Money Maker Internet – Affiliate Marketing
Getting to make money on the internet is something everyone (and anyone) can do part time or full time especially in Affiliate Marketing.
While the first category of people (part time or hobbyist) can be said to be making money on the internet as a residual income, the second category of people (full time) make money online as a main source of income.
Whichever category you feel you belong to is not so relevant as long as you are able to make money online.
One sure way you can get to make money on the internet easily and conveniently is Affiliate Marketing.
WHAT IS AFFILIATE MARKETING?
Affiliate Marketing is when you help other people (most especially companies) promote their product (s), good (s) or services on your website in order to get customers (web surfers) to buy such product (s).
After the purchase of the product, a certain percentage (%) of the sales made is paid you by way of commission.
Thousand of companies have INFORMATIONAL PRODUCTS offered up for sale online and many such companies deploy affiliate programs as an added marketing resource to boost their sales.
To become an Affiliate Marketer, you will need to scout / search for a product you will like to promote and market to potential buyers / customers that visit your website from time to time.
After you have made your choice of which product to promote and help sell online, you will be required to sign up with the company or product owner as an Affiliate.
This way, you become a reseller seeing you now undertake to market the product and get to send customers that visit your website to the company's website in order to make a sale.
Where you get to make money online through your effort in affiliate marketing is from the commission (s) you get paid anytime a product is sold (ie the end result of the customer you directed or referred from your website to the company's website making a purchase ).
HOW AFFILIATE MARKETING WORKS?
The way Affiliate Marketing works is that as soon as you SIGN UP (which usually takes some few minutes or at times a day or two depending on the affiliate program vendor / company).
You are given an AFFILIATE IDENTITY CODE solely for your account opened with the affiliate vendor / company.
This affiliate code helps to track your online promotional effort that results in the sale of any product for the company and then, your commission is calculated and credited to your account.
You get to CHOOSE PRODUCT (S) you are interested in promoting on YOUR WEBSITE as an affiliate marketer.
Next, you copy a LINK which you will include in the HTML of your web page. When a visitor (customer) to your website clicks on this link, the customer is taken to the sales page of the company's product where the customer receives the opportunity to make a purchase.
Your affiliate identity code is embedded in the PRODUCT URL so that it is easy for the company to monitor and track your promotional effort and get to compensate you by calculating your percentage commission every time any sale is made / recorded.
Affiliate Marketing works and many people (including myself) have had the opportunity to make substantial amounts of money online from commissions paid as a result of sales effort which ended in the purchase of one product or the other.
I have not stopped anyway because I am still involved in the Affiliate Marketing business and SO CAN YOU.
Many companies (and products to promote) are available online offering affiliate programs. You can do a search for them and start making money on the internet today from Affiliate Marketing.
