Affiliate marketers promote other businesses products in return for a commission for each sale made.
It’s a popular strategy to drive online sales and increase your revenue without a website. And can be highly beneficial to the affiliate marketer and the business owner.
Using an affiliate marketer is a simple process.
Simply choose the products you’d like to sell and can afford to pay a commission on. Then research affiliate marketers who’ve got an established presence in your market niche. I’ll tell you how next.
Firstly, always be clear about the terms of your affiliate program (how much you’re willing to pay and how you’ll pay) and sign a contract up front. There are several ways to find affiliates:
1. Work with an affiliate recruitment agency – These agencies live and breathe finding and recruiting affiliates for brands.
2. Join affiliate networks and directories – Join popular affiliate networks like ShareASale, ClickBank, or CommissionJunction, and affiliates will find you.
3. Influencers – Influencers are people with strong online followership based on their expertise or popularity in a specific niche and can be found on social media platforms like Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, Snapchat, etc.
4. Niche blogs – Using an established blog relevant to your niche is a great way to promote products directly to interested consumers.
The best payment strategy for business owners is the pay-per-sale option, meaning a commission is paid for each product sold.
Speaking of the commission, the better the affiliate, the more commission you’ll pay, and the more you’re willing to pay, the better the affiliate you’ll attract.
Commissions vary by industry, averaging between 1% and 70%! So do your research before settling on a commission rate.
