What is Affiliate Marketing and How Can You Make Money as an Affiliate Marketer?

Affiliate Marketing

You can make money online by selling other people’s products and services. If you refer sales via a link that has your affiliate tracking code the company will pay you a referral fee. BestForTheKids.com is an example of an affiliate site.

What Types of Products and Services?

There are literally thousands of products and services that offer an affiliate program! Everything from software programs, digital downloads, membership sites, books, music … and quite honestly just about every type of physical product that you can purchase online can be sold through an affiliate program.

How Much Do You Make Per Sale?

The referral fees paid out by companies to their affiliates vary greatly. It can be a flat price or a percentage of the sale. Percentages are typically higher on digital products than that of a physical product or service. Typically a digital commission will range from 20-75% where with physical products it’s usually more along the lines of 2-20% (commissions will of course vary depending on the products and service).

How Do You Sell These Products and Services?

Barring any specific do’s or donts stated by the company you are promoting for you can use a number of different methods to market, including, but not limited to: website, blogging, video marketing, article marketing,  social media marketing (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, etc.), list building and email marketing, paid advertising, Amazon ppc management software, classified ads, and much more.
