What Can You Write About?

You need to determine if you have something to say that others are likely to read or watch.

If you already have a web site that you are looking to monetize then an affiliate partnership is a great choice. If you are looking to see how to make money online using your knowledge of finance and investments, then a trading affiliate is a great choice.

You don’t have to have a web site, although it is helpful.

Once you have a website up and running or have posted several items on social media, you can find an affiliate partner in the trading sector. The best partners are those that are brokers and pay for new customers who will trade.

Once your affiliate partner approves your website or social media platform, they will provide you with a link to their website.

You need to embed the link they provide you in to your web site or social media posts. This link will bring your readers or watchers directly to your affiliate partners web site and track those clients as they move about your partner’s web site. If the clients you send to your affiliate partner deposits capital and make a trade, you will get paid.

How Do You Get Paid?

You will get paid if a trade is transacted. Brokers are leery of deposits where there are no trades generated.

Brokers want to make sure there is a real client that has deposited capital, and their confirmation is a deposit and a trade.

Summary

To become an affiliate partner of an online trading partner, you need to have a client base that likes what you have to say.

You can then set up a web site or post social media commentary, where you can embed a link that will bring your clients to your affiliate partners. Once your traffic deposits capital and makes a trade, you will get paid for that new client.
