Affiliate marketing is a form Internet advertising that rewards the affiliates for driving traffic to their product. The advertiser pays the affiliate marketer to place a link on their website, typically after in sale. In some cases, the seller will pay each time the link is clicked by a “new” person as long as there are no duplicate IP addresses. Simply put, it’s about rewarding the affiliate in commissions to people who help them make sales. It’s that easy. Okay, not really.
Affiliate marketing can be great if you know what you are doing (on both the advertisers part and the seller of the product). It could be a real pain if you updated with information and the technicalities of how it all works. But the point of this is to reach out and inform you and not to talk about the down-side affiliate marketing.
Here are the following reasons on why online marketers are going crazy over affiliate marketing.
1. It can be low cost or even free to advertise
Many are scared to go on a home based business because of the capital required. In affiliate marketing, you don’t have to spend much, if anything to start making money.
2. You don’t have to have inventory
Product management can be very stressful. You don’t have to have inventory or ship products when you are an affiliate for someone else. The merchant does all the handling of the product.
3. Unlimited income
When you have a regular job, your monthly income mainly relies on whether you go to work or not. With affiliate marketing, you can just lead traffic to your site without having to do much of anything after you do your advertising. Though not every web marketer earns thousands-of-dollars a day, it is still a fact that most affiliates, if they do it right, will become very successful.
4. Affiliates can advertise Worldwide
With affiliate marketing, you are dealing with the global marketplace. All you have to do is choose a product that you are interested in promoting and prepare all the necessary tools to lead traffic from just about anywhere in the world.
5. The risk is either low or there is no risk
The main reason for Internet marketer’s excitement with affiliate marketing is having a very little to no risk. Especially for those with low budget set aside for advertising, affiliate marketing is just the way to do it.
6. No open and closing signs
With affiliate marketing, your business works every single minute of the day and night while targeting the entire world!
