I recently came across this great video showcasing the Top 5 WordPress Plugins that you must have as an affiliate marketer.
Let’s jump right into the video and check out my notes below!
Here’s the video description I took off of Youtube.
In this video, I reveal the top 5 WordPress plugins you should be using on all of your affiliate sites and blogs. I also reveal 2 killer Amazon affiliate programs you should use on your Amazon sites.
So what are the best WordPress plugins you should be using as an affiliate marketer?
Here are the ones:
All in One SEO – I use this plugin on EVERY single one of my affiliate blogs the moment I create them. This plugin will dramatically increase your search engine traffic, so it makes sense to install it right away.
JetPack by WordPress – This is a plugin that I wish was around years ago when I first started affiliate marketing. This plugin suite comes complete with traffic generation tools, traffic analytics, backup and security tools, and more. This is a highly recommended plugin.
Amazon Link – This plugin allows you to embed a slue of different Amazon advertising tools into your blogs. This is just one of those tools that can help you increase your Amazon affiliate commissions from day one, so I install this on all my affiliate blogs.
Easy Affiliate Links – One of biggest headaches of managing a bunch of affiliate blogs is managing affiliate links. This tool will help you manage your links so that you can easily modify them from one convenient place.
Amazon Link Engine – This tool will help you localize your amazon affiliate links based on the website visitors geographic location. This can help you increase your Amazon sales 10-15% just by enabling it. I highly recommend this plugin.
What I love about this video is that it entails to affiliate marketing in general and for anyone in other niches or sub-niches, can always use these plugins as a starting ground.
What he shared most are plugins to link to and from Amazon. Especially your affiliate links.
It works the same in the IM/MMO niche for us too.

Don’t forget to share – because sharing is always caring!

Heard of MailerLite? Nope, not yet – yeah most probably.
I’ve been using AWeber since I started my online journey…
But I must say, ever since the beginnings – I have always had the urge to find something better but nothing was available at that time, until just recently…
MailerLite launched and all other competitors should, if not, be afraid of them.
Simply because of MailerLite’s unique features, user experience and great support.
What is MailerLite?
The next BIG autoresponder company you will fall in love with!
Click Image to find out more about MailerLite…
Basically, MailerLite is all you need. Take it from me, they have surpassed all features and integrations like no other in the market.
I was shocked at how easy it was to create stunning emails, compelling opt-in pages on the fly!

Subscribe while you’re there! You don’t want to be making the same 5 mistakes I did, right?
So, back to where we were — Their interface rocks! You will feel the difference when you login to your member’s dashboard.
But why MailerLite?
The main reason why anyone should choose them before anything else in the world is the price.
Although it’s free for up to a thousand subscribers, plus all the rich features you get – the insane amount of value and support you get from them is by far the best I’ve experienced.
Here’s a snippet of their pricing table;
Just follow this link to see their full pricing table.
This is insane you guys…
“Unbelievably cheap for the insane value, rich features we get with MailerLite!”
I’ve heard many high praises for them in terms of email deliverability and if you’re like me, you want your emails to land in your subscribers inbox instead of junk, right?
They are the best at that!
One of the features I love most about is the email designer (I don’t know if that’s what they call it, lol.) Just look how simple it is to write your emails!
With draggable blocks and elements you can add to your email body, I’ve never seen this done like this on AWeber (f**king honest opinion here.)
Oh yeah, take a look at this next screenshot I took for you guys. That’s one of their amazing features, Workflow – Automation. You can set custom triggers for example; when email is opened, send next follow up sequence after a day etc…
It’s totally something new and I’ve not seen this with any other autoresponder service out there!
For their full list of amazingly-rich features, click here.
You will not regret this…
It’s making a buzz around the internet right now as we speak. So trust this handsome fella here when I say, MailerLite will be the next AWeber that will NEVER suck your wallet dry. Haha!
Trust me when I say, I’m not a good writer nor do I know how to write a good blog post. I’m the least favourite or should I say, last person you would come to and ask for advice on writing.
But this is the sort of thing that if you continue to do more of, you will get good at it. Heck, you’ll be the master at it!
Just like sex…lol. Fact, right? You’re not good at it the first time. Or are you?
But you get better at it the more you do it or practice it.
The kind of questions I get the most from people around me are sort of mind boggling to me. Because for some time, I’ve not really got a good ground base at this internet marketing game – because like you, I’m just any other normal guy who gets overwhelmed easily by a lot of things.
That’s why I wanted to write this post to share with you some of the things that we actually do – that being one of the reasons why, another would be because I have friends who think we just sit in our lazy couches at home and just do nothing to make money work for us online.
But that’s not the case here…
There is a lot of work that goes into building an online business. For example, the one most crucial and essential part of your online journey is building a list. A list of loyal subscribers who wants to learn from you. Who wants to buy from you.
When I first got started, I thought building a list was just listing from 1 through 10 and writing down the programs that I’m with or make the most money from. Told ya, even I make the craziest mistakes.
So when I finally came around to figuring out that building a list is actually really simple.
You build a list of a loyal tribe who is always waiting for your next action or move. What’s the next big thing that you’re providing to your list.
Which leads us to the next point.
I must say that this is also an integral part of your success in your online business.
You can’t just be building a list and keep selling the next shiny object that comes out.
It boils down to how successful you build your relationship with your subscribers, your list.
Are you the kind of person that just sits there and mails your list to a product offer that you are affiliated with and wait for your subscribers to buy from you?
Well, it doesn’t work that way – like I said, it takes a lot of work building your online empire. Creating solid relationships with your list is critical.
You want to be seen as someone who is knowledgeable in what you preach – or should I say, the professional. People value someone who provides value in their life.
“Being The Mentor They Need…”
Sometimes it all begins with you mentoring someone. Teaching them something simple like starting up a wordpress blog, how to buy a domain name or setup hosting.
You could do just that and build yourself a list because you’re providing massive value to others by showing how to do a simple task.
I had a friend who already left the internet marketing game for quite sometime to pursue his hacking career. Yeah he’s a genius – but he shared one thing with me before and I believe anyone in this online sphere would agree with me when I say, problem solvers make the most money.
Everyone has a problem, right? Solve them for people – they’ll thank you for the rest of their lives!
So what is it that we do online?
Mostly the part about making money online is a generalised term. But I would say it’s definitely about building cherishable relationships with your peers online and helping each other solve a certain issue while making money on the sideline of it all.
It’s fascinating to see what powers you have when you build a list and have a good relationship with your tribe.
So what’s your biggest confusion when it comes to building a solid income online? Write your frustration in the comments below – I’m excited to see the answers you guys have 🙂
