With influencers scouring Instagram and Facebook for new opportunities to become affiliates, is there a better and different way to earn additional income? Becoming an Affiliate with a brand typically involves having a certain amount of followers on one of the social channels. There is also usually a requirement to have a blog or website in order to share the custom URLs for the affiliate brand. Depending on the affiliate program, you might instantly be accepted or might have to wait for your application to be reviewed and then accepted.
How much can you earn as an affiliate?
As an affiliate for a brand, they set the amount you can earn per purchase. It can be as low as 5% or as high as 30%. Since the brands set all of the requirements, they can also at any time change the percentages or cancel the program all together. As an affiliate – you can only control how much referrals you send their way, and cannot work harder for any special bonuses.
