How to Do Affiliate Marketing
Affiliate marketing is the process of selling goods and services as an affiliate. You earn commission that has been pre-decided by the seller or producer of the product. Today, affiliate marketing has become one of the major sources of income for bloggers and online entrepreneurs. It allows those with a huge network of online visitors to sell products for producers who would otherwise spend thousands of dollars to do so.
Start your own blog or website. In order to become an affiliate marketer, you must have your own blog or website through which you can sell products or services. You will have to place links of affiliate products on your website.
Decide on the niche you want to work in. Remember, you can never sell ‘every’ product as an affiliate marketer. Your website needs to be geared towards a certain niche in order to get massive traffic of visitors. A well optimised and targeted website is more lucrative for producers than a one with no direction.
Create an account with Clickbank, E-Junkie or Paydotcom. All these three platforms allow affiliates and producers to meet. Clickbank by far is the best one and the most user friendly platform. You can sell e-books, videos, audios and other digital products through these websites.
Set up a pitch page. A pitch page is commonly referred to as a sales page. This is the page where you will sell the product via the affiliate link. It is recommended to make this page as catchy possible, since it will be your tool to lure visitors into buying the product.
Connect with the seller through the selected platform by showing him your website. Producers will have a pre-determined amount for commission and there will be no room for negotiation. There are millions of products on these websites. Whichever one suits you the most, you can select it and sell it against the pre-determined commission.
Paste the affiliate link created by the website on your webpage. This link will direct user to Clickbank, E-Junkie or Paydotcom for the final sale. You have made your sale!
