The particular channel I used to test this particular method. Was only launched Thursday 28 February 2019. And did result in far better results than I have anticipated. With YouTube Video, target keyword placement and the Hashtag plays an important role to getting exposure. But that's a topic for another time.
Now I’m just going to briefly explain exactly what I have done. To leverage Google Ads and YouTube showing actual sales in my ClickBank account. Because to do a step by step from new channel design to video creation and optimization. Is just not possible in a single post. Because the key is not to have your affiliate link as a redirect on the Google Ad. But rather the URL to a specific video.
The Cloaked URL to your affiliate offer must be present in the Video Description. And with sufficiently Compelling Content your visitor will click on the Link in the Video Description. So be sure your content address a specific need. Or you may just run into that “Zero Results” wall.
If you would like to know how to turn content like a blog post into a video? Then just leave a comment and we can get into that. I’ll be happy to show you the free method I use.
From inside your YouTube Channel Studio. You will see the arrow next to your video thumbnail displaying under “Videos”.
The drop down menu will present a few options. Click on the “Promote” prompt and follow the steps to access Google Ads.
Inside Google Ads you will be asked to provide the link where you want the visitor to go. Which is where you enter the URL as shown below. From your Video Editing Dashboard.
Pay attention to the settings inside Google Ads. And target the Top Tier Countries. And also the right Age Group of your Audience. Take your time to learn your way around Google Ads. Because when done right, this will generate affiliate sales.
Have you used other methods to generate affiliate sales?
