Now, some the information you’ll be getting in this post are what a lot of persons pay huge amount to buy either in form of eBooks, audio courses or video courses.

How does Affiliate marketing work?
In affiliate marketing, you don’t necessarily need to create any program (your own product), all you need do is sign up to be an affiliate for a brand or company, and you get commissions for every sale made. In some cases, you get as much as 50% commission on sale.
What do I need to get started?
Becoming an affiliate is almost the same as starting up any online business. The tools or resources to start up are not so much. In fact, they are things you probably have already or in some cases, some. They are:
- A computer system/ Smartphone
- Internet connection
- A blog, Facebook page or Facebook group.
With this tools mentioned above, I’d say you are almost ready to begin your journey as an affiliate marketer.
Things To Note About Affiliate Marketing.
You don’t necessarily need a blog to go into affiliate marketing(though it’s an added advantage). The fact is, you just need to promote the link given to you. This can be through your Facebook account, Facebook groups or other platforms or forum. The aim is to get people to click on the link and buy the product(s).
But I’ll advice you take caution when promoting your link, especially on social media groups or any other media.
That’s why sometimes it’s advisable you own a blog. Your blog can just be a one-page blog where visitors can come in and get a glance at what you offer.
You don’t need so much to set-up a blog. It could be a free WordPress blog.
One other thing I advise a lot of people while doing this is to BUILD A LIST. Email Marketing is exactly where the money is currently. Building a list has to do with having a wide range of target audience you sell to or relate with.
With a wide range of email subscribers, you can earn massively from just one promotion. For example you have 1000 subscribers and you promote a $100 product with 10% commission on sale with over 10 people buying from you. That’s a whooping $100 for you from just one product.
