As I sit here working at my day job I suddenly realized that I need more than social security for my retirement. The recent down turn in the economy has not helped my retirement at all, actually leaving me virtually no nest egg. So I have been thinking, which in and of itself is dangerous. I do not want something in a job that requires me to show up at a particular hour every day. I do not want to have to travel. What I decided was to look for something that I could do from home. Narrows it down some but I also did not want to have visitors to my house. I kept looking further and it seems as though I either have to do some form of marketing over the Internet or do consulting.

What I decided on was to do this affiliate marketing on the Internet. This type of marketing requires the marketer to write articles that give the reader a review or type of testimonial of a product such that the person looking for that product will want to click on the link you put into your article and go to a landing page you have that is relevant to the product and then to click through and purchase the item. The products you can promote can be found at Amazon, Clickbank, Tiger Direct and many others.

I like to write so affiliate marketing should be right down my alley. I found that this type of writing is not as easy as it looks. The articles have to be at least 400 words and upwards of 700 words. To many and people will go away before they finish and it has to be interesting, and not an out and out ad for the product. This type of writing takes a lot of practice to be good at it, and affiliate marketing requires a lot of hard work, patience, fortitude, and consistency in no particular order.

The other part of this affiliate marketing was the idea that you could do it using free techniques. I kept seeing something about bum marketing and not costing anything to make it work, but it was going to cost money to find out how to do bum marketing. Finally I found this mad marketing method which also is using free techniques and a training manual that was also free. I tried the mad market method and it is everything they say it is. I includes all of the resources you need, and the how to do all of the different things you need to do to become that affiliate marketer. Spells out how to write articles, and then how to get them posted at the article sites. Shows you how and has examples on how to include links in order to link your article to either your free web site or directly to the affiliate product site. For the new affiliate marketer this is a reference manual that is essential to your marketing campaign.

It took me a year before I realized that it really did take a lot of hard work, patience, and consistency to make it as an affiliate marketer. I have even included them in this article and hope they will help you out before you spend any hard earned money on training you can get for free. Once i got that first sale I found it much easier to write the next articles, being an affiliate marketer can even get to be something I enjoy doing.
