Many of us probably have never even heard of affiliate marketing so let’s answer what it is to begin with. Affiliate marketing is a system by which you refer online shoppers to particular services and products (i. e. promoting playing poker in the UK) and in return earning a percentage of the sale. Affiliate marketers are given links to the service or product which makes it clear to the seller that you referred the particular customer.
1. Easy money: affiliate marketing is a simple way to make money as people are buying services/products from the internet all the time. It is often free to link yourself up to sellers and you do not even have to create your own product.
2. Fantastic return: Some sellers even offer up to 50% commission on the service/product referred.
3. Top up your income: by affiliate marketing you can top up your usual income and maybe even replace it once you become experienced.
Write articles linked to the service/product you are promoting. The more you write the more your presence online will grow and ultimately more and more people will know about you.
Write blogs for no charge with the stipulation that you want links adding to the blog which sends readers to your services and products. This way you do not have to search for your own customers and you simply market your service/product to people already interested in it.
Online, there are sites which allow you to add a link to the service/product you are promoting. In some cases you may even be given a small fee for the articles you produce.
Eventually you may decide to develop your own website. This gives you the opportunity to advertise the links to the services/products you are promoting. Combine your blogging with social media sites to reach a wider audience base.
The trick to becoming successful at affiliate marketing is to make sure your promote a service/product that people are interested in and one that that you know plenty about and can market well so that people are interested in reading what you have to say. Once you can achieve this, the money will start to flow in naturally.
