Affiliate marketing is truly one of the best businesses in the world. Here's why:
- Low overhead
- No inventory
- No employees
- Products of your own optional
- No customer service
All you do is direct traffic to your affiliate link and you get paid. It cannot get any more simpler than that. Thousands of people are making a living online just doing this.
One way to make a lot of cash from affiliate marketing is to create a content rich website. You can use this website to build your list and insert contextual affiliate links. What are contextual affiliate links? It simply means keywords within your text which are hyperlinked, directing to an affiliate page.
Another way to generate traffic to an affiliate website is to use Pay Per Click advertising avenues like Google Adwords, MSN Adcenter and Yahoo Search Marketing. This avenue has the ability to generate targeted traffic within less than one hour. However, you do need a budget for this and it can eat into your cash if you’re not experienced. The key with Adwords is not to be afraid to lose a little money initially. Once you get the gist of it, it is not hard to lower your costs of advertising and increase your profits.
The last option to profit from affiliate marketing would be to become the affiliate manager. That is, you manage affiliates instead of being the affiliate. It is a little-known fact in the Internet marketing world that the product owner is the one that makes the most money, simply because he has an affiliate salesforce working for him day and night.
