Beauty Blog 101: Makeup Affiliate Programs to Help Get You Started

I read the title of this post and I hear a collective groan from our male affiliate marketers. Beauty Blog? Beauty Blog!? Like, what is that?

For all of those not in the know, a beauty blog is a blog with a focus on fashion and makeup. It’s really all about makeup, but some bloggers have expanded to include fashion in their content. After all, a pretty face goes perfectly with a pretty frock.

Beauty blogs publish makeup reviews and product recommendations.  There are hundreds of beauty vlogs in YouTube that show the same content, only in video format. Blog or vlog, it all starts out as a personal repository of one’s experience, likes and dislikes, adventures and misadventures.

I can see a few of our gentlemen readers cringing. I’m sure you’re going to hit that red “X” on the top right of your browser any minute now, but please hear me out. Beauty blogs are big these days, and they’re going to get bigger. You might want to pay a bit of attention (and get your wife or girlfriend to read this post with you!).

So Just How Big is the Makeup Niche?

People love to look good, and it shows: The cosmetics industry is HUGE.

The cosmetics industry is definitely a large one, and despite the Coronavirus pandemic, it continued to remain profitable, particularly the skincare niche as reported by Statista.

There’s a strong need in all of us to look good, and this is why these types of blogs are growing in numbers. They’re not limited to women, either: There are beauty blogs for men, too.

Currently, there are around 45,000 beauty and fashion vlogs on YouTube. These vloggers don’t necessarily have a blog to accompany their vlogs, but they do maintain social media presence in Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. These vloggers get paid by YouTube for getting views and engagement on their content, and they get paid by beauty companies for promoting their products.

With that much revenue and a large following, some of these beauty vloggers have come up with their own makeup line.

The beauty niche is truly lucrative and evergreen.

What is the Competition Like?

A high level of demand often means a high level of competition. That doesn’t mean you can’t do it, you’ve just got to be savvy with your keywords.

You can skip this part and jump right into the makeup affiliate programs you can promote, but I suggest you don’t. There’s plenty of competition in the cosmetics/skincare niche, and it pays to look at how you can outsmart the competition by targeting the right keywords.

To start, we must ask a common question: Is it “makeup” or “make up”? The two are similar; however, “makeup” refers to lipstick, eye shadow and all other things applied to the face, while “make up” is a verb that can refer to the act of applying makeup.

So be more specific when running your keyword search. Check out both spellings and see what numbers come up.

The types of keywords you’ll want to home in on for your website content or ad campaigns should revolve around specific terms with a lot of searches but less competition. In this case, for example, you might want to consider “Makeup looks” or “Wedding makeup” or “natural eye makeup” as keywords for blog topics.

If you go ahead with any of the affiliate program options that I’ve outlined below, make sure to do some further keyword research to ensure your success. If you’re generating keywords to use as content topics, try this method here. The AffiloTools Keyword Research module makes keyword research like this easy, so feel free to check it out and have a play around.

When coming up with keyword ideas for this niche, don’t forget to try “how-to” phrases, such as “how to put on eyeliner.”

How to Promote Your Beauty Blog

No blog promotes itself. These are the best methods for promoting a beauty blog.

A beauty blog is like any other website or blog, and you can promote it through most conventional methods, such as social media marketing. You can’t use every tactic at once, so like I’ve always said, have a link-building plan or strategy guide to get you started. This will help you define your SEO and link-building goals and determine which methods work best for your site. Here are some other methods you can use to promote your beauty blog:

YouTube Marketing

Put all those how-to videos to good use. Make sure your videos are properly optimized and contain either your affiliate link or a link to the related content on your site. You may refer to this excellent information on video marketing: “Video Content: Super Fun! Super Effective.” You can also learn how to link back to your website (if you have one) from YouTube with this lesson on associated website annotations.

Blog and Forum Posting

There are a lot of other beauty blogs. Don’t be a snob! These blogs may be competition, but they are still in the same niche, so participating in discussions will do a lot more good for your site than harm.

Participating in blogs often leads to guest posting, since the website owner or blogger gains enough information about you through your comments to trust you. A guest post is great because it not only brings traffic to the site, but also gives you a backlink or two.

We actually teach you how to promote your site on websites and blogs in AffiloBlueprint, so if you’re interested in this method I’d check that out. It also teaches you how to build your blog, so if you’re thinking you’d like to build a beauty blog but haven’t yet, then I’d most definitely recommend it.

Content Strategy

It’s important that your site is always up-to-date with the current makeup trends as well as popular products. Reading up on what’s new will help with the planning and research of your posts so that you will be able to publish on a regular basis.

We have a whole variety of free lessons on content creation right here, but first I’d check out the blog post about building a strong content strategy here.

Remember that there are also other forms of content, like videos and infographics, that you can create for your site so as not to bore your readers. Keep a working schedule of where and when new posts are published and what they contain.

Having a few make-up tutorials as your core content with some updated info coming out regularly on a blog is a great way to go. This might sound like a lot of work, but new beauty products are coming out all the time. The more you keep your website up to date with the latest and greatest, the more you’ll encourage a following of people looking for MORE MAKEUP.

Email Marketing

Speaking of new products coming out all the time, if you build a mailing list you can make sales to people over and over again rather than losing them when they leave your site. This is especially useful for any niche that has a high rate of new products and deals, and luckily for you, this is one of those niches. You can check out our free lessons on email marketing here.

Can Beauty Blogs Give Way to Pretty Profits?

There are some low commission rates and high competition here which provides a challenge, but there’s a lot of demand for these products so there’s definitely potential.

Looking at the commissions these makeup affiliate programs give to affiliates, this isn’t going to be as lucrative as other niches unless you can get a lot of traffic and sales. In saying that, the popularity of this niche means that there is potential for you to do just that with the right marketing techniques.

You want to aim for a target audience of the kind of readers who like to go for a beauty “haul” (where they purchase lots of products at one time).

To beat out the high competition and conquer the low commission rates of these products, you really will need to constantly update your site with new content so as not to lose your readers and their interest. That’s going to be a major challenge, particularly if you’re not a writer.

Despite all this, a beauty blog is very appealing to me. For one thing, this is a niche where lady affiliate marketers with a passion for makeup and fashion can really dominate. You may not get paid much as far as commissions go, but some of those makeup affiliate programs offer freebies and/or affiliate discounts on makeup purchases that can more than make up for it.

This niche is definitely for those with a love for fashion and makeup. If you’re such a man or woman, then go for it! I’m sure that it’s going to be an enjoyable, rewarding endeavor for you.

Before you go I’d love to ask, do you know of any good makeup affiliate programs that I’ve missed? What types of makeup products are you interested in promoting? Let me know in the comments below.

Featured Image for: 15 Ways to Get Paid to Travel as a Freelancer

Ever wonder how to get paid to travel with pure independence? With the surge of remote jobs, it is easier than ever to achieve. It can be both exhilarating and challenging to be a nomadic freelancer. You are always going somewhere new and discovering new parts of the world, but at the same time, it is important not to forget about your professional obligations.

Some people need to work to make enough money to travel, while others like maintaining a healthy balance between their professional and personal lives while on the road.

How exactly does one get started in the process of seeing the world while simultaneously earning some money? What are the right ideas on how to get paid to travel?

After all, everybody wants money to pay for the necessities along the route, such as food, shelter, and mobility.

This article highlights some freelancing jobs you can take if you want to understand how to get paid to travel.

How to get paid to travel with these 15 jobs

1. Travel Blogger/Writer

Are you looking for ways on how to get paid to travel? Travel blogger tops the choice for our selection. To put it simply, travel writing produces written content about travel-related topics such as destinations, itineraries, activities, restaurants, lodgings, and sights.

Travel writers that can give readers concrete advice are in high demand since modern life requires individuals to read, analyze, and digest content more quickly. Most people have limited time and energy; therefore, it’s important that the information they absorb be useful and concise.

People who enjoy reading about people’s travels and experiences are another common clientele for travel writers. Travel writing is remarkably similar to traditional journalism when viewed through the lenses of geography, culture, history, and religion.

Why not use your time away from home to market your writing talents as a freelance travel writer to online and print publications?

Depending on your experience and expertise, travel writing can pay anywhere from $0.04 cents per word to $0.15 or more per word.

To begin, all you need to do is sign up for a service like Upwork and begin bidding on writing gigs as they become available.

SolidGigs, Fiverr.com, and the ProBlogger.com jobs board are all places you can join up to write for or keep an eye out for writing opportunities.

Construct a client base as soon as possible and amass as many five-star evaluations as possible so that new work can always be brought to you.

2. Tour Guide

Consider working as a walking tour guide if you enjoy acquiring new knowledge about the locations you explore and passing on that information to other people who are also traveling.

Suppose you have a lot of knowledge about the location you will visit. In that case, you can easily plan a route, market your trip online with some of the larger tour operators or the local visitor center offices, and then establish a link for individuals to book it.

You have the option of charging immediately or charging at a later time; either way, your audience should be so impressed that they cannot resist paying you in gold.

3. Flight Attendant

Becoming a flight attendant is among the best careers available to people seeking how to get paid to travel globally.

Flight attendants usually gain experience working on domestic flights before going on to more coveted foreign routes, frequently involving travel to more exotic locations.

You and your family can travel for free if you work as a flight attendant and receive other flying-related advantages. You will have the opportunity to visit various exotic locations as part of your job.

The requirements to become a flight attendant vary from airline to airline, but in general, you need to be physically healthy enough to stand for extended periods and help passengers with their luggage. A background working with customers is another desirable quality to have.

4. Working on a yacht

how to get paid to travel

This is a challenging yet rewarding way to tour the world and see the sights. Working on a yacht has solved many issues for people struggling on how to get paid to travel worldwide.

Depending on the guests’ needs, you may work on a superyacht in various capacities, including as a deckhand, steward, chef, nanny, or teacher.

To get started, you will need a valid medical certificate for ENG1 and some fundamental safety certifications, such as the STCW certification. This certification is necessary for anyone who wants to work on a commercial vessel longer than 24 meters. (The type of qualification required of you will depend on the position aboard the yacht for which you are seeking.)

Many people work aboard superyachts, and even though it can be a glamorous lifestyle, consisting of rubbing elbows with the affluent and famous and traveling to some of the most beautiful sites across the globe, it is hard work.

It’s possible that working aboard a yacht with an amazing captain and crew could be the most enjoyable job you’ve ever had. Things can go from bad to worse very quickly if you aren’t getting along with the other crew members and you get unfavorable guests.

Before beginning this line of employment, you should ensure that you have done all of the research necessary and that you are well-prepared for any contingency.

5. Consultant

Working as a professional consultant can provide an excellent opportunity to see the world.

You will work on projects with clients located all over the country and even the world if you decide to pursue a career as a consultant. Consultants will normally be on the move every Monday through Thursday during a project.

This is an excellent method to build up airline miles and hotel points while at the same time getting out and doing some sightseeing at the same time.

You will normally require a bachelor’s degree in a field such as business, economics, or marketing to work as a consultant.

6. Travel agent

Some specialize in pleasure travel, and others specialize in business travel. Both options are wonderful careers for folks who enjoy being on the move.

Brokers specializing in leisure travel sell trips to individuals, whereas corporate travel agents arrange business itineraries.

Hotels, flights, and holiday packages can all be discounted when booked through a travel agent. They might also receive the opportunity to go on FAM tours, also known as familiarization trips, to gain more knowledge about the locations they are selling.

7. Virtual Assistant

One of the best careers for people who enjoy traveling is to become a virtual assistant because it allows them to work from anywhere in the world and on their terms regarding their work schedule. This paves the way for you to live the lifestyle of a digital nomad, where you travel the world while working from your computer wherever you are.

As a virtual assistant, often known as a VA, you can offer a wide variety of services to clients, including management of social media platforms, bookkeeping, freelance writing, and management of email communications, amongst others.

You are responsible for finding your clients as a self-employed virtual assistant. Fortunately, there is a significant need for virtual assistants, so you should have no trouble finding plenty of work.

8. Travel Nurse

If you are considering a career in nursing and enjoy exploring new places, you should consider being a travel nurse.

A degree in nursing from an accredited school is required to work as a travel nurse (registered nurse.) Then you are qualified to apply for jobs, which can last anywhere from one to thirteen weeks at a time.

9. Publishing and selling guidebooks

Why not turn your passion for writing about the places you go and what you do into a series of travel guides if you enjoy documenting your adventures?

You can publish your books using the Amazon KDP program or generate your print-on-demand publications using a platform like luluexpress.com and market your guidebooks on your webpage.

Amazon is a terrific research tool that can tell you what kinds of guidebooks are selling well. You can use this information to choose which ones to write.

Then, organize your next trip to center around creating your book. During this trip, visit, evaluate, and write about the locations you want to share.

Lay your book together, have a fantastic cover designed for it, and then either publish it to one of the platforms that cater to book sales or save it as a PDF that customers can download after purchasing your book.

10. Travel videographer

how to get paid to travel

Do you enjoy creating videos and editing them in your spare time? If this describes you, a job as a travel videographer may be the perfect fit for you.

As a videographer, there are two different ways for you to make money while you are on the road:

  • You should create films for your own social media channels, work on growing a following, and become a travel influencer.
  • Showcase your outstanding trip movies online, and hotels and other travel companies will pay you to create promotional videos for them.

If you are skilled in drone videography, that would be even better because it is the most popular form of videography nowadays.

To get started, record and edit several high-quality films when traveling around different places.

After publishing those films on your website or social media accounts, you can use them to begin to interact with and expand your following. Alternatively, you can email links to your social media accounts to various hotels and travel firms to secure any available paid work.

You may also offer to record a video advertisement in exchange for a free or discounted stay or trip by stating that you would want to do so in exchange for the opportunity.

To put it another way, you are not getting paid to travel in this manner, yet, if you can travel by exchanging your services for transportation and lodging, it is essentially the same thing.

11. Travel photographer

Are you looking for channels on how to get paid to travel? Becoming a travel photographer, much like a travel videographer, is an excellent way to make money while traveling worldwide.

Again, you can either use your photography abilities to establish a following and become an influential figure in the travel industry, or you may sell your services to hotels and other travel organizations.

Nevertheless, other than selling your photographs, there are a few other possibilities for you to profit from your hobby.

A few examples of them are as follows:

  • Create a travel blog where you discuss both the destinations you visit and the pictures you take while there.
  • Constructing and peddling travel photography tutorials.
  • Making money by providing your expertise to other blogs, media outlets, or tour operators.
  • Creating and expanding an online print-on-demand shop using your photographs.

12. Travel influencer

You may grow and build a massive audience that loves to follow your travels even with subpar filming and photography skills if you tell stories and share great experiences from places worldwide.

Get started with your social media expansion by selecting the platform where you will be most active and then beginning to share relevant content like photos, videos, and updates.

Maintain a regular posting schedule and active interaction with your growing audience.

Give out a freebie or make some fun travel quizzes to start creating your email list of subscribers if you don’t want to rely solely on social media for expansion.

As your business expands, you’ll be able to use your subscriber list to send out things like affiliate travel deals, information on new items, and word about related channels.

13. Brand Ambassador

If you have a large social media following or run a popular travel podcast or blog, this will come more easily to you.

To put it simply, you act as a spokesperson for a business that employs you to increase its brand’s visibility in the public eye.

Suppose you’ve amassed a sizable following due to your travels and are confident that you can add significant value to a brand that speaks to your followers. In that case, you should contact that company to inquire about potential collaboration opportunities.

They may give you a flat fee for promoting their business, propose a product co-creation partnership, or provide you with a referral link that will pay you a commission for every purchase made by a viewer of your post who clicks on it.

14. Affiliate marketing

How to get paid to travel is a big concern to many individuals nowadays, right? One viable option for making money in the digital space is to enter the affiliate marketing industry. Making a promotional website to advertise a different company’s goods is a common tactic.

After launching a website, you should look for things you’re excited to promote to your audience. You will earn a commission on any consumer sales directly from your marketing efforts.

There are many opportunities for growth and success in the affiliate marketing industry. For example, it has low barriers to entry and can grow quickly. However, you must find the right affiliate marketing program for your needs.

15. YouTuber

Are you a digital nomad looking for ways on how to get paid to travel? Digital nomads with the right mindset can have much fun and make money with YouTubing.

However, while making travel videos might seem the most sensible option, it’s not your only one (and it might even “destroy” travel for you). An online channel can be created for any topic of interest.

But much like blogging, if you want to make any money at it, you must put in a lot of work at the outset. To join YouTube’s monetization program and earn money from your videos, you need at least 1,000 subscribers. Nothing of the sort happens instantly.

Of course, monetizing your videos with ads isn’t the only option for bringing in cash with YouTube. Promoting your goods and services on your channel is another viable option (or affiliate products).

Start making money while traveling

Do you want to know how to get paid to travel as a freelancer? One might find several compensated travel opportunities in the job market. Jobs in this category range from blogging and destination marketing to photography, writing, networking, and social media influence.

Hopefully, this list has given you ideas on how to get paid to travel. Have fun!

Top 5 eBay Price Tracker Tools & Services for Resellers in 2023

Top 5 eBay Price Tracker Tools & Services for Resellers in 2023

An eBay price tracker can help resellers level up their business from dropshipping to selling rare items at auction. These price trackers exist to help give eBay sellers the information they need to properly price their items and ultimately have a successful online business.

To help you choose the right one for you, let’s dive into the top five eBay price tracker services for resellers.

The Best eBay Price Tracker Services for Your Reseller Business

You don’t have to do everything on your own as an online seller on eBay. To help make your pricing decisions easier, here is our list of the top 5 eBay price tracker services:

Terapeak

Terapeak is a great tool all eBay sellers have access to since eBay owns it!

Using a tool made by the site you’re selling on is a great place to start. This site provides pricing and sale information for up to one year in the past for each item. You can also filter listings by condition and country.

When you have to conduct research on topics like the best things to sell on eBay, it’s nice to have a tool that’s already available and easily accessible.

How to Access Terapeak on eBay

To access Terapeak, visit your Seller Hub and find the “Research” page.

Are you looking for more reselling opportunities on additional platforms? Our list of 12 sites like eBay will help you get started.


WatchCount

WatchCount is one of the most comprehensive price-tracking tools for eBay sellers. It enables you to search for current and sold listings based on various factors. These factors include sales prices, items with the highest number of watchers, listings with the most bids, misspelled titles, and more.

The best part of all is that it’s free!

eBay price tracker

The additional features that WatchCount provides can help give resellers an advantage. By knowing which listings have the highest number of bids and watchers, resellers can understand which listings are most popular or if an item isn’t very popular at all.

Another important feature of this app is being able to check for misspelled listings. This means that you could find items that other resellers and price trackers might not catch!


Average Finder

Average Finder is another eBay price tracker that shows your item’s average price based on what’s currently listed. You can still search based on active and completed listings and by country.

eBay price tracker

One of the unique reasons Average Finder is a helpful tool is that it also shows you the average shipping costs for the item. This can help you see what other sellers list as their postage costs and what buyers are willing to pay. Shipping costs can make or break a sale, and this can give you insight into how you should price your shipping.


Mark Sight

Mark Sight is an insightful tool for resellers who primarily run auctions for their reselling business. It will show you accurate results, the best time to start and end your auction, sell-through rates, the average number of bids, and more.

In addition to being an eBay price tracker, MarkSight also provides educational resources for resellers. Instead of figuring everything out on your own in your reselling business, you can turn to these articles for in-depth information.

MarkSight does have a free option, but its more in-depth and resourceful features are not part of the free access. This will have to factor into your decision to invest in it for your reselling business.

This tool provides value in a different way from the other eBay price trackers on this list, but it’s still valuable to include for those resellers who rely heavily on auctions for their businesses.


CheckAFlip

CheckAFlip is fifth on our list of eBay price trackers. This site lets you compare current and completed eBay and Amazon listings. It will show you the average sold price for both new and used versions of that item, including how many new and used listings there currently are.

What makes Check A Flip unique is that it gathers its data in the moment, meaning you might need to wait up to one minute for the results to tabulate.

This is a more basic eBay price tracker, but it could work for your needs depending on what your reselling business requires. If you’re looking for a straightforward tool for tracking prices, CheckAFlip could be right for you.

Ways Resellers Can Benefit from Using an eBay Price Tracker

Whether you’re searching for a deal or looking to gather market data for your listings, an eBay price tracker provides a variety of benefits. Creating an account with one of these helpful price trackers could make the difference between a successful reseller endeavor and one that doesn’t perform very well.

Let’s explore the top three ways resellers can benefit from using an eBay price tracker.

Gain Insight on How to Price Your Items

One of the reasons buyers and sellers alike enjoy purchasing items from eBay is that you can find truly unique and niche items. However, knowing how to price rare items can sometimes be difficult when you’re a seller. This is where an eBay price tracker can be beneficial for sellers.

An eBay price tracker will show you your item’s current price data and pricing history. This gives sellers a more thorough understanding of how they should price their eBay items.

Product Flippers Can Find Great Deals

Depending on your goal for the platform, one of the biggest benefits of using an eBay price tracker is finding great deals! Finding the best deals as a buyer will also help you when you’re reselling these items.

Users can tailor their notifications to meet their specific price requirements. This means they will be notified when an item becomes available at their desired price.

For example, you can set up a notification for a specific item with 15 minutes left in its auction and is under a certain price. This means that you will be notified about items with great prices and potentially low competition.

You can also create a notification when new listings become available on the app. This means you will be one of the first to know if one of your desired items becomes available at a great price. Sometimes novice sellers list items way below their market value, or sometimes they just want to move them quickly, so they underprice them. By having these notifications set up, you can benefit from low prices.

Update Your Pricing to Protect Your Margins

eBay price trackers can be particularly beneficial for drop shippers because they allow sellers to update their pricing in real-time. If you dropship items from Amazon and the price increases but haven’t increased your eBay listings, you could potentially lose money on your items.

On the other hand, it also alerts you to price drops so you can offer sales to your buyers and stay competitive in the search results.

A price tracker could make all the difference when eBay dropshipping!

Final Thoughts on Finding the Best eBay Price Tracker

An eBay price tracker can help improve your reselling business by protecting your margins, alerting you to great deals to flip, and helping you find the right prices for your items.

If you’re an eBay seller who hasn’t previously used one of these tools, now is a great time to start! Your future sales reports will thank you.
