One of the ways in which you can earn some revenue from your Joomla website is by enrolling it for an affiliate marketing program. So this would be a scheme where you’d be giving visitors to your Joomla website links to other sites where various products and services are sold. If the visitors to your Joomla website click on those links and end up buying the products/services sold on those other sites, you’d earn a commission. It is really a straightforward way to earn revenue from your Joomla website. And if you do it properly, you are likely to earn more through this scheme (that is, through affiliate marketing) than what you’d have earned through other arrangements (like, for instance, pay per click advertising).
To use your Joomla website for affiliate marketing, you will need to:
- Identify the products/services that can be successfully marketed on the type of website you have
- Identify an ideal affiliate marketing program to enroll in
- Enroll your Joomla website in the affiliate marketing program
- Include the links to the product/services sales pages (as well as the tracking code)
- Encourage the visitors to your Joomla website to click on the links and proceed to buy the linked products/services
- Sit back and wait for the commissions to start flowing in.
It may be a good idea to include, in your Joomla website, a phone number that visitors to the site can call, in case they need to get any clarifications. You need to understand that some visitors may need to get certain clarifications, before they can buy the linked products/services. Therefore, having such a phone number can make all the difference between making the sales/earning the commissions and missing out on the same. It surely doesn’t cost too much money to have a dedicated phone line that visitors to your Joomla website can be calling, whenever they need any clarifications. You may initially have fears of having to pay metropcs bill for the dedicated phone line (that is, if you are a Metro PCS subscriber). But you need to dismiss such fears, given the fact that the metro pay bill rates are usually quite pocket-friendly. Furthermore, if you select the right Metro PCS plan, you can get into an arrangement where you would be paying a flat monthly rate. And in any event, it is the people calling you who would be incurring phone bills — though you also have the option of setting up a toll-free number, to encourage callers. All said and done, affiliate marketing is one of the best ways to monetize your Joomla website.
