What is Affiliate Marketing

what is affiliate marketing

Affiliate marketing is the process of earning a commission by promoting other people’s (or company’s) products.

You find a product you like, promote it to others, and earn a piece of the profit for each sale that you make.

  • You’re happy because you earned a commission…
  • The company is happy because they have a new sale from a customer that may not have had if it weren’t for you
  • And the customer is happy because they learned about a product from you that will hopefully fulfill a need or desire.

I love affiliate marketing because it’s hassle-free, passive income at it’s best. You don’t need to own your own product, website, email list, or anything else. You simply point a person to your affiliate link, and the product owner’s website does the rest. Honestly there is no simpler way to make money online than with affiliate marketing.

I also do affiliate marketing here on the Lazy Affiliate Ninja blog, along with sharing all my knowledge, trial and error, and successes, so you can profit from my experience. When I first started I didn’t have anywhere to learn from, so I hope to give future affiliate marketer’s a place to help them on this fantastic journey.
