Affiliate Marketing

Affiliate Marketing is one way to way to make some cash on the internet. You are promoting someone else's product or service and in return you get a certain percentage of each sale that is generated from your promotion. There are many companies that are happy to do this because it's free advertising for them. This is usually accomplished by providing you (the affiliate) with a special tracking link to the company's website and if a sale is made you will receive credit and get paid your commision. The upside is you don't have to come up with your own product or service to sell. The downside is you (as an affiliate) generally don't get paid for referrals. You only receive a set amount per sale and there is no "mark-up" because all sales are made by the company, therefore you'll want to refer a lot of traffic your target company's website and there are a lot of affiliates out there making a lot of money.

Affiliate programs directories are one way to find affiliate programs, another method is large affiliate networks that provide the platform for dozens or even hundreds of advertisers. The third option is to check the target website itself for a reference to their affiliate program. Websites, which offer an affiliate program often, have a link titled "affiliate program", "affiliates", "referral program" or "webmasters" somewhere on their website, usually in the footer or "About" section of the site. Even if all those methods seem to indicate that a site does not have an affiliate program, it could still be the case that there exists a non-public affiliate program. The only way to find out for sure, is to contact the site owner directly and ask.

There is no catch. Your not signing up for anything. Your not going to be placed on a list and the report is really free. What you do with it is totally up to you. I will tell you that there is a pitch at the end to buy a membership. I did and it was well worth it, but you don't have to if you don't want to and you can still use all the information in the report and get yourself started as an affiliate marketer. Good Luck and if you do take me up on my offer and send an Email, please put "send my free report" in the subject line and you should receive it within 24 hours.
