There are many ways to make money on the internet. We can indeed look at dropshipping, which is a real phenomenon among web entrepreneurs. It is also possible to live thanks to its content, whether written, video or audio. Indeed, today you can create a blog or a Youtube channel to create content on a particular topic to attract prospects. Then you just have to sell training, or why not a book to your audience in order to generate income. However, when you have an audience, it may be worthwhile to focus on the affiliation. So today we’re looking at several affiliate platforms that you might be interested in if you are.
What is affiliation ?
Before we begin, a reminder is in order for people who do not yet know exactly what is affiliation. It is a lever used more and more by entrepreneurs to make a living on the web. In fact, the idea is to promote someone else’s product or service in order to generate income for them, but also for you since you earn commissions on sales.
Usually, it is necessary to have a qualified audience. Then all you need to do is research products or services that might be of interest to that particular audience. When you have found the perfect product, you can promote it to your audience.
Depending on the situation, you will have to demonstrate it or simply highlight the strong arguments of the product in question. Everything is played here, since you have to be able to fully understand your audience and sell the product to them in an appropriate way.
There it will then be important to share a link or discount code that will let the seller of the product know that sales are made because of you. You will then be remunerated according to the number of sales or the turnover made thanks to you.
It is possible to go directly to a salesperson and work out with them regarding the commission rate or other aspects of the collaboration. Otherwise, you can opt for platforms d’affiliation. The latter offer you many products or services to promote, with predefined commissions.
How to choose your affiliate platform ?
The number of platforms dedicated to affiliation is very large. This is the reason why it is essential to choose the right platform (s) to use.
For this, you have to take into account different criteria that will ensure you do not go wrong.
The type of products offered
First, it is necessary to check the type of products that the platform offers. If you have a blog on entrepreneurship and only want to promote online training courses, for example, it is good to know the platforms specializing in this field. If, on the contrary, you have a blog on general health, it may be interesting to be able to offer physical products or digital products.
It is important to compare the different platforms with regard to the statistics made available to affiliates. Indeed, it is necessary to track the conversions you have made in order to be able to understand what is working and what is not with your audience.
So remember to check that there is indeed a possibility of tracking sales and commissions.
The quality of advertisers
Depending on the platform, advertisers have more or fewer steps to follow and information to provide about their products. If anyone can put their product on the platform, you won’t be able to tell if all the products you want to promote are of high quality unless you buy them all (which is not obvious if you start with little investment).
You must therefore be sure of the quality of the advertisers of the platforms that interest you..
Finally, to be sure you don’t have a problem, it is important to take into consideration the level of customer support quality. Is the platform support responsive? You can try to find reviews on Google or in Facebook groups for example.
What are the best affiliate platforms ?
There is a multitude of platforms offering the possibility of making affiliation. We have selected a few to guide you in choosing the right platform.
