Blogging ABCs hosts Deborah Carney, Vinny O’Hare, Liz Fogg and Trica Meyer discuss what affiliate marketing is.
Vinny attended Blog World and had many bloggers ask what affiliate marketing is. Simply put affiliate marketing is affiliates (bloggers) putting special tracking links (affiliate links from a network or merchant) on their websites (blogs). When a visitor to a blog clicks an affiliate link and makes a purchase, the blogger makes a commission on that sale. That is the simple explanation 🙂 Listen for lots more great information and how affiliate marketing can be one way to possibly monetize your blog.
We would like to challenge you to find one network or merchant that you would want to work with and see how it would fit into your blog.
