How Does Affiliate Marketing Works?

by Tamal Anwar on Tuesday, April 16, 2013

affiliate-marketingSo you must have heard of affiliate marketing and people can make money being an affiliate. But what is it exactly and how it works? In this article I am going to share what affiliate marketing is and how it really works.

To make it really simple, I am going to share a real life example. I have launched BlogKori Academy which is an online coaching platform. My readers can join this course and learn from me through videos. My course is priced at $49-$99.

Now the thing is, in order to have more sales, I need to attract more students. My resources and reach is limited. So what I did was to offer an affiliate program. In this program someone can join as an affiliate (for free) and promote my course. When they make a sale, I will pay a percentage of the profit to that affiliate. This is called an affiliate commission.

I am using software so the sales tracking and commissions are managed automatically. So you see that this way I can reach more people and sell more. On the other hand my affiliate is making money by promoting my stuff.

It’s a win win situation for both of us. So this is how exactly affiliate marketing works. Click to Read the Full Article →

Click on 10 ads and you will make $40. Click on 100 and you just made $400/day. How long will it take for you to make $4,000? Just 10 days. How much you can earn in a month, 12,000 dollars!

So how much is the membership you say?

Yeiks! $99 EVERY MONTH JUST TO BE ABLE TO WITHDRAW THE MONEY? –yes I had to go full caps!

And when do they pay?

payment term for four dollar click

75 days to process your payment and only if you stay with the terms? Good way to rip people off.

Now go again to the purchase page and see how much they charge for advertising on their network,

purchase ads

1000 hits for $10. So that means for every click they charge 1 cent per click. So if they are charging a penny for a click, how they are able to pay you $4 for that click?

media dot net logoIn search of a better ad network I found Media.Net. What so cool about this ad network is that it is run by the internet giants Yahoo and Bing. Yahoo is pumping it up with their publisher network while Bing has included their inventory of ads.

Together Media dot net is going to become the next big sensation in website monetization. Google Adsense is a tough program to get into and they can delete your account for no prior notice. Day by day google is getting picky about who they will accept. In search of a better alternative, all of the other ad providers perform too weak!

A good alternative to google adsense was AdBrite but they are closing down their doors soon. So few days ago I found out about the new Media.Net and I instantly requested an invite.

Media Dot Net is still not open for public and they are not giving access to everyone who knocks their door. To my surprise this new and robust ad platform approved my application and they also assigned a friendly person as my account manager.

overview

I won’t say that it is an alternative to adsense; Media.Net is going to be a far better ad platform than the big G. After signing up I was impressed with their super easy interface and I instantly added the units to my blog. So I just added the units on my blog so nothing much I can say how well it may perform, but I have very high expectations for this. On the other hand this is a huge network so there are plenty of ads to showcase for almost every type of website.

For the payment methods I am happy they offer bank wire and PayPal payments. The minimum payment threshold is still unknown but I think this will be around 50 bucks or so.

If you have a blog or website, and want to monetize it, you can feel free to check them out and apply.

Niche site buildingNiche is a market you want to get into. When I started a blog, I had many options to choose and even blogging niche is so broad I could write on many different topics. But when building a mini site I am bound to just one topic because at most I will be writing 20 pages for this website.

A popular belief is to go for the niches that are popular or what we assume sell well. If I just name niche building and affiliate marketing, then the first thing that comes in my mind is the health market or even the weight loss market. Yet so many people dive into the pool and as a result there is so much competition. But in reality, most people I assume don’t know why they are here. That’s why 97% people fail in internet marketing. So that means only 3% of the websites/marketers out there in the weight lose industry that makes the most money.

My Niche Selection Disaster

When I first started niche site building, I went for a random market that I had no idea about. The market was pinball machines. These machines are huge and sell at $4000 price tag and only a few companies online sell them and have affiliate option. Such things are collectible items and about 30 years old. These pieces are grand fathers of arcade games. So I was hoping for a $200 commission per sale. As I had no idea about the product I went out and purchased a few quality reviews. I also spent money for building links. As months passed by I didn’t saw any sale. When I added a few pinball books and mini toys on the site that range $15-40, these sold a couple of times.

So the lesson is learned, offer a product that has a good entry level pricing people can afford. Click to Read the Full Article →
