One of the best ways to earn your income is selling. The difficulty in actual selling can be due to the fact to going to different place along with the products to be sold and giving it directly to the customers. Some people feel ashamed to be turned down by the customers and don't prefer to sell by themselves. Of late selling can be done through affiliate marketing apart from direct product selling.
Basically the term affiliate marketing on the net means selling services or products on the basis of commission. But here it is the on line service rather than physical direct service that most people have fear of. Owning a site of your own makes it easier to begin an affiliate marketing business. Having basic knowledge about affiliate programs and the methods used to carry them out is necessary to earn a huge income without losing the opportunity to consider the advantages of affiliate programs.
Vital points to note prior to joining an affiliate program
1. There are various types of affiliate programs that include pay per click, bounty, pay per lead, pay per sale and two tier. On purchase of an item by the customer, the commission of the product is paid to you by 'pay per sale'. The visiting of the customer to the site itself fetches you a pay by 'pay per click'. It doesn't require the customer to make a purchase. But if the customer purchases, you tend to earn more money. With the PPC type of marketing, the pay of the companies range from $.05 to $.15.
The payment for each customer is a one-time pay that ranges from $2 to $5. There is a possibility of higher benefits upon signing up of application by the customer.
If you fetch a customer and refer him, you will get your referral fee. If in case the referral makes a purchase, you lack the rights to receive any commission and this is called a bounty.
Getting commissions from both direct sales and sub-affiliates sales generation is called two tiered.
The basic benefits of an affiliate program is inclusive of avoiding deals with people such as employees, warranties, technical support, customer service, brokers, process orders and many more features and take measures to bring prospects to visit your website.
