Before elaborating on how our google digital marketing course can help,let me tell in brief about referral marketing and affiliate marketing.
What is referral marketing?
In referral marketing, we refer a client to a company. The company will pay a commission for each client you refer to. The more number of clients you refer to the more amount of commission you get. There are different referral programs with different strategies. I have joined 2 referral programs:
1. I refer a client to a digital marketing company and for each client, I refer to I get a commission.
2. I have joined the referral program of propeller ads(a kind of ad network which I have used to monetize my blog). Say I tell about this referral program to one publisher. The publisher joins propeller ads through my referral link. Then I shall get 5% of the amount earned by the publisher for displaying various propeller ads on his blog.
Or say I have one friend x(who is neither a publisher nor an advertiser), and I tell about my referral program to this friend x. Friend x joins the referral program through my referral link. Then my friend x tells about this ad network to 5 persons who have a blog of their own. These five people join propeller ads through my friend x’s referral link; my friend earns 5 percent of the amount earned by each publisher from propeller ads, and I earn 5 % of the total amount earned by my friend.
Referral marketing, may or may not comprise of referral links. In order to earn from the referral program, it is necessary to bring your referral link in front of the right target audience.
What is affiliate marketing?
In affiliate marketing, you promote third party products and earn a certain commission once a sale is made.
Once someone clicks on your affiliate link and purchases a product then you earn a commission.
In both referral marketing and affiliate marketing, the more number of clients you get, the more amount of commission you earn. So, for doing referral marketing/affiliate marketing effectively, two things are of prime importance.
(a)Referring to a large number of prospective clients to increase your chances to earn a decent commission.
(b)How to get these large number of clients

Who is the target audience?
Note that the target audience for a particular company with an affiliate program/referral program comprises of 2 people:
(a)To whom the services/products provided by the company will prove to be useful.
(b)People who are interested in joining the affiliate program/referral program of the company and will promote the company’s products to earn a commission.

What is a blog?learn from our google digital marketing course
Before starting with affiliate marketing/referral marketing, it is necessary to understand what is a blog. You may also read my article on “how to make money blogging“.
Firstly, you need to find your niche and write down articles of 1000 to 2000 words to constitute a blog. Then to do affiliate marketing/referral marketing you have to tie up with companies that sell products related to your niche.
You can write an article elaborating on product functionality and the benefits of using the product. Then at the end of the article, put your affiliate link created by the company for you. If people click on this link and buy the product from the company, then you will get a commission.
Another way to do affiliate marketing is just to write an article on a particular topic e.g. I am writing an article on affiliate marketing. So I can mention affiliate links to sell online courses on affiliate marketing by a particular training institute. Whereas in referral marketing the company may or may not provide you with a referral link. In case the company does provide you with a referral link, then the best way to promote such referral links is:
- blog posts that contain the referral link,
- personalized emails that contain the referral link,
- WhatsApp posts,
- Messenger posts that contain the referral link.
Remember that at times, people may just read your articles and not buy anything from you. So, you can monetize your blog with ad networks that have no minimum traffic requirements.
Propellerads is one such ad network. As your traffic grows to a minimum of 100 visitors per day, you can then sign up for Google Adsense. Yes, with a gradual increase in traffic to your website, you can monetize your websites with multiple ad networks.
