Sometimes we forget about this fruitful niche for affiliate marketers – Education!
While results may not immediately compare to other niches of affiliate marketing, nowadays online learning and autodidacticism have become a much larger industry than ever before. Here are some ways to tap this market and why it could prove to be so fruitful.
Why Are People Choosing Online Learning?
Following the COVID-19 pandemic and the subsequent shift to remote working, people are increasingly interested in online education, in order to develop the skills required to navigate today’s constantly evolving work environment. However, the pandemic only contributed to a fast-changing world, where the rate of technological advancement was already exponentially increasing.
Progress in the AI and automation fields has caused somewhat of a disruption to traditional labor markets as we have known them. This has brought about structural change as well which in turn can create a sense of uncertainty for many who aren’t sure what their future looks like in this evolving landscape.
