Have you ever wondered what this whole Affiliate Marketing craze is All about? Well... Let me help you out and get you started.
Most people come onto internet and make money by selling stuff but hey it's not easy getting your own product to sell, that's where affiliate marketing comes into it.
Affiliate marketing is great because you're selling other people's tried and tested products which they have researched and spent money developing and for doing so they pay you a percentage of sale as commission straight into your bank account for your effort. The best thing about affiliate marketing is that there is almost an unlimited number of products in a multitude of categories to choose from. That means that you can sell stuff you're interested in and have a passion for, which will make it fun and most of all you don't have to worry about nagging customers.
Let me explain general process. You sign up to sell someone's product or service, you then go about advertising and promoting that product with intention of making a sale and claiming your commission. You must be wondering… "How do they know it's me making sale?" Well when you sign up as an affiliate you get an Affiliate URL which is URL your client will click on to buy product you are promoting and all your sales get logged on promoters server.
Now that you have general idea I'm sure you're wondering how much average commission is per sale, well it all depends. If you're selling any product that is non physical you get a minimum of 50% but most products are around 60% - 70%. Physical products on other hand are a lot less 20% - 40%.
With such a selection to choose from you must always be very careful to check up on person you're selling for, or product you're promoting. There's no use promoting something that is not selling… Right? One of best ways to tell if someone is genuine is to sign up to their E-mail service and join their news group whereby you can see what sort of help they give you and how much they really know about their market.
