I usually don’t talk about making money with a side hustle, but since YouTube decided to take away the ability of smaller channels to earn revenue from the YouTube Partner Program I thought I would share a monetization method that might help some of you. Potentially you can earn up to $100 per day or more just by taking advantage of the power of Reddit and an affiliate website.
In this article, you will learn how to rank your affiliate websites very quickly. This will help you determine whether or not you’ve chosen a good affiliate campaign and if it works for your niche, you can use this method to scale up your earnings eventually making $100 or more each and every day.
The very first thing you’re going to want to do is to visit Reddit and create a brand-new profile for the site. Be sure to use an email address you’ve never used before and customize your user profile (don’t forget to add a photo). When creating your username try to work in a keyword for whatever niche you will be targeting. For example, if you were targeting say bedbugs, you could mean yourself bedbugkiller or something along those lines.
Once you’ve created your profile return to the Reddit homepage and create a new text post. It will then take you to a page where you can submit your post. You want to write a quick little description of a post or video that you plan on sharing.
Using the bedbug based user profile we selected earlier, we are going to attempt to target the long tail keyword of “natural ways to kill bedbugs fast” so we will have to work that into our Reddit post title. Next, you want to fill out your text description with a lot of helpful details. You don’t want to just spam your information here. You actually need to make sure you are providing something useful for other Reddit readers and not just copying and pasting something from another website. Original content is important.
Try to shoot for having at least 100 words in your post covering the topic in your title. An easy way to accomplish this is to just summarize the video or article you plan on sharing in your own words. Once you’ve written your summary at the end of your post you want to link to your website or video but be sure to include the keywords you are targeting. You can do this like this “There are many more tips you can find on the [Natural ways to kill bedbugs fast blog] (https://www.websiteaddress)
The benefit of using Reddit like this for your brand-new affiliate site is it helps your website get indexed and get ranked for those long tail keywords that you try this method on.
You don’t want to post this to an actual Reddit. Instead, you want to click post to my profile before you hit submit.
Next, you want to build links going to your newly created Reddit profile as well as the post that you just created. You can either do this manually if you know how or head over to a site like Fiverr and pay someone 5 or 10 bucks to put out social bookmarking links for you.
Because it is Reddit (a social media site) you can go a little heavy with the link building without too much worry. I suggest a minimum of 40 links, but can go as high as a few hundred without worry. Just be sure to work in keywords related to your niche you want to rank for as well as divide the links up by posting half of them to your newly created account and the other half to your Reddit post.
Your Reddit post and profile will rank very quickly. Since Reddit is considered an authority site link juice will then pass on to the affiliate website you have linked to in your post allowing it to potentially gain a very high rank for the long tail keywords you have chosen.
Done correctly, which means making sure your post is well-written and contains a good amount of long tail keywords related to your niche, you can potentially earn $100 a day or more with this method. That’s pretty good money from affiliate marketing in 2018 without doing much work.
Best of luck and I hope it helps you make up for the loss of your YouTube Partner Program earnings loss.
Have a great day!
