What is Affiliate Marketing & How Can You Get Involved?

‘What on earth is affiliate marketing?’ was, perhaps, our first question when Dad first started talking to us about SFM and this digital nomad life. New people coming to our website, or people that are new to the industry may be a bit in the dark about it and so we thought it was time to shed some light and answer ‘what is affiliate marketing’.


Generating a passive income is the stuff of dreams for most people, making money while you sleep, all of that – and as Neil Patel says, ‘for 99% of people, affiliate marketing is how they get started’.


So to answer your question, ‘what is affiliate marketing’ in the most simple of ways, it’s effectively selling someone else’s product or service, often through a network or using affiliate links, where you are able to earn commission if people buy through you and/or your links.



“Affiliate marketing is the process of earning a commission by promoting other people’s (or company’s) products. You find a product you like, promote it to others and earn a piece of the profit for each sale that you make.”  – Pat Flynn



So that’s the basics, and if you want to find out more in depth stuff about Affiliate Marketing then click here where Dad can tell you a bit more – he’s been in the industry for a lot longer so can probably better explain!


But how do YOU get involved?


Well, you can do it the same way we did, with SFM. That’s the Six Figure Mentors.

Obviously Dad was aware of these types of set ups having worked in Marketing for 30 odd years, but this was the most effective and very different from the rest and it really stood out to him. So much so we’re still working with them now, almost 6 years later.
