Being in Singapore, many of you may not be aware of Online Affiliate Marketing. If you’re one of the few who know, congratulations! But this post is for those who don’t.
Online Affiliate Marketing in Singapore is not as popular here as in the US because of what I believe is our stinginess and general distrust towards buying virtual items.
Here’s a short guide to online affiliate marketing, and how you can get started!
Basically, affiliate marketing is to sell a product that someone else owns, and earn a commission on that. It’s almost like MLM, except that there are no layers of commission. 
How about online affiliate marketing? I’ve sieved through tons of information online and found out the two most popular/successful affiliate marketing products are EBooks and Products from the big stores.
EBook affiliate marketing will generally earn you the highest amount of commission. Numbers of up to 75% of sale price are not unknown, and in fact quite common!
The biggest supplier of EBooks can be found on Don’t be daunted by the infrastructure of the website. Take own time to explore and find a product to sell. What I recommend is to stick to a niche in our country or area, and look for the most popular books in that niche. It’s popular for a reason right? 
For physical products, I would recommend Amazon. What you would do is write product reviews on a platform (a blog, facebook, instagram, etc) and use an affiliate link so that users can click on it to view the product on Amazon. When they the product, you’ll get a small commission. This commission is really little, but if you have good traffic on your blog or social media, that little bit of commission may translate to high revenue.
Now, if you really are serious on online affiliate marketing, having a blog or facebook isn’t going to cut it. You’ll probably need
these things to get started seriously:
  1. Domain name (www.”your niche”.com) would be perfect
  2. Hosting
  3. Landing page
Create a landing page and fill it with SEO optimized keywords. You’ll need an article 500-800 page long if you’re selling an EBook. Hire a professional SEO writer to write it for you, you can find good ones on for $5.
Do some split testing on the site to find out the most optimal layout scheme. I’ll talk about split testing on another post.
Also, try to put some money into Google Adwords and Facebook Ads to generate traffic to your site. If the content is good, it will be highly converting. Remember that the information on your site has to be in context to your target audience. Remember their behavior – say, if you were to target Singaporeans, maybe you could throw in a free gift, or offer a discount!

Now for your landing page, if you hired a writer to do it for you, maybe you’d want to edit it yourself and incorporate some tips I offered in my post, The Art Of Persuasion. It’ll help convert even more readers!
Another tip: when doing Google Adwords and Facebook Ads, remember that it would be good to have optimized keywords, as the audience you’ll be targeting would be a very small pool.
Here’s an example: It would be better to have a 50% conversion rate of 1000 people than to have a 5% conversion rate of 10000 people. Why? Because you spend less on advertisements!
