One of the biggest potential earners I use in making money online is affiliate marketing.  

Over the past several years I have managed to generate as much as $100 in income in just under a week using affiliate links. 

One of the biggest reasons I love affiliate marketing is because it allows me to share products and services that I use regularly with my readers who may be interested in them as well.  

When my readers click on the provided affiliate link and purchase the recommended product or service, I receive a certain percentage of that sale.

And the best part about affiliate marketing is, you can get started immediately. You also don't need to invest any money or store any merchandise. 

However, you do need to understand the basics of creating and using affiliate links if you want to become successful at creating potential unlimited income from it.  

For most of us, it's fairly easy to recommend and share a product or service that we are passionate about. The hard part is getting others to click on that link and purchase the product or service you are recommending continuously.

If you want to succeed at affiliate marketing you must be willing to: 

Give Your Readers a Reason to Trust Your Recommendations -  If you want your readers to purchase your recommendation, you must first and foremost earn their trust. Give them a glimpse of the real you and the challenges you have faced in your life. Your readers need to know that they can relate and vice versa. 

When your readers feel like they know you and can trust your judgment, they may feel more confident in knowing that a product or service that you recommend is also trustworthy.  Even if your reader wasn't sure before, they may decide that your recommendation is worth the investment. 

Just remember, your trust means being honest with your readers, so you want to recommend only the products and services you truly believe in. If you try to base your recommendations on just anything, you risk losing that trust and your readers. 

You're Not the Only Affiliate Marketer Recommending Your Favorite Products or Services - You have got to be willing to stand out from the crowd if you want to win your readers over and earn their trust. 

So how do you do just that? 

By including exclusive bonuses that are a part of the product or service. 

You could even include your own products or services if you want to include additional resources for profit. If you want to keep things much simpler, you could include a How-To guide or personal note with your reader's affiliate-related purchase. 

If you want to take it to the next level, you could include a personalized video that includes a demonstration of the product or service you are recommending to them. You could even provide answers to any questions they may have about the product or service they are interested in. Then keep in touch with them and make sure everything is going great long after their purchase. 

Focus on additional features about the product or service that no one else has provided online and share them with your readers. If you have several products that relate to one another, group them as a recommended set to your readers. 

If you can provide those affiliated product links through one online retailer,  you'll give your readers a simplified shopping experience that doesn't have them visiting several websites to purchase the recommended products. 

Show Your Readers What The Product or Service is All About - It's reassuring when your readers can see the product you are recommending and how to use it. Creating a video that shows you opening the product and using it, gives your readers a chance to see the product you are promoting and an inside look at how it will help them. Social media platforms like YouTube, Facebook, Tiktok, and Instagram all offer video creation tools that are fairly simple to use even if you are a beginner in videography

Plus, when you use platforms like YouTube to upload your affiliate-related videos, you are increasing your earning potential through traffic that sees your video.  

Don't Spread Your Product Love Too Thin - One of the worst things you can do to your readers is make them choose between two very similar products or services that you love. For example, you use and love two brands of daily facial moisturizer. Instead of making your readers choose, you need to decide on which moisturizer you love the best and promote that one only. 

Forcing your readers to decide between two very similar products can result in not earning a commission from that product's affiliate link because they didn't know which one to choose!  

Affiliate marketing can be one of the greatest tools in creating income online, but just like any business, it requires patience and understanding if you want to continue earning a profit that pays you consistently. 

All you have to do is be willing to learn.
