This blog post is written with the purpose of helping you answer this mind indulging question, so take your time to read this because it might be helpful to you who is already doing affiliate marketing or who is yet to make a decision to begin affiliate marketing.
First if all we need to understand what affiliate marketing is all about in a nutshell.
According to Wikipedia, affiliate marketing is a type of performance-based marketing in which a business rewards one or more affiliates for each visitor or customer brought by the affiliate’s own marketing efforts.
Simply put, It is when you get paid some commissions for referring and promoting products or services using your own personal link created by the affiliate marketing platforms.
You get paid for driving in traffic or sales generated by your referrals. People who are involved in affiliate marketing are known as Affiliates.
There are several affiliate marketing programs and platforms in the internet space that deals with products and services and you get paid when a buyer or client pays to get those products or services using your own link and the profit is shared by a percentage to you for your efforts in bringing in a customer.
Some of these platforms in no particular order are Click bank, Warrior plus, JVzoo, Cpagrip, Amazon affiliate program, and many more. Even other products and services like Norton VPN, Systeme, and many other software offers affiliate programs, all you have to do is to sign up and start promoting their products.
To start affiliate marketing, it’s advisable to choose a particular niche and promote products related to it. It could be any niche like, Dog products and care, software, SaaS, Agency business, Estate and many more. You just have to find products relating to a particular niche, promote them get buyers and make money !
Now everything here may sound so easy but trust me, unless you’re putting enough hard-working, patience and spending some money, it won’t be easy and if clients are not converting, you won’t get paid, so you always have to put in efforts on promoting and convincing your clients to make purchases by either serving the mouth watering bonuses or coupons or whatever may force their hands to click your link and make purchases.
There are some qualities that affiliate marketers must have in order to make converting clients. You must be trustworthy, hard-working, patient, consistent, creative, willing to learn and have a good customer relationship.
Products and services that you try to promote should be trustworthy and prove to be worthful because your clients would not want to buy a product and find out that it’s not useful to them; it would make them not to trust you and whatever products you promote.
Now you understand what affiliate marketing is all about and how you can earn, let’s talk about how much you can make as an affiliate.
Many popular affiliate marketers like Pat Flynn makes up to $8000 to $100000 per month. Doug Cunnington made up to $70000 in the year 2017 from just one niche website.
