– If you’re watching this video,there’s a good chance that you wanna makea little bit more money,
you work a nine to five joband you might be skeptical
and think that everybodywho ever tells you how to
make money on the internetis running a scam or trying
to sell you something. Hopefully, this video can
change your mind about thatbecause I’m basically just gonna tell youwhat I did on the internet that helps memake thousands of dollars a monthand I don’t really have
an ulterior motive herebeyond wanting you to
watch my other videosand subscribe to my YouTube channel. And for those of you who are uninitiated,there are a lot of people
who use their YouTube channelor their podcast or even their blogwhere they write articles to
make hundreds of dollars a dayin affiliate marketing
and it’s passive incomebecause they’re doing the work upfrontand even six months or a year,as long as what they’re talking aboutis relevant to somebody,they’re still making money. There are YouTube videos on this channelthat still make me money, not only on adsbut literally because they sell products,whether it’s affiliate
products for someone elseor something that I made,and that’s what I wanna
teach you about today. How to use your content on the internetusing free platforms and social mediato make hundreds of dollars a dayselling somebody else’s product. That’s what affiliate market isand we’re gonna go
through it step by step. So if you’re into that,
keep watching this video. If not, I’ll catch you on the next one. Let’s get into it. Hey everybody, this is Roberto Blake,helping you create
something awesome today. Welcome back to the channel. If you’re new here, my
name is Roberto Blake,a lot of people know me
in the YouTube space,I’m a creative entrepreneur,
I’m a public speakerin events like social media
marketing world and VidConand today I want to talk to you aboutone of the ways that I
make passive income online. I’ve done a couple of videos about this,teaching people different methods,whether it’s selling
your own digital product,an online course, but today I wanna focusspecifically on affiliate marketingbecause it’s probably
the most accessible thingto the far majority of youeven if you have a nine to five job. It might sound absurd but
it’s actually very reasonableto make an extra $100 a dayin passive income if you do it right. It’s not something that just
anybody can do overnight. Yes, you will have to learn
how to market yourself,create content and build an audience. If you are not ready and
prepared to learn new skills,leverage social media
platforms, and build an audiencethat can help you make that extra money,give you a little bit of side income,away from the day job, a little
bit more financial freedom,that’s something it requires work. It’s not for people who are lazy,it’s not for people who wanna
do get rich quick schemes,it’s not for people like that. So if that’s someone you identify as,you need to click off
of this video right now. If you’re ready to do the
work and reap benefit from itover and over again later, stay tuned. Let’s cut to the chase on
the good part, $100 a day. You know why you can make $100 a daywith affiliate marketing?There are programs out
there where companiessell a product and the commissionon the sale for that product is so goodthat’s either $100 upfront
for those commission salesor it’s something like $50 or $30,which means you have to makebetween one and three
sales to get close to $100. And there are plenty of them out there. I’ll give you some examples right now. With Bluehost, I think
it starts out at $50,I’m at a higher tier
to where I do 85 a salebecause I can talk
about building websites. There are a lot of peoplewho are starting online businesses,I can give them tutorials and trainingand then I’ve worked it out to whereI can also offer a discount
to anybody who usesmy affiliate link for
that particular thing. So for me, one sale with
Bluehost, $85 commissions. That’s pretty straightforward. Epidemic Sound, I’m a YouTuber
so I have a lot of peoplewho watch some of my videos
about how to grow on YouTube. Every time someone does
a 30-day free trialwith Epidemic Sound, that
is a $30 commission for mejust for giving them the linkof how to use the same background musicthat you’re hearing now in my video,how they can use royalty
free background musicon their YouTube video. The value that I’m providing to peopleis they know about a resource
that they didn’t knowabout before to replicate the successor results that I have. It’s basically just being
a resource for peopleand giving them some kind of valuefor something they would
probably buy on their own anyway. The difference is you get a commission. When I was a kid, I loved selling things. Even when I made no money at it,I was the kind of kid
that would go into Walmartand would see how many
electronics I could selland I would actually try to outsellthe sales people on the
floor just because I could. As a teenager, I did this with Best Buy. I really had that much of a passionfor salespersonship and the gift of gaband just knowing that I was usefulbecause I think that psychologically,I validate myself by how
useful I am to other people. I don’t know if that’s
a good or a bad thingbut it’s been a very profitable thingto think of myself in that way. Now imagine if that entire time,because I was helping sell
a product for a company,they had been giving me a commission. Now for a lot of people,
they’re in situationswhere they get a salaryand they get a commission when they sell. The difference with
affiliate marketing is this,you’re just signing up and
putting in your email addressand your payment informationand then you can be part of
the sales force of a company. The good news for them,
they don’t pay your salary,they don’t pay your healthcare,and they don’t have a lot
of obligations toward you. The good news for you,
there’s no barrier to entry,there is really not that
much of a vetting processand you can start making money right awayas long as you can hustle
and you can sell for them. And you don’t have to build
a product of your own. Granted, you only get a small portionor a cut of all of the money
that they will make on thatbut you also don’t have
to own the platform,or have a lot of responsibility
for anything going on. That’s why affiliate
marketing isn’t a scamand that’s why it’s win-winfor a lot of brands and companies. But Roberto, if it’s so easy,
why doesn’t everyone do it?Well, first of all, not everybody
is internet or tech savvy,the other thing is not everyonehas an area of expertise or passion. I know because I was a web designerabout a lot of online productsand also the needs of an online businessso since I am an online business owner,I can recommend everything
that I use for my business,and the majority of it
has affiliate links. Whether it’s the conference callsthat I set up for my coaching
clients with zoon. us,there’s an affiliate link for that. Whether it’s the mail
marketing systems that I usethat helps me have my newsletterand also helps me to
re-market and sell my coursesto the people on my newsletteror my other digital products or services. Guess what, there’s an affiliate linkfor that same system that I use. Whether it’s the apps that
I use for certain projects,whether it’s the invoicing system,there is all of these products that I useand the companies would love
for me to advocate for themand they don’t wanna have
to make that complicated. They wanna give me a commission
for helping make the sale,I want to make the sale
and make some extra moneyor passive income recommending somethingI already use every single dayand the average consumer
would love to knowthat somebody is revealing
part of their processor giving them tips or adviceand that if it’s something you’re doing,then they wanna do it tooand they were gonna spend
that money somewhere. You might as well benefit
for helping them outand this is why content marketing,this is why building a
podcast, a YouTube channel,a blog, an Instagram page is so valuableand why it is a big
concentration of the contentthat I do on this YouTube channelis helping you get from zero followersto 10,000 followers in the
platform of your choice. And so, you see the beauty of
this is you don’t even needa big audience because it’s
down to making the one sale. It’s down to making the one sale. Now there are other affiliate programsthat do percentage commissions. Primer example is a
company called TubeBuddy. I’m a super affiliate with them,I’m also a brand ambassador for themand they sponsor content on
this channel fairly regularlybut I also get a 50% commission
recurring on lifetime salesfor the YouTube browser
plug-in called TubeBuddy,which is an amazing deal for me. When you think about it, it means thatas long as somebody came from this channeland used my tips and adviceand then shows to sign up for the product,that 50% of whatever
the fees are associatedmonthly with their account are somethingthat I benefit from for
facilitating that relationship. It is a fantastic deal
for the company and for meand it incentivizes loyalty. So if you can find in your niche,whatever it is, products
and services that haveeither percentages and recurring
revenue attached to them,or high payout flat rates of
50 or $100 or even higher,then you see it’s not unreasonablefor you to start making
$100 a day in passive incomewith affiliate marketing. So what do you need to be
able to accomplish that?Now that we’ve set up this frameworkand now that you understand
how making the money worksand why people will actually click on itand trust your information,let’s go to some basic things
you need to do right nowto get going with affiliate marketing. First of all, you need to identifywhat niche you’re in and
you need to start looking. Do your research in Google and find outwhat affiliate programs
exist for that niche. Take a look at the brands and the productsthat you use everyday for
whatever you’re doing,whether you’re doing fitness
or whether you’re doingwhatever it is you’re doing. And really look at that and
then look into the researchand see, do they have an affiliate deal?Type in the name of the brandand type in the words
affiliate program in Googleand it’s as simple as that
and you’ll find resultsfor the affiliate programs in
your niche or for a company. Is that easy. You know, most things are usuallyas simple as Googling them. Many of these affiliate programswill ask if you have a website,you usually should have a websiteif you wanna do affiliate marketingeven if it’s not gonna bethe primary place that you do that,it’s more likely for you to be approved. Now not every website does
this but a lot of them do. Amazon is the easiest place
to do affiliate marketingjust because even though
the percentages are very lowin terms of your commission on the sales,the thing is they have more productsand more variety of
categories than anyone elseand it’s a brand people trust. But you do usually need a websiteand they wanna know that you
have some decent traffic therein order for them to approve you. Now sometimes they’ll just approve youwith your social media accounts. So if you don’t have a website,just go ahead and try with
your social media accounts. You can always apply
again and use your websitein the future if you’re turned down. So that’s one of the
things you have to do. Like I said, I have an
affiliate link for Bluehost,making the point that again,
affiliate marketing is awesomeso if you need a website,
I have an affiliate linkfor Bluehost and they give
the members of this communitya rather large discount so if you just goto robertoblake. com/bluehost
or you use my link down below,or use the link here in
the info card, guess what?You’ll get a massive discount,
I’ll get a commissionand see, this is how
affiliate marketing works. Now when you have your websiteand you have your blog set
up, using a WordPress blog,the good news is you cannot onlyput these affiliate links in your post,you do have to disclose them but you alsocan make something called a resource page. And a resource page is
just a list of everythingthat you use for your businessand you can have affiliate links for that. So like I said, there’s a
massive amount of affiliate linksthat I use day to day in
terms of the resourcesfor this YouTube channel,primer example B&H Photo Video linksare in the descriptions
for all the camera gear. Anyone who wants to produce
the quality of content I use,then they’ll get the camera gearthat is behind this channel, right?Same thing for the podcast. So that’s an example of
how if you have a platform,whether it’s YouTube or podcasting,people wanna buy what produced
the results that you haveand you’re just being a
resource and linking to it. So that’s what I would start within terms of okay, so anyone
who does come to my siteknows what I’m using and what I haveand if they want it, I
get a commission, right?The other thing I would look atis can you make content
that’s helpful and usefulto people in your niche
that can directly relateto a product that you getan affiliate commission for or a service?So that’s something elseyou need to think about, content strategy. I get into that a lot here
on the YouTube channel,it’s something you might
wanna subscribe for. Making content in different platforms,if you have the time to do
it is going to be helpful. For many of you just starting a blogand writing like you know, on a weekend,writing three or five
articles to get you startedand then putting out one
or two articles a week,taking only 30 minutes to
an hour to write an article,that’s gonna be a good
place for you guys to start. And if you start with high
end affiliate productsthat have high commissions in your niche,or at least high percentages
like 20 or 30 or 50%of whatever the product sale is,then you’re closer to
making good money everydaymaking that $100 a day that
we talked about very quicklyeven with a small audience. If you can get them to be loyaland if you give good information. And again, as long as this
piece of content exists,there’s an opportunity
for it to make you money. By using your other social
media links and outletswhether that’s Facebook or
starting a Facebook group,starting a Facebook page, Instagramand putting it in your bio link,or if you get 10,000 subscribers,
followers in Instagram,swipe up, you get the
link out, or using IGTV. Whatever method you use, doing Twitter,whatever method you use,
you can link to this contentfrom your website, get it
in front of more eyeballsand use hashtags and
things in social mediato get traffic back to your websiteand then it’s more likely that peoplewill buy something from
your affiliate linksand you get to make that money. So having content to
distribute in social mediais actually really practical. And something you guys are underestimatingis writing articles,
posting them in LinkedInand in LinkedIn groups
where you have permissionand then getting that
traffic back to your website. People who you know, read those articlesand do these things in LinkedIntend to be more affluent and more willingto spend money on something. Everybody’s sleeping on
LinkedIn, big mistake. If you’re gonna do YouTube content,I would recommend doing
tutorials and product demosthat showcase why someone should use this,who it’s for, and whether
it’s a good deal or notand then recommend it. Also you could always
recommend alternatives,do comparison videos, versus videos,these are the types of contentthat usually convert
massively in terms of sales. So if you’re looking to do big saleswith affiliate marketing,
you wanna do it on YouTube. Those visual product demos
are a great way to go. Product reviews, comparison videos,absolutely are probably the best funnelfor making affiliate revenue from productswhen you do it on YouTube that way. Whether it’s written content with photosor whether it’s videos on YouTube,buyers guides, doing a
breakdown of all the thingspeople could buy, especially
either during a holidayor based around a certain tech releaseor back to school, like
the timing of those videosis actually really good
for affiliate marketingand you could do some of your best saleseither during back to school, during fall,or during the holidays. I mean, it’s a big deal. I’ve known people to have you know,ridiculous $10,000 a month paydaysfrom just hitting the right timewith the right content on buyers guides. One of the things I did
successfully back in the daywas I did laptop buyers guidesand this did really well for me in Amazon. Amazon had a cap out of $25
maximum payout on laptopsbut there would be these great monthswhere I was doing massive commissionsbecause of all these laptop sales. So it’s just something to think about. And like I said, if you have no audienceand you’re like Roberto,
I need an audienceto do all of these things. Roberto, I don’t understand marketingand you need that skill
to do all these things. The good news is there’s 1,000 free videoshere on the YouTube
channel that talk aboutentrepreneurship, marketing in differentsocial media platforms
like Instagram and YouTubeand also how to build a podcast. So if you’re saying that you don’t knowhow to do these things,you can always just
subscribe to the channel,it’s free content, you don’t
even have to buy a courseand you can learn how to
build an audience from zero. You can learn email
marketing, you can learnhow to do these things
and then you can makea little bit of extra money. It just means you might have
to watch a few of my videosinstead of whatever is on Netflix. And that’s the only price you
really have to pay for it. Time. And of course, the benefit to meis that I get new views and subscribersand if you use any of
the affiliate links downin the description below,the resources that I’ve talked about,I of course will benefit
from that monetarily. So it’s a win-win for everybodyand now you know how
affiliate marketing works. So now I think you are
ready to get startedas long as you are willing to hustleand you realize this will not
be an overnight success story. You are in a good position to wherethis can start making you a little bitof extra income on the
side and you can startto diversify your revenue streamsbecause there is no such
thing as job security anymoreand I think that’s becoming moreand more apparent to a lot of people. I’m not saying you have
to quit your day jobor you can’t want to
work a nine to five job,and I’m not trying to shame
anybody who has that situation. What I do know is a lot of peopleare having their circumstances
taken out of their hands. I’m seeing people everyday tell methat they have lost
their job out of nowhereor that the industry changedand they are scared of being pushed out. They’re getting older and maybe the placeisn’t valuing loyalty
and experience anymore,or unfortunately people
are having their healthpush them out of their
career field and their joband they still money to survive. So what I’m trying to do is I want peoplethat are in that situation
to have the informationthat’s going to help them get byor move to the next level and
have more financial freedomand more control over their lives. So if I’ve helped you do that today,then I feel like I did a good joband I feel like my mission is
closer to being accomplished. That actually brings me
to my question of the daybefore we close the video. Are you diversifying your revenue streamsor are you relying on
just one stream of income?I really want to know this
and I wanna understandwhere my audience is in
terms of those thingsso I can talk about it more. Because maybe it’s helpful
and if you have questionsabout passive income, or
you still have questionsabout affiliate marketing,drop those in the comment section too. I’ll try to reply to as many of themin the first hour, first
day, and first weekthat this video is up. So it’s another good reason to subscribeand hit notifications. Hopefully you guys enjoyed this video,I actually really do dig
getting into these topicsbecause I think it’s part
of what really helped mebe successful is learning how to selland understanding how digital commerceand the global economy is
accessible to almost everybody nowand I just think it’s a great
thing that gives more peopleopportunity and gives
them a fighting chance. Like this video if you like it,don’t forget to subscribe,
