Affiliate marketing is one of those online business ideas that is suitable for all kinds of ventures; from part time solo workers who are looking for a second income to full time businesses with larger budgets. Our Affiliate Marketing for Beginners session will get you started and have you ready to earn commissions as quickly as possible.
Affiliate marketing is ideal for those who are looking something to do while working from home as well as for existing businesses who want to capitalise on their presence within a niche market. The principle is very simple; the aim is to persuade internet users to visit a page through a specific and unique link and if they subsequently make a purchase having clicked through that link then you earn some commission on that purchase. The price is the same to the buyer whether they buy through your link or another so there is no additional charge to the customer.
There are tens of thousands of e-commerce merchants who sell every product and service imaginable and they seek to market those products and services by enlisting affiliates who promote their offerings to a wider audience through the use of niche blogs and websites and through social media.
It’s a low risk business which is scalable and which has an unlimited earning potential. However, it can be confusing and bewildering if you’re not familiar with all the terminology and methods used to generate the traffic.

I was not very computer literate but Ben was very supportive and helped me immensely. If ever I had a query Ben would answer very quickly (even when he was on holiday!) and gave me detailed responses. ~ Erica Joyce, LoveSail.com
