Affiliate Marketing Turkish with the name of Affiliate Affiliate; is to market any product or service to consumers in return for a certain commission and to generate income from it. Income can be earned by making an agreement with the manufacturer or by participating in affiliate programs.
Since the sale will be done online, there will be a link to the product or service. I describe this as the golden link. Here is the crux of the matter. If we can effectively market the link we obtained from the producer or affiliate programs to the right audience, we can generate income from those sales. These links, where we will sell the product or service, can provide us with serious passive income.
Imagine that you are earning income even when you sleep at night. It’s not impossible. If you understand how you can do it and work in this way, you can make money online.
Where can I do Affiliate on the Internet?
We can perform affiliate marketing on all platforms that people use. In the end, the important thing here is the realization of the sale through the link we shared. Which platforms you should choose here may be related to which digital channels the audience who will buy that product uses. For example; If the product we intend to sell is cosmetics, Instagram, which is the digital channel used by women more, can be more effective.
One of the important points in affiliate marketing; is to know which digital channels the audience we want to reach uses.
We can make our sales through the following platforms;
- On Web Pages (Blog, Forum etc.)
- On a blog or web page created specifically for the product or service
- Instagram, Facebook, Linkedin etc. on social media platforms
- On all platforms where you can place your sales link (game apps, product reviews, etc.)
How can I make an Affiliate?
In order for us to generate income from the affiliate marketing, we must first determine the product or service we are going to sell. It will be more advantageous for us to focus on a single product or service. We should research affiliate networks by looking at commission rates, follow the trends and understand which product or service is more in demand. After determining our product or service, we should think about the channels through which we can deliver that product or service to the consumer.
There are a lot of tactics and tips on the channels we’re going to market and how we’re going to do it. In this section, my aim is to convey to you what the 2 most used methods are and how they work.
- Via Web Page
- Via Social Media
THROUGH THE WEBSITE (Method 1)
In order to be effective in digital marketing, it is very important to reach the right audience and produce content for that audience. We can create a new brand, create a blog or a promotional page for our products or services for which we will receive commissions. The important thing here is to build systems that will persuade our potential customers to buy our products or services. In order for us to sell on our website, we must first drive traffic to our site.
– We must generate traffic
We can provide traffic to our site as Paid (Adwords) or Free (Seo). We can drive traffic to our own web page with Google Ads. We can attract our daily, weekly and monthly potential customers to our site in the words we set and in the budgets we want. Google ads are one of the most effective and fast return methods. With certain budgets and well-optimized advertising campaigns, we can attract quality traffic to our site.
Another method is SEO (Search Engine Optimization). The words searched by the users on the internet are analyzed and the contents are created according to the search intentions of the users. To give an example, this is an article about content affiliate marketing and is a content page that provides free traffic to my site by the Google search engine. SEO work can be done for free, it is a time-consuming process and continuity is important to get efficiency.
As a result, we can provide paid or free traffic to our site, blog page. In both, it is very important to set the right strategies. By optimizing our ad campaigns, we can drive more traffic with less budget. By doing competitor analysis and producing quality content, we can attract free organic traffic to our site.
– We must collect e-mails
We managed to drive traffic to our site and now a certain number of visitors have started to come to our page. So how do we sell to the incoming audience? The answer is email marketing. By collecting e-mails from incoming traffic, we can market different products to our potential customers. One of the most important points here is why should the incoming user give us his e-mail address?
In order to receive the e-mail of your potential customers who come to our site, you need to offer something that will benefit them.
- Free trial
- Discount code
- Free ebook
- Special programs (Diet program, exercise program, etc.)
We can think of it as shopping. The user leaves us your e-mail address in return for the offers and enters our mailing list. The more e-mail addresses we can collect, the better for us. More email addresses mean more sales opportunities. At this stage, the goal is to get a certain percentage of incoming traffic to our e-mail list. If we can add the incoming user to our e-mail list, we will always provide him with the opportunity to market the product and similar products we want to sell.
– We Should Sell With Email Marketing
With e-mail marketing, we can regularly send the products or services we want to sell to our potential customers in our e-mail list and make sales. This type of marketing method can enable us to constantly sell new products or services to our existing audience. If we use e-mail marketing correctly and effectively, we can earn a serious income from the internet.
One of the points we should pay attention to here is that the e-mails we will send do not disturb our potential customers too much. If all the e-mails we send are sales-oriented, the users in our e-mail list can unsubscribe from our e-mail list after a while.
The trick of e-mail marketing should not be to focus on constant sales, but should be useful, informative content that will tell potential customers how the product or service we are going to sell will solve their problems.
THROUGH SOCIAL MEDIA (Method 2)
People do research on a product or service before purchasing it. They decide by looking at the comments written about the product and the content produced. The shares of people who have used that product or service on social media or the internet are very effective in the decisions of people who are considering purchasing the product or service.
Social media has started to produce its own phenomena, celebrities and most followed people in every field. Internet phenomena called influencers can influence many people’s purchasing decisions. Internet phenomena earn a significant income by marketing products or services to their own audiences. Let’s say that we are a social media marketer who is thinking of generating income in this field;
One of the most important points here is to establish a strong bond with the audience and to offer them good offers. Having a large number of followers can be an advantage, but a small and loyal audience can also generate income.
– We Must Choose the Right Channel
First of all, we should choose a digital channel for which field we have knowledge about. If we want to be someone who is followed in the field of education, we can consider youtube for video content, Linkedin if we plan to generate income from products or services specific to white collars. These examples may vary depending on the product or service you intend to sell. You can generate income by producing content for Instagram, you can generate income after reaching a certain audience on Twitter. The important thing is to know which channels our audience uses more and to produce content for that platform.
– We Must Produce Quality Content
I mean quality content, content that will be useful to followers and can be a solution to their problems. If we produce content that is useless and will not attract the attention of our followers, we may experience a decrease in the number of followers after a while. As our brand awareness will decrease, we may experience a decrease in our sales and revenues.
– We Need to Find the Right Sales Partner
We build our audience, we produce quality content, yes people trust us and they tend to buy the products we recommend. We are on the right track, but we can ruin everything in an instant. How Does? By marketing the wrong product. By marketing a product of a brand or supplier that we do not know or trust.
If we start marketing products that will mislead our followers and that they will not be satisfied with, after a while we lose our credibility and our sales rates begin to decrease. We must make sure that the product or service we are going to market is good and will meet the needs of our followers. It is very important to bring our followers together with the right brand or the right supplier.
– We Should Market Effectively to Our Audience
In order for us to be able to effectively market on social platforms, we must maintain strong bonds of trust with our audience. If people trust us, they will be convinced that the products or services we share will be beneficial to them. The product or service we will market does not have to be a well-known brand, the product can be marketed against any budget and any demand.
The offer we present to our audience must be clear. If we market the product or service correctly, people will prefer it accordingly. We can say that the price is appropriate, but besides, we should be able to present all the advantages and disadvantages of the product or service to our audience, with sharing such as this will be the disadvantage of the product you will buy at this price.
