Top Ways Affiliates Earn Money Surfing The Web
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

There are literally tons of sites on the internet that can earn you money surfing. How much money you could earn is dependent upon how much time you put into anything. It is possible to earn money surfing the web, but is this something that you really want to do?

Surfing online suits different people. If you enjoy looking at ads for 10-20 seconds at a time before clicking on the next ad, then this is a great opportunity. Many people actually do enjoy this. In fact, some teens can make a good part time income from online surfing. So if this type of work suits you it is a great way to earn money, surfing on your computer all day.

Some sites offer you emails to read instead of surfing to earn money. However, with whichever surfing method you choose the pay is generally very minimal for each website surfed. It can take a while to accumulate any type of real income.

If you are looking for an alternative way to make some money, take a look at affiliate marketing. This could prove to be more lucrative than trying to earn money surfing.

Affiliate marketing is basically promoting a product for a person or a company. Then when someone else purchases through your affiliate link, you make a commission. Some commissions can be huge, as much as 80% on a product. So don't dismiss this as a viable way to earn money, instead of trying to earn money surfing.

If you are looking to make more than pocket change, affiliate marketing could be the perfect vessel for you. You don't even need to have your own website either. It is very easy to sign up with an affiliate program through Clickbank or Amazon and start promoting their products. You will receive your own affiliate link and this is how you will be credited for sales. The program manager tracks the sales through all the affiliate sales and usually once a month will send out your commission checks. The concept of affiliate marketing is very simple.

The trickiest part is simply driving traffic to your affiliate link. This is why many people start their own free blog, you can add your links here and write about the product. If you place a review on the site with honest opinions you can build up trust in your customers. Then you can add products that complement each other and make additional money. If you keep each blog on one separate topic you will have customers that are ready to buy. You can build several of these mini sites on different subjects and have income coming in from various angles.

So if affiliate marketing sounds better than trying to earn money surfing you might want to take a closer look at what we have to offer. Find out how easy it is to become successful at affiliate marketing. Of course if you are happy to earn money surfing, then go right ahead. My suggestion is that you combine the two like the top affiliate marketers out there.
