Great stuff. But first, let’s go over the basics:
What is Affiliate Marketing & How Can you Earn?
Here’s my definition of affiliate marketing that is the easiest to understand:
Affiliate marketing is getting paid a commission for promoting other people’s products or services online through your unique link.
Below are 3 common ways you can earn an affiliate commission.
Some of these terminologies can get technical, but bear with me, as you’ll hear this frequently throughout the affiliate marketing community:
CPS: Cost Per Sale — Earn for a referred sale
Example: 1% on each referred sale. You’ll earn USD 1 for each referred sale of a USD 100 affiliate product
CPA: Cost Per Acquisition — Earn for a customer lead
Example: Earn USD 5 for each form sign up or app download
CPUC: Cost Per Unique Click — Earn for each unique click
Example: Earn 2 cents for each unique click
The most common commission method is CPS — Earn for a referred sale, which is what the rest of the article discusses.
My Affiliate Marketing Examples — See them Live!
You’ve probably seen this in action on social media or a YouTube product review, the person will ask you to click on a link to purchase their recommendations.
Here’s how I promoted a robot vacuum on my YouTube video review:
If you were to click on my links & buy the product, I would earn an affiliate commission for that sale.
Here’s another example of me promoting motorcycle accessories on Twitter:
Bonus: Let’s say your audience clicks on your link and doesn’t buy the product you recommend but buys something else; I still get an affiliate commission. Nice!
It’s safe to say that in 2022, you’ve probably seen affiliate marketing in action in one form or another.
Most online brands nowadays will have their affiliate program.
You can register as an affiliate partner with these individual brands directly to help promote products & services sold on their websites.
Sounds great, but it doesn’t work for beginners. Here’s why:
- Tedious Sign-Ups: You’ll have to sign up for these brands individually. Example: Lazada, Shopee, Grab, Zalora, etc.
- Affiliate Rejection: Unless you have thousands of followers, your affiliate application will not be entertained.
- No Guidance: Most affiliates are new to the game & need some form of guidance on what to do & promote. The brands will not have any tutorials as they expect you to be good at what you do.
So that’s when Involve Asia comes in & helps to solve all the problems above.
So Who is Involve Asia?
Involve Asia is an affiliate network with over 4,000+ brands ready to promote & earn.
You can think of them as the middle person between you (the affiliate partner) & the multiple brands you want to promote online.
Like any middle person, they will take a small cut of your earnings, but from my experience, their pros outweigh their cons:
- I can quickly get approved as an affiliate Partner with Involve. Then I can promote any brands within their network.
- I can track & compare my affiliate performance in 1 convenient dashboard.
- Free Tutorials on how to earn online from affiliate marketing are available on their blog & Academy.
Not to mention that despite having decent viewers, readership, and followers, I keep getting rejected by the Shopee Affiliate Program.
Involve Asia enables me to bypass the idiotic requirement of some of these brands’ affiliate programs.
Which Brands Can You Promote with Involve?
The table below shows some popular brands that I think are easy to recommend, organized by category or niche:
Beginner Tip: If you’re new, I highly recommend you start promoting products sold on popular marketplaces in your country. For example, in Malaysia, Shopee & Lazada is extremely popular. So promoting products from there would give you the highest chance of an affiliate conversion.
The Secret Formula for Affiliate Marketing Success
OK, so now you’re intrigued & want a slice of that affiliate pie.
Here is my 4 step formula for affiliate marketing success:
- Identify a product that you think is useful for your audience
- Find a popular website that is selling that product in your country (i.e., Shopee, Lazada, or Tokopedia)

- Create content & convince your audience to click on your Involve link & buy your recommendations.
So if any of your audience clicks on your Involve links & ends up buying it, you’ll earn an affiliate commission!

Once you’ve generated your unique Involve link, the next step is to encourage your audience to click on it & buy your product recommendations.
But let’s get real for a moment.

You need to make your audience like & trust you first.
In my experience, the best way to get people to trust your recommendations is to review the product you want to recommend.
