You hear the term affiliate marketing and you cringe. You think that is not authentic, its sleazy, and that if you try it out you might just wind up spamming your list and turning off your existing and potential clients.
I used to think the same thing but I was SO wrong. You can do affiliate marketing right.
How you ask?
By being authentic and sharing products and services that you love and use yourself.
In addition, working with affiliates that compliment your existing business is a great way to provide more value to your clients without having to create new products and services.
I am living proof that this works. I took Nicole Liloia’s Authentic Affiliate Academy last October and I have been consistently generating affiliate income every month!
Yes you heard me right! Every few weeks I get an email that money is being deposited in my PayPal account! Just for recommending my favorite products and services! That’s doing what I normally do anyway but in turn I am basically earning FREE MONEY!
Let me state “I don’t have a huge email list” or a ton of Likes on my Facebook page. I do have about 1,200 followers on Twitter and I belong to quite a few groups on Facebook but I only share products and services that I have used myself and believe in.
Pat Flynn the Smart Passive Income guru agrees
“Before deciding to actually promote it as an affiliate, it’s always best to use that product first so you can understand the user experience that THEIR PRODUCT will provide for YOUR AUDIENCE. You have to understand what that’s like because the trust that you have with your audience is the most important thing in the world.”
