Offer them something that no one offers

Why should someone buy ONLY your products? Ask this question yourself if you’re serious about affiliate marketing. Why??

Why should anyone buy from you if there are LOT of websites selling the same products?

If you’ve convincing answer, you can promote affiliate product to generate more affiliate income. No one will buy your affiliate products, when they find no value, hence you’ll probably end up making almost nothing from your products. So always make sure you’re offering something that no one else is offering on your niche to make more money from affiliate marketing.

    1. Well increasing readers ship takes time and as you can see, list building is my no. one point in promoting affiliate marketing. Many top bloggers have made a mistake and told us in their post that building a list is a must thing so I learned a lesson from there and have started building my list from the start.

  5. Saad, I’m so glad to see email list at the top of the list, and my focus is always on looking for ways to increase my subscribers so that I will be able to promote the right kinds of products and services to them in the future. Top post mate.

    1. Thanks Fab, Yes List building is my main goal. This is a lesson learnt from all probloggers who did not build list in starting and later mentioned in their post that they regret not building a list from beginning.

  6. Nice Post, But I can say one thing, affiliate marketing is not for everyone, you have to learn lot of things before promoting a products,thanks for writing on this topic, I am going to promote some products on my blog..
    Thanks Saad 🙂

    1. learn a lot of things? Would you mind sharing few here with us , would love to know your tricks on promoting affiliate products.

    Affiliate marketers can earn too much if they know the right way to promote…this article is really helpful to them….

    1. Yes, many bloggers are ditching cpc like adsense to earn money and going towards promoting affiliate products. For e.g. ME 😀

      I believe prompting the right affiliate product is worth a lot more as you are recommending your visitors a quality product rather than wanting them click your ad which is vey irrelevant most of the times.

  8. Great content for selling affiliate products. I’m promoting transitioning to a vegan diet for health and weight loss.

    1. you have great blog there and pretty good content , i think you should start putting some affiliate links or banner beneath the content to see more conversions on your products , I dont really recommend using banners on sidebar.

  9. Im getting tired of using google adsense. Google getting tons of traffic from web masters and web masters getting cents from buys online.

    1. To start earning from Adsense you need to send them huge amount of traffic , you should have at least 15k traffic to get monthly cheques from Adsense , i earn a lot more using affiliate than Adsense, That I never believed when other people used to say.

  10. Hi Saad,
    You have written a great post here. My question is can you please check my website for me to know whether I am doing the right things. Mostly my website is based on helping mum in their online business, however it has been difficult to get a lot of traffic.

    1. Hey Sumbo Just checked your blog and it looks amazing but when I tried to sign up for your news letter it says page broken , need to fix some issues there.
      Another thing which I see missing is Google authorship , you should get Google authorship in order to gain more audience and build trust.

      1. What do you mean by Google Authorship and how do i amend the broken link. Please explain.

        1. broken link , you can check in your plugin setting set up a redirect after signing up.

          Google authorship is easy to get , check in google tutorials or youtube it. I really wish I had written about it but I will do it any time soon.

          1. Thank you I just did that. I have applied for Google Authorship as well and got it.


  11. Yes, many bloggers are ditching cpc like adsense to earn money and going towards promoting affiliate products. For e.g. ME 😀

    I believe prompting the right affiliate product is worth a lot more as you are recommending your visitors a quality product rather than wanting them click your ad which is vey irrelevant most of the times.

    1. Hey Neel,

      Well I my myself ditched adsense not to earn big from affiliates but I don’t really use banners on my site anymore unless I am promoting a product of a friend but on my other small niche sites adsense is still my highest earners.

      choosing a right product which is affordable and has good features is sometimes hard to find.

      Thanks for dropping a comment and adding value to the post 🙂

  12. Everybody is telling that one should firstly build an authority blog, build trust, promote via email..

    But, what all internet marketers do ??

    Lemme tell you simple guide – buy exact match domain for your chosen product, write some detailed blog posts covering few keywords related to the product..

    Build web 2.0 links to all those posts…

    Do some aggressive blog commenting..

    Keep building quality links until you get ranked for the particular keyword..

    Now, you will be amazed to see money rolling in your bank account 🙂

  13. These are common ways to make money from blogging. I tried Adsense at first, but get disapproved time after time, so maybe affiliate marketing is a great idea.
