Developing a Revenue-Generating Affiliate Marketing Strategy 

  1. Look at the products you love. Do they offer affiliate programs? 

  2. Once you find the affiliate programs, set aside some time to sign up for them and understand how they work. Create google document that houses all of your affiliate links in one place. This makes them easy to grab and share as needed. 

  3. Figure out how you want to promote the service or product. Are you posting on Facebook or Instagram? Are you emailing your audience? Are you writing a blog post or making a YouTube video? Definitely consider creating a resource page on your website. 

  4. The more you talk about the service/product, the more people will remember it and be willing to try it! Nothing is better than having someone come to you and ask, “what’s your code again”?? 

  5. Genuinely talk about the product when you have the opportunity! Make it feel as natural as possible with what’s going on in your day and what you’re doing for work. For example, around tax season, Elisabeth talks about QuickBooks Self Employed a lot!
