Company like Amazon and other company who offer physical product such as electronic, mobile phones, etc, offers commission for their affiliate about 7 - 15% commissions, reason being this type business have very low margin in profits so they can only give small portion of that profit for commission. So, Affiliate Marketing is a business where we make money as an affiliate of another company where we get percentage of their profits.

Step Three: Drive targeted traffics to your website, Sales can only happen when people visiting your website and find out about your products or offers after that Affiliate marketer profit from the commission of that sales. First two steps are necessary but this step is crucial, without this all the other effort is useless. How to drive traffics to your website? There are several option to drive traffics:
