What are affiliates, how you can apply them to grow your business, and how you can help other businesses by being an affiliate for them? Join Janine in this episode to learn some simple and practical tips to utilize them effectively!

What are Affiliates?

Most companies have affiliate programs set up for business owners and consumers to share their products. The company will give you a code that you can share with your network and from the sales you made, you will receive a percentage or commission.

Why are these affiliates profitable to your business? Why would a business give you a commission? Why should your business utilize it? Simply because it’s – MONEY. Aside from that, it will give you a chance to help and support other businesses as well.

Referrals are the BEST customers. The more referrals a business gets, the more profit it gains.

Using Affiliates Effectively

Of course, utilizing affiliates is also great for your freelance writing business. How can you do this? Well, it’s easy. You can do a referral system with your clients as an affiliate.

You don’t have to really call it or create a referral program to make it work. Talk to your clients after you’ve done a retainer for them for a while and think about those big projects you’ve accomplished with them in the past years. Try to discuss with them a promotion that you are currently offering.
