In the case of the Hair Salon, scheduling and avoiding wait times is a big part of the business success. You want to stay busy in the whole salon, but do not want unhappy customer – those who have to wait. An online simple check-in program is a low investment solution. This sits on your web-page along with products you promote.

Speaking of products, of course, the BEST way to sell products is online. Reduces costs in inventory, storage, and customer frustration. This is accomplished with direct sales from your suppliers via drop ship to your customers. Some items may help you customer more with monthly refills; this sales activity happens without your intervention in the sale, i. e. residual income. The whole premise behind residual income is that it brings income monthly without new sales each month. (Reducing Your required time; therefore increasing profit) Some other examples are Insurance, Investment portfolios that are performing, some relationship marketing companies (IF the product is exceptional with a good pay plan); the Best in the business: Affiliate Marketing.

What is Affiliate Marketing?

Found the Perfect Gift on YOUR site
Found the Perfect Gift on YOUR site

An affiliate program is based on relationships. People follow what you blog/post about products and services you are using and trust. You write your review and link to the company website. Amazon is a great example. If a client/customer uses your link and purchases that perfect baby stroller, Amazon will pay you an affiliate fee. So…. You are talking about the great buy you found and you share. That’s it.

Now, if that content is on your website and numerous people see it, click on it and buy it, you are paid for EACH new customer. The commission is typically small but as you spread the word on trusted products and services, the number of people buying increases. As you and your companies grow in the relationship, you may offer other product reviews and continue the adventure.

Affiliate programs work! Why? It is because the recommendation is not presented to people from a computer match to your content. You do it yourself. You have all experienced the phenomenon of Facebook placing ads on your screen from Amazon because you were on their site searching for an item. This is similar but…. The link is coming from you as you reach out to your community. You know best which ads are relevant to your content and which products and services you would recommend. Bottom line: your readers see that you’ve taken your time to review a product or service, So…. They are more comfortable purchasing your recommendations.

How Do Affiliate Programs Pay?

All Affiliate programs have very specific guidelines for paying their affiliates. The two most common programs are:

  1. Pay per click – Similar to online advertising, the company pays as people click on links or images you place on your site. This is usually a very low paying action.
  2. Pay as people sign in – This method is my recommendation for starting out. The pay is the best and I personally am thrilled with the product from Wealthy Affiliates.
