Make money with affiliate programs

If you want to start earning money with a website and you do not have your own products or services that you can offer, then you can use affiliate programs to display banners and text links on your own website and make money from them.

The easiest way is via so-called  affiliate program networks . These are companies (they become advertisers or merchants

You yourself ( publisher or affiliate , who is always the one who recommends products and thus earns something) can log in to these portals with his website .

Once you have done that, you can apply for individual partner programs, different companies.

If your own page then accepted (which may take up to 2-3 weeks), you can from this time z. B. banner ads or text links from the partner network on their own homepage.

You then receive a fee (also known as a commission) if someone has bought something from their own banner or text link at the respective company.

Some affiliate program networks, such as B. Superclix, require only a single sign-on. After the single sign-up you will get immediate access to almost all partner programs of this partner network.

That’s how you get paid

  • Payment per click on the displayed advertising material

Tips to make money

Targeted, forwarded visitors bring the turnover

The recommendation of a product will pay off only if the visitors of a website are also interested in the topic of the affiliate product.

So it does not matter if you run a website with information on migratory birds and then a partner program for cheap prepaid mobile discounters on it switches.

One can imagine the use of affiliate programs, such as further information for visitors to their own website. On the own website there is good information on this topic. And on the linked page, the visitor can then, suitably, acquire something.

If you follow this approach and your own website has regular visitors (> 30 visitors / day should be at least), you will drive well with the application of a partner program.

What’s left over?

This varies greatly, depending on how your own website content and visually designed (also based on the expectations of your target audience). As a rule, only a few percent (0.5-2%) of all site visitors click on inserted banners and text links.

For comparison: A free newsletter is subscribed to on average by 5-20% of all visitors. A recommended product will buy only about 0.2-3% of all website visitors who have been redirected to an offer.

Admission criteria to be approved for your desired partner program

Certain minimum standards should be adhered to by the website in order to be accepted as an advertising partner by the networks. Some providers consider each applicant individually who wants to promote a particular affiliate program.

The following information is considered a minimum standard:

  • The website contains a proper imprint
  • There is  no illegal content
  • The website does not contain any erotic content
  • The website does not represent any views of marginalized political groups (eg right-wing extremist scene)
