QA 1 – What is Affiliate Marketing?

​What is affiliate marketing?

Affiliate marketing is the opportunity to get paid commissions for referrals of a product or service. As an affiliate marketer, your aim is to find potential customers that are looking for a particular product or service and acting as the middle-man or referrer.

Many companies are looking for affiliate marketers to help sell their products.  Companies such as Amazon, Apple, and Marriott offer affiliate programs.  Smaller companies offer commissions in the 20 – 50% range for their products.  There are companies such as ClickBank and JVzoo that consolidate organizations that offer affiliate commissions.  By signing up with these companies you can easily manage the products you sell and earn commissions on.  Pick only those products that align with your business and promote those.
