There are multiple ways of making money on the internet without having lots of knowledge about certificates or even going to schools, courses, or things like that, however, something that will be required is a strong will, dedication, strength, and also passion for what you are making, otherwise, it all goes to nothing. One of the most popular ways of making online money is through affiliate marketing in which you will be reviewing or trying to sell a product where the interested individual will be redirected to a special affiliated link where he or she can make the purchase and after the transaction, you will receive a certain commission on that product depending on the category of what have you sold.
Sounds easy, doesn’t it? But don’t get too carried away since that’s the easy part of the procedure because you need to do a couple of things beforehand such as a YouTube channel promote with the purpose of attracting multiple customers or viewers to your website or affiliate link to start gaining some money after making multiple sales with the pass of the time, but there is another problem, 2020 is already getting to its end, and now we need to focus on methods that will work in 2021, so stay tuned in this affiliate marketing for beginners explanation that will work in almost every year, let’s begin.
How to Start a YouTube Channel for Affiliate Marketing in 2021:
Step #1: Deciding a Niche for your Website/Channel.
First of all, you need to understand the niche that you will be select because that will be your starting point in almost every part of the procedure. A good niche should be the one that is not too populated with competence around the internet and also that it counts with decent commissions in the most popular affiliate marketing programs where you will be receiving that special link that was explained before.
Let’s say that you are a golf fanatic, then your website or YouTube Channel for Affiliate Marketing should be exclusively based around that niche or keyword which is obviously something related to golf, so, don’t try to mix niches, if you like golf stay with that topic and don’t try to switch or combine cars with golf or any other sport because it will be a complete mess and no one will watch that kind of videos/reviews.
Step #2: Time to Look for Keywords and Information.
To start making videos about a detailed niche, you need to look for information, however, you can’t just start copying and pasting everything that you find on the internet because that info can be full of copyright, and at the exact moment when you break some copyright laws you can say goodbye to your YouTube channel if you don’t take fast measures, so always try to look for inspiration and make your own information facts, tips and other possible explanations that you might want to give to your viewers.
Now, let’s talk about the general importance of keywords, and is a fact that the titles of your videos can’t be something random otherwise you wouldn’t be making any profit out of the YouTube Algorithm which will be one of your best friends in this affiliate marketing adventure where you will be depending on your dedication and almost nothing else. There are lots of keyword provider tools around the internet, some of them are very good, and also they don’t ask for anything in change, so you just need to start looking for options.
Now, to finish with this part of keywords you need to keep something in mind while looking for keywords, they need to be very competitive, but… what is a competitive keyword? Well, it’s basically a special word related to your niche that is very profitable but at the same time, it’s not being used by millions of thousand of individuals/competitors around the web, which is something very good and positive for your own business and strategy since you need to catch the attention of most customers before the competence does the same thing.
Step #3: Making your YouTube Channel.
After you have compiled all of the previous information, it’s finally time to start doing heavy work in the procedure, now it’s time to put it all together and see how it ends. Making a YouTube channel in these actual days can’t be easier than already is, especially taking into consideration the fact that everything has suffered positive changes with the pass of the years, but you can’t rush the process, take your time answering the questions and filling the information, for example, the name of the channel’s needs to be something serious, but at the same time informal and that finally is related to the general niche, otherwise, people could get confused about what are your offerings.
Finally, you need to start putting things in your channels biography as well as other important things like your social media accounts that could be specifically made for your affiliate marketing strategy and also, you could make a website for making everything easier and easy to access, however, that will be extra work and not everyone has the time to handle both a YouTube channel and an affiliate marketing website or blog, so in this case, we will be attached to the YouTube channel.
Step #4: Time to Post some Content and Videos.
Now that you have a brand new channel it’s time to see what can you do with the content, but here is something that most people that work with affiliate marketing tend to ask: Can I just ask for acceptance in the affiliate program? Well, the answer is a big NO, since those programs are always reviewing the acceptance request and they need actual proof that you will be helpful and useful in their program, for that reason, an empty YouTube Channel will not be enough to consider your acceptance, so it’s time to work in videos talking about your niche and giving detailed information, believe it or not, this tends to be what makes affiliate marketing made easy and simple in comparison to other methods of making money.
Step #5: Let’s Ask for Acceptance.
After a month or weeks where you posted lots of videos and content that is useful and handy to your viewers, you may have been successful and managed to build a couple of good traffic in your YouTube channel, which means that is time to ask for acceptance in the affiliate marketing programs, my recommendation will be the one that Amazon holds in these actual days, rumors say that in 2021 everything will be better in the program, also, keep your motivation since not everyone gets accepted into the program, however, if you are confident with your work then there is nothing to worry about, right? Good luck and remember that there are lots of opportunities in the future as well.
