There are many benefits of being an affiliate, however the main benefit is quickly maximising your earning potential from the visitors to your website with little (almost no cost) and effort.
But wait, before this let me first explain what Affiliate Marketing means:
Simply it is a type of in which a business rewards one or more for each visitor or customer brought by the affiliate’s own marketing efforts.
The industry has four players:
The merchant (also known as ‘retailer’ or ‘brand’).
The affiliate network (that contains offers for the affiliate to choose from and also takes care of the payments).
The publisher also known as ‘the affiliate (which is you!)
And the customer.
Joining an affiliate program is free and can be done quickly and easily through a quick online registration process.
All you need to become an affiliate is a website and some space on your site to publish banner or text adverts.
Placing affiliate banner adverts on your website requires only very basic HTML knowledge and is quick to do, so affiliates benefit from almost instantly realising additional revenue from visitors to their website.
Being an affiliate doesn’t require any expertise or specialist product knowledge for the products and services you choose to advertise.
Any way these are some of the benefits of affiliate marketing:
1- Cost effective: Marketing on the internet is cheap and you don’t have to worry about the production cost as the product is already developed by the seller. You don’t need a physical business location or hire employees either.
2- Global Market: Online marketing gives you the opportunity to reach people all over the world easily.
3- No Fees: You don’t need to pay anything to join affiliate programs.
4- No Storage No Shipping: You don’t need to worry about storage, packing or shipment of the product. They are all taken care of by the seller.
5- No customer support: You don’t need to provide any customer support or deal with consumer complaints as the Seller does that for you.
6- Passive income: A regular job can give you a fixed income as long as you continue to work. Depending on your marketing skill Affiliate marketing can create a steady flow of income even when you are not in front of your computer.
7- Work from home: If you make enough money then you don’t have to worry about going to work at the same time every day or getting stuck in traffic. You can work in the comfort of your own home.
The question here (which i think is the most important one) is :
