When I talk to people that are new to affiliate marketing, they often think you have to have a big email list to earn affiliate income. Nothing could be further from the truth. In a recent video, I shared the easiest way to start affiliate marketing. In today’s video, I share the SECOND easiest way to start affiliate marketing (it’s also the #1 way to generate passive affiliate income with your blog – regardless of your list size)!

    Thank you, Matt! I’ve been wanting to create a resource page. This video was SO helpful!

    One question – I write about natural living and have just started to write about blogging as well. Do you think I should have two separate resource pages for my two audiences?

    I’m super excited for the contest too. Hoping for that coaching call. 🙂 Thanks for sharing such great info!

    1. Matt McWilliams says:

      Beth – do you write about BOTH on the same site?

      If so, then I would just separate the two using headings like I talk about in the video.

      If not, then yes each site would have a separate resources page.

      Hope that helps!

      Look forward to seeing your page(s) soon 🙂

      1. Beth @ Natural Mama Cafe says:

        Yes, they’re on the same site. I recently added a “start a blog” tab to my natural living site, with a total of two blogging posts so far. 🙂

        I just checked out the contest page and watched the first video. The buttons you have across the top of your resources page are great! That seems like a great way to keep it on one page but separate.

        Thanks for your help! And I’ll definitely submit the link when I’m finished.

        If you want to get really in-depth, use Google Analytics and heatmaps on the page to see where people are clicking and adjust accordingly 🙂

      3. Beth @ Natural Mama Cafe says:

        That’s a great suggestion. What do you use for heat-mapping?

        Crazy Egg but there are a few others that I hear are just as good. Sumo makes one that is cheaper and solid from what I hear.
