How to Make Money on YouTube with Affiliate Marketing


In this video I’m going to show you a super cool way to make money on YouTube
with affiliate marketing as well as three pro tips on how you can make a lot more money
that you do with Adsense and just monetization coming up
hey whats up guys Sean here with video influencers helping you build your influence income and
impact with online video and if you’re new here we
post interviews with video influencers and tips and strategy videos just like this
one so definitely subscribe so you probably already know
that if you are not getting hundreds of thousands or millions of views on YouTube that turning
on the ads on your videos just not making you that
much money well I’ve got good news for you it’s called affiliate marketing what is an affiliate
marketing ? affiliate marketing is the process of earning a
commission by promoting other people’s or company’s products, you find a product you
like, promote it to others and earn a piece of the profit
for each sale that you make. My personal favorite example of this is
here is what you do number one sign up for the
amazon associate program number two once you are approved you can create a link to any
product that you like love and use and that link will be
unique to you number three you can create a review video or
a tutorial video of that product and post it on YouTube number four then you take your
unique amazon link and put it in the YouTube description
of the review or tutorial video you just posted then when someone clicks on that link and
purchases the product you earn a commission between 4
and 10 percent so if the product was a hundred dollars you would make 4 to 10 dollars but
it gets even better if after clicking on you link they
purchase anything for the next 24 hours you get a commission
for that as well so as you can see affiliate marketing can be a super powerful way to earn
extra income especially where there’s so many YouTube videos
about tutorials reviews hauls and products and there’s
literally an affiliate program for everything almost everything here’s how you can check
just Google the brand name or product name with the words
affiliate program next to it hit enter and the affiliate
program should pop up at the top and seriously amazon eBay all the different beauty lines
Nordstrom lots of big affiliate programs that have a
lot of different stores included in them places like society 6 for like cool art work
and coffee mugs and stuff there’s an affiliate program for
almost every site online so I promised you three pro tips and I’ll
get to those in just a second but first here are the most common
mistakes that I see video influencers making when it comes to affiliate marketing I am
amazed by how many reviews and kind of unboxing videos that
I see with no affiliate links in the description and that’s
probably because they haven’t seen this video so if you are getting any value from this
video please share it with somebody that needs to see it
but it’s like dude you are seriously leaving money on the
table like if someone is going to pay a hundred bucks on amazon for a product is not more
expensive if you promote it as an affiliate so the brand
is just keeping more money and the video creator is not
getting any compensation for all the hard work that when into making that video
so don’t make that mistake I literally would go looking for a watch that I’m thinking about
buying and I want to see a YouTube video about it and
I’ll watch somebody doing all the work of reviewing it and
Showing some stuff and then no affiliate link I could’ve reciprocated to the fact that they
showed me all that cool stuff by clicking on their affiliate
link and buying that watch through them but they are not
doing it the second thing some people think it’s that is like sketchy or weird and affiliate
marketing is not at all like I said you did all the
work to make the video to buy the cameras to get all the gear your
expertise your research the amount of hours you spend using the product has all got into
the fact that you are just kinda recommending it and there’s
a way for people to reciprocate all the value you added
to them and it’s not adding any money to the price so that person who’s finding a product
that could add value to their life and potentially the
thing that they were looking for has gotten value so that’s like
a win win win win win for everybody the only reason it could get weird is if you are weird
authenticity is everything so don’t be sales sketchy or stupid
the third mistake a lot of video influencers make is that they don’t disclose anywhere
that the links are affiliated and it is actually required by the
FTC that you do disclose I’m confident that 99 percent of people
just don’t realize that they need to disclose but it’s something that you know now
so im not a lawyer and this isn’t official legal advice but for more details on this
I will link some things up in the description below but basically you
should put something in the description like this
this video contains affiliate links, which means that if you click on one of the product
links, I’ll receive a small commission boom!
Ok so here are three pro tips for how to make money on YouTube with affiliate marketing
number one Make sure that you verbally let your audience
know that they can check things out in the description
If you never get that call to action they may never know it exists and never go check
it out thus you putting the link there is not going to do
a whole lot a good secondly if you don’t specifically have a
product to link to and it’s just a normal video or a vlog
and it wasn’t a review or something you can always link to the gear that you created the
video with which is a question that your audience a lot
of times wants to know what lights are you using or just
what’s your vlogging camera or those type of questions and all of those are relevant
affiliate opportunities and then the third tip is make
sure that you take the time to optimize your videos with
good titles tags and descriptions and show them in another social media platforms so
they get found because it’s does no good to do affiliate
marketing if you aren’t getting views and subscribers and your channel
isn’t growing you ultimately have to be reaching people and actually if you haven’t downloaded

also thought affiliate marketing and then lastly I’m gonna link up a must read an article
in the description by Pat Flynn from smart passive income on
honest affiliate marketing and he really sums up my
philosophy as well number one that you never recommend a product that you are extremely
familiar with that you haven’t you know put the time
in that you are not an expert on and you don’t have have
some actual relationship with it and you’re not just like seltzer water buy it and you
hate it I happen to love seltzer water but I’m not sponsored by
them there’s no affiliate link to this
number two and this is what Pat says never directly tell somebody to buy something you
simply bring awareness to the fact that hey if you want
