My success story — Affiliate marketing on Medium
“You earned a commission.” — I saw an email from CopyAI when I woke up in the morning.
It’s my habit* to check my email as soon as I wake up in the morning. *(Off-topic: Is it a bad habit? Let me know in the comments section below)
20 October 2022.
I saw an email from CopyAI when I woke up in the morning.
“You earned a commission”.
Here’s the full story.
Since 2018, I have been waiting for the Medium Partner Program to come to India. I was hopeless after waiting so long.
Finally, I gave up on the idea of making money from Medium and started writing just because I love to write.
Affiliate marketing refers to the business of selling other people’s products in order to earn commissions. Whenever a sale is made through your unique affiliate links, you earn commissions.
It only took me a month to earn some commissions, and I’m still earning every month.
Nevertheless, because of the engagement, I also got more traffic to my article, as well as conversions to the affiliate links.
I received hate comments when I mentioned making $200 using AI
For my mental peace, I will not reply to hate comments and will try my best to ignore them.
Every month, I still receive multiple emails regarding affiliate commissions from brands I promote on Medium and on my blog.
When you have a loyal audience, affiliate marketing is the best and easiest way to make money online.
Also, if you promote relevant and helpful products, a new audience that you get from Medium or Google, or Social Media will also convert.
Avoid promoting rubbish products solely for the sake of making money. You should provide value first and only include product links that you believe will be helpful to your audience.
I’ve made a spreadsheet of 40+ affiliate programs (I’ll update it from time to time) that you can join and start promoting to make passive income.
