Sell Other People’s Products Through Affiliate Marketing

What Is Affiliate Marketing

There’s nothing wrong with helping others sell their awesome products… and you getting to benefit from it too.

Simply put, as an affiliate marketer, you show your own customers and website visitors a link to another seller’s product. If your customer buys the product the link is pointing to, you’ll get paid a commission!

This is called “affiliate marketing” (or being a “reseller”).

The cool thing about becoming an affiliate for other people’s products is that you don’t have to take care of tech support, write sales copy, or figure out the mechanics of having the user download the product. Usually, this is all done for you.

In addition, most companies, like Laughingbird Software, give you the sales page graphics you need to advertise, including banners and box shots. This helps you sell their product, so they’re happy to do so.

How to Become an Affiliate Marketer

You just need to show your customers the link to the product or service (this link has your special affiliate ID attached) and let them know you are helping to sell the product. It’s also helpful if you’ve had some experience with that product and can truly recommend it.

This is a great way to supplement your income from the convenience of your own home. And many entrepreneurs are affiliates full-time. 

However, depending on your customers and your business, you might also want to make extra graphics for social media marketing, your blog, and even your email campaigns.

Take a look at this WikiHow article and start setting up your own affiliate marketing accounts.

Once you have an account and a product to sell, create a graphic for each social media platform so that you’ll be ready to post as soon as you hit “go”.

Get started today and become a Laughingbird Software affiliate 🙂
