What is Affiliate Marketing ?

If you have clicked on this article then you probably got an idea of what Affiliate Marketing is, but to put it in a nutshell, Affiliate Marketing is an incentive structure that encourages people to engage with the content. Usually social media influencers. Encourages creators and website owners to recommend you to their audience. Instead of earning a percentage. In other words, any actual sales you bring in will make money unless they help you make a lot of money first.

That means affiliate marketing is based on mutual incentive bidding, you want people to drive your business and products to you and those people want to earn extra money by making a percentage of the sales that they generate in practice,

You provide a way for people who sign up to receive a special link so that they share that link. When their visitors click on it and make a purchase on your website, the sale is recorded for both you and them in one dashboard so that everyone knows the result and commissions are automatically paid periodically Is. Is. People don’t need to sign up and share links and filled in affiliate links do a lot of work in their favor. The program is set up so that you don’t have to spend much time looking after the kids and the best part is that you don’t pay your partner a dime, you pay them only when they understand you. But because affiliate marketing is commission based, first of all you have to be sure of your price and more importantly your profit margin is big enough that you will remain profitable even after paying the commission.

There is a concept called the double keystone that you can use to evaluate your pricing. A double keystone means that the minimum value of each of your products doubles at every step between manufacturing and the customer receiving it. Now it can only double if for example you are making a product that you are making a dining room table and selling directly to the consumer on your website, double the keystone if it costs you ten dollars to make the product. The rule means you need to sell each for at least twenty dollars and that is the minimum.


But let’s say you have found a manufacturing partner to make your products and you not only want to sell directly to consumers, but you also want to wholesale to other stores. that they can sell for you too. If it cost you five dollars to make a partner it will at least double and you’ll be charged at least ten dollars less what you pay other stores to sell wholesale to them. At least twenty dollars and they in turn at least double and sell to your customers who buy from your store for at least forty dollars. As a cyborg this means you quadruple your cost when people buy sweets directly from you. Not reducing your wholesale customers By considering the double keystone rule as the absolute minimum you ensure that your margin is sufficient to be able to support an affiliate marketing program.
