What Is Affiliate Marketing?

Essentially, affiliate marketing is when an advertiser/producer of a product pays you (the affiliate) for advertising their product/service each time that a lead you refer makes a purchase. It is very simple to make money with affiliate marketing and affiliate marketer opportunities are actually very abundant.

There are different kinds of affiliate programs: pay-per-click, pay-per-lead, and pay-per-sale affiliate programs are the three main types of affiliate marketer opportunities you will encounter. Pay-per-sale affiliate programs are typically the ones with the higher commissions, with you receiving either a set dollar amount per sale or a percentage of the sale. If you maintain a blog or a website and learn how to affiliate market properly, this could be a great way for you to generate an additional stream of income.

How to Become an Affiliate Marketer

Companies, businesses, or individuals often choose to establish an affiliate marketer opportunities as a substitute for or accompaniment to paid advertising. By “hiring” affiliate marketers, they are generating word of mouth advertisement that can bring them in more targeted leads and sales than they could have otherwise achieved through other methods. As compensation for this word of mouth, they then pay out a portion of the sales from each lead to the person who referred that lead to them (that would be you).

Most affiliate marketer companies train you (to varying degrees) on how to best market their products and services. They may even provide you with such helpful tools as affiliate links, banners, premade copy, autoresponders, and capture pages – all tools that will help you to more easily get the product or service out in front of the people who are looking for it. However, there are also other options available to you such as Facebook marketing, posting videos on Youtube, blogging, and content/article marketing. The options for how to affiliate market are widely varied. It is up to you to decide which strategies would work best for your goals as well as for your business personality.

How Much Can You Make?

The amount of income that affiliate marketer opportunities can generate is widely varied and largely dependent on two factors:

The compensation plan. Different affiliate marketer opportunities will offer different payouts for referrals. Some of them will pay you for each lead, while others will pay you only for leads that convert into sales. Some of them will offer you 20% commission, while others may offer you much more.

Another factor is you. How are you marketing? Where are you marketing? Who are you marketing to? How often are you marketing? Are you following up with your leads to answer their questions and move them along to the next step in the process? Are you investing time and energy into getting leads and sales? If you are not, then chances are likely that you will not have a significant income from affiliate marketing. All of these factors are part of how to affiliate market in a way that is profitable.

Simple Tips to Get Started

Choose a product or service that you feel comfortable promoting and that you have confidence in. If you wouldn’t buy it, don’t try to sell it.

If you maintain a blog or a website, your best bet is to choose a product or service that is in line with your blog’s/website’s content and that your readers would actually be interested in. If you suddenly start marketing products that they have no interest in, not only will you be wasting your time and energy, but you may lose some of your readers.

Read the affiliate agreement BEFORE you agree to it. What are they expecting from you? What can you expect from them? Are those things that you can live with? Are they reliable when it comes to actually paying their affiliates?

Look into what tools and training they offer affiliate. Any affiliate program worth your time will have training set up to teach you how to affiliate market and will offer you tools (especially tracking and reporting tools) that will help you to see what you are doing right and how you can improve your performance. Do they offer you the option to view conversions, sales, and commissions in the back office? Are you able to customize things to fit your website (such as color, theme, and banner size)?

In addition to quality tools and training, do they offer reliable support? That is critical – you will want to be able to contact them should you ever have a pressing concern that needs to be addressed.

Determine when and how you will be paid. Are you paid automatically or is there a waiting period? Is your commission check sent to you via snail mail, deposited into an account, or do you have to have a merchant account set up? Are you paid per click, per lead, or per sale? Typically pay-per-lead and pay-per-sale affiliate programs are the ones with the higher payout.

However, one thing to keep in mind with those is that you will need to have a higher influx of unique visitors to get the results you want.
