What is Affiliate Marketing?


Affiliate marketing is an online sales tactic that lets a product owner increase sales by allowing others targeting the same audience – “affiliates” – to earn a commission by recommending the product to others. At the same time, it makes it possible for affiliates to earn money on product sales without creating products of their own.

The cost to the customer purchasing the product or service through an affiliate is the same as buying directly from the product owner.


While product owners make less money per sale because they must pay a percentage of the sale to the affiliate, they are also reaching potential customers they probably wouldn’t reach on their own.

Affiliates can earn commissions on a one-time purchase or recurring income through sales of subscriptions or membership programs.

 
How to Become an Affiliate


Marketers become affiliates in a number of ways that include:

Registering to become affiliate on retail or ecommerce sites. Amazon, for example, has an affiliate program that lets marketers earn commissions on  customers.
Surveying existing customers to learn their favorite products or services and then contacting those companies to inquire about an affiliate program. For example, a small business marketing consultant might become an affiliate of an email list management and distribution service.
Searching online for products that are relevant to the marketer’s site and will appeal to the target audience. Most companies that offer affiliate programs indicate that with an “Affiliates” or “Partners” link at the bottom of their site home page.
Looking for potential affiliate products at affiliate program managers that include Commission Junction, Clickbank, and ShareASale.

How It Works


After being accepted into an affiliate program, marketers receive a unique URL that includes their affiliate ID. They share that unique URL with their subscribers, site visitors, and social networks via text links or ads. When someone clicks on that link, affiliate software records that click and any resulting product sales in the affiliate’s account. When commissions reach a pre-determined threshold, the affiliate is paid.

 
How much can you earn from affiliate marketing?


This is a ‘How long’s a piece of string?’ question. Your income as a beginner affiliate will depend massively on several factors:

The efficiency and reliability of the affiliate network you work with.
The commission levels and conversion rates of the advertisers you work with.
Your level of commitment.
Your depth of knowledge and willingness to learn everything about your niche in order to succeed.
Networks and commissions vary widely. New affiliates could take over a year to make their first sale, but with the correct training and persistence, you could earn anything between $5 and $100 per sale from products on our network!

It’s easy to see how this can add up to some pretty impressive earnings. Some of our top affiliates earn in excess of $8000 per week! Who needs to be Walter White when you can earn this much legitimately, online, from anywhere in the world?
