Affiliate Marketing – What does it mean?

By Mohnish On January 15, 2009 Under Affiliate Marketing

What is Affiliate Marketing?
In my opinion, affiliate marketing means the way you present a product for a company and make money when your product is purchased.

How to make money with Affiliate Marketing?
There are several ways to make money online with affiliate marketing.. I will target the main ones in this post.

1)  Website/ Content
What is basically a website/content method of  affiliate marketing? It means that you own a website which has quality visitors, good content and you blog/post about products or a certain niche and add your affiliate links/banners in them. Eg: JohnChow.com

2) Search Engine Marketing
Now what is search engine marketing? This can be done in 2 ways –

A) Buy Adwords/Premium Ads of a particular network and link it to your affiliate with a keyword. So what does this mean? When someone searches for your product keyword(eg. Web Hosting) your affiliate link comes up on the top! If the person who is searching for web hosting and your affiliate link is on the first page you will make money outta it for sure.. this is because, that person is in need of webhosting and is 99% going to buy it if your product is reputted! So spending $x/click for a keyword and making $100 confirmed is a good method of Search Engine Affiliate Marketing 😉

B) SE Marketing with your website.. The best example I could give you is my website – Webhostingoffers.org. Now how this work? 2 things are important in this one.. 1) DOMAIN 2) CONTENT. If you have a good domain and content this is the BEST WAY for affiliate marketing which hardly costs you $5-6/month for hosting and $10/year for your domain. But be careful, many affiliate companies are against this method.

3) Email Marketing
Nothing special about this one.. people offer free downloads/products and make people sign up then bombard them with spam emails containing affiliate links.

There are many more ways, but the above 3 ways are widely used. If you know anymore feel free to post below. I will do more research on Affiliate Marketing and update you guys 🙂 Till then, post your reviews and opinions on Affiliate Marketing and how you make money off it 😉
