Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

You may be tired of your 9 to 5 job, with the commute to and from work each day, and the aggravation of having someone looking over your shoulder, checking on what you are doing!

Or you may just feel that you would like to make a little money in your spare time to help pay some of the bills. You may just want to set out on your own and make money from home preferably over the internet, because you have heard that it is possible!

Or lastly you may have been retrenched or made redundant by your former employer, and in the current employment market you are simply not able to find a job, no matter how trivial!

Which ever of the above scenarios you find yourself in, you can actually make money from home, and one of the best ways is by learning about affiliate marketing. There are other methods of making money online, but affiliate marketing offers the greatest opportunity. So what do you need to get started with affiliate marketing?

Well very briefly, you should start here:

  1. An interest in something, it could be gardening or motor car racing, whatever it is it should be something which you have some knowledge about, or something which you would like to learn more about. This is because you are going to have to spend a fair amount of time writing about it.
  2. A website, preferably one you own, now while that may seem daunting, in fact it is actually relatively easy and anyone can do it. There are places where you can put up a website for free if you need to, to make a start, such as Squidoo, Hubpages and Blogger, but owning your own website is something that you should aspire to.
  3. A community who can support you, provide you with information and inspiration when you are feeling down or things are not going to plan. You can find such a community at Wealthy Affiliate University, an internet marketing community with information resources and support, where you can rub shoulders with people who are successful at internet marketing and who will give you advise if you ask!

So if you are looking to make money from home using internet marketing and specifically affiliate marketing. Here is what to do! Firstly, pick an interest or hobby. Secondly, get yourself a website, a free one is fine to start with, but buy yourself a domain and get hosting as soon as you are able. Lastly, and possibly most importantly, join a community of internet marketers who can help you and give you advice when you are struggling. Doing these things will help to ensure that you can become successful at internet marketing
