Need a Job? Become an Affiliate Marketer

As of now, we live in an economy where nearly 15 million people are unemployed. Companies are saving money by firing, and hiring as very few people as possible. so people who are in need of dough must get out of their comfort zone and get creative, and this is one way to do just that. Affiliate marketing is a great tool for those of you who are looking to make a living, or extra income. The profit potential for this is unlimited, but don’t expect to make a million your first year. there are people who do, and they work very hard at it and love what they do. this article will give you the basic information about affiliate marketing and how you can use it to make a living.

This is very simple. let me say that again, this is very simple. Affiliate marketing consists of businesses, an affiliate and consumers. An affiliate, the middle men, must do all they can to send online consumers to a company’s website, such as Amazon. The affiliates make money when the online consumer buys the product.

First, you have to find a company to hook you up with businesses. there are many companies out there that do just that. But like other businesses, there is the good, the bad and the ugly. you want to go for the good ones, and that’s partially the reason why I’m writing this, other that explaining concisely what affiliate marketers do.

Here’s what’s going to happen in sequence:

1. you have found the right company, and you decide to give them a call. An associate will explain to you their fee structure, what affiliate marketers do, and how much you could potentially make.

2. you reach the conclusion that it’s a good idea to join their program, and you give them your payment information.

3. The next day they send you emails containing links to websites dedicated to training novice affiliate marketers.

4. you spend a week reading everything and watching every video until your website is complete. (You can finally get to the dirty work when your website is complete. there are many ways you can lure buyers into your website, and I will explain one of them later on. )

The good thing about this type of business is that you don’t have to spend much time to gain leverage. What I mean by that is that, you can spend 7 hours a week doing what needs to be done and you will make money, I guarantee you. I have recently started, and I’m making a few bucks here and there, but I know that I will earn much more within the coming months as I gain more experience. Also I forgot to mention, running your own affiliate marketing is technically running your own business.

One way to lure in consumers to your website is via article marketing. this is, essentially, just writing an article that recommends a product you’re trying to sell, but genuinely. For example, you decide to write about the new kindle that just came out. you have just bought it and you are very satisfied with it, so you decide to write a review about it on ezines. you write what’s on your mind, and at the end of it you write your website’s address, so people can click on it. Let’s just say that an interested buyer has found your recommendation intriguing, which propound a click on the link to your website. once the person is on your website, he or she will click on the kindle link which will take him or her to Amazon. if the person decides to buy the kindle, you will receive a percentage on the price he or she paid for the kindle. you make more money as more people buy the kindle.

So there you have it. this is, basically, what affiliate marketing is all about. many people and companies try to keep information like this to themselves so that they could lure in interested-people by how much they could make. I’m just giving you the information I think is necessary for you to make the right decision. Affiliate marketing is easy, but then again, it isn’t for everyone. I’m an extrovert, so I have an easy time putting my thoughts into words and writing them, but this article is not about me. this article is for those of you who are desperate and hungry for money.
