How to Increase Affiliate Earnings

Why do you want to learn about affiliate marketing? For me, that answer is financial freedom. Making money while I sleep feels pretty fucking amazing.

Financial freedom is more and more within our reach these days. It seemed like we had to work for decades before achieving it in the past, but now you can start a business today and be financially free in a few years. Is that your goal? If so, keep reading about how I've started my journey to financial freedom with affiliate marketing.

Know Your Topic, Know Your People

For example, you could have a blog about cooking. Digging a little deeper, you could have a blog about organic cooking. And, taking that one step further, you may wish to specialize in homegrown organic vegetables and cooking.

What does this have to do with affiliate marketing? Once you have a clear and specific target audience in place – once you know who your people are – you can then delve into what they need help with – and what they want to purchase.

Once you know your audience, you can promote various kitchen tools, cookware, and utensils that make your organic homegrown cooking easier and faster, too. You can even promote other blogger's courses, ebooks, etc that would resonate with your audience.

If you can help somebody to do something faster, quicker, easier, then you have a lot to market! Knowing your target audience and their potential needs, wants, and desires will give you a better chance at being successful with your affiliate marketing endeavors.


Choose a niche you have experience with, are knowledgeable about, and feel passion for.

• Be authentic; be vulnerable; be engaging

• Create good content – make certain you have enough to say on the subject so that your audience views you as a person of authority and experience

• Test out and review different products if you're doing a product-based website; don't phone it in. Really dig.

• Match your products with your blog or website – don't try to sell crap your audience doesn't need or want, just to make some money.

• Do your research! You need to create THE BEST posts on the web.

Increase Affiliate Earnings

In my blog income reports, I include some of the affiliate income I make. Here are the best tips I can give you for increasing your own affiliate earnings.

Become a Cheerleader

The best way to make $1000 a month or more with one affiliate? Become a cheerleader for the product or service!

Dive in head first, learn everything you can about how it works.

Do tutorials and teach your audience. Deliver value while being excited about the product. I did this when I first learned about Jasper (formerly Jarvis, formerly Conversion.ai), and while I was never a top affiliate (there are 7-figure earners in this space with 100,000+ on their lists – I started with 200 on my list), I went from $0 to over $1,000 in just a few month’s time.

I did this by joining their group and delivering value, while creating helpful content on my blog. I didn’t promote my content in the group, but I was asked by the team to become a “Jarvis Expert” and I accepted. This gave me more credibility and the page they used linked out to my content.
