How You Can Build A Successful Business Online With Affiliate Marketing Starting from Scratch

Today, I want to share with you how you can build a successful business using affiliate marketing from home. We can’t deny the fact that many people are now engaging in online businesses because of passive income. In fact, most of us now prefer to buy online than spending the time to go on malls and supermarkets to buy our daily needs. Shopping online has no hustle for traffic and saves us time.

In affiliate marketing, there are two kinds of traffic that you can have: Paid traffic which you can acquire by paying ads that directs to your website. PPC or Pay per click is another paid traffic. You pay for every click that is sent to your site. I don’t suggest this kind of traffic because it is expensive and you need to spend a lot of money on the ads. I strongly recommend using free traffic.

How can you have free traffic? Can you make money on affiliate marketing using free traffic? The answer is a big YES! You can show a product and get a commission by using these three traffic sources. Below, I will show various free and effective traffic sources that you can monetize to sell things online via affiliate marketing

Blog:

Get a blog and write a blog post with an affiliate product. Place an affiliate link somewhere on the post and if someone purchases that product you get a commission for it plus free traffic to your blog. For example, writing about a hosting company “Bluehost”, when the visitor clicks your affiliate link which goes directly to Bluehost website and register to that website and buy its hosting services, you will earn a commission. Try this out; it is very easy to do.

YouTube:

Another way of getting free traffic is by creating a video on YouTube. If you don’t want to speak on the video, you can consider someone speak or narrate for you by outsourcing on Fiverr and Upwork. YouTube is one very influential and powerful platform that can increase your websites traffic for free. You can add an affiliate link of the product on the description and a link to your blog. Promote your affiliate product and your blog on YouTube, means shooting two birds in one stone.

Product Reviews:

Most people are searching for product reviews on Google before purchasing online. Writing a useful and informative product review for your affiliate product can be a good source of free traffic. Provide a valuable and satisfying review. Try to be specific and detailed of the functionality and mention the quality and its usefulness. You can also indicate who will benefit using the commodity.

I assure you, you can make money with affiliate marketing using these three free traffic sources.  One very good site where you can get quality products and earn commissions is Amazon. Amazon has a lot of products where you can choose from. Pick one product, make a 5 min video, write a blog and a product review and watch your earnings grow day to day. That’s the beauty of affiliate marketing. Take my advice and make good money.
