What is Affiliate marketing?

A simple question and here is a simple answer, it means you need to promote someone else’s product and when the user purchases something from your promoted links then you will get a commission.

Example of Affiliate commission?

Let’s suppose you have selected Apple iPhone 11. So let’s calculate the earnings you will get if you sell 10 iPhone 11, by the way, Amazon gives a 4% commission on mobiles.

  • iPhone 11 price in India: Rs 68,300
  • 10 iPhone 11 *  Rs 68,300:  Rs 68,3000

Let’s see how much money you will make from Rs 68,3000 * 4 / 100: Rs 27,320
