Do you want to be an expert affiliate marketer someday? Before taking on any major steps to fulfill that goal, you need to do comprehensive research first. You need to spend time looking for the best products for your affiliate marketing journey.

Affiliate Marketing for Newbies

Affiliate marketing is the practice of recommending services and products to potential customers, earning a commission and generating a sale in return. The process usually involves 4 parties–the buyer, advertiser, the affiliate network and affiliate website. It sounds all technical, but this is one of the best ways to make money online in Malaysia.

The affiliate network

The affiliate network integrates a specific tracking cookie on the buyer’s browser when they visit an advertiser’s website. This is the result of clicking the affiliate link. Keep in mind that the affiliate link functions as the glue that makes the affiliate marketing process possible.

The Affiliate

The affiliate is the one that owns the website. This can be you, me or your landlady. It’s not really that complex to create a website suitable for the affiliate (though marketing the website efficiently is a different matter).

The website which the affiliate owns contains all the reviews and details about a product sold on the website of the advertiser. It also links to the product page of the advertiser through a special link, known as affiliate link.

The advertiser

This advertiser can be any business or organization that sells a service or product online. It could be Amazon or another small online arts and crafts shop.
