Affiliate Marketing 101

A Beginner's Guide to Affiliate Marketing

Essentially, as an affiliate marketer, you sell products for a commission. This means you’ll be finding products online and promoting them using your own affiliate link. If someone clicks on your link and then buys the product, you’ll get a cut of the profit. Often, affiliate marketing involves selling digital products and you can expect your cut to be as much as 50% all the way up to 75% of the RRP.

There’s no risk involved for you because you’re not creating the product and there’s nothing for you to ship or for you to store.

Affiliate marketing offers individuals and businesses an easy way of earning money through the selling of 3rd party products or services. It takes away the complexity of product creation and allows you to focus on just the marketing. For businesses, the focus is typically on finding complimentary products or services to your existing revenue streams. For individuals, the focus is on finding product and services that you have a personal passion or domain knowledge for.
