But before the story, my promise to you right now is…
If you read this post carefully to the end and follow what you’ll be learning, you will get every piece of information you need to consistently bank $1,000+ monthly (or it’s equivalent in your country’s currency).
In my country Nigeria, that is about N750,000K or more.
Now, let’s dive in
Starting a business online is a great way to make passive income with little or no experience, no academic qualifications, little or no capital, no age restrictions, and also as a side hustle.
There are a lot of businesses you can do online and make a lot of money from, but in this guide today, we will be discussing just one. And that is Affiliate Marketing.
Rachel’s journey to Financial freedom with Affiliate Marketing
There was a time when Rachel, a single mother of this beautiful 3 years old kid, was struggling to make ends meet. She had just broken up with her boyfriend who left without taking any responsibility for their daughter’s well-being.
She had just lost her job in 2020 due to the pandemic and was struggling to find a new one or just anything at all to put food on her table.
She had always been interested in starting her own business, but she had no idea where to start and didn’t have much money to invest.
So she went on to borrow money from her friends and a few family members to survive while she figured out what to do with her life.
She wasn’t a bad person,
She helped people when she had enough and she wasn’t wasteful… Her predicament was an unfortunate one that she just couldn’t avoid or control. So she got into debt and almost hated her life.
One day, while scrolling through social media, she stumbled on a post about affiliate marketing. She was curious and decided to do some research.
After the research, she learned that affiliate marketing was a way to earn an income by promoting products or services on behalf of a company and earning a commission for each sale and she thought this was something she could do if she got the opportunity to learn it.
Rachel was hesitant at first, but she figured she had nothing to lose. So after the training, she decided to give it a try and signed up for an affiliate program promoting a health and wellness product just like she was taught.
She spent her time creating valuable content about the product on her WhatsApp status and promoting her affiliate products through other social media platforms.
At first, she didn’t see much progress. But she didn’t give up. She continued to create and publish both written and image content, and slowly, people started asking about the product and how the product works.
All she had to do was tell them more about it and give them her Affiliate link for them to learn more about it and make a buying decision if they became interested.
And that was it!
People started visiting the product page through her Affiliate link, and some were making purchases.
And that was how she started making money little by little…
As her sales grew, so did her income. She was able to make more money through affiliate marketing than she ever made in her previous job.
Rachel was happy and grateful for the information and opportunity.
She had finally found a way to make a living doing something she was passionate about… taking care of her little daughter.
She paid off all her debts and kept on building and started using paid advertising methods like posting on other people’s WhatsApp statuses and TikTok accounts to reach more people.
As the months went by, Rachel’s affiliate marketing business continued to thrive. She was able to get herself a good car, register her daughter in a good school and even save some money for her dream home.
She was no longer broke and struggling, but instead was able to live comfortably and do what she loved every day.
Rachel’s story is a testament to the power of hard work, persistence, and determination.
She was able to turn her financial struggles around and build a successful business from the ground up.
And she did all these through Affiliate Marketing.
Affiliate marketing in Nigeria
Affiliate Marketing is simply a business model where one promotes a person’s products and gets paid a percentage of the revenue each time a sale is made.
It is a very simple business model that has made a lot of young people become millionaires within a short space of time.
How to start affiliate marketing in Nigeria
Affiliate marketing programs have been around for over 20 years, with the first known affiliate program launched by Amazon in 1996.
In 2021, the affiliate marketing industry was worth an estimated $12 billion globally.
The use of affiliate marketing is expected to continue to grow in the coming years, with many businesses incorporating it into their overall marketing strategy.
Making money with Affiliate Marketing works with just a simple framework – if you understand it, then you have 99% of all you need to start making money online.
Now, let me explain…
Product: Affiliate Marketing involves promoting helpful, meaningful Products to people who would likely need them.
These products can be in many forms such as
- Service based.
Making a lot of money from this business will depend on
1. The kind of products you can get to promote.
2. The problem the product solves
3. The price of the product and
4. How much commission the owner is willing to give to their Affiliates?
There are products for $400 in an affiliate network I belong to that pays 50% to Affiliates.
That means, when you make a single sale of this product, you’ll get $200 yourself immediately.
So in Affiliate Marketing, the product matters a lot.
The next is People:
As you’ve read, it is people who are going to buy the products for you to make a lot of money.
So what that simply means is that the number of people you bring to the product owner will determine how much sales they’ll make, and how much sales they make will determine how much you’ll earn.
In Affiliate Marketing especially online. There are several ways to get a lot of people to see the products you are promoting – including social media handles, blogs, YouTube, etc. But there are other ways like paying for adverts through Facebook ads, Google ads, or paying social media influencers.
This way, you can be getting as many as a thousand people to the product weekly, and there’s no way you won’t be making sales.
There’s a young boy in Nigeria who made a hundred million naira doing Affiliate Marketing (as an undergraduate)
Also a 17 years old girl in Nigeria that made her first 1 million in 2022 also with Affiliate Marketing.
And a whole lot of others…
And that is because they were able to bring a lot of people to see the products they’re promoting.
Don’t worry, I’ll show you how you too can get started at the end of this guide.
The next thing is
This is where you will be communicating with the people before sending them to the product owner’s website.
You must communicate with interested prospects before sending them to your Affiliate link because that’s the opportunity you have to make them understand more about the product and trust your recommendation.
Platforms you can use are; Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, WhatsApp, or your website.
I won’t be talking about using your website because it may sound technical to you.
But I will talk about social media.
There’s a female friend of mine who made millions simply by talking about a particular product on her Tiktok page and sending them to her WhatsApp.
I’ve made sales on Facebook before and also on WhatsApp. So I can tell you for free that the best place to start is on WhatsApp.
Now, what’s the marketing framework again?
Get a good product that solves problems (Health, Financial, Relationships)
Decide on a strategy to reach a lot of people on the internet who need the solution.
Have a platform where these people will come before sending them to the product sales page (Use Social media +WhatsApp)
Right here is a real goldmine.
You too can now go ahead and start your own Affiliate Marketing business and make as much money as you desire from it.
But don’t leave yet.
It’s true that before now, you may have seen a lot of opportunities and you may think they are not good enough, or they are hard… but the truth is: if you don’t do anything about your financial freedom, nobody will do it for you.
Just like Rachel, if she didn’t take advantage of that opportunity to learn, she would have remained in debt and still broke.
