I’ve recently taken an interest in affiliate marketing as I continue to explore the digital economy for ways to make both active and deferred (passive) income.

In simple terms, affiliate marketing involves a retailer paying commissions to a third party for traffic and sales generated from its referrals.

For the third party, this is a great way to make money considering you’re only promoting a product or service, and don’t have to deal with the fulfillment and delivery.

For retailers, it’s a great way to generate traffic, sales and new customers.

To get started, you’ll need a YouTube channel, and you will have to pick a niche. Picking a niche does 2 things:

  1. Determines your speed of growth & scale
  2. Determines your scale of earnings

From my research however, I have discovered the following niches to be the most rewarding.

1. Green Products-Energy Saving — Green products are big right now although there was a slight decrease in the summer and bills were much lower. There will be an increase in demand once the cold sets in. Solar affiliate programs can be found on Google or Click Bank.

2. Cryptocurrency — Crypto is currently down so this might be the best time to join bandwagon as an investor or an affiliate marketer. Two great sources of income for crypto are YouTube ad revenue and affiliate commission.

3. Metaverse — You want to keep an eye on the Metaverse. This is a digital space where people with avatars can interact as they do in the real world. Companies are taking advantage of this and using it for business meetings.

4. Budgeting — After summer seems to be a good time to promote products about budgeting. A YouTube channel can be dedicated to this since people will always want to save more money.

5. E-learning — People are more interested in learning online now instead of going to college. A channel that promotes e-learning courses or gives reviews about different courses will help in affiliate marketing.

There are several channels dedicated to each of the above niches that you can check out on YouTube.
