Affiliate marketing (AM) simply means you are recommending useful products to people who need them
And when those people buy based on your recommendation, you get a commission
Now, let’s go back a bit.
I said AM means you are recommending useful products to people who need them
The keywords here are:
PEOPLE WHO NEED THEM
The only type of products available on Expertnaire are digital products
These are products like ebooks, software, online courses
So, let’s say you go to Expertnaire and decide to market a product on how to lose weight
Basically, what this means based on our previous definition is that
You are to RECOMMEND this useful product (on how to lose weight) to people who need the product (aka people who want to lose weight)
So, what do you do?
Number 1 – You grab your affiliate link for the product on Expertnaire
This is the link that you give to the people who want to buy the product.
When they buy through this link, you get a commission
Each product has its own affiliate link
You can view various products and get their affiliate link under the PRODUCT MARKETPLACE Section
Affiliate links on Expertnaire look like this: https://expertnaire.com/manager/product/6105527475/6636035222
Number 2 – You Should Understand the Product You Want to Recommend
In order to market any product effectively, you have to really know what it is about. This way, you will be able to explain it and answer questions based on it.
To do this, you should study the product itself or the sales message about the product
Use your affiliate link to access the sales message of the product
Number 3 – Find the People Who Need the Product
Since only the people who need a particular product will but it, the next thing you have to do is to FIND people who are interested in the product.
This is simple logic.
E.g. People who are slim won’t buy a “lose weight product”
You find these people by searching for them within:
– Whatsapp or Email List
– Your Social media followers
– Other people on social media
– Other people on the internet
Searching for them means running an advert. The advert can be paid or non-paid
E.g. If you send an advert to people on your whatsapp or email list, that can be classified as a non-paid advert.
Let’s say you run an advert like the one below to your whatsapp or email list:
LUTH Doctors Prove That There Are 3 Nigerian
Foods That Burn Body Fat Fast If Eaten Daily.
For more information, watch this video:
=> Your affiliate link
In this case, if you actually have some people on your email or whatsapp list who are interested in the product, they will click on your affiliate link to check it out and some of them might end up buying.
But then, the people on your whatsapp and email list are limited. If you have a robust email or whatsapp list of people who have money to spend, you should be able to get a few sales.
One of my students made his first N201,000 on Expertnaire within 3 months selling a product to people on his whatsapp list.
If you really need money, your focus should be on finding people via social media and the big internet.
To do this, you might have to run paid ads
Or if patient, you can grab a lot of free advertisement
Number 4 – Recommend the Product You Are Marketing To Them
Now that you have found the people who are interested in the product you are marketing, it is time to recommend the product to them
This can be as simple as giving them your affiliate link for the product
When they click on it, it takes them to the sales page for the product
If the sales page is highly persuasive, some of them will buy
In many cases, the way you recommend a product is why people will buy it
I usually like to buy the product I am marketing atimes and study it so that I can do a good recommendation job.
But that is me anyway.
It is not compulsory
But just know that if you are unable to do a good job of explaining why the product you are promoting will be a good investment/purchase for people, they won’t buy.
You should also realize that many people won’t buy immediately especially if the product is a bit pricey
This is why you need to be able to remind them about the product over and over
What I have just give you is the lay low of affiliate marketing.
Now, there are various systems and tools that people use in marketing affiliate products.
For me, the simple one I use is this:
1. I run adverts on places lke Google, FB, Instagram to find people interested in something.
2. I usually offer them a freebie like a video or a report that is about that topic they are interested in to get them to signup for my email list.
E.g. If I am selling a weight loss product, I can give them a 3-paged report that says “3 Nigerian Foods That Burn Body Fat Fast If Eaten Daily”
I do this using an optin page.
Here is an example of one – https://infodesk.com.ng/
Sometimes, I don’t give an extra freebie.
I just redirect them to the sales page of the product I am recommending.
This works if the product I am recommending has a very powerful sales message
3. Once they signup for my email list, I give them the promised information and I also recommend the product I am marketing to them
4. Since I now have access to them (via email), I also send them more useful information and reminders about my product recommendations
Tools I Use Are:
– Autoresponders (For storing email contacts and email marketing) – I use aweber
– Webpage Builders – There are many of these online for building your webpages – I usually use Thrive Architect or Elementor. I recommend Instabuilder for beginners
– A debit card from a Nigerian bank for making online payments
