Affiliate marketing—generating an income or commission through the promotion and recommendation of products, services and tools that others are selling—can be an amazing addition to your passive income portfolio and a wonderful way to round out your offerings, provide additional value to your audience and of course, get paid in return.Over the years, affiliate marketing has helped me generate more than a million dollars online.Affiliate marketing is a simple concept to understand and it’s cool because you can get started right away. But, it’s not easy to master and it takes time for it to become a consistent and reliable income stream for your business.When I started out online in 2008, affiliate marketing methods were more along the lines of finding products with great commissions, usually through an affiliate network with a number of different products to choose from. The next step was to buy advertisements through ad services like Google Adwords to drive traffic through those affiliate links.When people make a purchase after clicking on that advertisement, you could earn a commission, and I know a number of people who have made millions using this method.I’ve tried it myself, but I quickly lost $500 because of poor product selection and advertising.This kind of marketing is called “push marketing,” where you are pushing out a message or offer to a target audience in hopes of capturing their attention and finishing with some sort of transaction.My affiliate marketing methods involve more of a “pull marketing” strategy, where instead of aggressively reaching out to new people to drive sales, I’m instead including recommendations and affiliate links within existing conversations and the content that I already publish within my brand.If you want to build a long-term affiliate marketing strategy in your business, you must think about “pull” strategies.
