What Is Affiliate Marketing

Affiliate marketing works by signing up a website of an internet business as an affiliate to advertise for them. 

You simply won’t be really marketing their product or services; however, you just need to pre-sell the product or services.


This means that if you register as an affiliate of an internet business and add some banners to your blog, your blog becomes just like a hoarding or signboard or an advertising house.

In contrast to billboards, internet businesses won’t pay you to post their links or banners on the blog; they’re going to pay you a commission only if an online visitor from your blog clicks the affiliate link or banner and buy the product or services an internet business is providing. 


So, in affiliate marketing you actually make money from percentage commissions when a visitor you sent to an internet business actually buys the product or join their services. An internet business then pays you a percentage commission of that product or service to help them getting a quality customer. 

Do you know benefits of being an affiliate marketer? When I started first online I only knew that affiliate marketing is a kind of home based business in which I can make money from home by selling other people's stuff online. But when I started doing work actually, I came to know that there are many more benefits being affiliate marketer online. Let's see what are those benefits of affiliate marketing and why every one want to start their own affiliate business including me.

Why I Love Affiliate Marketing Business


♦ No Handling No Shipment: 

As you are not going create your own product, you don’t need to bother about handling or shipment of products. As an affiliate, you simply send potential customers to the merchant’s website using your unique personalized affiliate link provided by affiliate program. 

♦ Zero Product Cost:  

As an affiliate, you not need to produce your own product. Because you are going make money online by the percentage commissions which you will earn from marketing/selling other people’s products or services. 

♦ Concentrate Only on Your Business: 

Payment processing or product delivery is the sole responsibility of the merchant you are working for. You do not need to worry about that, just concentrate on your business. 

No Need of Website: 

Generally, you do not need to create a website or write a sales copy, which can be quite costly if you have zero budgets. If you already got a website then it is better, simply add your affiliate links on your website and let your website work for you. But having a website is more beneficial for your online business. 

Free Promotion: 

There are loads of free ways you can promote your affiliate link online. Social medias like Facebook, twitter, Google+ and niche forums are the best free marketing site where you can open your free account, join related group of people there and start contributing. 

If you are good in convincing people you can make immediate sales too. 

No Bother about Refunds: 

Yes, as an affiliate, you don’t need to bother about requests for refunds to deal with. You do not have to be bothered about management any requests for refunds; it is the product owner’s responsibility to handle any requests for refunds. 

You get your percent commission on every product you sell. 

Thousands of Products of Your Interest: 

There are thousands of products and or services in every niche you want to promote. You can pick any product you want to sell in demand and that also match your interests or website theme.
