What exactly is affiliate marketing?

Hey, welcome to my blog.

If you're here I'm guessing your asking "what is affiliate marketing?"  and "why should I be interested?"

Affiliate marketing is a type of performance-based marketing in which a business rewards affiliates for bringing in customers or sales through their own marketing efforts.


So essentially, affiliates promote a product or service and if someone clicks on their unique affiliate link and makes a purchase, the affiliate earns a commission.

SEO, or search engine optimization, plays a big role in affiliate marketing because it's important for affiliates to rank well in search engine results pages (SERPs) in order to drive traffic to their affiliate links. 

By optimizing their content with keywords related to the product or service they're promoting, affiliates can improve their chances of ranking higher in SERPs and attracting more potential customers.

For example, let's say an affiliate is promoting a new fitness program. They might create a blog post or video review about the program and include relevant keywords like "fitness program," "workout at home," or "get in shape." 

By using these keywords strategically throughout their content, they can improve their chances of ranking well in search results when people search for those terms.

In addition to SEO, there are other strategies that affiliates use to promote their links, such as social media marketing, email marketing, and paid advertising.


But no matter what strategies they use, the goal is always to drive traffic and sales to the product or service they're promoting, and earn a commission in the process.
