7.5 Ways to Help Readers and Make $1000/Month

If you can make an extra $1000 a month or more simply by placing affiliate links where they will be most helpful to your readers and viewers - your results may vary. But imagine if you could.

This is correct: Instead of thinking of affiliate marketing as a way to monetize your site, consider it as a way to provide value to your readers.

My sales have increased significantly since I made a small shift in my thinking, and now I'm placing far more affiliate links out there and making more sales as well.

Your readers and customers will benefit from using these affiliate links:

1: To begin, create a page of tools and resources. For each product, tool, course, and so forth, include affiliate links. As a bonus, it makes it super simple for readers to navigate to the resource they're looking for without having to do any searching on their part.

2: Post your affiliate link and real reviews on other sites. Even if it turns out that the product is not suitable for you, you can still post a link for them to check it out. And having a link to the product means that they don't have to do any searching.

3: Tell your email list about the products and resources you love. As an example, you could send out a weekly newsletter that includes deals, or you could write an email that explains how to do something. You could also tell them about a new product that can help them achieve their goals.

4: Use opt-in freebies and lead magnet links to drive traffic to your affiliate sites. If your lead magnet is a how-to guide, include links to the resources you rely on in the process.

5: Include affiliate links in all of your materials, including free and paid courses and products. It's always a good idea to provide your students with the links to the tools you use when teaching them something new.

6: On your thank you page, include useful affiliate links. Your thank you page is the next step a visitor takes after choosing to join your mailing list in exchange for your freebie. You can use this space to promote affiliate links for products and services that can help them achieve their goals even further.

7: In order to make money from advertising on your YouTube channel, you should include affiliate links. In addition to 'how-to' videos, make videos about the products and services you're promoting. In the description box, include a link to your affiliate page, and then point out the page's location in the video.

7.5: Take advantage of social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to promote your affiliate links. Make an effort to assist those who follow you on social media by sharing the information you've learned along the way.

Always disclose that you're using an affiliate link if you want to stay on the right side of the law. Any of these are acceptable hashtags to use in social media posts:  #afflink, #ad, #sponsor or #affiliatelink.

If you're going to use affiliate links on your website, emails, reports, and courses, use the following language to let people know:

Please note that if you decide to make a purchase after clicking on one of my affiliate links, I may receive a small commission at no additional cost to you.

Alternatively, a plugin can automatically insert your disclaimer at the end of each post.

Ask yourself if this is a good place for an affiliate link when you're doing something online. Is it appropriate? How useful is it to the reader?

If you don't believe in something, don't advertise it. Promoting subpar products in order to make a quick buck now will make future sales much more difficult. Your sales will skyrocket if you always put the needs of your readers ahead of your own.
