DISCLOSURE: This post may contain Affiliate links, ie., I earn a commission if you decide to make a purchase and sometimes if you just click on a clink at no additional cost to you. Please read my Disclosure for more info.
Affiliate marketing is a type of performance-based marketing in which a business rewards one or more affiliates for each visitor or customer brought by the affiliate’s own marketing efforts.
Essentially you sign up as an affiliate and when someone clicks on your link and purchases, you make money. In addition, someone may click on the link (pay per click) and you make money for each click.
Take a moment and watch the Youtube video below, clearly, that is not my face or voice, he does give a great overview of affiliate marketing. Make sure you subscribe to his channel as well.
Why Should Affiliate Marketing Matter To Bloggers
Affiliate marketing is one of the main ways that bloggers generate income on their sites. Affiliate marketing is probably the most important aspect of your blog site in addition to having great content. No affiliates equate to no money, no dineros, χρήματα, fedha or argent. Having a solid line up of affiliates that enhance your blog is key.
Think of it this way, if you are blogging about Weight loss- you probably don’t want to have affiliate links to tons of restaurants, or maybe you do. However, you may want to have an affiliate link with Weight Watchers or even Samsung Earbuds that track weight loss or an app for weight loss or even an affiliate that pays for weight loss such as Healthy Wage. Is this starting to make sense?
Since I mentioned Healthy Wage – Let’s converse about them for a minute. Everyone is looking to get healthy and everyone wants extra coins. When you combine the two together you get Healthy Wage. Click on this affiliate link and think about what you see. Healthy Wage. I write blog posts that are inclusive of my various affiliate sponsors without throwing them in your face.
If you are considering starting a blog site, then you will want to add ShareASale as an affiliate.
Find a sponsor for your web site. Get paid for your great content. That is what ShareASale helps you to achieve.
This is just a small sampling of affiliate links, but it should give you a good idea of how affiliate links work. If you still have questions, please feel free to contact me at [email protected]
