Affiliate marketing has recently gained popularity, and for a good reason: both the publisher and company win. While it may seem difficult at first, it is something that every blogger (including lifestyle bloggers) can do. It is a good way to make money blogging.
What is Affiliate Marketing?
Affiliate marketing involves an online publisher promoting other people’s or company products and earning from a specific result. They use affiliate links to track leads, sales, clicks, downloads, or free signups. The affiliate marketer earns a commission from all or either of these results, depending on their agreement with the advertiser.
Typically, a blogger can join any of these three programs:
- Low-paying, high volume: Involves products with mass appeal. Your percentage earnings are low (for instance, 10% of the sale), but the chances of making more sales are high.
- High-paying, low-volume: Involves niche products that attract few buyers. While you won’t make many sales, you’ll still make significant earnings.
- High-paying, high-volume: Involves expensive products attracting many people, e.g., credit and debit cards. Affiliate marketers must have deep expertise in the products.
