Understanding Affiliate Marketing

What is affiliate marketing

Affiliate Marketing is a creative way to make money. This can be done from the comfort of your home or while you travel. You make money from promoting other people’s products and services. If the customer buys the product you can get a commission. Many times this is an ad on a website or in a video. The better your content the more people will view it and keep coming back for more. This will help you get more revenue from ads. As well as be able to promote higher ticket items. 

Affiliate marketing can be passive income. Because you are working for yourself you have the freedom to work when you want. But it can be hard for those that aren’t good at sticking to things. You have to be good at consistently putting out content. The rewards can be great if you are willing to put in the work.

What is passive income

There are two types of income, passive income, and active income. Active income is any income that you make by actually working. It includes wages, self-employment, and the type of income you make by managing a company, but not the type you make by investing. Passive income is a type of income that you can make without having to work. It is usually generated by an asset, such as a house or a stock, which generates money even when you’re not using it.

Affiliate Marketing can be passive income because after you work on a project you can keep making money from it.  Unlike a job where you are paid for each hour you work and nothing after. Say you write a great blog post, or make an amazing video. You can keep on making money from those projects months even years after the fact. 

Making money as you live life and even while you sleep. Allowing you more time and freedom. You can pretty much do it from anywhere as long as you have internet. But you will have to keep your content alive. If you are lazy and do nothing to it after a while people will lose interest.

Affiliate marketing works with all walks of life

Affiliate marketing is something everyone can do. All you need is an internet connection, a place for your content, and some ambition. With so many products to promote you will have no problem finding one to promote. Plus it can be fun and creative. 

Some of the choices for affiliates are Google Adsense, Amazon Associates, ShareASale, or ClickBank. But there are many more. A lot of websites will have their affiliate section located at the bottom of the website. So it’s worth taking a look if you are using a product you like and would like to promote it for a little commission. 

Full time/ part time you decide

Nothing will be handed to you in life. Well, not for most of that at least. This does take time and work. But you can work on it in your spare time. It is cheap to set up and easy to do.

If you work at it over time you could make some extra money
on the side or even more. It really depends on what you are
willing to do and how much time and consistent effort you put
in. Results vary, not everyone that tries it makes money.
