NextGen entrepreneurs running a thriving business know there’s always more they can do to make the business grow. One way of taking things to the next level is by finding an alternate stream of income. That doesn’t mean starting a second business, but finding ways to complement and grow the business you have by offering more value to your customers and followers.
Affiliate marketing is an online sales tactic that lets a product owner increase sales by allowing others targeting the same audience — ‘affiliates’ — to earn a commission by recommending the product to others. At the same time, it makes it possible for affiliates to earn money on product sales without creating products of their own.
Future of affiliate marketing in India
Taking into account all the statistics and the dependency of the market on web, experts have shown not only the affiliate marketing trends for 2021, but also the potential of the industry. It is safe to say that affiliate marketing is still profitable in 2021 and will continue to be profitable in future.
Affiliate marketing is low risk. Since there’s no cost to join affiliate programs, you can start making money with an established affiliate product or service without any upfront investment. Affiliate marketing also can generate relatively passive income through commission — the ideal money-making scenario. Though initially you’ll have to invest time creating traffic sources, your affiliate links can continue to deliver a steady pay check.
