What is Affiliate Marketing and why should one become an affiliate marketer?
If you are a person who likes writing / talking about the products you use and are passionate about any particular range of products, then affiliate marketing is a space where you may earn an income doing what you like. For example, if you are passionate about technology and write a lot about wearable devices, you may become an affiliate marketer for the companies that sell these products. How do you go about doing this? You write a few details about the product and refer to the company’s website in your blog / article. Every time a person buys a product from the company website you receive a payment / commission. As simple as that! This is easy to start and many people make a lot of money doing affiliate marketing.
The reasons why you should try affiliate marketing-
- You do not have to own a store or maintain inventory – while you earn from the website you do not have to own any product, do the packaging or support the delivery process in any manner.
- Easy to start – Very low investment – domain costs and hosting alone initially and then a yearly maintenance fee. Of course you need to spend time maintaining the blog and writing – but thats the fun part!
- Work from any where or from the comfort of your home
- You may choose your own niche which is generally a product / subject close to your heart and easy to write about.
There just one rule for affiliate marketing – you need to be patient. Without this important trait you will find it difficult to stay on the path.
