So what is the best way to generate money online? I would say affiliate marketing is really the easiest internet marketing method available for the beginners.
If you are new to internet marketing but would like to generate money online, affiliate marketing is the best online business model for you to generate a decent income online by promoting other people's product.
You may ask the common question, "what is affiliate marketing?" Basically, you will play the role of an affiliate or marketer for someone else's product i.e. the merchant's products. You will earn a commission when you have successfully promoted and sold the merchant's product. This is how you are going to generate money online. You are just like a "middle person", except that the sales is done online.
Through affiliate marketing, you do not need your own product to make money online! You just need to know how and where to locate the profitable products to promote. Then target a "hungry" and eager crowd who is willing to buy the products that you are promoting.
Affiliate networks are the networks which bring the merchants and affiliates together. There are many good and reliable online affiliate networks.

This is the first step you need to take if you want to generate money online.
