Most people don’t know what an affiliate is or how affiliate marketing works. Well, being an accountant who handles all the commissions for affiliate marketing payouts, I am here to tell you how it works!
You can sign up with many companies including ours and become an affiliate. In order to do this, you will need to sign up on our affiliate page and we will supply you a website URL specific to your account. From there you will add this link to your personal website.
This helps promote our company, and when someone clicks on the link on your page to sign up for a hosting package, we will be able to determine that the customer originally came from your website and you will receive a commission based off of the customer purchase.
Not only does this build a relationship between you and us but it also allows you to earn some income on the side. Once you are very familiar with affiliate marketing you can apply your skills to other areas also. You can sign up for multiple programs and earn income through multiple sources. Affiliate marketing is also free to sign up and there is no investment involved! It’s simple and easy too!
I hope this helps you better understand what an affiliate marketer is and I hope to see you sign up soon!
