We all know that the concept of affiliate marketing is simple: we are selling products or services for others. And of course, we are doing the marketing campaign for other vendors’ products to be sold to the public. In other words, it gives us the avenue to earn commissions by promoting other people’s or companies’ products.
We all started out by choosing a product we like or found rewarding. We then promote it in the most efficient way we can and make a sizable profit for our efforts. But at the end of the day, the most important and truly rewarding part of affiliating is when a sale is made. That’s right folks, our long hard earn commission!
Essentially, it is performance-based marketing. I’m sure you agree with me on this one; ‘how much you earn as an affiliate to the vendor corresponds to your sales’. If you were to make a lot of sales, then you’ll earn a big amount of commission. If not, however, you won’t earn as much.
That is why we must remember: we will only be commissioned when a sale is made through the link we provide. We will not be commissioned for sales that were made from other links.
But I know what you are thinking, you’ve done all that and yet it’s not enough, isn’t it? You would probably be wondering about the extra commission you can earn that will double, no, triple your commission! The truth about maximizing your commission is that it’s not as simple as it sounds, but it’s also not as difficult as you’d think.
