Here’s How ACCESSTRADE’S Top Publisher MoKA Earns Money During MCO
Mohd Khairul Anuar or MoKA is working in the financial service sector in Kuala Lumpur. The 31-year old blogger loves to travel, food hunt and cook. Apparently, he started affiliate marketing when the government announced the Movement Control Order (MCO) when COVID-19 cases started to rise in Malaysia back in April 2020.
According to Moka, his affiliate marketing journey started without any expectations but surprisingly, yielded great results.
He managed to hit 1,000 conversions and a whopping RM10,000 sales value in just a month after joining ACCESSTRADE Malaysia as an affiliate marketer!
We had the privilege of talking to him all about his journey and his thoughts about affiliate marketing. Read on! He has shared some great tips and tricks too!
MoKA’s early days as an affiliate marketer
Why did you start affiliate marketing?
Since I’m one of the Shopee Ambassadors, I needed to register myself as an ACCESSTRADE Malaysia publisher. During MCO, I started to explore more about ACCESSTRADE Malaysia and attended a webinar that was organised by ACCESSTRADE Malaysia. The sharing and proven results from other affiliate marketers encouraged me to give it a try!
Can you share a little bit about how you got started with affiliate marketing and when you started?
After attending the webinar, I tried to apply the knowledge I learnt. I tried to experiment to see if it works. The first step I did was to share the things I bought from Shopee on my Twitter account @penaberkala. Unexpectedly, the tweet got high hits and gave me a high conversion which contributed to sales and commissions. Then, I encouraged my friends to start affiliate marketing too.
What was interesting about affiliate marketing?
Zero cost! You don’t need to invest anything. Just spend your time promoting the link and encourage people to buy by clicking the link. It is flexible, you can do this anytime and anywhere.
How did you first find out about affiliate marketing?
Shopee Ambassador program and webinar conducted by Nora from ACCESSTRADE Malaysia.
Were you worried that it might be a scam?
At first, yes. I didn’t have any idea how it worked. After understanding the whole process and getting a clear explanation from the ACCESSTRADE team, I changed my perception.
MoKA’s life as an affiliate marketer with ACCESSTRADE Malaysia
Affiliate marketing can be done as a full-time job as well as a part-time job. Whatever you choose to do, affiliate marketing is sure to enhance your life in terms of monetary and experience gains.
How has your life changed since starting affiliate marketing?
I become more open-minded and accepting to affiliate marketing and e-commerce.
What does your regular day look like?
I will keep sharing whatever I bought from Shopee on my social media platform through video or photos. I hope that people will get some valuable information from my sharing and it will help them to decide whether they want to buy the product or not.
Did you manage to influence your friends or family to join affiliate marketing?
Yes, I managed to get a few of my friends to join affiliate marketing. Sometimes, I receive questions from random people about affiliate marketing. I’m more than happy to share my knowledge with anyone who is interested in affiliate marketing.
How is it helping you in terms of finance and career?
It is helping me to grow as a person. It’s new knowledge and adding value for me besides helping me to generate side income.
Do you see yourself doing affiliate marketing in the long run or is it a short stint?
I think I will do affiliate marketing for the long run. E-commerce is highly relevant now and I believe affiliate marketing will be relevant for a very long time too.
MoKA’s tips and tricks to get high conversions
As ACCESSTRADE Malaysia’s top publisher, MoKA has some proven tips and tricks up his sleeves when it comes to affiliate marketing.
How do you create content to promote the products?
Normally, I’ll do live sessions for unboxing on IG. Besides that, I will also post unboxing videos or any video related to products. Sometimes, I use photos to promote the affiliate links. Most of the time, I will use Twitter and Facebook to promote the products.
What are your tips to remain relevant and active on social media platforms?
Keep sharing daily activities with family, friends and followers. Keep them up to date with relevant content and information. Use your social media platform to connect with others by sharing articles, photos, and videos.
What do you think is the key to be a successful affiliate marketer?
A successful affiliate marketer needs to be creative, passionate and dedicated in sharing valuable content on social media platforms. We never know which content will go viral and attract audiences to click on the affiliate links. When that happens, it is a jackpot!
Content is king, number of followers is secondary in affiliate marketing
All journeys come with challenges and challenges are great teachers for a better future. Here are the challenges that MoKA faced that you can learn from.
What were the challenges you faced when you first joined affiliate marketing?
How to encourage people to click my affiliate link? Since I don’t have a big number of followers on social media, it became one of my obstacles. However, I found out that content is king. As long as we can create quality content, it’ll help us to succeed in affiliate marketing. Put aside the number, just keep sharing quality contents.
What are the new challenges you are facing now?
Time! Since I’m a full time office worker, I found out that I don’t have sufficient time to focus on my affiliate marketing. However, I’m still able to get some conversions and commissions every month. To create new content like photos and videos, it requires some effort and time. It is an advantage for those who do this as full time work!
How have you benefited by joining ACCESSTRADE MY?
I gained more knowledge and experience about affiliate marketing. Most importantly, I managed to get side income with zero cost and 100% profit (commission).
If you are curious, here’s MoKA’s advice for you
What advice would you give to people who want to take a leap of faith but are reluctant about trying something new like this?
Just give it a try, nothing to lose!
Expand your knowledge by embarking on new things to keep growing.
Capitalise your followers and influence to generate income.
Don’t waste so much time on social media unless you gain profit from it.
Share your insights and opinions with others, give some values and be relevant!
