5 Ways to Increase Your Affiliate Earnings

Affiliate marketers have a distinct advantage over sellers because they have none of the responsibility for product creation and management of the affiliate program. They simply get to seek out the best products to sell, and launch their promotions. They can promote many different products at once in both the tangible as well as digital arena. They also never have to deal with the customer service issues. But one thing many affiliates struggle with is increasing their earnings. They might find great products, understand the ins and outs of list building as well as pre-selling, but not have the insight necessary to bump up their income to the next level. Below, I have listed five strategies you can use to help boost your earnings.



Be on the Lookout for Savings and Value Your job as an affiliate is to help consumers find the products they need. You’re the liaison between searching and solutions. But you can make more sales convert better if you go the extra mile. It all boils down to money and added value. Whenever you’re about to promote something, try to find a way to do the following for your customer. Let’s look at how: If you’re an affiliate for Amazon, you can log into the Associates center and look at their promotions hub. There, you will learn about specials that are percentage discounts, free trials, and even pre-order specials. Share this with your customers and help them find products that are marked down for a certain period of time. The ones that are not on-going will add a sense of urgency, too.


If you are promoting a tool online like Aweber or Hostgator, look for specials you can brag about to your potential customers. For example, Aweber has a $1 first month trial and Hostgator offers steep discounts through your affiliate links when you set up certain coupon codes. If you’re promoting info products, look for or ask the seller about different offers they have set up. Some marketers will be selling their product for full price on their mini site, but a discount on a forum section. If they do not have any specials running, you can ask for them to set up a special discount just for your list. Some will set up an on-going one and others will allow you to run a special discount for a limited time. Do not worry about losing income when you’re promoting discounts. The volume of sales you get will increase because shoppers are looking for budget-friendly deals they can buy.



Don’t just promote. Most affiliates do little more than write a keyword-laced article and slap an affiliate link or two in it, hoping to make a buck or two. That is small-time commission thinking. What you want are big earnings and you get those results from dominating as a leader in your niche. Even without a product of your own, you can be the go to person for your target audience when it comes to product recommendations. Right now there are thousands (if not millions) of affiliates out there trying to compete for the attention of cash-in-hand consumers. How will you set yourself apart and get the click-through?


You do this by creating genuine reviews, not keyword-laced promotion articles. There is a big difference between someone writing for the search engines and someone who values their reputation enough to make sure they carefully recommend only the best of the best. If possible, purchase the product you’re promoting. If it is a tangible item and you can’t buy it, then maybe you can visit a physical store and test it out to see how it works. Then, write a personalized review of it with both pros and cons.


But what if it is a digital product? You can purchase those as well and review it from the very first step where you land on the sales copy through to the end results. Again, money might be an object at first. If it is, resist the temptation to buy and refund the product. That can get you blacklisted and it damages the seller’s statistics for conversions and refunds. Instead, email the seller and ask if they might be willing to provide you with a free review copy. If you have already established reviews on your blog that you can point them to, share them because it will prove to them that their gift will not go to waste. Let people know the truth about the products and don’t make behind-the-scenes deals to write glowing testimonials. Your responsibility is to your readers, not to sellers willing to cut a deal.



Conduct a comparison between products One way to get people to spend money is to pit one product up against another and let one of them emerge victorious. Your readers are looking for solutions. They want the best value. This means a combination of quality and monetary investment. You can continue doing comparison reviews and these can be really fun. It’s also interesting to see the product sellers increase the value of their products when they see how the competition is beating them in the eye of the consumer. Take a little time to figure out what solution your audience needs.


For example, maybe it’s an Amazon Affiliate product. Start a series of reviews where you pit each product up against each other for different things, including:

  • Sales Copy
  • Price
  • Amount you get for the investment
  • Number of formats presented (and options ñ ie: text/video)
  • How many nuggets of information you pick up
  • Quality of the information


Make sure you implement each one and then discuss the results as a case study. In order for this to work, you may need to find similar products, such as video courses or products priced around the same amount. They should have some similar elements in order for you to be able to make a comparison, otherwise they will just deserve their own individual reviews.


You can also do this with tiers, where you pit two products against each other and determine the winner. Then, pit two other products against each other and find a winner. Then take both winners and pit them against each other based on results you have achieved and other issues like how the seller’s customer service is, etc. This can be very entertaining as well as extremely helpful to the reader as they will read their comparisons of products/services in a bracket tournament style of review structure.



Expand Beyond the Usual Boundaries What’s the typical method for promoting products as an affiliate? It’s to blog. But you want to do a little more than that. A well researched and designed blog is great and it’s one of the best ways to earn a living as an affiliate because of the following factors:

  • It’s inexpensive (just a domain, hosting and autoresponder)
  • It’s easy to operate
  • It tends to rank well when you run one properly


You should never forego a blog for other methods, because with other methods, you don’t own the virtual real estate and ownership is where you have peace of mind. Instead, you want to combine blogging with other strategic methods. Blogging is just one method, and to increase your affiliate sales, you can add other methods of content online to make the entire process a lot more synergistic. Let’s go over a few of them and you can look for more on your own as well.


Forums can be a good place to do some affiliate marketing, if it is allowed. You have to know the rules before you go spamming the place with hyperlinks. Make sure you have a link to your reviews or directly to the products (if allowed) in your signature file, which is a space below each post that contains content you create, text, hyperlink or image.


Twitter is a great place for affiliate marketing because it doesn’t require a lot of content and you are allowed to promote on the site without apology. Don’t get yourself in trouble by spamming other people with Tweets because then you will get banned. But, people do search for things on Twitter, and you can make affiliate commissions even if you don’t have a million plus followers just yet. Make sure you follow people in the niche so that they’ll follow you and hopefully you’ll get your links seen by more potential buyers.


FaceBook fan pages are a premium way to make affiliate sales! If you can build a fan page or group on Facebook, then you can do the same thing you can do on a blog and pretty much just write long posts, insert hyperlinks, and engage in comments. Just bear in mind that you don’t own this site, so at any time you could wake up tomorrow and it might be gone. This is why it’s great to use in conjunction with an affiliate blog to increase your earnings.


Pinterest is newer in the field of social networks, but no less effective. Pinterest is built on images, but you can Pin things directly from Amazon and then do an update on the Pin to swap out their hyperlink with your affiliate one. People follow your boards and then re-pin them on their own boards and before you know it, your recommendations have gone viral. You can do the same with digital products for topics like weight loss, for example. This is a huge niche on Pinterest.


Email marketing lists are another way to increase sales. This is my absolute personal favorite of mine because most of it can become so automated once you create all the content up front. Some affiliates mistakenly believe they don’t need to build a list when they are just affiliates and not product creators. But you should want to build a list regardless because that way you can repeatedly market to the same individuals who have proven that they are buyers in the past. I wrote an article on just this called: How to do Email marketing effectively  Give away something free to get them on your list and then email them whenever you have a new review on your blog or whenever you want to link directly to a product and review it or promote it within the email itself. If you are looking for something to offer your list for free, You can offer them a free $300 advertising package on my website if you want.

Emphasize your personalization in your content. Personalization will always win out over cold, sterile content. Whenever you are writing your next review, forget about keywords and product specs. Focus initially on connecting with the emotions of the buyer. What would you feel if you were in their shoes? Would it be shame, humiliation, desperation, eagerness, hope, or what? You want to be able to discuss your own emotions as you implement or use a product regardless of if it is tangible or digital.


People buy from people they trust. When you write about an acne solution, for example, it’s great to give information about ingredients in a product or strategies for keeping pimples at bay. But more importantly, the consumer will turn over their payment information as soon as they feel a connection with you based on feelings. If you felt relief and relief is what they are after, then you are more apt to get a sale than if you just spouted off a list of ingredients. Hopefully that makes sense.


These are just a few ways that you can increase your affiliate earnings. I teach a lot more on how I do this exact strategy marketing programs and platforms with affiliate programs in the cryptocurrency niche. You can learn more by going to ViralStacking.com
