What is Affiliate Marketing?
There is a good deal of people who have the common thought of what is affiliate marketing. Just about everyone has their own answer and I am no different. I was asked again today what is affiliate marketimg? My answer was simple, affiliate marketing is the act of selling someone else’s product. The person seemed content with my answer but countered with another question (and it fits the site name!) how did you reach your financial success so fast? My response was simple, with some easy affiliate marketing. Not some system drawn up based on what something isn’t, just some easy affiliate marketing! And I call it easy affiliate marketing for a reason, it’s easy.
I asked her a question, what is your hobby? The answer was easy and one word, dogs. I asked her what she liked or was most interested in about dogs and she said grooming. BINGO! I told her she should get into niche blogging and recommend products based on her experience. I mentioned to her she should check out keywords related to dog grooming and grab a domain based around her findings. I was curious as to what she learned and she sarcastically said easy affiliate marketing
The method is very straightforward. Let us take Click Bank as an example. Someone create a useful product and desires to sell it. He or she uses ClickBank in order to achieve some of those sales. Affiliates (like you and me) endorse that product, in return they offer some commission for each sale we do, for example the product is of $50, when you sell it you may get up to 75% of commission (Commission depends on the product and Vendor) that means you can generate up to $37 for each sale. Promotional methods may vary from person to person. It depends on their interest of promotion and budget in hand. You can use blog/website traffic or email list or write a review on the product that you are trying to sell. The best way to sell a product is to be a buyer of the product, buy it, know the product write a review and promote. You can approach PPC ad networks with desired keywords and which is one of the best ways to generate profits from Click Bank.
