Affiliate Marketing is the process of promoting the products of others on your blog and getting the commission from the advertisers when the purchase is made through your affiliate link. When the readers clicked on the affiliate link of the products and made a purchase, then you will be rewarded by the advertisers.

Now another question might be raised in your mind that how much money we can earn through Affiliate Marketing? The sky is the limit for making through Affiliate marketing. A typical process for joining any Affiliate programs

  • Sign up for any Affiliate programs
  • Fill up tax form(if required)
  • Your application gets reviewed by respective affiliate team
  • You will get mail for approval/rejection of the application
  • Once approved, promote the products.

Once your affiliate application gets approved, you will get unique affiliate links which help the affiliate team to track your earning. When you promote any product, the affiliate ID is embedded into the link, which makes easy to track clicks and purchases.
