How To Earn Affiliate Income as a Real Estate Agentfluencer

Objective:

If you’re a real estate agent, then you probably already know that 90% of new agents fail and leave the business by the end of their first year! That’s a BIG problem. My question is why haven’t brokerages come up with a game plan to fix it?

🤔 Not finding an answer from the great wizard of Google, I decided to tackle this problem myself!

One solution that I discovered while exploring the world of content marketing, and began experimenting with, is how to earn affiliate income using product links inside my YouTube video descriptions.

Then my objective became more clear: to earn affiliate income from my CRM database (my farm area lead list) while promoting my brand. How? We make sales by doing Show & Tell, but with household goods!

Video Content:

  1. Food & Beverage: dinnerware, culinary tools, cookware, glasses, wine, groceries, and more!
  2. Birthdays: gift ideas for Mom, Dad, Kids, Teens, friends, co-workers, and neighbors; party themes; invite cards, etc.
  3. Holidays: Valentines, St. Paddy’s Day, July 4th, Cinco de Mayo, Thanksgiving, Christmas & NYE!
  4. Recreation: pool stuff, kayaking, camping, hiking, jogging, barbecue stuff, outdoor bowling, cornhole, etc.
  5. Bedrooms & Bathrooms: towels, towel racks, and toilet paper (oh my)! Linens and things, hehe.

We make sales by doing Show & Tell, but with household goods!

The Framework:

First, start by stating the purpose of your video. Example: For a long time, I wanted to grow out my beard, but I was embarrassed of how old I would look because of all my white hair.

Before

Second, share a personal life story that illustrates how or why you bought product “x” and explain how it solved your problem. Example: But the. I saw this beard coloring kit for men, so I gave it a try. Now I look and feel 20 years younger! I wish I had known about this product before.

After

Third, wrap up your video by including a call to action (CTA). Example: If you’ve been thinking about growing a beard too, or if your husband could use a touch up, then check out this product. I bought it from Amazon here: [product link]. Happy tinting! 😉

That’s a wrap! 🎬

Become a Real Estate Investor, Start Growing Your Real Estate Portfolio

Have you ever dreamed about owning a handful of properties, like playing the game of Monopoly, but in real life? Me too. And with all of the information online, I’m sure you’ve had your share of flipping, wholesaling, and blah, blah, blah advice. Am I right?

Let me give it to you straight, if it were so easy, then everybody would be doing it! The fact is that those investment strategies are oversaturated, you have to have a ton of conversations to get to the one seller who says yes, and you’re probably going to feel like a snake oil salesperson, at best, or a con artist, at worst. You don’t have to join that madness.

The simplest way to get started is to invest in low-cost tax deeds. Some states offer amazing interest rates (18% to 25%) and their bidding sites make it easy to sign up.

My next favorite real estate investment strategy is to acquire short-term rental (STR) properties. This mini business plan introduces you to my strategy for STR Conversions (a book I am writing).
