How can affiliate marketing grow a business?
Are you stuck in your business? Is online marketing not working out for you like you hoped it would? Let’s face it, we cannot all be experts at everything. SEO and online marketing are major skill sets with steep learning curves unto themselves. That’s why I am a big fan of using affiliate marketing to grow small businesses.
Affiliate marketing allows entrepreneurs to leverage the power of expert online marketers without having to do much work or spend a ton of money. The idea is simple, set up an affiliate program with one of the many major networks, and let other people sell your products for you. Affiliate networks are places that act as a middle man between the merchants and publishers. All a startup needs to do is setup an an account with an affiliate network, and they will promote your products to affiliate marketers, who will in turn sell your products for you, for a percentage of the purchase price.
Here is a list of the top Affiliate Networks:
- Digital River OneNetwork through RegNow
- Commission Junction
