Affiliate marketing involves selling other people's stuff. In the internet world, one of the easiest ways you can make money in Nigeria is by just selling other people's stuff such as product or service.
There is a growing crop of Affiliate marketers in Nigeria although I would not say that all of them make good income from just affiliate marketing but if you are really thinking about doing this sort of business in Nigeria, don't think about signing up with companies like Clickbank because they mostly pay by paypal and probably work with only us residents. If you are going to delve into affiliate marketing as a Nigerian resident, you should look for merchants that offer direct payments to Nigeria by offering payment options that are really within your reach such as Alertpay, bank wires, western union or any other form of payment that works in the country.

Ok, about Clickbank, I am actually saying this from experience as I have done affiliate marketing with Clickbank and found out that it wasn't really worth it. The worst thing was that after slaving for making sales for clickbank, my account was being charged monthly with hidden feeds until my money was entirely depleted from the account and this is despite that fact that I spent money on online advertising to make sales. That's a story for another day. There are a lot of affiliate programs you can partake that can send your payments directly to Nigeria so you don't need to be lurking around those ones that only pay through Paypal or US bank account.

Now how do you make money from affiliate marketing?
Well it is just like normal marketing. You make money when you help make a sale for your employer who in this case is the merchant. The money you earn is what we refer to as commission. So the more sales you are able to bring, the more money you are able to make.
A good example of an affiliate program you can do is with Amazon offers what we call associate program and this allows affiliates who have signed up to earn a commission from driving sales.

As an online affiliate marketer, you can make as much as 10% from Amazon's affilate program and all you need to do is bring in traffic. This simply means that assuming you refer a buyer to purchase an item worth $500 and he buys, you automatically will get credited $50 for that sale. The amount your merchant will pay you are a marketer is normally indicated in the affiliate agreement. Some pay based on rates while some pay you based on a fixed price.
There are a lot of other online markets where you can sign up as an affiliate such apart from just consumer stores. You can deal with web hosting firms, domain registration companies, mp3 download sites, social membership sites and so on.

Most people who do online affiliate marketing focus on goods that are sold online, that is, intangible items like mp3s, ringtones, pictures, membership sites and so on. These are items that sell fast and where the likelihood of returns is less likely since the items are delivered instantly.

How to get started as an affiliate marketer in Nigeria
- Look for an a website that offers affiliate program for online items
- Sign up as an affiliate and get your affiliate code or link.
- Ensure that you can receive payments with a Nigerian address
- Write and submit a lot of articles or reviews about their product and include your affiliate link
- Check your affiliate account regularly to see your stats and best performing items.
- Keep driving traffic to your affiliate link with articles on free sites or from your site.
- The more traffic your drive, the higher your potential for making more money

I have seen that people who are successful amazon affiliates tend to set up a website dedicated to a particular product and write hundreds of reviews on just that product to make money.

Tip: Articles are practically the best way to keep driving traffic for the long term but you can also use internet advertising to do so only that it may not guarantee sales.
