Have you ever wondered why seasoned bloggers always say the “money is in the list”? Today I’m going to tell you how to make money with email affiliate marketing.
Growing your email list is very important as a blogger and online marketer. Your list, will not only help to keep you in touch with your tribe of loyal followers, but it’s also a money-making tool.
New bloggers are often afraid to sell, to their email subscribers because they don’t want them to unsubscribe. However, your email list will be one of the key components, to making money with affiliate marketing.
In addition, to making money with affiliate marketing, it is also key to making money selling your own digital products.
But I get it, I use to cringe each time I sent out an email, wondering how many unsubscribers I would have.
Eventually, I overcame my fears, and stop focusing on the number of unsubscribers. And you will too! Because guess what? If they do unsubscribe oh well, it just means, they didn’t align with your brand.
But this is a business, and you have a goal…maybe it’s to make money, or to help someone.
Email Affiliate Marketing
So how do you make money with email affiliate marketing?
First, you will want to use an email marketing company like ConvertKit, that allows affiliate links in your emails when promoting a product.
Using affiliate links in my weekly emails is affiliate marketing the easy way. Why? Because your subscribers have a relationship with you, and more than likely have come to trust your recommendations.
Before promoting a product via email, you will also want to confirm with the manager of the affiliate marketing program that it is ok, to use affiliate offers in emails. I know that amazon affiliates are not allowed to send links via email.
