Let’s Discuss Affiliate Marketing
What is affiliate marketing?
What is an “affiliate” exactly?
An Affiliate is simply a person that is affiliated with a company product or service. And Affiliate is not a employee. They are independent of the company.
What is “marketing” exactly?
Marketing is simply the act of bringing a product or service to market. An Affiliate Marketer will promote a product or service hoping that a prospective customer will make the purchase.
Yes, it is that simple.
The difficulty for the Affiliate Marketer comes when they are working to get perfect alignment between a prospective customer and a product or service.
First, you need to get eyeballs on the offer.
Second, you need to make sure that these eyeballs belong to a person that is interested in the product or service.
Third, you need to know that this person is ready to buy, and has the funds to make the purchase.
There are a lot of distractions that are between each of these phases from when you first connect the prospect to the product, and when that prospect becomes a customer and actually makes the purchase.
The main objective of the Affiliate Marketer, is to stay top of mind with that prospective customer until they make that purchase.
Best of luck to you.
