‘Affiliate’ marketing refers to making money from a link.

With affiliate marketing you promote products and services offered by another business, when someone purchases via your link for that product or service you earn a commission.

These commissions are sometimes a percentage of the sale price or a fixed amount.

Affiliate marketing is beloved by influencers and bloggers – a way to provide a link to something that they love and want to promote whilst earning some money for doing so.

Most individuals partaking in affiliate marketing can bring in just a few pounds a year, but if you have a large audience you can rack up the commissions and take home some serious money.

Lots of platforms – like Amazon – have affiliate programs that you can join easily and start using straight away.
