    Hello Everyone!

    Ok so this has been on my mind for a little while now. I want to know how affiliates are making money from product reviews they do on YouTube. I know one guy who continues to rank on the first page of Google for his videos, but all he is doing is taking the products sales video and slabbing the word review in the title and description. He is not actually reviewing the product himself. How is he making money from this? At least I assume he is making money because he keeps doing it over and over. He puts he affiliate link in the description of his videos, and he is not redirecting to a website. How would one do a video review of a product when they do not own products themselves?

    That's easy, you already mentioned all the process.
    Just make a product's review video then write a shot description & leave a affiliate link. Then give real views & share on social sites as much as possible & build quality links also to rank video. Keyword research & product choosing is the main part. I used to promote ClickBank Products in YouTube.

    I've done this before but instead of adding the affiliate link from YouTube, directed the traffic to our website, then to Amazon from there...it works however you'll want to use real useful info about the products and give the viewer a feeling that your not just acting as a doorway, otherwise you'll get a ton of thumbs down, which won't do any good for your rankings or conversions :) You don't need to own the product for you to put out information about it, just do your research! Also if you do a video, add good music to the background, your likely to get better engagement.
