3 Tips for Affiliate Marketing Success with Suzi Whitford of Start A Mom Blog

Today on the podcast, I am sharing my top three tips for affiliate marketing success. We will also get Suzi’s, of StartAMomBlog, tips and suggestions as well when it comes to affiliate marketing success.

Affiliate marketing has become one of my favorite topics lately because I see a lot of bloggers struggling when it comes to effectively utilizing affiliate marketing. That is why I created my upcoming course, Profits without Products, which will teach you to strategically monetize your blog space.

With that in mind, I shared 10 things you could be doing wrong when it comes to affiliate marketing and how to fix it in a recent post.

I want nothing more than to help others be able to take their passion online and be able to monetize their space. But you need a successful strategy to do so.

In today’s episode, I cover these three tips:

  • have a specific target audience
  • focus on the community
  • use content upgrades

Having a specific target audience helps you determine what products you should promote.

Building your community, or audience, is vital. You need to have an audience to promote to, right?

And using content upgrades. Yes, they are not just for building your email list but providing extra value and content to your audience which keeps them coming back to your blog.

Affiliate Marketing: Learn some vital tips and strategies to help you become more successful when using affiliate marketing

In my interview with Suzi, she shares her top 3 tips as well:

  • know the product you are promoting
  • paint a picture for your reader
  • use a how-to or tutorial

    I love affiliate marketing. It’s a great way to monetize your blog, but there is a lot more to it than just slapping a text link in a post and wishing for the best. These are great tips.

    Ok, there are some really good tips here, and I will definitely be checking out your strategy guide. As a fairly new blogger my number one goal is to grow my following and monetize my blog. I have signed up for a few affiliate programs and I’m putting them in my posts but I don’t think this is an area of strength for me yet. Certainly going to be trying to improve here.

    I think focusing on a specific community is SO beneficial. Lots of times people focus on everyone, and it ends up not being the right content for ANYONE! xx Adaleta Avdic
