Affiliate marketing A to Z guide
Do you need money to make money? No, you don’t. Amazing, isn’t it? In this guide, I’m going to explain to you about affiliate marketing, and you can make money from affiliate marketing without spending money. Ok, let’s move on to the post.
In the beginning, let’s try to define affiliate marketing. In simple in the world, there are lots of physical and digital products, but they have limited recourse to promote those products. In affiliate marketing what happens as an example let’s say you have a yoga course you want to promote it using affiliate marketers.what you have to do is you will say I will give you a 10% commission from qualified sales if anyone can promote my course. You put this offer in your site or affiliate marketplace site. What happens? When an affiliate marketer sees your offer, they register with you or in the market place they start promoting your product to their own targeted audience(we have to give special ID to track the sales) what happen you will get more qualified seals and then you have to give the commission to the affiliate marketer. In simple, this is the whole process inside the affiliate marketing.
I think you have noticed there are four parties involved in this who are they
- The actual product owner: who has the product
- The platform/ marketplace: this could be an affiliate marketplace or his own site
- The product: the product to promote
- Affiliate marketer: who promote the product and bring seals and make the common
