Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!


Dear friend I hear ya! The search engines like Google and Yahoo are working overtime with people entering the search phrase I Need To Make Money!

So many people out of work or about to be out of work. And Spring Break right around the corner. And of course we are in the second worst economic recession in US history.

If you are looking for a serious opportunity to make fulltime income that could start as soon as one week this article will tell you what you need to do to make that happen.

This article will cover what I believe is the most lucrative and easiest ways to make serious money by using the power of the Internet known as Affiliate Marketing.

What is Affiliate Marketing?

In 2009 Retail E-Commerce Sales hit $131.43 Billion with a “B”.

It is expected to reach $198.3 Billion by 2013 despite the current recession.

Affiliate Marketing will allow you to tap into and profit from this massive market if you are willing to learn some new things.

Simply put, Affiliate Marketing is when an Independent Contractor or Affiliate (You) markets a product that actually belongs to someone else known as an Affiliate Merchant or Affiliate Network company.

These Afiliate Merchants or Networks will pay up to a 75% Comission each time a customer purchases a product as a result of an Affiliate Marketer marketing effort.

Can you imagine getting paid up to 75% each time a customer visits your Landing Page or Website and decides to purchase a product you are marketing?

So many companies who sell products online now including Walmart and Sears utilize Affiliate Marketers to market their products which creates a win win situation.

How Does Affiliate Marketing Work?

Simply select an Affiliate Network or Merchant who handles the products you want to market and enroll in their Affiliate Marketing program. It’s Free!

They will provide you with a Unique Affiliate Link that you will use in your online marketing campaigns which might include Emails, Article Marketing, Blogging, Classified Ads, Physical Advertising, Pay Per Click (PPC), Social Networking, etc.

When you attract a prospect to your website or landing page (Often provided by the Merchant) and they see your review or description of the product and they click on your Unique Link provided by the Merchant they are either taken to the Merchant’s website where the product is displayed or demonstrated and priced or they are taken directly to the Merchant’s Check Out or Shopping Cart System where the customer places his/her order and pays with credit card using the Merchant’s Credit Card Merchant Account.

This sale is tracked by your Affiliate Link and credited to your account. Once you reach a minimum threshold of usually about $100 then the Merchant pays you either by check of by Direct Deposit on a monthly or bi monthly basis.

The merchant handles customer service, complaints, refunds, phone calls, emails, etc.

Your only job is to bring customers to the merchant!

Can you begin to see the potential? What if you were selling vitamins or supplements where people will typically purchase around $75 worth at one time to take advantage of shipping specials.

What if you marketed to a dozen different Niche Markets and offered many products for each niche from several dozen affiliate merchants?

Many Affiliate Marketers are doing that exact thing and earning Five Figure Monthly Incomes doing it.

Some make that much just marketing only ONE product with ONE Affiliate Merchant.

What are Some of the Advantages of Affiliate Marketing?

  • Almost anyone can learn do it! If you found this article by doing a Google Search you can learn how to do Affiliate Marketing.
  • Very Low Start-Up or Operating Cost. Less than $75 PER YEAR to purchase a Domain Name and set up and Publish a Website.

So, How would I Learn How to Do Affiliate Marketing?

Some people learn Affiliate Marketing by copying others and trial and error. I would not recommend this because it will probably lead to a lot of discouragement and lost time when you could be earning money with affiliate marketing.

There are a number of Online Academies that specialize in Internet Affiliate Marketing Training. Some even offer not only all the training you will need but continued support and all the tools and services you will need to operate your business under one roof.

There are even Free Affiliate Marketing courses that may provide all the training you will need.
