    Affiliate Marketing! - Be Your Own Boss

    The dream of many is to be their own boss. The prospect of large amounts of money combined with a flexible work schedule is tempting. But stepping out into new groung can be daunting for some. They are concerned with start-up costs and leaving any secure job can be scary. One solution to this problem is start a home business. The simple truth of the matter is that starting a home business is about the most cost effective solution there is. All that is needed are three things:

    A spare room,
    A computer with internet access,
    A phone line.

    That's it, and that in essence is your office right there.
    Getting started as an affiliate marketer is a fantastic way to build an online business. This
    opportunity gives you the option of selling products and services, all at almost zero

    When you have determined what area you are going to enter, make sure your skill level is up there. Don't just try and sell anything just for the sake of selling a product or service. You need to choose something relevant to you, an interest you have, a hobby, etc. It's easier to sell something when you are familiar with your niche.

    A lot of people will choose affiliate programs from browsing through the search engines. Your aim is to get as much exposure to your site as possible. Someone who is able to do website design can register with the likes of yahoo publisher thus enabling them to get traffic with the aid of the yahoo search engine.

    Another technique is to attract visitors to other sites. Many top brand names such as eBay
    and Amazon offer affiliate marketing as a way to create income. You help send them visitors, they purchase, you get paid. It's definetely worth checking out as they help you increase your online presence, generate revenue and the more you make will mean that they make more in turn.

    Let's take a look at another way your site can generate revenue. If you allow Google and
    Yahoo to place ads on your site and people click on these ads, you make money. And the more ads that get clicked on the more money you will make. All costs and ad placements are taken care of auomatically and only ads related to your niche are placed on your site.

    Don't think you can't get started because of the cost involved to start. As I already pointed out all you need is a computer, somewhere to put it and an internet connection then you are all setup. Work it around your current job, or simply choose whatever amount of time each day you wish to commit to.

    The main thing is to stick with it. Don't get discouraged when you don't see results the first day. Remember it will take time but like any business, if you put in the effort it will work and as it starts to grow you will get more encouraged by the day. If you've wanted to work for yourself but kept putting it off, step out and quit making excuses. Take advantage of the awesome opportunity before you in regards to the internet.

    There has never been a time when such an opportunity has been before us. We have the
    technology to reach the world in an instant. Let's take full advantage and see what lies
    before us. If you don't take the first step, you will never know.

    My small brain get small spin after reading this useless thread, I am still trying to find what this thread is all about?


      Affiliate Marketing - Don't Fear!

      To put it simply Paul, it's a little encourgement for those who are afraid to step out and try affiliate marketing. There are many people who would love to be able to quit their jobs and enjoy the dream of being their own boss. Most people are attracted by the idea of working for themselves. But many give up too soon. Two obstacles that stop people from progressing further are money and risk.

      In the offline world starting a small business of any kind requires large capital. Premises, stock, equipment, staff, advertising and other expenses all add, and before you even begin large amounts of money have already left your pocket.

      Many businesses are high risk starting off because of this. Statistics show that 90% of small businesses fail in their first year, so even if you do get the capital to begin, the risk of failure is high. Any revenue generated needs to be re-invested for the first couple of years before any major profits are to be realized. This can take between five - seven years which is too long for many. This is why affiliate marketing is so popular and why it attracts many.

      As an affiliate marketer, you choose a product to promote from a company, also known as a merchant. This can be services, goods, digital products, etc. and based on your sales you get a percentage of each sale, which can be as much as 75%. The amount you can earn is based on the amount of effort you put in to promoting of the services or goods.

      At the beginning it can be challenging, it takes time and effort to build a business. But it is rewarding and the more time you can give the morerewards you will see and in a shorter time span. There are some tips you can do to speed up the process.

      Remember there are thousands of affiliate programs to select from. A good idea here is to choose one that is relevant to you. A hobby for instance, this will be something you will already be knowledgeable in and will give you more confidence and also make you seem more authoritative. This builds trust with your customers. They feel like they are getting value from someone who knows what they want.

      When you build your website it will be positive and personal. People will pick up on the fact that you are a genuine person who has their best interests at heart. If you don't know much about your product or service then your site will come accross as boring and uninteresting, with little or no value being offered to the customer.

      Don't be too quick to put up a site with lots of banners as this looks cheap, confusing and ugly to your visitors and potential customers. Choosing a couple of banners and placing them strategically will enhance the site.

      Be careful when choosing affiliate programs, there is no one perfect affiliate program. They all look good at first glance. Each site is filled with fantastic testimonials, some will be genuine, others will not. It's a matter of doing some research before jumping in.

      Without a doubt affiliate marketing is a fantastic way to generate revenue. The risk is very low and start up costs are zero. It can be a challenge at first but remember to stick with building your business and do not give up when nothing happens in the first day. It can and probably will take a couple of months at least before any considerable gains are made.

      Choose a market you know and are interested in, build a site that is attractive for your visitors with easy navigation. Do not overuse banners. Keep the site clean, crisp, sharp and uncluttered. Don't look for the perfect affiliate program, it doesn't exist. Work your business, treat it like a business and don't quit.


        Nicely Explained, the affiliate is such a technique through which a company can increase their sales very rapidly. Also, it opens great opportunities for people looking for ways to make good and quick money.

              It could be scam. There are thousands of such landing pages designed on the Internet. There are few legit sites, however, it is difficult to trust either of them as you can't blindly assume it to be legit. Make sure that you Google before you decide if the website is scam or not.


                You can try and look for some reviews of the site before you take any decision about it as not all of them but some of the reviews will give you some information regarding the legitimacy of the website which is indeed helpful.
