ffiliate marketing is different things to different people, but essentially, affiliate
marketing is the act of marketing someone else’s products or services for a
portion, or commission, of each sale that you make.
Some people do affiliate marketing as their full time jobs. That’s it. That’s all they
do – they market other people’s products or services, collect their commissions,
and live their lives as they wish. They do not have to deal with customer service,
shipping orders, or anything else. All they do is promote other people’s products
or services, everyday.
Other people use affiliate programs in conjunction with their own products or
services, using affiliate programs as front end products, upsells, and back end
products. For example, if you had an information product about weight loss, you
might want to market exercise equipment, exercise clothing, vitamins, or other
items or services that are related to weight loss along with your weight loss
information product – to increase your revenue.
