Affiliate marketing is selling or marketing a product on behalf of a brand and you either get rewarded in cash or product when someone makes a purchase

In simple terms, affiliate marketing is when you get rewarded for sending traffic or customers to a brand/website

For this post’s sake, I’m going to show you how you can make money with affiliate marketing (this means you will get rewarded in cash) without a blog

How Does Affiliate Marketing Work?

Affiliate marketing is simple and straightforward

As I said earlier you will be rewarded for driving traffic or sending customers to a website/brand

Let’s pretend I’m a brand and I have a product that I want to sell to a larger audience

Or I have a membership site that I want people to join

For me to get more sales and signups I recruit affiliates

These affiliates are peeps who will promote the product or my site

I will give them unique links to use on their sites or social media platforms and the links will direct customers/members to my site/product

If it’s a membership site they will refer people (using a unique affiliate link) and I will compensate them when their referrals join my membership site

And if it’s a product I will either give them a commission for selling the product or let them use the product for free

here’s the math:

You (the affiliate) + Marketing = Affiliate Marketing

Get it? Now let’s get to the bucks

Some links in this section are affiliate links. I may earn a small commission to buy toys for my kids if you use these links. You will not be charged extra. I only recommend high-quality products and I don’t recommend them based on the small amount I earn if you decide to make a purchase

Types Of Affiliate Marketing Income

There are different types of affiliate marketing income

And I’m going to discuss two types

There is passive (recurring) income which is popular on membership sites

You earn money by referring someone to a membership site and if that someone joins on a monthly or yearly plan you keep earning a commission whenever your referral pays for his/her membership

This type of income stream is a game-changer especially if your referral enjoys the services

You will keep earning money till your referral gets old

A good example of a platform where you can earn recurring affiliate income is Wealthy Affiliate

Wealthy Affiliate is a membership platform where people are trained to become professional affiliate marketers

Their training can transform a complete novice into a pro affiliate marketer

The platform is open for everyone, even those who have never heard of the word Affiliate, so it’s a good platform to promote

Your aunty who is always taking surveys online just to make a few bucks will love to join

Wealthy Affiliate has a free and premium membership

The good thing is, both free and premium members earn a commission when their referrals upgrade

But their commissions are different

Here’s how it works,

They have 2 types of payment plans on WA the first one is a monthly plan which costs $19 (special offer) on the first month and $49 thereafter

The premium members will earn $8 for the special offer and $23.50 thereafter and the free members will earn $4 for the special offer then $11.75 thereafter

The second payment plan is paid yearly for $359

Premium members earn $175 and free members earn $87.50 yearly recurring

The good part is you don’t need a blog to join Wealthy Affiliate and if you decide to join and upgrade you will get access to all the WA resources plus training

Wanna check out WA?

Guess what? I’m also a WA member if you join you will meet me inside

Back to our types of affiliate marketing income

The second one is a one time commission

It’s self-explanatory when your referral makes a purchase you get paid once and that’s all

This is common on product-based affiliate programs

Now let me answer the million-dollar question

But before I tell you how you can make money affiliate marketing without a blog,

Bear in your beautiful mind that not all affiliate marketing programs are open for siteless members (lol love the word siteless never heard of it but it makes sense)

So do check the requirements before joining ’cause I don’t want you to be disappointed

You can simply search for affiliate programs on Google, in the search box type in your interest/topic+affiliate you will get a trillion affiliate marketing programs

Now let’s move on, here’s how you can make money affiliate marketing without a blog:

Share Your Affiliate Links On Social Media

It’s time to get paid for being social!

Promote your affiliate links on social media

But don’t just pour your links everywhere, tell your followers why you think the product you are promoting is cool and how it can change their lives

People have huge problems and some of them don’t even realize they have problems unless someone tells them

So be that someone and give them a solution to their problem

For example, if you want to promote Wealthy Affiliate to your aunty who is always taking online surveys

Let her know that those surveys won’t buy her a car but if she becomes a WA member and refers 10 people every week she will buy a new car in no time and she will get expert affiliate marketing training

That was just an example sweetheart, Wealthy Affiliate isn’t a get rich quick scheme

Promote Your Affiliate Links On Pinterest

Do you have a Pinterest account?

It’s high time you turn that account into a business account

No worries it’s free

If you’ve been using Pinterest to search for some recipes and some cool DIY tutorials change that

You can make real money with Pinterest, all you have to do is to create boards and pins for your affiliate marketing business

Then add your affiliate links in the URL box and remember to disclose that your pin has an affiliate link

Simply add #aff or #affiliate on the description, that’s it

Oh yes Pinterest isn’t social media sweetheart

It’s a visual search engine, no one get’s social on Pinterest, they search for what they want like what they do on Google

And if you take advantage of that you can make good money

Recommend Your Affiliate Products To Your Family And Friends

This doesn’t have anything to do with social media

Simply recommend your products to your friends and family or ask them to purchase so that you earn a commission

They’re close to you remember so they’ll definitely support you

To make this effective ask them to pass on the links to their friends as well

This method won’t make you rich but at least you will pocket a few bucks

Tik-Tok Tik-Tok It’s Time To Make Money Affiliate Marketing Without A Blog
