"The Art of Finding Winning Products"
Is affiliate marketing worth it? It’s a way of earning money online without the hassle of creating or shipping products yourself. Not to mention, there's decent money to make. For example, by becoming a Spocket affiliate, it's possible to earn up to $1,080 for every customer you refer.
Curious about how it works and how to start earning with Spocket's affiliate program? Here’s everything you need to know. But first...
In short, affiliate marketing is when you promote another company’s product/service and receive a commission from that sale/sign-up. This makes it an attractive option for anyone who doesn't want to handle customer support, shipping, product creation, etc.
Typically you're given an affiliate link for customers to use; this tracks the sale and ensures you're given the appropriate credit should the customer make a purchase.
It’s 100% FREE to become a Spocket affiliate and start earning money. Just follow these easy steps to hit the ground running:
If you have questions about this, don’t worry. We’ll talk in more depth about Spocket’s commission structure and how to reach people a little later in this post.
Regular commission-based payouts aside, there are several other benefits to becoming a Spocket affiliate:
There are three commission tiers when you join Spocket’s affiliate program:
The amount you earn also hinges on the Spocket pricing plan the person you referred signs up to. There are four premium pricing plans available, as well as a freemium version:
The key to success is finding dropshippers (or potential dropshippers) who will use Spocket to order items their customers purchase via their online ecommerce store, YouTube channel, blog, social media, etc.
That said, here are a few tips on how to reach potential Spocket users:
We’ve already mentioned that Spocket provides its affiliates with several benefits, one of which is branded marketing assets. You can download Spocket’s branded templates and assets from the Spocket Resources section of your dashboard. These include videos, screenshots, banners, and logos that you can use in your online posts.
Pro Tip: Remember, 90% of information processed by the brain is visual. Images go a long way to ensuring your target audience remembers what you’re promoting.
You may already have a blog, or perhaps you’re about to start one? Either way, people need to find it, which makes SEO imperative.
To help with that, you need to share high-quality posts, use the right keywords, and be consistent in posting. Examples of high-quality content might include problem-solving articles to help new entrepreneurs, best-selling products (linking to Spocket), and so on.
Doing all these things will help generate traffic to your blog posts where you can promote Spocket and hopefully score a few sign-ups!
There are tons of dropshipping groups on Facebook and other social sites where people are actively looking for more information about finding suppliers. Needless to say, these online communities are well worth exploring.
Where possible, be sure to answer questions entrepreneurs have about finding suppliers. On the flip side, it’s also worth keeping an eye out for potential suppliers looking to partner with reliable dropshipping platforms.
In these instances, you can share Spocket referral links along with a comment like: “You can find reliable suppliers on Spocket who are US based and ship fast.” Just remember to add the referral link when you do this; otherwise, you won’t be credited with the sale!
For the uninitiated, this is a popular website where people post questions about pretty much anything and everything. Like with social media groups, you can post reliable and informative answers to relevant questions about dropshipping that include a (referral) link to more information.
We hope we’ve helped answer the question: Is affiliate marketing worth it?
