This is by far is my number one method to make money online.
Simply, in affiliate marketing, you join an affiliate program of company and then you’re given a special affiliated link or you can say a special affiliate ID.
Actually in affiliate marketing you choose a product of company to promote and when somebody purchases through your affiliated link or affiliate ID, you get paid commission. That’s it.
Let I show you how a affiliate link looks like. See below this my affiliate link or you can say this is my affiliate Id of clickfunnels program which I am currently promoting.
Basically in affiliate marketing you get commission on per sale basis.
By the way if you want to join a free affiliate program then you can join clickfunnels free affiliate program.
Really clickfunnels affiliate program by far is the best affiliate program I have seen. Below you can see some of my income screenshots.

This is also similar to affiliate marketing but in CPA marketing you join a CPA network and choose a product to promote and when somebody completes a specific action, you get commission.
Note: – Specific action can be such as email submits, zip submit, app download, app install etc.
3. Email Marketing
