What Is Affiliate Marketing?

Affiliatemarketing is all about selling another person’s products and earn a commission in return.

In online business, affiliate marketing is a good way of making money. You don’t need to have your own product before you make money online. Affiliate marketing is the most source of income for most bloggers.

Some people have been hearing about affiliate marketing, but they don’t actually know what it means. Yes because, if you are not told, you will never know 

what it means.

 This reminds me of my past, when I was still a novice in anything about online business, I always come across the term “ affiliate marketing “ when ever I am browsing the internet, but I never understood it.

You know one thing about me is that I like visiting websites to learn more about online business.

Affiliate marketing is good for you if you have a blog to advertise your affiliate link.

Let me give you a good example of what affiliate marketing means.

See this example below

Mr A has his products to sell

Mr. B applied to sell mr. A’s products.

Mr. C bought  Mr A’s product  from Mr. B

Mr. A will pay commission to Mr. B for the sale he made.

Now, with the example, I gave you above, I believe that you now know what affiliate marketing is all about.

Here, I will discuss with you the advantages and the disadvantages of affiliate marketing. Although, the disadvantage of affiliate marketing is not much when compared to the advantages of affiliate marketing.
