Affiliate Marketing is a marketing arrangement by which an online retailer pays commission to an external website for traffic or sales generated from its referrals, which is not to be confused with Referral Marketing which is a process to encourage and significantly increase referrals from word of mouth, perhaps the oldest and most trusted marketing strategy.
Affiliate Marketing is a worthy investment for both companies in saying that one needs to be aware of how it works. The concept is dated since 1994 and it is based on revenue sharing, hence the company makes sales and you get a commission, nowadays it has evolved in about four different ways, still involving an advert placement on someone else website, blog or forum.
1.) The owner may charge for advert placement and instead of a commission on the sale they asked you to pay per click on your advert (PPC) which can be expensive especially if no sales is generate but very profitable for the owner and yourself if your advert generate click and conversion. The owner would have to provide you with evidence that your ads was clicked and the price of 1 click and may have payment arrangement condition such as on a monthly, fortnightly or weekly bases they want to receive their payment in a designated account.
2.) The second way the owner does not charge you for placement of your advert but request about 2% to 5% of each sales you make from the advert place on their site, this would require the person who has their ads on your site to provide you with evidence of sales generated from their advert from your site and you will need has the owner to set-up a paying account online to received your commission and may have payment arrangement condition to receive your payment in your designated account such as on a monthly, fortnightly or weekly bases from the person who has their ads on your site.
3.) The third one is the owner does not charge you for placement but only for pay per click, you make a sale or not you have to pay the owner as your advert has been clicked on. The owner would have to provide you with evidence that your ads was clicked and the price of 1 click and may have payment arrangement condition such as on a monthly, fortnightly or weekly bases they want to receive their payment in a designated account. if your advert generate click and conversion you make a lots of money too.
4.) The four one is the owner charge you for placement of your ads for a certain duration with the possibility to renew your ads or change your advert after the times agreed elapse and charge you a commission about 2% to 5% on each sales the advert generate. the person who has their ads on your site will need to provide you with evidence of sales generated from their advert from your site and you may have payment arrangement condition such as on a monthly, fortnightly or weekly bases that you want to receive your payment in a designated account.
All the methods above are affiliate marketing and it is very lucrative for both parties and a nice and easy way to make passive income and money while you sleep. Hence it is a very worthwhile marketing strategy to use.
It is good to have relevant advert content pertaining to your industry or similar as it is more likely to be clicked on and melt with your site seemingly, you may also have advert unrelated to what you sell on your site they would still be click on if it is of interest to your website visitor.
It also good to offer affiliate marketing if your site generate a good number of visit per day, the person ads has more chance to be clicked on. Also it is good to place the person advert on your most visited page or in a prominent place where you know it is going to be click on.
Placement can be seen as banner ads on top of your site, or sidebar advert on your site, or in-content advert maybe in a middle of an article or at the bottom of an article, you should decide where you want to place the person ads on your site.
