Best Work From Home Opportunities: Affiliate Marketing
I LOVE affiliate marketing! Affiliate marketing is where you get paid to promote other people's products. Merchants will pay you a percentage of all sales generated when visitors to your website click through a special link and make a purchase. There is tracking software that allows you to view the sales you generate and commissions you earn in real time. Large companies like Amazon, eBay, and many other merchants have affiliate programs with products in any niche you can imagine.
It's very easy and inexpensive to start your own website or blog using a software program called WordPress. In fact, I've even recently posted a WordPress tutorial. All you need is a domain name, webhosting, and you're off and running!
All you have to do is create quality content (such as articles and/or videos) on a regular basis that people would enjoy reading or watching. It could be tips, advice, reviews, tutorials, news, recipes, photos, videos, and more. Find a niche that you're passionate about and has advertisers spending money in it.
There is a website called Affilorama that has over 100 free video lessons that will teach you how to make money with affiliate programs. Affilorama was started by an internet marketer named Mark Ling. I've been through many of Mark's courses over the years. Anything with his name on it gets high praise from me!
