Affiliate Marketing is one of the newest Internet money makers. Literally millions of people who wish for to own their own business and call their own shots have begun into the affiliate marketing field.

Some have tried tools that allow them to set up free campaigns; but the most profitable are the people who develop their own websites using a website hosting service. Using a paid hosting service facilitates you to have your own unique URL or domain name to put up a presence on the Internet. Money making then comes from developing a website that promotes a different winning company  products and earn a commission on each sale.

From a technical standpoint, you make money when a customer clicks the link on your website and orders the product.  The company that owns the product knows that the trade came from your website, because of a tracking code that is embedded into the link that the customer clicked on your site.

Advantages of affiliate marketing

Internet money earning capability is nearly infinite when you have a sales and marketing machine driving customers to your website. And, one of the focal Advantages of this type of business is that you do not have to shoulder the task for customer service. This means that

1    You do not have to capture the order so there is no need to invest in online shop cart technology

2    You are not answerable for managing inventory

3    You do not have to finish the orders or transport them to the customer

Procuring affiliate products to promote

There are a few ways to go about finding affiliate products to promote. Some companies, like Amazon.Com for example, have affiliate programs that are free of charge to join and provide merchandising tools to use on your website. While these programs are turn-key to put into action, they also generally only pay a few percentage points in commission, which makes it hard to be a truly winning Internet money making venture. 

The extra profitable affiliate programs are those that need a little more work on your part, in that you have to set up the products on your site and there are not a group of integrated tools available. The up-side of the additional work is a much superior level of commission. And, once set up, these programs pretty much run themselves on your website. All you need to do is drive customers to your website that are interested in purchasing the items you are selling.
