What are Affiliate Marketing Links?

Affiliate Links are encoded tracking cookies, often in the form of an image, that you place on your website.  When a visitor clicks the link resulting in a sale from a publisher's website such as yours, the image's dedicated code allows the advertiser to track which publisher has earned the commission.  As the publisher, you will access for login to your account at the advertiser's website to check and view your sales successes.

Who Should Use Affiliate Marketing?

Almost anyone who owns a website can benefit from getting involved with affiliate marketing but especially those operating home-based businesses on a part-time basis.  Affiliate marketing can often provide a level of income that helps defray expenses during startup.  A few examples of enterprises that can benefit greatly from affiliate marketing are:

  • MOBILE NOTARY:  Notaries are legally unable to offer legal advice but that does not mean they cannot earn commissions.  Post links to law firms that provide document production such as online incorporating, real estate contract, etc.  Credit repair affiliations can also be considered to name a few.
  • NOTE / CASH FLOW BROKERS:  All note / cash flow brokers can benefit greatly from joining affiliate programs with such high-payout programs as law firms, real estate training, factoring and commercial finance, and many more. 
  • FACTORING BROKERS:  Factoring is one of the few methods of finance available to start up entrepreneurs and having links to law firms that provide incorporation, collections, and credit repair can be huge income generators.  For brokers only operating part time and working a day job, having links to online commission-generating funding sources means your website works for you when you cannot.
