How Online Business Owners Can Make Money With Affiliate Marketing

Diversifying your income streams is one of the main keys to succeeding in online business. When money is coming from multiple sources, you can rest easy knowing you’ll have money to pay the bills when one income stream dries up.
Affiliate marketing is sharing third-party services or products with your following and making a commission on sales. Affiliate marketing is relatively passive income. However, it’s not completely passive because you need to make partnerships and promote them to make sales and earn commissions.
Here’s what you need to know to get started:
Research partnership opportunities for products you already use
Create a list of products and services that you promote related to your brand. For example, I run a personal finance brand so the products on my list would be savings tools, budgeting resources, and other money management services.
Then, do a search to see if your favorite products and services already have an affiliate program. Sign up for the program if there is one. If there is no program, reach out to the company directly to see if they offer some sort of partnership or sponsorship opportunity.
Sign up for affiliate networks
A way to find new affiliates is through networks. Affiliate networks like Commission Junction, Flex Offers, Impact Radius, and ShareASale are a few platforms where many different affiliate programs are managed under one site. Sign up for each one to see if there are any participating affiliates on there relevant to your brand.
Put the right disclaimers on your content
Legally, content creators must disclose partnership with brands. FTC regulates what is required for the disclosure. You can learn more here. Make sure you’re following the rules. Let people know that you’ll be getting a commission or benefit if they sign up for a product or service that you’re promoting.
Develop a strategy
At first, you may sprinkle some affiliate links into your blog posts where you already talk about a product or service. The next step is getting a bit more strategic with your affiliates.
You can create launch plans to launch affiliates to your audience much like any other product. Email is a great way to bring awareness to affiliates and make commissions. People on your email list already know you and you’ve built some trust. An audience you have a rapport with will be more interested in what you have to offer.
Product reviews are another way to make some commission sales. Just make sure that you’re always properly disclosing that you’re getting a commission if customers sign up.
Affiliate marketing can be a nice compliment to your business
You don’t have to go crazy adding affiliates to your site. Your business model doesn’t have to revolve around affiliate marketing. However, affiliate marketing can be a nice addition to your business especially if you’re already a raving fan of certain products. You can earn an extra income while pointing your audience in the direction of products and services that will help them.

Details of a 'Search by image' Tool were Spotted in WhatsApp's Latest App Update.

The tool would let users take an image from the app and run it through Google It's not yet clear when the feature will be made public for all users, however  It marks the latest example of WhatsApp's efforts to crack down on fake news  By Annie Palmer For Published: 18:33 EDT, 13 March 2019 | Updated: 18:33 EDT, 13 March 2019 WhatsApp is doubling down on its efforts to fight misinformation on the app. 

The Facebook-owned messaging service is testing a new feature that helps users verify whether or not an image is real.  The 'search image' tool would let users take an image found on WhatsApp and run it through Google. Scroll down for video  WhatsApp is doubling down on its efforts to fight misinformation. The Facebook-owned messaging firm is testing a new feature that helps users verify whether or not an image is real  Part of the release notes for WhatsApp's latest update, version 2.19.73, mentioned a 'search by image' function,' according to WABetaInfo, which first spotted the tool. 

After clicking the 'search by image' button in the app, Google will tell users if a 'similar or equal' image exists on the web.  It's not yet clear when the feature will be available for all users.  The move marks the latest example of WhatsApp taking steps to curb the spread of fake news on its platform. 

Over the past several months, WhatsApp has banned bot and spam accounts, with its software capable of wiping some 2 million accounts each month.  The company said last month that it's often able to remove fake accounts before they even make it onto the platform.  'Search image' would let users take an image found on WhatsApp and run it through Google, but it's not yet clear when the tool will be released Pictured is a WhatsApp ad that ran in India Additionally, in perhaps its most sweeping move yet, WhatsApp moved to limit the number of times users can share messages with others. 

The new policy, revealed in January, limits message forwarding to up to five users.   Before the new policy, users could forward messages up to 20 times.  Last July, the Facebook-owned social media app began limiting message forwarding to up to five times for users in India, but it has since expanded the policy globally.  The company said the move was initiated to fight 'misinformation and rumors.' 

WhatsApp, which has around 1.5 billion users, has been trying to find ways to stop misuse of the app, following global concern that the platform was being used to spread fake news, manipulated photos, videos without context, and audio hoaxes, with no way to monitor their origin or full reach. Forwarding limits were put into place in India after the spread of rumors on social media led to killings and lynching attempts. 


A horrific spate of lynchings led to WhatsApp announcing limits on the forwarding of messages by its 200 million Indian users in July, 2018. More than 20 people accused of child kidnapping and other crimes in viral messages spread via the app were butchered by mobs in the preceding two months. In India people forward on WhatsApp more messages, photos, and videos, than any other country in the world, the company says.

One incident saw a 27-year-old software engineer beaten to death by a crowd of more than 2,000 people in the southern state of Karnataka after he and his friends offered chocolates to local children. Police arrested more than 48 people they said were part of a mob that killed the tech industry worker in southern India over suspicions that he and a group of friends were child abductors. Fatal attacks have also been carried out on Muslims by 'cow protection' groups roaming highways and inspecting livestock trucks. Cows are sacred to the majority Hindu community. Indian authorities did launch awareness campaigns and patrols and imposed internet blackouts in some areas but the impact was limited. One official 'rumour buster' was himself beaten to death in the north-east in June. Advertisement Share or comment on this article:
