      Affiliate marketing is my favorite way to make money online. I write the article once, build backlinks and leave it out there. Once the article ranks on the first page of Google, I start getting search engine traffic. That's when the sales roll in. Every morning, I check my Amazon, ebay, Squidoo,, etc to see how much money I earned. Some days I earn a lot and others I earn a modest amount. Regardless, the money will keep rolling in even if I stop writing. Can't beat affiliate marketing! Good luck with your internet ventures! :)

      Diversification should be stressed when it comes to affiliate marketing. Even Amazon, which is one of the biggest affiliate companies had to shut off affiliates in certain states due to tax implications, so anything can happen when you are an affiliate. By diversifying and having back-up products you can soften the financial blow when something of this nature happens.
