As for Ebay, Amazon, and Etsy

how to sell clothes onlineIt is really easy to join an affiliate program. They are free to join. In essence, all you do is become an affiliate for the program, you drive traffic from your websites to them, and once these visitors purchase anything from their stores, you make a commission. The great thing about these stores* is that you get commission off of all of the products your visitor checks out with. They may not even buy the specific item they got connected with them for and you still get commission!

* Amazon and Etsy definitely, but I have not verified eBay yet.

I know a few of the people in my network that have stated that their website is about something totally different, and they got commissions for random things from Amazon such as electronics or personal products. This is because those visitor initially clicked a link on their website and it drove them to the seller’s website. This is because of a phenomenal thing called cookies. I believe Amazon has 24 hours cookies, and Etsy has 30 day cookies. Anyone who you drove to their website within these time frames that makes a purchase, you will earn that commission.

  1. So if I’m wanting to sell clothes would you suggest using a website to refer readers to clothing stores online? I’ve seen that “Affiliate” link at the bottom of websites and never knew what it meant. How much of a percentage of the sale do they give as commissions? Is every company different?

    1. Eric the best way to build an online business is through building a website. You can surely promote affiliate links on other platforms such as social media platforms, or forums, but it will never equate to the amount of traffic and sales you can get by developing your own website. When done correctly you can drive 10s thousands of traffic daily to your website. Could you imagine the profit/sales potential? Remember I mentioned above where to find the training to help you accomplish this.

      Just to clarify, without a website, your business will be short lived.

      That ‘affiliate’ link you see at the bottom of most websites such as Walmart, Best Buy, etc. is to apply for an affiliate relationship with that company. Each company is different in what their requirements as to what qualifies for a commission and such. Also, I’ve seen some companies pay up to 75% commission on the sale of products. Affiliate marketing can be a very lucrative business!

  2. This is similar to what I do on my own website! Except I do not sell my own clothes, I just discuss certain clothes and then direct to a place where they can buy them. SEO is also extremely important in driving traffic, I am still learning the best practices myself. Thanks for the article!

    1. Alex, thanks for sharing. I’m glad to hear that you’re taking advantage of affiliate marketing; leveraging the internet, and building your own website, so that you can generate revenue online. This is an awesome business! You’re absolutely right to seek out training for learning SEO; it’s very important. You’ll find that once you learn it though, it’s like riding a bike.

      To summarize all that you’ll need to learn, it’s making your content readable, using the right graphics, sharing your content on social media, creating engagement, and getting comments on your content. These are some of the things that I can think of off the top of my head. There is more to learn, and as I mentioned above, this is where you can find the right training to help you accomplish this.
