What Is Affiliate Marketing and How It Works

posted on

Before we start to discuss about how to be successful in affiliate marketing, we need to know What is affiliate marketing first.

Affiliate marketing involves earning a commission by promoting a product or service made by another retailer or advertiser.


It is like any other businesses.  This is not an “instantly rich” business idea.  There are a ton of skills you need to learn like traffic generating, list-building, copy-writing, page building, link tracking, data analysis and etc!


And, just like any other business, it takes time and investment on your part.  We see a lot of people teaching how to make money with affiliate marketing without a website or without creating content.  And, while some people may have a little bit of success with this, it’s honestly not going to get you very far in the long run because you have no relationship with your customers.


Building a list and creating a hub for your customers is the key to success in affiliate marketing. You are not relying solely on facebook, Instagram, or any other social media and you won’t need to keep posting on those social media too.

By creating content around the topic of the thing you are promoting, and adding value to the community, people are learning and growing and becoming attached to your brand.  Then, people are more likely to opt-in to your offers and maybe even purchase something from you when the time comes around. 


It is the value that you provide that will make you successful in affiliate marketing.
