1. Affiliate Marketing
This is how to set yourself up as an affiliate marketer
1. Becoming an Affiliate
Firstly you need to sign up as an affiliate with individual
companies or affiliate networks that represent several
companies. These affiliate networks usually have a wide range of
products and services to choose from and offer everything
from e-books to networking products to sell. They also administer your account in such a way as to
provide you with up to date earning and traffic statistics.
2. Get Products and Services to Sell
Next you need to identify the products or companies whose
products you would like to promote.
You can do this by either choosing the most popular, hottest
selling products or the ones that you have an interest in or
are knowledgeable about.
3. Selling and Marketing
Once you've got your unique affiliate link, which you'll get
from the affiliate network, for each product that you want
to sell you need to start getting it all over the internet.
This link can then be promoted by,
1. advertising it
One of the most effective and most popular advertising
models involves you setting up a Google Adwords account
You then purchase pay-per-click keywords on which determine
when, where and how often your Google Adsense ads appear all
over the internet.
Your affiliate tracking code will be embedded in the Adsense
link which will send buyers directly to the affiliate
You will then earn commission on each sale made.
This is the best way of getting massive targetted traffic to
the merchant's site where your prospects will hopefully make
However, whilst you may be generating traffic don't forget
that each click your ad gets costs you money and if you are
spending more on Adwords advertising than you are generating
in commission you will be out of pocket soon.
2. having it included in someone else’s website
3. using it in an e-mail newsletter - direct marketing
2. Start Selling on eBay
eBay is the hottest e-commerce site on the web today, and
for good reason...
* More than 2 million people visit eBay.com every single
day, spending an
average of two hours navigating through eBay's pages and
* More than $1,000 in sales happen on eBay every single
* 72% of eBay users have incomes in excess of $50,000 per
year--so they come ready to spend!
And while those listings will cost you only pennies to place
on eBay's pages, you gain immediate access to millions of
buyers who are looking for items just like yours.
3. Start Selling on Purpose Built Websites
One of the easiest ways of setting up an online business is
to buy into a ready made store front that will be populated
with thousands of digital products and services all embedded
with your unique affiliate tracking code
So everytime a purchase is made from your site you are
credited with the commission.
So there you have it, employ one or all three methods to
launch a legitimate and sustainable online business.
