My #1 Affiliate Marketing Tip
This is the year when you’re finally going to meet your financial goals when it comes to your blog’s earnings.
I can feel it!
After a coaching session with my business mentor,
I set some pretty high goals for myself and instead of letting the fear of failure creep in,
I immediately started to think: “What do I need to actually do to make my goals happen?“.
So, whenever I set a big goal,
I always work my way back to see what needs to happen in order for me to achieve whatever it is that I set my mind to.
A big part of that is figuring out how to increase my affiliate earnings
(which have been pretty good recently, with May bringing me $3,345 in affiliate sales alone)
so I thought I would the share #1 strategy I will be implementing over the next few months to make that happen.
THE #1 AFFILIATE STRATEGY THAT YOU NEED TO IMPLEMENT
Are you a brand new to affiliate marketing, I recommend reading this detailed guide on How To Make Your First $1,000 In Affiliate Sales.
But, if you’re ready to take your affiliate income to the next level,
and you want to escape the overwhelm of having to promote 100 different things at once,
you’re going to love this affiliate marketing tip.
My #1 (proven and tested!) affiliate marketing tip is to champion one product at a time.
This product (or service) must be something that you truly believe in and that you know that your audience wants and needs.
(If you don’t know where to start, check out my Affiliate Programs Masterlist.)
Once you have found that product,
you want to make your entire affiliate marketing strategy about it.
Start writing posts reviewing it,
including links in older relevant posts,
create an email funnel just for that one product,
mention it on social media each week and so on.
(P.S.: Don’t worry, not even your most loyal followers won’t see everything you post at all times, so it won’t be considered spammy.
Plus, the more your audience hears about a product, the more intrigued they will be to check it out and eventually buy it using your link.)
The idea here is that,
instead of overwhelming your audience with 100 recommendations at once, or doing a poor job at promoting something,
because you’re trying to share 10 things in the same blog post, this strategy gives you a clear “focus point”.
PROOF THAT THIS STRATEGY WORKS
As I mentioned,
this is a proven strategy and it makes sense mathematically as well because only 20% of your efforts will bring you 80% of your results.
This is called the Pareto principle and it applies to business and blogging too.
As a result,
even if at the moment I promote quite a few things on my blog/social media,
around 80% of my affiliate income comes from the same 20% of the affiliate programs I’m involved in.
A big part of me making my first $1,000 blogging,
back in the day,
was actually due to a $25 eBook that I loved,
promoted and championed on my blog.
I have a full case study about what I did to promote this eBook included in my
that you can access to for $15 off using the code “AFFILIATESUPERHERO”.
You’re curious to see how I get the work done behind the scenes and need some help promoting the things you’re an affiliate for,
you’re going to love this bundle!
And the same strategy still works today!
So, instead of spending hours of her precious time on trying to promote 20 different products,
she championed one product that she really believed it at it worked!
So, to recap, here’s what you have to do to increase your affiliate earnings in 2019:
- Find one product to focus on, and champion it through the year.
- Make sure it’s something that your audience needs.
- (If you’re already part of affiliate programs, see where you made the most sales so far, and push that product/service even more.)
- Create as much high-quality content around that one product as you can.
- Don’t be spammy, just find ways to introduce it and describe it to your audience.
- Create pins, have webinars, write emails, mention it in every relevant blog post and so on.
