However, when I started my journey to earn online, I was not aware of all the methods available to make me earn big. Anyway, you can learn from my mistakes and explore this opportunity to earn better. I will start explaining you about affiliate marketing first.

what is affiliate marketing

Before explaining affiliate marketing, I would like to tell you something about Google Adsense program. It is an online program started by Google for those who want to earn money online. You can also make easy money through Google Adsense, but not as much as through affiliate marketing. So, what is affiliate marketing? It's an online marketing strategy where you promote a company's product in exchange of hefty commissions. I mean, you will be paid commission on every sale (depending on price of the product you promote).

There are thousands of online companies running their affiliate programs as well as dealing with a number of products, like computers, health products, shoes, etc. You will be working as an affiliate for them. This means you will act as a middleman between the company and their advertisers. You may join more than one affiliate program to get a boost in your earnings.

In order to work as an affiliate and start your earning process, you require the following:

  • a computer system
  • high speed internet connection
  • a website or blog you own
  • a good amount of traffic (number of visitors) coming to your blog or website

Before you start, please make sure you own a blog or website first. I've listed some important points about affiliate marketing for your reference.

  • affiliate marketing means you work as an affiliate for an online company by promoting its products.
  • once you join as an affiliate, you will be given a unique link or code. Please copy and paste this link to your website or blog. In this way, you will be advertising for the company's product.
  • this code helps the company to keep a track on the number of sales you make as well as the amount of traffic you get on a daily basis. At the same time, it also refers a visitor (who visits your blog or website) directly to the company's website for more information about the product.
  • if a visitor likes the product you promote or shows his interest by filling up the form for subscription, you will be paid commission (which can be up to 80% of the price of product you promote)
  • In the same way, you will also get a good commission for each sale you make

For your reference, I have included a list of some online companies running their affiliate programs. You can choose any of the affiliate program to start your earning process.

  • commission junction
