Affiliate Marketing- is the fastest growing business model online.

This is when a merchant allows you to market their product for a percentage of the sale.

When you send traffic to their site and the visitor purchases a product you receive a commission.

Affiliate programs are free to join and can be a primary or secondary business model for building your affiliate MLM online business.

Affiliate Marketing is Direct Selling Online
Affiliate marketing is very similar to direct sales in the offline world but it works a lot faster, with less effort, works while you sleep and you don't have to put up with prospecting or rejections.

Imagine you could set up a booth where people could purchase your product or service right in the middle of the mall right in the midst of passing traffic.

Many will stop by just to look and some will actually buy. Every time they buy from you get a check in the mail without actually having to be there to make the sale.

Even better imagine the mall be open 24/7 with a constant flood of ongoing traffic. Lets say tens of thousands of people passed by and 5% of all the people that walked by actually bought something. What do you think this will do for your cash flow?

How to Make Money With Affiliate Marketing
Just like any other business affiliate marketing is all about sales. In order to sell to more people you have to get your offer or presentation in front of more prospects. In affiliate marketing is all about traffic, traffic, and more traffic.

Some affiliate programs will offer you actual websites to promote as a squeeze page. Many will just offer links. Until you get your own fully operational website place these links wherever possible.

Promote your links in forums, blogs, community sites, and personally written articles to get your self established and begin to drive traffic to your affiliate pages.

Converting Visitors Into Buyers
Not only is traffic important but your conversions are ultimately what counts. In the direct selling world picture prospecting all day everyday but coming home with no sales.

Traffic is the prospects but how many of the prospects buy (the sales) is what counts. With this being said don't expect all of you visitors to convert right away.

Affiliate Money is Still Made in the Follow Up
Just as in the world of one to one sales many people do not buy on the first offer. It takes repetition and rapport building in many cases unless you are selling a regular commodity product.

Even with this method the key to repeat sales is to stay in the minds of your customers. Therefore you must always have a way to drive them back to your website

Even in the general commodity market you should still capture an email address for special offers. Email Marketing is still essential in affiliate marketing.
