About This Video:
In this video Sean Cannell from Video Influencers covers How to Make Money on YouTube with Affiliate Marketing. If you are researching how to make more money on youtube then check out the tips on affiliates, youtube affiliates, and affiliate marketing programs, that are covered in this video!



  1. I've tried affiliate marketing in the past, but I wasn't very consistent or thoughtful about it. I'm excited to do it right this time. Thanks, as always, for the great tips. I've watched a lot of your videos 🙂

  2. I have a question about integrating affiliate marketing into my channel while being a YouTube partner. How or what do I do to avoid YouTube demonetizing my videos. YouTube does not answer this question directly. Can you help me?

  3. A lot of those videos that don't have affiliate links is because the company is already paying them or sponsoring them to advertise the product therefore both sides get money as well as the content creator getting the product for free.

  4. Very informative video. I have my own YouTube channel about prepping, science and being selfsufficient and I discovered there are a whole lot of different products that are related to this topic. Thanks for the info!

  5. Hi Great content like always… I recently got my Amazon Influencer account and even that I started promotion on Facebook and Instagram, I'm not sure what are the best practices for that. On the other hand, if I do have my Amazon shop link, if I want to promote an specific item and someone from another country wants to buy, seems that the link for the item is different to another country.

  6. I would like to get involved in this marketing. I am sketchy about the fine print. Thanks for putting this marketing in common ordinary language, especially for us old people. Thanks again. Randy H DSD

  7. I did have some idea what it was, but now I know more about it, plus you answered some of my
    questions (very good advice about how to recommend the links). I still have some doubts with , like how do they generally pay affiliate marketers (Pay-Pal, Checks, Deposit), usual required
    documentation to enroll in those programs, etc.

  8. Awesome video! Very helpful links in the description as well. I know it sounds academic but anyone watching this video should also be looking at the description for layout and content strategies. I know I am! Thanks for all the help as I start my journey!

  9. sir i have a YouTube channel with just 150 subcribe for now.. I started Amazon affiliate marketing. but after 3 transaction when i actually make some money amazon banned my account saying that you don't have enough subcriber on your channel so for our internal policies we close your account.can i fix this? I don't see any video covering about the topic.when should i start then? please let me know

  10. Great content as always Sean. I notice that very few people who I trust as top creators talk about the eBay Partner Program? Is there a reason for this? Anyone have thoughts and opinions on this program?

  11. I am among those people who want to work a few hours at home daily to generate a lot of cash. I haven`t found any working techniques until I uncovered “fetching mowo press” from a good friend. I searched it on the internet and now my every day income is over A hundred dollars.

  12. Hi Sean. I just became an Amazon Associate and am just researching how to make best use of it. I have a DIY Youtube channel with 21,000 subscribers and around 4 million views. Can you attach amazon links to EXISTING videos. My problem is that my son shot , edited, and uploaded my videos, and we now live in different cities. I am not very tech savvy. I love your video…quick and to the point.

  13. I have a question, so at your suggestion I made an amazon affiliate account. Since then I have gotten at least a couple of sales. However I haven't made anything from it. What am I doing wrong?
