And who knows, maybe in the future we or SellBiz will introduce our own program and you will be able to help us and also earn money on it.

What is Affiliate Marketing and how it works?

Affiliation is partnership cooperation, it consists in the fact that the seller provides an affiliate link for his partner, who places it on his website, in social media, etc. When a new customer goes through such an affiliate link and makes a purchase, then after verifying this transaction, a commission is paid to the affiliate partner. This is a very beneficial form for both parties, because thanks to this, the Seller can acquire new customers and earn money by selling the product, and on the other hand, such an affiliate partner earns on the basis of sales commission.

How to start with Affiliate program?

You need to start by choosing an affiliate program, it is best to choose a topic that interests you so that you can build valuable content that will translate into results. After selecting a topic, you need to register as an affiliate partner. For this, we need a website or social media account to promote products. After registration, you will be able to choose the products you want to promote and each of them will have its own unique link that you will insert at your place. For the best results, you need to create valuable articles, reviews, guides, or product rankings. Thanks to this, you will attract readers to click on the link and purchase the product. You have to remember that all this also takes time and work to provide results.

Monitor your results

It is worth controlling your results, i.e. website traffic, link clicks and sales. Analyze which materials have the best sales and which have no interest, this will allow you to focus on the products that people want to buy. It is also worth checking which promotion channels are the best, it is possible that there will be more people interested on Facebook than on your website.

Follow the rules of the affiliate program

Familiarize yourself with the rules of the program and remember to comply with them, this will allow you to avoid unnecessary blocking or exclusion from the affiliate program. It is also important to comply with the GDPR and the privacy policy on the website.

Continues Improvement

If you already have an outdated product ranking, it is worth updating it on a regular basis. This also applies to articles and advertisements on the website. A well-maintained website will allow us to attract new partners and increase our profits.

Affiliate Marketing program and SEO

In addition to advertising, it is worth cultivating the positioning of your website for the affiliate program. This is a process that does not work right away, but a well-optimized website will allow you to increase visits to our website and click on the link that will redirect you to the Seller’s website. Make sure you include keywords in your content.


To create an effective affiliate program, it is worth setting a topic and goal in advance. Then we can look for the right affiliate partner and check the cooperation that is most beneficial for us. Even before cooperation, you should read the regulations of a given partner. Also before we start, we need to take care of our privacy policy and GDPR regulations on the site. Once we have taken care of the above things, we can confidently promote the first affiliate products. Remember that results take time, unless you invest in good advertising that will attract customers right away. Try and test a little bit of everything each activity works differently for your industry. Check which activities bring you the most benefits and develop them.
