What is affiliate marketing?
If you’re reading this, you probably jumped online after you have been disgusted by your job or your life or one of your cool friends told you about making money online, and while looking into it you heard the term affiliate Marketing.
Affiliate marketing is very popular all over the net but in short affiliate marketing basically is the side of the industry where you become an affiliate to someone who owns and sells a product or service online. You then sell their product for them or with them and receive a commission for doing so.
Many people use affiliate marketing to completely replaced their income and live a “Five hour work week” or a lifestyle where they get to travel and enjoy life to the fullest (as they say). This is possible because of the ability to sell products or services online and only work as the marketing or advertising arm of the product sale process.
As an affiliate, you do not have to create a product, have a product, have a website or any of the mechanical things it takes in the process of developing services or products. All you need is to get the buyer to the product or service presentation or sales platform. If you’re able to do this, it is quite likely you will have a successful time making money with affiliate marketing.
So what are the best ways to do this?
Some of the more simpler ways to do this began in the early 2000’s. The process went a little like this; you would find someone with a hot shot product or service. Second, you check to see if their product sales automatically or consistently rather.
Next, you see if they have an affiliate hook up or network on their website and you simply sign up. If they have marketing material for their affiliates, you use the material, simply sending your traffic to their landing page and you have a affiliate system going on.
Today it is a little bit more complicated however it is still quite simple. If you see someone who can sell a product or service check to see if they have an affiliate program. Most programs are free to sign up with while some may cost a minimal fee or have a monthly fee to join them.
I would stay with the free ones just to get the hang of how affiliate marketing goes without spending any money.
Usually the best affiliate marketers are those who have an audience of people already. This way when a relative offer comes to them, they can share it with their customer base or their subscriber base, which they already own. This is called backyard money because the subscribers are on their list. They have already been acquired once. This is email marketing.
Another method, is to use Facebook or Google advertising platforms and target the ideal prospect for a product or service and send them to the affiliate offer. This requires a little bit of advertising dollars, but it’s also a very proven method of doing affiliate marketing.
How do you find affiliate programs?
The best ways to find affiliate programs are to look for products you enjoy using and you believe other people will enjoy and check to see if they have an affiliate program.
The second thing you could do is to search affiliate networks such as clickbank, offervault, or commission Junction and see exactly what programs are already selling very well and begin by selling those programs’ products and services.
This is how simple it is to get involved in the affiliate marketing world. To me, it makes good sense if you’re going into an online business to join us as an affiliate to someone. Especially if they are in your industry, you can join them and learn the selling process. Later on or as you go, you can learn the whole system of how to put the product and service together etc.
Once you learn the entire process then you can branch out and do everything for yourself as your own business and create your own products/services and make tons more money.
