There are numerous business ideas out there for people interested in making some money online and one of them is affiliate marketing. Affiliate marketing is a performance based marketing where the business offers rewards to the affiliates for every customer they bring through their marketing efforts. The options, the niches, where it works are endless, but here are just a few ideas.
Travel affiliate marketing
If you travel a lot and have a travel site already, then adding affiliate links to your site is a no-brainer. You can promote hotels through Booking.com site for example, getting maybe around 25% of the fee the site earns (which is around 10-25% from the total amount, depending on the hotel), you can promote flights, trains, travel books, travel gear, tours. The options are sort of endless.
Poker affiliate marketing
If you’re yourself into poker, why not promote the same poker sites where you play. According to a friend of mine, for this pay off nicely, you’d need to be able to send anywhere between 5 and 10 new depositing players to the site every month. Not easy, but possible.
Betting affiliate marketing
Betting business is on the rise these days and more and more people are trying their hand in sports betting. Especially right now where people are looking for the best sites to bet on World cup. You might not earn a lot here, but then again, you might get extremely lucky with a few bad customers.
Casino affiliate marketing
Casino affiliate marketing might be the most profitable one of all. Although in most cases online casinos pay back anywhere between 93 and 97 percent, most people are losing money there considering there are Jackpots which go only to a few people who get extremely lucky.
Lottery affiliate marketing
While lottery affiliate marketing might not be the most popular one, this also means that there’s still room in this niche. So if you have a website which caters to visitors who might be interested in buying usa lottery, you might want to add your lottery affiliate links on your site.
Out of the box affiliate marketing
But affiliate marketing doesn’t all have to be online-based, selling products for companies or trying to get people to sign up and deposit on some gambling site. Affiliate marketing, it’s all about being the middleman, and bringing together the one who needs the product and the one who is selling it, and based on that, you don’t necessarily need to stick to the usual definition on affiliate marketing. Affiliate marketing can be anything where you act as a middleman. For example, many companies pay referral fees for sending them potential employees from certain countries or with certain skill set. Sometimes they are paying up to 500 or 1000 bucks for the right successful referrals. So there are more ways than you can imagine to earn with affiliate marketing.
