In my opinion Affiliate Marketing is one of the biggest keys to earning online…

I just created my first $5,153.62 month in income using Affiliate Marketing and I would like to share how I did this…

Of course there are many different ways you can use affiliate marketing to create traffic to generate leads, which in turn if done right will generate income…

There is blogging which is a free method of generating leads and will also lead to generating income if the blog is monetized in a way that sends people to a specific affiliate marketing target.

For example: To monetize your blog using affiliate marketing tactics, you would hyperlink keywords and send people to a related product. Let me show you what I mean. Since this part of my post is about blogging, I would probably send someone to my EN Blog in this way. When you hover over ‘EN Blog’ with your cursor you will see that you will be redirected to my affiliate marketing link going to my Empower Network capture page, thus giving me the opportunity to generate affiliate marketing income from traffic going to my blog…

Here is another affiliate marketing example:

How about using YouTube for your affiliate marketing as another tool. In this case you could incorporate your affiliate marketing links in the video as well as in the video’s description. Be sure to put your link at the beginning of the description so that your viewer will see it first. Example: http://virgilcook.com/empower-network This video will demonstrate to you how to use affiliate marketing…

Other examples would be using affiliate marketing in articles, forums, Twitter, Facebook, Social Media Sites, banner ads, solo ads, etc…

You can use affiliate marketing to make money by selling your own products or what I like most of all, and that is selling other peoples products… Now, I don’t mean just go out and sell any product that has the ability to make you money…

What I mean is to join someones affiliate marketing program for products that you already use or are very familiar with. The reason for me saying that is this. If you market as an affiliate products that you know nothing about and they turn out to be junk, your personal brand and your ability to earn with affiliate marketing will be irreparably damaged…

The people that know, like, and trust you will decide that you are just trying to make money off of them and are not interested in helping them at all…they will be gone faster than a rocket headed for the moon…

There are also many different kinds of affiliate marketing venues…

You can normally sign up as an affiliate for anyone that is selling a product through places like Clickbank, but again, remember what I said about promoting something you know nothing about… You can earn all different rates of commissions, from 25% up to 75%…

Again, I recommend products from people like Jonathan Budd, Mike Dillard, Mark Hoverson, Daegan Smith, Matt Lloyd, and many others. I have worked with some of these people for many years and others for at least a year. I have used many of each ones products as well. I have spent thousands on products over the course of my learning to market…

There is one affiliate marketing program that I prefer above all others and that is one of Matt Lloyd’s programs. Matt Lloyd was earning about $700 a month about 13 months ago and is now generating over $150k per month. Matt had this great idea to invite affiliate marketers to become partners in marketing his products and pay them 90% commissions.

I thought to myself, now this is how affiliate marketing should be for making money online.

Another lesson I have learned is that it does not matter what you promote, if it does not pay a good chunk of change, it will take you a long time to earn a decent amount of money online. What I mean is, if you are promoting something for let’s say $40 and you are earning a commission of 75%. That means you will make a $30 commission. How many sales would you have to make to generate $5k a month? A lot! As a matter of fact it would take you 166.66 sales to generate that kind of monthly income.

Let’s say that you had the opportunity as an affiliate marketer to join a Partner Program like Matt’s and you earned 90% commissions from products like his My Online Business Empire (MOBE) for 90% of $97 monthly = $87.30…

OR how about this? You earn a $1200 commission on one of Matt’s higher ticket programs, and Matt does all the follow ups, phone sales, etc. and all you have to do is send traffic?

How many of those sales would you have to make to generate $5k a month? Less than 5…

So, how did I create my $5,153.62 month of affiliate marketing income in August of 2012?

As an affiliate marketer, I participate in product launches from the leaders like I mentioned earlier. Well I just completed a product launch with Jonathan Budd and Mark Hoverson for their newest product called Futuristic Marketing. My commissions for that launch totalled $4,060. That was from making 15 sales… The rest was from residual commissions earned from other opportunities…

You can do this too. You will notice that I have hyperlinked my keyword (affiliate marketing) several times in this post to several different places for you to get an idea of how to monetize your blog posts and of course to familiarize yourself with some of the awesome products that I promote.

These are just a few. I would not normally suggest that you link more than one product to a single post to keep from mixing people up. However I wanted to show you the different ways you can generate income. As an affiliate marketer myself, I hope the information about affiliate marketing I have given you will show you how you can generate income if you are not already or even more if you are already doing some of this…
