A Negro’s Trying to Get PAID

I’ve never really tried to make any money with my current position on Youtube as of yet. It seems like there are a lot of ways to profit from my situation in a way that puts $ in my pockets AND enhances the lives of me viewers. One of the ways that keeps popping to mind is through affiliate marketing.

Here’s [the Wikipeida entry for affiliate marketing] but I’ll try my best to explain to save you from too much reading. The way it basically works is you have a link on a website, a person clicks that link and goes to a companies page. If the person buys something from that page the company pays you. Bada-bing bada-boom. Money in the bank.

The way I figured I could get that to work was by (for example) making a video promoting a certain product and then having a link in the more info area to that product or service. I currently have 2 things in mind. One is webhosting and the other is Gamefly.

Gamefly works nice for me because I actually use the service and a lot of my Youtube subscribers are gamers. A perfect match I think. I signed up to be a Gamefly affiliate just now… Now I have to think about how to get my link into a video properly (I think it should just be a copy and paste job, but I emailed their support just in case.) Here’s a text based affiliate link in case someone happens to read this that wants to check out the service and help a negro get paid. 🙂 I think the shit is awesome, so it’ll be easy for me to sell.

    I think Youtube probably has rules to prevent you from putting affiliate links (not sure, though). You could get around that by using your blog to promote the products, and sending people from the Youtube video to your blog.

    Yeah I think they might too. I’m going to ask about that, but what I’ll probably do is promote something in the video and have it link to an article on the blog or something like that.
