What is affiliate marketing?
What is the essence of affiliate marketing?
This is an advertising tool, in which someone’s product is advertised or sold and a link is made. Sellers get the opportunity to reach a wider circle of buyers, and users have the opportunity to discover all the benefits of the product. If the user follows the link and get the product, you get a percentage.
How it works?
There are several ways to become a marketing partner.
The main way is to create a website or blog.
Another way is social networks.
Companies want to be represented on social networks, as this increases brand confidence and covers the audience, pushing for a purchase. And the last one is the mailing list.
Whichever option you choose, you will need a base. A website, blog, social media page, or list of mailing list addresses. The next step is to connect to the affiliate program.
There is a different approach, some platforms are intermediaries between companies and those that companies offer for their own product. To register, you must meet the criteria specified by the site.
Some platforms require a fixed number of visitors to your site or blog before you receive offers, others must prove that you are promoting their goods, and others are very open to other distribution approaches.
Once approved, they will give you some target links or a system for adding links to your products. How it works depends on the platform. “When people click on links, depending on the platform, you may be credited as a “sale”, or you will have to wait until the product is purchased.” Each partner pays a different percentage, which varies from 2.5% to 50%.
What percentage do the sites give?
If you have low fame on the blog or site, you can count on about a hundred dollars. If you have attracted a large number of visitors to your platform, you can earn up to two thousand dollars on it. Each pratform gives its own conditions for the payment of commissions. Some pay immediately, while others can send a percentage in 2 months.
Where to look for partners for links?
To work on the Internet, look for information there. There are many services and articles. There you can read reviews.
In order to better understand how it works, look for all the information you find or take a training course. Do not forget about your goal. Develop and expand, the only way to succeed.
