Easy Way To Make Money Online!
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

I have found and tried a number of Easy Ways to Make Money Online but the way I found that works best for me is Affiliate Marketing!

My name is K. Les Baker and I am 61 years young from a trades background and if I can learn how make money online you can too.

The reason I believe Affiliate Marketing is the Easy Way to Make Money Online is once you learn how it really is, not only the most easy way to make money online but its pleasant work and it allows you to help people at the same time.

Don’t misunderstand me here, if you are looking for some method where you just Click on a button and have money flow into your checking account your set for disappointment.

All those products that make that claim are just SCAMS that never work. That’s right, THEY NEVER WORK so please don’t waste your time or money. How do you think I know this?

What I am going to share with you is an Honest, Ethical, Pleasant and Easy way to make money online once you learn how to do it like I did.

What is Affiliate Marketing Anyway?

Affiliate Marketing is simply marketing other people’s products or other companies’ products I should say, for a commission but with an Internet Twist.

I found out there are literally Hundreds of Merchants who sell their Products and Services on the Internet and they have what are called Affiliate Programs you can join up with to promote their products by various methods online and they will pay you up to 75% when someone buys their product. The average is about 25%!

Can you imagine getting paid every time someone visits your Landing Page, Website, or Ad and Clicks on your Affiliate Link to purchase a product?

All because of something you might have done a week, month or even a year ago!

How Does Affiliate Marketing Work?

These Merchants are called Affiliate Networks or Affiliate Merchants and when you enroll in their Affiliate Program they assign you a UNIQUE AFILIATE LINK that you will place in your marketing materials.

When a customer clicks on your Affiliate Link they are taken from your Landing Page or Web Page or Ad to the Merchant’s Website where they can make their selection and then Pay for it using the Merchant’s Check Out (Shopping Cart) System and the Merchant’s Credit Card Merchant Account.

The Merchant takes care of the Shipping and Customer Service including any Refunds.

The Sale is Tracked and Credited to your Account and just as soon as you reach a Minimum Threshold of usually $100 the Merchant or Network pays you with Check or Direct Deposit. All automatically!

And guess what! If the customer returns you get paid again and again.

Now, don’t let me confuse you here. There is NO MINIMUM PRODUCTION, just a minimum threshold so the Merchant isn’t cutting checks constantly every time you get a sale.

Your only job is to Attract a Buying Customer to the Merchant’s Website or Landing Page.

What are the Benefits of Affiliate Marketing?

The best part is there is almost an Unlimited Number of products you can promote. Everything from Electronics to Vitamins or Sports Paraphernalia or whatever you happen to be into. That really makes it enjoyable!

I happen to be interested in Health type products and Supplements but there are so many other things to choose from.

Another thing I like is it is FREE to join an Affiliate Program and there are NO Products to buy.

In fact the only real COST involved is if you choose to have a website or use Pay Per Click (PPC) marketing to attract customers. A domain name and website hosting doesn’t have to cost anymore than $75 PER YEAR.

Or you might chose to enroll in a reputable online affiliate marketing academy which would add to your cost of doing business but can be well worth it.

I really love the Freedom and Independence it gives me and I can do it from anyplace I take my laptop.

How Much Can I Make as an Affiliate Marketer?

Some Affiliate Marketers get paid a couple hundred dollars a month and there are many others who make a Five Figure Monthly Income. Some reach that much their First Year!

It just depends on you and how willing you are to Learn and Work at it. That is the Key!

If you just go enroll with an Affiliate Network and don’t learn how to do effective marketing you probably won’t make much.

So, what’s the Hard Part?

Getting Started I think is the hardest part! It is really tough to decide where to start unless you get some good guidance from a reliable source.

Choosing a Profitable Niche Market can be tough until you learn how to do the research.

There are even some FREE Affiliate Marketing Courses available to teach you How To do that and teach you how to do research to find the best Keywords to use in your promotions and the best Density so you will get the most traffic or SEO.

Of course you will learn SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and all kinds of other neat stuff to help you be successful.

Once you learn how to do it, Affiliate Marketing really is the Easy Way to Make Money Online.


Affiliate Marketing isn’t for everyone but if you are teachable and willing to work at it you will be successful.

I am just a Country Boy that had only minimal computer and online skills, so if I can learn how so can you!

Best of Luck,

K. Les Baker
