Personally, I would recommend you to go with the Amazon affiliate program. It’s very convenient for users by referring them to a trusted site where they can immediately purchase products through your advertisement. Apart from that, most of the brand or company has some sort of affiliate program, like ShareASale Affiliates, Amazon Associates, eBay Partners, Shopify Affiliate Program, and Clickbank among many other great companies.

So you can make money when your audience actually clicks on your link. The brand list name just I mentioned above can be more and more than you imagine, and they all have affiliate programs. The other places I would check would be CJ.com, LinkShare.com, Amazon Associates, PartnetStack, and ImpactRadius.com.

They’re are like the affiliate networks or affiliate hub that has all the different brands inside. So you can find the most famous affiliate products or whatever inside those networks (like Target & Wal-Marts).

1. Create An Amazon Affiliate Account: By filling in some basic details like – Account InformationWebsite & Mobile App ListProfile Start Using Associates Central.

2. Video Editing Software: First of all, you need a good video editor and there are lots of different video editing software programs on the market these days. If you’re just starting out then check out the below video, which I uploaded a couple of months ago, where you’ll not find any watermark during the video, also you can export in “1080P & 4K HD” output at free of cost.

3. Quality Camera: If you want to make your own real-life footage, you’ll need to invest in a digital camera or you can use your mobile phone. It must have at least the quality to shoot 4k footage because these days you no YouTuber compromises with their video quality. If your budget is good enough then an iPhone camera can do a good job, especially if you have one of the latest models.

Now we discuss some important tips for making great YouTube Content:

4. Make Product Relatable Video You Are Selling. There’s no point making a video about the latest wireless earbuds you’re trying to sell Canon DSLR. The people viewing your videos may show interest in buying the same product through your link – so give them something relatable that they might enjoy.

It isn’t necessary that you’ll only have to make videos related to a product for affiliate marketing. You can choose any niche that you like or even the Vlogs, where the equipment you just used within it, can mention those under the description page. If you have powerful content, people would happy to follow you and buy the same equipment that you are using.

5. Don’t Create Over-Saturated Content. If you don’t have much information about the product, that’s fine; don’t need to repeat the same information again. So, it’s better to engage with your audience and ensure them to reply in every possible way so that viewers will have faith in you.

6. Recommend Viewers To Buy Product By Your Affiliate Links: You can place links in your description page/box, so don’t forget to mention the same in your video or even put annotations in your videos for your viewers to click. If you’re already getting organic traffic then people will go to your page to check out the equipment you are using. For a newbie, the best way is to appear genuine and honest review of the product.

Legal Disclaimers

Well, let me tell you about affiliate link legal disclaimers that if one is buying any product from your affiliate link then it must have a legal source and why have you linked those on your website? For all this information, you have to inform your viewers first.

But the good thing is that as of now YouTube hasn’t come out saying you need to do that. Basically, you just link your products and your viewers should know what to do then. Since you’re creating any sort of video content, all you want is a simple text link. Just like others, Amazon provides a URL shortened version of their affiliate links to make it easier to link to.

Affiliate Marketing On YouTube - Linking Products


In the end, I would advise you to be honest, be consistent, keep your goals realistic, and share quality information on the products you feature. Because you’ll earn the respect of viewers by offering them information of value with links to well-reviewed products, you’ll be on your way to becoming a successful YouTube Affiliate Marketer.

Keep shooting good content, and your customers will return to see what you’re recommending next because your audiences will always appreciate quality.
