The Business Of Affiliate Marketing

By Tony Pescatore

One of the most popular businesses around today is the business of affiliate marketing. More and more people are promoting affiliate products.

What this means is affiliate marketing is about the promotion of products with an online company. The affiliate becomes the promoter, active looker of clients interested in the product. To do this the affiliate signs up with the marketing or advertising part of the company.

The reason becoming an affiliate is increasing in numbers is you are the boss there are no deadlines to meet and you can promote what you are passionate about. You do not have to go through the process of developing software programs, service, or digital content products. The companies do all the work then you collect the money so to speak.

To make money the company offers to pay you a set amount for either a percentage of a purchase made by visitors who makes the sale referred from your website. Another way is a click through from your website or even visitors signing up you can get a set amount for that.

The visitor does not have to make the purchase straight away, most programs offer 30 - 90 day cookie duration. How this happens as long as the cookie is in the visitors cache you will still receive your set amount of profit from the sale if the visitor makes a purchase.

Notes about choosing programs pick the ones that you truly believe in, that you will feel comfortable recommending. Sometimes it is better to purchase that product yourself that way you can really promote it because you know how it works and make a real issue on the benefits and state the fact you have purchased it yourself. You do not have to purchase it, it's just a tip to better promotion.

Promoting affiliate products can be exciting but the truth behind affiliate marketing is the fact that about 90% of affiliates will actually make less than 100 dollars a month especially when they first start out. For that reason, you should not count on making full time income unless you can get very good at marketing and advertising the products. So as a beginner in the business of affiliate marketing take it baby steps first get a feel for it and enjoy the ride.
