Hey guys welcome to today’s. Affiliate Network tutorial. We’re gonna go through a company called a win. A win is an affiliate network. It has over thirteen thousand different advertisers on it. There’s, a hundred thousand publishers which publishers are basically affiliate partners, and last year they generated one hundred and forty-eight million in sales.
So we’re gonna walk through this tool, go through how to get signed up, how to search for your different advertisers, how to use their different tools on your website and how to see how much you earned afterwards.
So Before we jump right in on how to get signed up, we’re, going to just take a little minute to talk about what is affiliate marketing. So affiliate marketing is basically where companies create a platform in which you can advertise their products and services on your website and in some cases, on your social media accounts and for advertising their products.
If you drive traffic to their websites and that traffic ends up making purchases, then that you should give you a commission off of it. Affiliate marketing usually costs nothing to sign up. So it’s. Free it’s, one of the most affordable businesses.
You can start because there is zero cost. All you need to do is have a website. As long as you have a website, then you’re good to go. You can start using different affiliate networks and affiliate programs.
This one we’re walking through as an affiliate network. The only difference between an affiliate network and an affiliate program is simply that an affiliate network houses, hundreds or, in this case 13,000 different affiliate programs within it.
Some companies choose to have their own affiliate program on a separate website, but a lot of us prefer to use affiliate networks, because then you only have to sign up one time and then you get access to all of their advertisers.
So and again this one you get 13 thousand different advertisers, or these are also affiliate programs, basically to get started. Let’s, go ahead and sign up you don’t need to select. If you’re, an advertiser or a publisher, all you have to do is hit the sign up in the top right and it’s automatically going to assume that you are a publisher.
There are four different steps to the signup process. With a win, the first is your account set up here. You’ll just need the basic information, including your company name, your personal person, last name, your email address and then the password you want to use for your account.
Then click Next. The second step is for your promotional type. This is where you’ll enter in your primary region and then how are you going to promote the products? So, for example, if you’re, going to be using your blog or your social media site, you’d, select, blogger and social content.
If you’re going to use different ones, you can always scroll through these. Like let’s, say, for example, you want to use social traffic or email for our lead generation, so you can also do that, but you do need to make sure that you set one of them as a primary.
If you do not click the radio button for at least one of the ones that you selected to set as primary, when you click Next, it will say please select primary promotion type clicking the radio button will allow you to move on to the next step.
The third step is the promotional space. This is where you have to write a description about who you’re, going to promote the products to you’ll, give the demographics make it a title. Basically, you can do this as your company name.
The demographics will be basically who you’re, going to advertise the products to and a description about your website. The sector’s at the bottom. You have to select what what sector of the world you want to market these to.
So, if you’re under travel, you’re gonna say: are we doing Airlines? Are we doing car rentals? Are we doing trains, hotels, etc? Once you’ve selected, the different sectors that pertain to your niche, then click on the next step.

So if you’re going to apply for them about 92 % of people who apply for Eid, reims gets approved and then the EPC is the earnings per click. And what this is is the earnings per 100 people that click on your affiliate link on average.
