Passive income is a millennial dream that most people, young or old, crave for. Who wouldn’t right? To be able to make money while you sleep and get rid of the boring 9 to 5 job. The good news is it is no longer classified as a dream. I mean it! Check out our article below for the full guide on how you can start making money immediately from Affiliate marketing.
Checklist: Do you Have What it Takes?
We have already outlined what Affiliate marketing is in our article here. However, you might have decided that you need to start earning passive income but not sure what it takes.
To see whether you are cut out for an Affiliate marketing role we have prepared for you a checklist that lets you see whether you have the criteria to make it in this role.
Let’s start with your background. You might see the marketing in Affiliate marketing and think this is not for you if you have no experience in this subject. Well, you’d be pleased to know that most Affiliate marketers have absolutely no background in marketing. What you do need is to be acquainted with basic communication tools such as emails and social media. You will be using these tools to attract and inform your network of traders and you need to be able to make full use of these tools to gain credibility and keep in touch with your followers.
You also need to be keen to communicate all you know about the trading industry and about the broker you are promoting so you need to be sociable and not afraid to communicate with strangers. While there are several ways you can do these without having the limelight on you, being comfortable in front of a camera and filming and editing Youtube or Vimeo videos does help as it increases your credibility as your followers put a face to a name.
Goes without saying but you also need to have knowledge in trading to be able to recommend your broker to your network. People respond better to influencers who have firsthand experience of the industry and what it entails and the same goes for Affiliate marketing in the trading industry.

1. Create Amazing Content That Will Get Them Interested.
By content, we mean anything that you need to communicate with potential traders. Whether it is video or in-depth articles or bite-sized information or Instagram stories, make sure it is relevant, interesting and most of all credible. Your traders need to be able to believe that you are an expert to look up to and follow.

How to Keep, Grow and Engage your Followers
Attracting followers is an important step in being a successful Affiliate marketer. However, so is keeping these followers and attracting new ones!
To stay on top of your network, you need to make sure you do the below:
1. Keep Improving
As time goes by, some content you might have posted might now be expired. Make sure you update it! Also, you might need to source new media or tools as the online marketing sphere keeps changing almost daily. Make sure you find the time to learn new innovative ways you can keep attracting new followers such as editing video clips, taking impressive photos as well as trying out new techniques and subjects in the trading industry.
2. Analyse Your Performance
In marketing, data is very important. This does not mean you have to draw up boring charts and numbers to attract new customers. Rather, you need to know who your network is as well as learn what is working and what isn’t. Analysing the demographics of your network can help you create content that is more in line with who is following you and so will keep them interested. Being aware of what type of content is attracting most followers and what type of content is irrelevant is key in making sure you gain more popularity and hence earn more passive income.
