An affiliate program is a customer acquisition tool merchants (like you) can create to generate more sales with the help of publishers (like bloggers and websites). Every time someone clicks through to your website with their link and makes a purchase, you generate a sale and they earn a commission of that sale.
How to start one –
Anyone can start selling or start an affiliate program, whether it’s physical goods, digital goods & services. The only contingency is that goods and services must be sold online through your website.
Some advantages why one should consider –
- Sales gets a big boost
- Only pay for performance
- Existing customers already want one
- Boosts brand awareness
Affiliate programs are like a side business which can make one a bit more money than usual. It does require a lot of time and effort. Partnering with the right brand is important.
