Hello everyone. This is a page for business people and people that want to learn more about business. I will be talking about Affiliate Marketing for this one so first question. 

What Is Affiliate Marketing? Affiliate marketing is the process by which an affiliate earns a commission for marketing another person’s or company’s products. The affiliate simply searches for a product they enjoy, then promotes that product and earns a piece of the profit from each sale they make. 
The sales are tracked via affiliate links from one website to another. Lets say for en example. You go to a website or a brand and they have a affiliate program. You go there and request to be a affiliate there. What happens next is that you go through a application to see if you are good to go and boom, now you are a affiliate. However this is barely not even the start. What you have to do now share it to people that are interested in buying that product.

Ok so Im gonna break it down step by step now. You see this brand that you think your audience is interested in. could be youtube, facebook or instagram. Y
ou ask for persmission to sell their product and you get a commission for doing that. Could be 5% or even up to 50% some offer 100% if it's really cheap. What happens next is you ask them for their product and they send you an affiliate link. Now this link is very special to you since it is the code that will track the sale back to you. 

Lets say "" this is you very own specific affiliate link that you will share to others. And now you refer this code to others. However you can't simply just say "Hej! come buy this new product." You have to create value, that is the most important part about affiliate marketing. You have to create a "why" or a "reason" to why they have to buy it. Find a problem, create a solution and boom there you have your sale. Now then, after you have made a sale from your customers, the brand or website that you promoted are going to track that sale right back to your account and you just made a sale! If you sold a $100 and you have a commission of 40% then you would get $40. 

Thats a lot for a single sale right? If you sold 100 or those, you would get $4000! You some words you have to know are. 

Recurring commission - this means that you would get paid again and again from your brand. If they have a monthly membership and it says recurring commission then you would get a monthly payment from them.
