Affiliate Marketing On A Budget
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

In order to find out the best way to do affiliate marketing on a budget, it is important that we first understand what affiliate marketing is. Affiliate marketing is simply the process of finding a product you believe people will buy, and then finding a way to direct consumers to that product. If you sent them to the product, and they buy that product, you will get a portion of the proceeds from that sale.

Simple....right? Wrong.

While the process can be made very simple, it is not simple at all to a person who is just starting out with very limited knowledge of the internet. Let's look at some of the challenges you will be faced with.

1. You will need to find a product people need or want. This means keyword research. While there are thousands of ebooks on this subject, most of them are so hopelessly outdated as to be useless, and they are often not inexpensive. This problem can be eliminated through a membership to Wealthy Affiliate, where you are provided with immediate keywords that are updated in real time.

2. You will need to build a website in order to be taken seriously. This involves either a knowledge of HTML or Wordpress or something comparable. The learning curve can be quite long, depending on what your knowledge is at the beginning. This problem can be eliminated through a membership to Wealthy Affiliate, where you will have the resources necessary to build a website in a matter of minutes, and with no programming knowledge required whatsoever.

3. Whether you want to pay for website visitors or get them for free, you will need somebody coming to your site to see what you are offering. While PPC (Pay Per Click) is the quickest way to get targeted traffic, it is also the best way to destroy your budget if you do it wrong. Article marketing is the best way to get free traffic to your website, but it requires a plan that will make sure your articles are actually being seen once you write them. Once again, the best way to accomplish either of these feats successfully is to learn affiliate marketing through the Wealthy Affiliate University.

These are just a few of the challenges you will be faced with. There are literally thousands of ways to get burned on the internet when you are trying to learn affiliate marketing. However, there is only one Wealthy Affiliate University. A membership to this incredible resource center will not only answer all your questions, but it will walk you step by step through everything you need to get up and running in a matter of days.

If you are unemployed, or unable to work, it goes without saying that you are on a very limited budget. I don't want to see you make a lot of mistakes that can cost you money you can ill afford to lose. Take your time, do your research, and don't fall for every product sales pitch out there. There is a lot of money to be made in affiliate marketing, and I wish you mush success.
