Affiliate marketing systems - making money as you sleep

Earning money while you’re sleeping or enjoying your vacation - is that possible at all?

Advertising Technologies (AdTech) and Marketing Technologies (MarTech) are gaining momentum right now. One obvious reason for this is the fact that more and more people get to the world wide web every single day. What's more - more and more people rely on online services for work, school, food deliveries, ordering taxis, you name it. Therefore the competition is rising as businesses begin to utilize the tools available on the market. Affiliate marketing systems are an example of such adtech/martech ecosystem. Let's find out why they are so successful.


Basically, affiliate marketing is the idea of a partnership. Think of Google AdWords - this is a grand-scale affiliate marketing for showing ads, where there is someone who needs to present their products (or websites, or services, or anything, really) to the audience and there are publishers, who sign up for the program and place widgets on their websites where the ad content will be shown.

While this can be done via usual partnership (you go to your friend and ask him to display a picture with a link to your website on his blog), affiliate marketing allows to do this on a much larger scale and reach a much wider audience.

As a result, AMS present an opportunity to earn extra cash (or more than just extra cash) to individuals because a growing number of people and companies have a website or blog of their own where ads can be shown and thousands of companies are looking for affiliates to help promote their products and services.


There are many affiliate marketing programs one can join as a publisher as well as an advertiser, but having your own system - once you define your niche - will also bring money because it will be a passive income. You present the platform for people to use and then improve it, working out the features and details to stand out among the competitors.

Even the sky isn’t the limit to the features you can create for the affiliate marketing systems - choose publishers you like as advertiser, choose which ad category you’d like to be shown on your website, track how many clicks did your ad get on a certain website, etc.
