One of the easiest ways to start making money online is through affiliate marketing. In today’s post I’m gonna talk about the process of making money from other people’s products. And I’m going to walk you through the best affiliate programs for beginners.
I want to talk to you about some of the best affiliate marketing programs for you to start out with and some strategy on how to get started. If you haven’t already heard one of the most popular affiliate programs Amazon Associates recently slashed their Commission rates. People are up in arms about it, because some commissions went from as high as 8 percent commission down to as low as 1% commission.
I am an Amazon associate,however for me Amazon was never one of my favorite affiliate programs. So today I’m going to skip Amazon completely and talk to you about some other affiliate marketing programs that you can get started with.
Now if you’re here and you’re not really clear on what affiliate marketing is, simply put it’s the process of you recommending someone else’s products and receive a commission for doing so.
Anyways here are my best affiliate marketing programs for beginners.
1) Web hosting providers
This is a huge market to get in to as every website owner needs hosting. One of the major benefits of promoting hosting providers is that it is recurring income, whether it is monthly or yearly. You don’t have to limit yourself to just one provider, you can easily promote several providers at the same time.
You could create blog posts or videos about the providers. A good example is a top 5 blog post or video where you compare the 5 hosting providers, and you can stick your affiliate links in your post or beneath your video.
A few good options to start with are Bluehost, Siteground, Hostgator or Hostinger.
2) Autoresponder Services
Every online marketer needs an autoresponder service to contact his subscribers, so I probably don’t have to tell you that there is huge potential in this market. Most autoresponder services come with a monthly fee, so you can build up a monthly recurring income by promoting these services.
And again, you don’t have to limit yourself by only promoting one, you can easily promote several autoresponders at once.
You could create a blog post or video and compare 2 services with each other. An example would be Awebers VS Getresponse.
A few good options to start with are Convertkit, Aweber and Getresponse.
3) Page Builders
This is yet another great market to get in to as every online business owner makes use of a page builder, whether it is to create landing pages, sales pages or just a place where they keep their products. Most page builders will also come with a monthly fee so this is another way of building a passive income.
You can promote them by making a review blog post or video where you explain the pros and cons of the page builder that you are promoting. Or you could do top 5 or comparison videos if you wish to promote several page builders at the same time.
A few good options to start with are Clickfunnels, Beaverbuilder and Groovefunnels.
4) Video Marketing Software
In this day and age video marketing rules. So it goes without saying that this market is wide and open for you to find some good affiliate programs. And there is a wide variety of tools to choose from, such as screen capture software, video SEO software, video creation software and even webinar creation software.
Most of these tools come with a monthly or yearly subscription which means residual income for you.
A few good options to start with are Lumen 5, Invideo and Vidnami.
5) Membership Programs
Now membership programs could literally be anything from PLR membership sites, Marketing platforms, Online Courses, Online Community memberships,…etc. And of course as it is a membership it comes with recurring fees so this could be another stream of recurring passive income.
A few good options to start with are Gorilla Marketing Pro, IDPLR and IM Checklist.
As you can see the main focus is on recurring income programs because this is so important for every affiliate marketer. You want to have a steady income stream that comes in like clockwork each and every month. To supplement this income you can choose affiliate offers from several affiliate networks. But you should always abide by one rule, promote quality products and products that you truly believe in.
