1. what is affiliate marketing?

Affiliate marketing is one of the oldest forms of marketing, where you refer someone to any online product, when a person buys the product based on your recommendation, you will get a commission out of the sale amount.
This commission amount varies from $1 to $10000, depending on what product you are promoting and recommending. Let’s have a graphical example below.



The most common question is: How companies track the record of who is sending the traffic and who is making sales? The simple answer is tracking URL, which is a unique link given to you by the affiliate company or the product company.
This unique tracking link is used to keep a track of all the traffic and sales you are making via your Affiliate link(s).

Tip: Many old fashioned Affiliate programs, let a buyer add the Email or referral details, which is also accounted for affiliate sales, but certainly not the best way to track progress. This is still popularly used by betting sites and other online businesses in Nigeria. It is old fashioned and can bring about loose of sales, we will not discuss about this here.

So, in simple words:

Many online companies and individuals that sell digital products like software or informational products (video, audio, eBooks e.t.c) or physical products like Shoes, bags, phones or services like Webhosting space or any online service, offers an affiliate program.

Note: I will share tricks to find these affiliate programs later in this guide
Every affiliate program have their set of Terms of Standards (TOS), for example, many of them offer 60 days cookie period, that means, if a visitor uses your special affiliate link to land on their sales page and leave the site instead of buying today, he buys the product within next 60 days on the same laptop, you will be earning the affiliate commission.

Another interesting thing to know is: You will get paid for other products purchases. For example, if you refer a user to Amazon.com using your affiliate link & he purchases some other product which you haven’t recommended, you will still get commission out of it. This is one major reason that makes affiliate marketing so lucrative & beneficial.


A GLOSSARY OF AFFILIATE MARKETING TERMS

 Affiliates: these are in other words referred to as promoters. They include me and you that use our affiliate links to bring sales to the publishers

 Affiliate marketplace: These are meeting points or intermediary between publishers and affiliate marketers. Publishers showcase their products in affiliate market places for affiliates to evaluate and promote. Examples include Jvzoo, ShareASale, CJ (Commission Junction), Clickbank which works as central database for affiliate programs in different niche.

 Affiliate software: This is software that makes it very easy for companies to create affiliate program for their products. Eg: iDevaffiliate.

 Affiliate link: Special tracking link offered by your affiliate program to track the progress of your affiliate promotion.

 Affiliate ID: This is Similar to Affiliate link, but, in this case, many affiliate programs offer a unique ID, which you can add to any page of the product you want to promote.

 Payment mode: This is the means through which you will receive your cash. Different affiliate program offers a different method of payment. E.g: Check, Wire transfer, PayPal and many more.

 Affiliate Manager: Many companies have dedicated affiliate manager to help publishers and affiliate marketers earn more and give them optimization tips.

 Commission percentage/amount: The amount or percentage of sales amount you will be getting after every sale happened via your affiliate link.

 2 Tier affiliate marketing: This is a great way of making money from an affiliate program. In this, you recommend others to join affiliate programs, and you will get a commission out of it, when sub-affiliate makes sales. More like MLM (Multi-level marketing). This is popularly known as Sub-affiliate commission.

 Landing pages: A unique product sales or demo page to increase the sales. Most of the programs that you will be promoting have many landing pages, and you can run A/B testing to see which converts more for you. More on A/B testing later

 Custom Affiliate Income/ account: Unlike a generic affiliate account, many companies offer custom affiliate income to people making most affiliate sales for them.

 Link cloaking: Most of the affiliate tracking links are ugly and using a Link cloaking technique, you can turn ugly looking links into human readable links. I have shared technique below to do that.

 Custom coupons: Many Programs let affiliates create custom coupon, which is also used to track sales. Also, custom discount coupons help you to increase affiliate sales. If you are giving good number of sale to any particular merchant you can always ask them for an exclusive coupon for yourself. A company gets benefit from an affiliate program as this is one of the best ways to get free promotion and save on advertising. For example, whenever you see coupons or discounted links, most of the time such links are affiliate links, and when you make a purchase, webmasters make money out it.

how to access affiliate products to market

There are 2 ways through which you can access affiliate products for marketing. It can be direct between you as an affiliate and a merchant. Such affiliate programs do not require intervention of a third party. The second requires a 3rd party like clickbank. The merchant showcase his affiliate program on clickbank, you access and assess the program on clickbank, you market it, make sales and clickbank pays you. In this guide we will focus on the 2nd option that has an intervention of a 3rd party.

Lecture Continues.

Important Affiliate Market Places You should Know

http://www.Clickbank.com

ClickBank is the largest online marketplace for digital products, and you'll be able to quickly pinpoint hot sellers by browsing through their many categories. ClickBank offers detailed statistics and information regarding each product making it even easier to quickly evaluate the profitability of potential campaigns.
There are many other affiliate networks and marketplaces worth exploring, with many offering a combination of both digital and physical products. more on clickbank as we continue

COMMISSION JUNCTION

Otherwise known as “CJ.com”, Commission Junction has been around for many years and is known to pay on time and provide unbeatable support. They also feature hundreds of merchants across the board covering thousands of niche markets.
You may require approval prior to being able to participate in some affiliate programs as Commission Junction provides merchants the opportunity to pre-approve affiliates, but the application is extremely simple and you can expect to receive a response in a matter of a few hours. http://www.CommissionJunction.com

SHARE A SALE
http://www.ShareASale.com
ShareASale.com has grown into an extensive affiliate marketplace, and since all merchants are required to retain a cash balance of funds used to pay affiliates, it’s a risk-free way to ensure that you are paid for all of your efforts.


PAY DOT COM
http://www.paydotcom.com
PayDotCom is similar to ClickBank considering it only features digital products. One of the key differences between PayDotCom and Clickbank however is that when promoting products through PayDotCom, it's up the merchant to pay you, and this is done primarily through PayPal. With ClickBank, you are paid by the company itself based on their payment schedule (every two weeks for paper check or weekly via direct bank transfer).


REQUIREMENTS FOR STARTING AFFILIATE MARKETING IN NIGERIA

1. Accounts with the desired or all the aforementioned affiliate networks

2. Foreign address for registering on clickbank only

3. A free hosted squeeze page for collecting potential subscriber's emails or paid

4. A Domain with hosting either free or paid hosting.

5. Means of withdrawing your cash using 3rd party. I will discuss this later.

6. A free vpn (visual private network) for creating a clickbank account. more on this later

All Important Questions Will Be Placed Here

question

olaolaking:
How long dd it take to make your first money?

Answer

bro frankly it was not easy. during those early days i was a strong believer of google has everything this was mainly because i didnt want to invest in any guide or ebooks. so i used the trial and error method and spent a year in affiliate marketing with only 3 sales. the commission per sale was 20 dollar so in other words it was a $60 year in affiliate marketing. the story all changed when i paid a successful affiliate marketer to teach me over skype the strategies he is using and since then, i have recorded many $200 day in affiliate marketing. after learning the new strategies the sales started coming in within 1 week or two.

olaolaking:

Like how much did you spend before you began to make money?

My free getresponse is expiring in 10 days time. I am not sure I will pay for it because I am not convinced that it will help me.
What should be the budget of a starter if there is any?
Thanks


budget really depends on the person that is starting. a person that has time at his disposal can get started even with zero naira. his traffic source will be free traffic. most free traffic sources requires 2-4 hours daily to make you reasonable pay. for a person that already has budget, he will need like 100usd to invest in traffic. affiliate marketing all comes down to traffic.

i focus only on the 3 evergreen niches. health, wealth and romance.

health includes niches such as: loosing weight, acne treatment, sexual performance, erectile dysfunction, dieting etc.
wealth: this include all mmo. make money online
romance: getting ex back, making you boyfriend love you, winning friends, wooing girls etc.

for auto-responder, use mailchimp forever free version till you are firm. it allows you to have up to 2000 subscribers and to send 12000 emails monthly.

GETTING STARTED USING CLICK BANK.

To register on clickbank you will need a vpn (virtual private network). this is a simple tool that is capable of changing your location from Nigeria to different countries like USA, Uk, GERMANY etc. examples include worldvpn, openvpn, pdproxy, tweakware vpn, hidemyass etc. these are not free vpn but are inexpensive and sometimes comes with free trial.
Most fake marketers that do not know anything about affiliate marketing but parading themselves as pros will tell you to register a u.s clickbank account. They are their parading it on various blogs, ebooks and websites. Please do not register a u.s clickbank account because you will be faced with the tax id problem and this can affect your withdrawal. Register only UK clickbank account.
