1. Affiliate marketing setup: here is a complete affiliate marketing set up. I think you might love I show you exactly as it is on my website, because I've been trying to do affiliate marketing for a long time. If you've heard affiliate marketing is a great way to make money, the question then is how to do it. How to set it up, how to honestly present your affiliate links in a manner that's useful and helpful for people. I'll show you my set up first, and I'll explain a basic question. Answer. Jury. Well, what what is affiliate marketing? Affiliate marketing is basically using your links on your website or YouTube to sell someone else's product. So it'll make sense when I show you exactly this how I've set this up. I have a page of my website where the basic premises of it, as you see up here in the left, it says, What do I use? The idea is that this page is a list of all the resource is I use in my business. This page on my website then shares links to all the products and services I used to run my business This way. If you like how my business looks and is presented online. If you like the for example, you like on my website loads them. I've got my website host listed here. Exactly. I've got my WordPress theme listed here. Exactly. So then I have it set up. If say, you come to my website and you're thinking about making a website and you're like, I wonder what Jiri uses. Well, I've got website domain and hosting listed right here. And then you had apply coupon. It takes you through an affiliate link and then you get a 99 cent dot com with go daddy. And if you click over then and say go to WordPress hosting which I then have this option, then I get an affiliate commission. If you buy any of those, the point of this page is to share all the things I used because it's really hard to go figure these out yourself. It took me hours and hours and hours to Google and all so many frustrating ones with different website host to figure out one that worked for me. What I do on this page then, is just honestly present what I use. You'll see. I don't present a bunch of other options of other hosts. I show you. I say use Go, Daddy, I say specifically used. Go, Daddy, manage WordPress hosting which of you click on it, then it takes you straight there. I say exactly what I use in present it. So I just present one option for each. So I sure use Go, Daddy. Here, my exact wordpress. Same if you like my WordPress team. Then I have an exact link to my WordPress theme, which you can see I'm signed in. I'm already purchased. And I've got support on my wordpress theme as well. So this makes it so much easier than because you can see my complete business set up. Well, Jerry, what are you recording this video on? I've got wire cast. Seven pro for Mac. That's exactly what I use. Guess what? You click the link. You're right on the store. Yes, Actually, this version I've cost has cost almost $1000 plus 300 upgraded every time a new version comes out. It works really good though, because I can live stream with this and it does the green screen in the background. What have I recorded most of them with Camped Asia. So obviously I don't need to go through and click on every single fill it link for you to get the idea. What you've got on this page is a complete list of all the things I use. I challenge you then on your website. If you have one, if you're going to make one or if you want to do affiliate market every challenge you to come up with a list of everything you use and then put that list on your website. What I hope is that this page is genuinely helpful. It's not about me getting affiliate commissions. This is a page that, in and of itself, I hope is help form worth sharing because I've looked hard to figure out. OK, well, what I used to host my podcast. I already have a podcast. You don't have to guess the research. If you like my podcasts in list into my podcast. Here's my exact podcast hosting I use and I often then have coupons that go with things. So I've got even things like Amazon prime that are essential that you might not think of like, Well, why does that matter for your business. I list things like this and then explain how I use them. I love the two day shipping when I decide. Oh, I need a new microphone or I need another HD in my cable. I need another monitor. I can quickly just order it on prime and get that free fast shipping, which in ST Petersburg, Florida. Even a same day delivery. It's incredibly sweet. And then some affiliate programs have coupons like this. So if you were for a friend, I get I get a little referral thing and you get 50% off versus buying it straight up. So I've got all the stuff I list and I challenge you as a project for this class. Make a list is deep is I've made of all the things you use in your business. And if you don't have a business set up, you can learn how to make one from this list here. Or you can just list things on another. For example, if you do graphic design, you don't have a business. You could put all the things using your graphic design, all the software, all the plug ins if you make music. You could put your exact thing used to make music along with all the plug ins, all the sound effects if you make videos, you could put all those things into any kind of list like this I feel is really useful because it's an inventory. Them heres something like I got a personal loan and then I've got are lending club link here that then you might not even think to look for capital. If you make a similar list like this for someone else, you might really motivate and inspire someone else to be helped, as you might be helped here. And if you are thinking, well, how do you make it nice with these boxes like this and these big buttons, you don't have to do it like that. You can just start off because the main purpose of doing this initially is to help you take inventory of what you use. When you see all the ways you spend money, all the products and services you have, then you might realize, you know what? Maybe I don't need hoot suite, for example. I don't think I use that anymore, and then you you can start. I actually canceled my subscription for that. So then you can go through. Once you see all these things you use, you can start cutting them. You can start saying, Well, maybe I don't need that anymore. Maybe I don't need to keep this extra software on my computer program, etcetera. And the nice thing is, this is a really easy way to write it out. So I initially just wrote it all out like this and then in writing it all out. Then I started figuring out what people really clicked on. What things made a little bit of money. And then I put these more clickable buttons on it. So I'll show you if you like my wordpress theme. I'll show you exactly how to edit this in my WordPress theme. So I click edit page up on the top is, I'm signed in, and then when I want to do is update this so you'll see how easy this is the update. So what I want to do is go down to the bottom here, and I want to do a couple of things at once. With this. I've updated. I keep updating things. So when I first made this page. I used to use you to me. Well, now there's no point putting you to me on their all. And I use teachable to host my online courses. But now I've got skill share on here. Now I've got an actual skill share affiliate link I can use. So I've been sending people there with no skill share link. Well, now what I've got is my exact skill share referral link. So I edit this up and I click open in new tab. I hit save, and then I can right click open that in the incognito window, so it'll give me the referral. So now you see Juries giving you three months a premium for 99 cents. Now, if someone uses skill share, then they can go over here and I'll get $10 if they sign up. Plus, I think royalties. So you keep a list like this consistently updated over time. That way it stays current. If you discover you don't need to use anything anymore, you just cut that off. And now what I want to dio now that I've started using skill share Now what I want to do is make one of these boxes for skill share and put it on top, so I can easily just copy this box. You'll see now it says website domain and hosting. Now I'm going to put up here video courses and hosting, and when I'll put up here and now, I'll put skill share in right here. So instead of Go Daddy, I will now put skill. Share is where I am making all of my new online video courses and is what I used to host and is skill shares. When I'm using to make all of my new there, That's ultra simple. Let's just keep it like that. So I go over, grab my skill share referral link, which then nicely goes straight over to my page, plus as an affiliate link. It's incredible system skill shares got ultra simple and effective. It goes to my profile, shows all of my courses, and then I just go over here and I need that same link again. So I hit Save. Now what I have to do is I just need to edit the buttons so eyes change this button out here, paste that in and and then instead of using the apply coupon. One I want to do is hit view courses. So I hit save. I'll go up here and hit Update on this now and you'll see them the live change on the website as that's come out here. So I hit view page on this and now I've got If someone wants to know what is your use for video course and hosting one of things I'm most known for now I've got a skill share referral link that not only sends people to my courses, it also then drops an affiliate link that if anyone signs up, I get $10. So it encourages people to go watch my courses and it has a chance to make $10 people sign up. So now I think that's one of the things people are most interested in. So I put that at the top. The beautiful thing with this theme in this set up is I can then shuffle this around based on how much money is being made. Right now. I just reorganized this and figured to put go daddy at the top right now. Go. Daddy is making no money, though, whereas the WordPress demon seems to be making more money. So I can just swap that easily and put the WordPress theme in place of the website domain and hosting there. I can even put if something down here starts making good referrals. I can then put that up here on the top. So I've put skill share on the top. I most excited to put this up there towards the top. I hope this class has been useful for you. And I love this.
