What is Affiliate Marketing and How Does it Work?

Affiliate marketing is basically the promotion of other people’s products or services for a commission, in essence,

you are helping them to sell not only their product but MORE of their products and services.

First and foremost, it is important to know the role you play and who you will be,

Who is the Publisher

An affiliate marketer is known to marketing networks as the publisher

Your role is to promote the products and create sales for commissions.

Who is the Advertiser

An advertiser is the owner of a product or service, a company or business, for example, coca-cola is the advertiser and you the affiliate marketer is the publisher,

you will promote and make public coco-cola drinks and get a commission for the sales.

Affiliate Network

Intermediates between the Advertisers and Publishers.

Types of Affiliate Networks

Some of the most popular affiliate networks are:

this is one of the most popular Cost Per Action/CPA affiliate networks, this network has great quality affiliate offers in every possible niche,

the company vett each applicant to ensure they are using the correct means to promote their products,

there are many ways to promote you can use a good blog giving a review of the product,

or you can also promote via a Facebook group/Facebook page, Pinterest, e-mail marketing, and many other ways.

Click Bank

Here is a video on how to sign up to Click Bank below

– would you believe there are over 6 million publishers on Click bank?  over 200 million customers globally and over 270 product categories? wow… you can sign up as a vendor/advertiser or an affiliate/publisher if you follow #11  easy steps to create an ebook and want to have an affiliate promote and sell it for you,

Click bank would be one of those places you can do that, it’s a great place to sell low-cost digital products,

almost any and everything can be sold on click bank, apps, tutorials, games, and templates click here for more information.

In short yes,  you can make a killing on the network.


see the below video of how to sign up for JVZoo

– this platform facilitates over 9 million products! Similar to Click bank you can also sell as an affiliate or an advertiser on this JVZoo,

although they seem to have a greater focus on digital products, JVZoo usually charges 5% of advertisers/vendors sales,

if you want to publish products from this platform and you find a product you like make sure it doesn’t have a high refund rate,

that’s very likely a bad product, research reviews of the product and how it is doing on the market first.

what I really like about JVZoo is that they have their own academy teaching the users of its platform how to make money online, using the platform.

Commission Junction 

this platform paid out over 100 million dollars last year to affiliate marketers….they’re making a killing over there!

commission junction doesn’t offer training or much support but they have thousands of offers, so it’s best to sign up here when you get the hang of what you are doing,

you have to apply in order to be approved before you can promote, most offers want qualified affiliates to promote their offers on verified up standing platforms,

so when you sign up they ask questions like how many products you have promoted before? how do you intend to promote their products and such.

below are some screenshots of the process to apply to commission Junction

Affiliate Marketing is a concept wrapped around the idea of revenue sharing.

In simple words, affiliate marketing is a type of performance or commission-based marketing where you promote a company or person’s product or service

and get paid a cut if they make a sale through you.

Today affiliate marketing is one of the fastest-growing digital marketing strategies with 15% of the entire digital media advertising revenue linked to it.

It’s a great way to sell products and services, without having to make the product or handle customer support which is pretty sweet if you ask me!

Affiliate marketing is booming and pretty much everyone has jumped on the bandwagon. Statistics show that by 2022,

business spending on affiliate marketing is estimated to reach $8.2 billion in the U.S alone.

Now that you probably have an understanding of what affiliate marketing is, let’s get a clearer picture of how it works.

Once you’ve established that you want to venture into affiliate marketing, you need to choose a network and a product that you truly believe in.

The network will give you a unique link. A distinctive link is necessary as it allows the network to track how many sales you made and then will pay you accordingly.

There are independent tools that allow you to track your own progress as well, which tells you how many people clicked on your link,

how many conversions were made, and even your estimated sales.

Start By Choosing a Network


you want to know what is affiliate marketing and how to start, the first thing to do is to choose a network, after choosing from one of the many networks,

sign up and decide on what niche you would like to promote, whether health,

fitness, weight loss, lifestyle…there are so many categories to choose from, it all depends on which niche you want to promote in,

after choosing a niche, find a product you like, even do some research on it, google the product reviews, youtube it as well

see how popular it is, then get and use your unique link for the product from the network to promote it using one of these channels

your unique link will look like this    >>         https://www.maxbountyuniquelink?cf_affiliate_id=g80f8l9&affiliate_id=4801271

research shows that people will much rather click on an attractive customized link rather than a long unattractive link,

like this, for example,     >>    https://www.maxbounty/pet toys,

or red shoes, customized to the name of the product you were selling, some of the tools used to customized affiliate links are called link shorteners,

such as Bitly, TinyURL, Rebrandly, or Pretty links, Pretty Links is a very popular affiliate plugin for managing many affiliate links right from your WordPress dashboard,

here are their prices below, there is a FREE version that works quite well for newbies with only a few links, but when you are ready to rumble,  you may need a paid plan

image of Pretty links prices

Have you decided on how to promote your affiliate link?  Whether via social media, advertising network, Blog, landing page, or YouTube channel?

it’s time to choose and decide the channels you need to advertise your link and which one you feel most comfortable with,

now remember to focus on one and master it, do not be jumping around from one form of advertising to another like punka! choose one and stick to it…ok!

Advertising  Network


You need to pick an advertising network where you can create a following of a niche audience in order to promote the product you choose.

This step depends entirely on where you think you can create a large enough audience and where you think you’ll be able to find your target audience.

Your choice of platforms doesn’t have to be restricted and you always have the option of maneuvering and finding out what works best.

There are many different networks an affiliate can use to advertise their products and banners to their landing pages, blog, funnel, webinar, or signup forms.

Some free advertising platforms are

Social media (if you have a great following)


Search traffic

Some paid advertising platforms are:

Pay Per Click (PPC)

Pay Per View (PPV)

Native ads

Email marketing

Search Engine Marketing (SEM)

Banner advertising

Social media

Tracking Network

Sign up for a tracking network as well, a tracking network is used to manage and track all of your unique affiliate links,

they show when and how many conversions a particular link has,

and where that traffic came from, affiliate tracking tools are used by both affiliates as well as advertisers,

to give each other peace of mind that no shaving is happening on either side,

what is Shaving? in essence thieving…this can happen when an affiliate sends for example 100 conversions,

but some networks do shaving as a precaution not to overpay so they may set their tracking tools to record 90% rather than the full 100% also,

to be fair some affiliates also send illicit traffic or traffic from there the advertiser said not to use.

Pick a Niche

For newbies – a niche is your target market, it can be to teenage boys who like x-boxes, or to persons who loves dogs – but more specifically a particular breed of dogs would be a better-targeted niche, a better target market, like persons who loves golden retrievers or pugs for example, please let me know in the comments if you understand.

Your choice of niche ideally should be something that you have some prior knowledge about and are passionate about.

However, you also want to pick something more specific and relatively uncommon, as there is a considerable amount of competition out there.

Create Exciting Content

This is the most important role you can play in order to ensure that you are able to draw the maximum amount of traffic and spark interest in your product.

So whether you are using a blog or a landing page makes it attractive, and of great content adding value to the lives of your visitors or customers.

You need to create content that focuses on providing value, some bonuses, maybe some freebies first, THEN selling,

which in return will help establish credibility (so that readers buy from you) and also will help to scale your blog landing page, or Facebook ad,

whichever platform you choose to promote your product,  You also need to make sure that the content you publish stands out from the crowd & is interesting to read.

Consider writing in a conversational tone to draw more engagement.

REMEMBER, everyone hates desperate salesmen so don’t be pushy offer great value and bonuses and customers and clients will seek you out,

when including affiliate links in your content, make sure to only include them if they fit in naturally and are not forced, you want your content to floow

Take Actions to Drive Traffic


Once you’ve created excellent content, landing page, or marketing campaign you need to drive your niche traffic and the right demographics to your promotion.

The right demographic and target niche will not magically find your products, hence make sure to spend more time on marketing than publishing content.

Here are some #6 common ways through which you can drive traffic to your affiliate landing pages or blog posts.

1. Paid Traffic

You can generate paid traffic through pay-per-click ads (PPC).  This is a paid way of boosting traffic to your web pages with affiliate links.

Make sure to only invest in platforms where you believe your target audience is. The best part about pads ads that you only pay for the times your ad was clicked on.

2. Email Marketing

Email marketing is a relatively cheap and effective way to draw traffic to your affiliate link and promote your products.

Through e-mail marketing, you can send your affiliate e-mail promotions to a large number of people along with building a relationship with new and old customers.

3. SEO

Search engine optimization is probably the most cost-efficient way to drive traffic to your affiliate link, landing page, blog or promotion product.

SEO is using a google search engine to optimize keywords in your affiliate links and content to gain organic (free) targeted traffic,

as this type of traffic is search traffic, which means people are specifically searching for what you have to offer,

they literally typed into the search engine asking Google to provide them with a particular answer and because your content was optimized with keywords,

Google’s algorithm your page came up on the list to choose from.

4. Social Media

Using popular social media platforms are an excellent way to promote and bring light to your affiliate link.

Instagram alone has 1 billion users. Imagine the number of people you could reach and that the amount of traffic you could draw if you promote your affiliate link on social media.

However, initially, you will have to make an effort in order to build a following and a loyal audience.

5. Webinars

By simply going live you can do wonders for the members of your audience. You can simply host a webinar on Facebook,

YouTube, or any other platform and simply talk about your product.  You can even interact with your audience, answer all their queries, and build a relationship with them.

Source: 99firms.com

60% of webinars are geared to creating loyal customers, and communication webinars have a conversion rate of 67.05%

6. YouTube Channel

Research shows that 50% of consumers research a product on YouTube before they make the purchase,

Affiliate marketers can create a YouTube channel to review the products they are promoting, showing the benefits as well as the cons of the product,

depending on what the product is you can do an open box review, showing how to use the product, this can be a simple way to create awareness about your products and drastically increase sales.

 Encourage Clicks

Start by using CTA – call to action letting people know what to do and where to do it, examples of CTA’s are “shop now” buttons,

“click here” buttons, “sign up”, “fill out this form”, “get your newsletter” etc.

This can be done by strategically placing banners and call to action buttons or links on the top or beginning of the content (above the fold),

so that the likeliness of being clicked increases.

Another method of encouraging clicks are incentives, bonuses and giving away extras, who doesn’t like bonus and extras right?

I sure do, offer me a sale, bonus or extra and you’ve got me hooked! lol…

You can even get creative with callout boxes to draw more attention and increase the chances of getting clicked.

Showing people how they can benefit from a product or affiliate promotion will certainly get them clicking away, after all, it’s to their benefit right?

So whether the product is to better their health, make their lives easier, or improve a current situation they will “get to clicking”

Advantages of Affiliate Marketing

There are many benefits of becoming an affiliate marketer, here are a few:

  • Excellent source of passive income

It requires a few hours per day and something you can do on the side to make some extra cash

Many affiliate marketers tend to leave their day job as they get better and doing affiliate marketing because affiliate marketing tends to pay better

and has more freedom and flexibility than a regular job.

  • Easy Entry

Unlike other businesses or ventures, the investment cost is minimal or has a low startup cost

no degree, certificate, or former knowledge to start

Sometimes it’s a simple one-time tutorial cost or a monthly membership to start.

  • Expertise

You don’t need expertise, affiliate marketing is something you learn and get the hang of along the way.

The skill of being able to create interesting and quality content is definitely a bonus but it is most certainly a skill that you can acquire over a period of time.

Another method is as simple as to have someone – a mentor teach you step by step, over a short period of time, or by using video tutorials, zoom, and such.

  • Flexible

Affiliate marketing can be done from your bed in the wee hours of the morning or from your hotel room around the world and you are on vacation or touring,

it has very, very flexible hours, There isn’t a fixed time to do anything, you can take things on and do them at your own pace.

You can switch up niches or platforms and invest your time in something that you thoroughly enjoy and believe in.

You can literally work from anywhere in the world! Once you have a laptop and proper internet connection,

you are good to start making some dollars to pay for your next trip.

  • Fixed automatic payments

payments are usually automatic to PayPal upon each sale or can either be weekly or monthly depending on the platform you are using

Disadvantages of  Affiliate Marketing

  • Time Consuming

Depending on the niche it can take a long time to set up as well as to start seeing an income, say blogging for example.

  • Expensive Tools

Affiliate tools can run expensive on a monthly basis

  • Entry fee can be expensive

some entry fees can be a one-time fee but that one-time fee can run fairly expensive.
