Introduction to Affiliate Marketing

Today we want to explain the basis of the Sigma Affiliate Program, otherwise known as Affiliate Marketing. If you are not familiar with Affiliate Marketing, we are going to explain what it is, how it works, and how it benefits you as a Sigma Affiliate.

What is Affiliate Marketing?

Affiliate marketing is a performance based marketing strategy where affiliates promote their merchant’s products through their own devices and receive compensation from every sale made.  The three most common payment arrangements are: pay-per-sale, pay-per-lead, and pay-per-click.

Sigma utilizes the pay-per-sale method, where the affiliate receives 10% commission for every sale generated by a new customer through their affiliate link.

How does Affiliate Marketing work?

Once you are signed up for the affiliate program, you will receive a unique click number to correspond with a Sigma website link. This click number is very important, as it is the only way to track a sale made through your efforts. When you post your link to a YouTube video, blog post, tweet, etc., anyone who clicks on it will be re-directed to the Sigma website. From there, if the viewer decides to purchase product, you will receive 10% commission from the order they place. The amount of commission made solely depends on the affiliate and how they choose to promote Sigma and their products. Whether it is through a banner advertisement, product review, or giveaway, it is up to the affiliate to decide which marketing strategy works best for their viewers.

How does Affiliate Marketing benefit you?

Affiliate Marketing is a great tool for bloggers and YouTubers to use and is very easy and flexible to work with. There are no requirements or restrictions about how often or how much you talk about Sigma, but generally you will earn more income from the program the more you promote it. As an affiliate, you are Sigma’s sales force, and we depend on you to get the word out about our products! In return, we are more than happy to compensate you through monthly commissions and cash bonuses.

The Sigma Affiliate Program is free and easy to sign-up. If you are not an affiliate yet, you can learn all about all the program details on our website, or get tips and updates here on our blog. And, of course, we are here to answer any questions you may have about affiliate marketing, the program, or Sigma in general.  Hopefully this helps you understand affiliate marketing and your role as an affiliate a little better!
