Can anyone give me some help and info about affiliate marketing?

Ok, I want to be able to earn a bit of extra cash in my spare time and I’ve heard a load of hype about affiliate marketing. I’ve never tried to do anything like this before but am thinking of giving it a go. I’ve been looking at stuff on the internet to do with this and it all sounds great but is there anyone here who actually does this and makes money? Can anyone give me any hint & tips to get started?

Any info would be greatly appreciated!!!

    Affiliate marketing is one method making money online. Some people have done it and earn 5 figure commission per month.

    System is that you will register with the seller and they will give you link to promote. All you have to do is to promote your link. If there is people buying from your link, you will get commission. Most affiliate marketing is free to join.

    you can check www [dot] clickbank [dot] com to get the idea.

    but may be you could gather some info about affiliate marketing so you know the system better

    Affiliate marketing can be a great way to make money online, and if you’re willing to put the work in, you can be very successful.

    The biggest thing when starting out is to focus on learning… don’t be worried if you’re not making any money in the first month… it takes a while to find a comfortable groove and the most effective methods that work for you.

    Our site offers a whole range of free lessons which can help you get started. There’s also a whole range of other free content out there as well. I’d be weary of anyone trying to sell you a course or anything like that when you’re just starting out. Pretty much everything you need to know you can learn for free.

    The biggest thing though… learn by doing. Once you’ve looked through some good learning material… think up a niche, get a site or a blog, and just start seeing what you can come up with. If you’re first program doesn’t work, you can just start another one!

    You may find these lessons useful. Check them out for free at:

    Hope that’s helpful. Best of luck!!

    I have been doing affiliate marketing for three years now. I work a full-time job and have a family so I can’t invest the time into affiliate marketing that I’d like to but I am consistently making an extra $300 monthly and I’m seeing more and more traffic to my websites. I know if I could do it full-time, I’d be making a lot more money. I really enjoy it…it’s a lot of fun.

    I actually pay a monthly fee ($39, $29 if you pay for a full year) to be a member at Wealthy Affiliate. They teach you everything and I mean everything you need to know to become a successful affiliate marketer. This site is great and I wouldn’t recommend it if I didn’t think it’s the best resource online to learn affiliate marketing. I’ve written a couple of articles about it explaining what they offer if you’re interested.

    Hi Carl,

    Yes it does work and yes you get paid and you can do it in large scale if you have the budget and/or lots of visitors to your website or in small scale.

    Don’t quit your day job. I haven’t yet.

    It’s so hard to find good ad revenue opportunities, but with the affiliate program, I can get commission from click-through sales from a great product! Plus you get a $10 CAD bonus just for signing up! There’s no easier way to make money.

    I saw the gent who’s created the Affiliate Black Book at an Internet marketing event in Vegas, and even reviewed his ebook. It was awesome, easy tips to use right away to earn some money.
    Don’t have a link to that ebook, but here are his new site pages:

    I’d bookmark them (and I did) to get in the loop…

    Being an affiliate marketer you are earning money from placing a link to the product he is selling on the website, promoting it and get visitors to click the link and turn viewers into paying customers.

    By the time visitor clicks on the link and buy the product, the affiliate immediately earn commission from this sale. The more referrals the more profit for the affiliate internet marketer.

    It’s also one of the best way to make money working from home as there is no need to create a product because it is already been done by the merchant. And as an affliate marketer, all you have to do is to come up with ways to bring the prospects to the link and buy the product.

    The good thing is that affiliate programs are providing online training and also marketing tools to use. All you need to do as their affiliate is to learn how to use the tools they give you. Becoming an affiliate marketer is simple, even teenagers can it.

    There is minimal risk involved and you don’t have to worry about inventory, processing nor shipping. You can work from home with comfort and be with your family.

    To get started, I would recommend easy-to-join programs like Amazon and Clickbank.

    There is a lot to learn though (how to market your sites and products). A good forum I use for information is

    There are literally tens of thousands of ways to make money online, and this is no exaggeration. As we speak there are hundreds of new markets emerging all the time. One can get lost in the sheer potential to make money online. However the easiest and quickest way to make money is this: promote and sell the products and services that other companies have already created and set up in exchange for a percentage of the selling price. This model is called “affiliate marketing“. This is extremely easy because the tools to perform market research are so readily available. Tens of thousands of people are currently earning incomes equal to their day jobs by marketing online. There are also other established methods such as Google Adsense, selling information products and many others requiring more technical knowledge and experience. You will need some coaching no matter what, so find yourself a coach and learn all you can and take your time as you will need these tools for success. Hope this helped

    There are always to sides in making money on internet

    1 ) publisher is the person that created the product and carries the copyright.

    2 ) affiliate is the person that promotes publisher’s product and get commission if sales appear.

    Actually I do not reccommend you to become an affiliate, I want you to have your own products and affiliates.

    Let hundreads of people struggle to sell your product.

    The Affiliate Masters Course by Dr. Ken Evoy is what has given me a basic understanding of affiliate marketing & how to use it to earn money online. Now I own a website which attracts free traffic from the search engines. When you own your own website you can “presell” your visitors before sending them to your affiliate links. This increases your conversion rate. This is the perfect ebook to read for anyone who wants to learn about affiliate marketing. I have read it, practiced it, and it helped me to develop the skills necessary to earn money online. You can read the ebook for free and it will answer a lot of your questions.
