Today I'm here to talk about affiliate networks. First let me state that affiliate marketing is taking new heights because businesses are changing from traditional marketing to online marketing.
So first lets answer the most obvious question for total affiliate marketing newbies: What is an affiliate Network?
Definition: An affiliate network acts as an intermediary between publishers (affiliates) and merchant affiliate programs. It allows website publishers to more easily find and participate in affiliate programs which are suitable for their website.
I run into eager online marketers frequently who assume that affiliate marketing is a walk in the park. They think that you just sign up for an affiliate network get a few links throw them up on blogger and bam you make money.This isnt true at all, maybe an affiliate marketing newbie gets lucky every once in a while and hits a keyword in a niche that explodes. Therefore making MAYBE a grand then goes out and makes money off explaining how he made "a fortune online."
So now you know what an affiliate network is-advertising an affiliate link on a website or blog. You dont necessarily need a domain but it is highly recommended.
Now I will explain what I believe is the three different kinds of affiliates: Newbie affiliates, super affiliates, and scammer affiliates. Everyone has a different name for scammer affiliates but they are basically people who make money off selling to newbie affiliates. Dont fall for this nonsense.
Hopefully this knowledge has helped you into the world of online marketing.
