Why do I have to write about a subject that is almost beaten to death on the internet – your assumption is right, I guess you ask?

What is affiliate marketing and how does it work is a topic that has been treated from several authority website on the worldwide-web by various blog authors, most especially – super affiliate marketers in the field.

But from what I can tell, there is never an ending to learning, and most especially when it comes to the internet – everything seems to be changing too fast here that we are at a point in our life-time that we need an updates to everything regularly.

The way things are done a year ago, may not be exactly how it is done today and possibly, there will be need to find better way(s) of doing same thing in the feature…..

While I was searching for same topic through the search engines, I noticed that most web pages that treated this subject are either written some four, five years ago, or didn’t approach it from a real beginners level. So I decided to bring something of freshness, unique and quality to this topic…….hopefully, someone out there will benefits immensely from reading it.

    Hi Shamsudeen,

    Yes, I agree with you. There are many sources that explain about affiliate marketing, but I find that most of them are intended for expert affiliate marketer. A beginner affiliates will be confusion in understanding it.

    I’m glad you wrote this article and you explain it simply and directly on point. Indeed, this article is suitable for beginner affiliate marketers. :)

    Honestly, I’ve also tried to do affiliate marketing before. Although I get something out of it, but it was not enough to make me proud. I think I will learn it again someday. :)

    Thanks for sharing, Shamsudeen.
    Hope you can enjoy your weekend!

      Hi Nanda,

      Am glad you find this article a beginners level entry, that is one of the purpose I choose to write.

      I believe I do understand your plight when you said you’ve done affiliate marketing in the past, but couldn’t get much to make you proud.

      Affiliate marketing is not much different from a real business, it takes some effective positive efforts to make significant income from affiliate marketing.

      Selling is not an easy thing, and that’s basically what affiliate marketing involves. Our job as an affiliate marketer is to pre-sale the product or services to the buyer, this is much easier said than done.

      But if we can fight the storm, affiliate marketing is much better business model on the internet behind selling your stuffs.

      Thanks Nanda.

    Hello Shamsudeen,

    Thanks for sharing this. But remember to always click the “king this” to “king” your own posts after sharing. I noticed you didn’t do that for this post.

    If you don’t get enough “kings” and engagement, you don’t get to the frontpage and you don’t get good enough traffic. So, always “king” your posts, to get the ball rolling,

    Personally I have listened to so many people who tried to get inside into how to explain affiliate marketing aspects. However i have never read an interesting piece of content like i did on your amazing blog posts

    Thanks so much for sharing

    I think that the most interesting thing for me regarding of affiliate marketing is that affiliate marketing programs do a lot to help you get started and most provide several different kinds of resources toward that end. However nobody has the responsibility to make it work for you except YOU!

    Thanks again Shamsudeen
    Best Regards towards your online success!
