A great way to earn money online is by being an affiliate marketer which basically means you are marketing for other people in exchange for a commission. The commission usually runs between 30 and 75% with 50% being the average.
When starting out, you are given an affiliate link that goes to the website of the product owner. This special link is encoded with your unique affiliate id and when you send a customer to the product owner’s site through your special link and they make a purchase you receive a commission. This works great for both you and the product owner, because you make the bank rolls coming and the product owner makes higher sales and cuts down on advertising costs at the same time.
I would like to remind that it’s not right to bring all of your chosen affiliate programs together on one website to save some money on web hosting. It is ideal to have one website or atleast a sub domain per niche, with a squeeze page for a specific offer. This way you can review and target your marketing efforts for better results.
Make the pages attractive, interesting and include calls to act on the information. Each headline should move the readers to try and read more, even contact you. Highlight your special points. This will aid your readers to learn what the product is and will make them want to find out more. That is when they will click on your affiliate and help you make more commissions.
Also bear in mind when using autoresponder programs be careful in using the word "free"; older spam filters could dump those into the junk folder before anyone reads them
Another is getting traffic. The kind of traffic that is targeted to your product. One of the best ways to get this kind of traffic is by writing articles for submission and publication. A good rule of thumb is to try to write a minimum of 2 articles per week, with at least 400-600 words. By continuously writing and submitting these articles to you can yield as many as 100 targeted prospects to your site in a day.
If you think about it, it just requires minimum time and an action plan on your part. Once you have completed the steps for one affiliate program you can move forward to the next and you will come up with a good source of income along with an expanding affiliate marketing business.
