Some merchants are using outsourced (affiliate) program management (OPM) companies, which are themselves often run by affiliate managers and network program managers. OPM companies perform affiliate program management for the merchants as a service, similar to the role an advertising agencies serves in offline marketing.
I’m signed up for the Amazon affiliate program, and when I click on the “link to this page” I get HTML code, which is all fine and dandy, but it doesn’t work well when I want to share an affiliate link on Facebook. If I just copy the URL of the given item, will it magically be an affiliates link? Or what else should I be doing?

After years of experimenting, I now look back and wish I would have started affiliate marketing through my blog sooner. It’s proven my best bet to make extra money without directly trading hours to earn it, as I would with freelancing or coaching.
I’m now looking to set up a niche site in the next month or so to better leverage the program and your advice. And, of course collectively, this should help on the commission rate. I’ve been at 6.5% and hoping this month I may hit 7%. But, the key issue is that the avg sale is low (no surprise given what I’m promoting) so hopefully, this new site will help with this and diversify my efforts.
Affiliate marketing allows you to make money online, even if you don’t have blog, website, or any products of your own. Following a few simple steps can get you up and running within hours and earning your first commissions right away.
Also i wanted to note from my last comment, i did end up trying to join the amazon affiliate program since i last read this, but could not find any general text links that i could attach to any sites that i own (even though its only one or two)
Nicely written and so helpful info. Having too much advertisement in a site is so painful for visitor cause it makes the site look cheaper. Instead, If one can limit the number of one’s advertisement and have some affiliation it would be way cool and wouldn’t be so harsh for the visitors . You have shared some significant point for affiliate marketing . Thanks for sharing
When promoting a product, you are also promoting the person or organization that owns the product. This should be the first thing to know before selecting the product you are promoting. You surely don’t want your clients to be unhappy after purchasing the product. Trust me; they will never come back to your site again to purchase anything! This is because you have dented your credibility. Normally, any company or website with good customer service is bound to have happy customers.
To stray from the legalese for a moment and put a bow on all this, there are a couple other things that suggest that using affiliate links is acceptable. For one, highly successful channels have, and continue to, feature affiliate links. Secondly, everyone benefits from quality content that is enhanced by affiliate links. YouTube gains videos and viewers that they can monetize, Amazon (and other businesses with affiliate programs) gains a new inlet to their shopping site, the viewers get entertaining and informative content that offers them a way to buy what’s been discussed, and the content creators (you) are rewarded for hard work and creativity. In a situation where everyone wins, it is hard to see why anyone would want to fiddle with it.
Set up a website. Professional or business websites can also use the Affiliate program. However, they are best used with people who do not sell similar products on their website, since Amazon’s marketplace can drive business away. If you have a website promoting different products, a club, a non-profit or a service, then you can recommend quality products on your site and make money doing it.

Hi, Steve! Thank you for sharing this. You’re right, I shy away from making videos because I don’t believe I can make one. I enjoyed watching the video that you have prepared; it was very explanatory. I also visited Animoto and I liked it very much. I want to start making my own video now and I hope I will be successful in creating and promoting it.
Once you are cleared to promote a particular product and you understand the terms for that campaign, you look through the list of available buttons, banners, text links, etc. for that product. You choose the one that you like most and copy the code they provide for you. This code has your unique ID in it. Use this link when promoting the product.
The most advantageous aspect of affiliate marketing is that once you get a solid affiliate program in place, you can essentially earn an income on autopilot. All that’s really required is a steady flow of traffic to your blog or website. There are some downsides, however.
Now one thing that’s not mentioned is that videos typically rank faster and higher than written content. And I speak from experience. With the videos I create for my other site I have countless first page rankings in Google.
