Have you ever told someone about a shampoo that you absolutely love? Maybe someone has asked you, “where did you get that cute dress?” And you say, “I got it at Macy's!" Did you get paid whenever they went into go by that dress? Probably not, but if you are an affiliate marketer, you can!
You may be asking, "what is affiliate marketing and how does it work?"
How affiliate marketing works is you refer top brands like Macy's, Target, Reebok, Spanx, FedEx, Southwest Airlines, and when people purchase based on your referral, you receive a small referral fee. There are many companies with affiliate marketing programs.
Affiliate marketing is a great way to earn passive income online.
If you have a blog, an email list, or you just have a strong social media presence, you can share a link to one of the products that you love. When your follower clicks on your tracking link to purchase something from that link, you get a commission. How amazing is that?
Every affiliate program is different, but let me give you an example of what affiliate marketing with Amazon is like. If you're an affiliate for Amazon and someone clicks on your affiliate link, your link has a 24-hour cookie. What that means is if they purchase within 24 hours of clicking on your link, you still get a commission. But here is a bonus tip! Even if they don't buy the product you recommended, but do purchase something through your link, you still get paid on the other product!
