What is Affiliate Marketing and how it works

Affiliate Marketing is one of the oldest and interesting forms of Digital Marketing where you refer someone to the product on your website and if he/she purchases the product by your recommendation, you will receive a commission.

There are many big companies like Apple, Amazon, Google, etc who are having affiliate programs for individuals that you can join for free, and if you didn’t know anything about it then be ready my friends you are going to experience a very interesting way of money-making from home.

Your earning can be from 1$-1000$, 2000$  even more than that, it also depends on the kind of product you are promoting.

Below is the diagrammatic explanation of Affiliate Marketing, it will help you understand better.

  • Choose a product that you want to promote.
  • Sign in and get approval from them(Some of them ask for the approval and some of them don’t).
  • After approval, you will get a unique affiliate link.
  • Now, share the link via Instagram, Facebook, blog, youtube, website, etc.
  • Whenever anyone makes purchases you will receive a handsome affiliate commission.

Every company that sells products online has an affiliate marketing program and anyone can join it for free. It is as simple as making a profile on social media and open to anyone interested in affiliate marketing.

You only need to sign in to the “XYZ”  website’s affiliate program that you want to promote.

Wait for the approval.

Get a unique affiliate link. Remember whenever you are writing anything about the product on your blog, website, or anywhere put that affiliate link with the help of which you will get a handsome commission if your visitor buys the product.

Custom Coupons/Affiliate coupons- According to me and as per my experiences it is one of the best ways to do affiliate marketing and many companies offer coupon affiliate programs.

Personally, I feel it is even much better than AdSense you can earn more than Adsense but it’s not that you can’t earn through Adsense, of course, you can.

So, whenever you see a coupon and any offer, there is an affiliate link included in it for affiliate marketers, promoting any product to get good revenue. Then congrats my friend, here the coupon code is the best affiliate program.

Some companies also give facilities for cookie policy. In this, many of the companies offer a 30-200days cookie policy in which if your visitor goes to the website clicking your affiliate link and if they re-visit that same site through your link within 30-150 days even if he/she doesn’t buy anything then also you will get the commission.

So, in short from the above elaboration, you must have thought, Affiliate marketing is such a wonderful and magical thing to earn.
