An Introduction to Affiliate Programmes.
Webmasters, make money from your website! If you have a website,
and you are interested in making money, then you've come
to the right place! Did you know that a large range of companies
will actually pay you commissions for sending visitors their
way? Well they will! These companies, who sometimes operate through
"affiliate agencies", will provide you with small advertisements
and banners to display on your website. If a visitor then clicks
through to the advertised website, from your own website, you can
receive click through payments or commissions on sales. It's a simple
as that! Down the right hand side of the screen, you can see examples
of the types of advertisements used in affiliate programmes.
How do I register with these companies?
We have rounded up a selection of the best UK affiliate agencies for you to browse. Agencies operate on behalf of a large number of companies and signing up with one, it's usually free, will allow you almost instant access to a large number of affilate programmes. Check out our UK affiliate agency guide here.
Is it possible to "Get Rich Quick" using affiliate programmes?
The amount of money that you will earn from affiliate links
will largely depend on the number of visitors that your website
receives. Website with higher traffic figures have a much
greater chance of generating higher income levels than smaller
websites. However, webmasters of smaller sites should not
be deterred! A single visitor is capable of generating a 10%
commission on a sale of say £100, meaning you, the webmaster
would be paid £10! A couple of these every month can
lead to a nice monthly income! As an aside, many webmasters
of smaller websites have often commented that by displaying,
and being associated with large brand names and adverts, their
websites have actually seen an increase in traffic!
Which Affiliate programs should I sign up for?
Many webmasters decide to sign up with the companies offering the
largest click through rates or largest percentage commissions in
the hope of earning as much money as possible in the shortest time
possible. This can often work well but many webmasters find that
affiliate programmes which complement their site's content have
a much better chance of making bigger money. As an example, lets
say you have a website dedicated to music or a certain pop star.
You have a much better chance of earning large incomes by linking
to a Music Retailer, rather than a Fridge Freezer company! Our advice
is to choose programmes which relate to your website.
