Teaching a STUDENT How to Start a Business with $100!


– In this video, I’m gonna
teach my friend, Sam here, who is a broke college student how to start an online business
with just $100, stay tuned. What is up, guys? If you’re brand new to the
channel, my name is Odi. I go by ODi Productions. I just broke 36,000 subscribers. I am an entrepreneur and
I make business videos, I do little vlogs and
also tutorials, tips, and just basically
documenting my business, and also helping others and
young aspiring entrepreneurs with starting their businesses. And in this video I am teaching
a broke college student, my friend Sam, how to start
a business with just $100. Yeah, that’s one Benjamin Franklin. But let me give you guys
a little bit about me before we get into the video. Two years ago I dropped out
of UCLA with a three, five GPA in my senior year in order
to pursue entrepreneurship and online business. And just two years later I’m
basically living my dream life. I live here in my apartment
in downtown Chicago, if you guys wanna check it out, it is such a gorgeous,
gorgeous day today in downtown. You can guys can see it’s the
Chicago River right there. But it is a nice day. This is my apartment as
you guys can see here. It’s a really messy so
please don’t mind that. I was able to move in
here about a year ago from San Diego, California. As you guys can see I
got this little art work, that’s a little throwback to my hometown. Basically, I went all
in on entrepreneurship and everything seemed to work out. So my goal in this video
and with my channel is to inspire other young entrepreneurs or people who are just
wanting more from their life and help them get from A to B. So that’s basically what I’m here for. But now what we need to do
is we need to go pick up Sam. We’re gonna go hop in the car,
which is a Porsche 911 Turbo. We’re gonna go pick up Sam right now, and then we’re gonna introduce her and then we’re gonna figure out how to get this business started for just $100. Let’s go. Alright, I’m here in the parking garage, that’s to hop in the whip. There she is. (engine revving) Alright guys, so we are here
in my Porsche 911 Turbo. For anyone who is new to the channel you haven’t seen my car
before, yeah, this is it. It’s a custom 911 Turbo. I did a vehicle wrap, it’s got exhaust, it’s got new HRE wheels on
them, wrapped in some Michelin, pallet super sports. But basically that’s
just car talk for anyone who is into cars. Yeah, picked up this turbo a few months ago in San Francisco. Picked it up off the showroom floor. I actually have a video on my channel if anyone wants to see that. But basically I was able
to modify it, customize it all the way to my liking, and now it is just much perfect,
the way she sits right now. But we are driving over
to go pick up Samantha. Gonna pick her up, gonna get some lunch and then we’re gonna head
back here to my apartment, so that we can start this
business with just $100. Alright guys, stay tuned. Hi Sam.
– Hi. – Alright, you ready to do this? – Yeah. – Alright, let’s go, hop in. Alright, so we are here on the
sky lounge of my apartment. We’re gonna get to know
Sam a little bit better, and I’m gonna explain to her
the different business models and the business model
which we’re going to try to replicate today. Alright, so your name is Sam.
– Yes. You are in college, correct? – Yeah, I’m a junior. – You’re a junior, so you’re
a third year in college. Where do you study? – Loyola University of Chicago. – Okay, cool, and what’s your major? – Right now, I’m business undeclared. – Business, alright, perfect. We’re creating a business today. She studies business, so it all works out. So let the people know,
do you have any experience with online business at all? – No, none. – You’ve never done Amazon FBA
– No. you’ve never done
dropshipping with Shopify, affiliate marketing?
– No. Perfect, alright, so we
are literally talking to a day one beginner who
has no previous experience with online business, no
skills in terms of like you’ve never made a website before? – No. – Okay, perfect. Alright, this is absolutely perfect. So this is just to show you guys that even if you don’t have any
skills you can follow along with this video and we can
really start creating a business for just $100 today. So I’m going to explain
to Sam the business model which we are going to go
after today with the business that we’re gonna start. So this business model is
called affiliate marketing. So Sam, have you ever heard
about affiliate marketing? – No. – Alright, so you know nothing
about affiliate marketing. Well, luckily I’m the affiliate
marketing expert, and mentor so I can teach you what
affiliate marketing is right now. So basically the way that
affiliate marketing works is it’s just referrals. So with a lot of companies such as Amazon, they have their own affiliate program called Amazon Associates,
which is the largest affiliate program on the planet. If you’ve watched any YouTube
videos or tech reviews where they have Amazon
links in the description, usually those are Amazon Associates links. And what happens is every
time you click those links, if you order anything within 24 hours, the person whose link you clicked actually receives a percentage
of the products price as their commission. And the commission varies
based on product categories, which we’ll look into once
we get on the computer. But basically we are going to create an affiliate marketing
business and we are going to refer products on Amazon
in order to get clicks and ultimately get a commission. So the reason why we’re going
with affiliate marketing is because of some really big benefits, especially for beginners
and broke college students who don’t have a lot of
investment to put up front, but instead are looking for
something that’s a little bit more low risk, but the same time has a really high earning potential which I’ll explain to
you later in this video. But one of the biggest
benefits of affiliate marketing is you don’t actually have
your own products or services, you’re only referring
people through links. So it’s all digital and it
doesn’t cost you anything to promote these products,
because you don’t actually have to own or have the products in hand, unlike Amazon FBA or
dropshipping where you actually have to pay for the products. With affiliate marketing
you’re simply referring people to the advertiser, and if
they order those products through the company, then
you get that commission, completely 100% passive income. So really like what you
need to do is create like a content, like a piece of content like a video, or a blog post or a review and you put your affiliate
links in that piece of content. And if anyone clicks and
purchases through that, then you will receive
commission basically for months if not years to come. So that sounds pretty good, right? Passive income, low risk. I mean, what’s not to love
about affiliate marketing? Alright guys, so we’re
about to begin working on our business. Now the first step of creating
any affiliate marketing business is to choose a niche or industry. So right now I’m gonna ask
Sam a series of questions to see if we can figure
out the right niche for her so that we can pursue this business, and that not only will it be profitable, but it’ll also be fun for her. So let’s start with the first question. Sam, what are some of your passions? What are you passionate about in life? (Sam laughs) Sorry I put you on the spot here, but … – Is it weird if I say dogs? – No, wait, that’s really good. First of all, we could do
a whole website on that. I mean who doesn’t love dogs, right? Let’s see, dogs, you got any other ones? – Music. – Music, okay, music is good. Music too as well. Dogs is probably a little
better for affiliate marketing but let’s, you got any more? – Um, nice makeup. – Makeup, so makeup is
actually a really big market and honestly, makeup is pretty favorable because they have high
commission rates on Amazon which I’ll show you when
we get into the computer. Now I’ve looked at makeup before, not for me personally. But like, I’ve look at the industry and it’s a booming industry. I mean there are people who make millions just off of YouTube makeup tutorials. And the thing is, I personally, obviously I can’t get into it ’cause I personally don’t wear makeup. But perfect for you,
you’re passionate about it and this is something
which you can pursue, that this is something that we should definitely capitalize on. So guys choosing a niche
that you’re passionate about is really important. Now there’s two schools
of thought on this. Some people say forget your passion, choose something that makes money. But honestly, when you’re
just getting started, let’s say this is your first business. And you don’t have a
lot of money to invest and also like, you don’t
really have all the skills yet, it’s important to choose
something you’re passionate about to begin with, because
you can gain those skills and stay dedicated and keep working on it instead of getting bored. And then once you have
those skills you can move on to more profitable niches in the future. But lucky for Sam here, makeup is actually a really profitable niche to begin with. So we could hit a home
run on this first try, so yeah, that’s pretty good. Alright, this second part
we are about to actually start creating the business,
creating the brand. So we’re gonna hop back into my apartment and get on the computer
so we can show you guys step-by-step, click by
click, how we get this done. Alright, so we hopped
back in my apartment. We are about to hop on
the computer right there. I am gonna let Sam actually
take the driver’s seat and she’s actually going to do
all this while I direct her. I’m gonna basically be over her shoulder, so just take a seat Sam. There we go, perfect. So as you guys can see
she is on the computer, we’ve got the WebCam going too, so we can get a few different angles. I’m gonna set this camera down right here, and then you guys can see this. Alright Sam, so the first
step that we’re gonna do is we need to come up with a website name. And your website name,
this is called a domain. And what we’re gonna do
with that website name is create a website known
as an authority website. So it’s a niche authority website, I’ve created some of them. My first niche authority
website is actually right here, it is recordingnow.com, so maybe if you go to recordingnow.com real quick so we can show the people an example of what a niche authority website is and what we’re trying to
do with Sam’s brand here. So as you guys can see, lemme
just take over real quick. This is my first affiliate website. It’s basically a niche authority website in home recording niche. As you guys can see here,
I do reviews of headphones and if you guys have
seen my YouTube channel, I have a lot of headphone reviews. Some of them have 100,000,
200,000, over 300,000 views. So if I just look at
one of them right now, let’s just go with the M50X which is a very popular headphone. As you guys can see here,
you got my video review right here at the top and
then you got the review as well as the YouTube review, including this Amazon link
which I discussed earlier. So basically this is
what we’re trying to do except we’re gonna try
and do the same thing but with makeup. So with your website
we’re gonna create a brand because brands are very powerful, and honestly some of the most
successful affiliate websites are brands/personal blogs. We’re gonna make it official. We’re gonna actually make
it look like a real company despite you just being a broke
college student or whatever. Once we get that brand
name, we get a logo done, create a full legit website, then it can be very powerful. So let’s start by doing that. Let’s start by coming up with
a name, just brainstorming. One important thing that I
like to do when coming up with a brand, is also looking up to see if the website domain is available, because that’s really
important for SEO purposes which is search engine optimization. It’s important to come
up with a good brand name and to get that .com because
it will help you rank up higher and just have more credibility online. So the first step that
we’re gonna do when creating this website and also
coming up with a name is I want you to go to bluehost.com. Bluehost is the number one
WordPress recommended web host and on Bluehost basically
you can look up domains. So you can purchase website
names but you can also purchase something called web hosting. Now web hosting is what allows people to have websites online. And web hosting is like
actually really inexpensive. It only starts at around I
think $2.95 to $4.95 per month. And basically through web hosting is where we get to host our website. So at the price of just 4.95 per month, that’s less than five bucks a month. We went to Starbucks today
where we probably spent like almost close to that. So basically you can have a
website for the price of coffee every single month. So anyways, let’s just go
on to Bluehost right here. We’re gonna look at hosting. We’re just gonna go look at shared hosting and when we get on this page, it allows us to choose a plan. So as you guys can see, it starts at 2.95. If you guys wanna follow along,
the website is going to be in the description where you can actually get exclusive discounts to Bluehost. But we’re actually gonna just
start with the basic plan here ’cause you’re
broke, you’re on budget, you only have $100, right? So let’s start with that 2.95 plan, it’s less than three bucks a month. I mean that’s really nothing in terms of investing in a business. So we’re gonna choose a basic plan. And so I’m gonna let you
choose the basic plan, I’ll let you take control. So we’re gonna choose
basic and here’s where we actually get to come
up with the website name which is the domain. So we’re gonna choose a new domain, and we’re just gonna brainstorm right now and we’re gonna think
different names for Sam’s brand and her website, and then
we’ll see if it’s available. If it is we’ll go ahead
and purchase the domain along with the web hosting. Alright, so we did some brainstorming and we came up with the website/brand name of Samsmakeupreview.com. Very simple but it contains
the words makeup review which is actually really
good for SEO purposes because our goal is to get
as many hits as possible, to get as much traffic as possible. So ranking on the first page
of Google is going to be our end goal with any sort of website, any sort of piece of
content that we create. So let’s just add in the domain name, Sam’s Makeup Review. You can just type in to
the new domain right there. It’s perfect, and then just click next. Alright, so the checkout process, you’re just gonna fill out
your account information. But let’s scroll down here
to the package information because this is where you
actually decide what services you want to add on, or what
services you don’t want including the length of the term. Obviously we only have $100 to work with. So far we haven’t spent any of it, but we don’t want to
blow our entire budget on just buying the web hosting,
’cause there’s a couple of other things we want to buy. But with that said, let’s look
at this package information. You can see at the top
here it says account plan, 36 months for 2.95 month. So the way it works is
if you actually hit this, basically the price goes up
the shorter of a term you do. And unfortunately, to get
that low price of 2.95, you actually have to sign
up for at least three years. But we can’t afford that
because we’ll be over budget, so we’re actually gonna do just 12 months. And as you guys can see,
it’s drops down drastically to just $59.40, and that’s including some of these services right here. Well, that’s in the total. So we just want the hosting,
and I also recommend if you’re gonna choose
one of these services to do the domain privacy protection. So if we take off these extra services and we just do the basic
hosting for 12 months, so basically you’re getting
a whole year of your domain, your web hosting. So you’re getting a website for a year. That’s basically what’s happening here. You’re getting a whole website for a year for about $59.40. I recommended that you add
the domain privacy protection because this basically protects
your who is information so that when you sign up for a domain, and someone looks up that domain, they can’t see your actual
name, address, or whatever because that’s actually required by law to include your contact information when you create a domain. So we’re gonna do the
domain privacy protection ’cause we don’t want people
to see that snooping around. But other than that,
that’s the only service that we really need, other
than the web hosting. So as you can see, our
total comes to $71.28 which is an awesome deal. I mean we’re gonna have a
website for a whole year for about 70 bucks. So that’s perfect, we’re
gonna fill out the rest of this checkout information,
and then we are going to sign up with Bluehost,
log in and start creating that website, alright, let’s go. Alright, so after signing
up with our web hosting, we’re gonna create our website. But before we do any of that, one thing that I absolutely
do with every single one of the affiliate marketing
businesses that I start is I always create a professional logo. Having a logo, it does so
much for brand credibility. When you have a logo,
whether it’s on your website, on your YouTube Channel, or
whatever social media you use, it really tells people and shows people sort of this professional
image and you want to have that at all times, because if we’re
gonna be selling stuff online we want to build credibility and trust. These are like two of the most
important qualities to have when you are selling any
sort of products online, is you want people to trust you. Because they won’t buy from
you if they don’t trust you. And that is the cornerstone of any sort of affiliate marketing
business is you have to be trustworthy or else, if people, if they think you’re scamming them, if they don’t think you’re legit, then they’re not gonna purchase from you. So what we’re gonna do is
I’m actually gonna refer Sam to my logo maker who is on Fiverr. If you guys have never heard of Fiverr, why don’t you, mind visiting
Fiverr on the computer, which is F-I-V-E-R-R.com. Perfect. So this is Fiverr. Fiverr is one of my
favorite websites online, because it’s basically
a freelance marketplace where you can get people
to do graphic design, people to create logos for you, to do stuff like video
editing, audio editing, and all sorts of other
things as you can see on this homepage. And all the services
start at just five bucks, so that’s perfect for us,
broke college students. Not much budget, we’ve already spent $71 on web hosting and a domain for you. A $5 logo sounds pretty
good right about now. So what we’re gonna to
do is we’re going to look for a logo maker. So you can just type
into the search bar logo. There we go, logo design, let’s try that. And then we’ll just see what we got here. Alright, so we looked up logo design and as you guys can see here, if we scroll down, actually
you can see some of these are starting at quite a bit more than $5, but I’m pretty sure
that if we keep looking, we’ll be able to find something a little bit more inexpensive. Okay, 2400, jeez. – There’s a five. – Perfect. Alright, so we actually
found a legit $5 job listing for logo design, so we’re
gonna click this right there. So as you guys can see
here, pretty good reviews. 844 five-star reviews. You can also if you want,
you can actually check out the different logos. So if you wanna click on these. You can actually see some of the logos which they made in the past. And if you guys look at these, I mean they’re pretty legit company logos. So five bucks, I mean
it’s not gonna get much better than this, unless
you are a graphic designer. But neither of us are, so
we’re gonna just hire someone else to do it, we’re gonna
outsource it for five bucks, so that we can create
our logo for our website and our brand. We’re gonna sign up, we’re gonna ask them to create our logo, and
then we’ll get that logo within a day, which we can start putting all of our branded materials
such as our website, whether we create a YouTube
channel or whatever. We’re just gonna place this order. It’s gonna be delivered in three days, little bit longer, but again, five bucks, there is not much to complain about. So after you submit the payment, it’s gonna ask you some
questions about your logo, how do you want it made,
what colors you wanna use. So for me, I prefer to
make badges type logos. Badge type logos are like recording now which I should get right here, just to show you guys one more time. So with this, Sam you can
look at the other side of the headphones while
I show the audience. So this is a badge type logo. So as you guys can see, it has outlines. Basically one of the benefits
of having a badge type logo is you can actually place
this on any sort of website or social media or whatever,
and it doesn’t really, it will always stick out because
it has different contrast between the borders and the outlines. So this a badge right here,
and I personally love it. It also includes some meters right here because it’s recording. They take the freedom
of designing your thing based on your industry. So luckily for us, we
chose beauty and makeup and fashion or whatever. And that will allow to
give it sort of that flair that is (mumbles) the
makeup or beauty brands in the industry. So for you, what kind of
colors are you thinking about to have for your logo and for
your general websites theme that you think would be nice
for you and your audience? – Color red. – Red. – Is that too intense? – It is intense but I mean, let’s do it. Red and white, let’s go
with red and white, yeah. That will be good. Red is lipstick, you know what I mean? – Yeah. So that’s pretty cool,
red and white, perfect. So scroll down. So we will check the box there and we will start order, and voila. Order is started, we will receive that in just three days. So we’ll wait for that and
this is what we’re gonna use for all of our website stuff but yeah. That’s how easy it is to
order a professional logo and it literally costs us a total of $6. So you can’t beat that,
we’re up to a total of about $77 now that we’ve invested. But now we are about to create
a full professional website. We have a professional logo,
we have a custom domain name so we’re really getting
ahead of the game right here. So yeah, let’s move onto the next step which is creating the full website. Alright guys, so we just ordered our logo but we are back on Bluehost. We signed up with Bluehost earlier. So after you guys sign up with Bluehost, you’re gonna be hit with this screen. It’s gonna say welcome to
Bluehost, congratulations. It’s gonna ask you to create
a password so just click that and we’re gonna make a
password for your account so we can start making the website. So just do any password you
want, I’ll let you type that. Alright, so we just signed up for Bluehost and immediately after you
guys complete the sign up and you log in and you create a password, it’s gonna take you to this page which is the Bluehost portal. So one thing that Bluehost started to do that web host did not offer
before is they actually, immediately installed
WordPress onto your web host. So WordPress was actually the platform that we’re gonna use
to create our website. Now before you used to
have to actually manually install it yourself,
doing WordPress install and then having to create some credentials and then plugging those in. But one cool thing is, Bluehost
actually made the process a lot easier, so if you sign up with them, it immediately installs
WordPress like instantly after you sign up. So it’s a lot easier and
one thing that’s really cool is it starts off with you can
actually choose your theme. So let’s scroll through
these and pick a theme that you think would match your brand and makeup, fashion, beauty, whatever. Pick a theme that kind of reflects that or one that you like. You can always change
your theme in the future, so don’t worry about picking
the right theme just yet. Just pick something you like
and you can always customize it and then choose a different
theme if you don’t like it down the line. – That ocean. – Yeah, for sure. Alright, so just click use this theme and as you can see Bluehost is setting WordPress up automatically. We literally signed up minutes ago and we’re already installing
and creating our website. Perfect, alright. So now that Bluehost has
finished setting up WordPress, just click start building and we will hop right into our WordPress dashboard. Alright, awesome, so this is WordPress. This is basically the
platform that we’ll be used to create our website. So one cool thing about
WordPress is that you don’t have to do any coding, and it’s
basically just a bunch of, it’s drag and drop and it’s known as a what you see is what you get editor so you can literally just create websites without having to touch a line of code. One cool thing is
WordPress actually runs 26% of the internet right now. So 26% of the websites
that are being visited are actually run on
the WordPress platform. So these include websites
like (audio distorts), Beyonce’s blog, a bunch of other blogs, the Star War’s blog. I mean like big brands
are using WordPress. And that’s more than you
can say for other simple web editors such as (mumbles)
and none of them boast 26% of the entire internet. So I love WordPress, it’s
got so much functionality for beginners and for advanced
people and businesses alike. But basically we’re in the dashboard so welcome to WordPress. What we’re gonna do is
we’re actually going to, I’m gonna guide you to
this so we don’t have to, you can just click I don’t need help. And so basically, the first
thing that we wanna do is we’ve already chosen our theme but if you do wanna change your theme, you can go to appearance
which is on the left hand side bar right here. You can go to appearance and then themes and yeah, you can click that. And so when you look at themes, you can actually scroll through. Let’s go back up and then
click on WordPress.org themes. So from here, you guys can
see maybe, click popular. So you can see we got over
2000 themes if you want to scroll down and just
start looking at them. We have over 2000 themes
that you can choose from now. Most of these are completely
free to start using. However, many of them
follow a premium model so some of them may cost
anywhere from $40 to $50 to get the full version which
you can customize fully. But as you guys can see,
there’s literally hundreds if not thousands of themes
that you can choose from. I mean it’s very easy to
find something to fit you and your theme, your brand. And the thing is, before, like you say, five, 10 years ago, if
you would have websites that look like this, it
would literally cost you thousands of dollars but
we were able to create our website for just 70
bucks for an entire year. So pretty awesome, if you
want to change your theme. But we’re gonna just stick
with this one for now, and then we’re just gonna
start actually creating content so that we can start promoting products and start getting those
affiliate sales and commission. So the first thing you wanna
do is we are going to create our first post, so you
can just go to posts on left hand side bar and
actually just click add new. So we create a new post,
this is like a blog post. You have your title, you
have the body right here and you can even add an
image if you scroll down a little bit. On the right hand side, you
can add a featured image. But let’s scroll back up. Let’s create a title for this. We are going to create a review for one one of your makeup products, and then after we create the review, we can include the Amazon link, so that we can earn that commission if anyone purchases from your website. Aright, so we hopped out
of the computer real quick so we can just look at
some of the products which we are going to be
promoting on the website. So Sam has actually
brought a lot of her makeup from her dorm, and we are
just looking through it as you guys can see. We got this brand Nyx here, but we’re gonna just look
through these makeup products to see which ones are actually
offered on Amazon Associates. And then we can actually do
reviews and create content around those products and
then earn those commissions. So sound good? Alright, so we’ve chosen
three products right here which Sam really likes to use. What is this? It’s a brush. – Yes, it’s a Kabuki brush. – It’s a Kabuki brush,
it’s like Japanese, right? – I don’t know (laughs) – Okay, and we got,
this is eyeliner, right? – Yes. – Okay, we got eyeliner and we have, what is this right here? – That’s finishing powder. – Okay, so we got this finishing powder. So we got the Kabuki brush, that finishing powder and eyeliner. So what we’re gonna do
right now is we’re gonna go in Amazon Associates to see
if any of these are available and if they are, we can
actually get the links and promote them in our review. Alright, hop in back in the computer and we are going to look
at Amazon Associates. I’ll explain what it is and
also we will look to see if these products are available to promote on Amazon Associates. Alright, perfect, so
now we are going to look at Amazon Associates, which
is Amazon’s affiliate program and it’s actually the largest
affiliate program in the world because Amazon is one of the
largest companies in the world. So I want you to just search
up Amazon Associates on Google. So guys, for anyone who is not familiar, again, this is Amazon Associates. It says earn up to 10% advertising fees with a trusted e-commerce leader. This is the affiliate
program that we’re gonna use to look for these products,
and if they’re available, we are going to get links from here and then you can promote
those on your website which in turn, if anyone
clicks and purchases anything within 24 hours, you will actually receive
commission based on the category. So if you want to know what
kind of commissions you earn, you can actually open
up a new tab right now and then let’s look up
Amazon Associates rates. Right there, perfect. So right here, we have a table. You guys can actually look at this. If you wanna pause this or something, you can see all of the
different product categories for products on Amazon including the fixed standard program fee rates. This just means your commission. So as you guys can see, for me, I review stuff like headphones, I would receive 6% commission. Now we’re doing makeup. And the makeup we’re looking
at is actually going to be categorized under luxury
beauty for the most part. And luckily for Sam here, the commission is actually the highest of
any of the product categories. It’s actually 10%. So that’s awesome, because
as you guys can see, it can be as low as zero to
1%, 2% for TVs and stuff. Those are high ticket
items so it makes sense but luckily we had the highest commission, 10% all across the board. So that’s really helpful for us in terms of maximizing our profit. Anyways, let’s go back to this
tab for Amazon Associates. If you haven’t signed
up, you should sign up with Amazon Associates. It’s completely free to join. However, just know that you may be denied if you do not have an actual
platform such as a website, or a YouTube Channel. Luckily for us, we just created a website. We have a legit website
with a custom domain name, and a logo, all this costed
us less than 80 bucks. So that right there is enough to get into the Amazon Associates program. So sign up for that and
then we’re gonna hop in and we’re gonna look for these products to see if we can promote them. Alright guys, so we have
hopped into Amazon Associates. So after you get into the program, you can immediately start
searching out products. So what we’re gonna try and
do is search up these products by going to product
linking and product links. So right here you can type in any keyword, it could be a brand, it
could be the actual model of the products. So we’re gonna start
searching for these products to see if they’re available. And if they are, we could
start getting those links and promoting them on our website. So what do we got up first? – The Nyx HD Studio finishing powder. – Alright, let’s try typing that in. The brand is called Nyx and
it is the finishing powder. So you can just do Nyx finishing powder and we’ll see what pops up. Hopefully, it’s available. Alright, scroll down, let’s see. So we got a few, few items here. Actually quite a few results. Do any of these look like that product? – Yeah, the first one. – First one, perfect, that was easy. Alright, cool. So as you guys can see,
this product is 9.99. So it’s not the most
expensive product obviously but a 10% commission rate. So for each of these you
would actually earn close to a dollar. And that may not seem
like a lot to some people. But everything adds up
especially with makeup because you can bundle
other items together to increase that overall cart ordered. And if you’re getting 10% of all of it, then if you add a few things in there then one dollar could turn to two or three or four or five dollars real quick. If you want to get the link that has your tracking code in it, all you need to do is go right here, but instead of clicking get link, click this little arrow that points down. And it’s gonna have your text link but you want to click
shorten URL with Amazon.to and you’re gonna get
a much shortened link. Now these links, they are
a lot more attractive, and it’s a lot more attractive for people who are gonna
be clicking your links to have something short like this that’s not so conspicuous, you know what I mean? So we’re gonna just copy this, so just click that and then
we’re just gonna copy that to our clipboard. Let’s hop back into our
WordPress account back here. So new post. What you can do is for
now you can just paste in that link into the text, perfect. One thing we want to do
is maybe highlight that and then hyperlink it right there by clicking that.
– This? Mm-hmm, boom, and then you can
just click that blue arrow. Nice, so we have just
added our affiliate link to our new post. So this post is gonna be a review. We’re gonna review that product. So for the title, you can
just do the actual name of the product, and then just add review. But make sure that you
include like the full names, so like the brand, the name of
the item, anything specific. Just so anyone who’s searching it up can really find it on Google. There we go, yeah. And then just add at the end, review. Perfect, so our title, very simple. You have the product name, and then you just include review. But that’s what people
are gonna be searching up on Google, so you want to
basically match that keyword or that search term as close as possible. So basically we got the
tile, let’s scroll down. And basically here in
the text body editor, this is where you can
actually include your review. Now my advice when you’re
creating these articles or making these reviews
is you want to include as many characters, as
many words as possible because the longer your content is, the higher it tends to rank on Google. My guess is because
engagement tends to be higher. Because if you’re a, if
there’s a 2000 word article or a review, and you have
to read the whole thing, it’s gonna take you longer
than reading a 200-word review. So we’re gonna get to
work, brainstorm on this, on how we can write this review. Now here’s a little hack
for some of you guys. If you’re lazy, if you
don’t wanna do this, you can actually hop back on Fiverr which we have still open up right here. So let’s go back to
Fiverr and then you can go up to find services and you can actually
get people to just write these articles for you. Actually, we can just go
to writing and translation. And if you guys look right
here, you got everything from creative writing,
articles and blog posts. So basically, you could hire
someone else technically, to write this for you,
if you’re that lazy. And if you wanna spend five bucks, five, 10 bucks or whatever it costs, then we still have the budget for that. But we’re just gonna
write ourselves because we want it to be genuine. So we’re just gonna brainstorm,
we’re just gonna draft it up we’re gonna write it. Let’s go back to WordPress, and we’re just gonna include it in here. So yeah, we’re gonna do that
real quick and then come back. Alright guys, so we
just finished writing up the review article, as
you guys can see here. So I’m just gonna give you guys some tips when you’re writing these reviews or creating this content,
on how you can not only maximize your profits, but
also increase your clicks, increase hopefully your conversions for your affiliate sales. So as you guys can see here
we have quite a few links. We have the Amazon
Associates links which we got and basically we linked
the product at the top. But one thing that we made
sure to do is we linked the product throughout
the article as well. So we have at the top, we
have it here at the bottom as a call to action, and we also have it when we mentioned Amazon,
we actually included the amazon link which
links to that product. So one thing that we
did, which is something that you guys should do
regardless of your industry is basically you wanna try
and bundle products together as much as possible. So with Sam here, she
had this finishing powder but she also had this brush which you use in conjunction with the powder. So this brush, we actually
looked it up on Amazon. It’s an Elf Kabuki brush,
and we found it for 5.99. So she made sure to
mention how she applies the finishing powder
using the Kabuki brush, and we made sure to link that as well, as you guys can see
here, Elf Kabuki brush. But basically, if it’s 10%
commission and one product is 9.99 and then the Elf
Kabuki brush is 5.99, you’re basically increasing your profits if people order both
products versus just one, you’re increasing your profits
by basically 60% almost. So as you guys can see here,
bundling is such a powerful and effective tool, but the thing is, most people buy stuff in
bundles to begin with. So don’t feel guilty or anything like that including a lot of products
that may work well together, because if anything that’s
how customers usually shop. And Amazon knows this. Every time you shop on
Amazon they always have stuff that’s like best when
purchased together or bundles or stuff like that. So basically just copy
what Amazon is recommending or if you think of any products
that would go good together with your product and
just bundle them together to increase those profits. So that’s basically it. When you’re done, all
you have to do is click this blue publish button. Hit that right there and then your article will be published and we
can see what that looks like on the website. So after you publish it,
just click view post. And we can see the first article
as you guys can see here. Boom, made that in just a few minutes. Obviously there’s no pictures. Pictures would really spice things up if you guys want to include that. But basically that’s how
simple it is to start reviewing products, adding in
those Amazon affiliate links and potentially start to earn money once you start getting
traffic to your website and people clicking your links
and purchasing your products. So that’s the basic process right there. It’s very simple, but you can
get a lot more complicated with it, you can get a lot more complex and more advanced and really
kind of flesh things out if you have more time. Alright, so right now we
are just taking pictures of those products which we’re reviewing to make our article look a lot cooler. So we are just using a basic iPhone as you guys can see right here. Just taking some basic
pictures, how does that look? Alright, not bad. (laughs) Alright, just take a few more. I’ll take one of you using the product, how does that sound? So here, take the brush and then like just pretend you’re like using it. And just smile or something. Done, okay, cool. We got, I’ll just show
you guys what I got. Cool, perfect, we’re gonna
throw this on the website, and yeah, let’s go. Alright, so we actually took the liberty to take a couple of
pictures using the iPhone. Real simple, but honestly pictures make such a huge difference
when making these sort of review articles and content. So basically, we’re
just gonna add those in. So let’s start with adding in
our first image at the top, so we can just make a little break maybe before this whole thing. So let’s go right then and just enter. – Here? – Yeah, hit enter, and
then let’s go up top and then let’s add some media. Yeah, basically, yeah,
we got our images in. Yeah, the lasting thing to do
is to add a featured image, which is your thumbnail. So right here on that right-hand side, just click set featured image. And you can choose any of those. Maybe we’ll just do the product image. That might be a simple one to do. Yeah, that should work pretty well. And then let’s set that
as a featured image. Boom, check it out, right there. And then you can scroll
up and then click update. So now let’s see what
our article looks like with all the brand-new images placed in to see if it looks any better
than just with the text. Alright, so check it out guys. Article looks a lot more lively, it looks a lot more professional now that we have the images in. One trick that you guys can do, this will increase your clicks
and hopefully your sales is, let’s just go back real quick. And what I want you to do is I want you to copy this Amazon link. Perfect, click this image
and we’re gonna edit it by clicking the pencil. What we’re gonna do is we’re
actually gonna link this. And we’re gonna link to, custom URL, make that your Amazon link. Just copy and paste that, and then update. So you’re gonna do this
for all of your images. We’re not gonna do right
now, but we’re gonna do for all the images. Make sure you click update,
just save the progress but let’s actually go
back to the view post and if we scroll down to that image and you hover over, you can
see it has the Amazon link. If you click it, so try
clicking that real quick. Boom, takes you right to the product. So that right there is
a nice little ninja tip that you guys can use
to increase your clicks and hopefully get more sales,
because at the end of the day, you’re trying to get
your customers to Amazon. Because once they’re there,
Amazon does all the selling. And you earn commission
on anything they buy. It doesn’t have to be
this product specifically. It could literally be anything else and you would receive the commission. So the goal is to get them on
Amazon by any means necessary, as long as it’s ethical and
it’s relevant to your product. So yeah, let’s back to our website. Well, okay, let’s just go back. But yeah, so as you guys can see here. I mean this pretty much concludes what we’re doing for
today which is we create a custom website, we had
a professional logo made which we will include once we receive it, and we created our first review article, which includes a bunch
of Amazon affiliate links that hopefully in turn
will result in sales. So that pretty much wraps up this video. I mean it was a pretty simple
straightforward process. But we’ve done a lot today guys, we’ve really created a foundation for something that could be a
legit business in the future. So basically, that wraps
up the website portion. Hope you guys enjoyed that. We’re going to conclude
this video by hopping out of the computer and then
just talking on some options that you guys can do after
you set up the website and get things going. Alright guys, we have just
finished with creating the website, creating the
brand, doing the review post and posting the affiliate links. So that basically is a very,
very, very basic foundation for what an affiliate website looks like. But these are the same
websites which do turn into full on affiliate businesses. But we were basically
able to get that done and I mean Sam here is
a complete beginner, and we only spent about $77 today. So we actually didn’t even
use our whole entire budget which is really good. But basically I hope you
guys enjoyed that video. If you guys enjoyed it
and if you guys want me to make this a series, if
you wanna see more videos and watch us expand
this business even more, then make sure to thumbs up
the video and leave a comment below letting me know. And then if we get enough
traction, we get enough people who are liking the videos, commenting, then we for sure will make
a part two, part three and keep the series going. And you guys can maybe watch a
full business bloom from this but anyways, that wraps up this video. Hope you guys enjoyed it. Give a big thumbs up to
Sam for being a trooper throughout all this. I did not pay her a
single penny to do this. Did I pay you anything?
– No. Okay, didn’t pay her anything. She just did this for fun and I’m really thankful that
she wanted to come onboard to do this project. So hope you guys enjoyed it. Catch you guys on the next one, peace. Hey, so one last thing guys. I just got done editing the entire video. It took me a few hours
and I’m really happy with the results, so I really hope that you guys enjoyed that. But one last thing I wanna
show you guys is actually, a couple of days after
we got done filming, we actually received the
finished logo right here which you guys can check out. Look how awesome that turned
out for just $5, guys. $6 with the $1 fee but I
mean Sam’s Makeup Review. We got the little icons right there. I mean this is really awesome, something that you can
throw onto the website, you can throw on any
sort of like social media or anything like that. So really happy with the result of that. I wanna leave you guys
with one last thing. So if you guys are still
watching this video, then it’s pretty obvious
that you’re really interested in business, in entrepreneurship, and possibly in affiliate marketing. So if you guys haven’t
seen any of my other videos I definitely suggest you
guys go check those out. I have videos where I share
how I’ve made over $45,000 with a 96% profit margin
using affiliate marketing. So I have that video on my channel if you guys wanna look at it. I’m gonna link it somewhere
here on this screen so definitely watch my other videos because in those videos, I
actually go really in depth and I go in deep with affiliate marketing, more so than in this video, which is more of a primer for beginners. So if you’re really
interested in this stuff, then definitely check out
that other, those other videos because some of the numbers,
they are pretty crazy. Now this video, it’s for beginners. It was basically a primer on
how you can start a business with very low investment upfront
using affiliate marketing so you can promote products and services of other businesses. Now, I myself I’m an affiliate
marketing expert and mentor and for anyone who is serious about this, and you really want to
use affiliate marketing as your vehicle to wealth, then you definitely have
to check out my course and mentorship program which has been out for about a month now and
it’s just been so great. I have been really connecting
with all my students, and if you’re interested
in learning about that, let me just give you guys
a quick quick run through on the lessons I teach and what’s included with this program. Alright guys, so here’s
affiliatemarketingchamp.com. Make sure to click the
link in the description if you want to visit this. So this is basically my
video course on everything that you need to get started and succeed with affiliate marketing. So this includes mentorship from me, which means 24/7 direct
messaging assistance. So you can message me anytime of the day and I will answer any and
all of affiliate marketing questions that you have. But let me just give you
guys a quick run through of some the lessons I go through. So in this video, I explain
what affiliate marketing is. But I actually show a
step-by-step plan on how to start a successful affiliate marketing business. So this is actually my
proven step-by-step plan that I’ve used for every single one of my affiliate marketing businesses that have generated well
over $1000 a day profit for well over a year now. So I give the exact step-by-step for how I do affiliate
marketing and it is really in my opinion a proprietary and
unique and innovative method that isn’t really taught
by any other courses or instructors out there. And that’s based on my
students who have taken other courses, they’ve
told me that directly. So let’s just go back in to lesson plans. I actually share with you
the most profitable niches in affiliate marketing, which
is a complete game changer. So I explained earlier in this video, when Sam was using makeup, how makeup is actually a very profitable niche because it has high commission rates, there is a lot of money in it. Now, choosing your niche
is literally the difference between making $1000 a
month and $10,000 a month, and I’m not exaggerating that guys. Choosing your niche is extremely important and you want to choose a niche
where there’s a lot of money to be made. Next, I teach you how to
rank on the first page of YouTube and Google. So this right here, my
students have told me that this is worth the
price of the course alone. Because if you know how
to rank your content and you can get that
massive organic traffic for months if not years to come, 50x which is one of the most
popular headphones out there by Audio-Technica, if you
just scroll down here, you guys will see my
video, ODi Productions is on the first page of Google, right? And I’m actually ranking,
I’m outranking websites Like Guitar Center,
BestBuy.com, BHphotovideo.com. Now that’s insane, because
my YouTube channel, although it’s pretty decent,
it doesn’t have hundreds of thousands, it doesn’t
have millions of subscribers. So you must be wondering,
how am I able to rank on the first page of Google, as some of the top results on YouTube? Well, it’s because I am an expert in SEO and (mumbles) optimization
which has allowed me to do this. So that is included in the
course, and my students have literally said that that is worth the price of the course alone. There is actually a video
review you guys can watch where one of my student says that he would have paid the entire price of the course just for that 23-minute video. So let’s (mic cuts out) right here. So I teach you how to rank, I
teach you paid traffic guys. So the secret to how to get traffic when you don’t have a
following is to invest in paid traffic, and right here, showing you how to use
this paid traffic source along with Facebook ads,
you can get massive, massive traffic to your website
for not that much money, if you follow these timelines. However, if you don’t know how
to use paid traffic correctly you could easily be
wasting your money as well. So other than that, I
teach you how to create affiliate marketing website
from scratch in just an hour. So exactly like in this video and exactly like recordingnow.com which is my first affiliate marketing website. Last but not least, I teach you how to use the number one tool
for affiliate marketers and internet marketers alike,
click funnels which you guys may have heard of before,
and last but not least, I share my top five mistakes
with affiliate marketing that I wish I knew when I got started. It would have saved me months
if not years of frustration and headaches and failure. Alright, so that’s a quick
run through the course. Also included with my course is 24/7 direct messaging assistance. So this means if you message
me at any time of the day, asking any sort of affiliate
marketing questions, I will answer that in full in depth detail and I don’t know many other
affiliate marketing mentors who are willing to do that, especially mentors who make
four figures, five figure days with affiliate marketing. And last but not least, one
thing I want to tell you guys is right now, I’m actually
running a promotion on the course for a limited time. So if you want to access this discount, then definitely click the
link in the description, and do it soon because
I’m actually uploading over an hour of brand-new
lessons this week, and once those lessons get in there, the price of the course
is going to be increasing. Alright guys, I already
increased the price of the course one time when
I uploaded a couple of hours of lessons, but I’m gonna
be adding in more lessons this week, and once I do that, the price of the course
is going to increase for the second time and it may
keep increasing in the future as the spots and the
students continue to fill up. So just let you guys know that. If you want to get in on the course, the best value is to sign up today, honestly before the new lessons come in. Because if you sign up today, you actually get all updates for life. So you get lifetime access and updates, so you’ll get the new lessons as well, but for the price right
now, which is a fraction of the full price of the course. Alright, so if you guys
are interested in that you can reach out to me, you
can ask me any questions. I’m happy to help as always but I hope you guys enjoyed this video, and definitely check out my other videos and have a good one, peace guys.
