Email marketing: This is best in small doses. You don't want any partners sending out bulk emails to customers who aren't interested in your products or services, but with proper consideration for who's receiving the email, this could be an effective method. For instance, if you sell design tools, you might reach out to marketing agencies and ask, if they're working with a specific client on a design project, whether they might consider sending a URL from your site within the body of the email. This could help their clients leverage your tools to create higher-quality content, while giving agencies an added source of income.
To make money from affiliate marketing, you need to ascertain that the product has a high demand. No matter how much efforts you make, you might make little or no sales, it totally depends on the demand of the product. You need to know if it is what your audience really needs. If you manage to get a reasonable amount of traffic on your site, then you can run a small online survey to get input from visitors.
Hi Ray, I enjoy receiving your emails but I never thought you were sending anything with spammy content. How did you change it and what are you trying to be careful of? Is it just the products you promote in your emails? Some of them are too expensive to consider if I’m honest with you. But I always learn something from you about internet marketing. Thanks, and keep up with good job.
I have yet to implement all the tools you have shared and recommended in this article, but I really like the way you explain things. It is written in a very easy-to-read style, and ho hype or exaggerated comments. Now I have to get busy and take the necessary time to study, and implement, your recommendations. Thank you for all that you have shared.
However, it's important to note, there is a minimum sales target you need to reach to get paid — $300 per month (if you make less than that, your earnings will stay in your account until you reach that benchmark). If you feel your website, blog, or social channel is visited on a regular basis by prospects who might be interested in creating their own website on a hosting platform, this could be a good program for you, but if you're unsure if you can meet the mimimum sales target for a while, you might want to reconsider.
Hi Fergus, there may be a lot to learn but you don’t have to try to take everything in so quickly. In fact many people are overwhelmed by the availability of information. You can just start a simple blogging platform and gradually build it as you learn, then the amount of affiliate commissions will gradually scale up accordingly. You might want to start considering it too. Any questions don’t hesitate to get back to me. Thanks for your comment!
Hi Dilip, that’s exactly how I started my internet marketing journey. I had a full-time job and I only had 3 hours max. each day to update my websites, sometimes none at all, tried to write a blog while commuting (using Evernote). You don’t have to rush into it, you could start right now, and try to log on to your web platform even just for 10 minutes every day (every single day, that’s the key!) You’ll soon get used to the environment? Give it a try and see what you think. Any more questions don’t hesitate to get back to me. Thanks for leaving your comment.
Leadpages also offers an option for affiliates to send referrals to attend a Leadpages webinar with standard commissions paid for any sale generated from the webinar. However, Leadpages requires you to get at least 150 people to sign up (but not necessarily attend) each webinar. Leadpages also offers affiliates the ability to view blog posts and videos on Leadpages’s site, again with the standard commission paid for any sales.

Thank you very much. I signed up to a few here and I am very grateful to you for making all of this valuable information available – you have saved me time. I could not sign up to Shopify as it just kept on reloading page to SIGN IN and not create a new account – confusing. VigLink does not allow a new account sign up either.. Rakuten did not say if they charge to be apart of their affiliate prog and actually there is no sign up for that option. If you can help me with these three prog’s… Read more »
