what is affiliate marketing?
affiliate marketing is a way for you to make money by recommending products. You (the affiliate) link to our products. Then we (the merchant) pay you a commission on every sale that you refer.
all of the tracking, reporting, and payments are handled by a third-party company called an affiliate network. shareasale is our affiliate network.
shareasale's take on affiliate marketing?
affiliate marketing is a great way to make money from your website or blog.
most websites make money through advertising. these banner ads aren't worth much because internet users have developed "banner blindness." they don't even see your ads, much less click on them. to make more money, website owners crowd out their content with more and more ads, which turns off their visitors.
the good news is that you can make money without annoying your loyal readers. in fact, you can make money by helping them.
your readers already trust you. when they need to buy a merino garment, they don't want to spend their time and money testing every one. they want you, the expert, to guide them.
by recommending your favorite products, you're helping your readers. the only difference with affiliate marketing is that you use a unique tracking URL when linking to your favorite stuff. then we know which sales you referred to us and can pay you a commission for each one.
affiliate marketing doesn't have to be spammy. it's simply a way to make money from the expertise that you're already sharing. everyone wins. you make money for recommending your favorite products, your readers find the quality products they're looking for, and we make more sales.
