Affiliate Marketing for Beginners

So, what do I mean when I say affiliate marketing?

Affiliate Marketing in a nutshell is where you advertise somebody else’s product or service and when they make a purchase you take a cut of it.

Lets look at Amazon for example: I post a link here to the latest Samsung Smart TV I want to advertise, you click the link, buy it and then amazon will track the unique link which lets them know I sent you and BOOM! I get lets say…2% of the sale value!

Easy peasy right?

I know, I know…You want to get started already don’t you? Then lets go!

To get started head over to Amazon Affiliates (no I don’t get anything for this) and sign up! After that the process is pretty much step-by-step but if you do get any questions at all, just post them in the comments below and I promise to get back to each and everyone of you!

Once you have an account setup you and you have a product in mind to ‘advertise’ then whilst logged into our Amazon affiliate dashboard click Product Linking > Product Links and search for the product, now you can pick from a choice of display options, either a text link, banner or others. Once selected, under that you see the code, copy and paste this into your sites page / post and voila! You’ve done it!

You are now ready to earn, so get out there and get it done!

Also, just remember affiliate marketing expands MUCH further than just Amazon, but for now we shall leave it there. If you enjoyed the post, want more or have any questions just leave a comment below.

Bye for now!
