What is Affiliate Marketing?

Affiliate marketing is when you promote other companies’ products. When someone buys through your affiliate link, you get a commission. 

As an affiliate, you’re a salesperson for the company. You help to make a sale, the company rewards you. 

The best thing about affiliate marketing is that you can do it at scale. A typical salesperson only sells products from one company. As an affiliate marketer, you can promote products from many different companies and earn commissions from all of them. 

How Does Affiliate Marketing Work?

The merchant gives each affiliate a unique link so they can track who was responsible for a sale. When someone clicks that link, a small file called a cookie gets stored on their device. 

An affiliate cookie does two things: 

  1. It helps the merchant attribute the sale back to the right person; 
  1. It (usually) holds an expiration date, so you get paid even if the buyer delays their purchase. 

Why Are Affiliate Sites Important for Your Wellness Business?

Since you already have your niche and well thought out brand, you cannot help but drive people to the links that will help to grow your business and your affiliate revenue.  Most people who try and build income this way usually do not have a focus—yours, the wellness/CBD Industry will set you apart from the rest and boost the growth much faster. 

Just keep in mind that you need to manage your expectations. You won’t earn the big bucks right off the bat, but don’t let this discourage you.  This gives your website credibility and content that you really need. 

The success of others tells you that with hard work, time, and the right knowledge, you too can potentially reach those levels.
