Millions of websites toil to win consumer attention, and surge traffic and revenues. In spite of the traffic not being incredible, there are always ways to better the revenue with the current traffic.
A website manages to get some money from the banner ads and display ads, but what about the seamless content on which efforts were put in to work day-in and day-out?
One brilliant method to “employ the content is through affiliate marketing via content monetization”. With content monetization, the words idle until now, can be used to exploit the financial gain of affiliate marketing and turn your website to a money making machine.
In fact, Amazon, one among the fortune 500 companies, ranked second after Apple, gets 40% of its revenue from affiliate marketing channel. Over 900,000 affiliates power the Amazon affiliate program and they earn 4%-25% per sale. And also, big ecommerce companies like Flipkart, which is making headlines lately, invest handsome amounts in affiliate marketing – Flipkart gives 15% affiliate fee for referring people to their website.
