You Can Make Money As An Affiliate Marketer

What Is An Affiliate Marketer?

An affiliate marketer is a person who sells another organization’s products or services on his or her own website and receives a commission for the sale. As an example, you have a website or a blog on which you place a banner or a hyperlink promoting another company’s product. When someone clicks this link, they’ll be taken to the seller’s website where they can purchase the item and you, as an affiliate, get paid a commission for the sale. As a rule, commissions can run anywhere from 25 to 75 percent of the products purchase price.

What Is Affiliate MarketingOnce of the best parts of being an affiliate marketer is all you have to do is sell the product. The affiliate merchant handles shipping, returns, and any customer service needs from that point on.

There are plenty of 3rd party companies that act as affiliate marketing clearing houses. Some examples are Commission Junction, Clickbank and Adbank, to name a few.  You can go to these sites and find companies that are looking for affiliates to place banners and links on their website – but there’s a cost associated with these programs. For example, Clickbank may have a product that is being offered that will teach people how to build a website, and it sells for $19.95. You could promote that on your website, and when people purchase it, if the commission is 35%, you would be paid $6.98 for every sale made. The downside is that these clearing houses also get a piece of the pie – so your commission amount will decrease.

How Do I Promote My Affiliate Marketing Program

You’re going to have to be creative and drive traffic to your website or blog. The most common ways to do this is through advertising and promoting your affiliate program.  I suggest using Google Adwords, writing and sharing blogs, back linking and SEO page optimization.There's Lots Of Ways To Promote Your Affiliate Marketing Program

Make sure your webpage and blog content is relevant to the affiliate program you’re promoting.It is a good idea to sell affiliate products that go along with the subject matter of your website. For example, if you have a website that is focused on learning to be an online entrepreneur or starting your own online business, you’ll affiliate products to be about that subject or related topics.

How Much Can I Really Make With My Affiliate Program

It is estimated that several billion dollars per year are paid out to affiliate marketers, and businesses know that affiliate marketing is a profitable way for them to get the word out for their product or service. And they are willing to pay for it. Affiliate marketing has become a good home based business opportunity because the start-up costs are very small.

You can make higher commission amounts if you choose not to use an affiliate marketing clearing house and choose your affiliate merchants on your own. This is a bit more time consuming but the payouts are often worth the effort.
