What the *&$% is Affiliate Marketing?
It's a fancy term for the coolest way to earn some dough while sitting on your couch, eating bonbons and binge-watching Netflix! In more technical jargon, it's a performance-based marketing model where an individual, known as an affiliate, promotes a product or service and earns a commission for every sale or lead generated through their marketing efforts.
Here's a simple example of a traditional affiliate marketing transaction:
Let's say Jane signs up for the Amazon Associates program, which allows her to promote products from Amazon on her blog and earn a commission for every sale she generates.
She writes a blog post about a camera she recently purchased and loves, including a unique link to the camera on Amazon's website. A reader clicks on the link, makes a purchase, and BAM! Amazon tracks the sale and pays Jane a commission, which is a percentage of the total sale price.
Jane continues to write blog posts and promote products on Amazon, earning commissions on each sale she generates.
That's basically a recipe for a successful laptop lifestyle!
Our definition of affiliate marketing is a way of earning money by promoting a product to your audience. When you recommend a product to your audience and they make a purchase based on your recommendation, you receive a financial reward for the referral. Essentially, you earn a commission for every sale (or email or click) that you generate for the product.
If you keep this definition in mind, it will simplify eveything you read and learn about affiliate marketing. It all boils down to promoting a product or products and receiving compensation.
