There are some people that would have to work 8-10 hours a day, 5 times a week to earn thousands of dollars for their monthly income. That is a lot of work! But, there are some ventures that will allow you to earn the same amount of money (or even more) and you’re just going to be in the comfort of your own home.

One such venture is affiliate marketing and it is definitely something that you should consider if you are a blogger, influencer, or a content creator in general.

What is Affiliate Marketing?

To put it simply, affiliate marketing is where you help companies sell their products through the content that you create. Let’s take bloggers as an example. They create blog posts that either talks about a specific product that their partner merchants sell or something that is completely different but still somewhat related to the type of product they are selling.

One of the best ways for bloggers to do this would be to create product reviews where they will presell the product by putting in some of its highlights and then tell them why this product could benefit them.

Now, you are probably asking how bloggers can earn thousands of dollars. Depending on your level of experience and the number of partner companies you have, you can potentially earn thousands of dollars per month. That’s right, PER month.

Of course, that level of success will require you to do a lot of things first, but I am just telling you that it is indeed possible for you to achieve such.

Anyway, you will be given a percent commission out of every sale, since most companies nowadays are using the pay-per-sale or cost-per-action model.

Basically, you will be given a special URL known as an affiliate link and whenever your readers click on it, it will direct them to the product page of your partner company.

Should they decide to buy whatever is on there, you will receive a commission based on the price of the sale that is computed from the percentage commission you are promised before you start your relationship with a certain company.

So for instance, if you are promised a 20% commission and the price of the product that was sold is $100, you will get a flat $20 for that.

The beauty of affiliate marketing is that you can get as many affiliate programs and partner merchants as you can, thus allowing you to earn thousands of dollars every month.

Why It’s Great

Aside from the fact that there is a huge earning potential in this venture, affiliate marketing also helps you do what you love the most. I love writing and affiliate marketing has helped me earn a lot of money doing what I love and I do not regret it at all.

As I’ve said in the beginner, whether you are a blogger, a Youtube sensation, or a content creator, you should definitely check out affiliate marketing for yourself.
