Here’s a quick affiliate marketing guide for those who want to know what affiliate marketing is and how it works. This time I’ve tried to make it more pictorial. This series will be mostly aimed at PPV affiliate marketing. I’ve made $1,000’s via this method but you can pretty much make money through any Affiliate Marketing Method.
In a nutshell an ‘affiliate marketer’ promotes products and services of other companies or ‘merchant’s and receives a commission in return once a sale/lead is made’. Basically an online, ‘commission/performance based’ salesman.
This works as follows…,
Traffic Source+ Affiliate Network + Sale = Commission
I’m sure some of the below companies will look VERY familiar. These companies allow you to make ‘ad units’, which they will then display all around the world for you. you are charged for every person that clicks your ad, hence the term ‘pay-per-click’ affiliate marketing.
