Affiliate marketing is the process of earning a commission by promoting other peoples (or companys) products.
You find a product you like, promote it to others, and earn a piece of the profit for each sale that you make.
The beauty of affiliate marketing is that you don’t have to invest the time and effort to create a product to sell. You can begin selling something as an affiliate as soon as you have a platform to sell it on.
Affiliate marketing is something I have been doing ever since I started my first business online on my LEED Exam website – promoting a third party companys practice exam software along with my own published eBooks and audio guides.
I also do affiliate marketing here on the Smart Passive Income blog, sharing many of the tools and services that I use to run my online businesses, and if you or anyone else purchases through my affiliate links I earn a commission. If you’ve purchased from my links before, thank you so much! I greatly appreciate your support!
