Affiliate marketing is probably the quickest way to make money online starting out as a newbie. After all, billions of ordinary people use internet every day. Affiliate marketing gives you the opportunity to target potential customers regardless of their location in the world.
For this reason, it isn’t surprising that a huge number of people make a considerable amount of money through affiliate advertising and marketing. Many skilled affiliate marketers end up making more money in this field than they did in their previous job, and hence some of them even resign their normal 9-5 job and pursue affiliate marketing full-time.
Brief Overview On Affiliate Marketing
Now that you have a small insight into the capacity of affiliate marketing, let’s dig a little deeper.
The easiest way to describe affiliate marketing is when you help another company sell their products online, and then you get paid a commission for each sale you bring to them.
If you are promoting a product priced at $200, and the company pays you 10 percentage commission of the sale, you would make $20 for each sale.
BUT…how do you refer sales?
You can begin promoting your seller’s products on your website, which receives targeted site visitors in the same niche as the product you are advertising. For example, if you have a website that in the Health & Fitness niche you would not advertise make-up, but instead you could promote health & fitness related products. Every time one of your website’s visitors clicks on your affiliate link which was supplied to you by the seller – Cha Ching – you will be paid a commission.
