What is Affiliate Marketing?

September 26, 2012 0 Comments

Affiliate Marketing is a commission based model to earn money selling other people’s products.

When you do affiliate marketing you get a specific link from a merchant of your choice. This link contains your partner ID so the merchant can identify who has sold the product. With your help, the merchant got a new customer and sends you a commission for your recommendation.

In short:

  • I am convinced about a product
  • I write an article/record a video (be creative here!)  about the product and tell my readers about its advantages and disadvantages
  • I ask the customer to buy the product through my link which contains the affiliate code
  • The customer purchases the product
  • The vendor sends a commission to me 😀
Affiliate Marketing makes sense once you found out how it works (this is what we teach here at LivingForMondays, check here). Earning money with affiliate marketing is really fun!
