What if you could make money at any time, from anywhere — even while you sleep?  That’s the idea behind affiliate marketing. Referral programs, affiliate, and influencer marketing are all one and the same. The main idea is to get people to sign up to a service, buy a product, or like a page and earn money in return. 

So how can you get in on the action? In this article, you’ll learn all about affiliate marketing and Melio’s new program that can make you some extra cash. If you already know what affiliate marketing is, skip to the bottom to get the details of how much money you can make.

What’s affiliate marketing?

Affiliate marketing has been around for the last 3 decades. It first appeared in the 90s, and since then, it has completely changed the face of business as we know it. Ordinary people were suddenly able to earn thousands of dollars a month in commission and help businesses make more profit. 

How does it work? Anyone can refer a service or product by sharing it on a podcast, blog, social media or website. By referring the service, they become affiliates and earn a commission each time someone makes a purchase via the unique link associated with their recommendation.
