How Affiliate Marketing Works

There is a plethora of information out there on affiliate marketing, but the problem is with so much information there is going to be bad information, really good information, confusing information, and information that lies somewhere in between.

I have been running successful businesses within the affiliate marketing space for the last 7 years, and during this time not a lot has changed, to be honest.  The same “simple formula” that worked back then, continues to work to this day.  You have a product, and you have a customer.  Your job as an affiliate marketer is to align these two things.  That’s it!

Here is a diagram outlining how affiliate marketing works:

How Affiliate Marketing Works

Now I am oversimplifying this a little, but I am doing this for a reason.  I don’t want you to be scared of the word “affiliate marketing”, because you are just as capable of creating a full-time and very successful affiliate marketing business as me.  All you need is the right training, the right guidance, and the right tools necessary to get you there. 

The thing is, affiliate marketing at its core is very simple.  There are a few terms that you will want to become familiar with.

Affiliate (YOU).  You are the affiliate, this means that you can join companies like Etsy, eBay, Walmart, and Amazon (and 10,000’s of others) and promote their products and services.  When you join these companies’ Affiliate Programs, they will give you a special “affiliate link” that is exclusive to you and allows you to track all of the sales you generate.  

Affiliate Program (a company like Amazon).   Most companies have an affiliate program, 99% of all of the brands in the world in fact can be promoted online and you, as an affiliate, can earn a commission.   Amazon is one of the biggest affiliate programs in the world and will allow you to promote 100’s of MILLIONS of products, with a single account.  Pretty awesome right?  

Earning Affiliate Commissions. Affiliate programs will give you a kickback if you can send people to their website, and they end up buying something. Say you send someone to Amazon through your affiliate link, and they end up buying a fridge, Amazon will pay you a % of the total sale.  Amazon offers around 3-6% commissions, so a transaction like this may yield you $50-100 (depending on the price of the fridge).    Depending on the company and affiliate program, they will typically pay between 2% and 75% in commissions. 

Unlimited Potential.  As an affiliate marketer, your potential has no limit.  The more people you can get buying through your affiliate links, the more money you make.  Many affiliate marketers make several million dollars per year, and this can be a reality for anyone that is willing to put forth the effort to build an affiliate marketing business.  But HOW do you build an affiliate marketing business?  I am going to cover that in the next section. But first…

The 4-Steps to Starting a Successful Affiliate Marketing Business

4 Steps to Creating a Business

So how can YOU create your own successful affiliate marketing start-up?   There are actually only 4-steps to creating a successful affiliate marketing business, and if you can follow these and have access to the training, tools and support necessary to run your business (which I will be helping you with), you are going to be off and running! So I am not only going to be giving you the exact steps but helping you understand how you can accomplish these steps.

Step 1: Choose an Idea and Unleash Your Passion

Before diving into the world of affiliate marketing, you need an idea that ignites your enthusiasm. This is your chance to turn your passion into a thriving online business. With close to 5 BILLION people online, even the most niche interests have vast audiences waiting to be engaged. At Wealthy Affiliate, we guide you through the process of selecting a profitable niche that aligns with your interests. Say goodbye to mundane work, and embark on a fulfilling journey where your passion fuels your success.

This could be anything, from training a puppy to basketball sports betting to video games, etc.  There are literally millions of potential directions that you can head with your business.  This is the exciting part.

I tend to recommend to people that they choose a passion/interest as their niche.  This way, you will truly love your business and when you love what you do, you never have to “work” a day in your life.  The Internet and the affiliate marketing industry have afforded us all this very opportunity. 

How to Choose Your Idea: 
Choose a niche or a passion.  There are close to 5 BILLION people online now, so even the most obscure niches have vast audiences.  If you are a member of Wealthy Affiliate, you have direct video classes walking you through the niche selection process along with direct help from the community (and myself) who can give you feedback on your niche. 

Step 2: Build a High-Performing Website – Your Online Storefront

Your website serves as the foundation of your affiliate marketing business, just like a physical storefront. It’s where you connect with your audience, provide valuable content, and showcase products or services.

At Wealthy Affiliate, we provide you with the tools and training to build a professional website that attracts visitors and converts them into loyal customers. With our high-speed hosting and expert guidance, your online presence will have the competitive edge needed to thrive in the digital landscape.

If you don’t have a website, you don’t stand any hope of running an online business.  It is the first and key necessity you need to create a long-term business. 

How to Accomplish:  You can build high-performing and profit-ready websites with ease, at Wealthy Affiliate.  You can even get up and running with one for completely free, within the Starter account.  Another perk to using the website platform over at Wealthy Affiliate is that their hosting (where your website lives) is high-speed and ranks better than other providers.  This can give you a competitive advantage and can lead to a lot more opportunities as you build out your website. 

Step 3: Master the Art of Driving Traffic to Your Website

With your website up and running, it’s time to bring in the traffic that fuels your success. At Wealthy Affiliate, we teach you the art of search engine optimization (SEO) to rank your website higher on search engines like Google and Bing.

This long-term, sustainable traffic source can bring a consistent stream of visitors to your site, opening the door to countless opportunities. Our comprehensive training also covers social media, video marketing, and other traffic generation strategies, empowering you to reach a wider audience and maximise your website’s potential.

So this is the next focus, once you have your website up and running.  Building out your website in a way that leads to traffic.

How to Accomplish:
You need proper “traffic” training, along with a website that is set up to rank well within search engines.  These are both things that are provided within Wealthy Affiliate, you have access to elite SEO training, along with classes and access to experts that will personally help you with your traffic campaigns.  

Plus, there are many other ways you can get traffic to your website as you build it out.  Social media channels, YouTube and video blogging, podcasts, and paid traffic channels.  These are all covered in detail within the training at Wealthy Affiliate

Step 4: Monetise Your Passion – Earn Affiliate Commissions

Now comes the exciting part – monetizing your passion and earning affiliate commissions. As an affiliate marketer, you can promote over 550 MILLION products and services through reputable affiliate programs like Amazon, Nike, and eBay. With each sale generated through your unique affiliate links, you earn a commission.

The affiliate marketing industry is experiencing explosive growth, with affiliates projected to earn $12 BILLION online this year alone. At Wealthy Affiliate, we equip you with the knowledge and resources to identify the best affiliate programs and optimise your website for maximum conversions, ensuring you claim your share of this lucrative market.

How to Accomplish: 
 Finding affiliate programs can be an inefficient task at the best of times. You typically have to go through a bunch of Google searches, just to find what you are looking for.  Within Wealthy Affiliate, you have instant access to an Affiliate Program search where you can search through 10,000+ affiliate programs, across some of the top affiliate networks online. 

Not to mention, the training you will be getting on how to properly integrate affiliate promotions into your website to maximize conversions….along with some insight into the customer purchase lifecycle, and critical information if you want to become a high-performing, and successful affiliate marketer online.
