What is Affiliate Marketing?
What is an affiliate? How does affiliate marketing work? While it may seem unfamiliar, don’t worry; you’ll discover the answers when you go through this article.
A quick Google search will let you see an overview of what is an affiliate marketing program. You might find various articles explaining different setups, itemizing the basics, or even how to get started.
Confused and don’t know where to start? To save you time, we’ll explain it to you!
Simply put, affiliate marketing is a marketing relationship between a brand and an influencer. Once they agree to work together, the brand and the influencer will work together to promote the brand’s products and services.
In return, the influencer will be compensated according to a pre-agreed arrangement. Once you become a part of an Affiliate Program, you now represent the said brand and thus, become their affiliate.
Meanwhile, there would be several expectations from the brand that you may need to execute to get compensated. More often than not, you will not just review a product or a service but actively advocate for them. This can be a YouTube video, an Instagram photo, or even a TikTok dance!
As the saying goes, you are the face of the brand. Hence, whenever you create content, you must know how it would affect the brands you represent.
Who qualifies as an Affiliate?
While there’s no strict rule on who can become an affiliate, each brand can define their target audience and choose influencers they think to reflect their company values and style.
Here are some statistics from a Blogapalooza report on the Philippines’ affiliate marketing industry to give you an idea of how this career thrives in the country.
- 55% of influencers sampled fall in the 18-25-year-old age range.
- They are mostly female, garnering 80.8% as opposed to the 19.2 percent of male influencers.
- The majority of influencers live in the National Capital Region, getting the lion’s share of 53.8% of the respondents. Still, CALABARZON garnered second place with 23%, and the Bicol Region followed, with 14.4% of the total respondents.
- The most popular niches chosen by these respondents are Beauty and Makeup (37.5%), Lifestyle (32.7%), Family and Relationships (10.6%), and Fashion and Style (9.6%).
You can probably tell where you belong and how you differ from most influencers from these numbers. Perhaps it could also give you an idea about your potential competition in the field. But demographics alone do not define who can enjoy the success of Affiliate Marketing.
Your social media profile also can affect your affiliate marketing journey! By social media profile, we don’t just mean how aesthetic your feed is. Rather, brands check your years of experience as a content creator and the level of engagement you get from your audience. This allows businesses to gauge whether you have an effective campaign.
Your numbers also tell of your reach. This is where “classification” among influencers exists. In a Forbes article, the classification is a preview for businesses of how many people you can potentially convert for the brand. However, it also gives them an idea of your authentic conversations with your followers, your availability to grow with the brand, and possibly the cost of your services.
Here is the usual classification according to follower count:
Their followers reach millions, and they can cover many topics. Big brands go for them as they reach a wider audience. However, their relationships with their followers tend to be distant, for they have a lot. Celebrities, musicians, and actors usually fall into this category.
With a follower count ranging from a hundred thousand to a million, a macro-influencer is a dial down from a mega-influencer. They have a niche they concentrate on. That’s why your favorite vloggers can be one of them. Because of the content they produce, they relate to a more defined audience. For example, for makeup tips, ladies tune in to Camille Co; and men follow MotoDeck for his motorcycle vlogs.
As the number of followers ranges now from only 1,000 to 100,000, you may now be classified as a micro-influencer. While you may be less “internet-famous,” you can rest easy knowing that whoever is following you is genuinely engaged with you and your content. They may even view you as a topic specialist because it’s not just the niche you choose to focus on, but it becomes your specialty.
As the name goes, influencers in this category have less than a thousand followers but have a highly engaged community. It could be a local figure in a specific community, such as a local politician, a pastor, or even a community leader.
What can you get as an Affiliate Marketer?
Now that you have an idea who qualifies as an affiliate marketer and what do they typically do, you might wonder what’s in it for you? Once you engage in it, here’s how you can benefit from affiliate marketing.
As compared to an employee, you have the freedom to choose who you work with and how you use your time. You have the luxury to decide how you can execute your work creatively, as this is performance-based. As a career, you can easily control how you will achieve success.
Increased Income Stream
Aside from your usual commissions earned by your content on specific platforms, you can maximize your views when you receive revenues from your ties with particular brands. Whenever your audience clicks on your affiliate link or uses your affiliate code seen on your content, you earn a portion of the sale or from a certain number of views. In the same Blogapalooza report, 52.9% of affiliates report earning four digits in total since they started their career as an affiliate marketer.
Easy to Scale
Because you have the freedom to work with several brands, you can quickly scale your marketing efforts, widen your network, and thus reap more rewards.
You can also connect with other marketers and with small to medium business brands to grow your reach. In fact, 69.2% of affiliates of respondents confirm that they have worked with small businesses in promoting products or services through the affiliate marketing model.
