Affiliate marketing, which is promoting a company’s products and then earning a commission if your marketing efforts convince someone to make a purchase, is one of the best ways to earn a passive income. According to Neil Patel, you can make money in your sleep, however, you will have to work while you are awake.
While some companies operate their own affiliate program, most belong to one of the many affiliate networks, which aggregates your payments from each program that you join. Typically, you will need a website before joining an affiliate program so that you have somewhere to promote the products. You will drive traffic to your website, where consumers will click on the link with your affiliate code embedded in it. You’ll need great content, in order to convince people to buy; this is how you profit from your website.
Reviewing a product allows you show consumers the benefits of a particular product. You can review one product or compare the item to its inferior competitors. Reviews work best for high-end items that people research online before buying. Your review should include any negative attributes of the product, because no product is perfect. Make your review so comprehensive that you address every potential question, so that your visitor will be ready to make a purchase after reading the review.
Leverage social media to drive visitors to your website. Find the right network for your target audience and then post, like and share. Keep promotional content to a minimum and your followers will value your opinion more when you recommend a product or service.
