    How it works

    Starting up an affiliate business is very easy:
  • Build a site.(Read our SEO section!).
  • Sign up with a few profitable affiliate programs that are related to your interest/site.
  • Link to the programs from your site using your personal tracking links.
  • Generate traffic to your site.
  • Make your visitors want to buy the products from your programs.

That's it. If you can do this, your visitors will click on the links and purchase products from the affiliate programs - and the commission goes right into your affiliate account.

How can you make money with Affiliates?

    3 ways to earn money through affiliate marketing:
  • Pay Per Click(PPC) - Every time a user leaves your website by "clicking" on the link leading to the merchant's web site, you get credited a certain amount for each "click". This amount ranges based on the "keyword" in the ad link. The highest paying clicks recorded is around $63 per click.
  • Pay Per Sale - Every time you make a sale from your website on behalf of an affiliate, you get a commission. Easy and simple. Each affiliate program pays a different commission and you'll have to check their payout programs.
  • Pay Per Lead - No selling involved here. You want to try and get your website visitors to fill out a survey, give their email, or get some other type of information. Every time you generate a "lead" for an affiliate, you get paid. If the lead generates a sale, some programs will then pay you a commission also for the sale.
