What is Affiliate Marketing?

Sales in Cyberspace: Affiliate Marketing

If you've ventured into the world of online sales, congratulations! You have taken the first step to increasing sales of your product or service.

Now you just need a little help from your friends.

Affiliate marketing is designed to get you more exposure of your product to a wider audience of potential buyers. The affiliate marketing company advertise your products on multiple websites, and once you've made a sale through an affiliate's channel, they take a percentage (or fixed fee) of the sale. All you have to do is sit back and let the numbers go up, up, up!

Additionally, some affiliate marketing companies can advertise your product via email. This is a great option if you have a book, audio CD or e-book that you want to sell. In these cases, you really have to tell your potential buyers in detail the benefits that your informational resource will provide them, and email is a great format to do that.

If you have tried other methods of generating traffic to your site and sales in your account without success, take a look at affiliate marketing. It is changing the way we advertise – from being an expensive, long term commitment, to an affordable, easily updated relationship!
