Hey my friend! 🙂
My name is Jason and if this your first time visiting my website, I just want to say a very special WELCOME to my Affiliate Marketing For Teachers article!
Chances are you’re a teacher who is interested in learning and making passive income with affiliate marketing, right?
Well, if so, then you are on the right page because I will help you get started with affiliate marketing and hopefully, you’ll use this knowledge to build an online business which you can use to earn passive income from home – just as I am able to.
I am an experienced affiliate marketer since 2014 who specializes in getting 100% Free organic traffic to my websites.
This is known as search engine optimization or SEO for short.
It’s something that I absolutely love to do, and enjoy teaching others how to do the same.
The first place I started learning this type of affiliate marketing was from this affiliate marketing community.
Without their help, I am not sure that I would be able to know so much about creating content and getting them to rank in the search engines.
As a teacher, you will also want to learn the essential skill of SEO so that you can attract targeted traffic to your website, or any other platform of your choice.
This way, you will be able to convert those traffic into sales.
Why Affiliate Marketing?
Well, you should already know that affiliate marketing is one of the best and easiest online business models that you can get started with.
It has the potential to earn a great deal of passive income for a lifetime and it doesn’t require a lot of startup money.
Plus, the best thing about it is that there’s no need for you to sell anything!
You don’t need to purchase inventory like what you’ll normally have to do if you were selling physical products on Amazon, or any other e-commerce platform.
And check this out: you don’t need to create a product, nor is there any overhead costs associated with it.
All you have to do is focus on creating and promoting helpful, engaging content which solves someone else’s problem.
You then recommend relevant products or services to those same people using your affiliate links.
Whenever time someone clicks on your affiliate link and makes a purchase, you will earn a commission.
I like to use this image to illustrate the process…take a look…
This is one of the most logical and ethical ways to earn income online because, as you can see, it’s a win-win situation for both parties.
Put it simply: You are providing value to someone and getting money in return.
Can Teachers Become Successful Doing Affiliate Marketing?
YES, of course teachers can become very successful doing affiliate marketing.
This is true, especially if you are genuinely passionate about teaching others and solving their problems.
As a matter of fact, I think that teachers have an advantage when it comes to doing affiliate marketing.
You are already experienced with writing and creating content for your students, so this won’t be a problem.
The difference with affiliate marketing is that you are not just writing for a small number of people…
You are actually creating content for an online audience which has the potential to reach millions of people across the world!
This is a high income skill that is essential for affiliate success.
So, yes, I would say it’s an excellent…or even a perfect business for you to pursue and become successful with.
And…did a mention that you’ll be your own boss?
Now who wouldn’t want that?
If you have not yet experienced how it feels like to be your own boss, then I highly recommend you give it a go!
Imagine spending more time with your loved ones and going on a vacation (or wherever) whenever time you want to?
Gone will be the days when you have to wait for a vacation approval from your “superior”.
It is one of the best feelings ever.
As an example, my affiliate marketing colleague, Nathaniell from the “One More Cup Of Coffee” website is a past teacher who was teaching English Language In China before he decided to quit that job and focus entirely on affiliate marketing.
He is now a full time affiliate marketer earning upwards of $10K per month, and having some of the best times in his life.
This is all thanks to having his very own affiliate marketing online business.
He is one of those great affiliate marketers that I have grown to respect and trust over the years.
Both myself and Nathaniell started our affiliate marketing journey over at the same affiliate marketing community which I mentioned to you earlier.
My advice: if you truly want to make the transition from a teacher to an affiliate marketer, then today is the day you’ll want to take MASSIVE ACTION.
I will share THIS exact community with you so that you can get access to the same training, tools, and support that we use to propel our business.
You truly don’t want to miss out on this life changing opportunity so make sure to keep reading.
There are many other people from across the world who have taken the training and are getting positive financial results based on the time, effort, and focus they put into their business.
I believe that once you possess the right mentality and is willing to learn what they teach, as you apply yourself, you can also do great.
Where To Find Affiliate Programs To Promote As A Teacher?
Now, as an affiliate marketer, finding the best and most relevant products or services to promote to your audience is important.
You can find various kinds of affiliate programs by going to Google and typing in “your niche + affiliate program”
So for example, suppose you were going to be creating content about textbooks and wanted to promote them on your website.
All you would have to do is go to Google and type in “text book + affiliate program”
This would bring up several options for you to filter through and choose from.
When you find a good one, simply sign up.
Once you get approved, you’ll be able to get access to your affiliate links and other tools to start promoting.
Another way for you to get access to affiliate programs is by joining an affiliate network such as Share-A-Sale, or Commission Junction.
These networks will have many different types of companies on the inside who will pay you commissions whenever you refer a paying consumer to them.
And the good thing is that since these companies are already vetted by these affiliate networks, you won’t have to stress if a company is safe to work with or not.
You know you’ll be in safe hands.
What Do You Need To Get Started As An Affiliate Marketer?
First of all, you are going to need a platform where you can create content from and share it with an audience.
For this, I recommend having your own website.
Having a Youtube channel is also a great idea, especially if you are comfortable showing your face on camera.
Whichever platform you choose is really up to you. There is no right or wrong choice here.
You can even chose to do both, but I would suggest you first become a master at one, then move on the next one to expand your reach.
Social media platforms such as FB and Twitter are also useful, so it’s a good idea to connect them to your website for easy sharing whenever time you produce new content.
An Effective/Good Keyword Tool
You will need a KEYWORD RESEARCH TOOL to get important data on keywords before you create any content.
You’ll need to know information such as:
- The number of people searching for the keyword per month (I have learned that 100 or more people is a good number to start with)
- How competitive the keyword is to rank for (meaning the number of other people trying to rank for that exact keyword)
NB: Without a keyword research tool, you will be “shooting in the dark” and wasting a lot of your own precious time so make a mental note that it’s an essential tool that you’ll need to do affiliate marketing.
The Most Vital Thing
PROPER EXPERT TRAINING: You will need to learn how to write your content, structure it, monetize it, promote it, and ensure that you provide good value and a great user experience for your audience.
That is where our affiliate marketing training community comes in.
