiliate member of Amazon or any of the affiliate networks of your choice, you need to write quality content through your blog posts and promote it through different social media platforms like Facebook, Pinterest, YouTube, and so on.

These are the primary traffic sources today, which can bring a ton of targeted traffic to your website and make a sale and earn an affiliate commission for you.

To become an affiliate is free.

One of the significant benefits of affiliate marketing is that it is free to join; there are many popular affiliate networks like ClickBank, Amazon, Awin, Shareasale, and so on.

Once you sign in to their affiliate program, it may take 15 days or so, to select you as an Amazon affiliate. Amazon has its criteria to choose anyone to their affiliate program.

You need to have a neat and clean website with quality content, and I would recommend you not to apply for the Amazon Affiliate program, till you have enough quality content on your website.

Amazon will not pass your application, and you will need to reapply again to become an Amazon affiliate.

4. Earn Revenue

I know you might be thinking of this question, how to earn revenue through a blog post? I will explain it to you.

Once your site set up and you have quality content, you should apply for different quality affiliate programs.

Let’s say You applied for the Amazon Affiliate Program. Amazon will check your website and your content. If you create quality content that is useful for your readers, Amazon will permit you to promote their products as an Amazon Affiliate.

Once you become Amazon Affiliate, Amazon will provide you a unique affiliate link to you. Now you can promote billions of Amazon products through your website.

Every product which you will promote will have your embedded affiliate link. Now when a reader land on your website, go through your content, and if you provide them a solution to their problem, they will click on your link; that link takes them to Amazon, and once they purchase the product, you will get a commission.

Now, this is the one example of Amazon and billions of products on it but think about the trillions of products that are available today.

You can join as many programs as you want, and promote through your website and earn a commission for you. The best part is most of the programs are free to join.

Below is a diagram outlining the process of how to earn money through affiliate marketing.

There are now over 4 BILLION people online as of 2019 (YOUR audience), and these people are going to search engines, social media, or visiting websites for help all the time.

These people are looking for information, solutions to problems, and buying stuff.

People come to your website and help these “audiences” by offering them information about what they are looking for. You will be “helping” these people, recommending products/services they can benefit from, and you earn affiliate commissions ($$) as a result.

There are over 550 MILLION products/services that you can promote as an affiliate marketer. The opportunity is incredible, and it is only growing!

Is Affiliate Marketing Right For Me?

I can understand your dilemma if you are a total beginner and never heard of affiliate marketing. But I am sure affiliate marketing is one of the best options to earn money if you are a beginner online.

If you are still not sure, think about the following points, and it will make the picture clear for you.

1. No Cost To Very Little Investment

The best part of affiliate marketing is that you can start your business without investing a single dime in it. Many business modules need huge upfront investments even to start it, but your affiliate marketing does not need to spend massive investment at the beginning.

Also, it will be useful for you to test the water before jumping into it, whether affiliate marketing is for you or not.

Sometimes it happens that you may invest huge money in a business, Still, later on, you find that you are not enjoying what you are doing, then you’ll not only find that you wasted your time and effort, but you have also lost hundreds or even thousands of dollars.

But if you are serious about blogging and want to set up a lifelong business for your family and yourself, you need to invest in it.

Again, the beauty of affiliate marketing is that setting up an online business costs you much less than building an offline business.

While setting your online business, you need to invest in a domain name, hosting, and training, but the money you spend, get returned to you manifold if you work hard and persistently on your website.

2. No Need To Create Your Product

As an affiliate marketer, you become the bridge between buyer and seller, and this can be very rewarding.

Creating your product can also be very profitable, but you need to have the necessary infrastructure and knowledge of how to create your product. As a newbie, you should concentrate on promoting through your affiliate marketing.

3. Affiliate Marketing Is A Newbie-Friendly

As I said earlier, affiliate marketing is straightforward to learn and follow and can earn you a good commission if you are helpful to your readers.

If you continue to share your thoughts, views, suggestions, insights, opinions, and advice to them, they will turn into your follower and a continual source of income for you.

You need to create quality content, YouTube videos, and product reviews regularly. If you can do this, affiliate marketing will be very lucrative to you.

4. Spend More Time With Family

 

 

Stay at home, mom or dad; your family is your primary concern, so affiliate marketing is the best option for you. You can work on your sites when you are free and give equal time to your family and business.

Also, you can do your blogging from any place without any restrictions. If you have a computer and a useful internet, you are good to go.

5. Create Social Status And Financial Independence For You

As a stay at home mom, though your family respect you, creating your online business, and serving the society with your knowledge, creating and promoting YouTube videos gives a social status and financial independence to you.

It has many aspects to this besides social and financial independence as it gives you more confidence, self-respect, and your voice on different social subjects.

So, by now, you must want to start your blog, but do not know where to start? I can understand your problem. With everyday online scam stories, it is essential to do your due diligence.
