Trying to promote an inexpensive affiliate product on your blog? Perhaps a book or beauty product? If you aren’t getting any results, don’t worry. You’re not alone.
Sales conversion for affiliate products can be tricky. To make things simple, allow me to share some of my lessons learned over the years from affiliate marketing.
High or low priced item, doesn’t matter.
At first, I stayed away from affiliate marketing. I thought that in order to make a decent income, I had to sell high ticket items. But other than a great mattress that I purchased on Amazon, I couldn’t speak to anything else that was priced over $500.
Since I wanted to earn enough income to be able to replace my 9-5 income, I focused on 1:1 services and selling my own online programs. However, that didn’t get me very far either.
Through a little bit more trial and error, I soon learned that there are still ways to make a significant amount of money selling affiliate products. Even inexpensive products may be something that a reader wants to buy.
Let’s take selling Amazon books on your blog as an example. If readers end up buying other things on Amazon, you receive commission for those items as well.
So if you link to a $7 book on Amazon, the buyer may end up ordering other items to get free shipping. When that happens, you get credit for all of them as long as the buyer purchases everything within a certain timeframe.

What about for other online products?
For some of the online courses, ebooks, and apps that I recommend, the owner of the product will sometimes have an affiliate link for a freebie. This includes a free e-book, guide, challenge or video tutorial where readers have to sign up with their email address.
When possible, I tend to use their opt-in as my main affiliate link for their affiliate product. This way my sales are still tracked afterwards but the product owner is doing the hard selling.
After all, the product owner is the true expert of the product. By introducing a free opt-in to my readers, they can learn more about the product and the company owner. They can also get a feel for whether or not they are truly interested.
Building a profitable blog is totally doable even without a million views.
If you are feeling stuck in your business, trust me, I know how you feel. When I thought I tried everything possible under the sun, I thought it was a sign to give up.
And due to that, I was still seething at a cubicle. It got to a point where I felt so suffocated that I quit on an impulse. Yes, I quit without a Plan B and with over 20 years left on my mortgage.
Change your strategy, change your business, change your life.
Many bloggers like me skip over key affiliate marketing strategies. I thought I could learn affiliate marketing on my own by following other bloggers. Sounds good, right? Wrong.
That all changed when I came across Making Sense of Cents, a blog that covers affiliate marketing strategies. After hearing a few podcast interviews of the author Michelle, I figured what do I have to lose.
Michelle earns over six figures a month on her blog. Last month, she made $104,065 to be exact. She makes over $50,000 a month just through simple affiliate marketing strategies!
After taking the course, I started applying different affiliate marketing strategies that resonated most with me. I wanted to do what felt most authentic. For instance, I’m not excited about Twitter, so I didn’t use those particular social media strategies.
Soon I was noticing a gradual and consistent increase in my monthly revenue. Through all the trial and error over the years, I can with confidence that her affiliate marketing tips work.
Are you missing out on passive income?
Through Michelle’s course, I learned that I was leaving a lot of passive income on the table. Michelle earns over $50,000 a month through affiliate marketing. In her course, she shares exact steps she’s taken to earn over $300,000 from a single blog post.
Yeperz, it can really just take one blog post. The affiliate marketing course also covers great Pinterest marketing strategies! Most importantly, she covers the latest affiliate marketing disclosure rules needed on the website, social media and so forth.
