See it says, Join, Advertise, Earnand basically you’ll just wanna joinand one of the thingsit will ask you for isit will ask you to put in a website. Now, do you have a Facebook profile?My guess is yes. Or if you don’t, you can createa Facebook profile for free. That’s your website, okay?Very easy. Also you know, I’ve heard of some peoplejust putting in random websitesthat have a lot of visitorsin their niche and Iguess Amazon doesn’t checkbut keep in mind, your YouTube channel,you can set up a YouTube channel for free. Your Facebook profile is freeand you can set these things upand use them as your website. Okay, very easy. Now, Amazon, you don’tmake a lot of money. For purposes of demonstration,I could you know, say I’mselling this book “Anathem”which is about $20 book. If you earn 10% of thatwhat are you making?Two bucks. You’re not gonna becomea millionaire, selling,recommending books to peopleunless you’re making more than 10%. So the affiliate networkthat I really like is called ClickBankand you can see ClickBank right here. There’s a lot of affiliate networksbut ClickBank is the most trustworthyand the oldest affiliate network around. It’s been around for 21 years,it’s based in Boise, Idahoand this is the network that Imade my first commissions on,many people have madetheir first commissions onand it’s also been the affiliate networkthat I currently makemost of my money with. Now, if we click here, AffiliateMarket place, right there,we’ll see all of the productsthat you can sell on acommission-only basis. So let’s click thissearch icon, right hereand see how many products we can find. Okay, now you’ll seethere’s over 4,500 productsin the Marketplace. Let’s zoom in. So this gives you a lot of optionsof what do you wanna sell. Okay, what do you wanna sellto make a lot of money with?Okay and you’ll see they tellyou how much money you’ll makeif somebody buys what you’reselling as an affiliate. You see, $37 if you sell this. $56 if you sell this. $41 if you sell this. There’s a lot of money to be made sellingthese different products. Now, to find something you resonate with,you kind of wannachoose, what I recommend,I personally sellbusiness-opportunity-type productsbut what I recommend you dois, let’s just get startedon Amazon, okay?As I said the way you make big money iswith another affiliatenetwork outside of Amazonbut let’s just get startedwith Amazon for the time beingfor demonstration purposes. Is that okay?Is that okay?Okay, cool. Sorry, I didn’t hearyou there for a second. So back to Amazon. Now, I’m gonna go to amazon. comand once again, let’ssay I wanna start offwith advertising this book,“Anathem” which is a bookI’m reading right now,it’s a really good bookand we’re gonna search this on Amazonand look it up. So we’ll see, okay, well, it’s $9. Okay, $9 right here. So I’m gonna click on thebook and what you’ll see iswhen you’re in, acceptedfor an affiliate network,you see this little bar?It says, Amazon AssociatesSiteStripe, right here. This is where I’ll get my affiliate link. So what I’ll do is I’llclick Get Link Text. Right there. And you’ll see it says,Text Link created below. Now, this is my affiliate linkwhich I will use to sell this book. This is the link peopleneed to click on this linkand buy the book and I make money. Okay, does that make sense?People click on thislink, they buy the bookand I make money. So we can look at the full link here. I’m not gonna go intowhat the full link isbut this carries, basicallythe link carries informationthat tells, the wayaffiliate marketing works isthe link containsinformation that tells Amazonthat’s the personclicked on my link versusthey searched for it online or what not. And that link is in right here, the tag. So that this stuff tells thembut we’re just gonna grabthe short link, copy it. Now, I have my link. I joined an affiliatenetwork, I selected a productand we’re going to move on to postingabout how we can actually,you know, get in some peopleto come to my website. Okay, so now there area few ways to get peopleto come to your link. Okay, you will already have access to themnow, do you communicatewith anybody digitally?My guess is yes,you do. You probably use text messages. That’s a way you can getyour link out to people. You use email,that’s a way you can getyour link out to people. You use Instagram,that’s a way you can getyour link out to people. Do you ever post comments on YouTube?That’s a way you can getyour link out to people. Facebook, that’s a way you canget your link out to people. All of these methods are waysyou can get your link out to people. Now, most of the timeyou’re probably having very like,just you know, you’re talkingabout random, social male,female, social dynamicsin your life. That’s cool but we’re talkingabout making money hereso that’s what we’ll need tobe talking to people aboutin our emails. Now, let’s say I’m recommending this book. The first place I couldstart is through email. I want people to click on my link. I could send an emailto a couple of my closefriends, let’s say,you know, or just people I know. I could send one to my friend Carlos,I’m not actually gonna typein my friends’ emails herejust so you don’t email all my friendsbut I could type in my friendsand I could write somethinglike, book recommendation. And I could say, you know,I remember you asked mefor a sci-fi book recommendationand I’m reading a really good oneright now. I absolutely love it. Check it out. And I put my link there, see?There’s my link. So I wrote a little short personal emailin the way I normally communicateand then I just put my initials. So that’s a way to getyour link out to people. You could send an email to people that,whose emails you have and in this caseI’m sending an email to Carloswho I know is interestedin science fiction books. That would be a good way tostart affiliate marketing. Another way to startaffiliate marketing isI could go on my Facebook andI have, a lot of the peopleI’m friends with on Facebookare, you know, like the futureand science fiction and all this stuff. I’m not going on my Facebook page. I’m going on my personal Facebookbecause I wanna communicatewith people personally. Do you buy things from ads?Probably not. Do you ever buy things or see moviesor listen to music basedon other friends of yourspersonal recommendations?My guess is yeah. Again, if we want peopleto buy from our link,it needs to be somewhat ofa personal recommendation. That’s why I’m postingon my personal profile. Now, if you don’t wanna sellanything, that’s cool, okay?But again, the other methodsof getting your linkout there are expensive,they cost money. So we’re doing this for free. Now if you are interestedin going deeper into affiliate marketingand paid advertising andthe art of copywriting,I suggest, I’m gonna havemy assistant put up a linkto my playlist called TheArt of Copywriting herewhich will go over how youcan use paid advertisingto actually make money with marketing. Okay, so here we go, create a post. I’ll just say,really good sci-fi bookI’m reading. Mindgasmsevery day so far. Check it out. Neal Stephenson is a genius. Now, I’m not spelling correctlybecause I’m doing personal communication. That’s what sells. Again, if you look, ifyou’re writing somethingthat looks like an ad,nobody is gonna buy, ever. Ever. Nobody wants to buy from ads. Nobody wants to get rapedand that’s what buyingfrom an ad feels like,it feels like your wallet is being raped. You wanna have, you wannafeel like you’re in loveand a personal recommendationfeels like you’re in love. So here it is, here’s my post. Very simple post. So then, I just share itand that’s how it works. Okay?Then, I’ll just post it right here. Now, that is how to startaffiliate marketing in a nutshell. I hope this video was helpful.
