Here is an example. I have a background in online education. Chances are if an online education phone number list company contacts me (and we've worked with a few before) I'm going to have a better idea of how to market that type of business because I have experiential advantage. I know the phone number list nuances of this industry so it won't take me long to learn how the phone number list industry or how this type of business works.
Let's say my client is a for-profit college and is willing to pay $100 per phone call. Well, if I'm confident in my phone number list marketing prowess, I might say, “Okay, you pay $100 per phone call and I'm going to go ahead and send you those phone calls. Let's work out the phone number list conditions. Maybe I can drive the calls for $25 per call and collect the $75 per call margin. If I'm able to get a lot of phone calls from qualified people to my affiliate partner, the for-profit university, then we're going phone number list to make a lot of money. Everyone will be happy.
Affiliate marketing is risk-free marketing
Of course, that's if I can conduct those phone calls. But if I can't, nobody loses either. The phone number list for-profit college pays me nothing unless I conduct these phone calls. This is why affiliate marketing can be very lucrative. I have a friend who works in a $15 million a year company. They focus strictly on Google AdWords , affiliate marketing, and product promotion. They don't try to get out of their way. They don't try to learn different things. They specialize in one thing and they do very well for themselves.
It's a very simple process. The affiliate management company finds affiliates and the phone number list affiliates push your product or service. All you have phone number list to do is pay for the affiliate part of the sales. The phone number list affiliate management company receives finder's fees for the management and processing phone number list of affiliates and their recruitment. It's a very good model overall.
Don't get scammed by bad affiliates
Let's say you're trying phone number list to promote a product and someone walks up to you and says, “Hey, you know we're good at it. We can help you with marketing and performance and you don't have phone number list to pay unless we deliver. Awesome, right? Don't jump the phone number list weapon too quickly. Let's go back to my for-profit university example. “Hey, I'll drive you. You pay me $100 each time. But what if I drive you a bunch phone number list of shitty calls from India? Then it's basically a call center. People call you, but they hang up in a second. These are not qualified calls.
