is one of the oldest form of digital marketing, where you basically promote a product and then a user purchase the product. You get a commission. And, this is one model that
has been highly utilized by bloggers, YouTubers,
podcaster, to make a living. I’m a sole example of doing
this from last 10 years. Thing is, back when I started ShoutMeLoud, I discovered something
called affiliate marketing. I can actually talk about certain product, when people buy this product, I get commission out of it. And I was like, “Okay, this is something “that the world should know.” And that’s where
ShoutMeLoud started talking about affiliate marketing. Now I’m bringing everything on YouTube so that you also get to learn
about affiliate marketing. Now, let’s understand affiliate marketing with one basic example. So, what happens when you’re looking for a new flat to rent or to buy? You go to a property dealer
or a real estate agent. Now, this real estate
agent shows you a lot of properties, a lot of flats, and when you pick one, when
you come from that well, “This is the flat I’m gonna buy,” then that’s where they get commission. Now this is the offline model of affiliate of the commission. Now bring the same model online and that is what affiliate marketing is. Now the benefit is, since
online, in marketing, you are not limited to a particular space. If you have internet and laptop, you can start using affiliate
marketing to build an empire. Now, here are a few things
that you should know. Affiliate marketing is free to join for anyone and everyone. It doesn’t matter which
part of world you are from. What is your current situation, if you are 12-year-old or

That could be a blog. That could be a YouTube channel. That could be a podcast. You can also use PPC, email marketing, many other methods, which we will discuss in the upcoming videos. And now, when a user make a purchase by clicking on your affiliate link, you basically earn a commission. How cool is that? Well, this is the one model if you have never heard of or if you heard you are sitting at the
sideline thinking like, “Should I be using
affiliate marketing or not?” Well, my friend, you should be. And in the upcoming part of this video, I’ll actually help you
