About BrandiPucket
Joined March 2019
I am a single mom of four amazing children. Ages 26, 21, 20 and my youngest being 6mo. All four being a unique and beautiful blessing to my life. We are a creative family of artists, musicians and photographers. I have studied herbs and essential oils for the last 17 years. I have made bath, beauty and household products for my family and friends for years. I occasionally set up at craft fairs and in my younger years I sold wholesale to local shops. Due to the demands of life I have put my dream of owning my own business on the back burner for far too long. I am ready to achieve my goals. I am starting from the ground up with a fresh perspective, wisdom in my field, willingness to learn the skills I need to be successful and sheer determination. I look forward to working with all of you and I look forward to learning and growing to expand my business and my life. I believe that Wealthy Affiliate is exactly what I've been looking for.

I have products that I make & sell. Can I list my products on my website? I have a Facebook business page, which I've made a couple hundred off of in the last couple of months but Facebook isn't the best platform for selling my products. So would it be better to direct people to my Facebook?

Hi Brandi,
The best platforms to sell handmade products or something like that are Shopify and Etsy. You could promote them on your blog which should take your visitors to Shopify or Etsy. Facebook is not recommended to sell those products. Visitors could also be taken to those platforms from Facebook.
Hope this helps,
Tom

Hi Brandi.

You have a wonderful problem. No matter where you advertise I suggest you give a lot of attention to the presentation. Try to create an emotional feel using pictures and words.

I wish you much success in your ventures!

Cheers.

Edwin

Hi Brandi,

If your website has the same topic it's a great place to sell your product. But it's best if your products and your website is in the same niche, otherwise it's confusing to your website visitors. The more places people can buy your products, the better, I guess,

It's very easy to add a shop (like WooCommerce) to a website. You can ad a shop for your own products or a shop for affiliated products. I haven't done it yet myself, but will do this year. Especially after watching Jay's webinar . That made me want to have a shop too :-)

Good luck!

Best,

Bianca

Hi, that's great.
You can reach a lot of people on Facebook and great you have a Facebook business page. But could it not be interesting to own your own webstore with your handmade products. And of course you can link your Facebook page to it. And a lot of other ways how to create traffic to your site. You own your own name. You choose the layout of it. I would advice you to use Woo commerce as a plug in for your website it's made for online stores to sell products.
Hope I helped

How do I add affiliate links to my blog? Do I have to contact companies personally? Any insight is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Hi - yes, you have to apply to each affiliate program you are interested in. They all have different terms and conditions. Some may wish to inspect your site first to ensure it has plenty of content and is attracting customers.

The easiest one is Amazon, as they accept anybody. However, you have to be aware that you are expected to make 3 sales in 180 days and they can't be from family or friends.

This is covered thoroughly in the training. That's really where you should start: Adding affiliate links too soon will not help you. You have to create a good site with content and traffic. Follow the training -- that's why it's there -- and you will get the answers you need.

Best wishes to you.

Be patient and don't try to jump ahead of the training. It is designed to provide with the information you need in a specific order that makes sense.

You need to sign up for one or more affiliate programs and use their tools to create the links. You then place the links in your posts.

It depends, some companies operate their affiliate schemes through networks like commission junction, tradedoubler, etc, so you’d apply through the network, then post the code given to you in your blog posts/pages.

Other vendors operate their own in-house affiliate programs (check the footer on their website for ‘Affiliates’ link. Some vendors don’t operate affiliate offers at all.

If the vendor doesn’t offer an affiliate scheme you might still be able to negotiate a commission privately.

Don’t be afraid to ask. :-) ‘Shy boys and girls get nowt’ 😉

Hope this helps,
