Making Money Online – Learn Affiliate Marketing

I started my first blog in the year 2015 and it took me almost 6 months to earn just 10$ online. Like any beginner I was new to the blogging world and didn’t knew how to make money online. Sooner I realized that “Affiliate Marketing” was the first step to making money online. It does not matter how much traffic you have on your website. The very first step of making money while blogging is affiliate marketing.

What is affiliate marketing?

Affiliate marketing is the process of earning a commission by promoting other people’s (or company’s) products. If you find a product you like, promote it to others, and earn a piece of the profit for each sale that you make.

What this means is that if you toggle and search through my affiliate bar and purchase something. I will get a little commission out of it. An affiliate program is a great way to make money on the Web. You write the content that you typically write and then link to the products that you talked about. When one of your customers clicks on the link and buys the product, you get a small commission of the sale.

What is affiliate sales?

Affiliate sales as I discussed above is the number of people coming on your website and purchasing a product from your affiliate partner. When the person purchase the product you get a commission out of it. There are many companies in the market these days which are offering affiliate tie ups. If you read my article on “Beginners WordPress” I have affiliate tip ups with 4 major hosting companies listed below.

What is an affiliate link? How do I set up affiliate programs?

All you need to to is fill up a affiliate form and you get an affiliate link which you can use on your website. This affiliate link when clicked takes the audience of your site to the affiliate site where they can purchase the products. Affiliate link is generally a link which has a unique affiliate ID which is unique to your website.

E.g. “http://www.amazon.in/Canon-EOS-700D-Digital-55-250mm/dp/B00VT61IKA?ie=UTF8&linkCode=w13&linkId=&ref-refURL=http%3A%2F%2Fshutterholic.in%2Fbhangarh-fort%2F&ref_=assoc_res_sw_zz_dka_cra_t0_result_1&tag=httpshuttin-21

If you take a closer look at the end of this link there is my affiliate ID after the word “Tag” which is httpshuttin-21.
