Earn money through affiliate marketing…

In today’s world, many people are seeking a way to make some extra cash. Affiliate marketing has become one of the methods that people use to earn a little more than they currently have.

Some people have even turned affiliate marketing into a full time business.

What is affiliate marketing?

Affiliate marketing is essentially a per sale payment for the sales that you make. Yes, if you are thinking ‘commission sales’ you are absolutely right. Because that is exactly what affiliate marketing is.

The one difference between this and traditional commission sales work is that you might never have contact or conversation with your prospects.

Online affiliate marketing can be as simple as a link that you place on your blog, website, facebook page, twitter posts, or in your email to other people (after your signature). When a potential customer clicks on this link and makes a purchase, provided that everything is set up and transpires correctly, the affiliate marketer makes a commission each time that this happens.

With affiliate marketing, you can sell physical products or information products. I have personally had the best luck with physical products.

A good example of an affiliate program that you can join to sell physical products is that at Toothy Grins Store. With that program, you can earn a commission selling products like this one.

There are literally hundreds of thousands of products around the globe that you can sell with affiliate marketing. One strategy might be to simply sell the products that you are already familiar with and that you like.

The possibilities are many with affiliate marketing. How you do it has a lot to do with your personal imagination and effort.

    Hi Dave,

    Does an affiliate marketer only gets a commission if a purchase is made? Or does he earn even in just clicks of an ad?
    Coz that’s what I thought about affiliate marketing. You can earn in just clicks.


  3. Dave Says:

    Hi Andrei, yes, in affiliate marketing – you only get paid when a sale is made, you do not get paid for impressions nor do you get paid for clicks.

    Hello Everyone
    This is my first visit to your blog and this looks awesome. Now let me tell you frankly, when i was a freelance writer, i used to think what this affiliate marketing is. When i started my own blog, i got the answer what affiliate marketing is and then i thought one cant make a huge money with affiliate marketing. But now i realized you can make the maximum money with affiliate marketing, (much more than what you can do with Google Adsense). But earning is not as fast as you can earn by Adsense. You need to have a good mailing list and good amount of readers.
    I have already subscribed and am interested in learning more about Affiliate marketing.
    Thanks and regards
