Affiliate marketing is a fantastic way to increase sales on a cost per sale or lead basis. Many companies enjoy a hefty 10-30% of sales and a 12:1 return on ad spend ratio. This course helps you get over the initial hump to grasp the basics and reprimes the pump for those disappointed by previous efforts. At the conclusion, students will know what it takes to get started and succeed.
Learn why Amazon, Norton, Aflac, Target, ADP, Clarks Botanicals, Blue Apron, Chewy.com, Life Extension, just a few of thousands of name brands, enjoy multi-channel direct response success as well as affiliate partners, such as The Today Show, Business Insider, Buzzfeed, Conde Nast, Ziff Davis and Valpak. But you don’t have to be a Fortune 100 company to enjoy the benefits of affiliate marketing. Even small to mid-sized companies can be successful at it and enjoy the phenomenal return on ad spend.
