Affiliate Marketing is when someone else pays you a commission or a percentage of what you sell for them. There are many different types of affiliate marketing programs online. There are those that pay a one time commissions from a sale. Some of them might offer lifetime residual commissions, and others may pay just for leads that you can get them.

By taking advantage of the affiliate marketing programs that are currently available, you can make money and improve your own marketing skills.

Affiliate Marketing has its advantages and disadvantages. If you are not careful it is easy to get scammed by the “Gurus” of the industry. Gurus are so called “affiliate marketing experts” who create affiliate programs that are designed to perpetually feed their own bank accounts. Their mantra is “I can teach you how to be rich like me”, but if you follow them you will never be rich like them.

Every step in their programs requires you to join or send money on something else that they own or have interests in. The only way you make money from them is by selling their program to others for a small commission. You don’t make money from the other stuff they sell inside.
