Affiliate marketing is on the top three of most lists on how to earn and make money online and for good reasons. First, you are dealing with actual products and services unlike other online money-making techniques where you don't exactly know if you are promoting something or not. Second, you can choose which affiliate product to promote. This is very important most especially if you are using your own website or blog to promote the products. And third, it does not take too much of your time. For instance, if you have a fairly popular blog, all you really have to do is place your affiliate links and affiliate banner ads on it and you are good to go.

To those uninitiated to the business of affiliate marketing, here is how it works in the simplest of terms. If you have any experience of selling company products in the offline world where you get a commission for every sale you make, it's pretty much the same in the internet. There are several aspects though to online affiliate marketing that aren't available in its offline counterpart. One obvious difference is in the marketing department. In offline sales, you have nearly zero marketing options. But online, you have hundred of platforms where you can promote what you are selling. These platforms include blogs, stand alone websites, social media sites and a whole lot more. Affiliate marketing is about selling as many affiliate products as possible and earning commissions from those sales.

One of the advantages of affiliate marketing over other ways on making money online is that you have the choice if you are going to use a website or not. Some affiliate marketers don't use a website while others exclusively uses a website as their main tool. But if you are just starting out, it is best that you set up a blog or a website. It will serve as your business headquarters of sort. You see, the marketers who aren't using websites to promote products are very experienced online marketers. They are using programs and softwares that they created or bought from other marketers. You need more experience before you can effectively get involved on these things.

Once you have your blog or website up and you have written and posted enough content on it, then you can start promoting your affiliate products on it. There are literally hundreds of affiliate companies out there that you can join. All you have to do is choose which is most appropriate to the theme and topics of your site or blog. You can follow some or all of the following ways of promoting an affiliate products on a blog or website.

1) Place affiliate links in your content. You need basic HTML skills to be able to accomplish this. It's simply creating anchor links. If for instance there's text in an article in your blog that says "computer software", you can use that text as anchor text for a computer software product on say Amazon.com. You will have to make sure though that your affiliate ID is integrated in the link.

2) Display affiliate banner ads. This is often very easy to do. It's merely copying some code and pasting it on your site.

3) Write a review about an affiliate product or service.

Affiliate marketing is a very good way to make money online as long as you play your cards right and promote your products to the right people and at the right time.
