How to use affiliate marketing with content creation

4개월 전

Affiliate marketing for content creators.png

Everybody knows these websites that answer your questions that you had entered into google. It's the pages that poped up at the top in the google search.

These websites have often a thing in common.When you want to leave the page there is a pop-up window that opens and gives you an interesting offer. It can be something like that:

  • Get the free e-book how to do this and that
  • Free video how you can improve this
  • With this free check-list you will manage to improve your business

These are just some examples of what you can see. Why are these websites doing that?

The power of the list

The concept here is to create a content website that is optimized for search engines on a specific subject. This website gets then a lot of organic traffic from google related to the subject in question.

Once you are on such a page, the website owner wants to give you a freebie that is interesting and related to the content. His objective is that you give your e-mail address and you join his e-mail list.

Once you are on this list, he has probably prepared a sequence of automated e-mails that you will get on a regular basis. These e-mails will slowly try to build your trust and interest. The final objective is to try to bring you to buy something or to sign up somewhere. This whole process is called a funnel and it can be fully automated.

Anything can be promoted in this funnel. It can be a product, referral links, affiliate links, anything that gives a direct or indirect income.

How I try to use affiliate marketing on the blockchain

I have developed an e-mail course called the 100'000 satoshis a week strategy. It's a course where people are taught how to use faucets and micro earning websites to collect some cryptocurrencies.

I've created an opt-in page where people can sign-up to this course for free:

Feel free to join my course to see how it all plays out

I've created this page with a service provided by Leadsleap. Leadsleap offers you everything that you need to get started. You can build the opt-in page. You can create the opt-in form that you will put on this page and it comes with a complete e-mail service. It's completely free to use. I'm using the premium version because it allows me to automate my emails.

After you sign up the program sends an e-mail every day for 7 days. Each day my subscribers receive a new lesson where I present them a way to earn with faucets. In these lessons I include links to these programs that are actually referral links. If people sign up through these links, they become my referrals and I earn referral commissions paid by the website owner.

My funnel is fully automated and the target is to get new referrals for a whole set of programs.

Using content creation to drive traffic to my funnel

In order to drive traffic to this funnel, I put a link to this course at the end of all my posts that I produce on the blockchain or on services like publish0x. Each link is a kind of entrance door to my funnel. This generates new leads on a regular basis. I can also put the link to my opt-in page into forums or on social media websites. The more links I create, the more traffic I generate and the more leads I may get. This traffic is organic and doesn't cost me anything.

I believe this is a great way to build a business using the blockchain. If you are interested in using afffiliate marketing, I suggest you have a look at clicktrackprofit. This is a learning hub built by @jongolson and @blainjones. The great thing is that it teaches you affiliate marketing and also how to integrate it with blockchain technology. There are some ready made funnels that you can use and it's free to join.

Excellent I think that in some way the blockchain gives many opportunities for this type of referral entrepreneurship, however, I have a question what percentage of people join this system, they do it only once and they do not necessarily generate referrals for themselves .?

I'm not sure if I'm posing the question correctly.


There are only few people who join my course. Among them there is a certain percentage that enrolls with the programs. However if they sign up with a program like cointiply, I will get a percentage of their activity and this activity can be a long term activity. Every lead has the potential to bring in regular income. I hope this is what you asked ;-)

Hello @achim03
I wasn't really clear on the matter, but this gave me a good idea. Actually the possibilities of "redirecting traffic" and generating profits from others' subscriptions through your referral links is a great way to do it. I had not seen this way of generating automatically. Thank you for sharing this valuable information.


I believe it can be an interesting way to increase your income sources and your revenue. Building a list can be a long term business. If you manage to give interesting content to your followers they will bring you value too.

Thanks a lot for your comment!

I heard often money is on the list! :)


That's quite true ;-)

I have always been somewhat skeptical of these micro profit websites, but reading your publication, and all this about the courses, I understand that there is a whole formal structure, an element that gives seriousness to this type of activity, so I understand that it is definitely a profitable way to capitalize on resources in this digital world. I realize how useful the blog is, to make money through affiliate marketing. Thanks for socializing, this kind of utilitarian content. Best regards, friend @achim03.


Thanks a lot for your comment!

Nice technique. Perhaps you could share some thoughts on steps you take to design and build funnels. It could be mighty useful.


I will try to do that :-). Thanks for your comment


You are welcome Dear @achim03
