Affiliate marketing is almost easy money.
Why is it Easy Money?
Generally, if done right, you can earn a LOT of money.
Why the ALMOST?
There is a little bit of work and a few requirements to earning this money…
Surfing the internet, you will generally see 2 types of advertising. Pay-per-click (PPC) advertising and Cost-per-action (CPA) advertising.
PPC is what Google Adsense does currently, which is display ads, and pay you, the website owner, a certain amount of money every time somebody clicks an ad. This really makes it the easiest of ways to advertise, as it is just a case of you putting up a website with useful and helpful content, and placing Google’s ads on your site.
CPA is different in that you ONLY get paid when a user clicks your ad, and fulfils a requirement on the site that they go to, such as completing a purchase.
But, a BIG difference between the 2: CPA commision tends to be a percentage of a purchase, so if your site visitor clicks a CPA ad and goes and buys something on the other site for $200, you might get $20 just for sending them there. Now, imagine sending 1000 visitors to buy something every month!
I am a member at “OfferForge“, a South African affiliate company, and through this I can sign up to a few local affiliate programs. In the next couple of articles, I’m going to try and show you how easy it should be to be an affiliate marketer in South Africa (and, the rest of the world).
