Hi, @Emilygemi54!

Thanks for reaching out in our Community forums and sharing your concern. I’m happy to help out.


It's awesome to hear that you're interested in starting your journey as in affiliate marketing. You will definitely want to start out by figuring out which platform you would like to mainly focus on, and will want to curate your content based on the market that you'd like to target. For example, If you’re an educator, you can integrate affiliate partnership offers into your events. You can create digital content for a niche industry and work with companies within that market as well.


I encourage you to check out our complete guide that goes over what affiliate marketing is, different types. how to start, and a detailed FAQ section. On the other side, we also have a guide on How To Create a Successful Affiliate Program which will provide some insight on what goes into the behind the scenes of managing this program. 


Let me know how that goes!

Hi @Emilygemi54 

This is Richard from PageFly - Landing Page Builder App. I'd like to provide my answer:


Method 1: Replacing The “Add to cart” Button With A Contact Link

This method mainly includes four broad steps, which have been detailed for you below.

  • 01. Create a Brand New Product Template
  • 02. Create a New Product Section
  • 03. Hide the Add to Cart Button:  While still on the product-template-requires-contact.liquid Section file, locate the HTML code for Product form, wrap it in {% comment %} and {% endcomment %} liquid tags, and then click Save.

- A quick tip: use the find command from your keyboard by either clicking CTRL + F keys on PC or Control + F on Mac and type the words “product-form” in the search box.

04. Add the Contact Link: Once the Add to cart button is hidden, you can now add your preferred contact link. This can either be in the form of an email address or a contact form.


Method 2: How to Add and Sell Amazon Product Affiliates
Before you get access to start adding product affiliates from Amazon, you’ll first need to have an approved Amazon Associate account.


I also want to recommend you some affiliate marketing apps: Social Snowball, UpPromote, Affiliatly, Refersion.


Just keep in mind that the success of your affiliate store depends on how effective your affiliate program is. Before you even create an affiliate, remember not to overlook basic steps such as picking a viable niche and optimizing your affiliate store website goes a long way in shaping your overall success.


I hope my suggestion will be helpful to you.


Warm regards,

Richard | PageFly
