How To Be An Affiliate In Internet Marketing

Selling – Promoting Online – If you’ve browsed through the other pages of this site I’m sure you will have a few thoughts if not an actual idea what you want to do next. Am I right in thinking you would like to try your hand at Internet Marketing?

One of the most popular methods of Internet Marketing is through affiliate marketing. This is a great opportunity that allows you to promote other people’s merchandise for a commission

There’s a lot to learn ‘How To Become An Affiliate’ though. But help is at hand because there is a way through Wealthy Affiliate. This is a system that will take you by the hand and walk you through every stage of marketing online. You will also be given 2 free websites, and hosted for you free as well to get you started.

You can either have a product, service or idea of what you would like to do, but as stated above the other opportunity to become an affiliate is to promote other peoples merchandise for a commission. You can do this, and more with Wealthy Affiliate as well.

To become an affiliate all you need to do is register for an affiliate program or use larger affiliate networks such as Clickbank, PayDotCom, ClickSure or Click2Sell to get your personal tracking links for individual products that you decide you want to promote on your 2 free websites.


#Promoting A Product As An Affiliate

During the process of promoting a product or service you send customers to the vendor’s site using the tracking links, and their presence is monitored. If they complete a sale, you earn a commission. Different vendors have different rates, which can be up to and sometimes over 75%.

However when you’re looking for products to promote don’t just focus on how much money you could make. Seek out quality products that your visitors can actually benefit from. Something you yourself might buy or use. If you’re promoting poor quality goods or service then refunds will eat away at your profits and you could earn a reputation for promoting a low quality service or items.

As mentioned above you need to be registered with affiliate networks which are large sites that bring together vendors and affiliates. They provide useful statistics on how well offers are doing and streamline the whole process of promoting products online.

The other benefit to some of the large networks is that they take care of the payment and refund processing so that the process is pretty well hands-off for you.

ClickBank.com is quite popular and usually the first place that most affiliates get their start. It’s easy to use and has a lot of products to choose from.

In principle you should always try out a product before you choose to promote it, or at least visit the vendor’s site to see what you are actually expected to promote. You would be amazed at how many first-time affiliates don’t do this and usually end up promoting a poor product, which of course results in poor sales or none at all.

You could also buy the product and return it or simply contact the owner and request a promotional copy which in most cases they’re more than happy to do.


Promoting A Product From The Clickbank Marketplace

When you’re searching the ClickBank marketplace for products to promote, you will usually see a list of statistics to the right side and below each item.

A quick way to determine if something is a worthwhile product is to look at the Gravity. If the product has a high Gravity number it means that a lot of affiliates are promoting that product. The logic being that if this product wasn’t any good and wasn’t making any money for these people, then why would so many of them promote it?

You should still visit the vendors’ website to have a look at the product itself before promoting anything.

 

When you click the button to promote, you will be taken to a small screen where you should see your unique account name or nick-name already entered for you. Just click on ‘Create’ to get your unique URL.

 

The URL that’s generated for you will be your tracking link which you will use to promote that product.

 

If you have decided that you want to promote a specific product and can’t find what you’re looking for at any of the affiliate networks you know about, simply do a Google search for the type of product you’re looking for and the words “affiliate program” – you should get a quite a long list of results to go through.

Below are some affiliate networks you might like to look at although there are 100’s more:

#Creating A Money Making Website

If you are going to promote a product on your Wealthy Affiliates free websites it’s important to make sure that everything on your sites is in order when you’re signing up for these networks.

These companies like to protect their networks’ integrity as best they can. In most cases someone will manually review your website before they accept you into their affiliate network.

Make sure you don’t have broken or unfinished pages and that your site is ready to be used for promotions. Check it, check it and check it again.

There are many types of offers available on the affiliate networks, and it’s a good idea to familiarize yourself with the main terms used for affiliate payouts.  These are CPS, CPA, PPV and PPC

CPS simply stands for Cost Per Sale which means you only get paid when a customer completes a sale.

CPA stands for Cost Per Action which means that you can get paid just for having a customer input some of their data, such as an email address or a phone number.

PPV stands for Pay Per View and you get paid when a potential customer ‘Views’ what’s on offer.

PPC stands for Pay Per Click and means you get paid every time a potential customer clicks on an offer.

The process for setting these up is the same as a standard affiliate offer. The only difference is that your affiliate link will take your visitors to different types of sign up pages.

You can play around with these different types of offers to see what works best for your site and your type of traffic (people who visit your site).

Again don’t promote anything that you wouldn’t use yourself, as some offers may seem incredibly attractive but will ultimately leave your visitors with a poor shopping experience, and a poor impression of your website.

 

A word of warning though. There are quite a few unscrupulous vendors out there who have managed to slip through the review process of the networks and they will not pay you, so be very careful and check them out before you do any promoting. It’s a simple matter to contact them once you’re registered. If they wont reply then of course you shouldn’t risk promoting their product.

If you think you could be a successful affiliate or you just want to see if you have what it takes then sign up to the Wealthy Affiliate ‘Starter Membership’. You can always upgrade later and have access to 25 websites and a whole lot more of their incredible information, training videos and classrooms.

  1. Hello Raul
    Yes I do because I get lot of Spam comments but as they go straight to my Spam Folder within my WordPress it is not a problem.
    My CAPTCHA catches about 90% of them.
    My advice to you is activate your CAPTCHA and then update it right away.
    You could also use Akismet. Its easy to do and free.
    Also as a member of Wealthy Affiliate you would have full protection from hackers because I can guarantee you it is 100% secure and nobody can get in unless they are a member.

  13. Hi Beth Monnier
    On the topic of affiliate/internet marketing and websites.
    No it did not cost me a lot of money to setup my website or take more than the normal amount of work to write articles/blogs to put on it.
    My site is hosted by Wealthy Affiliate’s Cloud Hosting Service.
    This is done for me free as well as the websites. Everything is free when you signup to wealthy affiliate as a Starter Member.
    Wealthy Affiliate also has its own platform called ‘Rubix’.
    I get to create website for free on this as well using WA’s own WordPress system the owners created just for wealthy affiliate members.
    You should at least signup for a 7 day free trial and see for yourself.
    I think you would stay because there is not another program like it on the internet today.

  17. Hi! I know this is kind of off-topic however I needed to ask.
    Does building a well-established blog such as yours require a massive
    amount work? I’m brand new to blogging however I do write in my diary on a daily basis.

    I’d like to start a blog so I will be able to share my own experience
    and feelings online. Please let me know if you have any kind of recommendations or tips for
    brand new aspiring bloggers. Thankyou!

  18. Hi Dominick
    Yes I have a Twitter account. I’m sure if you did a search for roblon7349 you would find me without any problem.
    I visited your website and it is very good.
    However I think you could do better signing up to wealthy affiliate.
    You would get two free websites and they would be hosted for you free as well.
    What do you think. A good deal or what?
    Thank you for your comment and for visiting my website.
    Have a nice day.

  19. Hi Chara Heyward and thank you for your comment.
    No this is not a paid theme.
    I have access to a version of wordpress that the owners of wealthy affiliate create soley for the WA membership.
    I actually have access to hundreds of great themes and if you where to signup to WA you would have this access as well for the 2 free websites you would receive.
    If you upgraded to the premium membership you would receive 25 free websites and have them hosted for you free as well.
    A great deal don’t you think and certainly worth thinking about.
    I visited your site and it is very good but I think you could do better with wealthy affiliate.
    Thank you for your comment and you have an excellent day.

  20. Hello Rodrigo
    Yes I do because I get lot of Spam comments but as they go straight to my Spam Folder within my WordPress it is not a problem.
    My CAPTCHA catches most of them anyway and the rest I just delete because most of them are from porn websites.
    My advice to you is activate your CAPTCHA and then update it right away.
    You could also use Akismet. Its easy to do and free.
    Also as a member of Wealthy Affiliate you would have full protection from hackers because I can guarantee you it is 100% secure and nobody can get in unless they are a member.

    Being a member of wealthy affiliate I have access to 100’s of fantastic themes.
    If you signup you will have this access as well and your websites are hosted for you free as well the fact you are given 2 websites for nothing.
    A great deal.
    Have a nice day.
    Regards

  23. Hello
    I visited your ‘Watches’ website and its a very good site but I don’t believe you are achieving its full potential with your hosting.
    It would pay you big dividends if you had it hosted for free with wealthy affiliate.
    This makes a great deal of sense to me because then you could use the money you save on other aspects of your website’s promotion.
    Have a think about it.
    Meantime you have an excellent day.
