Have you ever told someone about a shampoo that you absolutely love? Maybe someone has asked you, “where did you get that cute dress?” To which you reply the store your purchased it from.
Did you get paid whenever they bought 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 programs work is you refer top brands and when people purchase using your affiliate link, you receive a small referral fee. There are many companies with affiliate marketing programs like Macy's, Target, Reebok, Spanx, FedEx, Southwest Airlines, and Amazon.
Affiliate marketing is a great way to earn passive income online.
If you have a blog, an email list, or 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 what you recommended, you get a commission. How amazing is that?
Every affiliate program is different. For example, Amazon offers a 24-hour cookie. What that means is if your referral purchases within 24 hours of clicking on your link, you still get a commission. Here is a bonus that Amazon offers: Even if this person doesn't buy the product you recommended, but does purchase something through your link, you still get paid on the other product!
