5 Tried, Tested and Proven Ways to Make Money Online With Affiliate Marketing

These are the 5 various ways I have generated sales with affiliate marketing.  You can give it a try too! It works!

1)  By participating in forums

You can join forums of your particular interest, especially those which are closely related to your affiliate product niche.  For example, you might be a travel enthusiast.  You can share your experiences on the forum, and help fellow forum mates in their travel queries or plans.  At the same time, if they are looking for items like luggage or travel accessories, you can “suggest" to them your affiliate links.  Typically, if you have contributed fairly to the forum for quite some time, people will tend to trust your recommendations.  This works in your favour and increases your sales conversions.  Of course, do recommend items that are genuinely helpful to your forum mates.

Not all forums allow the posting of affiliate links though in their threads.  Be discreet about it.  Probably you can message a forum mate personally, or respond to their queries through email.  Remember to read the terms and conditions of the forum, otherwise you may risk suspension of your membership.

2) By posting an affiliate link in your forum signature 

If the forum allows the posting of affiliate links, you can increase your exposure by posting it as your signature too.  So whenever you leave some comments or answer questions to threads, you will be leaving traces of the affiliate links, open for others to see.  

3) Set up a blog or website and include affiliate links in it

Having a personal website is really useful for affiliate marketing, if it has at least some traffic.  You can put banners at your homepage or affiliate text links in your posts.  

Text links have shown greater sales conversion rates, never forget to include some of them whenever you post an article relevant to your affiliate product.

4) Set up a Google Adwords campaign 

You can set up a Google Adwords campaign with keywords you have chosen that will point to your affiliate product website.  I have personally generated 100% conversion sales with this method before.  What I mean is, I observed only one click through on a certain day, and this click through to my affiliate product website brought me sales immediately.  So technically, the product converted 100% on that particular day!

5)  Set up an article marketing campaign 

You can consider writing articles related to your affiliate niche product and have them submitted to article directories.  If you chose a great title for your article, the article might end up being on the first page of Google search after a few days.  Research for title keywords can be done via tools like Wordtracker and Google GTrends.  If you have a winner title, your article would be highly read and the chances of people discovering your affiliate product would increase accordingly.  And the best part is, article marketing is totally free! 

These five methods of generating sales with affiliate marketing are all tested and tried by me.  When I first started with affiliate marketing, I had my doubts too.  But now I know it is not another scam.  In fact, it is a great way of making money online.  You can treat it as your personal business and work anytime you like, making money while you sleep! Doesn't that sound great?
