Affiliate Marketing for Beginners
Affiliate marketing is a complicated beast to tackle. There are so many variables to affiliate marketing and it takes a lot of work to be successful.
What is Affiliate Marketing?
Definition: A way for a company to sell its products by signing up individuals or companies (“affiliates”) who market the company’s products for a commission.
Affiliate marketing has become an enormous online industry. It has become an effective way for marketers to sell their merchandise and services, and for publishers to profit from their audiences.
Affiliate marketing’s basic factors needed:
- A service or product
- A person with a service or product to sell
- A person who has the ability and the willingness to sell that service or product
A merchant has a service or product they need to be sold, and an affiliate marketer sells the product of service for a small percentage or commission. these can be a one-time payout or recurring pay monetization. Basic sales 101. Simple right?
As an affiliate marketer, you can join a company directly through a merchant, or through networks that handle the merchant’s affiliate transactions.
Be Serious about Your Business
The two pitfalls I see the most in affiliate marketing is people don’t affiliate marketing seriously. Why?
- It is very inexpensive (even free )to start your business.
- Too many con-artists claiming that its easy money.
If you invested $50,000 into a brick and mortar business, you would work your ass off to make sure it succeeded, right? So why don’t people do this with affiliate marketing? Because losing $300 worth of a start-up fee is easier to shrug off.
The other problem is that all of these people that make money monetize on the fact that the public wants easy money fast. It isn’t a lottery people. Actually, this can be one of the slowest ways, for some to get started seeing an income. But what’s great about the internet is that your works will pay off and will always be there. What you publish stays published. Treat it like a business and the money will follow. My fist month I made a whopping $1.68. It was so exciting that I couldn’t stop talking about it!
It may not cost a bunch of money to do affiliate marketing but you do have to invest a lot of time.
What You Need
