Affiliate Marketing – Boosting Your Income Online Part Time
Steve has been wondering if he can really earn decent income online part time, whilst still earning a full-time income?
Yet in truth that isn’t really the real question on his mind…
Steve is 48, works in sales in a local Audi dealership, he separated from his wife 6 years ago and they have 2 children together. A daughter Zoe, who’s 15 yrs old, she really doesn’t know what she want’s to do when she leaves school, except, go to university, which is going to cost money! Josh, Steve’s son is 12 yrs old, like most boys of his age Josh loves playing computer games and has a passion for sports, especially football.
There’re rumours of layoffs at Steve’s workplace, as business is so slow and no-one feels safe. Steve and his ex- partner have a good relationship, but he doesn’t want to tell her about his work woes, and is still committed to providing for his children’s future.
You see, Steve knows that it can be done, he just doesn’t know exactly how! He surfs the net every night looking at information, but there are so many websites with so many different messages that he just doesn’t know where to start. All he is certain of is that the world wide web plays a huge part in the income stakes.
Steve’s story isn’t an unfamiliar one!
The truth of the matter is, anyone, even you, can earn a decent income online part time with affiliate marketing, and you don’t need a computer degree to do it. In fact, the process is rather simple.
The way that regular people have turned 20 hours a week into 5 figure incomes is by leveraging the internet. They’ve connected with people that have the same hobbies, goals, passions or dreams.
There are many success stories and you probably even recognise a few of them: Pat Flynn, Marie Forleo, Neal Patel, Tim Ferris and Ash Ambirge are all regular folks that have turned their passion for helping others, into thriving internet businesses.[bctt tweet=”You see, it doesn’t really matter what excites you if you’re driven to help others achieve!” username=”smartdads”]
So it’s not just Steve, there’s a whole generation looking at ways to work fewer hours a day whilst improving their financial situation. It’s a culture being adopted my many, and they are becoming the ‘work from home crew’ changing the status quo of conventional income earning.
There’s probably someone living in the same area you are, earning a full-time income via the internet.
The internet has made it possible for anyone with drive and passion for becoming a well-paid entrepreneur,… to do so.
The proof is out there, with many methods tried and tested.
There’s one particular business model that I’d advised beginners try first, it certainly allows you to earn full-time money working part time hours and it’s called affiliate marketing.
We shall embark on this journey together, and in the next few weeks, we’ll learn how crafting a part-time job with full-time income opportunities work.
Steve just loves Audi – his passion is obvious!
Steve spends hours a week in various Audi auto forums, he’s particularly interested in the Audi RS4 and Audi S3. Forever researching the new models coming out, answering questions and seeking information on upgrades and tweaks that all the other Audi ‘petrol heads‘ are discussing.
In fact, Steve is seen as a bit of an expert by his friends and buddies in the online forums. So much so that he’s become the go-to guy when it comes to questions regarding customising the latest model of RS4 called the B7.
Steve currently makes £23’000 a year as a full-time car salesman.
How will he make that kind of money, will part-time job with full-time income work for Steve?
Introducing affiliate marketing
How do we do it, how can we make money online? That’s the 1st question that has to be answered, it’s a lot simpler than you may think!
It’s a simple fact that any business wants more market share. Nike wants more people to wear their gear and Sony wants a new TV in every household. Moreover, they’ll both pay you a commission on every sale if you can help them to achieve that, actually, 98% of brands will pay you (their affiliate) to help them get more market share, or in basic terms, make more sales!
As I said earlier, It’s not as difficult as you may think to get paid from activities that you do online. Amazon, for instance, will pay you up to 9% in commissions if you ‘recommend‘ their products on their websites that lead to a sale. For example:
If you yourself have a Sony Bravia TV, you will have a real customer perspective of how the TV operates, in ‘real life‘ scenarios.
- You’ll know how easy or hard it was to set up,
- You’d know if the wall brackets were included or not,
- You’d have first-hand knowledge of sound quality,
- You’d know what the picture quality is like …etc
Now, there are lots of other people looking at getting a new Sony TV, and they are searching for reviews on the Bravia model. In essence, you could write your own review on the TV. Knowing that Amazon will pay you a nice percentage if your review leads to a buyer clicking through to Amazon and making a purchase.
Another bonus to using Amazon as a place to send potential buyers, is that you’ll make a commission on everything that they buy. Not just the TV they went to look at in the first place!
With the millions of items available for sale on Amazon, it’s a great partner to have in online business. Plus, in case you were wondering, it doesn’t cost a penny to become an Amazon partner and get paid commissions for recommendations.
Success with online marketing
Steve has a great chance of success with online affiliate marketing because he’s not selling, Steve’s known for helping and advising, he’s recommending the right solution for a specific problem. That’s the huge distinction between success and failure for those wanting to use the internet to work part-time hours and earn a full-time income.
Steve knows that each and every Audi is a little different, and there’s a multitude of options available for customization depending on your budget, your car setup, and your final vision.
When marketing online, I’ve learnt it’s not all about me, it’s not about what I’ve done or can do. It’s about listening and understanding what reservations, pain points and questions you have, and steering you in the right direction so you can find a solution that fits your problem.
Looking at Steve’s activity in the Audi forums, he’s built good relationships and gained people’s trust. That puts Steve in a great position to start earning commissions from recommendations from products and services that his fellow petrolheads are looking for.
In our example Steve could earn commissions on all types of car related products, giving his perspective of what works best in what situation,… and he isn’t limited to the obvious Audi customization parts, there’s;
Wheels, tyres, trim, engine parts, polish, cleaning and detailing tools the list is endless. So with earning 9% on sales of items he recommends, the real question is how long will it take for Steve working his passion to generate a full time income online part time?
Written once visible forever – helping more and more people every day!
At the heart of an online business is a website, and even though technically you don’t need a website to earn money online. It’s a lot easier to be taken seriously, and be seen as an authority on a subject if you do.
10 years ago it would have been a specialist task to build a website. However these days with automation anyone can create the framework of a website in a couple of minutes… literally!
… more on that later
With a website, you have a place where people with the same passions as you can read about your experiences, your views, and your recommendations. Your website can become a hub which will give you an opportunity to attract like minded people, build trust and continue to share your knowledge.
If they like your honesty, and your non-pushy opinion they’ll probably click through to Amazon, Best Buy, PC World or whichever vendor you choose to partner with to take a look or buy your recommendations. Which in turn results in commissions. 🙂
Thanks to the internet, you can connect with and share experience and similar passions with people all around the world. And you’ll be surprised how many people like and want a Sony Bravia TV!
Have you noticed how many regular people are blogging about regular household items they use and love, and sharing their blog posts on the multitude of social networks available? Can you also see how they can quite easily turn what they do into a income online part time?
