If you type in a search term on Google or any other search engine for that matter, a great deal of the websites that are shown in the results are affiliate websites. What are affiliate websites? They are basically a landing page put together by a person who is an affiliate marketer. They could be promoting just one product or promoting several different types of a specific product, otherwise known as a “niche”.
Affiliate websites are the page in between a person conducting a search on a specific term in a search engine and the product page where they can make a purchase. This landing page will contain information as well as links that ensure that an affiliate gets paid their commission.
What is commission? It is the end goal and dream of every affiliate marketer and if you learn affiliate marketing, you will know this is an attainable goal for you too. If you want to get rich overnight, then this is definitely not the correct line of work for you. You will need to put in a lot of hard work, probably create many affiliate websites, write "download now!" in thousands of articles, do tons of backlinking, and get the word out. It has been my own personal experience that the work I do now comes back to me over and over again.
This is called passive income since I no longer have to work for the money I receive from these sites!
In other words, I write articles, and build many affiliate websites, but I don’t get paid for a few months. Then, once my websites have gained some age and some traffic the money starts to flow. That’s the great thing about internet marketing. it’s VERY front end heavy!
But once the work is done, you’ll be reaping the benefits for years to come.
This is one of the quirks of affiliate marketing. There are no guarantees, and sometimes what you think is a great avenue to go down is not.
BUT . . . 9 times out of 10 these websites DO make money, and the more I build, the more money I make. Simple as that!
Building a page or website does not require any special skills, and if you simply cannot do this, you can outsource the work and have someone else do it for you. Not a big deal. The main thing is to stop thinking about success and making it happen for yourself.
