Affiliation with companies
When your website is ready*, I mean, when your website has some content on it, you are ready to apply for affiliation with a company of your own choice.
*nb. a website is never truly ready, you can always add something new 🙂
A lot of people choose to be an affiliate of Amazon, but there are millions of other alternatives to approach.
E.g. When you type in your “product + affiliate” you get thousands of results. And you can filter out the best paying, or the best company for the environment by reading their terms, conditions and company ideals etc.
When a sale takes place between the customer and the web shop you are promoting products of on your website, you get paid. And the payments can vary enormously. From 2% to over 50% per sale. So it is of great importance to check the fees and terms carefully before you apply for affiliation.
