Unleashing the Untold Wealth of Affiliate Marketing

If anyone was asked to name a single method that marketers use to make a
surefire rapid income on the internet, then most of them would give you the same
answer – “affiliate marketing”. Though there are dozens of home business models
on the internet, it is quite safe to say that affiliate marketing must rank within the
top three, or maybe even at the top of the heap.

Basically, the affiliate marketing model means to promote someone’s product over
the internet. You are helping them with their advertising and are getting paid a
commission for that.

Where to Find Affiliate Networks

You can start by making an account on an affiliate network such as Clickbank,
Commission Junction and Amazon. Advertisers post their advertising requirements. 
When you are a part of this network, you can choose the products you want to
promote. This is called a niche.

Once you are done with that, you will need an affiliate marketing service to
promote the products you have chosen to sponsor. The best in this category
is 
Google AdWords (http://adwords.google.com/). You merely have to start a
campaign here, mentioning the product you want to promote and give the
URL that you are advertising. AdWords will automatically search for the right
website matches for the product and will advertise on them.  

You can also post your ads and links to free advertising sites like traffic
exchanges and safe mail sites.  This will help your products to get exposure.

The payment is fantastic. You must pay for every click that your ad gets. This is
known as Pay Per Click (PPC). There are some affiliate networking sites,
such as Clickbank, mentioned above, that the vendors who list their products
there will pay you when a sale is done. In that case, it becomes a Pay Per Sale
(PPS) affiliate service.

Your only expense is in starting the AdWords campaign. However, here you can
bid on how much you want to spend. The ROI (return on investment), paid as
commissions however, are much more than whatever money you will put into
the business.
