Why Affiliate Marketing

Affiliate Marketing Make Money Online with Affiliate Marketing…

Affiliate Marketing simply means promoting other people or companies products or services and making a commission off that product or service. This could mean many things.. How to e-books, tv’s, coaching, online shopping. This could be just about anything you can imagine. The list is endless when it comes to Affiliate Marketing.

For me, it was a pretty easy decision, with so much to learn in this wide world of Internet Marketing. Don’t get me wrong, it is a work in progress in whatever you choose to do, but with Affiliate Marketing there are a few things you don’t have to worry about.. Like for instance a product. You don’t have to create a product, it’s already there for you. You just promote someone else’s product or services..

You don’t have to worry about customer service and having a support system. What ever you promote will or should have those systems in place. And another thing, refunds you don’t have to fool with that either. Someone else does.. Their will be someone out there that does not like what you promote.  that’s life! Get over it..

Now in saying that…don’t get me wrong.  Make sure what ever you decide to promote {niche} will be good for others. I somethings think, if it’s good enough for me and it works it should be good for others…meaning, do your research, check things out. I often buy the product to see if they are good, try it out, take it for a test drive.

You should be a good Affiliate Marketer, so consider products or services you have personally tested, enjoy having and have worked for you. Or,you have good evidence that they are of high-quality. If the product is something you believe in, it just makes it easier for you to promote.

Think about it… What do you like to do? What are the things you enjoy? Do you have any hobbies?? Chances are, you will be better at promoting what you already know about. If not, that’s okay. There are so much information on the internet these days it’s pretty easy to research what ever it is you want to do. There are many affiliate networks that you can sign up for FREE. Yes they are all FREE! Check them out and get ideas

Here’s Just a Few

  1. Clickbank.com– a very Huge marketplace, has everything under the sun. You would sign up as an affiliate.
  2. cj.com– {commission junction} has all kinds of shops and services. You should sign up as a publisher and there are guides to help you with this.
  3. linkshare.com– has lots of shops and services. Sign up as a publisher, it’s a lot like commission junction.
  4. Payspree.com– you would sign up as  an affiliate.
  5. jvzoo.com– you would sign up as an affiliate.
  6. amazon.com– sign up as an affiliate.


All of these networks are free to join. They all have different terms and conditions, be sure to read all. Commission rates are different in each network. This is just a few affiliate networks, there are many more and I will most likely add to this list sometimes on down the road. For now this is a good way to get ideas, pick a niche that you will be happy with.

Now, I’m thinking… with the price of gas these days, more and more people are shopping online. Might want to promote something that they are looking for, something they want or something you like. Just a thought..just saying.. I hope this will help those who are new to Affiliate Marketing, it will give  you some ideas  on how to get started. It is a start and you have a long journey ahead of you so take it slow and easy and you’ll do just fine…


Get More Ideas For Your Niche…Google Keyword Tool..

It is a good idea to use google.com/keywordresearchtool..This is a very Nifty free tool for you to use when searching for a niche and your keywords for that niche. It can also help with your Domain name. To do this you can do a Google Search, key in google.com/keywordresearchtool. Most likely, it will take you to a page that you will have No idea what to click on…just go down the page until you see Keyword Tool-Google Adwords, that’s what you need to click on.

Everyone uses this Free tool and you should too. Just start playin around with it. Key in a phrase…see how many people are looking for that product or service. Your looking for Low competition with High searches. You also want to check from what countries those searches are coming from. Do this with different products within your niche.

Lets say your into fishing. I’m sure you have a lot of fishing stories you could write about. You might use a phase like how to catch a big fish. Now, I know you’re laughing…but this is how it’s done. Think about it, you have fishing lines, fishing bait, rod and reels, fishing tackle and the next thing you know..camping gear and the list goes on. This is sometimes called a sub-niche, a niche within a niche. You have fishing and you have camping, the two could go together or you could have two different blogs and link them together. Hook line and sinker.com (hooklineandsinker.com) Now that’s a cool Domain name, problem is..is anyone using this as a keyword phase? That’s what you need to find out. This is only an example I have used to give you an idea.

So, start using googles free tool..it can help with a niche (product) key words and a Domain name..

Hope this helps, feel free to leave a comment..let me know what your thinkin..

    Hi Jan, you have a lot of good information listed, it will be a big help, I am a affiliate marketer, I promote a lot of sites, however the one thing and the biggest is how do we get paid for promoting other people products, they always say they will pay but don’t.
    What do you recommend we do to ensure we the affiliate get paid.?

    • Jan December 29, 2012 at 10:44 pm #

      Hi Willie,
      It all depends on who your promoting for and what products. Clickbank,jvzoo,ect. I always promote what I know works for others. Contact the person or company you signed up with. Some will only pay after you have made a certian amount(100.00) Sign up for paypal.
      Let me know if this helps..Do not promote for just anyone, get to know them & their products.

    Great content, Janice. You have listed some very reliable affiliate programs that enable you to target a number of consumer markets, like Amazon.

    Love the fishing analogy. As a marketer, you are putting the solution in front of someone seeking that solution. You want a certain type of fish, you go to them and dangle the bait.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Very good share indeed! Linkshare and CJ are some of my favorites to promote because I like to promote companies that have something to lose and value their reputation. I also like to promote high end affliiate programs that I will be writing about at some point to which I don’t want to hijack your site by naming them here but you can if you like…thanks for the great share!

      Yes Linkshare and CJ were one one my first in Affiliate Marketing, they are
      very good to start off with. High end sounds good, just have to find the Traffic
      for it..That goes with all. Feel free to come again, your comments are always
