What is affiliate marketing?
Let’s understand what affiliate marketing is.
This is an advertising tool, in which someone’s product is advertised or sold and a link is made. Sellers get the opportunity to reach a wider circle of buyers, and customers, in turn, get more information about the product. When a person clicks on a link and choose the product, you get a commission.
How does it work?
Becoming a marketing partner can be one of these ways.
The main way is to create a website or blog.
Another option is social networks.
Companies want to be represented on social networks, as this increases brand confidence and and increases audience reach. Finally, there are email newsletters. This is one of the most cost effective types.
In any case, you should have a functioning site, a large number of subscribers on social networks or a huge mailing list by e-mail. Next you need to register on the platform.
There is a different approach, some platforms are intermediaries between companies and those who offer placement of their own goods. When registering, each of them has its own criteria.
Some platforms require a fixed number of visitors to your site or blog before you receive offers, others must prove that you are advertising their products, and others are very open to other distribution approaches.
Once approved, they will give you some target links or a system for adding links to your merch. Check with the platform what their requirements and conditions are. “Platforms depending on conditions pay either for a purchase or for a click on a link.” Each platform has a different commission structure, Which can reach up to fifty percent.
What percentage do the sites give?
If you start with a little traffic on the blog or site, you can count on about a hundred dollars. If you have attracted a large number of visitors to your platform, you can earn up to two thousand dollars on it. Each pratform gives its own conditions for the payment of commissions. Some pay immediately, while others can send a percentage in 2 months.
