A referral program is a kind of contract between the seller and partners, concluded with the aim of selling a product or service. It enables the seller to reduce the cost of attracting the final buyer, and the partner to earn his percentage of income from the sale of goods or services.
Affiliate programs can be single-level, when you only earn interest on a purchase made by your attracted person (referral). And maybe multi-level.
For example, with a two-level scheme, you can earn not only a percentage of the purchases of goods or services by your visitors, but also receive a percentage of the income of those users who also became partners of this program by clicking on your referral link. Those. in this case, you also earn by attracting new referrals. Sometimes it is possible to earn on the referrals of your referrals (third level), and so on. Below I will give an example of a ten-level affiliate program.
In order to start earning money on any referral program, it is usually enough to register in it and receive a special referral link, including a unique identifier, which will determine that the visitor came precisely thanks to your efforts, and not directly.
You can place the reflink wherever you want. At least on your site in the form of a hyperlink or in the form of a colorful banner (either in specially written for this case or simply thematic articles), at least in the signature on the forum, at least in the contextual advertisement. The main thing is to click on it or on the banner and it would bring new visitors to the seller’s resource who would potentially be interested in his product or service.
For example, many exchanges for webmasters have their own affiliate programs, designed to attract new users (your potential referrals, where you can earn money). Thus, they may not be spent on advertising at all, because you will do this in an effort to become a referral. The network has a catalog of partner programs Actualtraffic.ru, where you can pick up something suitable to the theme of your resource:
After you register in any of these exchanges or affiliate programs of a different kind, you will be able to get a refka with which you will begin to recruit, for example, visitors to your own site. This is called becoming a referral. If one of your visitors becomes your referral, then you can earn interest on his total income on the exchange.
