A step-by-step breakdown on how to get started with affiliate marketing

Would you believe me if I told you that I make over one million dollars in affiliate revenue each year? 

It’s true – and believe me, I’m not telling you this to brag. I’m telling you this because you, too, can make substantial income through affiliate marketing.

Affiliate marketing is when content creators earn a commission by promoting a product or service from another company using an affiliate link. When someone clicks on your affiliate link and makes a purchase, you’ll receive a payout. 

So if you’ve ever heard the phrase “make money while you sleep,” this is it, my friend. It’s one of the best ways out there to make passive income – but like anything in business, you’ve got to go into it with a plan.

Over the years, I’ve fine tuned my affiliate marketing strategy and I’m so excited to break it all down for you in this episode. 

You’ll hear: 

  • How to identify the best brands for you to partner with
  • What to say in your pitch email to potential affiliate partners
  • Why relationships are key when it comes to affiliate marketing
  • The best places to promote your affiliate links
  • A breakdown of all the spreadsheets I use to stay organized

So grab your beverage of choice, something to take notes with, and press play on this incredibly informative episode.
