Make Money With Affiliate Marketing

As we are all aware we are living in an ailing global economy that is suffering from mass unemployment, people being laid off daily, home foreclosures and debt that is spiralling out of control. With all this happening how on earth are we suppose to make money to lift ourselves out of this depression?

Well, believe it or not despite the gloomy forecast there are still many people who are making money. But those people only make up 3% of money makers, the other 97% fail to make money and add to the already debt ridden economy. Do you want to be in the 3% of people who make money online? If your answer is yes then you are reading the right hub!

The reason why 97% of people fail at making money online is because they do not learn the methods, rules and regulations that govern affiliate marketing. There are many do's and don'ts when setting up an online affiliate marketing business, and once you get these right you can go on to make as much as you like.

A few simple practises you must use if you want to make money online with affiliate marketing.

  • Find out and know exactly what affiliate marketing is
  • Research before you choose the niche market you intend to target

In today's economic climate where the financial institutions are becoming bankrupt, trading is at an all time low and mass unemployment affects peoples' lives, many are turning to the internet to create an online business from which they can make money.

Whilst there are many money making opportunities online I always answer the question of 'how to make money online?' with a resounding affirmation of 'Affiliate Marketing of course!' .

Affiliate Marketing is by far the easiest business to set up online, the reasons being;

1. You Do Not Need A Website To Sell The Product or Service

2. You Do Not Need To Create Your Own Product

The product is already created by the Vendor. You simply market it.

3. There's no updating or upgrading of products.

The Vendor takes care of all product updates, upgrades and website maintenance.

4. The Vendor also deals with customer services and product or service support.

5. You do not need to deal with e-commerce or refunds.


In short, Affiliate Marketing is all about selling other peoples' products as an affiliate, and for which you receive a commission when any sales are made.

There are quite a number of affiliate marketing companies to which you can sign-up for free as an affiliate. There's Amazon, eBay, Commission Junction, Trade Doubler, Click Bank, and Linkshare to name a few. You can virtually sell anything online be they physical products or digital ones.

Anyone can become an affiliate. It doesn't matter what you do in the day job, you can be a teacher, a home maker, a builder, doctor or lawyer (yes, that's right there are lawyers who have switched to affiliate marketing as their new career. I'm one of them!).

Affiliate Marketing is almost the perfect vehicle to making money online.
