How to become an affiliate.
We’ve all been there. The alarm clock goes off. We wake up some unearthly hour. Drive to our place of work sitting in traffic jams, advoiding angry drivers. We get to work, slog through email after email, answering phone call after phone call, clock watching waiting for the end of the day so we can leave and go home to do the same thing all over again the next day, And that’s just the exciting jobs. What about a 12-hour shift, lifting heavy goods, or driving/delivering all day, stuck in traffic knowing there is nothing you can do about it, getting stress because you’re going to be late?
What if, instead of dealing with the monotony and stupor of the rat race to earn a few pounds, you could make money at any time, from anywhere — even while you sleep?
That’s the concept behind affiliate marketing.
Affiliate marketing is a popular tactic to drive sales and generate significant online revenue. It’s a win-win as its extremely beneficial to both brands and affiliate marketers. The new push towards less traditional marketing tactics has paid off. In fact:
• 81% of brands and 84% of publishers leverage the power of affiliate marketing, a statistic that will continue to increase as affiliate marketing spending increases year on year.
• There is a 10.1% increase in affiliate marketing spending in the United States each year, meaning that by 2020, that number will reach $6.8 billion.
• In 2018, content marketing costs were gauged to be 62% of traditional marketing schemes while simultaneously generating three times the leads of traditional methods. In fact, 16% of all orders made online can be attributed to the impact of affiliate marketing.
• In March of 2017, Amazon’s affiliate structure changed, offering rates of 1-10% of product revenue for creators, providing the opportunity for affiliates to dramatically increase their passive income based on the vertical they’re selling on..
WHAT IS AFFILIATE MARKETING?
Affiliate marketing is the process by which an affiliate earns a commission for marketing another person’s or company’s products. The affiliate simply searches for a product they enjoy, then promotes that product and earns a piece of the profit from each sale they make. The sales are tracked via affiliate links from one website to another.
