Every other online expert swears by affiliate marketing when it comes to making money online. It is very interesting and looks simple but not all succeed.

While browsing YouTube videos, I came across an interview with Ankur Aggarwal that had garnered 997k views. His journey to success was very interesting and I eventually ended up seeing more of his videos.

Ankur Aggarwal 


Ankur Aggarwal has more than seven years of experience and he runs almost 11 websites that generates revenue from several affiliate networks. He also does “sponsored reviews” and charges anywhere between 10-20 grands. In one of his YouTube videos, he tells us that affiliate marketing is the best way to earn income online and in that Amazon.in is the best affiliate network. 

What is affiliate marketing

If you are just starting, it is very essential for you to know “What is affiliate marketing.” The top results in the Google search page will give you so much information for you to start generating hell lot of ideas.

For quick understanding, “affiliate marketing” is a process through which you will earn money by promoting other’s products or services.

Let’s assume you have niche blog about smartphones. In one of your posts, you place an affiliate link to smart phones section in the Amazon.in website. If I click on the post in your blog and click on the affiliate link that directs me to Amazon.in where I make a purchase, you will get a small commission for the purchases I made. Let’s assume I purchase one phone, one power bank, and a phone cover, you will get commission for all these three items.

There are millions of products listed on the Amazon website which you can promote in you blog.

Qualification to be Affiliate Marketer

You do not require any special qualification or technical skills to learn and become an affiliate marketer. All you need is desktop or a laptop and an internet connection. Of course, there is a lot to learn about affiliate marketing which you will eventually do.

Affiliate Networks

There are several affiliate networks world over and there are in good numbers in India too. For example, Amazon Associates, MakeMyTrip, Bigrock Affiliates etc.

Popular Affiliate Network

It is not only Ankur Aggarwal but several affiliate marketing gurus suggest Amazon.in (Amazon Associate) as the best affiliate marketing network to start with.

How to start affiliate marketing?

The best way to start affiliate marketing is to start a blog about your favorite niche. You will not make money on the “day one” though. You will have to spend quite a lot of time scaling up your blog until you get substantial visitors. I would suggest to work on your blog for at least 8 months before you dive into affiliate marketing.

Setting up a blog is easy as creating an email ID, you can complete it within 15-20 minutes. If you are brand new to blogging, you may follow the label “How to start a blog” that may guide you through the process.

If you have good number of followers on Instagram or your YouTube channel, you can place “Amazon affiliate link” there too and start earning money.

Alternate revenue

While you make money through affiliate marketing, you will also get opportunity to generate income through sponsored post. Some large companies may approach you for promotional services.

I hope you are convinced about being an affiliate marketer.
