Sharing buttons:

I'm John Chris Donnie and I make over

half a million dollars a month with

affiliate marketing but I'm going to

show you how to get started if you're a

complete beginner and I'll be going over

on my computer right here a step-by-step

way for you to go from zero to hero a so

if you're looking to start affiliate

marketing and you are a complete

beginner first of all I recommend you do

check out my introduction series to

affiliate marketing but in this video

I'm gonna be showing you exactly how to

get started we're gonna be doing a

couple things here we're going to be one

1st part of affiliate marketing is

joining an affiliate Network and this is

where you find products you can sell or

link to and make Commission's from first

step second step is you want to find a

product a specific product that you can

sell on the internet that you resonate

with and that you can make money with so

that's gonna be our second thing the

third thing that we're going to do is

we're going to actually go out there and

sell it now if you are a serious action


I recommend go through all these steps

in this video and actually you can start

earning your first commissions right now

if you just take these steps so let's

get on my computer and I'll show you

everything step by step so you know what

you're getting into so here I am and if

we Google just affiliate networks for

instance we'll find a bunch of results

we'll find a ton and we'll see if we

just look up the 10 affiliate networks

that aren't Amazon we'll see a ton of

affiliate networks we see Clickbank JV

zoo giddy up share sale efendi how do

you decide what to join now first off to

great affiliate networks to join our

Amazon and my other favorite is

Clickbank so Amazon is very easy to join

and let me show you how to join Amazon's

Affiliate Network now if you're on

Amazon right here as you see I'm on

okay we'll scroll down to the bottom of

the page and what we see is in the

footer it says make money with us okay

right there and you'll see there's a lot

of ways you can make money with amazon

selling private label brands business

etc but what we're interested is become

an affiliate now that's what we're gonna

start with right there so when we click

on this we'll see profit from our

experience earn up to 10% advertising

fees with a trusted ecommerce leader

join now for free okay so very easy to

join and start selling stuff on Amazon

see it says join advertise earn and

basically you'll just want to join and

one of the things it will ask you for is

it will ask you to put in a website now

do you have a Facebook profile my guess

is yes or if you don't you can create a

Facebook profile for free

that's your website ok very easy also

you know I've heard of some people just

putting in random websites that have a

lot of visitors in their niche and I

guess Amazon doesn't check but keep in

mind your YouTube channel you can set up

a YouTube channel for free your Facebook

profile is free and you can set these

things up and use them as your website

ok very easy now Amazon you don't make a

lot of money for purpose as a

demonstration I could you know say I'm

selling this book anithing which is

about 20 dollar book if you aren't 10%

of that what are you making two bucks

you're not going to become a millionaire

selling recommending books to people

unless you're making more than 10% so

the affiliate network that I really like

is called Clickbank and you can see

Clickbank right here there's a lot of

affiliate networks but Clickbank is the

most trustworthy and the oldest

affiliate network around it's been

around for 21 years it's based in Boise

Idaho and this is the network that I

made my first commissions on many people

have made their first Commission's on

and it's also been the

affiliate network that I currently make

most of my money with now if we click

here affiliate marketplace right there

we'll see all of the products that you

can sell on a commission only basis so

let's click this search icon right here

and see how many products we can find

okay now you'll see there's other over

4,500 products in the marketplace let's

zoom in so this gives you a lot of

options of what do you want to sell okay

what do you want to sell to make a lot

of money with O'Kane you'll see they

tell you how much money you'll make if

somebody buys what you're selling as an

affiliate you see $37 if you sell this

$56 if you sell this $41 if you sell

this there's a lot of money to be made

selling these different products now to

find something you resonate with you

kind of want to choose what I recommend

I personally sell business opportunity

type products but what I recommend you

do is let's just get started on Amazon

okay as I said the way you make big

money is with another affiliate network

outside of Amazon but let's just get

started with Amazon for the time being

for demonstration purposes is that okay

is that okay

okay cool sorry I didn't hear you there

for a second so back to Amazon now I'm

gonna go to and once again

let's say I want to start off with

advertising this book nfm which is a

book I'm reading right now it's a really

good book and we're gonna search this on

Amazon and look it up so we'll see okay

well it's nine dollars okay nine dollars

right here so I'm gonna click on the

book and what you'll see is when you're

in accepted for an affiliate Network you

see this little bar it says Amazon

Associates site stripe right here this

is where I'll get my affiliate link so

what I'll do is I'll click get link text

right there and you'll see it's

as text link created below now this is

my affiliate link which I will use to

sell this book this is the link people

need to click on this link and buy the

book and I make money ok does that make

sense people click on this link they buy

the book and I make money so we can look

at the full link here I'm not going to

go into the full what the full link is

but this carries basically the link

carries information that tells the way

affiliate marketing works is the link

contains information that tells Amazon

that's the person clicked on my link

versus they searched for it online or

whatnot and that link is in right here

the tag so that this stuff tells them

but we're just gonna grab the short link

copy it now I have my link I joined an

affiliate Network I selected a product

and we're going to move on to posting

about how we can actually you know

getting some people to come to my

website ok so now there are a few ways

to get people to come to your link ok

you will already have access to them now

do you communicate with anybody

digitally my guess is yes you do you

probably use text messages that's a way

you could get your link out to people

you use email that's where you can get

your link out to people you use

Instagram that's the way you can get

your link out to people do you ever post

comments on YouTube that's way you can

get your link out to people Facebook

this is a way you can get your link out

to people all of these methods are ways

you can get your link out to people now

most of the time you're probably having

very like just you know you're talking

about random social male/female social

dynamics in your life that's cool but

we're talking about making money here so

that's what we'll need to be talking to

people about in our emails now let's say

I'm recommending this book the first

place I could start is through email I

want people to click on my link I could

send an email to a couple of my close

friends let's say you know or just

people I know you know I could send one

to you know my friend Carlos

I'm not actually gonna type in my

friends emails here just so you don't

email all my friends but I could type in

my friends and I could you know write

something like book recommendation and I

could say you know I remember you asked

me for a sci-fi book recommendation and

I'm reading a really good one right now

I absolutely love it check it out and I

put my link there see there's my link so

I wrote a little short short personal

email in the way I normally communicate

and then I just put my initials so

that's a way to get your link out to

people you could send an email to people

that whose emails you have and in this

case I'm sending an email to Carlos who

I know is interested in science fiction

books that would be a good way to start

affiliate marketing another way to start

affiliate marketing is I could go on my

Facebook and I have you know a lot of

the people I'm friends with on Facebook

are you know like the future and science

fiction and all this stuff I'm not going

on my Facebook page I'm going on my

personal Facebook because I want to

communicate with people personally do

you buy things from ads probably not do

you ever buy things or see movies listen

to music based on other friends of yours

personal recommendations

my guess is yeah again if we want people

to buy from our link it needs to be

somewhat of a personal recommendation

that's why I'm posting on my personal

profile now if you don't want to sell

anything that's cool okay but again the

other methods of getting your link out

there are are expensive they cost money

so we're doing this for free now if you

are interested in going deeper into

affiliate marketing and paid advertising

and the art of copywriting I suggest I'm

gonna I'm gonna have my my assistant put

up a link to my playlist called the art

of copywriting here which we'll go over

how you can use paid advertising

to actually make money with marketing

okay so here we go create a post I'll

just say really good sci-fi book I'm

reading mind gasm z-- every day so far

check it out Neal Stephenson is a genius

now I'm not spelling correctly because

I'm doing personal communication that's

what sells again if you look if you're

writing something that looks like an ad

nobody's gonna buy ever ever nobody

wants to buy from ads nobody wants to

get raped and that's what buying from an

ad feels like it feels like your wallet

is being raped you want to have you want

to feel like you're in love and a

personal recommendation feels like

you're in love so here it is here's my

post very simple post then I just share

it and that's that's how it works okay

then I'll just post it right here now

that is how to start affiliate marketing
