up and running live. So, without further ado let’s jump right into this free guide and tutorial. So, first off I wanna say guy I created this free How to Start
Affiliate Marketing Step by Step Guide and at first I was just gonna make a video okay? Because I did a live video last week that seemed to resonate
with a ton of people. Crazy positive reactions and responses and basically what I showed in that video is why you need to start
affiliate marketing right now and why this is a fantastic
business opportunity for the present day and why it’s never been easier then ever
before simply because one, it doesn’t cost that much. Again, $76 today you
can have a full business up and running that looks
just like this right here. This is my first affiliate
marketing business that went on to generate
over $3,000 a month and the start cost again, we’re
just $76 all included, okay? And that’s gonna be
your startup cost today. Basically, in that video I shared how it was easy basically to start a business for less than
a hundred bucks, okay? I went through all the steps
of creating a brand, right? Making a website and applying
for the affiliate programs, promoting affiliate
products, creating content and then getting traffic and we’re gonna go over all those things today. I’m gonna answer all those questions and the number one question I get is how to start affiliate marketing. Even after people watch
hours of my videos, they’re still left with that question and the truth is the reason why this is such a tricky thing to answer and why I’ve taken the steps today to not only make a step by
step video with Screen Share and show every single step but I went, took it a step further
and actually created a free guide and a resource on my website. So, the link is gonna
be in the description but if you guys wanna visit
odiproduction.com/start, S-T-A-R-T then you’re gonna see this free guide right here
and it’s completely free. You don’t even need to put your email. Now there is an email signup if you want the guide emailed to you and if you wanna get
steps sent to you daily so that you can break down
this process even more, but it’s not required. It’s completely free. There’s no strings attached. And so the reason I created this guide and I’m making this video is because my last live video where I showed people the steps and I showed people how tangible it was and I actually got so many people who were commenting and emailing me telling me that they’d
finally started their business and the issue is when you’re a beginner, the problem is that when
you’re just dreaming and researching and studying but you’re not actually building an actual business, like you don’t have
something to show somebody, and that’s the problem when you’re an entrepreneur and
you’re getting started, your parents and you’re friends, right? You’re tellin’ ’em that you’re
gonna be an entrepreneur, that you’re studying business and you’re studying
marketing and this and that but if you don’t actually
have something to show them, people ask you what’s
your business, right? And you don’t even have
a website to show them. You don’t even have something that you can literally show them to show that you are a real entrepreneur, then you’re just a wantrepreneur
at the end of the day. If you are just studying and
reading and watching videos, you’re not an entrepreneur. You’re not building or creating things that give back to the economy and that provide value for the world. So today we’re gonna
change all that, okay? We’re gonna build something
today, something awesome. Just like my first affiliate
business and my first website that actually provided
real value to people, the reason why I was able to go on to generate $3,000 a month. So, basically we’re gonna
break it down step by step and this process I’m
about to show you guys is seven years of experience
and this right here I think is the absolute best way for a beginner to get started with affiliate marketing
because one, it’s just low risk. At $76 even if this
doesn’t become profitable and it doesn’t go on to succeed, at the end of the day
it’s only 76 bucks so, we’re not missing out on
thousands and thousands of dollars through something like eCommerce, right? We’re not risking that much money. We’re boot strapping. It’s a lean startup and we’re keeping our startup costs to a minimum but at the same time we’re
creating a real value business that you can actually
show somebody, right? That you can actually be proud of right? So basically, when you visit this free guide on
odiproductions.com/start, again link is in the description, these are resources, these
are the things that I use, the software I use, the tools I use. I’m just gonna show you
guys everything that I use for my business and hopefully
it can help you as well. So, if you go through,
you’ll see the first page is all the steps and you
can see we got step one, choose a niche and we’re gonna go into each and every one of those steps. In this video I’m gonna
walk you guys through it, but basically if you scroll down, you’ll see all the steps
in one page, right? And I just realized that if you really wanna help someone and teach them, it takes more than just a video and this video that
I’m recording right now is gonna be up here for
you guys to reference. So if you wanna bookmark this video, share this video, bookmark this website so that you guys can refer
to it again and again, then I suggest you do that but basically, you can use this video to kind of walk you through step by step and then you can use the webpage to actually give you access to all the
resources, to all the links, to all the software that I use and to actually do the process. So I’m gonna be using this resource throughout this video, all right? So, now that that’s out of the way, let’s get started with creating your business today and we’re gonna start from the beginning with
step number one, all right? So, step number one is choosing a niche. Now, I have a video right here and one thing you’ll see throughout this guide and you can go into each of the individual steps
at the top by the way, and you can actually see basically the step in more detail, okay? This page right here,
the all steps is just to give you guys an
overview of everything. Now, you can just use this one page and create your business, but if you wanna go deeper into things and learn more you can click
any of these links at the top. So, the first step is choosing a niche and my biggest advice with this, right? Now, I’ve made a video called Best Niches In Affiliate
Marketing for Beginners, and I actually include it here. Basically you guys, if
there’s any relevant videos I’ve made in the past that I think are really really helpful for each step I’m gonna include it in this guide. Now, the big thing I wanna say is don’t worry about picking the perfect niche the first time okay? Nobody hits a home run on their first try. That’s one thing I wanna
share with you guys, and with the business
we’re creating today, even if you choose one niche today you can create another business or a third business or a fourth business very easily for pretty much the same cost or minimal cost and go into another niche if you decide to change your mind. So, just don’t feel that you have to get married to this
one niche all right? And I’m gonna show you
in here on the website, you guys are actually gonna see dozens of profitable niches
that I’m gonna list out. Basically you can see health, wealth, electronics, fashion,
hobbies and within that there are so many different niches that you guys can check out. I’m not gonna read them all to save time and so that we can keep this movin’, but if you want to to learn even more, then you can watch this video. But again, my biggest advice is don’t get too caught up in choosing the
perfect niche the first time. The goal is we get started right now so that you learn the fundamentals and the process and then we can expand to other niches in the future very easily and for pretty much the same cost or just a minimal additional cost, okay? On top of that $76. So, the first step,
choosing a niche, right? So, that’s the first thing we wanna do because we wanna have an idea of what kind of industry we’re gonna get into because our next step is all gonna be about building our business
and branding, okay? So, once you’ve chosen a niche and again, refer to the website so you can do more research and
also watch this video, it will really help in terms of deciding if you should go after your passion or go after profit when it comes to your affiliate marketing business. Now, let’s move on to
step number two all right? Now step number two is finding an available website name
related to your niche. Now, some of you may be asking do you need a website to start affiliate marketing? Is it necessary? And I’m gonna say the answer is yes. I’m gonna show you guys right now exactly why you need a website to
do affiliate marketing. So, some of my favorite affiliate programs include Amazon Associates,
Commission Junction, ShareASale and Direct Affiliate Programs and right now we’re
gonna do this together. I’m gonna apply for the Amazon
Associates Affiliate Program. So, right here I have the
application opened up. I’ve already answered the first part which is the account information and creating an Amazon account for free, but now you’re gonna see, they’re gonna ask you to
list your website, okay? Enter your websites
plural and it’s required. And it says right here if you read this, you need to add at least
one website or mobile app. You can add up to 50
websites or mobile apps. Now, luckily we don’t
need to have 50 websites but you do need to have at least one. Now, this is just Amazon Associates. This is the largest affiliate program that gives you access to affiliate links for any product that’s
on Amazon’s Marketplace. All of a sudden if you can promote any product that’s on Amazon, you’ve opened up every single niche that you can think of right? Now let me move on to
another affiliate program and this is called Commission Junction. Commission Junction has
some of the largest brands in the world including I believe Nike, Bose, I think Sephora. They have some of the largest brands in the world in Commission Junction, okay? Now, you can choose to become a partner with the world’s best brands
and you sign up right? As a publisher, okay? So if you go onto the website, now I’ll have links to that on this page on the free resource, the free guide. So don’t worry about that. You guys will see that if you scroll down. But basically when you’re applying for Commission Junction, right? So, the next step that’s gonna happen is they’re gonna ask you again, aside from your information
and it says stuff here like company name, address. Now, the thing is if you don’t have a company you can just put your name. It actually says that right here, but they’re gonna ask you
again for your website. Website information all right? Do you guys see a pattern emerging here? Amazon Associates,
Commission Junction, okay? They ask you for your website name, the URL which just means the domain and then describing your website, the category and unique monthly visitors. Now, don’t worry if you don’t have any visitors because there is an option for not yet launched and
that’s completely fine, okay? And that’s what we’re doin’ today. We’re launching our business. We’re in the prelaunch phase. Now, let me move on to
another affiliate program just to drive the point home, okay? This is ShareASale. ShareASale has again,
some of the largest brands in the world when it comes to just consumer products
and affiliate marketing. Now, I’m signing up for
the affiliate program here and what do you know? Primary affiliate website. What is the website
associated with your account? Other website may be added
to the account later. Another thing I wanna say guys is, so we’re creating this website, right? It doesn’t need to be the be all end all or your final website. That’s why I say in step one, don’t get too tied up with
choosing the perfect niche ’cause you can always
create more websites, more businesses and more brands later. The key is that we have something so that we can apply for
these affiliate programs and get in to the affiliate
program and once you’re inside, look, you can add other websites later. So, don’t worry about
choosing the perfect niche or even creating the
perfect website to start, you just need something to
get your foot in the door. Once you’re in you’re in and then you can make multiple websites go after different niches and industries afterwards and basically you see
here they’re asking you for a website and it says important, you must have an operate
at least one website in order to create an affiliate
account at shareasale.com. So, I hope that drives the point home why a website is necessary because the largest affiliate
programs in the world, they all require a website and even if they did not require a website, the reason why we wanna make a website is so that you actually
have a real business with tangible assets okay? Now we’re gonna get into
that a little bit later, but essentially you wanna
create something that one day, think about this, that you could sell to someone else for money. Now, when you don’t have a website and you’re just spamming
your affiliate links, right? And even if you make some sales, you don’t have a real business. You’re just a salesman, right? When you have an actual website, right? That gets visitors, that gets sales, that gets traffic, right? That has an email list,
now we’re talking about a real company that has assets that you could even sell one day for a profit and usually people are willing to pay 10 to 12 times the monthly revenue. So if your business is
making $10,000 a month, someone may be willing to pay you up to $120,000 or more depending on your niche or industry. But 120 grand to buy your website, okay? Now, that’s what having affiliate marketing business is all about. Not just being an affiliate marketer and making sales but having a business. So, the next step, number two is I want you guys to find an available
website name related to your niche and one thing I did to help you guys out is on this page you can actually search
up available domains right from this widget right here, okay? And then you can look up any website name and I recommend you guys go for a .com. Now, if you can’t find a .com, this is just a tip but you can use alternatives like
.co, .net, .org, okay? And even something like .io
which is not listed here which seems to be more
popular as of late for a lot of kind of tech websites
and just newer websites. But basically get creative, okay? And another tip I have for people when you’re trying to find a domain and just remember that this domain is gonna be your brand. Yeah, it’s the name of
your website and your URL. It’s also gonna be your brand in the sense that we are
gonna take this website and we are going to go all out in terms of getting a custom logo done. We’re gonna make it look real professional just like my first
business recordingnow.com. I have a custom professional logo which I got made for less than $10 and I’ll show you guys
how later in this video, but basically this is a brand, right? Recordingnow.com. RecordingNOW the logo, right? Even just the theme of the colors. This is what branding looks like. So, first thing is first is you need to find a website name and you need to find something that’s available, okay? Again, if you can’t
find your first choice, get creative but once you find
something that’s available, it’s gonna take you to step number three automatically, okay? And it’s gonna look like this. So, step number three. When you get a domain that’s available and you can see right here, I just typed in just something random. So the domain’s available
and it’s gonna ask you to create an account and also to sign up and this is where the bulk of the $76 fee comes from is because we need to create a
website and the reason why again is if you want to
get to affiliate programs, especially the biggest ones
and the top affiliate programs, you must have a website which is what I’m helping you guys with today. So once you have the domain name and it’s available they’ll
ask you to create an account. Now, what we’re looking
at here is web hosting. Now, what’s web hosting? It’s basically renting servers online so we can have a website and we can have the website live on the internet and we’re building this website on a platform called WordPress, okay? Now, WordPress is actually free. Now the issue is and the reason why we have to pay for web hosting is because we need to have a website live on the internet so other
people can visit the website. Now you can’t do that
unless you have a server and most people don’t have a web server sitting in their living room
or in their office, right? What we do is we rent servers online and it starts for as
little as $2.95 a month. Now, I wanna say this is an affiliate link that you’re gonna see here on this page, but this affiliate link actually can only save you money, yeah. That’s right. So, when we’re talkin’
about affiliate links and obviously we’re learning
how to do affiliate marketing, now on this page you’re
gonna find some of the links that are gonna have
exclusive discounts, okay? Up to 33% off for web hosting. So, it can take the price down from $3.95 a month to just $2.95 a month minimum starting price. Now, the reason why I recommend
Bluehost is because one, I use this web hosting company myself and I’ve used it for
multiple affiliate websites. I’ve never had a problem with it and in fact I’m actually gonna take you guys to wordpress.org which is the official website
and if you guys click this, you can actually see the
recommended WordPress web host and what do you know? Bluehost is actually
at the top right here, and so basically WordPress, the platform that we’re gonna use which runs 27% of the
entire worldwide web, chances are the affiliate blog or affiliate website
that you’re looking at or that you’ve seen is
ran on WordPress, okay? And so to use WordPress you
need to have web hosting. These are some of the
top web hosting companies and the ones that are officially
recommended by WordPress. I prefer Bluehost. It’s the number one
web host on their page, and I’m just gonna read this real quick. Why Bluehost? Powering over two million websites, Bluehost offers the
ultimate WordPress platform and that’s from wordpress.org themselves. Tune for WordPress. We offer WordPress, centric
dashboards and tools along with one click
installation, a free domain name. So that website that you chose in step two usually costs about 12
to $15 a year, okay? Not that much but you actually get that for free if you sign up with the web hosting deal that we have here through Bluehost on this page. And you get free email, FTP and more. Easily scalable and backed
by legendary 24/7 support by in house WordPress experts. And again, the support on Bluehost is, they have live chat support, the have email support and it’s been some of the most responsive
and quickest support I’ve got and I’ve used basically all the top web hosting
companies that you can think of. I’ve tried a lot of different ones and hands down when it comes to using a WordPress website and building an affiliate website specifically, Bluehost has been my go to for years and it’s what I personally
use on my websites as well. So, that’s step number three,
signing up for web hosting. Now, I’m gonna walk you guys through this. When you find the domain
and it’s available, basically you fill out your information. Now I’m gonna guide you guys through the package information and what I recommend and I’m also gonna share with you guys what you need and what you don’t need to save
you guys money as well. So, the first thing I wanna say is if you wanna get that lowest price, basically you need to sign up for a 36 month plan which
is a three year plan. Now, when you do this what’s interesting is that it’s actually only a little bit over a hundred dollars okay? And that’s for three years guys. When you break it down that’s
like 33, 34, $35 per year to have a website and a business live. Now, again I said $76 and I’m
gonna stay true to my word. So if I go down to the 12 month price, it goes a little bit up to
$4.95 a month but again guys, less than five bucks a month to have a real business live on the internet that looks just like this, okay? And that actually provides real value, gets thousands of visits,
gets affiliate sales and makes thousands of
dollars per month is possible with the same exact $4.95
per month plan, okay? Now $4.95, that’s literally cheaper then the coffee that I’ve been drinking and I drink a lot of coffee. When it came down to creating
this free guide last week I didn’t even upload a YouTube video because I want to make this guide, okay? And I hope you guys enjoy it, I hope it provides value for you guys but you can see each one of these coffees was anywhere between five to $6 depending on if I tipped or not and basically, for the price of one of these per month, you can have a business live
on the internet today, okay? So I hope I can just express to you guys how lucky we are to be able to have a real business that has a chance to really make a significant income for less than the price of a cup of coffee every single month. So, as you can see our hosting price dropped down to just $59.40. Literally less than $60 and you can have a website for one year
live on the internet. Now, the next thing is the package extras. Now these are mostly
upsells and I’m just gonna give you guys my advice on this to save you guys a little money. Personally the only one I would get out of this is the domain privacy protection. Now, this is only 99 cents per month but what it does is that when you create a website or you actually register a domain online right? People can actually
look up the information of who owns the domain. This is called who is
information and basically, if you sign for domain privacy protection, what happens is it hides
your personal information and it keeps it private and when people look at your who is information
about your name and address, basically it just shows
up a bunch of gibberish or it just shows up the
information for Bluehost, okay? Their company shows
like Utah as the address and it basically hides
your personal information. Now, obviously on the internet I like to keep things private. So, I think that this is well
worth 99 cents per month. I mean that’s 12 bucks
over the course of a year. Less than that and I think it’s worth it. So if you combine those two things, a whole year of web
hosting at $4.95 a month and then 99 cents a month for
domain privacy protection, that gives us a grand
total of just $71.28. So we’re still under the $76 mark that I shared with you guys. So, yeah basically you can
see some savings right here. 44% off when you use the affiliate link that’s on that page or in the description of this video if you want quicker access. But basically $71 you can have a whole website just like
this for an entire year, okay? And if you wanna do three
years it’s even cheaper. It goes down to like $35 a year, okay? So, that’s basically step number three. You’re gonna sign up for the web hosting and if you want you can check out the other official WordPress
recommended web host, but again Bluehost is
the one I personally use. It’s the one I believe in, it’s the one that’s number
one on wordpress.org. So, I wouldn’t use
anything else basically. All right guys, so step number four is actually building our
website within WordPress. So, after you sign up for web hosting, you’re gonna be greeted with a dashboard that looks like this. This is the WordPress dashboard. Now, it may be confusing at first and it may be a little overwhelming but I’m gonna walk you
guys through exactly how to use this and I’m gonna make it a lot easier to use WordPress for you. Now the number one tip I’m
gonna share with you guys and this is gonna completely transform your WordPress experience and after years of developing websites on
old school HTML and CSS, Adobe Dreamweaver and now WordPress, this is gonna change
the game for you guys. Now, WordPress by default
is very sort of basic. It kinda looks like the blog, okay? So I’m gonna show you guys. This is what a normal WordPress website, I do actually have a theme on here. This is not just the stock theme, but even then just look at this. How boring is this guys, right? There’s nothing exciting going on. There’s no colors, it’s
a very boring website and it’s just not something that’s gonna get the job done, okay? So I’m gonna close out of this and we’re gonna go back into
our WordPress dashboard. I’m gonna show you guys how we can turn this into a
Drag & Drop Editor, okay? Super easy to use. Anyone can do this. It’s gonna transform your
experience with using WordPress. So, the first thing I’m gonna do, if you guys, if anyone wants to do this and it’s completely free, all you do is you go to plugins on the left hand sidebar
and click Add New, okay? So, plugins, Add New. Left hand sidebar, okay? Now we’re gonna search up
and I’m gonna search up for a plugin called Elementor, okay? Elementor. Yes it sounds like a
superhero or super villain and you’re actually gonna have links to Elementor here as well but basically, this is a free plugin. Completely free and it
transforms your WordPress editor into a Drag & Drop page builder which I’ll demonstrate
for you guys right now. Now I already have Elementor built onto or installed and all you have
to do to install something, I don’t even know what this is, all you have to do is click Install Now and then all you have to
do after that is activate. Boom. See? I just did that live for you guys. Now, with Elementor basically, they have over three
million active installs on websites and it
just, just look at this. The most advanced front end
Drag & Drop page builder. I mean, it’s just amazing
and if you’re a beginner who’s making a WordPress website I would not create or
have a WordPress install without having this plugin and it’s free. Free to start. Now the one I use is a pro version. It just gives you more templates and more features but you
don’t need that to start. So it’s free technically. So, I’m gonna create a page. Now a page is something like a home page, contact us page, about us page. That’s a page and then you have post. Now a post can be
something like a blog post, it can be an article, it can be a review of a affiliate product, okay? I’m gonna show you guys that in a bit, but we’re gonna create a page first. So, when you go into Pages, all you have to do is Add New, and I was already working on one so I’m gonna open this up and basically I was working on a contact us page, okay? And I have the title right here, okay? And you can see the link. You can even change the name of the link, the slug right here to contact us and then if we just preview this I’ll show you what it looks like stock, okay? Again, it’s the stock WordPress. I’m using a theme that is, it’s a theme that I
downloaded but it’s free and it’s got a picture in the background, it’s kinda cool but still, it’s kind of a boring
website to be honest. It’s not really that slick. It doesn’t look that cool. So, what we’re gonna do is we’re gonna actually switch this around
and start using Elementor to supercharge our design of our website. So the first thing we wanna do is after you have
installed you’re gonna see a button that’s like Edit With Elementor, available thanks to our install to plugin but the first thing you need to do is we need to switch over the template from this boring stock
template to Elementor. So what we do is we go
into Page Attributes here on the right hand sidebar, okay? Page Attributes and you’re
gonna go into Elementor Canvas. And this is just starting
with a blank slate, okay? And then I’m just gonna click
update just to save that. Every time you want to publish or update your page there’s a blue button, it basically makes it
live on the internet. So, now that we’ve changed it to Elementor Canvas for the template, now I’m gonna edit with
Elementor and you’re gonna see that things are just gonna be so much easier and so much
better from the get go. So, when we get into Elementor, all of a sudden now we have just free reign to do whatever we want. Now the first thing I wanna do, now it’s hard when you’re a beginner and you don’t know where to start. Use a template. That is my number one tip. Once you start using Elementor
use templates and boom. We have all these templates
and a lot of these are free. This is free, that’s free. Anything that doesn’t have
the pro on the top right means it’s a completely free thing to use and you can actually preview some of these and this is a pro one but just look how beautiful
this about us page is and this could be your
about us on your website if you want to at the click of a button. Now, I’m gonna show you guys. We’re gonna create a
contact us page, right? So, I’m actually gonna search up contact and you’ll see we have
all these templates. These are free, the ones
that don’t have pro. I’m gonna use a pro one
just to show you guys. I have pro on my account and I just really like this template right here
so I’m gonna click Insert. Once you click Insert, Elementor does the work for you and boom. Look at this, we have a contact us page. So simple, so easy. And if you don’t like something, I don’t like this anymore
I’m gonna take it out. Delete, boom. Contact us. Contact us for kitchen, whoops,
kitchen recommendations. Do you see how easy it is? I’m just Drag & Drop editing this. If you wanna change some words, you can easily click this. Email us and we’ll get back
to you within 24 hours. Yes, I know I type pretty fast, right? Just kidding. But basically you can see we have this beautiful contact us page and you can implement and
integrate whatever you want, whatever emails you want, wherever you want this to get sent to. This is a widget, okay? A widget is like something that’s dynamic that for example like a contact us. You can send it to your email. You can choose what email it gets sent to and you guys can actually see right here. You can edit all of that. So, you will put your email here so that you receive all the emails that come through this form. So you just your email,
the one that you want to receive messages from
from your website and again, everything is Drag & Drop. Everything is Drag & Drop. You wanna change this picture all you have to do is click into it and you click this pencil icon and you
can choose the image. You can remove this one and put a new one. You can upload any image you want. So, I hope you guys can see the power of Elementor and again, this is free to start using. I’m using the pro version which, just again it just has more templates and more sort of widgets like this but at the end of the day
you can start for free and once you’re done you just click update in the bottom left right here, this green button and now all of a sudden, let me show you guys. So, it’s updated, right? So boring stock WordPress. Refresh that. And look at that. Look how beautiful this is and I just clicked a few buttons right? (laughs) I barely did anything. This was the template working for me. So, that’s basically it and
you can do this with any page. Again, there was an about us page. So let me actually see if I
can find that template again. Let me open this up. The about us page using the same sort of blue theme is beautiful. Let me just open that up and
you can create an about us, a contact us, a homepage. These are your main pages and
a page is like a static page. It’s something that doesn’t really change. A post on the other
hand is like an article. It’s like, it’s your content and I’ll show you guys how to make content when we get to that step but basically, what you want to do is
you want to build out your website using WordPress
and using Elementor. Again, Drag & Drop. Simple to use. If you need more resources on WordPress, I’ll try and find some and
include it on this page but literally because 27% of the entire world wide
web runs on WordPress, you can literally just look up anything that you want to do with WordPress and you’ll find plenty of articles that, we can’t cover everything
in this short YouTube video, but obviously you can just search up and you can be resourceful and find tips and tricks that you can
use for your website because there’s so many
resources on WordPress, but I just wanna inspire you guys and put you guys on the right path because if you don’t
include a page builder, again your website is gonna look boring. Like the website, the stock
theme and template is just, it’s kinda ugly, right? But look at this. Beautiful, beautiful website and you guys literally saw me build
this live using a template and I edited it live as
well just clicking it, typing it in, simple. Anything you wanna
edit, all you have to do is you can move things
around just like this. Oops. Let me just show you guys. There you go. You can move things around if you don’t like the order of things. You can just move it around, Drag & Drop. You can delete things with X. You can add elements, add rows and again, it’s just so easy to use this. So, basically that’s it. I’m gonna let you guys just kind of work on your website and again, it’s something that you
can chip away at everyday. Rome wasn’t built in a day, so basically when it
comes to your website, spend some time on it and
you’ll get the hang of it. It’s a bit of a learning
curve in the beginning, but honestly when you’re
using Drag & Drop Editor, I mean all you have to do is just type in and just put it together
and it’s beautiful, right? So, let’s move on to
the next step all right? I wanna keep things moving and let’s move on to step number five. Now this is where things start to change. When people ask me what sets me apart as an affiliate marketer, okay? And the reason why I’ve been able to take multiple affiliate products to over $100,000 each is
because of branding okay? That’s the key, that’s the secret I’m gonna share with you guys here. Now, when it comes to branding, basically all it comes down to is coming up with a catchy name, right? Creating a logo, building
a full website, right? And just making something beautiful that is packaged in a way and
that has a message, right? So, RecordingNOW, your number one source for home recording, right? That’s my message is this
is an authority website where you can trust my opinion on what are the best headphones to buy and you can see right here
tons of headphone reviews. And basically that’s my goal. Your number one source for home recording. If you wanna learn basically what are the best headphones and
this is just my motto, it’s my slogan and I have a brand. Recordingnow.com. I got the .com. Not the .co or anything like that. I got the actual .com
which I’m really proud of and then the logo, right? Getting this logo professionally done. Now, one thing that people don’t know is I got that logo done for
actually, starting at $5. I could have had it done for $5. I think I spent about $10 to be honest but at the end of the day I’m talking about less than $15 to
have a professional, beautiful logo that you can add to your website just like this and I’m gonna show you guys how. All you have to do is click this link and go to Fiver, okay? Again, this is an affiliate link but I just wanna put all the
resources that I personally use for my business on
this web page, okay? Because this is what I actually use. Fiver’s what I use to get this logo done for less than $10 okay? So, basically all you have to do is once you click that link,
you’re gonna land on Fiver. What is Fiver, okay? It’s a freelancer marketplace where you can get any service done for you, and I’m not a graphic designer guys. I don’t know how to create logos and create professional designs and I’m not much of an artist okay? I learned how to do web developing over years of using WordPress just through experience and
practice and trial and error and I learned how to do business and marketing and copywriting, right? But I’m not a graphic designer. I am not, that’s just not what I do. I can’t draw for anything, okay? I’m a terrible drawer. So, what I do is I outsource anything I can do to people who are experts to people who are willing
to do it for just $5 okay? And that’s not an exaggeration. Fiver, the name comes from the fact that all services start at just $5. And look at some of the services. So, logo design you’re
gonna see is at the top here because Fiver’s one of the best places to get a professional logo done. It’s where I got all my logos done including recordingnow.com. And you can see you can have anything you want created here, okay? You can have voiceovers, you can have articles written for you, articles and blog posts, email copy. Even business names and slogans. If you don’t wanna come
up with one yourself, you can literally hire someone for $5 to come up with that and just look at all the things that you can have made. Voiceovers, video editing, okay? Logo animation, intros, outros. If you’re ever wondering
how those YouTubers get their video outros it’s probably through Fiver for as little as $5 guys. It’s not that hard but you,
it’s not that expensive but you get an amazing product. At the end of the day you
get a beautiful logo that, this logo if I were to just put text and just put RecordingNOW and I actually have an example of that. I made this text logo myself. Basically I took different
fonts and I worked with the sizing and stuff
and I made a text logo. Now, it’s not bad but
just look at that compared to this graphical logo with this blue, the white, the black badging and you have this reflection right
here if you guys can see this kind of half moon reflection to give that kind of shiny appearance and then you have these meters, these volume meters because
it’s recordingnow.com. It’s about music, it’s
about home recording. This for just $5, okay? Again, I think I spent $10 so
I can get expedited shipping so I could get it in 24 hours
instead of two or three days but if you’re willing to wait you can get it for 5 buck and that’s it. And they’re gonna ask you hey, do you have a specific design in mind? And you say either you know what you want, you have an idea or you need
someone to help you choose. So I’m gonna choose that because I don’t know what I want and then they’re gonna ask you what’s
your brands personality and now we’re creating a brand and this is the whole point of this video is I want you guys to build a brand and a company today that
you can show somebody, okay? Instead of telling someone
I’m an entrepreneur. I’m working on this, I’m working on that but you have nothing to show for, now you can show ’em your website, show ’em your brand, show ’em your logo and you can be proud of it, right? So I’m gonna choose corporate right here or maybe sophisticated and modern right? I want somethin’ that looks
nice and look at this. Choose a design style, okay? Flat, signature, watercolor, wow, okay? All these look good so I’m gonna do flat and then will you need to edit your logo? No because I don’t know how to edit logos. Will you need to scale
your logo different sizes? Probably, yeah. Just in case. And then boom. And you guys can just see
some of these companies. Here’s one with a 4.9 star average with over 1,000 reviews. They will create a logo
starting at five bucks. You just click into here, you choose a logo designer and boom. They’ll give you two logos,
two basic logo designs. You get the files, you
get the source files so you can even edit
them if you’re into that and you can get it for five bucks. Now, there’s probably gonna be a fee and then also just tax but it’s gonna end up costing about $7 total. There it is, total. $7, delivery time one day. Boom. Okay? All we’re charged with extra is the service fee but
basically $7 total okay? For that delivery time of one day and that’s basically it and now that we have a logo we can add to our website in the top here for our header,
for any promotional material you use whether you make a YouTube video, whatever you wanna do you can include your logo and now you have a real brand that you can stand behind. So, the $5 logo. I always recommend this ’cause
we wanna create a real brand. We wanna think about
this as a real company, not just an affiliate blog, right? We wanna create a company,
a brand that people actually know and understand. I shared this story in the livestream. I met a guy who is actually
a Facebook ads expert okay? This guy manages literally
nine figures a month in advertising spent for his clients, and we’re just getting to know each other. He’d never heard of ODi
Productions or me before, but when I mentioned that I actually, my first affiliate website
was recordingnow.com, because he’s into music and home recording and producing like me he actually had heard of the brand and
he was actually surprised and he said you own recordingnow.com? Oh, I didn’t know that. And it was just so crazy because he didn’t know me as a personal brand and even though I have so many subscribers and I have so much more
traction on my YouTube channel then I do on just this website, he knew the brand just
through the content, through the logo, through the motto, through just creating a
real experience, right? And that’s what I want you guys to do is to create a customer experience when they hear your brand or they see your brand or they see their logo, I want you customers to feel something and to know that you’re a real company, that you’re legit, you know what I mean? That you’re actually putting
effort into it, okay? So, basically once we put
all those things together and this is what it looks like once you start working on
your WordPress website and you have the Drag
& Drop Editor, right? To make things easier and you added your logo to your website to the top, all you have to do next, okay? Is now it’s time to start the
affiliate marketing portion. Now it’s time to start applying for affiliate programs and again, when you apply for affiliate programs, they’re gonna ask you for a website. Amazon Associates, what’s your website? Commission Junction right
here, what’s your website? ShareASale, what’s your website? And this is a bonus one for you guys. This is actually signing up
for Adobe’s affiliate program. Adobe, the company that creates Photoshop, Adobe Premier Pro, all of
those creative apps, right? And software, they have
an affiliate program. They’re willing to pay you to recommend Adobe to other people. So if you’re a photographer
or a videographer who uses Photoshop or Premier
Pro and that’s something that, that’s a software that
you actually love and use and I only recommend things I love to use, then basically you can sign up for that. You can find the company’s
affiliate program and sign up. Now, they’re gonna ask you for
a website in this application and again guys this is the reason why I made creating a website
one of the first steps is ’cause you’re gonna need it to even do affiliate marketing or apply to be an affiliate marketer and apply for the top affiliate programs period. Now, in step number six you can actually go into programs if you wanna learn more but I include one of just
my most popular videos over 100,000 views in just
a few short months and it’s The Seven Best Affiliate
Programs for Beginners, okay? And if you’re watching this video, chances are you are a beginner and even if you’re not I suggest you watch this video to learn what are my favorite affiliate programs, but you can watch that in your own time, but I’m just gonna skip right into it. The top two that I recommend to people are usually Amazon Associates
and Commission Junction just because these two
marketplaces and affiliate networks have basically all the
largest brands in the world. Again Nike, Adidas, Under Armour, Bose. I believe all of them
are available through one or the other whether
it’s Amazon Associates or Commission Junction you’re gonna find these huge billion,
billion dollar brands on these affiliate programs right? And so what you’re gonna
do is you’re gonna apply and I’ve already shown
you the applications here, and they’re gonna ask
you for some information but the key thing that you
need to includes your website and after you build it up using WordPress and Elementor to make your life easier and look way more attractive than the stock factory theme and template, that’s when it’s time to start applying and people ask me how
many blog posts do I need? And post is something
that is an actual article. So, if I can just show you guys, go back into WordPress and show you guys where the post is versus a page. Again, page is like your
contact us, about us. A post is an actual article. Like let’s say a review
of an affiliate product. So, we go into post you
can add a new post, right? So you add the post
and I’m just gonna call this Bose Headphones Review and we’ll talk about content creation in a little bit and get
deeper into it but I’m gonna do my Elementor canvas
for the page attributes, publish this, wait for that to publish. Edit with Elementor
which I just love doing and you can even just type it in using the WordPress interface if you want to. They both work. So I’m just gonna look up post. So, you can insert this or you can just use the stock theme. Again, a post is more, you need people to be able to read your post, right? It’s more important that people are able to read it rather then
having it look like amazing. Now, I mean this does look
absolutely amazing right here. I mean, it just looks so cool. It looks so clean and professional, but I’m just gonna call
this Bose Headphone Review, and just to make things, QC35 QuietComfort Headphones Review. Boom. And I can click images, I can
include by affiliate links and I’ll actually show
you guys how to do that. But basically yeah, you make a post and it’s something that’s
like an article, okay? And so if we go back here, after you apply for the affiliate programs and you get in and the thing is, the little tip I’m gonna give you guys is chances are you are gonna be automatically approved
by Amazon Associates but the problem is you need to make sure that you actually have
a website up and running because they actually can and will go check to make sure that your website is actually functioning and that you actually are who you say you are, that you actually have
a real business, okay? ‘Cause some people try and get by and apply with using something
like a YouTube channel. Now I think they actually
have requirements where you need at least
500 plus subscribers to joining Amazon Associates. So again, we need to have a legit website to make sure that we don’t get terminated or banned from these programs when they found out you don’t actually have a website up and running or you’re just using a social media profile as your business when it’s not, right? They want a real custom website with a custom URL with an actual
theme, some content on the page. Again, it doesn’t have to be much. I usually recommend one
or two pieces of content. When you’re making a couple reviews, basically you wanna have
your website look lived in. It has an about us, a contact us and then a few blog posts, right? That’s it. It doesn’t need to be crazy but it does need to show that you
are making and effort. So, basically once you get into the affiliate programs right? The next step is to find
an affiliate product and get your affiliate link. So, when you log into the
Amazon Associates program, what it’s gonna look like
is you can actually search up any product that’s available, and just an example right here, this is a little screen shot, you can look up any
product and I looked up for Beats Headphones and you
can see a bunch of products. They actually had 2,423
results (laughs) that popped up but basically find the
headphones that you’re looking for and in this case we have these Beats Solo Three
Wireless On Ear Headphones and all you have to do is click this Get Link right here, okay? And what you’re actually gonna wanna do and this is a tip right here is click this arrow instead of clicking Get Link and you’re gonna have an option to get a shortened link and that’s what this link is right here. This one that has the, just amzn.to and then like a string right here, you can get that shortened
link this dropdown. Some people get confused ’cause they click Get Link and
it has all these crazy, this like widget and
code and this and that but that’s for people if they wanna embed it into their website which
you can do on your website but I like to just get the affiliate link and then just create a
text link on my website. So once I get the affiliate link, basically when you’re making your post, all you have to do is
just kinda type it in and then we have this
text editor right here and when you have your affiliate link it’s really easy and you can
actually include your link. So, if I say click here to
get your headphones, right? And then you turn that into a hyperlink, and then you just copy and past the URL. Simple, right? That’s your affiliate link right there and you can easily just
add that to your website. Amazon.to/ whatever and just
apply that and then boom. There’s the affiliate link. If they click that that’s
where you basically can put tracking cookie on your visitor and you get a commission of anything they buy from Amazon within 24
hours of clicking that link. Now you don’t need to renew this link. Once you get this link it’s
pretty much a done deal, right? The renewal process, when
I’m talking about 24 hours and for other affiliate
programs and companies, it’s actually a longer cookie of 30 days, 60 days and 90 days. Amazon, just because it’s so, it’s the biggest eCommerce
retailer in the world, there’s is 24 hours because they go through so much billions of dollars of revenue that 24 hours is, if they were to do 30 days it
would be just overkill okay? But 24 hours is enough time where it is relevant that if someone does click your link and buy it
means that you really did help them to make that decision. Now, the 24 hour period
is on the user’s end, not your end, okay? You make this link once,
you don’t have to change it. Someone clicks it, the
24 hour process starts and then it ends 24 hours later. If they click it again it starts again and then it ends 24 hours later and that’s how it works
for every single visitor who clicks your link on your website. So this is why it’s passive income. Once you create the content whether it’s an article written or video, which I’m gonna talk about
in step number eight, basically you’re done. The affiliate link doesn’t need to be changed or maintained. It literally, it takes care of itself and if someone clicks it
and makes a sale, right? It’s automatic and you just get that added to your account and it’s
just, it’s maintenance free, it’s passive income once you create it and that’s why we’re
building something today that has the potential to make sales and make money for
months and years to come even after the fact that you’ve finished. You haven’t touched that website or that article or that
video in months, right? And you’re still getting clicks and you’re still getting sales and that’s why I love affiliate marketing. So, let’s move on to step number eight ’cause I know I get a lot of questions about how to create content
for affiliate marketing and again this is free to start. So let me give you guys
the two basic ways. It’s either written or video okay? And I’m a big fan of video as you can tell on my YouTube channel, but at the end of the day you only need to have a written article. You don’t need to create videos. You can create an article just like this, have the same information
that you would’ve made in the video and then basically, this can become something
that gets affiliate links, that gets traffic, that gets
clicks and sales by itself. You do not need a video,
it’s not necessary. Now, I recommend if you’re gonna go do the process of writing
out this whole article, why don’t you translate that into a video and literally just create
something simple, right? It doesn’t need to be crazy. So let me go back here to give you guys some advice on making videos. When you make a video you get the chance to basically have you content seen on not only Google and
not only on your website, but YouTube which is a huge platform and I’ll get into that when
we talk about getting traffic. Creating content. If you just want to write on your WordPress website that’s fine. For video which I do recommend
and it’s something that, you can use any modern smartphone, right? Any modern smartphone, an
iPhone, anything right? They’re gonna have
basically 4K video quality. I’m not even filming this video in 4K. I’m filming in 1080p full HD and the thing is even the cameras in smartphones these days are overkill for what we’re trying to do
because at the end of the day, yes you can make a pretty video but at the end of the
day we’re just trying to have effectiveness and get sales and when it comes down to making sales, it’s not about how pretty your video is although I’m not saying
don’t focus on video quality, but it’s about the
information that’s presented and that’s the reason why
people will buy things from articles if they have
the relevant information that helps me to make a decision. A decision on what headphones to purchase or if this pair of headphones is the right pair of headphones for me. So, again I like to do both. Double dip where you
create a written article, you turn that into a video and now we get traffic
not only on our website through Google but also on YouTube, the platform that has billions of users and views every single day, right? So if you’re new to video editing and basically my advice
is use your smartphone just to film because it already has a great camera chances are, right? If you do want to invest, the camera I’m using right now for this video and the
camera I have recommended here is called a Canon G7X Mark II. It’s my favorite video
camera for beginners. If you look in the background, I have a Sony A7R3 with a G Master lens. That set up right here not to brag, but that setup behind
me is $6,000 with tax and everything included
that you see right there. That camera is overkill, okay? I’m using the G7X. The quality is beautiful. It’s point and shoot and it costs literally a tenth of what that setup costs and I barely even use that
setup which is not often or when I’m taking
pictures because it makes, it takes amazing pictures. But for the most part, 99% of the time I’m just using this Canon
G7X that I’m filming on right now ’cause I love it. It’s so simple and easy to use. It’s point and shoot. You don’t have to fiddle
around with settings and the focal length and this and that. Literally, you turn it on, you
hit record and you’re done. That’s it. So, for editing videos. Now, a lot of computers
come with editing software, but basically I found a free software that you can use on your phone, so if we’re filming on our phone then we should be able to
edit on our phone as well just to streamline the process, but Adobe Premier Rush okay? Completely free. You can get it on iPhone,
on iOS or Android, okay? No matter what phone you’re using you can probably find this
for free, free download. I’m sure they have a premium version but you can use this to
simply edit your video and when it comes to editing
you don’t have to get fancy. All you have to do is cut out the parts that you don’t need and just, just chop things up just to make it a lot smoother and remove and outtakes or any mistakes or mess ups and that’s it, and you don’t have to get
the craziest software. Now, when it does come to video editing, some other software include Adobe Premier, that’s usually for Windows users
but also available for Mac. If you are on Mac like me I
like to use Final Cut pro. Another program I love
using is called Camtasia which is a screen share program. It’s actually the one I’m using right now. So again, I only recommend stuff I use and Camtasia’s a software that is just so easy to do a
screen capture recording, do a voiceover at the
same time, easily edit. You can edit live footage,
you can edit screen capture, you can put the two together
like I’m doing right now. I have the face cam and then I have the screen share on the computer. I’m using Camtasia. That is the secret right there. So, yeah. It doesn’t really matter what software you use as long as it can edit, as long as it can basically
splice clips together and remove the mistakes
and the outtakes, right? That’s it. So, let’s keep movin’ on. Step number nine. Now, this is such a juicy topic which is getting traffic to your content. Everyone always asks me even after we go through those steps, if you don’t get traffic you’re not gonna get any affiliate
sales and you’re not gonna make any money at the
end of the day right? We need traffic to get sales. Now, I’m gonna answer that in this video right now but again, any one of these steps and topics, I can go on for hours and hours and hours and for the sake of
time I wanna streamline this process for you guys and again, we have this free resource right here. I created a video on How To Get Traffic To Tour Affiliate Marketing website. You can watch the whole video. It’s 24 minutes long and basically, I’m gonna give you guys a brief overview of how to get traffic to
your affiliate website and business but you can
watch this full video, 24 minutes if you want
to learn more in depth about how to get traffic
both free and paid. So I’m gonna offer you guys two options. We can either get free traffic or we can get paid or you can get both which is what I usually recommend. Now when it comes to paid traffic you can start just $5 a day, okay? Now, obviously what we wanna do is we want to learn
more about the concepts and build up our skills
before we start spending money because we can easily just lose this money and I don’t really consider spending money on paid traffic and not getting sales, I don’t consider that losing
money, I’m collecting data. I’m learning okay? I’m learning what works and
what doesn’t work, okay? So, basically let’s start
with the free traffic method which I think most of us would
love because hey, it’s free. Who doesn’t love free, right? And lucky for you, free
traffic is actually the best possible traffic you can get. Now, free traffic comes through a process called Search Engine
Optimization also known as SEO. And I’ve talked about SEO
in videos such as this, How To Get Traffic. But basically SEO is when someone types up and they look up your key word on Google. So let’s say again, we
have this headphone review. If somebody looks up Bose QC35 QuietComfort
Headphone review, I’m hoping that this article
pops up on Google, okay? That’s how you can get
free organic traffic is if you rank on Google
what people are searching. Now, same thing applies to YouTube which is the second largest
search engine in the world. If someone types up Bose QC35 QuietComfort
Headphone review, if your video with a
title that is targeted around this key work pops up, that’s called search engine
optimization as well. We are optimizing so that we
show up on the search rankings closer to page one if not
the top five search results because the top five search results are gonna get the most
traffic hands down, right? So, basically search engine optimization is we’re going after a specific key word and in order to do this, what you wanna do is
you wanna do research. You wanna see what people
are actually looking up. And people, they type in certain things like Beats Studio Wireless
Headphone Review, right? And the general content I like
to create is review content ’cause review content is what people look up when they’re thinking
about buying a product, right? When you’re thinking about making a purchase or investing in
like a product or a software, you’re probably looking up reviews or social proof or ratings to see how effective or is this
product worth it, right? That’s the research
process for when people are looking up how to buy anything, right? They look for reviews. They look for, to see what
other people are saying. Is it worth it? Now, when they type in review
you want to pop up so you, basically the keyword you wanna go after is insert the product
name here and add review. Now obviously you can title
your thing anything you want. You can make whatever modification
you want to your article. You don’t have to title it this way, but keep this key work in mind while you’re making the content, okay? Just remember that if
people are looking up this content and this key word, you want to center your
content around that key word, that specific key word. Now, one thing, a mistake that people do, is they try and stuff the key word a million times and try
and game the system. Do not do that on your YouTube
description or your website because you are not
going to show up Google. In fact, they’re gonna penalize you and they might even
black list your website because they see that you’re trying to intentionally game the system. They don’t like that. In affiliate marketing and
with Google specifically, there’s been updates,
algorithm changes where they try and make it more natural and they try and penalize people who are trying to cheat the system. That’s why when it comes
to affiliate marketing, I’m a completely white hat. What I’m showing you, we are not breaking any sort of terms of service. We are not breaking any rules. We are doing things by the book because if you wanna last
long in this business, you have to do things by the book. You can’t be breaking the rules
and try to game the system because it’s gonna catch
up to you negatively in the future and I’ve
seen so many people, their businesses go out
of business over night because of an algorithm change. All of a sudden their website which they basically stuffed
a bunch of key words trying to rank for this specific key word, all of a sudden it’s not even in the top 10 pages anymore
on the search results because they were gaming the system and Google caught on to it
and the flagged that website. So, basically that’s the free way, okay? Is going after a specific
key word in your content. Now the paid way is basically
through Facebook ads, Instagram ads, Google ads, YouTube ads. Those are the top four platforms that have billions of potential customers to promote your business to. Now, there are less
popular ones such as Bing, Pinterest, SnapChat, Reddit,
Quora, Media Buying, Solo Ads. You’ve probably heard
of some of these, right? And the thing is I don’t like to focus too much at least personally,
this is preference, I like to focus on Facebook,
Instagram, Google and YouTube. Why? Because if you have billions of potential quality customers to sell to, if you can’t make it work through any one of those platforms, chances are there’s something else wrong. It’s not the traffic source. It’s your business. It’s your website. It’s your contents, right? That’s what I wanna share with you guys is I like to focus on the big platform. So, when we’re talking
about Google ads, right? Here I have links to all
of these platforms as well if you wanna start
using them and they make it super easy because they want people, guys most of Google’s revenue
comes from advertising. They want people to sign
up and start promoting their business with Google Ads, okay? Facebook, same thing. They make a lot of money through ads and they want you to make it as easy as possible to create an ad. That’s why you see this button right here. They want you to immediately get started and they wanna start collecting your money because that’s what they
make a lot of money from, especially Google okay? So when it comes down to it the process for creating an ad and starting
is actually not that hard and you can see you can actually
even start a new account, creature your first campaign and then you can even call this number which I think is toll free
to get help signing up and even just starting
your process, right? So, paid traffic again, watch
this video to learn more. Gonna be linked on this page, but basically you can
start advertising on Google which includes YouTube or
Facebook which includes Instagram. If you create an ad for Facebook, it actually automatically,
you can add that same ad and mirror it on Instagram as well because Facebook owns Instagram. So, very very convenient. Now, the last step, right? After getting traffic and again, you can do more research
on the website here. You can go into traffic up above. You can watch this video
which I’ve included there for more in depth information. But then the last step
after that is building a customer list with email
marketing, all right? Now, this is something that is optional when you start and I just, I put it here because I believe email
marketing is so important. When we’re creating business, you want to be able to collect your customers emails to have a direct line of access to that customer so that when we’re building a business, it’s about more than just having these affiliate links and getting sales. It’s about creating a customer list, getting people back to your website, returning again and again and again. Getting return visitors
to your website every day, every week, every month. It’s about having an email list, right? And although you’re
starting today from scratch, one day you can have a thousand people on that email list and when you send an email out all of a sudden 1,000 people get your email in their inbox. That’s a real business right there. You have access to your
customers and if you want to talk about profit maximization
with affiliate marketing, you wanna be able to reach those customers who are interested in your
niche again and again and again. That’s the secret if you want to have a sustainable
affiliate marketing business is through branding and building assets such as a website, right? An email marketing list, right? Collecting an audience that you can sell to again and again and again, and as you can see right here you don’t need a personal brand. You’re not gonna find any
pictures of me on this website. You’re not even gonna find my name, and basically you can create a brand that’s separate from you. A lot of people think that you need to get on camera and
start sharing yourself. No. I create a $3,000 a month business through passive income
through Amazon Associates which is arguably the lowest
commission rate, right? I created that with a brand
that was separate from my name and I could sell this to someone else and it would actually have value. If this website was not recordingnow.com and if it was odiproductions.com, then I can’t really set that to someone who’s not ODi Productions. So that’s what I wanna share with you guys is when we’re building a company, it’s separate from your personal brand. Now, that doesn’t mean you can’t use your personal brand or create
a personal brand website. By all means, if you want
to create you first blog and your first WordPress website and it happens to be a personal brand, like odiproductions.com
or whatever your name is, then by all means you can do that as well. All right guys, so that
basically wraps up this guide. I tried to keep the video
as streamlined as possible. Again, if you wanna go into each of these steps and I could
go for hours and hours about basically each of
these individual steps but what I tried to do
is I put my information and knowledge onto the website and again, if you wanna access it any time
you can bookmark this page. You can even get this guide emailed to you and break down the steps day by day to make things even easier and
if you’re still overwhelmed, again you can start with just step one and do things step by step. I wanna show you guys the whole game plan so you guys can get an idea of what the big picture looks like and you can get an idea of what you really need to do to create an affiliate website to really create something
that is a business with tangible assets and
that has a brand, right? Something with a logo. So, that’s just something I
wanted to share with you guys. Again, I made this over
just the course of last week every single day from dusk ’til dawn just working on making this guide for you guys completely free. Again, you don’t even
need to put your email. If you wanna show some love and if you did get value from this then please hit the thumbs up button, comment below, let me know if you wanna see more content just like this and if you guys are on the page it would mean a lot to me if
you left some quick feedback. You can see at the
bottom here or at the top when it says rate us and if you could just give five stars and also just answer what are the
steps that you struggle with. You can choose as many steps as you want. Basically if you, if people
vote for a certain step and I see a lot of feedback here then I can add more information to go deeper into any of these
individual steps which again, I can talk for hours and I can make videos that are literally close to an hour long on some of these steps individually, but I wanna show you guys an
overall step by step game plan and also give you guys a free resource, a free guide that you guys can use and maybe even save a little money if you use some of the affiliate links that are exclusive partner links that are available on this website. So, I just wanna put everything together and again if you wanna see some of the other tools and software I use or if you wanna get more recommendations let me know if you wanna
learn more about camera gear, learn more about recording gear, maybe even just books that I like to read. I can add it to the resources
page at top right here, but that basically wraps up this video. I hope you guys got value from it. This is a work in progress. It’s a completely free guide
but I want to improve it, I want to add more
information on the steps that people are struggling with and I wanna make it a lot easier and if this is something that actually gets you to take action
and for once instead of, I know what it’s like to
just research and read and be on the forums and
spend hours and hours just dreaming about the business, right? And if I didn’t make that shift to actually building and
creating a business of my own, my first one was recordingnow.com, and if I didn’t actually build
something, a brand, right? Something with value and assets and something with content and something that could get customers and get traffic and get sales for months
and years to come, I wouldn’t be in the position I am today and I just love my job being able to create resources and tools
and products for you guys that you can use and the problem is, I do have my paid programs but I want to serve and I wanna
help so many more people. So that’s the reason why last week I just decided I wanna create something that can help the world, right? And I can just give back, right? And that’s why I created this guide and that’s why there’s no email required. Anyone can just access it. Odiproductions.com/start
and you can access all the steps and you don’t even have to use the affiliate links. They can only save you
money if you use them because some of them do
have exclusive discounts and again I only recommend products and services that I personally use in my businesses and yeah. So that’s basically it. So I hope this can help you guys today. Let me know in the comments,
hit the like button. Share this video with someone who, if you think that it can be helpful to them and bookmark the page, bookmark this website so
you have access to it. Again, you can put your email if you wanna get the guide emailed to you so you can reference it in the future but I hope that you guys can get some value from this and most importantly, at the end of the day the question of how to get started
with affiliate marketing, this is my answer through
seven years of experience and trying to streamline
it as much as possible and as economically as possible too. Like, I could’ve showed you guys a method to get started with let’s
say 500 to a thousand dollars but I want you guys to get started for literally $76 today and
low risk, you know what I mean? But high potential, high upside. So, if again, if this video was valuable to you please let me know in the comments, hit the like button because
it really really helps out my channel and it lets me know you want more content just like this, but I hope you guys can take
this and take action, okay? At the end of the day
my job is to help people to start and create business and give back to society, right? And if you watch all my videos and you’ve been following
me for months if not years and you still haven’t taken action then I have personally failed in my job and if my job is to get
people to do something, to take action, to build a business and you haven’t created a business yet, then I’m hoping that this guide can help you make the process less intimidating because I know as a beginner it’s so overwhelming to start
but if we can break things down into bite sized chunks, that’s when we can actually truly create something great today and
remember just build, okay? Build something that has a
brand, build something powerful, build something that can
provide for your future and separate your time for money. So, I hope that these words
can inspire someone today and if they do let me know in the comments and I’ll see you guys in the next video. Peace.
