If you are a beginner and you are on the part of figuring out how to make your blog a source of an income. One thing that you can do is Affiliate marketing. It is the easiest to get started with.
In simpler terms, affiliate marketing is a process in which you promote products and in exchange, you get a commission and also this happens when your recommendation leads directly to a sale through tracked affiliate links, which looks like this: – http:/xyzproduct.com/?affid=4356. It’s a typical standard link, but it has the affid=4356 part which allows your recommendation to be tracked and it is at the end tied to the particular sale.
Commissions usually range from 5% to 75% of the MRP. But the most crucial thing which you need to consider is what kind of products you want to affiliate with and how you will promote them.
The next question that arises is how we find products with affiliate links. If a product is included in an affiliate program, it will be mentioned on the company’s website.
There are some specific rules that you need to follow
Promote only those products which you know are high, and you believe in them
Secondly, promote those products which are going to be beneficial to the audience
Lastly, help those items which you aren’t ashamed of using yourself.
All these steps do sound simple, but can be tricky, especially if you are someone who runs a beauty blog or fashion blog or even a blog on electronic items and gadgets. There are so many companies despite having inferior quality products, but they will lure the audience with the tag line of 100% commission, and a lot of bloggers tend to fall for this trap.
