What Is the Affiliate Marketing Business Model?

what is the affiliate marketing business model

Thanks for stopping by on this post to learn about what is the affiliate marketing business model. The best part about affiliate marketing is that you can start with $0 online and gradually grow to a full time passive income. Affiliate marketing has become very popular during the last years and most people who get introduced to the idea of making money online start with affiliate marketing.

So on this post we are going to answer the question: what is the affiliate marketing business model and does it work, or is it just one of those organized scams. So let’s get started.

What Is Affiliate Marketing?

Affiliate marketing simply means earning commissions from selling products which do not belong to you. Basically, you are going to promote someone else’s products and make money from this.

Affiliate marketing has three main steps:

1. You recommend a product to someone

2. They buy the product

3. You get a percentage of the sale as a commission

How Do You Become an Affiliate Marketer

There are four steps to become an affiliate marketer:

1. Choose a niche

2. Create a website

3. Bring traffic to your website

4. Monetize your traffic

Affiliate marketing is not a pyramid scheme. Unlike multi-level-marketing, in affiliate marketing you don’t need to pay to sign up to an affiliate program. You just have to find a product you like and find out if the owner of that product is going to pay you for promoting it.

Affiliate marketing is a very lucrative business model, but it requires a lot of effort and dedication to build a successful affiliate site. To diversificate your income sources in case your affiliate sales dry up you can also earn from ads on your site or sell your own products.

Certain states require licenses to participate in affiliate marketing. Refer to the SBA’s reference to state licenses and permits to know more about how this works in your state.

The first step of affiliate marketing “choose a niche” is very important. You need to choose a niche where there are products to promote and which is not to competitive so you can prosper in that niche.

One of the advantages of affiliate marketing is that the start up costs are very low. You only need two things to get started: 1) A domain name which costs $12-13 a year and a hosting plan which can cost like $2 a month.

What is the Best Affiliate Program

Here are the highest paying affiliate programs:

  • Bluehost. It is very popular in the hosting industry
  • WP Engine. It has one of the highest paying affiliate programs, starting at $200+ commissions.
  • CloudWays
  • iPage
  • Siteground
  • Villier
  • Wealthy Affiliate
  • SEMRush
  • LiquidWeb
  • StudioPress
  • Sandals Resorts
  • iTunes Store

There are also some sites which contain a lot of products from different vendors that you can promote. These are called affiliate networks. Here are some of the best affiliate networks:

  • ClickBank
  • ShareAsale
  • Amazon Associates

Amazon is one of the biggest affiliate network where you can find products to promote in any niche. To sign up to the Amazon affiliate program go to their homepage and scroll down to the end of the page where you will find the link “Become an affiliate”, click on that and you will find information on their affiliate program.

To become an Amazon affiliate you need a website address.

The Amazon affiliate program is free to join and you are going to earn 10% of the spendings of your referrals on the Amazon site. The commissions aren’t high for low priced products, but if you sell a high priced product like a camera or a lap top you could earn a decent commission.

People find Amazon extremely convenient.

Some of the most popular niches for affiliate marketing are:

  1. Beauty
  2. Health
  3. Expenssive hobbies
  4. Pets
  5. Fitness
  6. Outdoor survival
  7. Gadgets

The best place to start searching for products to promote are affiliate networks like ClickBank, ShareAsale and Commission Junction. Then you can test products in different niches to find out which works best for you.

How to Be a Successful Affiliate Marketer

Before getting started in affiliate marketing you need to research the products that you plan to promote. The difficult part is building a loyal audience with your high quality content. These days it’s very easy to create a website, the challenge is to create content which sells.

There is not guarantee that you will become successful in affiliate marketing, you could make anywhere from 0 to $25,000 a month. In your first month or second month you would be luck if you made like $5, but with time and while growing your site you are going to be able to make more. Affiliate marketing can be quite profitable but it has to be done the right way.

However, affiliate marketing is not worth the effort for everyone. In fact, I would say that affiliate marketing is not worth for most people as they aren’t’t willing to do the kind of work that it requires.

Wealthy Affiliate is the best place to learn affiliate marketing. It doesn’t promise their affiliates to make money instantly, but this is the reason that their training is legit and works. It teaches affiliates the proper way to achieve long term success.

Building a successful online business takes time. You also shouldn’t join Wealthy Affiliate if you don’t enjoy the community, as it is a big part of it.

There are several aspects of affiliate marketing like search engine optimization, social media marketing, email marketing etc.

To become a successful affiliate marketer you need to find only a handful of successful products to promote, so that your audience is going to trust you that you only recommend them products that work and you don’t just try to sell them. Traffic is important too, which search engine traffic is the most converting, you need to build multiple sources of traffic to your site.

To be successful you also need to continue sly learn the new trends, not only about which products are the most demanded in your niche, but also you need to stay up to date with the changes is the field of online marketing as it is constantly changing.

How Can I Create an Affiliate Marketing Program

Finally, if you have a product that you have created and you need help to sell it, you could use affiliate marketing. Affiliates can apply to your program and help you sell it, while you give them a commission for every sale. To create a successful affiliate marketing program, try to choose a specific niche market, don’t try to sell everything to everyone. You can register your affiliate program on big affiliate networks like ClickBank and ShareAsale. Affiliates can find you there and apply for your affiliate program.

On average affiliate programs pay a 5% to 30% commission, but I have seen affiliate programs which pay from 1% to 200%. There are a number of factors which affect this.

How to Make Money from Porn Sites with Affiliate Marketing

make money from porn

Hello guys!

In this tutorial I am going to show you how to make money from porn sites, a method which has been making me money online for years. They all say that there’s no easy way, but sometimes there is and this is what I have experienced…

Porn is obviously the biggest niche on the Internet and you can make money from porn affiliate programs very easily by using the trick that I am going to show you on this post. I firstly read about this trick online about two years ago and it blew my mind (I have to admit, I didn’t invent it myself).

If you have ever (accidentally) been on a porn site, you have seen some sex games, dating offers and similar products promoted there. They are there because people are making money from them.

I make money from porn in four ways:

I will show you how to make money with each of these methods and I will explain everything in a way so that even if you don’t know anything about internet marketing, you will understand it. In this post I am going to show you the first way I use to make money from porn sites: uploading porn videos and you can learn about the other methods by clicking on the links above.

And of course, if you have any questions you can contact me by commenting at the end of this post and I will help you.

Recently I created a new blog entirely focused on making money from adult content. Here is a link to my new website: AdultMoneyMethods.com

I am focusing on this niche because from my experience in internet marketing, the adult niche is the one which can make you the most money online, easier and quicker.

You will find there all the methods I use in detail.

How to Make Money with Porn Uploading

make money from porn sites

I will share everything about this method with you.

I can tell you that the potential of this method is very high and you can make money with it on your first week..

If you know anything about affiliate marketing you probably know that you can get paid for sending people to a specific product and the same works in the porn industry too.

In a few words, this method consists on directing porn site visitors to cam sites where they will pay to watch cam girls.

Cam sites will give you a commission for each visitor you bring them or a commission as percentage to the money that the visitor will spend on models.

But how to send the visitors from free porn sites to cam sites?

Answer: upload videos on porn sites and write in the title or description of the videos something like this:

“for more videos like this click here (your affiliate link)”

“if you want more from this girl, click here (your affiliate link)” or

cut the video and write “for part 2 of this video click here (your affiliate link)”

So you will be promoting cam sites and earning commissions.

You will upload the videos on porn sites once and the videos will be there for people to click so people will register on these sites without your further efforts.

Cam sites pay you money when you send them new horny guys who are willing to watch cam girls and pay them money.

One of these websites, which I am currently promoting is Chaturbate, it pays you $1 for a new visitor who creates a free account there and 20% of the money that your referral pays to camgirls.

So, you have to create a chaturbate account and get your affiliate link.

Create a Chaturbate account

After you create your account, click on Earn free tokens, then on the link of the affiliate program and then click on Linking Codes and choose the offer that you want to promote.

Scroll down and go to the section:

Revshare: 20% of Money Spent

and choose the first option, Best converting tour.

chaturbate referral link

Buy a Hosting and a Domain

Now you have to buy a domain and hosting so that you can redirect your affiliate link to your domain. This will cost you $40.

There are a lot of hosting companies but they don’t support porn links, one that supports them is TMD hosting.

Go to the TMD hosting page and click on Get started. This will direct you to some available hosting plans.

TMD hosting price

If you want to create only one porn site, I would recommend the Starter option, it offers the same features just that you can only create one site with it. If later you want to create another you can upgrade it.

TMDhosting price

When you buy this hosting you get a domain for free.

After you choose your plan and click Sign up, you will be directed to choosing the domain name. The domain name has to be something related to “sex” or “webcam”, be creative in choosing one. For best results choose a domain related to a porn niche like interracial porn, bdsm, webcam porn and niche topics like these.

After choosing your domain you will have to fill some payment options and you can choose between a 1 month, 12 months and 24 months plan.

You will have to fill your billing information (you can pay with paypal) and you can choose between some additional options for your hosting which will cost you more, but in fact you don’t need them, so don’t choose them.

So uncheck them, if you will need to buy any of them you can buy them later.

If you have any questions up to this point about this tutorial don’t hesitate to ask them in the comments section. You can buy the TMD hosting here.

After this ask the TMD hosting support to redirect your affiliate link from chaturbate to your domain. They will do it in just a few minutes.

Now … Get to Work with This Method

Now, what you will do is finding porn videos without logos of any company or website (trademarks or watermarkes), download them and upload them to other porn sites, putting your domain name in the title.

You can find such videos on YouPorn, xvideos, xhamster etc.

Choose videos related to the niche of your domain.

Before uploading the video to a porn site, you can cut it with Windows Movie Maker and then write in the title something like “for part 2 go to yourdomain.com”.

This makes people think that they will find part two of the video if they click on your domain.


Step 1: Buy a hosting and a domain and re-direct the domain to your affiliate link (my domain is this: amateurcams666.com) you can check and see how this URL re-directs you to chaturbate)

STEP 2: download videos without trademarks or watermarks from porn sites like for example youporn (and this is very important*: WITHOUT TRADEMARKS, which means logos of different sites)
You can cut them in the middle using some programs for this, or just movie maker can do this. This will make people want to see the end of the video so more prone to clicking your domain.

STEP 3: Download videos to other porn sites (like xvideos – one of the biggest) and put in the title something like “Interratial threesome – watch part 2 on yourdomain.com”

People will click your domain which is re-directed to your affiliate link and you will make money for bringing visitors to chaturbate

If you don’t know how to re-direct a link you can ask the support of the hosting company. They will do it for you.

And that’s all! Do you have any questions about this method? Ask them in the comments section and I will hep you get started and make money with this method.
