In todays post, we are going to cover something new. It is called affiliate marketing and has become increasingly popular in the last few years.
In a nutshell, you can get paid by recommending other peoples products. In most cases it happens online, as the sales are tracking via “hops” which are tracked when someone clicks an affiliate link. When someone clicked a link, they get “cookied” and tracked if they end up signing up or buying the product. That is when the affiliate who sent the person gets credited for the sale and earns a commission.
There is literally every niche available and many networks as well. While there is a sign up process for affiliates, to ensure to keep the quality high. If you would like to get easily accepted, we can give you one tip: go above and beyond in the application!
For anyone starting out, we think it is best to learn from someone experienced like Mark Ling, who has been doing everything from SEO, email marketing, media buys and much MUCH more. For the latest training you can check out the profit engine course review at GFKamerica.com.
When first starting out, there are some startup costs, but if you compare that to other types of businesses and the startup capital needed, it is very low. It also depends what type of traffic source you will be utilising as the prices vary and it also depends on the skill level you have. You can burn through $100 pretty quickly if you don’t know what you are doing. The best way you can start out is by slowly scale up once you find a profitable ad campaign without burning through a lot of cash. The strategy mentioned here was perfected by Matt McWilliams that also has a training on it and you can find more on this page.
