What Is Affiliate Marketing

And Can I Get Rich Using It?

 

 

Simply put, Affiliate Marketing is the Internet version of commission sales. You make a deal with a company where they agree to pay you some amount of money to display some type of ad to visitors at your site .

 

to get them to go to the company’s

site and do something.

That something may be as simple as clicking on the ad itself (Pay Per Click), identifying themselves to the advertiser for further action (Pay Per Lead) . or getting the visitor to buy something, either on the spot or within an agreed upon time frame (Pay Per Sale).

 

There is tremendous debate about who

started the first affiliate program,

but Amazon’s is probably the most successful (it was started in 1996). Around that time Linkshare, arguably the first affiliate network, was launched. I met with the Linkshare folks when they were first getting started.

 

and they struck me as clever people with a great idea. BeFree, another early ad network that is now part of Commission Junction, was another company that got in early.

 

Unfortunately the dot com bust also caused a bust for

affiliate marketers.

Google’s Adsense, combined with a growing economy and Internet ubiquity. brought the business and ecommerce in general back to robust growth. Can you get rich from affiliate programs? More generally:

 

Can you get rich from Internet Marketing?

Sure. This is America. Just don’t expect to get rich

overnight.

There’s no such thing as getting rich quick. It takes time, energy, and a lot of hard work. The poster boy for getting rich off the Internet has to be Darren Rouse of problogger.net. Darren admits to making several hundred thousand dollars a year with his blog, which

 

shows other people how to make money on the

Internet.

My first observation in getting back into the online world after six years .offline is that the people who seem to be making the most money are the people who have products .and services that they sell to people who want to make money on the Internet.

 

I think that’s pretty funny, but it’s not going to last

forever.

What’s the formula? It’s all about numbers. Get people to visit your site, engage them with your content and your ideas. and get them to do something that will make you money. The more people you can get to the site,

 

the more chances you have to get people to take the

action that enriches you.

Since you’re reading this article I am assuming that you think you have a program for getting people to your site that is working well. If not, you shouldn’t be reading about Affiliate Programs…you should be reading about programs for getting good traffic to your site,

 

which I plan to cover at a later time.

Here are some examples of sites that make money, and how much they make (they are from sites for sale listings around the Internet):

 

A myspace.com support website has 60,000 unique

visitors a day and makes about $1.8M per year.

A free tattoo website has 1,500 visitors a day and makes about $6000 a year. A weight loss blog has 1,600 visitors a day and makes $36,000 a year. A dictionary, encyclopedia and reference site has 1,800 visitors a day and makes $2,400 a year.

 

How much will you make?

It all depends on the nature of your site, how good the content of your site is, how well the ads are integrated into the site, and if you have chosen the right offers for your audience.

Your Affiliate Marketing Guide

Affiliate marketing is something that many web masters know how to do. They know what it is about, and what it takes to be successful. However, if you are new to the web master world,

you may just be wondering how you can get into affiliate marketing and making an income on the side for yourself. Doing so is not that complicated,

and we have created this guide for you to get you

started.

First of all, lets cover just exactly what affiliate marketing is. Affiliate marketing is when you sell or get leads for someone else’s service or product. You are going to find that there are so many people that do this.

 

When a company needs some help making sales,

and they allow people to sign up as affiliates, they are willing to pay a commission or a flat rate per lead or sale. Depending on the company, this percentage or flat rate will vary.

Affiliate marketing can be used to make a decent income several ways. You can use a website, a blog, newsletter, email, ads etc.

The list goes on and on. However,

For example the most popular form of affiliate marketing is done with a website. When you choose the market that you want to promote, be sure that you choose one that you are some what familiar with.

 

This way you can become an expert on the topic, and

everyone will know that you are the king of that

market.

Once that is done, it is time for a URL. There are many places that you can get your own domain from. Once you have decided where you will purchase that from, choose a URL that has the topic you are selling in the URL for the best results.

For example, if you are wanting to market cat food, you wont use a URL that has dog in it.

Make sure that everything is all relevant.

Now that you have your market and your URL chosen, you will want to determine the hosting that you will use for your website. You need dependable hosting for the best results.

A hosting company that has more up time than down time is best because during the down time, your website will not be accessible.

 

In addition get some recommendations from others

that have tried a few and use the best that you can find.

It is worth it to pay for good hosting.

Once that is done, you are ready to get your affiliate 

links and website set up

so that you can market the most effectively. Determine the amount of money that you want to make, and set up an outline of how you are going to make it. There are so many ways that you can get a website out there to be seen, and you will want to make the best decisions. So,

 

finding out the best ways for you to do this is that is

cost effective is a good start.

Learning SEO which is also known as search engine optimization is a great idea. Using SEO to get your site higher in the search engine rankings with keywords will pay off in the end.

You can learn it yourself, or you can pay someone to do this part for you. It is up to you. However, you should know that learning and using SEO yourself is time consuming.

 

Hiring an SEO guru might be better for you.

Write articles about the market that you are promoting from your website and submit them to all of the article directories. When you include a back link to the site that you are optimizing that will help you as well with the search engines.

 

Affiliate marketing is not anything that you can make

money with over night.

You need to be able to build up and keep adding to your website daily or weekly, and keep it going. You can do it, just don’t give up.
