Yes, but if you want to do international marketing with a team, all of them will be needed. In the following discussion I will gradually discuss the points in detail.

What are the types of affiliate marketing?

3 Types of Affiliate Marketing:

  1. Unattached Affiliate Marketing
  2. Related Affiliate Marketing
  3. Involved Affiliate Marketing

 Unattached Affiliate Marketing

Unattached Affiliate Marketing is the basic pay-per-click affiliate marketing system where you are not affiliated with the product you are promoting. There will also be no connection between you and the customer. All you do is publish affiliate link rich ads through Google Adwords, Facebook and other media. You will earn a commission against the number of products that are sold by clicking on your ad link. 

Related Affiliate Marketing

Related Affiliate Marketing involves creating affiliate links for products related to your site on your online platform such as blogs, podcasts, videos or social media. But those are products that you may not have actually used yourself.

 Involved Affiliate Marketing

Involved Affiliate Marketing is to recommend a product or service that you have actually used yourself and not in a banner ad.

Affiliate Marketing Nice

Before selecting the affiliate niche or content we need to select the type of product. Product can be of two types such as - Physical Product and Digital Product;

1. Physical Product | Physical Product

A physical product refers to something that we can touch, hold, that has a height or shape. For example – electrical products, beauty products, fashion products.

2. Digital products Digital Product

A digital product is a product that cannot be touched or held, which has no physical existence. You certainly can't smell an e-book, you can't see a website theme.

1) Text Message Marketing

Various product offers are usually promoted through message marketing. But it is possible to send a message with a link with a very short description about any product.

Text message marketing needs to collect numbers. There are various ways to collect numbers, but it takes time. Can be purchased for quick marketing.

2) Email Marketing

Mail marketing is one of the most popular marketing techniques. Email marketing is also more convenient than messages. The details about the product can be sent to the customer by mail.

For mail like message marketing you need to collect the mail addresses of your target customers. In this case also the mail address can be bought.

3) Social Media Marketing

If you have a big page or group on Facebook , you can easily reach a lot of people with your product link. Besides , affiliate marketing is also possible through social media such as Instagram , Quora, Telegram , Pinterest, Twitter , etc.

Big stars earn crores of rupees using this social media. In their language that is called influence.

4) Affiliate marketing on the website

The best way is to write product reviews and publish them on the website. Then you don't have to post pictures every day like on social media or answer client's questions.

Add affiliate links to products with your review for purchase. One day you will just struggle to write a nice review of the product. Remember while writing, the better you can present, the more interested the buyer will be in buying the item.

But before starting work on the website, you must acquire extensive knowledge about SEO . If you don't know about SEO, you won't rank your website, and if you don't rank, you won't get visitors, that is, your product won't reach customers.

5) YouTube Affiliate Marketing

Similar to the website, YouTube can do the same, but the presentation is different. Getting success on YouTube requires subscribers as well as creating good videos and getting more views . Add your affiliate link to the video in the description box.
