What Is Affiliate Marketing
Since I promise to make this post broad and simple, to achieve this we should start from the scratch. I will be defining what affiliate marketing is and I will be going deep into it.
Affiliate marketing is an online sales tactic that lets a product owner increase sale by allowing others targeting the same audience “affiliates” to earn a commission by recommending the product to others. At the same time, it makes it possible for affiliates to earn money on product sales without creating products of their own.
Simply put, affiliate marketing involves referring a product or service by sharing it on a blog, social media platforms, or website. The affiliate earns a commission each time someone makes a purchase through the unique link associated with their recommendation. Done well, this performance-based opportunity can become an important part of your business by netting you a healthy income.
What is Web Hosting
For you to get a clearer picture of what our market (web hosting affiliate marketing program) is all about, I’ll be defining and explaining what web hosting is, and how to make money from their affiliate program.
According to Wikipedia
“A web hosting service is a type of Internet hosting service that allows individuals and organizations to make their website accessible via the World Wide Web. Web hosts are companies that provide space on a server owned or leased for use by clients, as well as providing Internet connectivity, typically in a data center. Web hosts can also provide data center space and connectivity to the Internet for other servers located in their data center”.
With everything now clearer I believe, we can now dive in further to How to Make Money from Web Hosting Affiliate marketing program, first, they are some key things you’ll have to know.
How Web Hosting Affiliate Program works
Just like every other business both offline and online will frown at the idea of not having a customer, web hosting companies need customers, customers are the sole reason individuals and companies go into business, they can do everything within their power (legal) as long as it doesn’t incur a loss.
Most webhosting if not all, run an affiliating program you can sign up and a special link will be giving to you which you can share and any signup you get through your link you’ll be giving a commission every webhosting has their percentage of commission they give to their affiliate marketers.
Two Basic Skills to Master for a successful web host affiliate marketing
Knowing your Audience
The first thing you should know as a marketer is how to market or display your goods to the right people, you might have the best goods or services in the planet, but no one is buying because you’re trying to sell to the wrong set of people, the audience you’re selling to don’t need or might not need that particular goods or services at that time, so the question now here is “how do I market to the right persons” it’s simple.
Social Media Audience,
Social media is one of the most powerful media to make sales online, I hear a lot of people say “I’m not a social media person”, if you’re not a social media person then you have no business marketing online, the world has gone mobile and you have to adapt to it.
If you are not intending to make use of social media advert, your audience (Friends) on social media matters a lot, when I say audience, I mean your friends the friends you have on any social media platform, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc., should at least be people who are ready to buy or relate with your products and services, I’m not saying you should not keep families and friends on your list, do but your customers should be more than your friends.
Recently I was clearing some friends on Facebook, every irrelevant friend who is not engaging my content I unfriends them and keep more space for other friends to enter, it’s not something bad but a marketing strategy that you should do if you want to make sales without making use of social media paid advert.
- Paid Ads Targeting
People complain about spending huge money on social media advert especially Facebook without getting the required result. What could the problem be? It’d simple, Ads targeting.
Social media has made it possible for you to be able to choose the kind of people you want to show your advert to, the age, country and so on, why your Ads don’t convert is because you are not making use of this features , I make the best out of this feature to make good sales with little amount of money.
If you fall in this category, I know the question that might be going through your mind right now is “how to make use of this features”, It’s simple but a story for another day.
- Sales copy
Wondering what a sales copy is? Don’t worry I will explain.
A Sales copy according to crazyegg.com is a text that persuades consumers to buy a product or service. You can write sales copy in paragraph form, create lists, or overlay it on an image.
The best sales copy focuses on how the end consumer can benefit from whatever you’re selling.
Crafting a sales copy that drag in sales is on thing you should know how to do, if you don’t know how to craft a sales copy, it won’t be a crime to pay someone to craft one for you.
What you attach to your content be it video, music, Picture etc. will also determine how good the sales will be, as a good marketer you need to have the skills of convincing customer to buy, not just by talking also writing since you’re targeting online members for now.
How to Get Signup and Possible Sales to Your Web host Affiliate
Here is where the major problem lies for many newbies not just in the web hosting affiliate business, but affiliate marketing as a whole. how to get sales to Your WebHost Affiliate and here is where my tricks come in. I see people complaining about how affiliate marketing doesn’t work anymore and how they have tried everything possible to make money from affiliate marketing but are not successful.
Affiliate marketing is broad and can contain as many people as possible and a lot of money can be made selling other people’s products right from the comfort of your home, it’s not promising to be easy but it’s worth it.
We’ve come to the main reason of this post, I will be teaching you how to make your first and continuous webhost affiliate sales with ease, the most interesting part is that, you’re not paying a dime for this knowledge. Let’s kick start it.
Before we start, I want you to take a look at some of my Webhosting affiliate marketing dashboards, both earnings referrers, and clicks.
Don’t scream yet, they are a lot of people I know who are earning way bigger than what you’re seeing. the second screenshot was when I started newly.
Referring people to my affiliate webhost partners was a nightmare I was doing almost the same thing without getting much result, I had to add a twist to it re-strategies and went back, as you can see the results are powerful, I spent less to gain more.
This is what I did that made the difference;
Facebook Ads re-targeting
Like I mentioned earlier, you need social media to really make sales online, you need a large platform to source out people who will be interested in what you sell.
All I did as a newbie back then was to post my affiliate link to my page and then boost the post, at the end of the day your money is wasted and nothing to show for it, no one buys or even signup what was the problem here? No targeting.
What I did was learn how Facebook targeting works and how to target only audience that are ready and are in need of my products, this is one key thing you need to do in other have a Facebook Ads that convert and make sales for you.
As mentioned above, I took my advice and paid for a good sales copy to be crafted for me, though this could still be useless if you’re targeting the wrong audience. Notwithstanding, a good sales copy will go a long way to improve your clicks, engagement, and products or service sales.
Convert my clients to Affiliates
This is where my secret is, this is where I make my money from without spending a dime. What’s so special about this huh?
Here is it, 50 percent of successful signup and sales on my affiliate dashboard are sales from my client, I’m a web designer I design all kinds of website and I get approximately 10 jobs every month, what I do is ask my clients to visit the webhost I’ll be using to design their website for them and signup with my affiliate link, then I’ll collect the login details from them and order the hosting plan they want.
With this done, I get 20% commission from the order without spending a dime but rather gaining more from the affiliate signup and order commission plus my charges from clients.
Now let’s calculate, let’s say I get 10 clients a month and he or she is ordering a service worth of N50,000 and the affiliate host is giving me 10 percent of the order money and the 10% of N50,000 is N5,000, times it with the number of clients per month that’s equal to 50,000, doesn’t that make sense?
Ask Some friends to use my link
At the early stage of my web host affiliate business, I use to beg some friends who want to buy a host to buy from the hosting coming I’m partnering with so I could get commission though this doesn’t add much, as they might just end up only signing up without buying.
Make a Review on My Blog
This usually depends on the views and audience you have, I run technology and how-to blog I make reviews of products and services.
Webhosting is one of the reviews I do, why doing so input I my referrer link to their website if the users reading my blogpost are interested in buying a host they will click on such links even if no purchase is made immediate, I will still get paid anytime they purchase on their website.
3 Things to lookout for before joining a webhosting affiliate
Almost all if not all web hosting companies offer affiliate program both the good the bad and the ugly ones too, you don’t just jump into any web host affiliate marketing program without considering things that might not be favorable to you or the person you’re referring, anyway that’s why you have this eBook or post (whichever form it gets to you).
Most hosting company promise 100% uptime, which I can boldly say is a fat lie (you can prove me wrong) you won’t want to refer a host with too much downtime to your audience just because you want the money, no, no matter how good the commission is making sure before you join any web hosting affiliate program is either you have firsthand experience or at least seek reviews from people using it.
Everybody loves good thing with affordable price tag, even myself I do, in webhosting affiliate marketing in other to get more customers you need to look for a good hosting company that offers affordable services, you might end up getting more signup and none or less purchase because of the price tag of a webhosting plan.
I usually look for a hosting companies that are offering promo, signup for their affiliate marketing program after making sure the first point above is considered, then refer buyers to them this usually turns out very well and I make more sales.
Before going into webhosting affiliate marketing program be sure that users’ cookies last at least 30days, still confuse what a web cookie is?
According to Wikipedia “a web cookie (also called web cookie, Internet cookie, browser cookie, or simply cookie) is a small piece of data stored on the user’s computer by the web browser while browsing a website.
This information is stored on one’s browser, a good webhosting affiliate program must be able to make use of web cookies to store user info to really know that a particular referrer referred them even if they don’t buy immediately.
Many users won’t buy immediately after clicking on your referrer link, a good affiliate program must be able to store such information and know where the user is coming from.
Webhosting affiliate is not a get rich quick venture, but if this process is followed duly, you’ll be making good money without leaving your home.
I make more than a 100,000 monthly from web hosting affiliate marketing, the trick is, I don’t dwell on one Webhosting affiliate program I explore more anyone that meets my criteria I quickly join and refer my users to them or create a Facebook Ads.
You too can do more if only you decide to do it, I know of pro’s who are making good money from webhosting affiliate.
