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.
