This is probably a new term for most of you so what exactly is affiliate marketing and how can you make money from it?
Affiliate marketing (or internet marketing) is online advertising that allows for businesses to affiliate themselves with website owners via affiliate programs.
In more simple terms, affiliate marketers sign up to company’s affiliate programs and then promote their products or services through their websites online. When people access or purchase those products or services through your website, you make money (an affiliate commision). Pretty simple really. You can promote fashion or cosmetics or arts and crafts or gym memberships or weight loss pills or cars or real estate or just about anything you can think of.
As an example of affiliate marketing we’ll use this site. Casual Affairs Australia is a site that reviews Dating and Affair websites in Australia. These reviews give the good, the bad and the ugly of each site and then give people the opportunity to visit the reviewed site via affiliate links which are positioned throughout the review articles. Affiliate links are simply normal web links which contain a code that lets these businesses know which site the visitor came from.
In the case of Casual Affairs Australia, when people click on, say a link from the Ashley Madison review article to visit the Ashley Madison site, if they then sign up and pay for a subscription, we receive a commission. The commission in this particular example varies depending upon a number of things but, it ranges from $15 to $200 per subscription.
I bet that last number got your attention.
In fact you may be thinking that if you made just one or two sales a day at the top commission rate, you could supplant your weekly income. And you can, but it does take a bit know-how and some dedicated work to get there. The real bonus is that you can do this from your own home (or wherever you like), in your own way and in your own time.
If you want to learn how to set up and run your own affiliate marketing business, enjoying all of the things that an internet lifestyle can bring, then you can get started now.
