Learn How To Become An Affiliate Marketer: Webinar
A staggering $2.1 billion in affiliate marketing fees were paid to blog and website owners in 2008.
This finding in a recent study by Jupiter Research confirms what many savvy Internet marketers have known for a while:
Affiliate marketing has become one of the top business opportunities online because the startup costs are so low and the income you generate can be mind-blowing.
Affiliate marketing involves having your own site and sending your traffic to someone else's site to buy their products or services.
For every sale initiated by a link from your site, you earn a percentage–an affiliate sales commission.
Affiliate marketing can be done on a part-time basis, and many are so successful that they've made it their full-time job.
Equally exciting, you can get in the game in just a few hours. But how successful you are is based on the amount of time and effort you devote.
Here is how you can make money online with these 4 tips:

2. Decide your product/service niche
Affiliate marketers help companies and entrepreneurs sell everything from jewelry to website services and how-to e-books.
Choose an area you're familiar with or one you're enthusiastic about learning.
You'll be more likely to do the work and less likely to get bored before the money starts rolling in.
3. Find products and services to promote
Many affiliate networks exist to connect merchants with affiliate site publishers who can help sell their goods.
4. Affiliate sites must attract lots of targeted traffic to succeed
Most people visiting your website or blog won't click your affiliate links.
That's why it's crucial to employ a mix of marketing tactics to increase traffic–highly targeted traffic–to your site.
There are four main ways to get more site exposure and attract more potential customers:
Paid Advertising This is most effective when your ad copy headline, call-to-action message and graphics come together just right to compel people to click through and buy.
Free Advertising Sites like Craigslist and US Free Ads are but two of many popular places that accept links and banner ads for free.
These tend to be affiliate marketing sites themselves, earning the owner money whenever you click their ads.
E-mail Marketing Every visitor to your site is valuable, so capturing their names and e-mail addresses to stay in touch is important.
Many people might not buy your affiliate products until the third or fourth time they hear from you.
So it's crucial to place an opt-in subscription box on your site for people to start receiving a weekly or monthly newsletter from you.
