Become a Marketing Celebrity.
Celebrities create an album or movie and keep collecting royalties whenever a song or film is publicly played. If they are lucky this can go on all their lives and beyond. Wouldn't it be great if you could do that too, collecting royalties with a commission agreement repeatedly?
In Marketing - You Can!
Most marketing techniques create one touch point with the customer. When that customer buys the product: the marketing effort is rewarded with a sale.
Either a merchant can fund their own marketing efforts through that income or, if they outsource the marketing campaign, an external marketer (affiliate or publisher) gets paid a commission as a percentage of that sale. This is frequently done by a commission agreement via merchant's marketing affiliate programs.
One of the largest affiliate programs is Amazon's. Pretty much all banners, images and links that promote Amazon products across the web are Amazon affiliate links where third party webmasters earn commissions for the sales they generate.
You could be that affiliate and publish an affiliate URL to additional, complimenting products on your website from many merchants, not just Amazon. Say: you link to another merchant's website to offer your customers add-on products and that merchant pays out a commission per sale of 20% for instance.
But Only Once.
With the marketing technique of multi level marketing, the marketing effort can get rewarded more than once: when, through this one marketing effort, another sale is generated. In which case the marketer gets a second, smaller sales commission.
Your website sells home made cakes.
Because your website visitors are also interested in nice tableware you could refer them to another website through an affiliate link. Whenever anyone lands at that tableware website through your link and buys something: you are rewarded 20% of that sale (your sales commission).
Rather than just earning one direct sales commission from that one sale, you could hand over your affiliate link to other website owners who want to send their website visitors to that tableware website as well.
Since they are related to your affiliate link you will earn 7% of their sales. While they will collect their righteous 20% sales commission. The additional 7% are paid by the tableware merchant too.
This is called a downline. The beauty: others will do the leg work for your downline commission.
From anyone who uses your affiliate link in their marketing effort for tableware sales, you will earn an additional 7% sales commission. More good news: you can grow that network and it grows on its own.
