Affiliate marketing is a very popular online business that involves a partnership between a merchant and one or more affiliates.  The affiliate will advertise or promote the merchant’s products and services free until a customer makes a purchase.

When a purchase has been made, a percentage of the profit received by the merchant from the customer will be given to the affiliate.  For this very reason, the relationship between the affiliate and the merchant is also known as revenue sharing relationship.

Affiliate marketing has also been recognized as the best way for merchants to sell more products on the internet as well as webmasters or affiliates to gain income with their own website.  This is where the affiliate can make really good money.

To grow your affiliate marketing business, you’ll need to advertise.  The most common way is banners and links, as they also help you to get paid with your merchant.  You can put them on your website, although you should place them carefully as too many on a single web page can be very annoying and very confusing to potential customers.

Another way to make your business grow is by going to chat rooms and message boards that relate to the product you are reselling.  This can be a smart way to boost your income; you’ll meet many different people.  When you first start talking, don’t try to sell first, you’ll have a better chance of becoming friends first.

  1. Hi Gaylene,

    Thank you for this insightful article. I have been actively affiliate marketing for about 6 months, and one of the balances that I’m still trying to find is that between too many adds, and not enough. Whilst I have not seen runaway success just yet, I have to remember that it has only been 6 months.

    Your site definitely looks like a valuable resource though, and I look forward to spending more time here.


    • Hi Adam,

      Yes, even I struggle with what ads and how many I should have on my site, but if we focus on what our target audience likes then that should help solve that problem. In my opinion the key is in building a list, and sharing relevant and meaningful information that serves to drive traffic to your site and improve conversion rates. Thanks for taking the time to stop by 🙂
