What is Affiliate Marketing and how can you make money with it?

On this blog, I aim to show various ways of making money online and doing so free.

I usually talk about taking surveys and offers to make money, writing articles, and even clicking ads. Well today, I’m here to talk about affiliate marketing.

Affiliate Marketing might sound like a big confusing term, however the process is actually very simple. It is basically providing leads or sales to sellers and being compensated for it. The image to the top left was taken from Wikipedia and it demonstrates the process of affiliate marketing.

Wikipedia also defines affiliate marketing as “an Internet-based marketing practice in which a business rewards one or more affiliates for each visitor or customer brought about by the affiliate’s marketing efforts.”

At first, I was very scared to take the plunge into affiliate marketing. It sounded like something way more than I could handle or even understand. But the more and more I kept researching about it, I realized, it definitely wasn’t that hard, and with the way this blog, Make Money Online Free – Testimonial of a Skeptic, was growing, I could definitely make a few extra bucks with it.

The most important thing with affiliate marketing is finding a steady source of traffic. This can be done in several ways and it can be easier to make money with affiliate marketing if you have a popular blog or website that gets organic search engine traffic. However, other methods of promoting and getting traffic include, paid search engine marketing (like Google Adwords), and email marketing (although this is sometimes seen as spam).

So with the help of a friend of mine who recommended a great affiliate marketing company called MaxBounty, I decided to give it a try.

Sometime in the middle of last month, I joined, and by the end of the month, I had made almost $100! I was very pleasantly surprised with my results and I will continue to venture into this even further! As soon as I get my payment, I’ll also post proof of it.

Shareasale.com and Market Leverage are also some really good affiliate marketing websites to sign up with if you’re interested in making money with affiliate marketing.

So I guess that’s all for now, if you have any questions about affiliate marketing, be sure to leave a comment and let me know, and I’ll do my best to answer. As time progresses, I’ll also update on my ongoing experience and earnings with affiliate marketing!

    Is it really possible to make money with affiliate marketing?
    I am going to have a baby in a couple of months and need to be at home. Before baby comes I wanted to find something online I could do to make some extra money to help my husband out.
    I’ve watched some videos on affiliate marketing and understand the concept, however I don’t understand the part about getting a website or having a link. I have no idea how to do either?
    Help.

    @Julie,

    Yes it IS really possible to make money with affiliate marketing.

    Congrats on your baby first of all! And it’s very admirable of you to want to help out your husband while you’re at home. Affiliate marketing takes a lot of work, over a period of time, and a bit of trial and error to find out what is working for you. The best way to do affiliate marketing is by having a blog or website that you develop to be popular on the internet (preferably on search engines). You can “get” a website by creating a free one on any free site, however, it really is recommended to purchase your own domain name and hosting if you plan on staying in it for a long time. It’s just easier in the long run starting that way instead of having to transfer everything over (like I had to). I wish I could help you step by step with all that but I just REALLY don’t have the time. I’m sorry. With full time work, full time school, being a wife, etc, I barely have time to even work on my own blog! However, there is a lot of useful information here on my blog I’ve written in the past, and also a lot of other information online that will be able to help you! I hope that answer helped somewhat… :/
