Are Affiliate Programs the Best Way to Make Money Online?
I see so many different ways to make money online and I am still not convinced that these programs are for real.Â There are so many of them that I think even the greatest of webmasters don't know how to cipher them out.Â Can you really start pouring thousands of dollars in to your bank account in just a few short weeks?Â My answer to that would have to be a big fat NO!Â I have yet to find a program on line that this has actually happened.Â Maybe it does happen to a few lucky people, but it has definitely not happened to me, and I can tell you that it isn't from a lack of trying.
Affiliate marketing is suppose to be one of the fastest ways to make money online. If you're looking to work from home on your computer and starting a website, the experts say that this is the way to start.Â There is no physical product that you are working with, so you don't actually have to put your hands on anything.Â There is no tangible product.Â Everything that you are trying to sell is either down loadable or you just join and become a member to actually work with whatever the vendor or publisher is offering.Â They say that this is the best way to start because you have little investment out of your own pocket to begin.Â To become an affiliate is easy because all you have to do is go to an affiliate that you like, and just sign up.Â It's that easy.Â
You start with researching a bunch of products that you can find through websites like Click Bank, Commission Junction, Link Share, just to name a few.Â There are a lot of them out there, but these are the bigger ones to consider.Â You won't make as much money with these as you would going directly to the publisher and signing up, but they do track all your sales for you and then they send you your money at certain intervals.Â They keep track of all your commissions by simply placing a code on your website.Â It is a very easy thing to do and it is in my opinion a better guarantee that you will get paid.Â They send you the money for any sales that occur; you don't have to do anything else.Â You don't have to worry about getting paid because they take care of all that for you.Â To me this is the easiest way to set up an affiliate program.Â You just pick the one you like and then just start promoting it.Â It is that simple.
I have believed in Paid Surveys for the longest time now.Â There is no selling involved when you join one of these programs and you can work at it on your own pace.Â You don't need a website to do paid surveys; all you have to have is a desire to make money and an Internet connection.Â You won't get rich by doing paid surveys, but it has helped me to pay the bills and save some money for my kid's educations.Â I'll write more on the subject in future articles for those of you that want to know more about affiliate marketing.
To your success and happiness!
