I’ll show you how to start your online business in the best and secure way, without spending a dime or just a few dollars (if you want). So, let’s begin with some general topics:
What is Affiliate Marketing?
If you are looking to start an online business or a part time job from home, affiliate marketing would be the best way to do it.
According to Wikipedia:
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.
If you read the whole article you’ll find many terms about How To-Affiliate Marketing the proper way, considering SEO, web 2.0, affiliate links, etc.
To me, it reduces to three particular players:
The advertiser is the company that manufacture the product or sell the product or service. The publisher is the individual or the company that promotes the advertiser’s products and the consumer is the one who sees the ad and buy through the links provided by the Publisher.
I explain the process of making money online in a post I did a few months ago name: Start Free Home Based Business, if you want to visit it, please go ahead, but I’m explaining the way on How To Affiliate Marketing in the next figure.
In this image, you find out that people (the consumer) are looking for products or services, they can reach your site on the Internet (publisher) and if you are providing with good content and a good user experience they come to your site and follow your recommendation, they buy from the advertiser (the product you are recommending) and you earn a commission. It is that simple!
