Let’s say that “you” start off with “absolutely nothing”.
Then there is someone or a company out there who offers a “valuable service” online for which they charge customers $49 per month.
That someone (or company) is willing to pay “anyone” (including you) $23.50 per month (out of the $49 per month) for referring others to their paid monthly service.
You either say to yourself “I don’t believe it” and go watch TV… or you research others who have been making money with that company and then realize “I may need to do a little bit of math here”.
You then pull out your smart phone calculator and multiply $23.50 per month (times) 1000 paying customers if you refer them to the company, you then hit the (equals) button…
What the hell?? That equals “$23,500 per month commission (or $282,000 per year)”!
Next you decide if the service provided by that company is actually being used every month by their customers, or even better, would you use the service yourself for $49 per month?
Then you do some research on the company’s overall “reputation” to find out if the customers are happy with the service and if the “affiliates” are really being paid reliable and trustworthy monthly commissions for their referrals.
You should understand that the company’s reputation ultimately affects “your reputation” as the person who is referring others to that online service and you will want to be as highly reputable as possible to your referrals.
“Your personal reputation” is far more important to you than any company’s reputation.
Once you are satisfied with all of the (above) conditions, you decide to begin referring people to that company’s website.
Much of it will be clearly explained to you in the following lessons.
But as a brief explanation for this scenario, you will need a tool which is provided by the company called an “affiliate link” which closely tracks everyone that you send to the company’s website.
An “affiliate link” is a company website URL link that contains an embedded unique ID code which is directly connected to your affiliate account.
When anyone clicks on your unique affiliate link, they will be sent to the company sales page just as if they went to the company’s website directly.
The only difference is that any sales that are made will then be tracked back to “you”.
Once someone has clicked on your affiliate link, the company will handle everything else from that point on.
The company’s sales page will close all of your referral sales and commissions for you.
The only thing that you will be doing is sending people to your “affiliate link”… and that’s it!
