Affiliate programs are one of company marketing product and service approaches. Companies want to get found in this crowded marketplace (the internet), and they need people to help spread the word about their product/service. So much that they will pay you a commission for referring people to their site that make a purchase.
You know how you recommend different products or places to friends? Well, now you can get paid for it!
You have to apply and become approved by the company before you can get started. If you are approved affiliate you do affiliate marketing, that is, when you refer someone to a product or service online using a unique link and if they make a purchase through your link you earn a commission.
Thanks to the internet, affiliate marketing is one of stay at home jobs because it does not require you to produce anything, deliver a service, be chained to the phone or managed by the clock.
Affiliate Marketing works best when you have an audience that trusts you, and you promote products/services you’ve actually used. When applying to become an affiliate the provider will almost always ask if you have a website. Please consider:
- Do you have Wordexpress site?
- Do you have a popular Blog?
- Do you have a Facebook account with a lot of followers?
If you have either one, apply to be affiliate now.
