Everybody loves shopping, offline as well as online. There are hundreds of online shops today each offering unique and general/common items. Some e-shops are big and some are small. Some websites are privately held and some are large corporate houses.
Shopping portals like Amazon and Flipkart earn a huge amount of money by selling various products from other companies. It is like an online shopping mall where you find an astonishing amount of variety and also great discounts. But the question arises how you can reap the benefits from these already existing shopping websites? Do you have to become a seller in order to earn or is there any other way of making money.
This is where Affiliate Marketing comes in. Nowadays every large and even some small companies are providing Affiliate programs where a publisher can register and start making money from his website. Since the product list is amazingly huge, you will find every item you can possibly think of.
Though it is not necessary, I would suggest that you have a website of your own. A content website is much preferred instead of a website dedicated entirely on affiliate links and products. For example, if you have a blog on Health and Fitness then you can sell products related to this niche. It will bring in more sales as the people will read the articles and then they buy the products that you recommend. This is very helpful indeed.
You’ll be amazed to know that many websites have been doing this since long. All they do is list products from other shopping sites and earn money by selling them. No shipping, no processing… nothing at all has to be done. Even price comparison websites do the same. They allow you to compare stuff and then you can buy from their affiliate links.
If you want to create a website then, as usual, I would suggest WordPress and Woocommerce for this. It is well made for this purpose. I personally have used it for a lot of my own and my client’s websites.
