My blog Affiliate Intent is designed to be a step by step guide to Affiliate Marketing, encompassing many of the tips and helping you avoid some of the pitfalls I have encountered in my own Affiliate Marketing journey.
SO WHAT IS AFFILIATE MARKETING?
No guide to Affiliate Marketing would be complete without a simple explanation of what Affiliate Marketing is. I would describe it simply as advocating someone else’s product, directing customer traffic towards that product, and receiving a commission when a customer buys the product that you have referred.
I’m particularly bullish on Affiliate Marketing as a form of passive income. Affiliate Marketing has a big advantage over some of its counterparts in the online business game in that it once you do the initial work of content creation, funnel building or any other method of Affiliate Marketing, you can receive commissions ongoing from your hard work with no or little extra effort. No dealing with customers, suppliers or complaints – just affiliate cheques rolling in.
Ok, so it’s not quite that simple. There’s plenty of competition out there – especially for web traffic, whether you choose to use an organic or ‘free’ method such as SEO, or the paid route such as google adwords or facebook ads.
Welcome to my blog, I’ve categorised my content into my two main categories – Affiliate Marketing Strategy and Affiliate Marketing Tools.
