MAKE MONEY WITH AFFILIATE MARKETING
Affiliate marketing involves YOU promoting a merchants product or service and earning a commission on the sale. You can promote via email marketing through your subscriber list, content marketing via your blog, social media, etc.
PRO TIP: Each merchant may have restrictions on what promotion methods are allowed so make sure you always check
When it comes to affiliate marketing I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE working with an affiliate network.
It’s just so easy! Really, though, it’s a piece of cake. Here’s how it works:
- Pick an affiliate network and sign up (favorites are Flexoffers, Shareasale, and Peerfly)
- Apply to be an affiliate
- Select offers and start promoting
I love affiliate networks because you can manage all your offers in their backend dashboard. So, no logging into a million different merchant sites to check stats, commissions, etc. It’s all managed in the network dashboard.
