income is through affiliate marketing. You've probably heard of it. If you're wondering what it is, then this is the right video for you. So affiliate marketing is basically a product or a service referral system. So, for example, you have a friend that
is offering her coaching services. In your line of work, you know a lot
of people looking to upgrade their skills to look for someone who can train them. So even if they don't know each other,
you can bring those two together and you'll be the affiliate.

So you'll be referring your coach friend to those
who are looking for someone to train them or will coach them. Your friend coach will give
you a part of their earnings as an affiliate or as a partner, which is like a referral. I don't want to use "referral" because
there's a negative connotation about that, where there's pyramiding, it's not.

Affiliate marketing is so different from that. This is more on promoting
businesses and helping them get the word out about their
product and services. In a way, you're also helping
your other acquaintances to find a recommended service for them. So in this video, I will share with you how
much you can earn with affiliate marketing, what are the requirements, where you can become a partner or affiliate, where you can join, what are the pros and cons, and also tips on
becoming a successful affiliate marketer. Obviously, I know you're here
because you want to earn. I'm actually doing affiliate marketing. So if you've seen my videos, below it
I promote Shopee products links or Lazada, right? If you click on it, you will still see the same product,
same price, no additionals.

But Lazada or Shopee or whatever store it is, they will give me a part of their earnings
for referring business to them. So that's how affiliate marketing works. The first website I tried is Involve Asia. This is my dashboard now. As you can see I have a balance. I still haven't withdrawn from them because I still haven't made a
carrier out of affiliate marketing. I'm just checking if it will work or not, which are the links below. So I'm not really actively
promoting it on our videos. But if some of you likes– for example the things
that you see here and the links are down below, if you click on it and you buy that product, then a small part of the
proceeds will also go to me.

Another affiliate marketing, not just
for products, are for services or for sites. So a while back I shared with you some of the proofreading jobs
that you can apply online. I also provided a free seminar where
you don't need to pay for proofreading where you can train as a proofreader. In return, in referring to them, people who want to be a
part of their business, okay? Not necessarily who will pay
them since the seminar is free. They gave me this amount, okay? I've already withdrawn it on my PayPal. That is the proof of payment. What I've done is I referred some people
to them or some viewers to them who can be part of their business. So these people who I referred didn't pay
anything because this is a free seminar. But this website here is an asset to them. They have people– for example, they have an extra
business, they can hire as part of their employees or as part of their business, who will help to provide proofreading services.

So that's kind of like how affiliate works. So what are the requirements to join an affiliate? Technically, there are no set requirements. Actually, there aren't age requirements also, no experience is required. Because it's up to you on how to promote
or market their product or service. But it still depends on what you'll join. For example, Lazada is now requiring BRI form.

So you need to have business
permits and stuff. But usually, what you need is active followers, and be able to provide them where you'll
promote their products or services. Okay, so here in the Philippines where
can you become an affiliate? Where can I join as an affiliate? So #1 is Involve Asia Involve Asia doesn't require any
minimum followers or anything like that. As long as you can provide the vlog or your YouTube
channel, or Facebook page or Instagram, where you have active people to promote
your affiliate links, then that is already good. So that is #1, Involve Asia. Then #2 Lazada Affiliate. Lazada's affiliate programs aren't always open. I've tried in the past and I always miss their deadline. Then, the last time I checked because they are open this August they're already requiring the
BRI form or BRI certificate along with a couple of other IDs. So if you are a registered business owner or
professional or if you have that kind of form, because nowadays it's hard to take
care of papers in government offices.

But if you already have those, then you can apply as a Lazada affiliate. So your favorite products on Lazada, all you have to do is just create a link on their affiliate program. Then, paste the link on different platforms
like Facebook page or Instagram page. If somebody clicks that link, then you will earn a small commision. Next is Shopee. So Shopee has a Shopee Ambassador Programme. Actually, I just joined their webinar yesterday. But the thing is, this is for an exclusive invite. Not everyone can join the
Shopee Ambassador Programme It's a recently launched program
where you need to have active followers. to which you can promote
your favorite products from Shopee. Next, we have– this is probably
not only for the Philippines but all over the globe, it's Amazon. We all know that Amazon has a lot of products. So if you're an Amazon affiliate, same as Lazada and Shopee, choose a product you want to promote. Then, create a link and put it online, anywhere, like in your YouTube description,
pinned comment, Facebook page, or promote it in different Facebook groups, so that
someone clicks on the link, that's how it works.

Apart from Amazon, you also
have eBay Partner Program. I still haven't checked this but I've heard of eBay Partner Program. Same way that Amazon and
Lazada affiliates works. Then the last one is Productlink. So Productlink is under Involve Asia
but it gives a bigger commission. The problem with Productlink is the link
you'll be giving will be valid for only 30 days. They require to have a minimum 10,000 active
followers on your social media platform. 10,000 on YouTube or 10,000 on Facebook or 10,000 on Instagram. Those are the six different portals where
you can apply as an affiliate partner. Of course, there are more
different types of affiliation. But these six are the I would say the
most popular here in the Philippines because promoting product links is
easier compared to service links because you already have a promotion to do.

Like me, I make videos and it's easier to promote
because our videos already have followers, right? What are the pros and cons
of affiliate marketing? What are the good things
about affiliate marketing? Of course, #1 is passive income. Once you put the link out here, you
don't need to do anything else. You'll just need to wait to
reach the minimum payout or withdrawal amount. Then, that's it. As long as the link is still valid
and someone's clicking on it so even if you're sleeping and someone
clicks on your link and buys using that link, then you will continue to earn commisions.

#2 Free schedule. So you can work as much
or as little as you want. For example, you made these days
a product link on how to promote it either through a Facebook post, or a
YouTube video or an Instagram post and then you've put the link. Then, if you want to create more products
or if you want to create more links, then that is up to you.

Of course, the more links, and the more
products, the more promotions, the better. But you're not tight on schedule. It's not like 9 to 5 jobs. It's up to you on how much time you can spend to market links. #3 It's straightforwards and easy. That is all you have to do. Look for a product or service
you want to promote make a link of it on the partner program. Then promote it anywhere
online and then that's it. You'd just need to wait for your payout. Now, what are the cons? Or what are the bad things? Maybe not bad but not
really our favorite, right? #1 as I said earlier, there's a negative
connotation of referral links. I see a lot of: "Are you earning
just because of referrals?" So, I don't know, for me, it's a little bit toxic to
call it or to refer it that way.

Because referrals are for those who'll
click, if they want to click or not. It is never forced upon anyone, right? So all these content creators
are just giving you options. Whether or not you want to earn here. Do you think this is a fit for you? If not, it's fine. Of course, businesses, a lot of them, maybe they know how to create
the product or the service but they are not sure on how to market it. That is the specialty of affiliate partners or content creators. It's how to market and promote
different links and products. That is what content creators or YouTubers do. They show you your options online, right? That is sometimes the problem:
"That's a referral, I don't want it" or something to that effect. There's a negative connotation. But again, that is up to you. Then #2 your marketing strategy
may not always click.

So, of course, even with me although our channel is kind of big, not all of my videos click. Not every video reaches my
expected numbers of views. So sometimes we have
strategies that don't work. For example, sometimes I used a wrong wording
or my way of promoting was wrong, or the timing or maybe the way I packaged
the information wasn't nice. So it's still a trial and error kind of thing. Not all marketings work out.

So that's one of the cons
of affiliate marketing. #3 is finding the right products
or services to refer. So looking for one is a little hard, especially
if you're just starting with affiliate marketing. It's a little hard to find products
or services that you'll refer. For example, you're passionate about gardening. That is trending nowadays. You want to promote a certain shop or a certain
product about gardening tools or home tools. But you posted it on a makeup vlog. So not everyone who is interested in makeup
will be interested in the gardening stuff. You always have to think
of where to place your ad. So that is what I mean, sometimes it's hard to
find a product or service that you'll be referring because not everyone likes
what most people like.

So what are my tips for a more
successful affiliate marketing? So before telling it, I'm not
an affiliate marketing expert, but it is one of the things that you
can earn from as a side income. You saw earlier my dashboard from Involve Asia, so it's not that big. So I wouldn't set your expectations unless you have a lot of followers and you're
super active in posting affiliate links. But based on my research
you can earn up to $10,000 This is probably in another country, right? Here in the Philippines, I would say
around ₱10,000-15,000 a month for an average affiliate marketer. Back to the tips, we went a bit far. First, think of a useful content. When you're selling you can't just display it because you're not the merchant. You are the marketer. You have to think: "Why will this be successful?" So it has to be something of
value to your intended audience. So they need to learn something just apart
from the product or service you're promoting. #2 Proper placing of links.

You need to put it in the right niche. Here we go again with the niche. You have to think about your intended audience. Where do they often stay or view the content? Is it on Facebook? Is it on YouTube? What type of Facebook page or YouTube
page will you be putting in your links? So those are some of the things you
need to consider in placement. Of course, my last tip for you
is to just do it continuously. Of course, not everyone who first started
with affiliate marketing earned right away. Even me, as I said I'm not that active, I still haven't withdrawn from
Involve Asia up to now. That's why this content about
affiliate marketing took a while. One other affiliate marketing service that
worked for me was the proofreading one. If you're just starting with affiliate marketing, try it, do not stop. So that your earnings are bigger and so that you get the hang of what will work
and what is not the most effective strategy. Then you just keep on making those
affiliate links and posting them online.

Again, here is one of our proof of earnings
from one of our affiliate partners. The ones I referred here didn't pay anything. Actually, they gained information
on how to be a proofreader. Or how to get a proofreader business, right? On our videos, the reason
why we're sharing so much I'm hoping that you will find the right fit for you. Affiliate marketing is honestly not for everyone. So among all the online gigs, you need to find the
one fit or suitable for you, the one just right for you. Hopefully for this video, you've learned hopefully something and
are willing to try affiliate marketing. If it's gonna work for you. If you have any questions or if
I missed anything on our video, please free to comment it down below so
that we can check the information. I will see again on our next video. Thank you for watching, bye!.
