A Few Terms To Understand…
Since affiliate marketing, is one of the number one ways to earn online. If you happen to be a beginner. I want to make sure you understand just what it is in a nutshell.
Affiliate- Is the person who makes money, from marketing or showing other people products and services. That is, to a “hungry” market in need of what’s shown. So, as in affiliate, the act of showing the products/services, is called Marketing. If you were to combine the two terms together, you’d have Affiliate Marketing.
If, you get started as an affiliate, you will become familiar with hearing the terms combined. An Affiliate Website is a site(s) created to specifically market a particular product or service. These sites may be referred to as Affiliate Website(s).
The Value: Affiliate Website(s)
In case, you didn’t know… There are many companies that will allow affiliates to make money without a specific website, used to promote products and services. So it is possible to get up and going as an affiliate without a website. As an affiliate, whether or not, you have a website presence, usually depends on how serious you are about succeeding.
Okay, since you now know, what an affiliate is and what you’ll be doing as one; The next important thing for you to know, is why it’s so valuable for an affiliate to have a website presence. To simplify things, I’ll just share this list of why an affiliate website is valuable… Pretty much the way to go. So here are the reasons:
- An affiliate website will help an affiliate to leverage time, energy and effort (in other words it will help you to work smarter instead of harder)… It will serve as a tool that automates most of your work once its set up.
- It serves as a place (or hub) to keep all your content. It gives you accessibility, to direct others to your platform, regardless. Many social sites have several restrictions when it comes to promotions. You must follow their guidelines or get banned. With you own site, you don’t have that to worry about. You are the administrative person.
- You will have complete control over how you promote or monetize your products/services.
- It gives you accessibility, to brand yourself, by simply sharing value and become a great influencer to others in your niche.
- It gives you accessibility, to optimize your site, and have people searching for you: Instead of you searching for people who are “hungry” for what you have to offer. This move can help put your work and efforts on auto-pilot.
- An affiliate website is mandatory for some but not all really great companies to partner with.
- It signifies your seriousness of being an affiliate marketer. A website helps your niche audience to view you as a professional in your trade. It gives you “voice” and authority, also credentials.
So hopefully the above list, will help you to realize the value of having an affiliate website. In this industry, having an affiliate website will serve as an effective success tool.
