Now if you’re looking to get a job in affiliate marketing and you are a total beginner, I’m going to be showing you in this video some of the top companies, some of the top cities and some of the top jobs you can get in this new industry. Let’s go get it. So, if you’re looking to get a job in affiliate marketing, maybe you’re just starting out. Maybe are a total beginner and you want to have the safety net and the security of a job before you go way into this crazy world of commission only marketing on the internet. Or maybe you’re just interested in being in the affiliate marketing scene but you don’t necessarily want to work for yourself. You want to work for a company. That’s totally cool too. Affiliate marketing is a really exciting space. Obviously, I do a lot of affiliate marketing myself. I run a multi-million dollar business doing this.
And I’m going to be good showing you in this video some of the top jobs that you can get an affiliate marketing. The top cities in which you can find these jobs. And also be naming a few companies, some of the top companies that it is to work for in this space. Now, if you want to learn more about doing affiliate marketing specifically, which is commission only marketing. I’m going to have my Filipinos post a link to a playlist. I have a free course on YouTube about affiliate marketing. I’ll have them link to that.
So, one of the first jobs that you can get in affiliate marketing is as an affiliate manager. Now, an affiliate manager is somebody who connects affiliates with products that they can promote. So, typically speaking, an affiliate manager will make anywhere from 10 to 20 percent commission. They’ll make 10 to 20 percent of the profits of whatever their company makes from the affiliate marketer promoting them.
Which equals out to be about maybe 2% of revenues. Now, the only way this makes sense is if you are connecting with super affiliates. Now affiliate managers are meant to connect with big affiliates. What this means is let’s say for instance, you are an affiliate manager for Ubers affiliate program. If you’re an affiliate manager for Ubers affiliate program, you want to find people who can send lots and lots and lots of potential customers to Uber. So, you’ll be contacting big YouTubers, big instagramers, big bloggers, big snapchatters, you’ll be contacting people that have very big online presences or just very big presences in general to talk about and link to Ubers affiliate program.
So, that would be your job and you’d earn a percentage of whatever Uber profits on them or whatever that commission plan is. So, that’s an affiliate manager and that’s one of the basic places you will be working in the affiliate marketing industry. Business development is another job within affiliate marketing that you can do and you can earn money from. Anywhere from 10 to 20 percent commission.
Now, if you’re doing business development, what you’re doing instead of finding affiliates like what affiliate managers do, you are actually finding businesses that want to create an affiliate offer. So, for instance, you would be working for an affiliate networks such as acceleration partners or commission junction or share sale, Avangate, etc. And you’d be working for one of these companies going out and finding businesses to create an affiliate program for them. An example of this. Let’s say be going to Dell or Hewlett-Packard. And you’d be calling them or emailing them or connecting with them at a in person at a conference or something. You’d say, “Hey, would you like to get more customers? You know more people buying your computers.” Or, “Hey, would you like to get more people investing in your company?” You know, to JPMorgan or something like that.
Or you’d go to maybe Kaiser Permanente or Blue Shield. And you’d say, “Hey would you like more customers for your health insurance?” What many businesses would say is, “Yes, what do you… What do you have? What’s your idea?” You’d say let’s create an affiliate program for you. And we will have people… Will find affiliates and we’ll get you more customers. And you’ll pay us only what you believe is fair every time you get a customer. Maybe that’s $100, maybe that’s $1,000 if you get a new customer for JPMorgan or Citibank or whatever.
Your goal is to help connect businesses and get them bought in to start an affiliate program. Typically, you can make anywhere from 10 to 20 percent of what that entire program involves. In this scenario, let’s say you create an affiliate program for JPMorgan. Let’s say you get them 1,000 customers at $1,000 per customer, okay? Which is called the CPA. Now, in this scenario, you still have to get affiliates to promote your programs. Let’s say they’re giving $800 to the affiliate per new customer. So, your margin is $200. Which means the company margin is $200,000 in this scenario per month to create an affiliate program for JPMorgan, let’s say. So, you’d get 10% of that. So, if you got JPMorgan as a client, you would make 10%. So, just drop the zero and that would be a $20,000 per month account if you were the business development executive who actually helped set up this deal.
You connected the dots and you made sure, let’s say you’re working for acceleration partners. After you talk to JPMorgan, you had them connect with your development and tech team to do all the technical stuff. And then your company would have gotten all the affiliates and they’ve done do all the outreach. But just for setting up the deal, you would make $20,000 per month. This is a very realistic scenario. All of the numbers involved are at our extremely realistic.
I mean if you could land JPMorgan as a client, that would be obviously a huge deal. That would make you a lot of money. Now, you stack a couple other clients on top of that, you can make hundreds and hundreds of thousands, even millions of dollars a year if you set up a couple big deals like that. So, that’s Business Development. Another job within affiliate marketing is being a media buyer. Now, a media buyer, some people call it an in-house affiliate. Basically you will be spending money on ads on Facebook, Google, YouTube, Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat. Whatever. You’ll be spending money on ads. And you’ll be hoping to make your company profit. Now, let’s say that the products are advertising pays you $100. Let’s say you’re working for organifi. Which is my friend Drew Canole’s company.
And by the way, I did a really good interview with Drew Canole. He’s got one of the best affiliate programs around. I’ll have my my Filipino assistants post a link somewhere on here to the interview series I did with him of how to get that motivation to be an entrepreneur. But his product pays about $100 commission if you get somebody to buy their line of natural supplements. He sells health supplements. So, $100 and you are buying ads. Let’s say you are buying ads on Facebook and you are spending $50 per customer. And you get 100 customers, okay? So, you spend $50 per customer. So you made $50 profit per customer. And you got 100 customers. So, you add a couple zeros. So, you made $5,000 profit for organifi. Now, media buyers typically get paid 10 to 20% Commission. For the company they work for. Now, it’s a great way. If you want to be an affiliate yourself, the best way to do this would be to be a media buyer.
And to start out because then you’re actually spending other people’s money. –OPM. You’re spending a company’s money. You’re taking no risk yourself and you’re learning how to buy ads in the process and how to be an affiliate yourself. Now, if you’re working for a company, again you’re taking a risk. See, you don’t get all the profit. But you’ll get let’s say 10 to 20 percent commission. In this scenario, you’d be making somewhere between 500 to $1,000 per month as a in-house media buyer. Great place to start if you want to start in the affiliate marketing industry. My story, I didn’t start as a media buyer. I started working for an actual ad agency I was managing people’s AdWords accounts. Not on a commission only basis. I was managing them just as an employee. I was getting paid about $6,000 per month. But I was managing about 2 million dollars worth of monthly ad spent. I got to spend other people’s money to learn how to be a better marketer and advertised to people in a way that would make them want to buy stuff and give me their information.
So, great place to start as a media buyer. The companies you’ll want to work for, you know, you can work for affiliate networks. But most of the companies will work for as a media buyer will be actual companies that have their own affiliate offers. And the job title is oftentimes in-house media buyer or just a media buyer. Now, a few other jobs that you can do to work for affiliate marketing companies. There’s a smattering of these but they’re not going to give you… Not all the time that direct experience like being a media bias buying the ads or like affiliate management we’ll be connecting you with all those affiliates. Now, some other jobs that affiliate marketing companies are looking for are copywriters. Copywriters are people who write ads and who write landing pages or advertorials. Different sorts of marketing copy. The best ad is so important in marketing. And I actually have a interview series I did with two of my close friends Carlos Cruz and Ronnie Sandlin, that’ll have my assistants link to.
They’ll have these jobs in demand. So, some of the top cities where you can find jobs for affiliate marketing. I’ve put in the board behind me. One thing I want to disclaim before I show that to you is there are tons of remote jobs for affiliate networks and affiliate marketing related companies. But that being said, if you really want to increase your chances of getting a job in this industry, you’ll want to go to where the cities are.
Again, it’s about your commitment. If you’re really vested in getting a job in this industry, do what it takes. Move somewhere. If you want to get a job in tech, go to San Francisco. You know, but if you want to get a job in affiliate marketing, here are the cities where you’ll want to be in. Number 1 is San Diego. It is the number one City for affiliate marketing. I think the reason it’s come about that way is because the lifestyle. The lifestyle in San Diego, it’s young, it’s fun, it’s… I wouldn’t say it’s cheap anymore. It’s cheaper than San Francisco in LA for sure. There’s a lot of space and the beach is beautiful, the waters warm.
It’s just a great place to live. It’s very hilly, very beautiful. Lots of nature everywhere. Lots of colleges. Great city ,lots of fun, lots of affiliate marketers and affiliate marketing related companies there. The next city I would say is Toronto. I don’t know why Toronto has become a huge hub for affiliate marketing. But it is. There’s a lot of networks there. Convert to media, max bounty. I can’t even think of them all. But there’s a lot of companies out there. Internationally, Amsterdam has become the European hub for affiliate marketing. Lots of affiliate networks and offers there. Other 2 notable cities are New York. There’s just everything in New York. It’s extremely expensive though. And Tampa Bay, Saint Petersburg area in Florida. Again, you have that great lifestyle.
You have commission junction and just a lot of very big affiliate marketing companies that are there. Now, New York, the notable company there I would say his acceleration partners because… I forget his name. But Roberts something. They run the affiliate programs for Uber, for Lyft, for TaskRabbit, Doordash for a lot of really big fortune 500 companies. So, if you’re looking to get going to bizdev, that’s a great place to be. Because all those big companies is fortune 500s and fortune thousands have massive presences in New York. Now, there are a lot of companies and affiliate marketing and they’re spread out worldwide. I’m going to name a smattering of companies that are great to work for in no order whatsoever. So, in San Diego, there’s Ads For Doe or A For D which is run by my friend Jason Akatiff.
Very large affiliate marketing company that works with, you know, media buyers, business development people affiliate managers, etc. In Boise Idaho, there’s ClickBank. One of the oldest companies in affiliate marketing and they have a lot of people. They do billions of dollars in transactions. They have about 50 to a 100 people that work for them up there. You also have commission junction, you have share sale, you have a van gate, you have acceleration partners in New York. There’s a lot of companies out there. But you can do the research on that on your own. Now, if you’re looking to work for a media buyer such as a mega affiliate who’s buying ads and on the front lines of affiliate marketing because maybe you want to be an affiliate marketer yourself. The best way I suggest is actually connecting with them through social media. Some of them such as myself are very active on social media. My company does about 4 million dollars per year. You know I’m a smaller fish in this game. But if you want to work for people like myself, I don’t hire any employees.
Just let you know. But my friends of mine like Carlos Cruz do. Would be to follow them on social media. Some of them maintain blogs or vlogs or Instagram or Twitter or Snapchat. Start following these people when you come across them. Go to conferences. Network with people. Go to conventions. Go to Affiliate Summit. West or East or go to the affiliate world conferences. But meet people in person is going to be your best bet at that. And connect with them through all the social media channels and it won’t be too hard to get a job. But again, to get those really good jobs we’re on the front lines, buying ads, you’re going to need some experience. And you’re also going to need, you know, getting a personal connection is going to help a lot. Did you enjoy this video? Let me know in the comments.
