How The Affiliate Marketing Model Works (Step By Step)

Ever wonder how some of the successful people in the online marketing space earn $100 a day or even $1,000 a week?

With the influx of people tired of the 9 to 5 grind, it’s no mystery that people are looking to create their own income. With that said, I would say this is the #1 question that I get asked daily.

Without further ado, let me share how the affiliate marketing model works.

1) Target Audience

This is also known as your avatar as I mentioned in my other videos.

This is the first thing that has to take into account is to attract the right audience. In other words, try selling meat to a vegetarian… it’s hard. This is the same exact idea.

Not everyone will be your ideal avatar. The key is to put your offer in front of the right person as close as possible. This is also your niche.

2) Select a product or service that matches your audience

As mentioned earlier, your offer has to be the right match for your audience. There is a transaction between you (as the affiliate) and your audience (the customer). It’s an equal or greater exchange of value.

3) Traffic and more traffic

I shared this in my other posts and cannot stress how important this part is. Let’s not overthink this part. It is nothing more than having eyeballs on your product or service.

Some of the popular sites you can use to drive traffic to your offer are Facebook and YouTube. I mentioned these two platforms because they are my two favorites.

Side note: Once I realized how powerful Facebook and YouTube were. I realized I didn’t need to use other platforms. Don’t get me wrong, most platforms are awesome. The question I asked myself, do I need to have more than two platforms to work with?

Trust me when I say this. It’s plentiful! Even if you used both platforms for the rest of your life!

4) Build an e-mail list

So, why is this important?

It is free traffic that you control and own.

E-mail marketing is still the #1 way to communicate with those who are interested in what you are offering and promoting. It was the case 20 years ago and still is the case today.

Imagine having your own audience with a click of a button?

How about having an automated ATM?

When you get to the point where you have a targeted e-mail list, your subscribers will follow your every move.

      Hi Jarrid!

      I use lead magnets and content to solve a specific problem that my ideal avatar is having.

      The type of content typically use is a value-based post on Facebook or video on YouTube. For example, if your avatar is struggling to get more leads for their business opportunity, a headline that will attract them would be something like:

      • 3 Quick ways to get more leads using social media

      • How to leverage free and paid traffic to generate high quality leads that will convert to hungry paying customers

      • How to use YouTube videos to get 3-5 high-quality leads per day on autopilot (even if you don’t have expensive video equipment).

      This has been my go-to method for capturing my leads into my e-mail list.
