Sin City Outdoors says:

I started a series called Test and Giveaway. Where companies send me 2 items. I review one and give the second away. I have never been affiliated with any of these companies and usually put their website link. My audience has reached a point that I would like to make a little cash off of my videos. I have millions of views but haven’t really made any cash lol. Any advice?

Tracy Alambatin says:

I have been thinking about Affiliate Marketing, but wanted to ease my mind if it was “weird” or not, but as long as I’m authentic about the products I should be okay. Thanks Sean!

Take a Bath Productions says:

I was happy to see this video, thinking what a great idea!! Then upon doing some research, there is great controversy on this subject as to wether it is allowed or not. Sean, I see you have linked up all the equipment that you use with the disclaimer. What’s the deal on wether youtube will allow this without causing any trouble? I definitely like the idea of doing this, but don’t want to get my channel banned. Also, if amazon requires a website, will they accept the youtube channel page as the website? I looked around on there, and couldn’t find one single mention on anything Youtube… Thanks

cesar polanco says:

Never heard about video influencers until I saw your videos of all the cool items you use to get your videos so perfect and the way you use a small place as a studio and make it seem so useful. Just downloaded the 19 secrets video. So let’s get started and believe me when I say that soon I will be crushing it in Spanish and English . Hope to hear from you soon on getting my website name domain registered.

Yak Motley says:

Thanks for the video ! But do you still have to “check ” the paid promotion box on the monetization page? I confused about that part. Video Creators in his old video said you had too. I just want to make sure Im doing it right lol.

Glamneeks TV says:

this video was really help full I did not know much about affiliate programs before this, thank you!

Flashfire Blitz says:

Thank you for a detailed explanation but how much do you think I will get for a single product

avinanda bawari says:

Pro tip 1: you mentioned let your viewers know about the link, but if I am making a cooking video, how do I let them know about it as they are interested in the recipe may be not the products I am using to make it.
Will it not make a negative impression?

Ryan Lavin says:

Hey Sean, I’ve been thinking about starting a channel and have got some mixed message on affiliate marketing. Some seem to be under the impression it is not allowed. Do you know what this is all about? I’ve heard something about channels being banned for affiliate marketing a few years back 2013ish

Emma Dixon says:

Is signing up for an affiliate program free?

James Karanu says:

I wish ther was affiliate marketing for international countries such as those in Africa. Apparently there is no affiliate marketing for my country Kenya

Adsense does help some, but marketing makes more cents. 😉
