Do You Know what exactly Affiliate Marketing is?

Have you been wondering what exactly affiliate marketing is? This useful report can give you an insight into everything you've ever wanted to know about making money with affiliate marketing.

Are you a webmaster who needs money to keep your website running? Or is your website the only mode for you to earn income? Whichever you are, for as long as you are a webmaster or a web publisher and you need cash, affiliate marketing may work well for you. With affiliate marketing, you may get a lot of cash pouring into your bank account easily.

Well, simply because affiliate marketing is the easiest and perhaps the best way to earn profits online, unless otherwise you are a businessman and would rather sell your own products online than advertise other businessman's products on your site. But even online retailers can benefit from affiliate marketing programs, because affiliate marketing actually works for merchants as well as it works for the affiliates.

Affiliate marketing, purely said, is a bond or agreement made between two websites, with one site being the merchant's website and the other being the affiliate's site. In the relationship, the affiliate agrees to let the merchant advertise his products on the affiliate's site. The merchant, on the other hand, would agree to pay the affiliate in whatever method they have agreed into. This would generally mean easy income for the affiliate, as he would do nothing but place the retailer's ad on his site. This would also be very beneficial for the merchant, as getting affiliates to advertise their products would be a lot more inexpensive than hiring a marketing firm to promote their products.

There are a variety of methods on how the merchant would give back the affiliate for his services, and for the webmaster, these methods simply translates to the method by which he would earn easy cash. Among the more common methods of compensation are the pay-per-click method, the pay-per-lead method, and the pay-per-sale method. The pay-per-click method is the method most preferred by affiliates, for their site's visitor would only have to visit the advertiser's site for them to gain money. The other methods, on the other hand, are better preferred by merchants, as they would only have to pay off you if your guest becomes one of their registrants or if the visitor would actually buy their products.

Getting much revenue on affiliate marketing programs, however, does not depend so much on the compensation method is it does on the traffic generated by your site. A website that can catch the attention of more visitors would generally have the better chance of profiting in affiliate marketing programs.

Then there was the Internet Stock Boom, where almost any company with a good idea for a website could get venture capital, do an Initial Public Offering of stock and become a millionaire. Such overnight success lured millions to start their own websites. That gave web real estate even more value.

Then came Amazon and their 750 million in sales every year. Jeff Bezos, the CEO swears someday that some of that will be actual profit. They may not make much profit, but they can generate more sales than anyone else. They are one of the most amazing stories in Internet history.

Ebay was the only Internet venture that made a profit from day one. The impact they have made on the web is tremendous. They created a whole new economy, not just a website and an auction.…
