Most of us have probably heard this term mentioned in passing but don’t know what it means. Affiliate marketing is when a company pays a third party (you) to advertise its products/services and generate leads on their behalf. The third-party doing the advertising is known as an affiliate. Affiliate marketing has become increasingly popular due to the rise of influencer culture on the internet. However, that is not to say that it is a new practice. On the contrary, it has been around for a long time.
This is an advertising model in which someone with no relation to the company or its products markets it on their behalf. It is the most uninvolved form of affiliate marketing since the affiliate has no connection to the company. In addition, this kind of affiliate marketing is very low risk for the affiliate because the companies do not task the affiliates to offer any advice or recommendations related to the product.
Affiliates with some relationship with the company carry out this kind of marketing. Usually, they are operating within the same niche as the company. For example, a blogger that writes about cars may become an affiliate for a company that sells car air fresheners. The blogger posts affiliate links on their blog that helps generate leads for the air freshener company. In return, the blogger might get a commission for each sale that their link generates.
This kind of marketing establishes a deeper connection between the product and affiliate. The affiliate might be a regular user of the product and believes that marketing it to their audience will positively impact their lives. This is the sort of marketing “influencers” tend to do. Influencers are people with a large social media following. The affiliate assumes more risk than usual. If there are any problems related to the products they’re advertising, the affiliates or influencers can sully their reputation. It is the most lucrative form of marketing.
