Everyone has probably heard a lot of hype about how to make money with affiliate marketing. It is a great way to make money because there is no storing of products; you don’t necessarily need a website, don’t deal with customers and their complaints, little or no start-up, and there is no dealing with shipping/delivery. Most people new to affiliate marketing have the false conception that all they have to do is post a few ads in the classifieds, or a list a bunch of links. If you do just those things chances are you won’t get a sale. You have to market the product(s) in order to make sales, which can be difficult, but not impossible.
There are thousands affiliate programs to join, but you must have some knowledge of how to compete in the marketplace. The internet has a wealth of information on how to make money with affiliate programs, but the question is will any of it work for you. I have bought products related to making money as an affiliate and followed the instructions precisely and never made a dime. I would suggest that you never spend money on the first book or kit you see, look for reliable resources. Look for reviews to see what people are saying about the product or service because for the most part people generally give an honest opinion about their experience with a product or service. DON'T pick a product just because you think it looks cool. Try to define a niche market, and target your affiliate products to that market.
Most people just starting out in the affiliate business are working on a shoe string budget and they just don’t have the money to invest. Never under estimate the power of free tools, you may not get the full benefit but they will help you a lots. There are many gurus in the affiliate marketing business that knows what they are talking about and making fantastic money. They do sell their expertise and knowledge, but generally it’s pricey. Along the way you will need to purchase some software to help advance yourself to the level you are trying to achieve. ClickBank is a good place for beginners to start marketing products; it extremely easy to setup an account and there are thousands of digital products to market.
