What is Affiliate Marketing?

If you don’t know what is affiliate marketing, you’re missing out on a golden opportunity to make money. According to Statista, business spending on affiliate marketing will reach $8.2 billion in the US by 2022.

Affiliate marketing is a commission-based system of promoting other people’s products. You can find a product you like, promote it to others and earn a commission for each sale you make. 

An Affiliate is sometimes known as the publisher. If you ever read any product reviews on the internet, it’s very likely that the review is written by an affiliate marketer. 

Why Start an Affiliate Marketing Business?

  • Low Risk and Simple

Affiliate marketing is the easiest way to make money online because you don’t need to develop products, purchase inventory, provide after-sale service. You have nearly zero start-up cost. What that means is you don’t have any risk to start a business.

  • Many Products To Choose For Marketing 

Also, the products you can choose to market are limitless. A typical salesperson for a company usually sells products from one company but as an affiliate marketer, you can promote many products from different companies. Nowadays, most companies have affiliate programs that anyone can join and start earning commissions. By joining the Amazon Associate Program alone, you have millions of products to market.

  • Passive Income

Another cool thing is that you can make passive income with affiliate marketing. After creating content on your website that drives traffic, you can literally choose to take vacations and money will flow in automatically. You’re making money while you’re sleeping.

  • Earning Potential is Limitless

The earning potential of affiliate marketing is limitless. An affiliate marketing business can earn a  few hundred dollars in commissions each month or tens of millions of dollars. Some successful websites like Wirecutter and BuzzFeed are making a lot of money from affiliate marketing.

How Does Affiliate Marketing Work?

When you join an affiliate program, you will be given a unique affiliate link that can track who was responsible for a sale. The link includes your affiliate ID.

For example, this is an affiliate link for a platform called Wealthy Affiliate (This is the best platform that I highly recommend for beginners to start an affiliate marketing business):

31c727ab is the affiliate ID.

When someone clicks that link, a small file called a cookie gets stored on their browser. The affiliate cookie has an expiration date, so you will be compensated even if the buyer made a purchase later. You’ll earn a commission from the product supplier, usually a percentage of the product price. And customers do not pay extra because of this. 

If the product you promote is high-ticket, you can earn a lot of commission. Some companies with a subscription model even give you a recurring commission for every sale. 

It is not uncommon that some affiliate marketers can make 6 or 7 figures per year through affiliate marketing. But while this course guides you step-by-step to build your business, never expect to achieve success overnight. Every success requires hard work, time, and the right knowledge.

4 Steps to Start Your Affiliate Marketing Business

Before we start building an affiliate marketing business, I would like to give you an overview of the whole process so that you have a clear picture in mind.

In general, there are 4 major steps in starting an affiliate marketing business: 

Step 1: Choose A Niche For Your Business

The market is so broad, and we don’t have to target everything and everyone but focus on one niche for each website. A niche is a distinct segment of a market.

There are so many niches you can choose, such as health and fitness, spirituality, pet, travelling, beauty, personal development etc.

To choose a niche that fits you, ideally, it should be something you are interested in. Because you would be creating contents to promote the product and help people in the niche. If it is something you’re not passionate about, it’s hard for you to persistently create content.

Step 2: Start Building a Website

Every online business needs a website, including affiliate marketing. Your website is like your office where you provide service or products. It’s a place for you to connect with people and build your brand and trust. And you would need to drive traffic to your website so that you can promote products/services and make money. I will talk about traffic strategies in the later modules.

If you’re not a technical person, you may think building a website sounds very difficult, but fortunately, as technology becomes more advanced, you don’t need to know coding or programming to build a website because there are tools or software to help you out.

In the later modules, I will guide you step-by-step on how to build a website from scratch. Don’t worry even if you know nothing at the moment. It’s easier than you thought.

Step 3: Attract Visitors To Your Website

This is going to be our major focus because a business without traffic is not a business. There’re many different strategies you can use when it comes to driving traffic. I will show you both free and paid traffic strategies.

But in the beginning, I will focus on Search Engine Optimization (SEO), which is the most critical traffic strategy for affiliate marketing. It’s free, so it has no risk. 

If you don’t know SEO, no worries that there is a module wholly devoted to this topic.

Step 4: Monetisation

After your website gets a reasonable amount of traffic, you need to know how to convert the visitors into customers by promoting your affiliate products/services. I will talk about how to create content that converts and how to optimise the user experience of your website.

No worries if you feel a bit overwhelming. I will guide you through step by step. Remember, building a business takes time.

The major difference between those who fail and succeed is persistence. You can’t fail as long as you don’t give up. Making mistakes is fine but at the end of the day, you’ll succeed and live your dream life without worrying about money.

In the next Module, I will talk about how to research and find a profitable niche.
