Affiliate Marketing

Affiliate marketing is a performance-based advertising model. An affiliate (publisher) promotes a product or service online and receives compensation for achieving a specific objective or action. A merchant (advertiser) specifies the goal, which is usually a valid sale. For example, the merchant will pay an affiliate a 30 percent sales commission.

We cover affiliate marketing, how it works, and show real-world examples in our course.

Yes, it is. Thousands of companies--including Amazon, Shopify, eBay, and Booking--use affiliate marketing to increase their leads and sales. Affiliate marketing is one of many digital marketing strategies and activities.

Affiliate marketing as a concept is easy to grasp. It's a matter of copying and pasting/adding links to web pages and content. However, making money as a marketer can be easy or hard, depending on the person. Also, generating affiliate commissions typically doesn't happen overnight. It usually takes time.

Making money in affiliate marketing is a function of getting enough traffic (people) to your blog, YouTube channel, or social media profile. Affiliates get traffic by creating and publishing content, such as posts and videos. Therefore, the quality, amount, and speed at which you create content will determine when you start earning money and how much. Many affiliates report making hundreds to thousands monthly. However, results differ for everyone.

No. Network marketing and MLM involve person-to-person sales. Also, reps are often incentivized (and sometimes pressured) to recruit others to increase their earnings. By contrast, affiliate marketing relies on links and content to generate sales and commissions. Therefore, you won’t have to bother your friends, family, and strangers for sales.

No, we don’t. Instead, Ranked Affiliate provides training and exclusive content to help people achieve their affiliate marketing, self-employment, and income goals.

Ranked Affiliate doesn't want to overcharge, rip people off, or force members to take huge loans. We charge an affordable and reasonable rate to access our content. The cost savings will allow you to spend money on other areas of your business.

An expensive course is just that, and a costly course. Also, we know enough about affiliate marketing to appreciate that there is no correlation between price and quality of content. For instance, an instructor can charge $997 and deliver useful or substandard information. That's why it's prudent to seek free and affordable content from reputable providers. (Beware of flashy “gurus” who promote their earnings, lifestyles, and possessions. It’s done to generate sales.)
