What Is Affiliate Marketing
Affiliate Marketing is one of the best ways you can make money online, if you know how to use it of course.
Basically it is a deal made between an online merchant and a website owner. The site/blog owner places advertisements on their his/her own website/blog in order to help the merchant sell his product, and in return, he gets commission on every sale.
Pay Per Click
Whenever a visitor visits the merchant's website through a link that he clicked on the affiliates website, a certain amount of money gets deposited into the affiliates account, different products rewards different amounts.
The affiliate can get paid instantly or on a scheduled time during the month.
Pay Per Sale
Pay per sale advertising lets the website owner earn commission every time they make a sale, the amount they make could be based on the amount of sales they made or might earn a flat rate that was agreed upon with the merchant.
Pay Per Lead
This is the easiest form of Affiliate Marketing, basically what this means is that every time a visitor registers at the merchants website due to clicking on a link that was located on an affiliate's website, the affiliate earns a certain amount of money that gets deposited into his account.
In this method you don't even need to sell anything, just have them register through your link.
