When I started my blog in November 2017, I had no clue what affiliate marketing was.
So what exactly is affiliate marketing?
Affiliate marketing is when you refer someone to a product or service, via affiliate links, and in return get paid a small commission, but only if there is a purchase made or if they sign up for some kind of service. There is no additional cost to that person whatsoever. They are only charged for whatever purchase they decide to make, that’s it. There’s no “catch” to it.
As a precaution: Affiliate marketing is only a scam when people are inauthentic about it; they just care about making the money and could care less about the products and services they are referring. So be careful and take caution.
The affiliate marketing programs I currently participate in are: Swagbucks
Swagbucks – I use this every day. There are just so many options to choose from. I don’t participate in the surveys much because it’s a waste of time, but I do use Swagbucks to search for various deals. I was able to get back $22 from Turbo Tax, just because I was signed into my Swagbucks account when I did my taxes. Swagbucks even has a deal with Amazon, so you not only do you get a deal with Amazon, you get a deal with Swagbucks.
If you sign up with Swagbucks through my referral link, I will receive 10% of whatever you earn through their account. So if you bought Turbo Tax through Swagbucks and earned $22 back from them, not only do you get $22, I get $2.20.
So far that’s all I have right now. If I come across anything new, I’ll be sure to update this page. Cheers!
