Special Guest Interview with Affiliate Marketing Pro Enelin Toneva

This post features insights from my recent interview with affiliate marketing expert Enelin Toneva, the founder and CEO of the Vivian Agency. Enelin shares her knowledge and expertise, answering common questions and laying out affiliate marketing basics to help you get started on your journey.

What is Affiliate Marketing?

Affiliate marketing is a commission-based partnership where you promote another person or company’s products or services. You use a unique tracking link to lead potential customers to their website. When a customer makes a purchase using your link, you earn a percentage or a flat fee commission.

Why is Choosing the Right Niche Important?

Choosing the right niche is key to targeting the right audience and maximizing your success. For example, a broad lifestyle influencer is less likely to convert sales for a specific health and fitness supplement than a fitness influencer with a smaller but highly relevant follower base.

What Are Affiliate Programs – How Do You Sign Up?

Affiliate programs are partnerships between influencers/content creators and businesses looking to promote their products and services. To streamline the process, you can join affiliate networks like:

These networks allow you to browse, discover, and apply to suitable affiliate programs.

The Importance of Tracking Results

Tracking your progress and results is crucial to knowing what works and what doesn’t. The main things to track are:

  • Affiliate links: Use your links properly to ensure you get credit for every sale.
  • Promo codes: Offer special codes to your audience, giving them an incentive while helping you track results.
