3 Easy Tips You Can Use Today to Make Money with Affiliate Marketing

*This post contains affiliate links.

One of the first ways beginning bloggers can monetize their blogs is through affiliate marketing. Below I share three amazing tips with examples and additional resources how you can use affiliate marketing to make money with your blog, even if it’s small.

Tip #1: Make a collage pin and roundup post.

A collage post is a post that features 5-10 products from Amazon (or another affiliate program) that solve a central problem. And the collage pin that you create with it is super shareable on Pinterest. Since you are not allowed to take screenshots of the images from Amazon, you’ll have to be creative!

Because you’re reviewing a few products, hopefully you’ve purchased them to give an honest review. So you can take real pictures of the items and add those images to your pin image.

If you use other affiliate programs, like Nordstrom or Target for example, reach out to them to confirm you can use images from their site.

Advice: Don’t just throw a few things together, take the time to think through the items. Will the combination help your reader? Have you used the items yourself? Can you write an honest and complete review? Do they all help solve a problem for your reader? Have you included low and high priced items?

 

Tip #2: Write a comparative post.

If you know your audience may like multiple items but they find it hard to choose between them, why not make it easier for them to do so? For example, I know my audience loves blogging tips and tricks. So I’ve created a post comparing the top 4 blogging ebooks for them. I’ve listed the necessary information they would need to make a good comparison between the products.

I own each one of those ebooks that I’m an affiliate for and can write an honest review on them.

If you help make the purchasing decision easier for your reader, your conversions will increase. Always focus on solving a problem for your audience, and they will love you for it!

 

Tip #3: Paint a picture for your reader!

Megan, a fellow mommy blogger, wrote up a fantastic post and added a few affiliate links in it. This drove more than $22 to her bank account within her first week of blogging! Why was she so successful?

It’s because she showcased the item in her home and in her post. She didn’t just slap a few affiliate links in her post, she actually told a whole story. She sold the item so well and allowed her reader to ‘see’ the item in their home too. How can you display the benefits of the product you are an affiliate for? How can you make your reader see themselves using that item too?

Once you get your reader to imagine that item in their home, then your conversions will skyrocket!

 

You really do not need hundreds of thousands of page views to make money with affiliate marketing. It’s all about your techniques.

As you know, this mommy blogger makes over $1,000 each month through Amazon’s affiliate program.

And in my income reports, you can see that I make half of my income (about $3,000) from affiliate marketing too. And I don’t even have over 50K page views per month.

So no, you don’t need thousands of page views. You can do this even if your blog is small.

 

Do you worry that affiliate marketing just doesn’t work for your niche?

That can’t be further from the truth. There are a ton of affiliate programs that can benefit your readers. If you know of a product or service your readers love, why not Google the “product name + affiliate” to see if they have a program you can sign up for?

Focus on your reader and solve a problem for them. Then find the right program or product and sign up for their affiliate program.

Amazon is one of the first stops you can explore!

Above are three completely different niches and topics that are all bringing in hundreds of dollars through affiliate marketing. Affiliate marketing is one way you can make money with Amazon, another is actually selling products on Amazon through their FBA program.

 

Remember, even a small investment in your blog will pay off over and over again if you use it right!!
