Become a Business Affiliate

Most businesses today need customers and they are willing to pay you to bring these customers to purchase their products. As an affiliate, your job is to drive traffic to those business products and have the customers purchase the products.

There are two levels of an affiliate as per my stands, local affiliate, and international affiliate. If you don’t want to spend a dime online, then you ought to start the local affiliate since that’s the simple and ad-free way of making money online today.

With the local affiliate, you’ll need to figure out which product is in high demand in your locality and also find out where you can easily get those products to make them easily accessible by the general public within your community. In this case, you can either strike a deal with the producer/bulk seller of such a product, or you’ll have to add a profit margin to the product once it gets to the general public.

I used to do this type of affiliate during my undergrad studies and still doing the same to date. Here, I help people to easily get what they are in need of for a commission. Most People from my local community don’t know much about online businesses, so whenever they need to purchase something online, they depend on me.

As a business-oriented person, and someone whose goal is to make a profit from his online business, I always charge them an extra amount for that. In most cases, I do negotiate with the producer/seller of that product for a price reduction. So in the end, I end up getting some profit from the deal without extra cost to the third party.

You can also do the same. Most online shops in ghana have affiliate offers. You can signup with them and begin promoting their products for a commission. Jumia Ghana today is the leading online shops and the good thing is that they have this affiliate program that anyone can signup for a commission. I have a friend who is making hundreds of cedis from the Jumia affiliate.
