Getting Started with Affiliate Marketing


Before beginning with affiliate marketing, an understanding of what is an affiliate marketing business is required. Wikipedia describes affiliate marketing as “a type of performance-based marketing in which a business rewards one or more affiliates for each visitor or customer brought by the affiliate’s own marketing efforts.”

People who are promoting products of another company are called affiliates or sometimes partners or associates. Most affiliates promote products through their websites, with email marketing, social media, blogs or you can put a website address or a hyperlink in an advertising vehicle, the only limit is your imagination.

So we could define an affiliate marketing business as one in which we construct the means to promote products and services of other businesses to attract visitors and customers to purchase a product or service for a commision.

Affiliate marketing is a business that requires self – motivation and concentration.  For many of us, these are learned skills.
