I believe that you come to this article must be like me, want to make money, build passive income, and are interested in an Internet business?
This article mainly tells you where 80% of the income of our bloggers comes from.
What Is Affiliate Marketing?
If you come across a stranger who carries a laptop everyday, sits in a coffee shop with his fingers flying around the keys, and does not need to go to work in the company, you will be envious, right?
That is what I am heading towards now, and I am already on my way.
Here, let me make the simplest analogy for everyone to understand. Today you want to go abroad to Bangkok, looking for accommodation, but you don’t know which hotel is better. At this time, you will definitely go to Google Search Bangkok Hotel Recommendation, and then Google will pop up many articles related to this keyword.
Then you will click on articles about accommodations from the search interface on the first page, such as :[Top 10 Bangkok Hotels Recommended] and so on. With the introduction of the article’s moderator, you could pick up suitable hotels from it quickly.
At the bottom of the article, an order link must be attached (usually this is the exclusive alliance ID of the moderator). After choosing the hotel you like, you will click on the link below to book the hotel, and then the commission will be generated. This is how affiliate marketing makes money and become a promoter.
Affiliate marketing is also called AP-Affiliate Program, like the middle-man between bloggers and retailers. Commission rate and time of payment depend on plan of platform. You could select platform to cooperate on your own, e.g RewardStyle, Pongoshare, ShopStyle.
I recommend the Pongoshare most. The platform has built the relationships with the retailers and wish bloggers and influencers take participate in their program to promote these retailers. Pongoshare is a platform for bloggers who focuses on various kinds of field, such as fashion, lifestyle, and beauty.
This does not mean that all links are affiliate links, because like the links I have attached, some are not affiliate products, but are purely shared types, which are added according to the needs of the article to facilitate the needs of readers.
Who Can Do affiliate marketing?
Everyone uses different time, and the process of self-exploration is different, so the result will be different. I’d like to say, it is suitable for people who are willing to put in effort and time to manage. However, if you’re not, drop as soon as possible.
Affiliate marketing is not something you can immediately see huge income in 1-3 months, even if there is, it may not be much.
For novices, you are almost groping and trying in the first 3 months. In this period, you can constantly test the market to find out the best way to make money for you. Like the moderator or blogger who promotes hotels, the commission for coming to the alliance is quite low. If a hotel is successfully promoted, the income may be only a few dollar or a dozen dollar. They rely on the perseverance of “gathering sand into a tower~”
What Conditions Do I Need?
Except for patience and persistence, you don’t need to know anything. Rather than say what is needed, let me tell you what is not needed. Because I registered the Pongoshare, I will go ahead base on it.
● No need to have any work experience/education
● No need to have any followers or fans
● No need to have a large capital & smooth cash flow like doing business
Affiliate marketing does not require real contacts. It allows every ordinary person to make money, but it is not immediate, nor is it really simple. It must rely on time and your persistence. Will see the results.
Analyze the Advantages and Disadvantages of affiliate marketing
- No products are required( as I told you above)
- Ultra-low cost
Regardless of micro-business, direct sales, MLM, online sales,etc., you need a sum of money to purchase goods to start, and affiliate marketing can have your own website and start running this business.
- No need to be responsible for the purchase, sales process, after-sales service, etc.
We just help to promote the product, and the physical transaction process does not need to go through us.
- You don’t need any followers or fans
Affiliate marketing does not need any fans to start operations, and there is no need to pull down the line and find someone to buy. You post your articles on social platform or Google, let others search for, and then get free traffic. When they order by your links, you will have income. For example, you could search things you like on the Pongoshare, then use the proprietary tool to generate your own links. With Pongoshare, bloggers make a small commission (usually 7-20%) from purchases made through their links.
- This is a passive income
There are too many marketing under the word ”passive income” in the market. In fact, many of them are not completely. I have contacted some of them my self, and after in-depth understanding, I found that they are all deceptive.
But affiliate marketing is real, and it can really achieve complete passive income. Because platform stays up 24 hours a day, as long as your articles are on the search interface, readers will always click into your articles to come to your links.
- Free time
As long as you have a computer and internet, you can work wherever you go. You don’t need to clock in to work, don’t need to have a boss, can work for yourself anytime, anywhere.
- General merchandise, low commission ratio
Usually with affiliate marketing platforms, the commissions they give are about 3.5%-7%, and the percentage you can get depends on how many levels your order reaches.
But don’t worry, many bloggers, the commissions for the products they promote are actually not high, but they have a good income. Because if the website traffic continues to maintain or increase, the commission amount will definitely not be small.
You also have to understand one thing, the more expensive the product, the lower the demand. The cheaper the product, the higher the demand.
As an old saying goes, not everyone is rich, just like not everyone is willing to spend thousands of dollars to buy an Apple mobile phone.
- It takes time( I have already told you before)
It has to say, hard work plus persistence must have results. I dare not talk about other industries, but 99% of alliance marketing. Only if your method is right and stick to it, trust me, it will be possible.
However, if you are a friend who wants to make quick money in 3 mins, then I suggest you not to start.
