How To Make Fast Sales As An Affiliate On Warrior Plus

I got this question today from one of my Facebook friends, ‘ How to make fast sales as an affiliate on warrior plus?.  In order to answer that question, I decided to create this post so that I can show you step by step how you can do it.

How to make fast sales as an affiliate on warrior plus

Step 1: Find a high converting offer

In order to select a good offer to promote on Warrior Plus you need to click on the affiliate tab then offers as shown in the image below.

https://warriorplus.com/affiliate/offers

How To Make Fast Sales As An Affiliate On Warrior Plus

 

The offer will be arranged in a popularity order (the one that makes most of the sales on the given day will be at the top ).

This is my recommendation for selecting affiliate offers.

Select an offer that has a price point of $5 and $20

These offers are easier to sell, just make sure they have an upsell so that when a person buys from you, you have a chance to make money from upsells they might buy.

Select affiliate offers that were launched between 3 to 12 months ago.

Most Warrior Plus vendors want to attract super-affiliates during their launch period and in order to do this they need to keep high numbers like conversion ratio, visitor value, and low refund rates, so if you don’t have any sales yet there is a high possibility that you won´t be approved.

In order to increase your chance you need to choose products that were launched 3 to 12 months ago, this won’t hurt the vendor so much and probably big guys are not promoting it anymore so it is easier for the vendor to approve you, I won’t go further than that.

When you make some sales, you can start to apply for new launches and this can skyrocket your profit.

Select offers with 1000+ sales

You need to promote a product with more than 1000 sales, this is because if the product can’t sell at least 1000 units after 3 months probably it is not a good product to sell.

Select offers with a conversion ratio of 10%+

You need to select a product with a conversion ratio of 10% or more, this means that for every 10 visitors you sent to the offer at least one purchase it, this is not an exact science, it could be a little bit more or a little bit less but I won’t go to promote a product with less than 5% conversion ratio.

Select affiliate offers with a $1 visitor value.

This means roughly you will make $1 for every persona that clicks that affiliate link, for example, if you send 100 visitors you will be expected to make around $100, again this is not an exact science, it can vary depending on your call to action and traffic source.

The higher this number the better, don’t promote offer below $0.8 visitor value.

Select offers with less than a 10% refund ratio.

This is the number of people who purchased the product but decided to request their money back, this may be because the product is fraudulent, or the product didn’t deliver the promise on the sales page (that is why you need to buy the product for yourself first), even if the product is perfect some people will still ask for a refund, this is the nature of this business.

You need to make sure that the refund ratio is less than 10%, this means you will have one refund for every 10 sales, this is not bad, for me personally I go for products with less than 5%.

So these are 6 things you should consider when it comes to selecting Warrior Plus products to promote as an affiliate after you find the products that reach those requirements then move to the next step.

How To Make Fast Sales As An Affiliate On Warrior Plus

 

Go to https://warriorplus.com/affiliate/offers

If you were approved to promote the offer you should see a green icon with getting link message.

dcb

Note

I know this offer does not fit in the criteria above, I used that actually as a case study, yes I did make fast sales but the conversion rate was not that great, that is why you want to select a product with a higher conversion rate.

You should be able to see a screen like this, just copy your affiliate link.

dcb

Paste that link where it says on submit go to, then click the big save button you’re done for this time.

How To Make Fast Sales As An Affiliate On Warrior Plus

 

Cloak your link

After creating your squeeze page, connecting it to your autoresponder you need to cloak your link, we are going to use Bitly for this.

dcb

 

After setting up everything you will get your squeeze page link, I do not recommend to directly promote this link, I will recommend cloaking it.

In order to cloak your affiliate link, I will recommend using bit.ly. Just go to bit.ly, create an account (it is free ).

bitly

 

 

Click on the create button, copy the long ugly affiliate link that you got from Clickbank and paste it where it says PASTE LONG URL, then click create, that is it you will get the link like this one. bit.ly/37zF3mW

Step 3: Test if it works

Now you have done the hard work, you need to test if everything is working, just click your own link or open it to a new browser, use your email address to opt-in, make sure it redirects you to your affiliate offer, and make sure that you get the first email from your autoresponder.

If something is wrong fix it before you move to the next step.

Note:

Most people skip this step, trust me you do not want to send people to your page and they can not opt-in or they do not get your email, please make sure you do this step.

Step 4: Get fast traffic to the squeeze page 

To get fast and good quality traffic we are going to use solo ads, this is the issue, most people will tell you that this traffic does not work, it does just need to promote certain offers, and warrior plus offer a perfect for this.

For solo ads, we are going to use Udimi

To get started just go to Udimi.com and sign up for free.

udimi

Buy your solo ads

I will recommend buying 100 clicks, this will help you to evaluate your squeeze page and if the traffic is good enough you should be able to make a sale if not,  do not buy from that seller again.

Just log in to your Udimi account and click find sellers.

I will recommend buying clicks that cost less than 0.5 and a seller must have at least 20% sales and more than 100 reviews, here is the filter I use.

udimi

Before you buy you can contact the seller, you can ask them how they build their list, and you can even subscribe to it ( in order to see what kind of offers they send to their list).

If you find a seller that reaches those criteria, select that seller, pay for the traffic (either by Paypal or by Credit/Debit card) and provide them a link.

The results you should expert

There are three things here that will determine your success, your squeeze page, the offer, and the quality of traffic.

Squeeze page

When I tried that squeeze page it converted at 30 percent, I sent 104 visitors and 30 people joined my list, that is a decent opt-in ratio but I could do better. You should expect the opt-in rate of 20 to 50, if it is on the lower end try to tweak your squeeze page, modify your wording, color, or style and test again.

Traffic

The quality of traffic+the squeeze page will determine the opt-in rate if you know that the squeeze page always converts better but from this traffic source, it is converting lower, buy traffic from another seller.

Again if you get an opt-in rate between 40 and 50 % that is great, keep getting more traffic.

Product

This is why it is important to select an offer with at least a conversion rate of 10% if you send, 100 clicks and 40 people opt-in, it means that 40 people will see the offer if you have an offer that converts at 10% you will have 4 sales but if you have an offer that converts at 3% you will make one sale, that can make and break your business, always select a high converting offer to promote.

You should always test small, (buy just 100 clicks for less than $50), if it works great buy more if it does not, no worries you try the next seller, or you change optimize your squeeze page and test again.

My results

In this campaign, I got 39 new people on my list and I made two commissions for a total of $16

Sales

sale

Leads

solo

I invested $46, I was able to make back $16, I could have made more if I had chosen a higher converting offer, also remember I got 39 people on my list that I can send them emails and make sales when they buy in the future, this is how you build your list and make money at the same time.

Final words

That is it, this is how you make fast sales as an affiliate on warrior plus, if you have some cash go and test it, let me know how it worked for you.

It is highly recommended to add at least one Paypal account, as most buyers/vendors use that service

Also make sure that you add your real name, your photo, and some social media to your profile, this will create trust between vendors and you and it will be easier for you to get approved when you request permission to promote a product.

Just go to edit profile and add all the required information.

3. find a good offer to promote

In order to select a good offer to promote on Warrior Plus you need to click on the affiliate tab then offers as shown in the image below.

https://warriorplus.com/affiliate/offers

how to make money with warrior plus

 

This is my recommendation for selecting affiliate offers.

Select affiliate offers that pay you between $5 and $20 with a 100% commission on front-end sales.

In my experience, I found out that products that sell between $5 and $20 on the front end offer have a better conversion especially if you’re just starting out. The only thing that you need to make sure of is that the offer has some upsells and they pay you 100% commissions on the front end funnel.

Select affiliate offers that were launched between 3 to 12 months ago.

Most Warrior Plus vendors want to attract super-affiliates during their launch period and in order to do this they need to keep high numbers like conversion ratio, visitor value, and low refund rates, so if you don’t have any sales yet there is a high possibility that you won´t be approved, in order to increase your chance you need to choose products that were launched 3 to 12 months ago, this won’t hurt the vendor so much and probably big guys are not promoting it anymore so it is easier for the vendor to approve you, I won’t go further than that.

When you make some sales, you can start to apply for new launches and this can skyrocket your profit.

Select offers with 1000+ sales

You need to promote a product with more than 1000 sales, this is because if the product can’t sell at least 1000 units after 3 months probably it is not a good product to sell.

Select offers with a conversion ratio of 10%+

You need to select a product with a conversion ratio of 10% or more, this means that for every 10 visitors you sent to the offer at least one purchase it, this is not an exact science, it could be a little bit more or a little bit less but I won’t go to promote a product with less than 5% conversion ratio.

Select affiliate offers with $1 visitor value.

This means roughly you will make $1 for every persona that clicks that affiliate link, for example, if you send 100 visitors you will be expected to make around $100, again this is not an exact science, it can vary depending on your call to action and traffic source.

The higher this number the better, don’t promote offer below $0.8 visitor value.

Select offers with less than a 10% refund ratio.

This is the number of people who purchased the product but decided to request their money back, this may be because the product is fraudulent, or the product didn’t deliver the promise on the sales page (that is why you need to buy the product for yourself first), even if the product is perfect some people will still ask for a refund, this is the nature of this business.

You need to make sure that the refund ration is less than 10%, this means you will have one refund for every 10 sales, this is not bad, for me personally I go for products with less than 5%.

So these are 6 things you should consider when it comes to selecting Warrior Plus products to promote as an affiliate after you find the products that reach those requirements then move to the next step.

 Buy the product

This is one of the deadly mistakes that new affiliates make, you want to buy a product before you even start to promote it.

I highly recommend buying a product before even requesting permission to promote it.

Why you need to buy a product.

To familiarize with it: It is the best practice to know the product you’re promoting, first, this will make sure that the product is of high quality and second it will save you from embarrassment when one of your prospects ask you how to use the product if you don’t know how you will lose your credibility and trust me it is very difficult to get it back.

It is easy to get approved: Some vendors are very reluctant to let new affiliates to promote their products especially if you don’t have any sales, the best way is to buy their product, and let them know that you liked it (if it is the case) and you would like to promote it (send them a receipt to show that you bought the products), I got approved every time I used this trick.


Request permission to promote

In order to promote offers, you will need to be specifically approved by the vendor to do so.

In order to get approved this is what you need to do:

The “Get Offers” page is found in the Affiliate section (Click on “Affiliates” in the top menu and then “Offers”), and there you will be able to browse through the offers available for you to promote.

Select the offer do you want to promote considering the criteria discussed in step 3.

How To Make Money With Warrior Plus request approval

 

So just click on the request button and you will be directed to the affiliate offer page where you can see some of the details.

Just fill the form that you will see, tell them that you want to promote their offer, tell them the traffic method you will use and that is it.

request approval

Some of the vendors will approve you and some won’t if you’re not approve don’t worry try the next offer.

In order to increase your approval rate you can do  the following

Record a video

You can use your smartphone to record yourself showing your face, you can say something like this, Hi, Vendors name, my name is ‘your name’ I am a new affiliate here at Warrior Plus, I have been learning how to build a business from ‘name a big marketer who teaches affiliate marketing’ I would like to promote your product, I will use ‘name the traffic strategy’ as my main traffic method to drive visitor to your offer, thank you ‘your name’.

You can adopt a little bit to fit you, after finishing that video upload it to youtube make sure it is unlisted(only people with a link can see it).

Take a link and send it to them via the comment section on Warrior Plus, if you do this your approval rate will be more than 90%.

Add them to social media

Another way to get approval is to add those vendors in social media, you need to make sure that your social media have the same name as in Warrior Plus and you use your real picture, after adding them, just reach out to them and tell them that you want to promote their product, most of the time the will approve you.

Those are two methods you can use to increase your approval ratio.

Once approved, you will receive an email from the system and then you will be able to access your affiliate links for that product.

Get Your Affiliate Link(s)

Click on “Affiliates” in the top menu and then click on “get links” and you will be taken to this page here: https://warriorplus.com/wsopro/affiliate/get-offers.php?&show=active

On this page, you will find all the offers that you were approved to promote as an affiliate. Find the offer you’re looking for and then click on the green button that says “Get Link” next to the offer and inside the window that pops up, you will be able to copy Your Affiliate Link.

get your link

This is an example of an offer that meets all requirements I mentioned in the steps above, I made 2 sales when I was testing this, I just sent the offer to my list and the traffic is still coming.

4: Promote your offer

Cloak your link

After your affiliate link, I do not recommend promoting directly this link, I will recommend cloaking it.

In order to cloak your affiliate link, I will recommend using bit.ly. Just go to bit.ly, create an account (it is free ).

cloak

Click on the create button, copy the long ugly affiliate link that you got from Clickbank and paste it where it says PASTE LONG URL, then click create, that is it you will get the link like this one. bit.ly/37zF3mW

Drive traffic to your affiliate link

We are going to use Facebook to drive traffic to your affiliate offer.

Facebook is huge for free and paid traffic, but today I am just going to explain how you can generate free traffic from Facebook.

Basically, there are two ways to generate free traffic from Facebook, using your own Facebook profile and creating a Facebook group.

Generating free traffic by just using your profile.

Generating traffic by using your profile is the simplest way to generate traffic from Facebook, you can do it in just two steps.

Create and optimize your Facebook profile

Facebook traffic

 

You can use your current Facebook account or you can create a new one just for your online business, this depends on you.

Once you create your account, you will need to make sure you use your real name and photo, this will increase the credibility, also make sure that you add your affiliate link on your profile, you can add a small caption and a call to action, for example, I will help you to make $100 per day online, click the link below.

2) Find big Facebook accounts in your niche and start interacting with their content, leave comments, likes and share their content, look to people who reply to your comments, and add them as friends ( some of them will add you first).

Some of these people will start coming to your Facebook profile to find more about you, and since you optimized your profile in the first part, some of them will click on the affiliate link on your page, some of them will buy from you.

This method works very well even if you have zero experience, let them come to you, do not spam them, do not inbox them but if someone inbox you with a question reply to them and build some connections.

What type of results to expect?

Depending on how the offer converts, you should expect one sale for around 10 people who click on your affiliate link.

How to increase your affiliate sales?

All friends that you will be adding are interested in making money online when you find a good product that teaches people a specific method of making money online, you can write a simple post like this, ‘I found a way to make money on Facebook without building a blog, making videos or building a list, if do you want to learn how, comment ‘I want it’ below’.

Some people will comment ‘I want it ‘, all you need to do is to send them an inbox with a simple message, here is the method I was talking about in the post, and then send them your affiliate link.

What next?

When you start to make money, you will need to start to build your email list and invest some money to buy traffic.

To build an email you will need an autoresponder and a landing page builder.

For an autoresponder, I will recommend Aweber.

For a landing page builder, I will recommend Clickfunnels.

Final Word

So these are 7 steps on how to make money with Warrior Plus, if do you have any questions let me know so that I can help you. Take massive action and you will see results.

8 Things Every Blogger Must Do Every Day

One of the best things about being a blogger is freedom. That comes with a price though, you need to have discipline. There are things you need to do every day if you want to be a successful blogger, here are the 8 things every blogger must do every day in order to succeed.

8 Things Every Blogger Must Do Every Day

8 things every blogger must do every day.

1) Blog Everyday.

This is big, my recommendation is it if you want to have a successful blog you need to blog every day, especially if it is your first blog.

I know there are some gurus out there that tell you that you should not, the main reason that I recommend blogging every single day is that when your just starting out, you do not know your voice yet, your writing will not be the best, so blogging every day will help you to practice and improve, remember doing is the only way to learn something.

2) Take Care of Yourself.

8 Things Every Blogger Must Do Every Day

When you start blogging, most of the time you will be sitting with your computer, and that can be bad for your health, my recommendation with this is that you need to start eating healthily, doing some physical exercises, and sleeping well.

For me what I do is that I walk 10,000 steps 4-5 days per week, reducing the amount of sugar I take and I sleep 7 to 8 hours per day.

By doing this I improved my general health and my productivity has increased a lot, find out what fits your personality and go for it.

3)  Promote  Your Blog

You need to promote your blog, especially if it is not getting enough traffic from Google, the issue here is that from posting an article to your blog and ranking it and start getting free traffic it may take between 3 weeks and 3 months.

You need to create a couple of social media accounts where you can share your blog and bring some visitors to your site.

4) Improve Your Offer.

There are many ways to make money from your blog, it does not matter if you are selling your own product and services or you are promoting affiliate offers, always there is a way to improve your offer, you can make your product better, you can add bonuses to affiliate offers, etc.

You need to find out which type of content is bringing more traffic to your site and promote offers that match those inquires.

5) Get Paid.

money

If the main reason for creating your blog was to make money then you need to make sure that every day you get paid.

It is very difficult to accomplish this when you’re just starting but after few months your blog will start generating income.

You can learn 10 ways to make money from your blog here.

6) Live a Life.

8 Things Every Blogger Must Do Every Day

Blogging can be very addictive, especially when you start making some money and most people start to neglect the main reason why they started a blog in the first place, their freedom.

You need to find time to do things you love, enjoy life, go out with your friends or spouse, play with your kids if you have, etc.

7) Engage with your audience.

When your audience starts to grow, some of them will start leaving comments on your blog or social media, you need to find time to reply to those comments and answer any question they might have for you. I know this can be very difficult as your blog gets bigger but you must find the time.

8) Read more than you write.

You need to read more, that is the truth, find some bigger bloggers in your niche, I would say 10 to 20 follow them, read everything they write.

This will help you to find out what topics are hot at the moment, you will get exposed to different writing styles and blog layouts, if you leave comments and engage with their content, you will start building relationships with other bloggers and this can benefit you a lot.

Final words

Those are the 8 things every blogger must do every day in order to succeed, how many among those things are you doing right now? let me know in the comment section below.

10 Reasons Why You Should Start A Blog in 2021

There are some gurus out there telling people that blogging is dead, this is not true at all, that is why in this post I am going to share with you 10 reasons why you should start a blog in 2021.

Can you make money blogging in 2021?

This is the question I get every day, the simple answer is yes, you can make a lot of money blogging, I own several blogs and I make money from all of them and I know many people who make full-time blogging.

Here are 10 ways you can make money from blogging.

10 Reasons Why You Should Start A Blog in 2021

10 reasons why you should start a blog in 2021

So here are the reasons why.

1) Income for years to come.

One of the reasons why you should create a blog in 2021 is the possibility of creating an income stream for many years to come.

If you publish high-quality articles on your blog, they will keep bringing traffic and sales to your blog for many years to come (as long as the information is relevant).

I have a blog that I create 3 years ago, posted few articles, I still get sales from it.

2) Cheap to set up.

I had a local store before moving online, in order to make my business run, I had to rent a store, buy merchandise and stay there all day waiting for customers to come to the store.

The good thing about blogging is that it is very cheap to set up, you can get a domain name and host for less than $1oo per year.

For the domain name, I recommend Namecheap.

For the hosting, I recommend Bluehost.

3) It could replace your job.

When your blog starts to gain traction and start making you some money, the income will increase very quickly.

Depending on where you live, this income can replace the income you get from your job even in less than a year.

For me living in Mexico, I was getting around $10000 per year, to have a blog that is generating about $900 was enough to replace my income.

If you make more money from your job, let say $10,000 per month, it may take you more time for your blog to replace your income.

After reaching this point most people decide to leave their job some not, I did not leave my job. Actually, I like my job.

4) You could work from anywhere.

This is another thing I like about blogging, you can blog from anywhere. Sometimes I blog from my bed, sometimes at the beach, sometimes I go to the library, and when I travel I write a lot of blog posts during my flight especially those long haul ( my favorite route is Mexico City-Instabul, which is 12 on the plane).

So if you are the type of person who likes to travel the work, blogging is for you and you can start one today.

5) Your blog can explode.

When you start blogging few people will be reading your blog, as you publish more articles, you will attract more visitors.

As your blog becomes more popular there is a possibility of your blog exploding, this is what I mean, let say your blog gets 1000 visitors per day and makes you $100, one day you will wake up with and your blog will be receiving 10,000 of visitors and $1,000, and that will change your life forever.

All you need is one article that will get viral, but it is very difficult to predict which one, so keep blogging, and before you know it your blog will go viral.

6) It is a great community.

When you have a blog you will be able to connect with other bloggers, most bloggers will be more than happy to help you out, you can ask questions and other bloggers will be happy to answer them, you can use your experience and help others.

There are many great bloggers communities on the web, just go to Facebook and find groups that are related to blogging and you will find a lot of them.

My favorite affiliate/blogging community is Affilorama, you can join it for free here.

7) Work at your own pace.

When you start a blog, there is no boss to tell you when you should blog, and no one will force you to blog, you can choose the schedule that suits you.

You can blog every day, you can blog every weekend or when you feel like it( I do not recommend though).

This will give you flexibility, for example, you can still have a normal job and still run a blog as I did, you can write two posts per day and accelerate your success, the choice is yours.

8) Spend more time with family.

When you start making money from your blog, it can give you the freedom to spend more time with the family.

Since you have a flexibility of time, you can choose to spend more time having breakfast and dinner with your family, you can take your significant other out, travel, and do anything that will keep your family together.

9) It is a good investment for the future.

Do not get me wrong, starting a successful blog is hard, and it may take you a long time before you start seeing and type of income and most people quit before reaching the point that the blog will generate them and money.

But each article you post in your blog is an investment for the future, let me put it like this,  let say that each article you write will make you $1 per day three month from now, if you write one article per day in three months you should start making at least $100 per day.

So each article you post on your blog is a future investment.

10) It will open new doors for you.

Blogging is great, your readers will see you as an expert in the topic, companies will start contacting you for your advice, you will start getting speaking gigs, book proposals, etc. The limit is not the sky here, the limit is your imagination.

You have no idea how many companies wants you to work with me, many of them want me to promote their products in my blogs but one that caught my attention was Resideo, yes the former Honeywell home, in June last year they contacted me to form part of their digital marketing team, guess how they found me, one of their recruiters read my blog.

Final words

Those are my 10 reasons why you should start a blog in 2021, do you have a blog? if yes share your link in the comment section below, and if the answer is no, it is time to create one, here is how you can start an affiliate marketing blog.

 

10 Ways To Drive Traffic To Your Affiliate Link Through Instagram

Instagram is one of the best platforms to get traffic, free or paid, in this post, I am going to share with you 10 ways to drive traffic to your affiliate link through Instagram for free.

I have used this method to drive traffic to my Clickbank affiliate products and I have very good results, that is why I decided to start another page and share the tips with you.

If you do not have any offer to promote to your Instagram page, you can pick one from Clickbank, I go into detail on how to choose the best Clickbank product to promote here.

10 ways to drive traffic to your affiliate link through Instagram

10 ways to drive traffic to your affiliate link through Instagram

1) Make Your Name SEO Friendly

This is crucial when naming your page make sure that it reflects your business or what is your page is about, stop using random names, be intentional and smart about this.

Keep your username whatever you’d like, but when it comes to your NAME (the bold text right above your bio, change it to something that clearly describes the goal of your page:

-Passive Income Jet

-Numerology Secrets

-Morning Meditation

-Affiliate Marketing Tips

-BBQ Aficionado 

-Retirement Income Strategies

I just created a brand new Instagram page, please follow it here.

 

2) Keep Your Bio Short, Sweet, & Precise 

Before people start to follow you, they will check out your bio, in order to attract the right people who are interested in what you have to say make sure that your bio is short and straight to the point.

Don’t feel the need to overload it with emojis or give yourself a dozen titles:

For example.

I help complete beginners make money online through affiliate marketing.”

I help complete bloggers to make a living just using their blog.”

I help businesses to generate leads online.”

 

Just find a simple statement that explains what do you do online.

 

3) Use a Preset Filter On Your Photos

This will help you keep your page consistent without overthinking it when it comes time to post. Use VSCO or the Lightroom App.

4) Use Canva to create content for your page.

Inspirational Quotes and posts are doing well on Instagram. Hop over to Canva and check out their premade templates and plug your favorite quotes in.

If you don’t have design experience or a background in graphics, you’re going to love the simplicity of Canva.

5) Use Your Face, Not Your Logo

instagram

People like to follow and buy from other people, yes you got a great logo and you love it, I get this but if you put your own image on your page, people will trust it more and will click on your affiliate link.

Even sometimes post personal photos on your page, this will help you to connect with like-minded people in your niche.

6) Don’t Use Super-Long Links in Your Bio

I do not recommend using super long links like affiliate links on your bio, first, there is limited space for a link on your bio, second, they look ugly.

You can use Bit.ly for shortening your links as I used here below or If you have a WordPress blog you can install a redirect plugin ( my favorite is a pretty link) and use it to redirect your links. This will go a long way and make your link look professional and well planned.

instagram

7) Use #Hashtags

Before each post, you need to find hashtags that are related to your content and include them in your post.

Sometimes I use them in a description and other times I use them as a first comment, this will help your page to grow faster and hence generating more traffic to your affiliate link.

hashtag

8) Engage with Your Audience Daily

This is huge, your page is new, you have few followers and get few comments, do your best to answer all of them.

People like to feel that their comment is heard, so while you do not get a lot of traffic yet, try to get involved with your audience daily, like their comments and respond to their questions, this will take make Instagram suggest your page to more users and your page will increase rapidly.

9) Comment on bigger pages

If you don’t have a lot of traction on your own page, find accounts that are similar to yours but bigger, all you need to do is to engage with their audience. 

Many big accounts don’t have the time to answer all of the questions underneath their posts so this is a chance for YOU to provide some value there and get some traction.

10) Do this every day

Most people post once per week and they ask themselves why their pages are not growing, if you want to get a lot of traffic and make sales every day you need to start doing this every day.

If this is a brand new page, I will suggest posting something 5 to 10 times a day, then use the rest of the time to interact with all people who are engaging with your content.

Final word

That is it, those are 10 ways to drive traffic to your affiliate link through Instagram for free. I hope these tips help you with your Instagram Accounts today.

10 WAYS TO MAKE MONEY FROM BLOGGING IN 2021

Do you want to start a blog or you have a new blog and wondering how are you going to make money from it? Then you are in luck because today I am going to share with you 10 ways to make money from blogging in 2021.

Before we start with ways you can make money from blogging, let start with the elephant in the room, can you make real money from blogging?

Can you make a living blogging?

My answer is a big yes, you absolutely can make a living blogging and it can be very lucrative. However, the harsh truth is that most bloggers (according to statistics more than 90%) do not make any money , and some make few dollars here and there and very few make a lot of money.

10 ways to make money from blogging in 2021.

10 ways to make money from blogging in 2021.

1. Display ads

This is the easiest way to make money from your blog, all you need is to start a blog and put some content in it, then you apply to Ad Display networks like Google Adsense or Media.net, those networks will give you a code and you will put that code on your blog.

What will happen is that ads will be displayed on your blog, your visitors will see the ads and if they click on them you will get paid.

The best part of this method is that you do not need to sell anything, just get the code, put it on your blog, and keep creating content, as the amount of visitors increases you will make more money.

The other side of the coin is that this is the least profitable method to make money from your blog, if businesses can pay ad display network money for a click on your blog, it means they are making a lot more money, you can do the same.

After saying that I still make money from Adsense on two of my niche sites.

adsense

Banner Advertisements.

Depending on your niche, you can offer banner advertising on your blog, you can offer directly from your blog, many companies will pay you good money to have their banners on your blog, depending on the size of the banner and the amount of traffic your blog gets you can charge your customers accordingly.

I do not do this myself but most of the people I know make on average $1 for 1000 views, again depending on the amount and quality of your traffic you can decide how much to charge.

Some people charge per week, others charge per month, again this will depend on you.

Affiliate marketing.

For me, this is the best way to make money from your blog especially if you are a beginner, all you need to do is to find affiliate products in your niche, most product owners will have advertising material ready for you to use them.

Also, you will get a special affiliate link, all you need to do is to place some banners in your blog and use some of those links in your blog posts, when people click on those links and buy something you will get paid.

I get paid every day by just doing that, the proof is in this post, you will be able to see some links or banners if you click and buy anything from one of those links I might get paid.

This is one of my recent payments from Clickfunnels.

clickfunnels

Native Advertising.

Have you been to a blog and you see links to other blogs or pages? this is what we call native advertising, these type of ads are very popular, and many bloggers I know they make a log of money from it.

The only problem with this is that you need to have a certain number of page view or visitors per month, this makes impossible for new bloggers to get in.

I never tried this method myself because as I said my niches sites do not reach that amount of traffic and those that reach that amount of traffic, I monetize them using affiliate marketing.

Paid reviews/Sponsored posts.

This is the method that companies pay you an amount of money to post an article to your blog, I used to charge $20 per post in my blogs.

This method is simple, they write an article, they put some links (2 or 3 ) in the article, they send payment via Paypal, you post the article and send them the proof.

In the early days, this can be very helpful since you won’t be making a lot of money from other monetizing methods.

Sell Your Own Digital Products. 

You can create your own digital products and sell them on your blog. Do not overcomplicate this, you can create a pdf on how to do something and sell it on your blog.

I once created a simple pdf on how to create a blog and I was selling it for $9.95, It was solid information and I make very good cash from it.

You can do the same in your niche and make some money from it.

Launch an Online Course.

When you blog for some time and people start to like your content there is a chance that they will like what you have to teach them.

This is not a simple pdf, this is a full course and I prefer to be a video course,  where you will teach your audience, just be you, and you will be fine.

I do not have my own course yet but I am planning to release one before the end of this year, finger closed.

Offer Online consulting.

When you show that you know what you talk about, you can offer online consulting in your blog, people will pay you a lot of money just to have someone to consult.

The good thing about online consulting you can charge between $1000 and $5000 per consulting customer, this can be profitable you do not need many customers to reach 6 figures online.

Start Online Mastermind.

A mastermind is a small group of people who meets at a certain period to discuss a common issue, what you can do here is to find people who are willing to pay you a certain amount of money, let say $97 per month and you can have a meeting with them via a webinar o zoom one per week where you will be able to share with them your wisdom and knowledge, they can ask you questions.

If you have 20 members in your mastermind you can make around $2000 just working one or two hours per week.

Sell Your Blog

Most people do not this, but actually, you can sell your blog and get a lot of money from it, I know people who sold their blog for more than $100,000 after blogging for 10 months.

I never sold any of my blogs but a few years ago a girl from Miami wanted to buy my blog about weight loss, I refused to sell, since then no one has approached me about buying any of my blogs and I never tried to sell.

The rule of thumb is that you sell your blog for at least 10 times the amount of money you are making from it per month.

Let say you have a blog that makes you on average $1000 per month, you can sell it for $10000 or more, the best site to sell your niche site is https://flippa.com/.

Final words

Those are 10 ways to make money from blogging in 2021 if you have a blog keep blogging, and if you do not have a blog you can start one, here are the instructions on how to start an affiliate marketing blog.

5 Ways You Waste Time Every Day

When I talk to people about why their online business is stalling the most common reason is that they do not have time due to having a full-time job, having to take care of their kids and family, etc.

In this post, I am going to show you 5 ways you waste time every day and you can regain some of that time and dedicate it to your business.

Check out the most common five ways you waste time every day. Do you find yourself doing any of them? You’ll also find some time management strategies.

They can help you become more efficient and productive and be able to get the most out of your day. Let’s get started.

5 of the Biggest Timewasters of Your Day

5 Ways You Waste Time Every Day

Even if you’re one of the more dedicated and organized people out there, you still waste time. Whether you work from home or in the office, we’re all guilty of getting distracted and losing focus. It may not be deliberate and you probably don’t even realize you’re doing it until it’s too late.

Here are five ways you waste time every day. See if you can relate.

1.      Social Media/Emails/Texts

It’s become a vital part of our lives. But the world won’t stop turning if you don’t look at your social media for 15 minutes.

Another big distraction is hearing that too familiar ‘ding’ that comes with a new email or text message. It prevents you from finishing the task at hand because you keep looking at your phone every five minutes.

Picture this scenario: you’re in the middle of work when your phone beeps. You reach for your phone to see your incoming message. So, you go from message to email to Facebook to Instagram. Then, when you’re done, you notice that 20 minutes have gone by.

Research shows that each time you get distracted, even for a couple of minutes, your brain needs more than 20 minutes to refocus. Imagine how much wasted time that amounts to at the end of the day!

The Fix: Avoid randomly checking social media, emails, or texts. Instead, set up a certain time during your day for doing just that. In the meantime, turn off any notifications or mute your phone.

2.      Organizing and Preparing

You’re probably wondering: how is this a time-waster? But too often we fall down the rabbit hole of ‘organizing’ our day. Sometimes, we take too far that we actually run out of time to do any of the things on our list.

The Fix: Find an online planner and to-do-list. Then, pick one day out of the week where you plan out the whole seven days in advance. Schedule work-related projects, meetings, and deadlines. You can also include a workout schedule and get-togethers with friends.

3.      Multitasking

Multitasking: another thing that we do to trick ourselves into believing we’re being productive. Yet, the sad truth is, multitasking wastes a ton of time.

It’s counter-productive when your attention is divided among several tasks at once. In other words, it’s just another form of distraction.

The Fix: It’s simple. Just put all your attention and focus on one task at a time. When you’re done, move on to the next task, and so on.

4.      Checking the News

In this day and age, it seems something is happening in the news every five minutes. So, it’s easy to use the news as an excuse for procrastination. After all, we all want to be in the loop when it comes to politics, sports, and local news.

The Fix: Force yourself to stay away from checking news updates every half hour. You can use sheer self-discipline, or you can use a site blocker.

One great example is the Stay Focused Chrome app. It helps you ‘hide’ certain websites for, say, 45 minutes. Then, tell the app you want to spend 20 minutes on the so-and-so website. After the 20 minutes are done, the app will block you again until your next break.

5.      Errands and Chores

The problem isn’t with the errands or chores themselves; it’s when you do them. Running errands during rush hour is one of the biggest time wasters ever!

Doing chores is another. You might be sitting at your desk, working away when you notice a dusty shelf or a cluttered drawer. So, you do the responsible thing and start dusting and decluttering.

You tell yourself that it’ll only take five minutes. Then, when you’re done cleaning the entire room/office, the day is over! And you still haven’t finished what you’re initially working on.

The Fix: Plan your errands ahead when you know there’ll be less traffic. Also, try to do your shopping when you know the stores won’t be as crowded and they’re in their least peak hours.

As for chores, set up one or two days during the week when you do all the dusting, cleaning, and decluttering. This way, even if you see catches your attention, you can push back in your mind and wait until ‘chore day’ rolls around.

A Final Note

We all get the same amount of time each day: 86,2400 seconds, 1,440 minutes, or 24 hours. It’s up to you to figure out how you’re going to spend that time. Sadly, many of us spend our days doing things that don’t really add any value to our lives—or anyone else’s for that matter.

The good news is you can train yourself to focus more and have fewer distractions. Make a conscious effort to add purpose and value to your life and follow through. You’ll soon notice you’re getting more done during your day than ever before!

 

How to Choose a Web Hosting Service According to Your Budget

Choosing a web hosting service is one of the most important decisions you will make as an online entrepreneur. Having bad and slow hosting can kill your business, in this article, I am going to give you some tips when it comes to choosing a web hosting service according to your budget.

When I say according to your budget, I mean that it depends on how much money do you want to invest in the web hosting service.

If you´re broke or you just to test things out before becoming serious

If you’re a stone-cold broke or you´re just testing your ideas, I will recommend going with Hostgator, to be honest with you this is not one of the best web hosting services on the internet, but they are reliable and they have been in business for a long time.

One of the things I like about Hostgator is that you can pay with PayPal (which is a huge relief for people who are coming from most of the third world countries), it is relatively cheap, it is less than 12 dollars per month.

As I said their service is quite basic but they give you enough tools to build your first blog/website if you’re just starting out or broke go with Hostgator.

hostgator

Serious about online business

If you have a serious online business or you have a little bit more money to invest I will recommend going with Sitegroud.

Siteground is one of the best web hosting companies today, you will have the best technical support, you get free SSL with them, their servers are faster than most hosting services.

If do you have a growing online business or blog, this is the hosting service you should choose, I don´t recommend it for people who are testing out because in order to pay monthly you will need to pay a set fee which is an extra cost and also I don’t recommend for people who don’t have credit/debit card because Siteground does not have the PayPal option.

If you’re serious about growing your online business, you should check out Siteground.

Siteground

WPX Hosting

I hosted my blogs in many hosting companies over the years, for me, Wpxhosting is the best, they have the fastest web servers, actually one of the best bloggers around Mattew Woodward did a test where he tested all major Webhosting companies, WPX Hosting came first in almost all major factor like speed, support, memory, and space.

They offer you a free backup to all your websites, they scan your websites for you and if they find any virus or malware, they remove them for you for free.

They can move your websites from other hosting companies to Wpxhosting for free, they can configure your blog/website for you, they can even install it for you if you don’t know-how.

These guys are amazing, I don’t have enough words to describe how great they are. For me, the most impressive thing I found out about them is their ability to respond to any message I send them in less than 5 seconds each time I contact them.

Their prices start at $24.99 for 5 websites, it may seem a little bit high for some, but I can assure you that it worth the investment.

How to choose a Web hosting service according to your budget

For me, those will be the three web hosting companies I will recommend you to choose if you are broke and no money to invest or just testing out, go with Hostgator and when you make some money upgrade to Siteground.

If you have some money to invest starting with Siteground and when you start having a lot of traffic, change your web hosting to WPX Hosting.

If do you want the best web hosting service and you have some money to invest, please go with Wpxhosting.
