Hi guys!

This is my very first tutorial, and I find this very effective when it comes to Youtube and affiliate marketing. As you may know, Youtube is the third most accessed site in the internet next to Google and Facebook. There are thousands of new videos that are being uploaded, and millions of viewers are generated daily on Youtube. If there are millions of viewers there on Youtube, there is a good chance that you can make money with them. There are people already who are making money on Youtube through affiliate marketing, regardless of the products that they are promoting.

Without further ado, here is the step-by-step Youtube + affiliate marketing strategy that is proven to be effective once applied:

Step #1. Choose a popular niche or something that you're passionate about

Choosing a niche is the first step that you must do. You need to find a niche that is hot, trending and popular. However, if you have something that you're passionate about, you could use that as well. For example, if you are passionate about gardening, you can use that as your strength. For sure, you will be comfortable in doing Youtube videos about gardening. However, if you are going for some trending and unsaturated niches that are being viewed on Youtube, you need to take your time studying on how they do videos about a specific niche. To give you an idea, games are one of the hottest niches today. If this is your strength, congratulations! However, if you had no idea how they make money in gaming niche using Youtube, one way to do that is by learning.

Step #2. Look for a product that is related to your niche

Once you have found the niche that you're looking for, it's time to find products that are related to your niche. For example, if your niche is about online dating, you should search for products that are related to that niche. See to it that their product has an affiliate program, or they belong to a specific affiliate platform like Clickbank, Amazon, etc.

Step #3. Creating a free information video

This is something that affiliate marketers aren't doing themselves. I see that they are just promoting affiliate products over and over again, just to rank themselves at the top of Google SERPs. Although there is nothing wrong with that, but they are just getting lower conversions. However, to do the other way around, you need to create a free information video that is related to your niche. For example, if you have something expertise about gardening, you can create a video about gardening tips, tricks, strategies, etc.

Step #4. Upload it on your Youtube channel

After you finished creating your free information video, upload it on your Youtube channel. Make sure that you have complete information on your Youtube channel with bio, profile picture, cover photo, etc. Once you have a Youtube channel that is complete and relevant into the eyes of the viewers, for sure they might be checking you out and subscribe, as long you give value to them. Strong call to action annotations and affiliate link (masked with URL shorteners) can help you a lot to increase your sales conversions. After uploading the video, go to the final step.

Step #5. Get targeted traffic by sharing the video to targeted social media groups or fan pages

The final step is to get traffic to your video. There are affiliate marketers who are using social traffic exchanges just to get more Youtube video views, subscribers and comments. But here's the harsh truth. Those people who view, subscribe and commented in your Youtube channel are not "real people". They are junk people who don't really care about your video, but they care more about getting views and getting money quick. This is not gonna work and it only wasted your time. You need to share your video to targeted social media fan pages, groups, etc. For example, if you are in the gardening niche and using Facebook, look for some groups that are talking about gardening. Join those groups and share your video. They have no problem in checking out your video because you are giving them free information about gardening. You can also share this to other social media platforms like Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn, Tumblr and so on.

There you have it folks! This is how you can make money with affiliate marketing and Youtube. However, this method itself won't make any promises to you that you can gain the same results as the ones who are already making money with it. The result will always vary based on your time, effort, value, quality and product choice you have. I know you may have learned a lot about this tutorial, but don't just learn. Take action!

To your affiliate marketing success! Cheers! :D

Affiliate marketing can be a great source of income for someone who is a little computer savvy. Once you have a website up (not required but recommended) create your social media profiles in conjunction with your site. Next will be YouTube, I recommend watching other ads to see how others are marketing their products. YouTube, if done correctly, can be the most effective FREE marketing tool online. It takes time to understand your market so patience is a key. Just always use Google and YouTube to look up "how to do" the different things that you want done in your marketing campaign.

Very well said Cleveland. Before doing Youtube marketing, we should study and analyze what others do in running their ads or making money with the products that they promote. It's very powerful, but also very strict nowadays. We should be following their terms and conditions in uploading videos to Youtube. I see that there are spammers who are just uploading low quality videos and emded up earning nothing or less. Quality prevails over quantity.
