What is Affiliate Marketing?

Affiliate Marketing

When you promote a company’s product, and people buy it through your affiliate link, you earn commissions for the sale of that product, this is affiliate marketing.

How does Affiliate Marketing work?

When you register yourself as an affiliate for a company, you will have to choose what categories of products you are going to promote.

When you promote any product of your choice through your affiliate link, the merchant will include your unique affiliate ID in the products link to track the sales and impressions from your link.

If a person clicks on your affiliate product link, your affiliate ID gets stored as cookies on his device.

Although the cookies stored in the device have an expiry. But if the person clicks on your link and doesn’t buy the product right away, but buys it before the expiry of the cookie, you will get your commission.

You need not worry about the storage, shipment, and payment of the product. You just need to register yourself as an affiliate for a company. Select the products you want to promote, generate sales and earn a commission.

Why You Should Be in Affiliate Marketing?

Corona pandemic taught us many lessons about our lifestyle and finances, but the most important lesson I have learned is having passive income sources other than your 9-5 jobs.

Everything was closed, banks, Offices, Schools you name it. But internet people were making double money because everyone was at home, nothing to do besides surf the internet or play games and watch tv.

The people who were in the Affiliate marketing game before the pandemic made good money through the lockdown period, sales of courses, or any other sales they made through the period.

Website or blog owners made more money because of the rise in visitors in the lockdown period.

So having a passive income source is a must if you want to never run out of cash in such difficult times or at least have an income source if your day job stops paying.

So, affiliate marketing can be a good starting to have a cash flow other than your regular job.

It requires no investment, and that’s the best part.
