Wealthy Affiliate FAQs – Affiliate Marketing
What is Affiliate Marketing?
Affiliate Marketing is the promotion of products for companies by placing ads on your website and writing reviews for products.
Is it easy to become an affiliate for a company?
Most companies are glad you want to place a banner ad on your website, and they are willing to pay you a percentage commission for every sale you mediate. To be clear, when the subject of your website is pets, it will be most likely a company rejects your mediation for selling clothes.
Where do you get the products?
In fact, you review products and place ads for companies. The selling/buying and delivery of the products is not your responsibility. When a purchase is made you get a notice from the company and are paid commission.
How high is the commission companies will pay?
That can vary from 2% until almost 50%
How long does it take to make money?
Some have their first sale within a month.
That is depending on how much time you put in and in which niche you are promoting and how.
Expensive holidays and wines will likely attract more customers from promoting at rotary clubs than on ebay.
I have 7 websites, and one of them is about spirituality for kids, idealistic, a “call from the heart” website, which does sell a book once in a while. This website will not bring me financial growth, but I love my “baby”.
It depends on a lot of factors. But there is a whole community waiting to help you with ideas.
