What is Affiliate Marketing?

Let me put it this way. How many times have you told a friend or relative about a product or service that you like that resulted in them purchasing that product or service?

Now imagine doing the same thing on the Internet, but on a much larger scale.

Now imagine that that the companies you refer people to pay you a commission for your referrals. That's how affiliate marketing works.

The perks of starting an affiliate marketing business include:

1. Typically no cost to join most affiliate programs.

2. The ability to work from home, be your own boss and set your own hours.

3. Startup costs are usually low. A fraction of what traditional business can be.

4. You don't have to worry about customer service, inventory, shipping or receiving.

5. It's easy to get started in affiliate marketing. There are many online programs that assist you and allow you to get started immediately.

6. You can work full time or part time. (Did I mention working from home?)

You would be surprised how much affiliate marketing it going on out there. I know I was. It's all around us.

For example, as I drive down the road, there are little signs beside the road advertising a dating website. I see these signs every day, but I never realized they were put there by an affiliate marketer marketing for a dating site.

Wal-Mart is looking for you.


The next time you are shopping at your favorite online store, try scrolling down to the very bottom on their homepage. You will find that many of them have a little link at the bottom of their page labeled "affiliate". Look at the Amazon.com and Dell Computers sites for examples. Even Wal-Mart. These companies are looking for people to help them sell their products.

How many times have you purchased something on the Internet and ended up making your purchase through Clickbank? Clickbank is an affiliate program network. They describe themselves as "...the Internet's largest digital marketplace". They are basically the middle men between affiliates and the real product sellers.

If you have an ebook you want to sell, you might put it on Clickbank. When someone purchases your ebook, the affiliate and Clickbank both get a percentage of the sale and you get the rest.

The thing I like most about affiliate marketing, is that there really is very little maintenance required. Once you set up your website and affiliate advertisements, your home business can be on autopilot.

Really....it can be a "Set it and forget it" work for you.

It's not uncommon for affiliates to market for multiple companies, creating multiple streams of income, all from the comfort of home. 

​There is a lot more to being an affiliate marketer and I would like to send you an E-Book to tell you more.  The book is "Affiliate Marketing Primer" and it will give you a starting look into the world of Affiliate Marketing. 

But, to do that I will need to add your name and email to my list. 

Yea, I know you have done that before and sometimes it is a real pain, but remember...you can unsubscribe from my list at any time.

One click and you will never hear from me again. In fact if I don't deliver you quality offers and quality content, then I insist you unsubscribe. I wouldn't want you hanging around if you are not getting something out of this.

So, just give me this chance.

Sign up, get the book, and if you don't like it or me, then unsubscribe.

That simple.​
