What Is Affiliate Marketing About
Bare with me for a moment as we review the “scientific” definition of what affiliate marketing is about. Then hear the view from an actual affiliate marketer. So what is affiliate marketing about?
According to wikipedia.org, “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”.
If you’re like me, you might of read that twice just to try and understand what the hell they mean exactly. What their definition is stating is that you, as an affiliate marketer, earn money based on your performance and ability to attract visitors to your website. From there, you need to be able to route your visitors to an affiliate business(or program) to see any results.
Which is solidly true, but don’t let that intimidate you.
I’ve come to realize, the most successful people in this business have one similar trait in common. Their ability to help others.
How I Stumbled Across Affiliate Marketing
Simple yet true story, I wanted to earn money online to purchase a new laptop.
Though I was making decent money at my former job, spending money on a new laptop was not in the budget. My girlfriend, two kids and I were living from paycheck to paycheck, and couldn’t afford to go out and just purchase any of our wants.
So I figured I would use my older problematic laptop(read more on how I began making money with problem laptop) in order to purchase a new one. Little did I know this would turn into a successful, real, everyday business.
So like many of you, I wanted to find out how can I make money online and Googled it. I came across numerous scams, I couldn’t tell the difference then but can spot a scam a light year away now, along with these tempting get rich quick schemes. I didn’t bite, but kept looking.
Long story short, I found a seemingly trustworthy site which taught affiliate marketing and you could get started with the first lessons for free free. After doing some research and giving it a try, I learned that the site was honest and legit.
What I Know About Affiliate Marketing
I have not been at this for years, but months rather. But I do have access to people who have achieved great success through affiliate marketing and on the internet with 10+years experience. So do you think I take advantage of that? Absolutely!
As mentioned above, it takes a certain skill and sincerity in helping people to see a lasting outcome in affiliate marketing. That is one thing you need grasp if wanting to succeed in this business.
If you can understand that, you too can be successful at this. You don’t need any prior experience, or to be a salesman, have a degree, none of that. But you do need to treat it the same as a business you would offline.
It takes time to build your foundation or your website. Results and earnings rarely happen instantly. If you put the time and effort into it however, you too can earn a full-time income right from your home.
It can seem like a lot when first starting out, which is obviously normal when learning something new. But with the proper training it can be a much smoother transition.
What Will You Be Doing?
You will be essentially selling products or services, to real customers, but will never have to ship any items, fill out special paperwork, none of that.
Wait, How Is That Possible?
Firstly, you need to come up with a topic or passion(known as a niche, remember that word) you can relate to other people and offer your assistance. In order to get your message out there and offer that assistance to people, you will need your own website.
These products and services are free to publicize on your website, through affiliate programs. It’s also free to sign up and join an affiliate program. I understand some charge, but I never paid to become an affiliate anywhere.
A Quick Example of a Niche and Affiliate Program
I am into video games, they are clean entertainment and down right fun. As many of you know, the video game industry is massive and will only expand.
With that being said, “video games” alone will be completely flooded on the internet. Meaning high competition levels, and too broad of a niche to try and gain any special attention and visitors to my website.
So, with a little brainstorming and research, I can simplify “video games” into “video game chairs”. These are chairs gamers use; some produce sound and other special effects while gaming.
Video game chairs will narrow down competition, and we have our product we can review and assist people with. From there, after learning how to set up your website properly, you can then join Amazon’s Affiliate Program for free.
As an affiliate you can display any product available on Amazon onto your website(make sure it relates) in this case we have “video game chairs”. Amazon provides it’s affiliate with affiliate links on products that you can display on your website.
What you may do from here is a thorough and helpful review on any product or service after doing some research. Do not try and sell a product, let the product sell itself. Just provide the facts in an honest review.
If someone is further interested in that particular product/service , they may then select the link placed on your page provided by Amazon. Once your link is selected and leads someone to Amazon, you then receive a commission if they make the purchase. One more cool thing to note, if that same person selects your link and goes on to make more purchases or a different one, you receive commission for that as well.
Awesome stuff, I know!
This is just one small example of a niche. And one small example of the numerous affiliate programs available. Now think of all the people who are online shopping and looking for information on certain products and services.
You literally have the largest audience available to you online!
A List Of What You Will Need
- To decide on any interest, or passion
- Own website(s)
- Able to attract visitors
- Understand how to make money
The Best Part About It
It takes time to establish your website, but this can also be the most exciting part about it. Especially if you have chosen a passion or something you are really into. It will not happen over night, you won’t earn money right away. Put in the time and effort and you too can have a successful online business.
It’s a marathon, not a sprint!
I realize this may not be for everyone, that’s fine. I never approach affiliate marketing as just another job, but as my own online business. The possibilities of niches, services and help you can provide are endless. I enjoy having my own online business by way of affiliate marketing and know you can too. The freedom of not being bound or required to go to work, but having your own schedule is priceless.
