Affiliate Marketing for Beginners | 3 Steps To Finding The Best Offers To Promote

Affiliate Marketing for Beginners | 3 Steps To Finding The Best Offers To Promote

– There are virtually unlimited products and offers out there that you
can promote as an affiliate, which is super cool
because affiliate marketing is one of the best ways
to make money online. But the flip side of that
is that with so many things you can promote, it’s
easy to get overwhelmed with deciding what exactly
you want to promote and how you should be promoting it. Well, hey, I’m LeahRae
from, social media marketing expert
and online entrepreneur, and in this video we will
be walking you through our three super simple
steps to figure out exactly what the best affiliate
marketing offers are for you to promote and the best
way to promote them so you can start making
money as soon as possible. (upbeat music) Alright, so exactly how do
you find the best affiliate offers to promote and what is
the best way to promote them? As we dive into this,
I want to let you know that we have awesome
videos like this coming out all the time to help you
build your online business, to create your brand, to grow
your audience, generate leads, and make sales, so make sure to subscribe, hit the little bell
button for notifications so that we can help you reach your goals. So first, let’s talk about your brand. Your brand is really important
when it comes to building a sustainable, full-time
income in affiliate marketing. Now, why is that? Think about the way
affiliate marketing works. You make a recommendation
on a product or service, and then people make a decision to buy based on your recommendation. They click your affiliate link, and when they pull out their
credit card to purchase, and you get credit for the referral. So, the key piece to this
formula is that people trust your recommendation. And this is where your “brand” comes in. You want to build a brand and a reputation as the go-to person
for a specific subject. So, for example, we have built a brand around helping people start
and build online businesses. Others have built brands
around beauty and makeup, or technology, photography,
gaming, essential oils, weight loss, ketogenic dieting, and even things like
knitting and quilting. The people who are the
most successful at this, at what they do, build their brands around
a specific subject. So think about what you want
people to come to you for. What do you want to help people do? What is it that you have
a love or passion for that you would enjoy
teaching others about? Now, it’s really good if
you already have some level of expertise in that
subject, but honestly, you only really need an interest in it. Why is that? It’s because what people
are looking for the most is information from
people who are like them. For example, if I’m
looking for information about DSLR cameras, I really don’t care what a professional
photographer would say about it, or how they would use it. What I really wanna
know is what other moms are saying about a camera. For example, is it
durable enough to survive a family with young kids? Is it easy to use? Does it take good pictures without having to adjust
a bunch of settings? What features do other moms
use and find most helpful? Is it easy to carry around in a purse? Things like that. And you don’t need to be an
expert to tell me those things. You just need to be someone
who can talk to moms about what they want to know. For example, you may be a pet lover, and you may want to help new pet owners train their new pets. If you are a homeschooling parent, you could help parents
interested in homeschooling. If you are an accountant, you could help small business owners become more efficient with
their bookkeeping and expenses. Or if you love the idea
making money online and learning more about internet
marketing gets you excited, you can share some of the
cool stuff you are learning with others looking to get started. So step number one, what
you want to do is write down a list of a few options for yourself. Options that you could see
yourself getting excited about, you could see yourself talking
about on a regular basis. Once you’ve done that,
you’ll be able to narrow down you list and make your choice. Number two, once you’ve
figured out your brand, it’s just a matter of figuring
out what products, services, or opportunities are out there
that relate to that brand that you can promote as an affiliate. Think about what kinds of
training, equipment, tools, support will help your
audience along their journey. So if helping people with
their pets is your thing, then a new pet owner could
use all kinds of stuff, physical products, like a
crate or kennel, training pads, reward treats, collars, leashes, chew toys, et cetera,
et cetera, et cetera. And while those are nice and
you should write them down, as I’ve previously mentioned in our “$100 a day affiliate
marketing blueprint” video, you’re going to get much
higher commission rates and make more money with digital products. So how about looking for
an online obedience class that you could recommend to your audience? 1-800-Petmeds has an affiliate program, has an affiliate program,,,, they all
have affiliate programs, and there are tons of
online pet training courses that are out there that
you can become an affiliate of as well and make 20%
to 40% commissions on. Now it’s time to do some Googling. Obviously, it makes sense if
you can simply refer people to products and programs
that you are already using and like, but you may need
to seek out new products or programs and try them out to see if you can recommend them. When you find something
you want to recommend, you can often snoop
around on their website and see if they have an affiliate program or just do a Google search for an affiliate program for that company. If you don’t find anything, you can contact the company independently and ask them if you can be an affiliate and help promote their products. If it is a physical product, you can always use
Amazon’s affiliate program. If you want to learn more
about Amazon’s program and how to sign up, we covered that in our
introductory video about “What Is Affiliate Marketing.” I’ll make sure that it’s one
or the video pop up for you within this screen at
the end of this video so you can just click it to
check it out if you want to. But the best products to
promote are going to be things that center around the
brand that you are building and that have a common theme. That’s really the key. Because when you build a
brand and build an audience of people who have a common interest, that’s when people keep
coming back to you over and over again and buy
stuff through your links time and time again. Now if you want our
recommendation for an awesome training program teaching you how to build an affiliate marketing business
that also comes with a great affiliate opportunity, simply

Hi leah! I know we often talk about finding what it is about the company or product being promoted. I've been with mca for two years and I have still not been able to bring in leads. I promote the benefits for mca because they are great benefits, but still not much in leads because of issues that had been in the news about mca. And a lot of the big promotional leaders including my sponsor left mca. I stayed because I like the company and what they offer. I'm just not sure if my ability to gain followers is enough.

Really get a lot of good information and ideas from your videos Leah and appreciate this one especially. Keep it simple. Love it. A process that can be done over and over again.
