Thank you for stopping by to read my article on what is affiliate marketing programs about and especially what is affiliate programs for beginners!
Simply put, affiliate programs, also called associate programs, are arrangements in which an online merchant website pays affiliate websites a commission for sending traffic to them.
These affiliate websites display links to the merchant site and are paid for by a special agreement.
WHAT IS AN AFFILIATE?
A way for a company to sell its products by signing individuals or companies “affiliates” who market the company’s products for a commission.
There are two ways to approach affiliate marketing:
a)you can offer an affiliate program to others
b) you can sign up as an affiliate of another company.
HOW MUCH CAN YOU EARN AS AN AFFILIATE?
Affiliate marketing means selling the goods and services of another person or business.
Nine percent of the publishers surveyed generated more than $ 50,000 in affiliate revenue in 2016.
Affiliate marketing is supposed to generate passive income.
ARE AFFILIATE PROGRAMS LEGITIMATE?
Affiliate marketing has a relatively good reputation in general, but it sometimes gets a hit because there have been real scams.
There are many people who do not know what they are talking about trying to make quick money by selling training.
The reputation of affiliate marketing, to some extent, has been shattered by the prevalence of scams getting rich quickly.
This is also why you generally want to try to acquire the basic skills of a known and successful affiliate marketer.
WHAT ARE THE MOST POPULAR AFFILIATE NETWORKS?
- Ads 4 Dough
- Commission Junction
- Amazon Affiliate Program
- eBay Partners Program.
INTRODUCING THE WEALTHY AFFILIATE “AFFILIATE PROGRAMS PLATFORM”
We are delighted to announce the Affiliate Programs platform here within Wealthy Affiliate.
You will see a brand new menu item within the side menu labeled “Affiliate Programs”.
This is where you are going to access the brand new platform and where you will be able to search, find, and manage your affiliate programs moving forward.
This has been an original idea for our company for many years.
We have never seen an affiliate search tool that was useful, or that actually had decent quality affiliate programs within them.
Our goal with this platform will be to reward high quality and actively managed programs and to limit exposure to programs of lower quality or that do not have active support.
Finding and managing the affiliate programs you are part of has never been easier, as this platform evolves.
I think you will be really excited to see what new opportunities this will represent for you as an affiliate marketer.
The search aspect has been one of our main objectives because we want to help users find affiliate programs effectively.
We also want to be able to do so based on filters and keywords that meet their search criteria.
You will be able to search for programs based on a number of different filters.
Country availability (is it available to you as an affiliate in your country)
Payment options automatic approval (of commissions)
You can manage them by clicking on the Filter tab, as shown below.
As for your actual research, you can research what you like. If you want to research affiliate programs related to “golf”, you can most certainly.
If you want, you can also organize and search by category only.
If you click on “All” with the down arrow to the left of the search bar, you will be able to filter and display only the programs of certain categories.
These are categories that evolve over time as there will be more affiliate programs added.
There are currently almost 10,000 affiliate programs included in the research.
TRACK AND MANAGE YOUR PROGRAMS
You are going to be able to manage all of your affiliate programs from within the platform and categorize how you see fit.
To follow a program, simply click on the Follow button or on the STAR icon in the upper right corner of any list.
By clicking, you will have the possibility to organize the program in a “No category” group, to choose an existing category for the group, or to create a completely new category.
By doing this, you will be able to access all the affiliate programs in your store by clicking on the STAR icon in the search bar (as shown below).
As you navigate, you are likely to find potential niches or promotional ideas for future campaigns.
We recommend that you follow all the programs with which you are affiliated and which interests you.
Affiliates have the ability to communicate directly with merchants.
As with all WA platforms, the community and interaction components have been a big part of the thinking when mapping the affiliate program environment.
You will be able to discuss specific affiliate programs and offer help to others if you know the answers to the questions.
You can ask a question, offer help with a question of a particular affiliate program. Under the review component, you will see a discussion thread.
And if you want to leave feedback on an affiliate program, you can also do so.
This will help other affiliate marketers to determine the quality of the program.
Affiliate program managers will see the overall comments.
If it is good, they know they are doing something right if there are negative comments like with any platform they can work to improve their programs.
MERCHANTS NOW HAVE A PLAYGROUND
Look for many future updates that will connect affiliates and merchants.
Once we have refined the initial framework, we will interactively advance this platform as a “home” for affiliate program managers to work directly with their affiliates.
All successful affiliate programs understand that affiliates are the bread and butter of their online business.
Our goal will be to provide you with the best access directly to these merchants here in WA.
Also, for marketers, it is very tricky to form a successful affiliate marketing team.
We are delighted with future updates to this platform.
