What is Affiliate Marketing?

Affiliate MarketingAffiliate marketing, simple definition, is a process where a person (like me or you) promotes other people’s products or products for a company to earn a percentage of the sale price. In other words you earn a commission when someone purchases a product or service through your affiliate link for products that you don’t own.

Thousands of people are now working from home promoting other people’s products.  Most every company you are familiar with online has an affiliate marketing program… even Walmart.  There are also many high paying programs where you can earn very high commissions.

The Allure of Affiliate Marketing

Affiliate marketing is highly profitable so appealing because you can start as soon has you have a platform to market on such as a WordPress website.  You don’t have to start a company, produce products that can take a lot of time or hire employees or stock products.  You just advertise the creators product or service. Some top affiliates earn many 1000’s (even over $100,000) each and every month. It can even be as simple as just placing banners around the internet. If someone clicks on one of your banners and purchases a product from you link… you made a commission.  You can even market cars, electronics, jewelry/watches, travel or credit cards just to name a few.

Being this type of marketer means that you have your own business.  You can get up when you want, you can eat when you want and you can vacation when you want.  You’re not tied to a regular 8 to 5 routine; if you’re a night owl you love the freedom.  Plus you can work from anywhere in the world you want.  You can spend months in another country or down at the beach. Who wouldn’t want to travel and work online when they want?
