Affiliate Marketing For A Second Job
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Are you looking for a way to make a second income? I was a couple of years ago and not getting anywhere. I could not take a job that required a schedule due to my day job, being on call makes it hard to carry a second job. I did keep looking and finally found a program that seems to be working, although it did take a while before I realized there is more to it than standing back and watching it. What I have come up with is a home based business as an affiliate marketer.

There are many companies on the Internet that lean heavily on affiliate marketers to get their message out and sell products. You may also find local companies in your area or mine that will use affiliate marketers to sell their products, for instance a local restaurant could use your services to drive more customers to their dining room.

I recommend taking a course that explains it all much more concisely than I can in a short article. One of the most important things you need to learn is writing articles and making them relevant to the subject you are writing about. The articles are written to focus on a particular problem people are having and then giving them a solution by clicking on a link either to a sales page or a site you can put together that will give more information and then link to a sales page. These techniques can all be free and have been proven successful at generating traffic and purchasing customers.

It sounds hard but all it really takes is some hard work and a lot of persistence. This is not some course promising thousands of dollars within the first week. The course I am taking is a free course backed up by the Wealthy Affiliate University. The course will teach you all of the parts to become an affiliate marketer and is deep enough to make an excellent reference manual, I refer to it continually as I work this affiliate marketing business.

The course will take you through article writing, how and why, and how to submit to the article directories. How to make a web site and then driving traffic to your site. SEO, search engine optimization, and finding key words using a key word tool from Google which is free. The course teaches affiliate marketing using only free techniques. How to join the various article marketing sites and also where you can find more help.
