Let’s talk about affiliate marketing. These days, so many companies and affiliates are working together to increase sales, improve brand awareness, and make serious money. Have you thought about it for your business?
Affiliate marketing encompasses a broad range of complex partnerships online. Should you be working with online influencers for your brand? Are there other companies who would benefit from hiring you as an affiliate for their brand? There’s a lot to unpack.
Read on for an introduction to affiliate marketing: what it is and how it works, and how Connectica, LLC can help your business.
Let’s start with some basic definitions and market understanding. An affiliate marketing program is an agreement between two business entities. One hires the other, on a commission structure basis, to promote or feature products or services.
As the hiring entity, you want to seek out another business or influencer who reaches an audience you can’t or has selling power within your target audience.
As an affiliate marketer, you’ll want to seek out businesses that try to reach your audience and provide them with another avenue for brand or marketing. You accomplish this with a link or promotion on your website, social platforms, or channels.
Here’s a rough breakdown of various payment options you can negotiate when you explore affiliate marketing for your business:
Affiliate partnerships are all defined differently. However, it’s not uncommon to separate affiliate marketing types into three core categories:
You don’t have control or authority in the niche of the product or service you’re specifically advertising.
This refers to those who promote products and services they themselves don’t actually use but are somehow related to their niche.
This type of affiliate marketing is the promotion of products or services you use, believe in, or support directly.
In these programs, a company might use an entrepreneur or freelancer to help promote offerings on ad platforms for improved search results.
With these affiliate programs, a company within a niche market segment might work with an affiliate to review or research products or services.
Agencies will often use email marketing campaigns to reach their clients. A company can partner with these agencies to include an affiliate link within those email marketing campaigns.
There are influencers and bloggers online who command massive audiences of followers. With this affiliate partnership, a company can have these online figures promote or recommend a product or service.
