Making Money with Crafts ~ Affiliate Programs and Testtimonials

The Above Rubies Studio Affiliate Program is no longer active, however I will be leaving this information posted for a record of how an Affiliate Marketing Program works.

On the very first day that I was announced as the ARS Success Coach not only did a get a warm welcome, but I also received my first question from another affiliate on how they could create an ad like I did. This is what I told her . . . it is SO EASY to do!

As crafters we all love to share information with each other, and really that is all an advertisement is! If you own any of the products from Above Rubies Studio go ahead and write something up on your blog and tell others why you love it. For an example of this, you can look at the post that I did on my personal blog for an example.

After you have read that post, continue on below . . .
Did you notice in that post how I told people what I liked about the DVD by showing them the questions that it answered? This leaves the person reading the advertisement wanting to know more and interested in purchasing the product for themselves. Had I just answered those questions for them they would not need to purchase the DVD to get the answers! Also, all of the links in the advertisement go directly to my ARS Affiliate Store instead of directing them to the main site. This way I know that I will get the commission for the sales generated off of this advertisement. After that I simply went out on my normal social networking groups and shared the links with some of the crafting and card making groups I am in.

“But Shawn, I don’t own any of the ARS products to write a testimonial about.”

I have an answer for that too . . . use my testimonial! All you need to do is copy and paste the post that I have written at my blog and then go back and CHANGE THE LINKS to go to YOUR affiliate site. I would also suggest adding an introduction at the beginning of the blog post such as . . .

Here is some great news from the Above Rubies Affiliate Program Success Coach, Shawn Mosch!

Then insert the post that I created and most importantly remember to change the links to go to your ARS Affiliate Site so that you will get the commission for any sales. The next step is sharing the link to the post with some people, and this is very easy to do if you are in any Facebook groups that would be interested in the product.
