Its Hard to invest when you don't have the extra money to invest with. Affiliate marketing is one of the main ways I earn income to help fund my investments. There are so many ways to earn extra income, so by no means is this the only ways or even the best way. I just find it to be suitable for me because although it takes some time to get started and get things set up, once done you can literally begin earning virtually hands free. Another great perk is i don't need to beg or chase down my family and frieneds in order to make money.
What is Affiliate Marketing?
Affiliate Marketing is the process of building and maintaining a website/blog that reviews or promotes a product or service by writing content on your websites blog. This content has links to an online store such as Amazon or 1000’s of other retailers where readers would then purchase the product and you earn income through commissions.
The more often you direct visitors to your website, the more income you potentially could earn. An effective no-cost way to drive (visitor) traffic to your website is through the search engines. Google, Bing & Yahoo are the big 3.The goal is to get your website ranked on the first page of Google for your targeted keyword (e.g. [product name] review). When this is accomplished, large amounts of search engine traffic will end up at your website and thus earn more revenue. Havinga good foundation on how affiliate marketing works and the techniques used to attract an audience to your website is most important.
