How many modes of income do you have? One? Two? Affiliate Marketing can be your bonus.
As simple as your marketing skills, Affiliate Marketing can help you earn even when you are looking the other way, and that includes making money in your sleep. Thanks to Social Media and the online world, you become omnipresent, hence, you can leverage on that without any limit.
- What is Affiliate Marketing?
A performance-based marketing process where your income depends on your marketing efforts. You get the commission on promoting brands as and when brands benefit from your referral. It’s a win-win program. The sales are tracked via affiliate links from one website to another.
- How do you earn from Affiliate Marketing?
If you have a brand and you want to sell more of your products, you have to create awareness of your brand. For that, you sign up for an affiliate program and make the payment when the conversion happens.
If you don’t have a brand, you can promote the brand from the affiliate program and earn money when people purchase the products through your referral. Both parties make a profit, but in-depth, there are four parties involved; the merchant, the network, the publisher, and the customer.
- How does it work?
The four parties involved roll the wheel of Affiliate Marketing. The Merchant aka the brand creates the product and looks for ways to sell it. They start looking for networks and find the right publisher aka the affiliate, who puts the product in their platform to attract customers and potential buyers. The money that comes from the number of customers who purchase the product is shared among the brand and the affiliate.
With DCMnetwork here, you can either choose to be a merchant or a marketer. You can give free products and a commission to the marketers, who are bloggers and people of influence, to promote your product. Or, you can sign up as an affiliate marketer, use these products and earn your way to the top.
- How to become an Affiliate Marketer?
You have to build your online audience, else, who will you refer it to? And how?
So, getting started in the world of affiliate marketing means building your platform. Whether you’re starting a website, a blog, or running ads, you need to have substantial content for your audience to remain interested. And, to do that, you need to choose your niche for a target audience. Find out what you believe in. For example, if you’re a vegan and love using vegan products, promote that. Do what you believe in and becoming an affiliate marketer will be an easy job.
- How do affiliate marketers get paid?
There is no fixed method for this. It could be any of the following ways.
- Pay per sale
This is the standard affiliate marketing module where the merchant pays the affiliate a percentage of the sale price of the product after the consumer purchases the product following the affiliate’s marketing effort. The payment is done only after the affiliate actually gets the investor to invest in the product.
- Pay per lead
Pay-per-lead affiliate programs compensate the affiliate based on the conversion of leads. The affiliate must drive the consumer to visit the merchant’s website and complete the desired action, such as signing up, subscribing, downloading, and purchasing for the affiliate to be compensated.
- Pay per click
Based on the increase in web traffic, this program focuses on getting the affiliate to redirect consumers from their marketing platform to the merchant’s website. This means the affiliate must engage the consumer in such a way that they will move from the affiliate’s site to the merchant’s site.
