The Fastest Way to Get Started in an Online Business – Affiliate Marketing


Are you ready to start making money online right NOW? You don’t want to wait anymore, you will learn more about the right way to do it later, you’ll build your online business later, but just want to get started before another day has gone by?

If this sounds like you, take a look at Affiliate Marketing. What is Affiliate Marketing? Basically, you help someone else who already has a product or service sell that product or service. If you are the person who gets someone to buy it, you’ll get a cut. For example, there is an Amazon Affiliate Program. If your friend just went to the Amazon website and bought something, Amazon would make all of the money. If on the other hand you were an Amazon affiliate, and told your friend about a product…and they went and bought it at Amazon though the link you gave them, you’d get a percentage of the sale.

So basically you don’t have to have anything, and you can still make money. You don’t need a product, website, or anything really. Of course, the more people who click on your link to go to that Amazon link and buy from it, the more you’ll make, but this is just the beginning.

It’s definitely the quickest way, as you don’t need to spend time creating a product, a website, or anything else for that matter.

Now that you know what an Affiliate Program is, you might want to know what types of companies have Affiliate Programs (besides Amazon’s Affiliate Program of course.) Many companies out there have affiliate programs. You’d be surprised how many companies have affiliate programs. From companies you know that have stores near you (such as Target, Macy’s, Walmart, and more), to others that are online only companies (Orbitz, Amazon, Overstock, etc.), to small companies you’ve never heard of, but have great products.

So if you are the one who gets someone to buy something – from a store they might already know about – you’ll make a cut.  The more people you share the products (with your link) with, the more money you’ll make.

You can become an affiliate of all of these programs for free, and there are PLENTY of them.  In a future post I’ll share a bunch of my favorite affiliate programs.
