What is an affiliate program?
Affiliate marketing is a performance-based marketing strategy in which a business rewards website publishers or “affiliates” for every visitor or customer that is a result of their marketing efforts.
Incorporating an affiliate program into your websites marketing strategy is an effective way to increase sales without a major investment. Almost all fortune 500 companies have an affiliate program with some having over 60% of their sales resulting from their affiliate program.
Amazon receives almost 80 million visitors in 1 month which is enough people to fill 60 Disneyland’s. It was also reported that almost 40% of their traffic is a result of their Amazon Associates Program which provides their affiliates with a minimum payout of only 6%.
An affiliate program can be beneficial to almost any website if executed correctly. Not only will it increase traffic and sales to your website but can also provide the added benefit of SEO from backlinks generated from affiliate marketers.
How Does Affiliate Marketing Work?
Website publishers or webmasters signup to your affiliate program. Once logged into their dashboard they will have access to all creative/banners and/or unique tracking links that they can place on their own web sites. When a customer is generated as a result of their marketing efforts, they will earn a commission set by the advertiser.
