How To Apply For Pongoshare

Interested in tapping into the billion-dollar affiliate marketing industry? According to Statista, business cost on affiliate marketing will hit $8.2 billion in the U.S by 2022.

Start today, and you’ll be in a main position to take advantage of that.

What is affiliate marketing?

Affiliate marketing is when you promote other companies’ products. When someone buys through your personal affiliate link, you get a commission.

As an affiliate, you’re a salesperson for the brand. You help to make a sale, the company rewards you.

The best thing about affiliate marketing is that you can do it at scale. A typical salesman only sells products from one company. As an affiliate marketer, you can promote products from various companies and earn commissions from all of them.

How does affiliate marketing work?

The merchant gives each affiliate a unique link so they can track who was responsible for a sale. When someone clicks that link, a small file called a cookie gets stored on their device.

An affiliate cookie does two things:

It helps the merchant attribute the sale back to the right person;

It (usually) holds an expiration date, so you get paid even if the consumer delays their purchase.

Here’s an example of how this works.

Imagine that a reader visits your post about the best winter shoes. They click on one of your affiliate links, leading them to a product on Amazon.

But they realized they have to do another thing, like picking up their daughter from school. So they leave their house, pick up their daughter, have dinner, and then finally go back to Amazon where they find the product again.

Since they’re already shopping on Amazon, they decide to purchase some ski gear too.

Here’s the good news. Earlier, they clicked on your affiliate link and a cookie was stored on their device. Because Amazon has a 24-hour cookie duration, you get compensated for both the winter shoes and ski gear—even though you didn’t promote the latter.

How much money can I make as an affiliate marketer?

The simple answer is that there is no limit. It depends on your niche and the amount of effort you put in.

The most successful affiliate marketers make six or seven figures a month.

For example, Pat Flynn from Smart Passive Income made over $100,000 in affiliate commissions in December 2017.

Keep in mind even though that these people have done an excellent job building their reputation. It’s taken them years of hard work to reach this achievement.

You need to manage your expectations. You won’t earn the big bucks right off the bat, but don’t let this discourage you.

The success of others tells you that with hard work, time, and the right knowledge, you can probably reach those levels as well.

How to get started with affiliate marketing

  1. Decide on a platform

Actually, you can do affiliate marketing on any platform. Even Instagram works. However, it’s much easier to build a followe and increase your affiliate sales via one of two channels: a blog or YouTube channel.

Starting a blog today is relatively easy and cheap. There are plenty of templates online that teach you how to get started.

Once your site is up, optimize it for search engines so that you have a better chance of ranking. From there, you’re free to add affiliate links in your content. There is an art to doing this.

The other platform is YouTube. Creating and uploading content to YouTube is free, which makes it ideal for many people. Optimize your videos for SEO, and include affiliate links in your description.

What should you note is that you’ll need to disclose the fact that you’re including affiliate links. The Federal Trade Commissions (FTC) requires you to be transparent when receiving income from an endorsement.

  • Choose your style

To be honest: if you’re starting a blog today, you’re facing a ton of competition. Statista estimates that the number of bloggers in the U.S will reach 31.7 million by 2020.

To stand the best chance of success, niche down.

Choose a topic that focuses on a specific category. For example, the topic of “food” is an enormous category. Rather than tackling that, try something more specific, like grilling food.

Keeping your topics tight can help you build a more focused audience and potentially help you rank higher in search engines. That’s what I did when I built my first site. Instead of talking about “dance” or “hip hop,” I decided to limit myself to just breakdancing.

Now, if you’re going to be the main content creator, choose something you’re interested in.

  • Find affiliate programs to join

Which affiliate programs to join? This depends on your niche and level of expertise.

I recommend the Pongoshare most. Unlike rewardStyle platforms, Pongoshare is not somewhat exclusive because you could apply and get accepted into the program automatically. That means, if you apply for it, you could be one of the influencers of Pongoshare.

With higher commision, it offers multiple products, brands, and retailers on their site, allowing bloggers to share affiliate links on multiple social platforms.

Pongoshare does not have an unique app, no need to download.

First of all, you need to sign up and create an account on Pongoshare website. Then, choose products. Once your account is created, you can choose the product you like in the product pool and create your personalized referral link. Commissions are tied to your unique links. At last, share your links and start earning.

Share your referral links on your blog, social media posts, in your e-mails, or wherever you’d like and watch the commissions roll in! Users can search and follow their favorite bloggers, search for shoppable inspiration, and save items to their wishlist all within their like-to-use platform.

Final thoughts

Just don’t expect life-changing income or the freedom to quit your work overnight. Affiliate marketing takes time.

Focus first on making your first affiliate sale. As your site grows, set new goals, and continue experimenting.

How Much Does Pongoshare Pay

If you’re considering the Pongoshare affiliate program, then you may be wondering how does Pongoshare work exactly?

Pongoshare is a multi-categories affiliate network for bloggers and Instagram influencers. As a way for brands to compensate bloggers for the promotional work they do online. The original idea of PongoShare is to simultaneously help both brands and lifestyle influencers monetize the digital space. Today, Pongoshare works with more than 250 team members, 200,000+ top-tier influencers, and 600 brand partners across more than 30 countries and it’s one of the foremost lifestyle marketing platforms.

Pongoshare offers two main revenue streams for publishers that have been accepted to their platform: affiliate commissions and collaborations. I’ll go over how each one works in this article!

Affiliate Commissions from Brands

Pongoshare offers its members a commission of each sale they generate for a valid deal. When an influencer posts content on their blog or Instagram, they add Pongoshare-referred links to any products featured for their readers to click through if they are interested. And there is limited time bonus: PongoShare Influencers will receive a bonus for each click on the promoted links before June.1st ($0.02-$0.05 per click).

There are some of the more popular brands available on the Pongoshare platform. Pongoshare commission rates can vary but most up to 30% or sometimes more of the total product purchase. That means that if you use a Pongoshare link to generate a $100 sale from one of your followers, and that brand offers a 7% commission, you’ll be paid $7 by that brand.

Pongoshare commissions are driven by clicks and thus, there are several ways to create links using Pongoshare tools.

Text Links

The simplest way to add Pongoshare links is by including in your blog post text. After you login the Pongoshare, you will find the homepage is the most user-friendly experience, there is a Tool in the menu bar. Click on Tool, you could see three options, then click “Link Transfer”. Then, you can paste URL which sells things you prefer to recommend to your followes and do not contain text besides link. Keep in mind, one URL per time and without any other text.

Link Picker

Pongo link picker allows influencers to easily create affiliate links directly on the supported pages. When you login with your Pongo account, the tool will check if the link is supported. It will light up for a supported page and you will be able to obtain the tracking link, or remain gray for a not supported page. For a supported one, there will show a toolbar at the top of the page. You can get the basic product information and copy promotional link directly from the toolbar. Supported Pages Include:

1. All Amazon US & Aliexpress products which with valid commission

2. Brand-site products on Pongoshare

Collaborations with Brands

Pongoshare also works as a middleman between brands and influencers to organize collaborations. These usually involve the influencers creating content and sharing it with their followes. Most often, a selection of products is free given to the influencers with high performances of clicks and orders are entitled, as well as with diverse and large social media channels can also be invited and enjoy this benefit. From there, the influencers is responsible for creating multiple, unique images and promoting them through their social media and marketing channels.

These products are typically sponsorship from local & international brands and the product is sent directly to the influencer.

How does Pongoshare work for Payments?

Balance needs to be withdrawn manually, min of $20, each withdrawal needs to be requested manually. After the review is passed, we will send the payment within 7-15 business days after the withdrawal application is initiated, and the payment will be sent to the associated payment method. Three supported payment platforms are Paypal, OVO and GoPay.

How to get into Pongoshare?

Pongoshare is a professional affiliate site that offers a wide variety of marketing campaigns to influencers, who will receive commissions or rewards for completing the campaigns as required. These brands and merchants sell a wide range of products, cosmetics, baby products, jewelry, clothing accessories, electronics, etc. Unlike rewardStyle platforms, Pongoshare is not somewhat exclusive so you could apply and get accepted into the program automatically. Pongoshare is a web-based platform, so you have no need to download dedicated app.

How to choose affiliate links and add them to your site?

Certainly, your website is concentrated to a particular topic, but it’s highly likely that it is still diversified. Normally, bloggers publish different kinds of content such as articles, reviews, descriptions and much more. There is no sense to implement the same offer in the various types of content. For example, if you post news, search or subscription form will be more pertinent than the text link. On the other hand, if you write a review using a comparison chart, the text link will do its job.

When thinking of how to use affiliate links, don’t overcrowd them with content. All your updates should have an implication or significance.

Track the popularity of your posts and insert links only in the articles in demand. Use Google Analytics to see the traffic for every post and choose the most frequently visited sites to add links there. This method gives you the opportunity to add links to the old posts without creating new content too often.

I hope this article will help you learn about blogging income and affiliate commission on the Pongoshare platform. If you still have any doubts, send me DMs and I will be happy to answer!
