What is Affiliate Marketing?
What is the scope of an affiliate marketer and is it a skill?
Well, first let’s address the question what is an affiliate marketer?
A persona that is authorized to promote a product for a company for a commission.
The scope of what that affiliate may have do to promote that produce is didactic.
Many marketers work with social media to promote their products.
- This can be achieved with paid or organic traffic.
- Some are content creators.
- Forums and blogs are used to write in long form to promote software’s and other digital produces.
- An affiliate may have a video channel like Tik Tok, YouTube or an audio pod cast such as Spotify.
There are so many ways to promote.
the skill set evident when the marketer is successful to monetize the product.
Also, They would have to build up a big enough audience to sustain the business and to make a living from the promotions.
I read an article from tilt the said that the average content entrepreneur on YouTube earns about 100k a year.
I think you would have some skill to produce 100k.
But let’s talk more about the skill set.
The skill set is the hidden part of affiliate marketing.
More affiliate does not want to reveal the learning curve and the technical development the average person will have to endure to be successful.
Learning to navigate all the software’s that maybe needed.
An affiliate will also have to be a video and audio specialist.
- Video editing
- graphic designing,
- working free and paid ads.
By the time a person learns how to do all these things and yield a profit, the marketer may be good enough and know enough to have their own social media marketing agency.
And there is where the big buck is.
So yes, it takes not only skill but talent to pull it all off.
