Earn a Passive Income

Earn a Passive Income

If you love doing something and sharing your story over social media such as Instagram, Twitter, Facebook or YouTube. Why not Earn a Passive Income from it ?

I’m going to start at the real basics here. Then work my way through as much as I can.

What is a “Passive Income” ?

A passive income is a method of earning money for something after you have done one initial piece of work. Essentially a way of earning money without spending additional time.

In this day and age a true way of earning a passive income is often misunderstood and misled. For example, renting a property is described as a passive income but in reality it is a lot of financial expense and time. In reality if you can grow a decent following on social media it will possibly take less time, definitely cost less money and potentially generate more income than letting your house.

Think about the reach and channels you already have. Is this something you actively want to grow. Do you not want to go further than friends & family. Either way this is OK.

What is Affiliate Marketing ?

Affiliate Marketing is a way of earning a passive income. Furthermore it is one of the easiest ways to earn a passive income.

In our Affiliate program, we do all the hard work. We make all the soaps, we package them, we store them, then ship them. All you need to do as an affiliate is put your creative hat on, add a link or caption to your website, videos, emails, social posts and visit your dashboard to see how much money you are earning. You don’t have to do something grand every time, it could be as easy as creating a short video to add to your regular videos or dropping a section with your link on to your website.

Why would you pay me for this ?

Paid advertising costs a fortune. In addition it yields terrible results and we are lucky to even cover the costs of it. Rather than spend all of our profits fuelling large companies I choose to give that money back to the content creators. Some of the best content at the moment comes via real creative people on YouTube so I would prefer to help you achieve your goals in return for a little advertising.

If you think Grizzly Bars fits your lifestyle and ethics then why not have a go. Furthermore, with a brand that clicks with you, it is likely to resonate with your audience.

Affiliate marketing means I do not have to raise my prices to cover costly adverts. In current times this is important to me, I feel as though sustainable products should be available for everybody. By raising prices to customers we are potentially excluding people from being able to afford certain items. This is a strong reason for us to use more cost effective methods and find ways of reducing cost to sustain our value to customers.

Finally, I am also terrible at advertising. Finding time to get creative and do something is hard work when running a business. At this moment I don’t have the biggest following on Instagram and find it hard to make time to grow. Currently this is OK, my job is to build a brand. Although this is hard work it is a lot easier with support from great people to help me reach a larger audience. In addition, I am not at the stage of being able to employ a marketing team so every little helps.

Who does Affiliate Marketing work for ?

No matter the size of your audience or chosen platform, Affiliate marketing can work for you. All I ask for is a little time and in return you can start to earn a passive income.

In addition to paying, we will start to add a library of resources for Affiliates to make your tasks easier. Although I do enjoy the unique creativity and spin each one of you can add to our products and feel this will give more effective results for you in the long term.

Our affiliate program is currently open to everybody. Sign up today and try it out for yourself.

How much of a passive income can I earn ?

There are no limits. With this affiliate program you will earn as much as you can sell for us. The Sky really is the limit and if you have a large reach on any platform you could potentially earn a lot of money. Many people do this for a full time living and earn a competitive income from it. Although I can’t guarantee how much you will make, I can promise that you will be able to track your earnings and I will pay as much as I can reasonably afford to.

For all soaps I am offering a larger percentage than I make after postage, VAT and corporation tax. There is of course the cost of maintaining the equipment and ingredients to make my soaps. As I said earlier, I would much rather pay real people to do what they love than fund large organisations.

Earning a Passive Income in Summary

If you want to earn an ongoing income with no limits then why not sign up for free and see how you get along.

Invest a little time and it could pay off greatly in the long term. Invest more time and this could pay a full living wage for you. In preference I would prefer to fund your hobby over lining the pockets of a large advertising platform. I have previously fallen for this and seen no results.

Lastly, please try our new range of soaps, these will be gradually released over the coming months and it would be awesome to see some great content featuring it.

Why we prefer Affiliates to Paid Advertising

Why we prefer Affiliates to Paid Advertising

With paid advertising it is a very competitive area. A lot of the money is simply wasted and there is little reward. In building this business I have decided to go purely down the affiliate marketing route. This post is all about Why we prefer Affiliates to Paid Advertising.

What are the Advantages of Affiliate Programs ?

It is easy to assume that an Affiliate Program is simply cheaper than Paid Advertising. It is but this is not all about money. When we use Affiliates there is an inherent level of trust between the advertiser and the potential customer. We also reach a greater audience and get seen in markets wider than if we pay for a specific set of keywords in Google. In addition we pay enthusiasts and content creators rather than one large corporation. Affiliates can add their own level of creativity and appeal to a wider audience.

  • More cost effective than paid advertising.
  • Helping Real people to fund their Hobbies.
  • Greater Reach.
  • Larger variation of advertising.
  • Honest reviews and opinions.
  • Help upcoming Athletes gain experience of marketing.
  • Make the effects of Social Media more visible.

What are the Advantages for Affiliates ?

Our Affiliates will earn a percentage of all sales generated through the links they publish.

You want more ? OK… The best performing Affiliates each year will be rewarded for all their hard work. In addition we will give out samples and pre-release products to some of our Affiliates. There will be a discount scheme coming. You also get to smell nice.

Being an Affiliate can be a very easy way to earn money. If you already have a following on Social Media then this could be a very easy way to generate some extra income. There is also no financial outlay, no minimum requirements and no commitment to carry on in the event you decide this is not for you. However, you could generate a very good passive income and fund what you love doing most.

What is wrong with Paid Advertising ?

The problem I found with paid advertising is that there is usually little reward for a large outlay. It is very difficult to break even, sometimes you even lose money. Advertising is not as trustworthy as a recommendation from a real person too.

Paid Advertising does work for some people but personally, I find you have to throw a lot of money at it. I would rather give this money to real people and support others. Furthermore without a huge advertising I can keep prices for consumers fairly low which benefits everybody. I have been down the route of paid advertising with my main website and found benefits to be very minimal.

In summary the biggest reason why we prefer Affiliates to Paid Advertising is to give back to real people rather than to hand lots of money to a company.

Becoming an Affiliate

Becoming an Affiliate

Early on I decided the best way to promote this venture was to give back to the enthusiasts. This is why there is an affiliate program. Why not support the people who love adventures by paying for marketing ? This is all about Becoming an Affiliate.

Why would I want to become an Affiliate ?

If you love what you do and want to earn an extra bit of money to support you in doing what you do then this is an ideal opportunity for you. You will earn a percentage of every sale made through your own links. You can monitor how much you make through the dashboard on this website and see how much you can earn. It is free to sign up and there are no minimum requirements for number of posts/type of posts. You just do you.

Earning money with no strings attached is a rare opportunity. You will get back as much as you put into this. It will help to already have a huge following on social media but this is not a requirement. It really is as simple as spreading your referral link around and making some money from all the sales you generate.

OK, What do I need to do ?

You simply have to sign up for an account on this website. Generate an Affiliate link on the dashboard. Send it to friends, family, followers and earn a portion of all the purchases they make.

There is no need to post updates on a schedule, do a minimum amount of work or deal with posting/packing/stocking.

Important Links:

What If I sell the most in a year ?

If you perform well we will give extra rewards, If you are the best there is definitely a bonus/prize to be earned which will be determined by overall sales.

Some of the best performing affiliates will be selected to receive samples ahead of launch and other freebies. In addition we are looking towards moving some of the best affiliates over to where you can also earn money by promoting our range of sustainable clothing.
