Check out my First Affiliate Income 27$ from Udemy Affiliate

Written by Muhammad Ahmad

I landed in the world of affiliate marketing last year. I kept learning from different blogs, Read books related to affiliate marketing, watched courses at Udemy and found it very interesting. I already sharedย Top Marketing Blogsย that are my favorite ones. I love to read every latest post that gets published there.

In 2015, I had a time-management issue. So, I thought to learn not to implement! In 2016, the month of January has passed and in that month, I tried Affiliate Marketing for the very first time. I earned 27$ Not much? Right?
I am happy with it as it’s my first income from the love, Affiliate Marketing ๐Ÿ™‚

In this post, I’ll share how I did that in the form of story:

Which Affiliate Network I used?

The affiliate network that I used was LinkShare. As I told earlier, I tried affiliate marketing for the very first time, and so the LinkShare is the first affiliate network I joined so far.

With which brand I affiliated and why?

I affiliated with Udemy (an online platform where you can buy OR sell video courses). Why I chose this? The reason is simple; I found this affiliate program easy to promote and it proved comfortable when I tried!

How I Promoted the Udemy deal?

I got approved by LinkShare. At January 22, I received an e-mail regarding the 10$ Udemy deal.
First, I ignored it. After ignoring it, I felt worried and talked to myself:
” We learn but not implement?”
I opened the e-mail, copied the affiliate links and thought to promote it!
I had already learned affiliate marketing techniques from blogs, and now, it was the time to implement what I’ve learned so far!
First, I created a landing page:
Opened Facebook and navigated to my ads account, created an Ad that was pointing to the landing page! Here is a brief summary of Ad campaign:
Total Budget: 10$
Targeted: USA & UK (audience)
Reach: 7098
Post Likes: 197
Post Shares: 34
After setting up the ad campaign, I went sleep and had a couple of bloggy dreams :D. I woke up and got excited to see five sales in the analytics! Still the campaign was running, and I started hoping for better results….

Earned 27$ – at the end of campaign

Udemy offered 10% commission per sale, so I made sales of 270$ to make 27$ ๐Ÿ™‚ I was very excited to see the dashboard showing the first affiliate income! See the snap from Payoneer account:

And here comes the first happiness :)————————————————-via Udemy affiliate!

  • This is great, especially I liked the idea of creating a landing page for Udemy course. I joined LinkShare and got approved with Udemy affiliate, but I didn’t have any idea about it how to promote. And your idea sounds great like promoting during their promotional period sounds realistic.
    All the best and happy blogging journey. Looking forward to hear a lot of such successful stories on your blog.
