Have you been thinking about starting an online business or career as a digital marketer and wondering if it’s right for you? Many people earn a good full-time living by merely becoming what’s known as a super affiliate digital marketer. This article isn’t about being a super affiliate digital marketer but will help you decide if you want to get into affiliate digital marketing and then decide if you’re going to become a super affiliate digital marketer once you’ve seen some success. I should note that super affiliate digital marketers do this business as a full-time business venture. However, many of them start on a part-time basis and build their income before quitting their full-time job. For now, let’s discover if affiliate digital marketing is right for you.
Ask yourself these questions:
- Do you purchase a lot of digital or physical products for your personal use?
- Do you or would you recommend those products without getting paid to do so?
- Can you write decent product reviews?
- Are you willing to write product reviews?
- Are you ready to write blog and article content to grow traffic and build your business?
- Are you financially able to outsource the work if you aren’t prepared to do it?
These are essential questions to ask yourself. Building a business as a digital affiliate marketer can take time. One of the key things to being an excellent digital affiliate marketer is having people trust you and your recommendations. If you want to set up a digital affiliate platform and not show up publicly, it can be even harder to build a digital affiliate marketing business. If you already have a following and many people already like you, transitioning into a digital affiliate business may be relatively easy for you.
Let’s get to those questions:
Do you purchase digital or physical products? The reason this question is important is that it’s hard to recommend and sell something that you don’t have a personal interest and passion for exploring. People can generally tell if you have a personal attachment to the product or if you’re trying to make sales.
Also, when you’ve used a product personally, you’ll find it much easier to write about and recommend. Let’s say there’s a digital affiliate program that sells cats. I don’t know if one exists, but this is a great example. It offers a 50% commission for every cat you sell. Could be great money for you. However, you hate cats. How well do you think you could sell a cat to a cat lover when you hate cats? They will see right through your energy. Always have some personal knowledge of a product or make sure it’s something on your wish list.
What about making recommendations for free? Staying with our cat example, let’s say you love cats and want to find them great family homes. It’s likely that you would try and sell these cats without making any money at it. People will know that you genuinely care about the cats and finding them great family homes and would be more likely to buy on your recommendation.
You are writing product reviews. These do not have to be grand or perfect, but they do need to be decently written and make sense. If you can write great product reviews, add a little of your enthusiasm and personality into them, it’s likely you will get people to buy through your links. Plus, the more you write reviews, the better you’ll get at writing them. They do need to be honest. If there’s something you don’t like about the product, let the readers know. They will appreciate your honesty, and they may not even be concerned with the one thing you didn’t like.
Are you willing to write product reviews? Its a key component to being a great digital affiliate marketer. It would help if you wrote report reviews to promote products. If you aren’t willing to do this or can’t afford to pay someone to write reviews for you, then digital affiliate marketing may not be for you. Unless you can find another way to promote products, you will have to do some writing.
Being involved in digital affiliate marketing can be one of the easiest and fun ways to start earning a living online. However, remember, it does take time and commitment. You can start part-time, but unless you’re willing to put in the work and grow it into a full-time business, you may want to consider another avenue.
