In the last decade more people have become millionaires through affiliate marketing than in any other industry
Affiliate Marketing as a potential home based business for anyone looking to boost a part-time income or even create a full-time online business with very little outlay or start-up costs has everything going for it and very little against it.
But what is affiliate marketing and how does affiliate marketing actually work?
How Does Affiliate Marketing Work?
Affiliate marketing in a nutshell is all about recommending other people’s products and getting paid a commission when they make a sale from the clients you send them.
The best example of this is Amazon
Amazon will pay you a commission every time you recommend one of their products and they make a sale.
You probably don’t realize it yet but you’ve probably been Affiliate Marketing all your life!
You just haven’t been paid for it in the past!
Here’s a simple example…….
A Simple Example of Affiliate Marketing and How it Works
When was the last time you recommended a good pub or restaurant you liked and the person you recommended it to went and spent over $100 the next weekend on a nice meal?
Did the owner of the restaurant thank you the following week and give you $10 for sending him the business?
I bet the answer was a big “NO!”
Well there are thousands of companies on the internet willing to do just that and actually pay you for recommending their products and services to other people!
It’s called Affiliate Marketing.
Now Let’s Take That Example One Step Further
Just imagine if you had 10 restaurants all willing to give you $10 every time you sent them a client that had a meal and you managed to send them 10 clients each.
You’ve just made your first $1000 affiliate marketing!
Now convert that from 10 restaurants in your local neighborhood to the millions of companies on the internet just like Amazon all willing to pay you commissions for sending them buying clients.
Are you getting an idea of the vast amounts of money that gets paid out to affiliate marketers every day of the week!
