#2.) Affiliate marketing
Affiliate marketing is a marketing practice in which a business rewards one or more affiliates for each visitor or customer brought about by the affiliate’s own marketing efforts.
The industry has four core players: the merchant (also known as ‘retailer’ or ‘brand’), the network, the publisher (also known as ‘the affiliate’), and the customer. The market has grown in complexity to warrant a secondary tier of players, including affiliate management agencies, super-affiliates and specialized third parties vendors.
Without doubt, affiliate marketing is an easy way to make money online just by selling affiliate products. You don’t have to own, use or even like any of these products! Your own target is to get them sold or get people to sign up for them and before you know it, you are already making cool money! Below are three general types of affiliate programs:
1. Electronic items like eBooks, which can be found on ClickBank.com
2. Physical goods which can be found on Amazon.com and cj.com
3. Pay per action programs which can be found on Neverblue.com and Azoogle.com
