A few years ago, I decided to buy a new guitar after selling the old one. But I couldn’t force myself to place an ad on eBay or another similar website because I don’t like the idea of discussing anything (especially money) with unfamiliar people. So here’s what I did.

I came to the owner of the studio that my band uses for rehearsals. I gave him the guitar and named the price. And that’s it! The owner meets lots of musicians, most of whom know how much a decent instrument costs.

After a couple of months, someone finally bought the guitar. I took my money and gave a certain percentage to the studio owner as a thank-you.

Back then, I didn’t know that this collaboration was actually a sort of affiliate marketing!

Affiliate programs for eCommerce: what are they?

Basically, affiliate marketing means that you promote someone else’s product and get paid whenever your promotion turns into a sale.  

Let’s assume I have a product (surfboards) and I want to sell it. Of course, my company has a marketing department looking for clients, but the more channels I use the higher profit I enjoy. So how do I increase sales?

I’ll make a deal with you. If you recommend my product to your friends, acquaintances or random people, I’ll pay you a reward.

For example, you live on the coast and go surfing almost every day. Furthermore, you have a blog about it, and a lot of people follow it. They know you. They trust you and your recommendations.

So I offer you to recommend my surfboards to your audience and give you an affiliate link. You place the link on your blog and tell people about my product. Those who got interested follow the link and get to the website of my company.

If they order a surfboard, your job is done, and I pay you, let’s say, 10% of the product’s price. And I keep doing it each time you bring me a customer.

Some affiliate programs for eCommerce use pay-per-click model. Others pay you a percentage of the profit made by a client brought by you to the company. In any case, all models are based on affiliate links.

How do affiliate links work?

how-affilaite-links-work.jpg

Affiliate links aren’t just URLs that lead to a web page. First of all, every affiliate partner gets a unique link for this business purpose. This is how the company you’re dealing with understands that a certain client came from you.

However, few people buy anything right away. Often, they follow your link just to check out the website and the products you recommended, and leave after that. Still, they may return in a week or even in a month (by using a direct link) and purchase the product. So how do you prove that it was your customer?

Cookies! I mean cookie files. Whenever someone clicks on your affiliate link, the link sends a cookie to the user’s computer. Even if the user leaves the website and returns days or weeks later, the cookie will tell the website that this customer was originally sent here from your blog or social media page or whatever. And that’s your proof!

Cookie files live for a certain period of time. The best affiliate programs for eCommerce use cookies with a 30 days duration or even those that don’t expire at all. This way, you can be sure that your affiliate program will not forget your efforts.

However, if the user changes his or her device, the program will not be able to identify the visitor as your client. There’s nothing you can do about it, but some programs also use customers’ emails to know for sure who sent them.

Tips on getting higher revenue from this affiliate program for eCommerce

Feel free to follow these experience-based strategies to develop an efficient affiliate marketing strategy!

  1. Research your product

You can’t convince someone to buy a product unless you clearly understand its benefits and features. Knowing what it can do and what problems it can solve is essential for each step of your marketing campaign.

  1. Know your audience

Target audience is the other end of the issue. Whenever someone buys something, it’s not the item they want but rather a solution to their problem. 

So, gather data and try to understand your audience, their problems and needs. Remember: if you get traffic but no sales, you’re probably attracting the wrong audience.

  1. Try different content types

Different types of content work well for different types of products. The problem is that you never know for sure what works and what doesn’t.

Don’t be afraid to experiment! Try this and that to see how efficient different methods are. In time, you’ll be able to focus on one or two best options. Same goes for promotion channels: try each of them to find the best.

  1. Develop a strategy

Even the best affiliate programs for eCommerce will bring you no money without efforts from your side. To build a successful affiliate business, you need to make up a step-by-step plan. This way, you can see what worked and what didn’t, what you should focus on and what resources it’ll take.

A successful affiliate business requires time and effort, but you can start with little to no budget. Many people regard it as a huge advantage. Besides, joining an affiliate program grants you useful experience you can later use for other projects. 

With due efforts, learning and experimentation, you will be able to build a solid business. Join one of the best affiliate programs for eCommerce to get stable income and vast experience in online promotion!

Please explain how can you compete with the affiliates in Alidropship that they do this for years .. So an old one vs. the one who starts now 🙂 .. Internet is full of Alidropship 🙂 Best Regards

    Thanks for your question! The first way to beat the competition is your audience. If you already have subscribers on your blog or followers on social media, they’ll definitely support you!

    If you don’t have a loyal audience –  the content is your power. If you’re producing quality content that meets audience’s interests and needs, you’ll be beyond all competition.
