So what is Affiliate Marketing?

Affiliate marketing is an online sales strategy that lets a brand increase sales by allowing others to earn a commission for recommending its products.

In simpler terms, if you’ve ever recommended a book, a service, or a product to a friend or family member, you’ve engaged in the basic principle of affiliate marketing. 

[/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version=”4.21.0″ _module_preset=”default” width=”65%” custom_padding=”19px||19px|||” global_colors_info=”{}”][et_pb_column type=”4_4″ _builder_version=”4.21.0″ _module_preset=”default” global_colors_info=”{}”][et_pb_text _builder_version=”4.21.0″ _module_preset=”default” header_2_font=”Poppins|600|||||||” header_2_font_size=”31px” header_2_letter_spacing=”1px” header_2_line_height=”1.2em” global_colors_info=”{}”]

How does it work? 

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_text _builder_version=”4.21.0″ _module_preset=”default” text_font=”Poppins|300|||||||” text_text_color=”#212427″ text_font_size=”19px” text_line_height=”1.9em” custom_margin=”||-11px|||” custom_padding=”||32px||false|false” border_color_bottom=”#6dd8e4″ locked=”off” global_colors_info=”{}”]

There are three key players in this process:

1. The Brand: Also known as the seller, the retailer, or the vendor. This could be a large company, like Apple, or a small business owner who has created a unique product.

2. The Affiliate/Influencer: Also known as the publisher. This could range from a large company to an individual. Affiliates promote the merchant’s product in a way that’s appealing to potential consumers.

3. The Consumer: The most critical part of the puzzle. Without sales, there aren’t any commissions to hand out, and no revenue to share.

The affiliate marketing process is straightforward:

1. The brand Provides an Affiliate Link: The brand gives the affiliate a unique link that tracks any sales resulting from the affiliate’s promotional efforts.

2. Affiliate Promotes the Product: The affiliate shares this link via blog posts, social media, websites, or email newsletters, directing potential customers to the product or service.

3. Consumer Makes a Purchase: A consumer clicks on the affiliate’s link and makes a purchase.

4. Affiliate Receives a Commission: The brand pays the affiliate a portion of the sales price for each purchase made via the affiliate’s unique link.
