One of the most successful ways you can make money with your website is through affiliate marketing. The process is pretty simple. You act as a salesperson through blog posts and entice someone to purchase a product elsewhere.
You will then earn a commission if you have successfully convinced someone to make a purchase through this third party. Let's give you an example.
Let's assume you have a website about golf and you've written blog posts which examine the best golf clubs you can buy this year. You will write about all of the brilliant reasons why certain golf clubs are worth buying.
The reader will then click a link through your website and access the store where they will make a purchase, based on your recommendation. If you have successfully set up affiliate links on your website, you can make a commission on these sales.
However, for this tactic to be successful, you're going to need an audience. If you haven't got an audience, how are you going to make any money?
Luckily though, affiliate marketing is extremely scalable so you've always got scope for growth and the potential to make some serious money.
You just need to be good at driving traffic to your website and building an audience who will trust your advice. If this is successful, then you can happily earn a good passive income stream.
There are plenty of affiliate schemes out there with well known brands and Amazon even have their own program known as Amazon Affiliates.
