What is affiliate marketing? –

Introduction πŸ‘‹

Affiliate marketing is where you use a close relationship to promote/sell things.

Affiliate = close relationship.

Marketing = promoting.

So affiliate marketing essentially means – “close relationship promoting”.

Have you ever seen a famous Youtuber recommend their favourite shampoo online?

“Go to the link below for a discount!”.

This is affiliate marketing.

The Youtuber uses their close relationship with their followers to promote products.

If you go to the link for a discount, the Youtuber will get paid a small amount of money.

If someone gets paid to promote products on their social media, this is called affiliate marketing.

They will usually get paid for each sale that they make from their posts.

Using affiliate marketing to make money πŸ’Έ

If you have a lot of followers, affiliate marketing can be an easy/quick way to make money online.

Big companies like Amazon offer “affiliate marketing programmes” that you can sign up to.

These programmes let you promote their products, and make money from the things people buy.

It’s important to try and only recommend products that:

  • you actually like
  • your followers will find useful
  • your followers can afford

otherwise they might lose interest in you.

Also, try to avoid promoting products all the time – your followers might get fed up and lose interest!

It’s all about finding the right balance between entertaining your followers and promoting things for them to buy.

Conclusion πŸ‘
