The internet is the greatest marketing tool ever created. It’s also the most powerful and profitable tool in existence. In this article I’m going to show you how to use it to make money online, without having to spend any money at all.
Affiliate marketing is one of the fastest growing businesses online today. In fact, the majority of new businesses are affiliate based. The reason for this is that it’s very simple to get started, it’s very profitable, and it’s very easy to scale your business up as your profits grow.
So, what exactly is affiliate marketing? Basically, affiliate marketing is when you promote someone else’s product, or service, and get paid a commission for every sale you make. So if you sell a product for $100, and you make 10 sales, you would earn $1000. This is great, because you don’t have to stock products, or ship them, or worry about customer service, etc. You simply promote their product, and they take care of everything!
Now, let me explain how to do this. First of all, you need to find a product or service that people want. Then, you need to find a company that sells that product or service. After that, you need to write an article about the product or service. Once you’ve written your article, you need to submit it to article directories like EzineArticles, GoArticles, etc. Once your article is published, you will then place a link to the company’s website in your resource box. Finally, you will need to drive traffic to your site by using free methods such as social bookmarking, blogging, forums, etc.
Once you’ve done all of these things, you will start to see a lot of traffic coming to your site. If you’ve done everything correctly, you should be making a profit within 2 weeks. Now, obviously, there is a lot more involved than just writing articles and driving traffic. But, this is a very good way to start out.
