For the past couple of years I have heard or read about “affiliate marketing” in blogs and podcasts in both the genealogy and writing fields. I even purchased a few eBooks and watched some webinars on the topic, but quite frankly, I usually came away more questions about what exactly affiliate marketing is or how I could use it to add to my income stream as a freelance writer and instructor. Enter my friend and colleague, Thomas MacEntee, who was willing to sit down with me on several occasions to talk about affiliate marketing (which is basically being paid a commission based on a percentage of sales for advertising a product). Thomas enthusiastically told me about the success he has had over the past year earning affiliate income, and showed me ways I could succeed with it too.
And now you have an opportunity to learn from Thomas during a special Affiliate Marketing Boot Camp on Saturday, 21 November 2015.
Since I started a few months ago, I can see the returns on my investment of time and effort and have been happily putting the money I have earned thus far into a special “Genealogy Fund” account where I can save for conference purchases, trips, and other genea-addictions. When Thomas asked me if I would be willing to team up with him to help moderate this event I didn’t hesitate—my answer was “Yes!”
Thomas really is a fountain of knowledge when it comes to this stuff, and once he explained to me how affiliate marketing is so much more than just plastering a company’s logo on your blog or website with links to their products, the light bulb finally went off and I could finally see how there is an art to effective affiliate marketing (and you know, as a creative I am all about the art). The more I put into practice the tips I learned from Thomas, the more I realized how I could build affiliate marketing into my own business plan.
