Learn About Affiliate Marketing - The 5 Most Common Questions Asked

There are so many people out there that want to know what affiliate marketing is all about. I know this because I see some common questions being asked all the time. So I thought I would turn this into a blog post.

Here are the most common questions asked about affiliate marketing

1. What Is Affiliate Marketing? In simple terms it means promoting other companies products for a commission. When someone comes and visits your site and buts something you get a percentage of the sale.

2. How Much Does It Cost To Join An Affiliate Program? It costs nothing to join an affiliate program

3. Where Do I Find Reputable Affiliate Programs? Just like anything online you need to do some research. There are thousands of affiliate programs out there. Just about any product has an affiliate program. Lets just say you want to look for a weight loss program so it would look something like this:

Weigh Loss + Affiliate Program.

There are 2 types of affiliate programs In-house affiliate programs and 3rd party affiliate programs:

In-house This is an affiliate program that is managed by the merchant themselves. So this means that they handle all of the tracking, affiliate tools, and with payments.

3rd Party A third party network handles all the affiliate payments. It also takes care of all the tracking and reporting. The third party network also receives a small commission from the merchant for each transaction. So third party networks are very diligent when it comes to tracking, reporting and maintaining affiliate relationships. 

4. How Much Money Can I Make? It varies from person to person but it is dependent on you how much effort you put into it. Affiliate income is pretty much unlimited.

5. What Is the Best Way To Get Started With Affiliate Marketing? Before I answer this question I want to tell you that making money online is not some "get rich" quick thing. It is possible but do you have a very very strong desire to succeed? I ask you this because I know many people who have attempted to make money online and they quit before they even started. So be honest with yourself.

Do you want to have the freedom to work and do what you want?
