Things You Need to Know Before Starting Affiliate Marketing in Singapore

Updated: Apr 14

What is Affiliate Marketing?

Affiliate marketing is a strategy where individuals or companies earn a commission by promoting a business's products or services.

They use unique links to track sales and receive a reward when their marketing leads to a purchase.

How much can I earn from Affiliate Marketing?

Realistically, many affiliate marketers start with small earnings and gradually increase their income as they refine their strategies and grow their audience.

Some successful affiliate marketers can earn thousands to tens of thousands of dollars per month, but such success typically involves significant time investment, strategic planning, and persistent effort.

For most, it's a gradual journey rather than overnight success. So it's important to stay consistent!

Here are some of my past payouts from Affiliate Marketing, which makes me feel like this stream of income is worth my time. I'm still learning & trying to improve too!

Why Affiliate Marketing makes sense

If you're someone who's always like "good deals must share", affiliate marketing will be your new best friend!

Since you're already recommending products to friends and family offline, or online on your social media, affiliate marketing allows you to monetize these recommendations. Your friends & family does NOT pay anything extra.

By using affiliate links, you can earn a commission on sales generated through your referrals.

Unlike starting a business where you sell your own products, affiliate marketing doesn't require you to handle inventory, shipping, customer service, or returns. You simply promote the products, and the company handles the rest.

You can choose which products you want to promote and how you want to promote them. This flexibility allows you to align your affiliate marketing efforts with your personal interests and lifestyle.

Once your content with affiliate links is created and published, it can continue to generate income over time, offering a form of passive income. Blog posts, social media updates, and videos can keep earning long after they are initially shared.

Also, you don't need a high following to get started!

What's the catch? Who's paying for it?

The business/ seller whose products you are promoting pays the commission. They allocate a portion of their marketing budget to affiliate programs, seeing it as a cost-effective way to reach a wider audience. This is because they only pay when a sale is actually made, as opposed to traditional advertising where costs are incurred without guaranteed returns.

It's a win-win!

The good news for you is, no risk & no capital is required from you to start up Affiliate Marketing!

How do I earn from Affiliate Marketing?

To earn from affiliate marketing, you typically follow these steps:

1. Find Affiliate Programs: Look for affiliate programs from popular platforms including Shopee, Tiktok, Amazon etc. Some companies also offer direct affiliate programs.

2. Create Content: Develop content such as videos, social media posts, group discussion chats, or a website where you can feature affiliate products. Your content should provide value to your audience and naturally incorporate your affiliate links.

3. Promote Affiliate Links: Place your affiliate links within your content in a way that encourages your audience to click on them. This could involve product reviews, tutorials, or product comparisons.

4. Track Your Performance: Use analytics tools provided by affiliate programs to track your performance. Monitor which strategies are working best and adjust your approach accordingly.

My personal favourite sites to earn from Affiliate Commissions

My personal top choices for earning affiliate commissions are Shopee and TikTok.

These platforms are particularly effective due to their high traffic volumes in Singapore, which naturally translates to a higher likelihood of successful conversions and a greater take-up rate.

You can share your links on:

1. Social Media Platforms

2. Blogging and Websites

3. Online Communities and Forums

4. Chat Groups

Good Skillsets to know

1. Photo/Video Taking:

  • High-quality visuals can help capture the attention of your audience. Good photography and videography skills allow you to showcase products in a more appealing and professional manner. 2. Video Editing:

  • With the growing preference for short format video content, being equipped with video editing skills can help to make your videos more concise and engaging. (If you do need a simple video editing course, I have a guided CapCut Quickstart that helps you master video editing under 1 hour.)

3. Storytelling:

  • The ability to tell a compelling story is key in engaging your audience. Good storytelling can make your content more relatable and memorable. It involves crafting narratives around the products/ services you're promoting.
