When I think of making money online, one of the easiest way that comes to my mind is affiliate marketing. I’m sure affiliate marketing is something you heard of before, but maybe you never gave it a shot.

Many of those who struggle to make money online fail with affiliate marketing because they make a series of so called “newbie mistakes” and stop trying. We should learn from our mistakes, agree?

You might have heard that in order to make a living off the Internet, you first have to give something away for free. When it comes to affiliate marketing, that’s completely true. Instead of starting with the wrong mindset of making millions over night, surprise your audience with quality information.

Think of a highly marketable niche before you choose certain affiliate products you want to sell. When you found your marketable niche, you’ll learn that not only is it interested in the affiliate product you promote, but that it also has the necessary money to spend on that product.

We all know that girls love dolls. Those girls are quite a large niche. But then again, this isn’t a marketable niche, because most, if not all, of those girls don’t have their own money to buy all the dolls they like.

And then you notice that the real marketable niche is in fact represented by the parents. Would you rely on a few grown-ups who collect Barbie dolls?

Don’t rush things. Take your time and think well before starting an affiliate marketing strategy. If you do everything the right way, making money online will stop being just a dream for you.

Now, let’s see where you could find affiliate products. I’ll list a few a few affiliate programs and companies. You’ll be able to earn a certain amount of money from each product you sell.

My number one choice is definitely ClickBank, the largest and most reliable market place for downloadable products. The commissions they pay are also above the competition.

Next in my line of preferences is PayDotCom. This one is actually a sort of combination between ClickBank and PayPal, because it allows it’s vendors to sell both digital and physical products.

If you’re running a major business, but still want to increase your online revenue, LinkShare and Commission Junction are the right places for you.

Last but certainly not least is Amazon. By now you should know that Amazon is more than a giant book seller, it’s actually an enormous affiliate market.

Remember, you won’t make a fortune in a snap and making money online does have a price, which is your determination and hard work.
