Let’s understand Affiliate Marketing

Affiliate marketing is one of the tactics that bloggers use to earn money from their blogs. Affiliate Marketing is one of the oldest and most popular forms of marketing that has been adopted by many bloggers in India.

In this type of marketing, you refer someone to any of the online product that is listed on your blog. In the event that the person buys the product based on your reference and recommendation, you receive a commission from the website.

For every conversion done on your website and a person buys the product that you referred, you will receive a commission. This commission depends greatly on the product and the category that it falls into.

There are various slabs for Affiliate Marketing for different websites such as Amazon and Flipkart. There is an affiliate program for Snapdeal too, but Amazon and Flipkart are the only ones that are popular. Currently, the slab for the tech related products on affiliate marketing is quite low as compared to other categories such as Books.

Let’s understand the basic commission slab of Amazon and Flipkart website.

  • Amazon commission slab for mobiles phones is 4% however this commission does and will vary from mobile to mobile. For Gadgets like cameras, both DSLR and others; the commission that the tech bloggers receive is 4%.
  • For computer peripherals such as mouse, keyboards, CPU and more, the commission is 4%. For storage devices such as Pen drives, Hard disks and more; the commission is placed at 2%.
