How can I make money on line with Affiliate Marketing?

Affiliate marketing is like any business. It takes time and determination. Like any business you must be prepared to work hard.

But what is it?

It is a program where you earn commissions by selling other companies products. You build a business on line and people buy from your website.

You will get a small percentage of whatever is sold through the links that you share.

What is a Link?

A link is either a word or picture that will take you to another website. These are used to entice people to buy. Here is an example.


Product pictures are also used.  An example of a product picture from Amazon looks like this. Lets say I want to sell computers, here is my link to Amazon.

How much can I make?

There are a lot of people who have made Affiliate marketing their sole source of income. It can be very profitable, however you must work hard. This is not a get rich quick scheme. You must look at it like any business. Hard work. determination and long hours. The rewards are commensurate with the hours you put in.

You can make recurring commission , which is commission earned again and again, or one off sales.  Commissions can range from 3% to 50% depending on the product or company that you work with. It can be more or less, some are lower and some are higher.

How do I get started ? 

Look for a reputable group. One that will help you learn and earn at the same time. My “go to” group , and I belong to a few, is Wealthy Affiliates.
