We love monetizing our channel with affiliate links because it means we get to keep our YouTube videos free, while being able to be compensated for our time.

We also love affiliate marketing because it’s a very passive business model. As Sarah said, even if she had a car accident and could no longer keep uploading videos, this channel would continue to make money even as she was bedridden and recovering. Having this passive source of income is a great form of income diversification.

Usually on this channel, we talk about ecommerce businesses (dropshipping, Amazon FBA) however we’ve had a lot of people ask us about affiliate marketing as they know that is how we monetize our channel. On this YouTube channel, we make $500 a day ($15,000 a month) passive with affiliate marketing. We earn it by promoting the following 3 products:

* Shopify – a program that makes creating ecommerce stores easy for beginners.
* iPage – a low-cost web hosting platform that people can use to host their ecommerce WordPress stores with.
* Jungle Scout – an app that lets you identify and track top-selling products on Amazon.

Some days we make more than $500 a day, other times we make less, but on average it works out to be about $500 a day.

    Hello Sarah

    First, thank you for the valuable information you have given us. I have seen many of your videos

    I would like your inquiry if possible. I have $ 3000 and would like you to tip.
    What are the best platforms I can work with: Amazon seller, Merch by Amazon or Shopify ?? Thanks for time.

    Great tutorial. I want to start an affiliate programa, I do not have followers in social media except few family members. Do you have any advice on how build a blog to attract audience that may buy an affiliate product? Thanks

    I'm in the process of setting up a shopify store and am currently drop shipping on ebay. Can I add the affiliate links to all of my listings? Also- how do you sign up to be an affiliate marketer and how does the company know the lead came from you?

    Excellent frame of thought, helping people being the most important. It reminds me of the book How to Win Friends and Influence People. I'm glad to see there are some good people out there still, even if they're off in New Zealand :p

    I can't thank you enough for the quality of content you are producing. I started listening to podcasts on ecommerce months ago, when I was a Teacher driving to work. Then, I found your videos and have been watching them ever since. My favorite one is the recent, "Is Drop shipping a Skam?" I applaud your wording and professionalism in the delivery of every single video. It's amazing how you answer so many comments and remain cool, even when you have answered most questions, if people would just watch the other videos, or read your feedback in the comment section. I'm glad you are not too effected by the crude comments, because you still carry on!
    I am still in the "study" phase of this process. I wanted to blog, so I purchased a domain, and started a word press site. Can't quite decide on a niche, because I have a few interests. I guess I have to look over my notes as I make some decisions before launching anything. I started writing an ebook too. Thank you again Sara. For sharing your story and expertise!
