So what exactly does affiliate marketing do affiliate marketing?
Read here, everyone can understand how it works when doing p.r.o. What is affiliate marketing, right?
Surely, many people think that just finding a supplier, registering an affiliate link and selling products is enough!
It’s not that simple! Because there are many people who failed at the first time to experience this way of making money online, and I did :)).
So, to really know what to do with specific affiliate online marketing? Please follow my steps below.
Step 1: Choose the right product and niche when doing Affiliate Marketing
Before starting to work “making money” with affiliate marketing, you need to decide which products/industries/services you will promote and sell.
For me, there are 2 ways to help you find products to do effective affiliate marketing online:
– Do affiliate marketing for the product that you have been using. Now you will be more confident about the information, its effects and benefits.
Thereby, it will also increase the trust of the end customer who decides to buy products/services through your Affiliate Link.
– Choose products according to your niche. A niche market will have so many different products that it will be difficult to sell them all.
So, apply market research methods, products based on your available expertise to reach customers more easily.
For example, you love the field of fashion, and especially women’s fashion. Then boldly choose products related to women’s fashion to do.
Step 2: Find & register to participate in the Affiliate Program (affiliate marketing program)
After determining the area you want to do Affiliate Marketing, the next step is to learn about affiliate marketing programs.
This stage will take a long time to learn, but because the immediate “revenue” is coming very close, don’t be afraid to invest.
Usually, the Affiliate program of a certain company will be located at the bottom of the website.
In addition, I have a tip for people to easily find any online marketing affiliate program that is thanks to the “know-it-all” Google tool.
Specifically, on the Google search page, you search for keywords according to the structure “Brand name/product/service” + “Affiliate Program”.
Currently, there are many affiliate program networks from many different companies for you to find products to promote:
Vietnam: AccessTrade, Shoppe Affiliate, Lazada Affiliate, Aflex, Masoffer…
International: CJ, ShareaSale, Linkshare, Rakuten, Amazon, Impact Radius, ClickBank…
In addition, when choosing and deciding on a certain Affiliate marketing program to promote, you should also note:
– Is the product high or low competition?
– Who is the main audience for you to promote the product? (draw customer portrait)
– Does the product have a high or low commission?
– Is the policy to record commissions as CPS, CPL, CPO or CPI…?
For example: Currently, the trend of searching for affiliate marketing programs at e-commerce platforms like Shopee is chosen by many people.
Because, on these e-commerce sites, almost everything is sold. So your Niche ability is also sold on it. Therefore, this will be a very good place for you to start registering as your Affiliate Marketing by following the link https://affiliate.shopee.vn/.
Step 3: Create your own Affiliate link
After you have successfully registered to participate in the Affiliate program. Now the next step that you take is to turn the original link of the product into your own affiliate link.
Because if you don’t do this, no system will record the click rate, the rate of successful orders. At this time there is no basis for the Advertiser to pay you a commission.
In addition, because of a product, there will be many Publishers doing Affiliate Marketing. So Affiliate links will be the basis for calculating commissions for you or others.
If there is no Affiliate link, it means that this is not affiliated with online marketing!
To create affiliate marketing links, people will work directly at the registered address as Affiliate Marketing,

Once you have registered as an affiliate marketing member, creating an affiliate link is not too difficult.
Step 4: Promote products and services
Here comes the important step. After being a member of the “big family” of affiliate marketing, you will start selling and advertising to receive commissions.
The promotion and marketing of products with your affiliate link will depend on each person’s experience and ability to “sell“.
Note: Many people when doing Affiliate Marketing often spam links on most social networking sites. I do not encourage you to do this, because there is a high risk that you will have your social network account blocked for violating that policy.
Step 5: Get commission from p.r.o. affiliate
Depending on the number of successful orders that you market, you will receive a commission worthy of your effort.
Making money from Affiliate marketing for a Publisher is as simple as those 5 steps. That is also the most accurate answer to the title question. What exactly does affiliate marketing do?
