Hi, I'm Margaret LeDane
...Certified Holistic Health Coach, product reviewer, Amazon Influencer (affiliate), Walmart Creator (affiliate), affiliate marketer, mom, grandmom, IBS and eczema survivor, clean-living addict, and online entrepreneur since 2011.
I started my health coaching business in 2011 after 'going clean' and healing my IBS and eczema during health coaching school.
Product recommendations were part of my coaching sessions, so I became an Amazon Affiliate in 2016 and learned something super cool; I could make commissions from Amazon when my clients purchased the products I recommended through my Amazon affiliate product link.
And then in 2023 I discovered Amazon's next level affiliate program, Amazon Influencer.
The Influencer program is when an Influencer (like myself) makes a review video of a product, uploads the video to their Amazon Storefront, and then gets paid when someone watches the video and makes a purchase.
I started making review videos in January 2023 and I am still making commissions from them.
My goal for 2024 is to buy large ticket items so I can get my daily commissions to (at least) $300 a day or $9,000 a month!
This is a lofty goal since I still work full-time, but this side-hustle is the best so I'm ready for the challenge.
What Is Affiliate Marketing
Affiliate marketing is a type of online marketing where a business rewards affiliates for driving traffic or sales to their website. Affiliates are typically third-party individuals or companies who promote the business's products or services on their own platforms, such as blogs, social media, or websites.
In affiliate marketing, the business pays the affiliate a commission for each sale or conversion that results from the affiliate's promotional efforts. The commission may be a percentage of the sale price or a fixed amount per sale, and is usually tracked using unique affiliate links or codes.
Affiliate marketing can be a mutually beneficial arrangement, as the business gains exposure and sales through the affiliate's promotional efforts, while the affiliate earns a commission for their marketing efforts.
