  • What is affiliate marketing?

    A type of online marketing in which a merchant partners with an affiliate to promote their products or services. In return for this promotion, the affiliate usually receives a commission.

  • What do affiliate marketers do?

    Affiliate marketers promote the products or services of their merchant partners (using their own site or many other general or niche ways).

  • How's this type of marketing different from normal marketing?

    Affiliate marketing is a performance-based form of marketing, meaning that affiliates are only paid if they can generate results for the merchant. Though we still suggest mixing what you learn from these books with what you'll learn from traditional marketing books.

  • So which books for marketing (not affiliate) do you recommend?

    We have our own list! Just search our site for our marketing list.

  • Can you get rich doing affiliate marketing?

    Yes! And there are people who make a lot of money or at least have a comfortable income (even side income). But you will need to choose the right products or services to promote, have a large audience, and be able to generate a significant amount of traffic.

  • How can I become an affiliate marketer?

    The simplest way we recommend to become an affiliate marketer is to sign up for a niche affiliate marketing program with a merchant partner. But that alone doesn't make you an affiliate marketer. The hardest part is you'll have to promote their products or services on your own website or blog (or by partnering with other sites to help you promote). Being an affiliate marketer is pretty straightforward if you plan well and learn quickly. And there are many resources to learn and get more data (not just these books) like classes and courses online (the first step is to look up online best training courses and check the one site that features most or works best for you) or some guide written by successful bloggers with a site that has authority in the space... There really are a myriad of ways!

  • Can you make money with Amazon affiliate marketing (or any other affiliate marketing program)?

    Yes! In fact, this very website is an example of an affiliate marketing business :)

  • What are some other good affiliate programs?

    There are many affiliate programs out there! A few examples are Clickbank, ShareASale, Rakuten Advertising, CJ, etc... The list goes on, but you'll have to test and find the best online affiliate marketing program for you.
