What Is Affiliate Marketing?

If youíre interested in earning a few extra dollars each month, and possibly even quitting your day job one day, then affiliate marketing may be the answer youíre looking for.

But what exactly is affiliate marketing? And how can it help you earn a living without having a day job?

In a nutshell, affiliate marketing is where you sell the product of someone else in exchange for a commission. Much like an offline salesman sells a product and receives a small percentage of the purchase price.

This may sound impossible if youíve never heard of the concept before, but it is definitely not a scam. In fact, most big companies have affiliates Ė companies like Amazon, eBay, and many others.

However, there can also be a lot of hype and big promises when it comes to affiliate marketing. While in some ways itís easier to start an affiliate marketing business when you compare it to an offline business, it still does take a lot of hard work and effort.

But donít let that discourage you. Because it really is possible to earn the kind of incomes that are promised Ė itís just harder work than many websites make it out to be.

One of the keys to affiliate marketing is knowing which product to pick, and how to market it. Once youíve decided on a particular method, itís important not to give up early. Affiliate marketing can take time to make you a lot of money, but like most things in life, persistence will bring its rewards.
