What is Affiliate Marketing?

Before you get started, you need to understand affiliate marketing. Basically, there are many companies that have products for sale and they are willing to pay their affiliate (you) a commission on any sales that you make.

Setting up a site as an affiliate is easy. You’ll need a web site, like this one, which is free and easy though

Next you find the product(s) that you want to promote. You sign up and put the affiliate product links on your site. When your reader clicks through on the link and buys the product, you make money.

Why do many people get started with affiliate marketing? There are many reasons. The primary reason for most people is the money potential. Next is the temptation to quit your day job and work from home, setting up your own hours and schedule.

Setting up a web based business can be very involved. You need to have a web design, a product, a way to get payment, ship the product, etc. A much easier way to work from home is affiliate marketing.

But a list of links of products won’t make you a lot of money. Web surfers find lists of ads a big turn off. So how do you keep the surfer on your site? Content! You need to provide interesting content that relates to the basic topic of your site….as I’m doing with posts on affiliate marketing.

If you can’t write interesting content, there are many services that will do it for you at a very reasonable price. Once you’ve got the content, put your hyperlinks throughout it. While there is no guarantee that affiliate marketing will make you money, you can put the odds in your favor with an interesting site and quality content.
