The ABC Of Affiliate Marketing

Every day, more and more people are buying products and services over the internet, and affiliate marketing offers an easy way to start an online business that gives you access to these online sales events.

To understand affiliate marketing simply, you need to start with the ABCs of affiliate marketing.

A is for subsidiary

Many companies offer affiliate programs for their products and services. You registered to become a partner of a product or service. You are called an affiliate when you sell their products, but you are not part of their business. As a partner, you can sell physical products that must be shipped or digital products that can be downloaded immediately after purchase. You then advertise the product and when you make a sale, you get paid.

Take the time to select products to sell as an affiliate. Remember, you only get paid when you make a sale. If you’re trying to sell old junk, you’re not making sales and it’s a waste of time.

B is intended for companies

There are many networks and companies as cooperation partners. Amazon became the most successful online retailer in the world using the affiliate marketing model. You can sign up to become an Amazon affiliate and sell anything on the Amazon website.

ClickBank is one of the most popular digital retailers that sells virtual information products. These are items that the customer can download immediately after purchase. There are many affiliates who make a pretty good living just promoting ClickBank products.

C stands for commissions

Amazon starts you off with a 4% commission that increases as you sell more products. In ClickBank you can earn commissions of 25%, 50% and even 75%. There are other affiliate marketing programs that offer a wide variety of rewards, products, and services, so you’ll need to check out more than one to see which one is perfect for you.

When starting affiliate marketing, don’t get too obsessed with earning commissions from day one. Take time to build a base of prospects and customers who want to buy from you.

It’s not a long sales pitch. Think of it as “telling” rather than “selling.” Your job is to help people find the products or information they are looking for. The key to making reliable and consistent money as an affiliate is to find a product that is in high demand, pays you a good commission, and has a company behind it that cares about its customers.
