In this video I’m going to show you how to do affiliate marketing on Youtube with No money! I’m sure you’ve all heard about “YouTubers” making big bucks from Youtube but maybe you are not quite sure how they are actually making money or maybe you do know – but you just seem to get the same type of results.
Now there are several ways to make money from youtube and I go over some other methods in some of my other videos, but for now I want to focus on making money on youtube with affiliate marketing.
The good news is that anyone can make money with youtube, you don’t have to be a big Youtube superstar or have a ton of money to do it either… I’ll get more into that shortly but for now just know lets cover what affiliate marketing is exactly for those of you who may not know what it is…
It’s actually a pretty simple concept… when you become an affiliate of a company, it basically means you are introducing a product or service to an audience and if they purchase from your unique link (that you get when you create an account), you make a commission, which is basically a referral fee for sending that company the business.
So how do we apply this concept to Youtube to get affiliate sales with no money?
Well, there are more than 1.8 billion people using Youtube, your job is to get people to watch your Youtube videos and introduce them or remind them to buy things they actually want or need. If the buyer intent is already there, it doesn’t seem that hard to get some people to click on your links. right? The truth is that it doesn’t have to be hard as long as you follow a proven formula and essentially give Youtube what they want so that your videos rank high in the search engine.
So how do I get started with affiliate marketing with Youtube Videos?
Step 1: Choose Your Niche / Product
The first step is to find a product that you want to promote as an affiliate.
Now I go deeper into different affiliate programs available in some of my other videos, For this video, I will just discuss 2 affiliate programs out there that should cover the spectrum for about just anything you might want to do. The best way to approach this is to choose a niche that you are passionate about or have a of knowledge in so you can easily speak on that topic.
A good tip if you are just getting started is to choose a product that you already own and love — this way you don’t need to spend anything and your video will come from the heart.
Another tip: Try to focus on high profit commission products and or recurring commissions. This way, you can earn commission from the same sale for months or even years to come.
Two of the most popular affiliate programs out there are:
Amazon Associates & Clickbank
Amazon is good if you want to promote a physical product. Let me show you the link on where you can apply. Clickbank is good if you are more interested in digital or information products. Now, unless you already own a Clickbank product, you may have to purchase the product to review it, but you can always contact the company and ask for a review copy – there is no guarantee they will provide one but it doesn’t hurt to ask right?
Step 2: Create A Channel
The next step is create a Youtube channel if you don’t already have one… This is easy to do and free. Be sure to check out my other video on how to optimize your youtube channel – you should see it suggested right about this video (top right corner)
What type of videos should you create?
Tutorial Videos – AKA “how-to”
The first type of videos is Tutorial Type videos — this lends itself very well for youtube because people are often looking to learn how to do something on Youtube.
When creating tutorial videos, you want to show your visitors the step by step process of how to do something — And show them any tools and resources that you use for various products or services, this way you can easily work in your affiliate products by providing the affiliate links to the products you are promoting.
Product reviews work best if you have personal experience using the products, it will ring true with your viewers and it will build trust with your audience… plus you want to ensure that the products you are promoting are good quality. There are several ways you can approach product reviews, for example, you can talk about the features and why you like it — or you could do a comparison review where you compare it to other products.
Again, this should come easy if you are familiar with the product and one that you already use and love! Just look around your house and think about any products or services that you use regularly and absolutely love!
Step 3: Getting Traffic
Ok so you’ve chosen your niche, you’ve set up your channel, you’ve created your videos –now you need one of the most important pieces of the puzzle — and thats getting traffic right?
Even if you create the most amazing videos on YouTube, you’re not going to get any results if no seems the. Now be sure to check out my other videos on how to optimize your youtube videos. For now, I want to talk to you about how you can get free traffic from Youtube and Google..
The problem many people have when it comes to affiliate marketing or any marketing is driving traffic to their products and its the same with youtube as it is with e-commerce or any business.
