Looking for A Legitimate Work From Home Business Opportunity?

Have you searched the internet for a legitimate work from home business opportunity? There is one home business opportunity that is safe and has a proven track record. You don’t need a huge investment to start this and since you are working for yourself, you don’t need to worry that you are being taken for a ride. This work from home business is called Affiliate Marketing.

What is Affiliate Marketing?

Affiliate Marketing is setting up websites that provide a service for people looking for products. Your site offers products from various vendors and the vendors will pay you a commission based on the sales that you drive to their site. This is similar to the old sales forces like Kirby or Fuller Brush. The only difference is that you are online with your offer.

How do you get Paid?

The vendors will typically belong to a network that takes care of tracking your sales and directing the commissions to the correct place. Many of the Affiliate networks will pay by check but most will provide a payment directly to a PayPal account. PayPal is secure and is available in many countries throughout the world.

Where can I find an Affiliate network?

The largest affiliate network in the US is Amazon. A huge percentage of Amazon’s sales are generated by affiliates to their program. Unfortunately, due to some rather restrictive laws, Amazon will not allow affiliates to work from some states. This is not a huge problem as other networks are available that will allow affiliates to work from their states. Commission Junction is another that does allow businesses to operate in any location. This is set up a bit differently than Amazon in that the vendors sign up with CJ and you contact them through the network to promote their products directly. Commissions at CJ are typically higher than Amazon as well.

How do you promote a product on the Internet?

The first thing you need to provide for your readers is good solid content on your chosen topic. This isn’t as hard as you may think. All you need to do is pretend that you are talking to a friend about your topic or idea. You can certainly have a good conversation can’t you? Pretend that your friend is asking about your stuff. What would they ask, what would you tell them. Easy as that. Write it down.

Eventually, when you have lots of information on your site you will want to dress it up a bit. Find some compelling pictures to accompany your information. If it is funny or cute all the better. Give people a bit of a laugh if you can. This will get them in a better mood and make them more receptive to your information.

To get your website read on the internet it needs to have a good ranking in the search engines. The largest search engines are Google, Bing and Yahoo. Each will rank your site with the terms that you use in your writing. Using terms that have high search volume and low competition will help you to rank. There is a whole discipline called SEO (Search Engine Optimization) that will allow you to rank more easily. It is not hard to learn and there are quite a few places that will do this for you or even teach you to do SEO for your own site.

Make sure that you give Affiliate Marketing a look if you are looking for a legitimate work from home opportunity. It will provide you with an income with unlimited potential and a way to work on your own schedule. It takes discipline to run your own business, it also takes time to get your business up and running. It can however fill your needs and dreams.

Nice article Craig, very clear. Unfortunately, I'm in one of those sales tax states that Amazon avoids. But you're right, there are other options.
