    If you’re interested in an extra income, check out this forum and then sign up at ACME, the first step totally free. I remind you that every self-respecting program to start earning it always takes a small investment. If you do not want to spend even $ 1, listen to me Internet marketing is not for you.

    As we often say on our forum, first you must learn to earn and then you will start earning serious. So come on the forum and began studying how to move on the Internet.

    Affiliate marketers are sales middlemen, who collect a commission from any customer they send to a ‘store’. Realistically there are probably more people who tried it but never made a sale than there are successes.
    Comparing to setting up an online store through ebay or amazon, being an affiliate is less complicated, no inventory to maintain, no schlepping packages to the post office, no need to interact with each and every ‘customer’.
    Affiliates earn perhaps 5% to 25% commission for hard goods, and 30% to 75% for digital goods that have no real production or shipping cost.

    There are tons of affiliate networks out there that manage the tracking and payment of affiliates on the behalf of companies, while some manage their own affiliate program, for the most part affiliates have to take on faith that they are being credited for sales they bring in, it’s assumed that some ‘shaving’ of affiliate commissions takes place.

    The key to affiliate marketing is getting traffic, it might take thousands of visitors to a general magazine like site get one sale, some build entertaining useful sites that develop free traffic in the courser of as much as 6 to 12 month of development. These marketers have to spend a considerable effort making their site important in the eyes of the search engines, without breaking too many of their rules regarding faked site popularity, such as buying or trading links from other sites.

    The big players have sort of a stock market speculator mentality effectively buying and selling advertisement, some manage a get their investment back + 50% profit a month or 2 down the road, they have to float a month or two of income in advertising budgets, usually on credit cards.

    The FTC has recently restated their regulations in internet marketer terms, warning that fake reviews and testimonials common in affiliate marketer sites are a no-no.

    The future of the trade may be a bit uncertain, Google seems to be of the opinion that affiliates are superfluous, like street hustlers who bring in customers for the store down the street. Apparently Google recently canceled the advertising accounts of thousands of affiliate marketers, perhaps just the ones dealing in more unsavory products, like some that re-bill credit cards.

    Hello Marine

    Affiliate marketing is a great way to make an extra source of income, or even with time, it will be your main source of income. The idea is very simple, there are thousands of business in the web, they sell a product or a service in internet, but the promotion is very expensive as there are millions of websites. So they need everybody help, to get this help, they are willing to share a percentage of each customer you send to them. Isn’t it amazing? And it is actually very simple.

    Good luck, and start getting richer!

    Hi Marine,

    As an online marketing professional since 1994 I agree with your friend – you can definitely earn extra money doing affiliate marketing. There are lots and lots of really neat products you can offer on your website to sell. I only offer things I like myself that I have personally checked out very thoroughly first.

    The first thing you’ll want to do is to get a bit of simple education on the subject. After a huge amount of personal research and a lot of disappointments, I took an online course offered by a top affiliate marketing pro and I was very pleasantly surprised and pleased with what I learned.

    This would be my advice – first do a simple course, and from there, that will give you the direction to go in which will work for you personally.

    You can reach me through my website below and I will answer more questions for you if you like. The main thing is – do NOT part with any money until you are certain you are making a wise investment (that goes for anything in life, too!).

    If you just want to get started right away and get some free information or do the course, click on the second link below.

    Thanks for asking the same question I was asking a while back!
    Sincerely, Mandy
