Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Mobile affiliate marketing is something every small business owner should seriously consider as a way of earning extra income. This is not a suggestion to stop what you are currently doing to bring in income. That is insane. If you have a business that is bringing in steady income, by all means keep doing that. What is being suggested is an additional stream of income. After all, who doesn't need another way to earn money. This is income that can be coming in while you are running your main business. This is money you can literally earn in your sleep. In this article you will learn more about mobile affiliate marketing and how it can help you create an additional income source.

Mobile affiliate marketing is similar to traditional affiliate marketing. Let me explain how traditional affiliate marketing works and then I will discuss how mobile affiliate marketing works. In traditional affiliate marketing, you join up with an affiliate network. An affiliate network is simply the company that runs the various affiliate programs. Merchants will sign up to work with the affiliate network to promote their product. The affiliate network then hosts the creatives. The affiliate marketer promotes the merchant's offerings in whatever way works to drive customers to the merchant's website. Mobile affiliate marketing works the same way. The difference between mobile affiliate marketing and traditional affiliate marketing is that you are using mobile devices to drive traffic to the merchant's website as opposed to just the computer.

Mobile affiliate marketing is different from traditional affiliate marketing because cell phone users are more likely to pay attention to your marketing message than computer users are. Mobile phone ads still have an "OOOH! AHH!" factor that email messages just don't have anymore. With mobile affiliate marketing you can target your ads a lot better. You can target certain handsets which means you can single people out according to income. Usually if someone can afford an expensive cell phone, that person can afford your offer.

As with regular affiliate marketing, mobile affiliate marketing requires a hungry crowd in order for your offer to be successful. In other words, your offer must satisfy some want or need that a group of people are extremely passionate about. Something like offering someone with diabetes a way to lose weight and still eat tasty food would go over really well because diabetics have to maintain a certain weight or risk severe health problems.

Mobile affiliate marketing can definitely add money to your bottom line. It is not likely to happen overnight. As with anything else in business, you have to put in the work to get the rewards. Remember, success comes before work only in the dictionary. Also you have to take action. You won't be successful just sitting around reading about mobile affiliate marketing. You have to actually do affiliate marketing in order to make money from it. Now stop reading this article and get your first mobile affiliate marketing campaign started. You can start looking for offers at and then once you find your offers  you will want to make your way to a mobile advertising company to start running your offers. You can find a list of adnetworks and other affiliate companies here at my blog Internet Marketing AK. See you soon.
