You see online, there are many marketers who struggle with such things as self confidence, self doubt and also a lack of knowledge about marketing and other technical areas of an online business management, they find it hard to relate to the world of an online marketer at first, particulalry when they are not accustomed to it and area scared of it.

But with confidence in your own abilities and your business sense, you can achieve what you want with an online business of your own choosing, excelling with what you already know and using them skills to further your ideas and further brand yourself as an expert are the main objective of any online venture.

Affiliate Earnings: What Are Yours Like?

Are your affiliate earnings what you hoped to achieve when you first started out with affiliate programs or ones that promised to earn or be a high paying affiliate program?

You are not alone, it seems that more and more people start out with good intentions of earning revenue from the affiliate networks, but they often get misguided or just fail at every turn, I see myself slowly picking things up from what I have learnt and am building some regular income from a few well placed affiliate promotions, it does take time, but you can do it with a little patience too!

By taking a look in the affiliate directories for any number of affiliate program you are opening up the potential to earn from that affiliate promotion, if you take a course in affiliate marketing or find a free course online, then you are going to be on the road to building an income online for your troubles.

What you may have to consider is when weighing up whether to get a webhost account and a domain name you may have to justify it by seeing it as an investment, that will be made back in time, or each month by regular recurring affiliate commissions.

When I first earnt an affiliate commission, which was from the build a niche software, I was extremely happy and cast the doubt out of my mind as to whether I was wasting my time doing all of this affiliate marketing business, this in fact spurred me on to try and earn more commissions, whilst at the start I had joined every affiliate program that there ever seemed to be, which slowed me down in my affiliate journey, but this is normal, it is only when you realize that to shelve most of the other stuff that hasn't worked yet and save it for another day and concentrate on the few earnings you made on a couple of affiliate products and services.

Affiliate marketing is a simple concept to understand, but does take some required effort.

Earning Online:Affiliate Marketing The Right Way

Affiliate Marketing online is one of the internets powerful earning methods, to think about earning online is easy, but to actually do that takes a little time and effort and to figure out how to market a relevant product online takes a little know how, but with the right attitude you can build an affiliate business were you don't hold any actual products, you just promote and build your affiliate campaign from the ground up through an approved affiliate scheme.

How to market your chosen affiliate program

Is it a quality product?

You need to see if the product is a good one to promote and one that is worth your time to promote, you can usually find out what the product is about on the sales page and the layout of the pitch page you can often tell if it's professionally done or not with a good header graphic and good sales copy.

The copy really reflects the value of the product or service relating all the benefits in an informed way, so the customer knows what they are going to buy, a good graphic of the product is a good indicator of whether the website owner is serious about the validity of the product and the professional nature of their own online business.

Also if you can when a new affiliate product comes up and it fits your websites content quite nicely, then it's best to jump on promoting straight away and beginning your affiliate promotion of this as soon as possible, because after awhile there will be too many affiliates promoting the same product, the affiliate campaign becomes saturated for this product and makes it harder for the newer affiliate to earn anything from this affiliate program.

Super affiliates usually take over some affiliate programs and dominate them so no one else gets a look in, which is great for the super affiliate but not fair for the new affiliates, but this is often the case with affiliate programs, they just end up being traffic generators and nothing much else after many members promote it.

One tip I can suggest is to sign up for as many affiliate networks as possible, as at these places you will find lots of promotions to earn from and there are new ones being added all the time.

Currently there are a good handful of affiliate networks to choose your affiliate products from:

Commission Junction



Trade Doubler

Affiliate Window


And it's the above ones you can use to drive your affiliate business forward.

One that's rising through the ranks as a good affiliate network is The Pepper Jam Network A good network for affiliates always has a good tracking system for your affiliate campaigns, sid and tid are the main tracking id's for adding a custom tracking word or phrase to track the origin of a sale or lead.

What comes next after finding a good affiliate to promote?

Well a plan of promotion is always a good idea, researching a list of all the free link directories, free forums and free to join social networks and start your link building strategy, don't forget the best out of the lot, article directories, this is were you submit your best articles with a link back to your website and potentially other bloggers and webmasters will link to your article and reprint it on their web platform.

Many webmaster affiliates have that many choices to promote their content and recommendations and then they find that they are found in all sorts of different places on the web with the right search engine optimization, all though no one appreciates spam, it is more generally considered to find an interested party or group that can be targeted for that particular affiliate product.

Some of the top affiliate programs are credit card affiliates and webhosting affiliates, so try and go for the high earning affiliates if possible.

Update: Affiliate Bot is my top earning affiliate network now and I thought I'd add that to this post, as usual there is tracking and stats for every promotion you join as an affiliate, so you can best determine your results and make decisions based on these deciding factors.
