Affiliate FAQ

Take a look at some of the most Frequently Asked Questions by affiliates before they begin in affiliate marketing. If you are already a Linkwise Affiliate, you can find more specific questions and answers about the Linkwise platform, payments etc, within the affiliate interface.


How can I make money from Affiliate Marketing?

If you can send users to an advertiser’s website by placing a banner on your own website or writing an article containing text links, posting an update on your social media profile etc. then you can become an Affiliate! If the users you sent then convert to actions like sales or registrations then you will receive commission for these actions.

Example: An online travel agent offers 5% commission for every air ticket booking that takes place on their website. You own a travel forum and place banners of that travel agent on your forum. For every user that clicks on the banners and then books an air ticket, you will receive a 5% commission on the value of the ticket the user booked!
