You’ve put blood, sweat and hopefully minimal tears into your site and it’s about time that you got something back. Wouldn’t that be great? A site that works exactly how you’ve designed it, while paying you an income? This is where affiliate marketing steps in to help.
What is affiliate marketing?
Affiliate marketing is how you can monetize your site and make a profit on your existing traffic. By partnering with a selection of merchants or brands, you work to promote their product or service and drive traffic to their site. The lucrative part of the deal is that you receive payment from the merchant for any traffic or conversions directed from your site.
The affiliate relationship is made up of four central players: the merchant, the network, the affiliate and the customer. Let’s take a look at the role of each of these players:
The merchant of this relationship represents anyone you will be marketing for, and is also the person who would pay you if you successfully direct new traffic to their site. For example, if you were to add a Midphase banner to your website and your traffic caused our sales to spike, Midphase would then pay you for your efforts and your existing traffic.
This portion of the affiliate relationship works as the middleman or go-between for the merchant and the affiliate. The network handles all payments, reporting and tracking, and also helps you get the affiliate package that best fits your site. Midphase has partnered with Aff.biz as our affiliate network. You can learn more about their services here.
This is the easy one: the affiliate is you. You build a site and a reputation that has a regular amount of traffic visiting each day. Through that traffic and your help the merchant is able to market their products and help your pocket too.
A customer within the affiliate relationship represents anyone who directly travels from the affiliate’s site to the merchant’s site to complete a predetermined task, such as signing up for a newsletter or purchasing a product or service. Customers begin their journey as normal traffic to an existing website and are directed through affiliate links to the merchant’s site. The affiliate in a sense is recruiting potential clients who might not otherwise have heard of the merchant’s products or services.
Affiliate marketing is an easy way to turn your everyday traffic into dollars. Midphase offers up to $125 for every sale completed! By adding an attractive link or small banner designed by our in-house developers to your site you can make the most of your website and let us pay you!
