Affiliate Marketing: Different Types


Affiliate Marketing is classified into many types. 

All kinds fall under two basic categories. 



These are pay/click and pay/performance.

Pay/Click

It is also called PPC. 

It is considered to be the easiest and most popular affiliate marketing method. This is the greatest thing for small websites. With this method the affiliate marketer places the banners and text ads of merchants on his website. The affiliate is paid for every click made on these banners. 

When any visitor clicks on these banners and visits the merchant website, the affiliate gets credited. It is not essential that the visitor makes a purchase. However, the typical earning for a single click is very small, usually less than one dollar.

Pay/Performance

Pay/performance affiliate marketing, also called PPC, is extremely famous among big affiliates and all types of merchants. In this method the affiliate gets credited only when any visitor from their affiliate id performs the required action. This required action may be a purchase or becoming a member of a merchant website. 

This method is very good for the merchants because they will only pay when they are paid. For affiliates, it is attractive because they are getting a good share in the sales of merchant products. The usual share is about 15-20% of sale.

If we classify the affiliate marketing on the basis of depth, then it can be divided into 3 classes. These are single-, two-tier and multi-tier programs. Another type is the one in which an affiliate marketer is paid for every sale that is made by a person referred by him. This is called residual income affiliate marketing. Let us study these types in detail.

Affiliate Marketing: 1-Tier, 2-Tier & Multi-Tier

In an affiliate program of single-tier nature, the affiliates get the commission, only, for the visitor's traffic or sales to the merchant's website. Pay/performance and pay/click fall under this category.

Talking about Two-tier marketing, the affiliate gets the commission for every action done by the visitors referred by him. Plus he will get the profit whenever some other affiliate, referred by him, gets the commission. So in this way affiliate is earning directly as well as indirectly.

The multi-tier marketing is the same as two-tier marketing. But in this type, the affiliates get the commission for the sales made by their affiliated affiliates in multiple tiers. The depth of this type may be unlimited.

Residual Income Marketing

In this type of marketing, affiliates get the commission for every sale that his referred person makes on the merchant website. The only requirement is that on the first time visit, the person should come from the affiliate link of the affiliate. Next time if the same person visits the merchant website, even without using the affiliate link, the affiliate will be paid for every sale made by the visitor. 

The question that arises is how the merchant will know the affiliate id. The answer is very simple. On the first visit of the person from the affiliate website, a cookie is created on the computer of the visitor. 

This cookie stores the affiliate id of the affiliate. 

This cookie usually expires after 3 months. 

In some cases it may be longer. Whenever a visitor visits the merchant website, the visitor's computer is checked for the existence of any previously created cookie. If the cookie is found, the affiliate id is retrieved from it and the affiliate gets credited for any purchase made by the visitor.

Criteria for the Best Affiliate Marketing Programs


Variety is a good thing but when there are so many choices for a single purpose, it can be very confusing. Such is often the case when prospective affiliates try to make their decisions regarding the best affiliate marketing program to use. 

Since the choice of an affiliate marketing program is critical to your success, find out which among the hundreds now available is the best program to use. Here are some criteria to look for:

The affiliate marketing program is top quality

Always go for the affiliate marketing program that is backed up by a reliable and trustworthy team with the appropriate and sufficient knowledge about the industry. 

Check the affiliate product and services as well. Are they for real, offer good value and are saleable? Remember that you will be putting your own credibility on the line when you sign up for that program. If it's trustworthy, then you will be viewed as such as well.

The affiliate product is 'hot' or getting there

Stay current on market demands and about the 'hottest' and 'to watch out for' products. A simple search online will help you find out the kind of things that people are looking for and are willing to buy. There's a good chance an affiliate marketing program is selling that product. When a product has a high market demand, it's much easier to sell.

This is good news for you as an affiliate of that program since there won't be any backbreaking work to do just to get the product off the ground. It will sell on its own or for minimal effort.

The affiliate marketing program pays high commissions

Ultimately, the affiliate's goal in signing up for an affiliate marketing program is to earn money

In affiliate marketing, earnings come in the form of commissions – usually a percentage off the sale of a product. Why settle for a low-paying program when there are others from which you can benefit more from given the same amount of efforts on your part?

When considering what affiliate marketing program to use, choose those that offer higher commission rates. Good rates range from about 50 percent to 75 percent. If the program pays lower than that, you might want to reconsider. It may not be worth your effort at all.

The affiliate marketing program has a higher than usual conversion rate

Conversion rate refers to the period it takes for a prospect who clicks on an affiliate site to become a paying customer. In affiliate marketing, this can be notoriously fickle, with leads taking as much as 60 days before ever purchasing anything.

A good indication that a particular affiliate marketing program is the best one to use is its high conversion rate. 

This means that more visitors to an affiliate's site become buyers. When there are more buyers, an affiliate's earnings increase.

To find out about their conversion rate, you can check an affiliate marketing program's website. Some of them publish this information. If not, you will have to test the product yourself using targeted visitors to see how well it performs.

The affiliate marketing program offers full support.

This is an especially important criteria to look for when deciding what affiliate marketing program to use if you're a beginner. There are many programs that will offer their system and leave you to your own devices without checking in on your progress.

If you're not a self-starter or are wary of affiliate marketing programs that don't assist their affiliates, avoid these types. Use affiliate marketing programs that provide sufficient information, training and affiliate support. You will appreciate this extra feature in case you run into a bit of trouble later.

Can You Really Make Money Doing Nothing With Internet Marketing


The short answer is a resounding "NO"! At least not if you are new to marketing online. Not at first. But most everyone dreams of being able to make money doing nothing. 

And internet marketing can be used to eventually make passive residual income. Residual income is income that continues to be generated after the initial effort has been expended. So, if you work hard and do things right in the beginning, you will continue to earn off of this effort, even long after you have moved on to other things.

Success in internet marketing usually comes very slowly. 

You could go on for years without seeing any return, but if you are consistent and continue to work at it, you will gradually begin to see the money rolling in. And once this happens, you will see the snowball effect take place and eventually you will be able to make money doing nothing!

So what do you need to work at? You need to bring traffic to whatever it is that you are promoting - to your blog or website or to your affiliate product website. The more people you can get to your website, the more sales you will make.

So what are some of the pros and cons of internet marketing?

First of all, if you prefer to have a regular "guaranteed" paycheck where the amount of time you put in equals the amount of money you receive, internet marketing is probably not for you. If you don't like to study and learn new things, learning internet marketing is probably not for you. If you need someone else to motivate you or manage your activities, internet marketing is not for you.

One of the most obvious pros of internet marketing is that you don't have a boss telling you what to do. You work for yourself and make all the decisions. Being able to work whenever and wherever you please is a great goal to shoot for.

Your pay is not an hourly wage or salary so there is no limit to how much money you can make. Let's say for example that you decide to write your own e-book (it may sound difficult to you now but this is a very attainable goal if you do just a little bit of training). You spend a lot of time on this e-book and then you make money off of the sales for years to come - you just need to make sure that you are driving traffic to the sales page of your e-book.

This is what passive residual income is. . .and it is one of the greatest benefits that internet marketing offers. 

Putting out or representing a quality product once or twice a year will have a great impact on your income for the months or years, even if you're not working. Again, that's how you can make money doing nothing.

Equestrian Products: Horse Blankets


Equestrians engage into highly competitive sports. Although horse back riding is mostly reserved for the rich, people of all ages can try it. 

It takes a lot of work and discipline to be able to train a horse. It also takes a lot of patience to ride them. 

Equestrian sports have been included in the Olympics. 

Although the rider is as equally important as its horse, the chances of winning in the competition do not lie on them. 

Like racing cars it's important that horses are in their maximum health.

There are many products out there that could help the horse. They are available online. One of the most important products is the horse blanket. They can also be called rugs or sheets.

Does my horse need a blanket?

Horse blankets are important to protect horses from nature's elements. Like us they also need to be protected from the rain, cold, wind and heat from the sun. Horses that are left without blankets during the season have more chances of getting ill.

There are different types of horse blankets, rugs or sheets. 

Their use will depend on what your horse needs.

Coolers and anti-sweat rugs

As the name suggests they prevent the horse from getting chills when they cool down after exercise. These rugs are breathable with mesh. The size of the mesh can very depending on the horse. Fine mesh helps to keep off flies.

Fly sheet or rug

This protects the horse from insects and flies during summer when they are grazing. The sheet is also available with additional attachments such as neck covers, bonnets and fly masks. These additional products provide complete protection from the horse.

Summer sheet

It's a variation of the horse which is much lighter. They are used to protect horses from dusts and flies during summer. They can also be used as travel rugs.

Under blankets or liners

They are placed on the horse as a protection from friction from stable rugs. They are placed underneath stable rugs. 

They come in different materials. The traditional under blanket is made of wool. Modern under blankets are made of lightweight materials and are considered as under rugs.

Stable rugs

They are used to protect the horse from the cold during winter while being stabled. They come in varying, colors, thickness and weights. Different thickness and weights offer varying degrees of warmth. They are also breathable which enables the horse's sweat to evaporate. Under blanket can also be placed underneath the stable rug to add warmth. 

This is usually needed when the horse is stabled day and night.

Turnout rug

They are used to keep the horses clean when they are out in the field. They ca also provide warmth during the winter. Turnout rugs should be long enough to cover the horse's belly. 

The front should also have a good overlap. 

These rugs usually have pleats on the shoulders to enable movement. These rugs also come in different thickness and weights. Turnout rugs vary from light weight with no filling for the summer, and heavy weight with filling for the winter.

No matter which rug you use it's important to keep your horse well protected. 

Like a well oiled machine they perform best when taken cared off. Horses are not like cars that can be repaired again and again. A horse's health is as vital as the rider's.
