Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

You may have heard that it is possible to make money on online, you may also have stumbled upon some of the many scam opportunities promoted all over the internet but still ask yourself what is affiliate marketing online? In addition you are probably wondering which is the best affiliate marketing website and is it possible to do free affiliate marketing.

I hope this article will answer a few of your questions.

To put it simply affiliate marketers earn income by promoting products for others, most commonly by blogging, writing articles & video marketing and subscribing to affiliate programs such as Amazon. 95% of affiliate programs are free to join so you really can build a business with zero investment!

Blogging

The word blog is a short for web log as is a means of publishing information and starting discussion on the internet. The subject and the content of a blog can be on any topic with products promoted relevant to the subject. In order to drive traffic to your blog you will need to carry out keyword research in order to ensure your blog ranks above others.

Writing Articles

Over 2 billion people around the world use the internet, often to find the answer to a question, which is probably how you came across this article! Writing articles around a subject you are interested in is fun. The search engines will be looking for content and will overlook articles that over use keywords in an attempt to rank the article higher.

So once you have chosen an affiliate program and selected the products you plan to promote all you have to do is write an article around this subject. For example if you have an interest in hiking you could write a series of articles around this subject and include reviews for hiking books available from Amazon. Every time a reader clicks through from your article to Amazon to buy one of these books (or any other) you will earn an affiliate fee. Articles can be submitted for publishing on a variety of dedicated sites; this one piece was submitted via Street Articles.

Video Marketing

This method is becoming increasingly popular; people love to watch a video! Instead of writing your content or review you simply record it and upload to a video network such as You Tube or Vimeo with your affiliate link inserted. If the viewer clicks through from your video and buys you get your affiliate fee.

I hope by now you have a better understanding of affiliate marketing and are ready to get started; there is support available from online business communities which are well worth joining as they can offer free training and interaction with fellow affiliate marketers.
