Sell Third-parties' Products/Services
Selling third-party's products on your own website is even easier than selling your own because you have it all ready to get started! This process of selling other's products is called affiliation or referral.
Just affiliate with a company that you like and refer your site visitors to its products. If your visitors like the products, they will buy them and you will get commissions or other benefits for referring. Thus through your website, without any effort, you will see your revenues accumulating.
SiteGround hosting service is an excellent example of how you can do that. As you already use our service and you know its advantages, you may competently recommend it to your site visitors by placing a referral banner on your website. In return, for every sale you help us make, SiteGround adds months of free hosting to your account.
How to sell "third-party products"?
It's very simple! Most companies that sell online have special Affiliate or Referral programs, which guarantee you commissions for sending them new customers and provide you with "advertising materials", or referral banners. To get started, just place a referral banner or link of your affiliate company on your website so that your site visitors learn about that company.
SiteGround also offers you such Affiliate and Referral programs. Through these programs, you get special referral banners. For every client who signs up for an account through them you may get 20% of each sale or free months of hosting services.
