Ezra Firestone of Smart Marketer has developed a 21-video Ecommerce video course that teaches potential merchants how to earn sales on their online store. You can publish these videos on your own properties with your Shopify affiliate link. Each Shopify merchant who signs up through your link will earn you a one-time, 200% commission of their first monthly Shopify account fee.


Since we’re now directing Facebook users to an external page and you can’t directly promote an affiliate link I created 2 pages with Optimize press 2.0. Both landing pages had similar title/content and a video showing the power Squarespace. I really highlighted the option to get a free 14 day trial with some big arrows and that, and the only difference is that one page had a button to start the trial directly, while the other one had an opt-in form to get their email. After getting their email, they were redirected to a third landing page which was basically the same as the one with the button so they could start their trial right away, but I had already gotten their email to contact them in the future.
We’re not going to tell you which eCommerce solution is the best for you. Each person has their own preferences. You may already have a solution in mind. Heck, you may be too lazy to try a different one. That’s fine! We support a number of integrations for eCommerce, including for PayPal, Stripe, Shopify, and more, and each of them can do the trick. But typically affiliate managers who enjoy Shopify enjoy it for one of the following reasons:
12. Exclusive Contracts: More than once, when trying to onboard an Amazon affiliate into another affiliate program, we hear this response: “Amazon is the exclusive advertiser on my sites. Moreover, they covert better.” The latter convincingly justifies the former; and I applaud a merchant who can get valuable affiliates to agree to such relationships. Class act, hands down!
Nice to read your article. There is a common question among the e-commerce sellers that is whether they can use Amazon affiliate links on facebook ads. Facebook has no problems if we use affiliate links in ads, but Amazon can disapprove it and might shut down us. We can use affiliate links inside the page posts or other page content without issue until we don’t try to boost those posts. For running ads and getting affiliate commission, what others do is send advertising traffic to a landing page on where people can click to buy the product on Amazon and that second click uses an affiliate link. That’s the safest way to go about this.
The term affiliate marketing as it applies to Youtube is the creation of video content that contains affiliate links in the video or the description of the video. An affiliate link is a link that leads directly to a product or website, that allows the viewer who clicked it to buy the product or sign up to a subscription ect. For every person that makes a purchase through your affiliate link, you can earn "commission" or a certain percentage of the profit off each sale. It might sound tricky at first, but really the affiliate link are the easiest part, it's getting people to click on them that's hard. Really the only way is to try and drive as much traffic to your videos as possible by creating quality content and promoting yourself right. Creating content that is designed for your affiliate links rather than jamming them down your audience's throats will likely get you a lot more clicks than the other way around.
Our standard payment terms require advertisers to review and close invoices by the end of the calendar month once the invoice is posted to them. Payment is due to Rakuten Marketing Affiliate Network 30 days after the invoice date. For example, commissions earned during the month of October (which are invoiced in early November) would be authorized by the advertiser by November 30th with payment due to Rakuten Affiliate Network by December 30th. Publishers would then be issued payments by Rakuten Affiliate Network in the following week.
In other words, you might have to pay higher commissions to get good affiliates up front. This strategy is an important aspect of cultivating the best affiliate program because you’ll make up for that cost through the lifetime value of each customer. Please note that while I certainly would recommend offering high commission rates, you still need to make a profit on your products so make sure to do your math and arrange your budget accordingly.
This is amazing news as so many of us spend most of our weekly shopping routines inside a Walmart super-center. They truly have everything you need and thankfully over the past few years they have improved the products being carried. Along with improving their in-store merchandise, the great thing is that they enhanced their online store to include everything you see in stores today.
Facebook Groups allow people to unite around a common cause, discuss issues, and share relevant content. As the previous owner of a large Facebook group, 40,000+ members, I got tremendous value from it. For starters, I controlled group activities and announcements, which were critical to my affiliate marketing strategies. While a Facebook page can be an asset, a Facebook group can be just as valuable and easier to grow. Additionally, there are eleven ways you can make money from Facebook groups.
I know, too many posts, but something I can’t stand is Word Press. I had a word press site some time ago and I had it completely automated. But then one of the plugins quit working and I never could get the creator to continue updating it. It made me feel like I really had no control over the theme, and because of that it completely ruined my site and I had to abandon it, it was a vlog, automated to pull in YouTube channels of whatever channel I wanted, it was the coolest, but I had no control over it.

Facebook Ads allow individuals and businesses to run paid ads on Facebook. To run ads, you need a Facebook page. Before using ads, you’ll want to understand Facebook’s policies. Affiliate links, redirects, and suspicious sites/landing pages get many people suspended and banned from using ads and even Facebook. Facebook will review an advertisement before approving or declining it.

If you’re running WordPress, I use a plugin called Thirsty Affiliates to cloak, manage, and track my affiliate links (you have to pay Thirsty Affiliates for their add-ons if you want extra features). The free version is still good… just install the plugin and find the “Affiliate Links” tab on the left of your dashboard. Add the link name and destination URL, save it, then copy the cloaked version of the URL so you can add it to your Youtube video annotations.

As Walmart’s recent partnership with Google demonstrates, we’re sure they will work to change that. Right now, however, shoppers know that while browsing, they can likely find the item at a cheaper price at their nearest physical Walmart–of which there are over 4,000 in the US, a clear case of their status as the biggest brick-and-mortar retailer in the world working against them online.
