What is Affiliate Marketing

The basic idea behind affiliate programs is that when you become an affiliate (also called a referrer, reseller or associate), a partnership is created with the merchant – the owner of a product or provider of a service. Once you as an affiliate refer a customer to the merchant and the customer makes a purchase, you get a percentage of the sale (a commission).

How Do I get Started With Affiliate Marketing

The beginning of the process is education and there are several

Step #1: Educate yourself. This is the key, opening the door of opportunity. It's also the common thread connecting successful affiliate marketers. Education lays the foundation - the building blocks to success. Start by gathering the best information you can find about affiliate marketing and absorbing it.

Step #2: Turn that information into usable knowledge. Even the best information remains kind of worthless, however, until after you discover how to use it - how to make it serve your purpose.

Step #3: Start applying the knowledge ... take action ...start building your affiliate business. Will you make mistakes, even though you have invested all that time educating yourself? Yes, you most likely will make mistakes.

Step #4: Test and tweak, test and tweak. This one never ends. And it's often the dividing line between succeeding and failing. Attention to small details often returns big rewards.
