How does affiliate marketing work?
What is the essence of affiliate marketing?
This is an advertising tool, where the affiliate product is advertised or sold at the specified link. Sellers get the opportunity to reach a wider circle of buyers, and customers, in turn, get more information about the product. When a person clicks on a link and get the product, you get a percentage.
What to do next?
There are several ways to become a marketing partner.
The main way is to create a website or blog.
The second way is social networks.
Social media advertising improves brand image and and increases audience reach. And the last one is the mailing list.
One way or another, you will need your blog or a ready-made website, or a wide audience on social networks, or a list of addresses for email distribution. Next you need to register on the platform.
There are two options for working with affiliate platforms. There are those that act as intermediaries between companies. and those who offer placement of their own goods. To register, you must meet the criteria specified by the site.
Some are targeted to websites and require a certain number of visitors to your resource before you can get approval, others must prove that you are advertising their goods, and others are very open to other distribution approaches.
Once approved, they will provide you some target links or a system for adding links to your item. Operating conditions vary by platform. “Depending on the platform, you will be credited with either clicking on the link or selling the product.
Platforms have their own method of accounting for action. This can be a link or a product purchase.” All partners have their own conditions, which can be in the range of two percent to fifty.
How much can you get?
If you have low traffic at the start on the blog or site, you can count on about a hundred dollars. If you have attracted a large number of visitors to your platform, it can earn from 1000 to 2000 dollars a month. Remember that the conditions and terms for paying interest on different platforms are different. The commission can be paid at different times, sometimes you have to wait up to 60 days.
Where to look for partners for links?
Look for catalogs on the Internet. Many sites provide affiliate program listings.
In order to better understand how it works, look for all the information you find or take a training course. Do not forget about your goal. Develop and expand, the only way to succeed.
