In this session of the Smart Passive Income Podcast, special guest Chris Guthrie and I discuss several affiliate marketing strategies, tips and techniques drawing from real life examples from our own websites and experiences.
Affiliate marketing has been huge for me lately. Last month, I earned $18,638.24 from affiliate marketing and Chris has pushed over 1.5 million dollars in product sales from Amazon.com alone, which is out of this world.
You may remember Chris from Session #10 of the SPI Podcast, which was more of an interview style type podcast. This time around we do more of a “round-table” type discussion about affiliate marketing and throw tips back and forth that have worked for us in the past. There’s a lot of little golden nuggets in this session, so whether you’re just getting started with affiliate marketing, or you’re already experienced with it and want to increase your conversions, there should be something here for you.
In this session, you’ll learn:
- The first experiences that both Chris and I had with affiliate marketing.
- How to find the perfect products to sell as an affiliate on your site.
- Our thoughts on promoting a product that you haven’t used yourself yet.
- How to get products for free from companies to review and promote on your site.
- Rules for long-term success with affiliate marketing – especially if you have an existing audience or following.
