A publisher is an individual or company that promotes an advertiser’s product or service in exchange for earning a commission. Advertisers contractually agree to work with a publisher, then provide the publisher with creative – in the form of links, banner or text ads or even unique phone numbers – that the publisher incorporates into their website.
For mobile users, the videos that begin playing as they appear on the screen ‘will have been downloaded in advance when the device was connected to WiFi’. This means, basically, that Facebook Video Ads will not consume data – even if the user isn’t connected to WiFi at the time of playback.
Recently there was an update to WhatsApp’s Terms and Conditions stating they may sell the data to FaceBook which was heavily criticized. Only Twitter Makes Money selling data so far and that too via a SaaS platform by appointing Resellers.
I searched on Google to find a way to make money as an affiliate marketer. This website is well-constructed and you spoke very clearly. You laid the foundation down for most people to understand, if they have basic reading skills. I never knew how to create a landing page until I came on this site. A whole lot is what I’m learning from this website of yours. Great Job!
Finally, once your site is ready, it’s time to create content for it. The content you create must be relevant to your niche but also interesting and engaging enough to keep your audience coming back. You should also ensure the site content is search engine-friendly. More details about content creation in Step 4.
Second, powerful as the Facebook video ads can reach a specific group, however, the video ads function is only available in the US. Therefore the maximum amount of users it can reach is around 140 million.
You don’t need a $47 eBook, there are no shortcuts. It’s a lot of hard work, learning, adjusting to the changing landscape, and lots of time. I just partnered with 2 other affiliates and launched a site in March, and will be marketing heavily for 9 months to be ready for this year’s holiday shopping season.
According to Sheryl Sandberg, 1.5 million small and medium-sized businesses shared videos on Facebook in September of 2015. “Some likely paid to turn those videos into ads to get more views. And considering average ad revenue per user in the US shot up 50% this year, the video ad strategy is working,” says TechCrunch.
Are you referring to the $25 cap on Amazon.co.uk products? If so, simply stick to product price ranges where you won’t exceed that cap and that way you get the max affiliate commission / sale price possible.
GREAT POST SEAN, I AM VERY ENTHUSIASTIC ABOUT AFFFILIATE MARKETING. I HAVE READ A COUPLE OF ARTICLES ABOUT IT INCLUDING YOURS. THE PROBLEM I HAVE IS I DONT HAVE A WEBSITE OR A BLOG. AM ,HOWEVER, INTERESTED IN GETING ONE , BUT IS IT REALLY ADVISABLE TO INTO THE AFFILIATE BUISNESS AS A NEW BLOGGER HAVING NOT AMASSED GOOD TRAFFIC ON THE SITE ?
… ensure that long, multi-topic pages on your site are well-structured and broken into distinct logical sections. Second, ensure that each section has an associated anchor with a descriptive name (i.e., not just “Section 2.1”), and that your page includes a “table of contents” which links to the individual anchors… you won’t see it on the results all the time — only when we think that a link to a section would be highly useful for a particular query.
I alluded to this in the previous few tips but I want to make sure you understand that each link inside one of your articles is another opportunity for a visitor to click through and make their way onto Amazon.com.
Upload the highest resolution source video available without letter or pillar boxing (No black bars). Most file types are supported. However, we recommend H.264 compression, square pixels, fixed frame rate, progressive scan, and stereo AAC audio compression at 128kbps+.
I get a lot of newer, aspiring affiliates on the Sugarrae site and when you’ve never done affiliate marketing before, all of the terms can get a little confusing. So I created this glossary of affiliate marketing terms to help newer affiliates and … Read More
I come from a quite unsuccessful background of web design/SEO. I blogged because I knew it was good for SEO, but my articles never had a purpose regarding monetization. I finally took a leap of faith and dropped my clients to figure out blogging/affiliate marketing. I was good at website speed optimization and knew hosting was the #1 factor. Looking for the best, I saw SiteGround was rated #1 in multiple Facebook polls and had a great reputation with generous affiliate commissions. So I wrote detailed tutorials on how to website speed… how to configure WordPress cache plugins, hosting reviews, and other speed-related topics. Usually near the end of a post I would say “Oh, and here’s why you should switch to SiteGround” with evidence on why they’re the best… Facebook polls, Tweets, load time improvements, etc. That’s when things got good… I never had money like this so I feel like it’s my calling to help other people overcome financial instability and create passive income through SEO and affiliate marketing.

While promoting a product to the audience never make false claim of using or benefitting from that product or service until you actually haven’t done that. Instead if you want to promote that product you can convince the consumer that why do you think he needs to buy that product and how will it be beneficial for him. This honest way of marketing will never let your name down and will make you credible among the audience.
And, first of all, read up on the deets in this piece to see how to get your affiliate marketing gig up and running. I’ve broken down this process into 5-ish actionable steps for affiliate marketing beginners.
Problem was that nobody cared. My clients didn’t stick around long enough to see my value. It became apparent to me that clients don’t know the difference between great and not so great workout programs until they’ve finished. This takes time, trust, and a considerable financial risk on the client’s part.
Freelancer – refer people to developers, designers, and other freelancers you’ve worked with and make 100% of Freelancer’s project commission for the first 90 days. I get a lot of people requesting WordPress speed optimization services… so I refer them to my developers with a freelancer affiliate link and make $125/month in passive income. You can’t use affiliate links to link to specific freelancer profiles, so I direct people to the homepage via affiliate link and give people my developer’s usernames.
I also think this is why tutorial posts are so valuable. 1) Your teaching someone a skill, and even if they choose not to use the product you suggest, it can still be very valuable information. 2) If it’s a product you personally use, then it’s easy to see why you’d recommend it – you’re a customer too!
Promote affiliate programs through article marketing. Write articles on a given product and find free places online to post them, such as review sites and article directories. Be sure to check if you are allowed to include an affiliate code link to the product you’re promoting. Some sites only allow you to link out to a non-commercial website.
While these amounts are not in the thousands, it still goes to show how a product (shown to the right audience) can have powerful results. So just imagine, what if i were a lot more active as opposed to passive?
Mr. Idema didn’t rule out that WhatsApp could show ads to users at some point but said the focus was now on connecting businesses and users. Last year, WhatsApp started sharing its user data with Facebook, a step to improve Facebook’s ad targeting and friend suggestions.
This book is just amazing, I have been reading a lot of books trying to get a better understanding of online/internet marketing so I can improve and develop the performance of my company and have better sales. In this book I have learned everything about affiliate marketing, how do they work, their benefits, their risk and other details that you should be aware when you are working with them. Another thing that I like about this book is that all the information written in it, is useful, helpful and it is there for a reason and the author made it easy to understand.
Choose affiliate items that match your niche or the content on your home business website or blog. For example, if you write about figure skating, affiliate links to motorcycles or a new set of saddlebags won’t do well.
The amount of money you spend in promoting the blog and promoting the product, does not do justice to the income made. Many people will tell you of how to go about making 100s of sites with micro-niches, etc. and you will be raking in the money. Please go ahead and try and prove me wrong. I would love to see to the contrary.
If your mailing list software allows it, you can segment interested readers onto a separate interest list, so that only people who raise their hands will receive your free informational and promotional emails.
Not all companies offer an affiliate program, of course, but for those that do offer affiliate programs, you can check their website for related information. When searching, be sure to check the company’s FAQ page if they have one.
Meanwhile, Wyzowl noted that LinkedIn was an often overlooked video advertising channel, and one respondents said delivered results. While just 38% of marketers polled posted video content on LinkedIn, 75% of them thought it to be a successful way of reaching target audiences.
What makes this topic so interesting to me is that there really is no magic bullet to presenting trust and integrity, and that’s why it’s not possible to say that affiliate marketing is either “right” or “wrong”. As you say, trust needs to be shown consistently and built up over time.
This post is super relevant. I personally see a lot of benefit with marketing affiliate products over social media. I think it can be a lot easier and profitable if the right strategies are put in place. thank you for sharing.
Link cloaking Since affiliate links can be rather obvious at times, you need to cloak your links. People will actually delete your link, when this happen, if the people go to the site a purchase something you do not get any commission for that purchase. There are free versions of online software on how to cloak your links

Thank you for sharing these great tips. I have made money from Amazon from revenue share sites like Hubpages. I am not looking to branch out and start to build my own sites to really increase my earning potential. I am sure that these tips are going to come in very handy.
This ad follows the same framework as the short copy ad above: The first half of the post copy is focused on getting you to watch the video, and the second half is focused on motivating you to click the link to download the masterclass.
Affiliate Marketing is the major earning source for all professional bloggers around the world but for newbie bloggers its a bit hard to earn from affiliate marketing. The reasons for that are lack of knowledge, lack of patience & strategy.
Hi, Thanks for the really good article. I notice in your section about text links to Amazon they open in the same window. I have trying to find out how to open them in a new window with no luck. Any ideas? Thanks.
Is it a blog or website? If it’s just a blog, I usually don’t like a homepage blogroll – I prefer an actual page telling you what the website is about (eg. for me it’s just listing all my tutorials). But ya, StudioPress is where I’d go.
5)I expanded that one article into a whole separate section within my broader website, and I used my reader’s questions to fulfill their needs, more guides, all for free and all the guides where extremely detailed and useful.
Excellent numbers! Keep up the good work 🙂 I have a quick question for you, what’s your take on Prosociate? Associate Goliath? etc. I installed Prosociate on one of my sites and imported a ton of products from Amazon. Next, I noticed I’m getting a ton of clicks, but zero conversions. Any thoughts?
What up! I’m Tom. I write tutorials on WordPress SEO and speed optimization. I also donate a good chunk of my affiliate income to good causes – in 2017 $3,000 was donated to Red Cross At Hurricane Harvey. Here’s my bio.
Another survey from VigLink offers a closer look at just how much income affiliate marketers are bringing in. According to the survey, 9% generated more than $50,000 in affiliate income in 2016. The majority, 65%, said they were making between 5% and 20% of their annual revenue from affiliate programs. The survey also showed a link between time frame and revenues. Among the publishers with the largest revenues, 60% had been utilizing affiliate-marketing strategies for five years or more.

In 1996, Jeff Bezos, CEO and founder of Amazon.com, popularized this idea as an Internet marketing strategy. Amazon.com attracts affiliates to post links to individual books for sale on Amazon.com, or for Amazon.com in general, by promising them a percentage of the profits if someone clicks on the link and then purchases books or other items. The affiliate helps make the sale, but Amazon.com does everything else: They take the order, collect the money and ship the book to the customer. With over 500,000 affiliate Web sites now participating, Amazon.com’s program is a resounding success.
Sellers usually provide their partners with appropriate monitoring panels, plus, some of them offer APIs (coming soon at LiveChat Partner Program) so that you can track your campaign’s performance via an affiliate dashboard:
Once you are cleared to promote a particular product and you understand the terms for that campaign, you look through the list of available buttons, banners, text links, etc. for that product. You choose the one that you like most and copy the code they provide for you. This code has your unique ID in it. Use this link when promoting the product.
I am a newbie in affiliate marketing and I want to have my own passive income by creating my very first website and this book has shown me a lot when it comes to affiliate marketing tips. The book has a detailed step by step guide to be a successful affiliate website but it will not show you how to create a website which is a very different topic. But overall this book has offered me important points when it comes to marketing online.
This is real informatic information. I found this one real meaningful, wow! you truly showing the way affiliate works. I agree ad monetize can be passive income theme while affiliate can be our primary hope…I read so many articles but feels like something is hidden..but found this one real insidefull. This is showing us how our 100 bug can be harvested from from small sources. Because newbies might want to give up blogging as they are not going to earn because they thought it’s one shot income source. Thanks Sean it will really encourage every new entrepreneurs.
E-commerce websites are a bit different. You can still use affiliate marketing on them, but you’re right, how well you do with affiliate marketing is often dependent on your traffic. Still, some key affiliates on a static website can still bring in some decent income. And you’re right that “if you build it they will come” no longer applies to websites anymore given the sheer number of websites on the internet. My suggestion is to get out there, take part in forums where your potential customers would hang out, comment on blogs providing useful information and do your best to get your name out there in as many ways as you can think of.
Many online companies who sell products such as shoes, web-hosting spaces, or some other service, usually offer an affiliate program. You can simply sign up for the program and get your unique tracking link. Now, whenever you are writing about their product, you can simply use this special tracking affiliate link to recommend the company’s site.
Video is the perfect medium for increasing brand awareness and pulling new people into the funnel. But don’t let the customer journey stop there – retarget video viewers with ads that feature sequential messaging to encourage them to take the next step to becoming a customer.
Some advertisers and brands with short form video might think so also, especially if they are putting the key message at the beginning. Others might disagree. That’s something we’ll be talking to advertisers more about in the near future.

Affiliate marketing is the course of making commission by promoting other people’s products or services without actually owning it. More accurately it is to get paid by the company to encourage people to buy the company’s product.
I was following someone else’s guide and they said you should have a static front page, but I feel like I would be getting more views and more clicks if I had the opposite ie; my latest blogs on the homepage. I also checked my stats and when I link to an article/review people stay longer. When I link to the home page they don’t stay as long AND a higher bounce rate. My bounce rate for the homepage is literally 3,000 in the past month. They hit that homepage and stay for around 7 minutes which means most are probably reading the static page, but then they just… leave.
Thanks Nathalie! And glad to see you came over from AONC 🙂 When done the right way I think affiliate links in context are much less intrusive and offensive than having ads on your sidebar. The average non-tech reader probably wont even know its an affiliate link anyway. So just by doing everything you’ve already been doing, you can switch out links, and probably make a nice side income!
This is also true you can not make money directly from WhatsApp. Because WhatsApp does not allow its users to earn money directly from it. But through the some Affiliate program and online money making program your can utilize your WhatsApp friends list to make money. I already use my WhatsApp friends list to makes money.
I always add an HTML table of contents to posts to make sure they are long and structured. This has been a HUGE help for me (and my readers) and there are tons of benefits: better chance of getting “jump to links” in Google (see below), increased average time on page, decreased bounce rates, and it makes it easier for readers to navigate through your content.
hi finch, looking to start in the affiliate marketing just as extra income for an engineer student who still has papers to clear, and time to invest. my comfort zone shouldnt be above 100, because i dont have any money to invest in this. So where should i start?
Although I am an “uber-experienced newbie” in the Internet Marketing world, I was an Amazon-phobic, having been only familiar (and seen some success) with ClickBank products, not venturing into anything outside CB. The low commissions and lack of knowledge on how to correctly promote the products and inner workings of their affiliate program was another deterrent in getting started.
Take note of Facebook’s recommended video specs before uploading to ensure the highest quality viewer experience. A varying format could result in poor playback or black bars if your aspect ratio is off.
The easiest and most natural context for an affiliate product something that most have these days, a blog – especially if you already have a following. If readers have come to trust you and your recommendations, they will consider purchasing a product you endorse. However, this is certainly not the only way to be successful. Options like social media, paid ads, and email marketing can help drive your affiliate marketing success.
Ever heard of Bigdata? Basically, bigdata implies to large amount of data which can be both structured or unstructured which is analyzed for statistics and usually predicts the behavior of users on internet.
Affiliate Marketplaces – ShareASale and ClickBank have thousands of merchants to choose from. It’s nice to login to 1 place and check the performance of multiple affiliates without going to each affiliate portal on their websites. Many programs aren’t part of a marketplace though.
Hi Chris I was wondering about how much time per day do you spend working your sites? I have a full time job now but am looking to supplement my income on the side for a while until I can do it full time.
Good information about affiliate marketing Carly. I’m still collecting the way to make money by joining an affilite site. Would you like to give your opinion, what is the best affiliate site according to your experience?
There is no harm in learning affiliate marketing. Maybe you could be the one who makes it and proves me wrong. If so, I shall have a lot of respect for you. But do so with care. Most of what is taught – is freely available on the Internet. Freely! You just have to be patient, and clever in seeking out the material and putting it all together. I don’t expect everyone to ‘get it’ – and this is what cons rely on, they hope you don’t get it and then con their way into making sure you are on the long but sure path of getting it – which sadly never arrives. You will be flustered, frustrated, angry and feel violated once you discover how much money you have wasted on it. For good orders sake, don’t put your hand into your savings or college funds, retirement fund.
However, if you have a favorite tool of your trade, a must-have gadget that will make your readers’ lives easier, or a high-quality recommendation that you’re sure people will be thrilled with, go ahead and offer it.
I don’t think the msgs are passed through whatsapp servers as claimed in the latest update. They did not pass in the older verdion also, they just passed through Facebook servers for analytical purpose.
Another best way earn money on WhatsApp is through link shortening services. They are many companies offering link shortening services like Shorte.st. These websites helps the users to shorten the links of web properties and for every click on shortened link will be paid. Once you get registered to this shortening service websites, where every you find any interesting videos, articles, interesting or eye catching pictures or facts whatever that can attract the people, you can shorten the link from Shorte.st and the share it among your WhatsApp contacts and groups. You will be paid for every click amount will be $ 0.1 to $5. Click from other countries like Germany, UK will get more money.
Know what sets each program apart. Affiliate programs are everywhere online, and it can be hard to tell them apart. Each program distinguishes itself by the products it sells. Some affiliate programs only require you to post links; others will ask you to pay money to learn about how to sell the product you are selling. As the latter type of affiliate, you can make commissions by getting others to pay—by bringing other marketers into the fold. Be wary, however, of any program that asks you to pay.
One thing that I do notice is that the bloggers are mostly transparent about their affiliations with the product , I wonder what’s the conversion between not mention that he/she is affiliated with the product vs. saying that he/she is affiliated with the product.
The viewer sees a muted version of the video unless he clicks on it. Thus, you need to focus its visual effect. Find a beautiful actor, design colorful graphics, start with an intriguing quote written over an attractive background, or think of another way to grasp the viewer’s attention.

I expanded my SEO blog and started writing about hosting, cache plugins, and other relevant topics… while recommending SiteGround in each tutorial. I added social proof like this poll where they were rated the #1 host. Each tutorial was super detailed and tons of people found them helpful – many generated 100 visitors/day since the great content got them ranked high.
How neat! This makes me a bit more interested in maybe starting my own blog. Maybe for the wrong reasons though. (; Plus I’d probably have to spend time building a reader base before I can start recommending them products. Hm, maybe someday… (I know, I know — “abolish someday”)
To become truly successful it will take a lot of hard work and a lot of time. The most important thing to remember is to keep producing quality content and keep being persistent. If you like what you are doing and passionate about the subject that you’re writing about money will be a side effect.
Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Pinterest and other social media marketing methods are great vehicles for “word of mouth” or viral marketing. Video marketing in particular is a great way to demonstrate your expertise via commentary, screenshots, and live demonstrations if necessary.
She proves that by moving away from “step-by-step” and into “action-by-action”, even the newest online entrepreneurs can bypass overwhelm and self-doubt, and instead generate exciting momentum as they move closer to building a life and business they love.
Expand your business. Your business is likely to do one of two things: expand or contract. That’s why you should always be striving for growth, otherwise your business will shrink and provide you with diminishing returns.
Landing pages: A unique product sales or demo page used for the purpose of increasing sales. Most of the programs that you will be promoting have many landing pages, and you can run A/B testing to see which pages convert best for you.
MY biggest struggle is knowing how to put the promotion together and having everything in place when you promote it. I would kill for a Step-by-Step hold your hand and let me show you once how to do it correctly Mapped Blueprint. I have seen lots of sales pages but when you get them from the vendor they look a lot of the times nothing like the Org sales page, have never written a sales page before and it becomes overwhelming and confusing and then totally frustrating

The company, which creates animated explainer videos, conducted a worldwide survey of marketers in December 2017, finding that YouTube and Facebook were considered the first- and second-most effective video platforms for marketing—in that order.
I’m near certain the cap is $25. If there is a cap I was just saying that you could sell items where based on your percentage of payout you don’t surpass it. So if you were getting 5% from .co.uk’s aff program then you could sell up to $500 and still get your max commission. That being said, all this info is inside the Amazon.co.uk program.
Pay Per Sale or PPS – where companies pay a percentage of all sales that are qualified. These could be a percentage which was agreed by the company and it’s affiliate. Among the most common PPS program is the Amazon Associates where a publisher can earn up to 15% depending on the products that were sold. Here’s a list of places where you can find products to promote.
I just want to remind you that you won’t make money through affiliate marketing overnight. The car below is the 1st car I have EVER purchased myself at age 29 (I was broke until then and leased from my parents). But the time committed to affiliate marketing and creating great tutorials and YouTube videos was worth it… I work for myself, I don’t have to clock in 40 hours if I don’t want to, and I collect enough passive income to live the life I want. I hope you do it too.
Of course you want affiliates with high commissions, but they should also have a solid reputation with high conversions and low reversal rates (you get $0 if people cancel after signing up). If they’re part of an affiliate marketplace like ShareASale or ClickBank you can see some numbers there. Companies likes Amazon/SiteGround are safe bets, otherwise do your research (or track your affiliate links so you can monitor their performance). Avoid affiliates with huge commissions since this probably means they’re struggling to acquire/retain customers naturally. This will hurt your numbers (specifically your conversions/reversal rates).
You don’t know after buying WhatsApp, Facebook has increased their net growth revenue in a multifolded. Facebook knows all about you even you don’t know about those information of you, sometimes you forget those small incidents. They have made a large database from WhatsApp. They are able to serve interest based advertisement now.
They also have the advantage that the merchant is often an individual rather than a company, so you can build a personal relationship with them that will increase your status as a blogger and future success as an affiliate.
If that’s all you’re aiming for, then you shouldn’t have any problems. As long as you choose a market with enough consumer interest. The poll represents mostly CPA arbitrage affiliates. To earn the big money, paid traffic is your best friend. But yes, $1000/day is a pretty standard target for CPA affs. You have to set your targets high because the business is so volatile.
Thanks so much for such a comprehensive affiliate list! I’m always looking for the best ones and even more curious how much people are able to make with their affiliates to know if they are worth my time.
The products and services you will be promoting to your audience must be relevant and good quality. Make sure you believe in them and know everything about them, because this will be crucial to you delivering the sales pitch to your audience. You need to build trust with your audience so make sure the products and services you choose to promote are trustworthy enough.
A good approach as an affiliate marketer is to create reviews. You showcase several different products of the same type on your website. For example, you could include your opinions and technical specifications on several different types of Bluetooth portable speakers. You give your opinion and list the pros and cons of each. Then you include a link for each… to buy that particular speaker. The trick is, whichever speaker your prospect chooses and buys, you make a commission.
Education occurs most often in “real life” by becoming involved and learning the details as time progresses. Although there are several books on the topic, some so-called “how-to” or “silver bullet” books instruct readers to manipulate holes in the Google algorithm, which can quickly become out of date, or suggest strategies no longer endorsed or permitted by advertisers.
Thanks… basically I have heard about successful guys making money by affiliating. This was drawing my attention always and today after reading your post you helped me to solve the case behind all of this.

This URL is used to keep track of all the traffic and sales you are making via your website or other promotional techniques. Many old-fashioned affiliate programs allow a buyer to add the email or referral details in an effort to account for affiliate sales, but this is certainly not the best way to track progress.
When promoting a product, you are also promoting the person or organization that owns the product. This should be the first thing to know before selecting the product you are promoting. You surely don’t want your clients to be unhappy after purchasing the product. Trust me; they will never come back to your site again to purchase anything! This is because you have dented your credibility. Normally, any company or website with good customer service is bound to have happy customers.
F-Secure Labs reported this week on a new WhatsApp scam that’s successfully spammed over 22,000 people. Spam seems to be as old as the Internet itself, and is both a proven nuisance AND a lucrative source of revenue for spammers. Most people don’t see what goes on behind the scenes, but spammers often employ very sophisticated schemes that can expose web surfers to more than just ads for Viagara or other “magic beans”.
Great post Leanne, it’s always great to see affiliate marketing in a concise and to the point fashion. When using analytics to track conversions, what factors do you feel are the most important to focus on for affiliate marketers? Where do you see a lot of affiliate campaigns fall flat in terms of optimizing their campaigns?
If you already have a list of at least a few hundred people and are planning to sell services like coaching, consulting, design, writing or other professional services (as in legal advice, finance, or real estate) in the short term, it’s probably best to hold off on affiliate marketing.
[…] If you do it manually you’ll need to use this WordPress plugin called Tablepress and what I do is include various columns for information about the product and in the final column I use a buy now button that people can click to see more info about the product. (Source: Entrepreneur Boost) […]
You are a big help to me. I just made my blog and started doing affiliate marketing however I am struggling on the next step. I don’t know how will make people buy through my blog. It’s frustrating you know. What you said lifted up my spirit and I wish I can see sales next month or so. Cheers!
Whatsapp CEO Jan Koum told one of his interviews that Whatsapp will concentrate only expanding, that is, they are concentrated only increasing it’s users and it’s current goal is not to make money. If you are not renewing your account with paying $1, don’t worry, it will automatically renew for you..! ( Except a few rich countries)That means Whatsapp never trying to get more revenue and it is only expanding its user base. So we can say clearly that Whatsapp is NOT making money. It is in big Loss, even it’s users are growing exponentially.

China’s WeChat is probably the best example of the vast potential that messaging apps hold. With over 900 million monthly active users, WeChat helps them do everything from messaging, buying grocery, hailing cabs, ordering online food and even offline payments at restaurants – all this without having to go to another app. These services not only provide the company incredible customer stickiness, they also create a remarkable revenue model.
Despite its early success, Facebook faces challenges on its road to video dominance. For one, YouTube, which has been the only video platform with scale for a decade until Facebook came around, will not give up easily. The platform has been fighting to keep its prized creators on YouTube, offering bonuses for anyone signing an exclusive contract. And YouTube is not the only player competing for premium video content. The overflowing bucket of TV ad dollars is too great a prize for any web platform to pass up. As I wrote earlier this month:
If you get THAT clear and believe in some product, go ahead. Your audience trusts your word. But most folks need to use or experience before they can get clear, because they have a fear: the fear of using trust. I am slowly losing that fear but still use what I promote, before I promote it.

WhatsApp uses your phone’s Internet connection (4G/3G/2G/EDGE or Wi-Fi, as available) to send and receive messages to your friends and family. You do not have to pay for every message.

When you join an Affiliate program and choose the products that you want to sell, sellers provide you with a unique affiliate code that you can use to refer traffic to the target site. Most affiliate programs will offer ready made text links, banners and other forms of creative copies whereby you only have to copy the code and place it on your website to start referring traffic. When interested visitors click on these links from your site they get redirected to the product site and if they purchase a product or subscribe to a service you as the referrer make a commission.
Thinking of starting a site now to try this out. I have one question regarding the Amazon Affiliate program which I think seems really attractive. Not sure if anyone here can answer it, but I have not been able to find the answer googling.
I made cold calls to lists of expired clients, I went to lululemon (a clothing store) and gave free stretching workshops, I walked around the neighbourhood handing out flyers, I performed endless free sessions, I bought every manual on selling and marketing personal trainer services I could find, and I took on clients from deal of the day websites like Groupon. None of it worked!
