How to make money with affiliate marketing is a question people ask constantly. The reality is that most of the people who ask that question do not know or have a good understanding of how to affiliate market successfully.
One of the most common ways people attempt to make money with affiliate marketing is by promoting their e-book, audio book, or program to the masses.
If you’re asking yourself these questions, you’re far from alone. Most people who try to make money with affiliate marketing end up spending an inordinate amount of time promoting an irrelevant e-book because they do not take the time to learn what I am going to explain in this article.
The following are the two basic ways to make money with affiliate marketing:
* Using the power of free traffic sources, like building blogs and filling them with quality content.
* Using the power of pay-per-click, or PPC, advertising.
The first method, using free traffic sources, is a lot easier and more fun. However, if you are starting out as an affiliate marketer, you have to understand that your success is predicated on how effectively you generate traffic. This is why it is so important to learn how to build blogs with quality content that will not go belly up within a couple of months. It will be a lot easier to generate traffic if you know where to send it.
* The second way, using pay-per-click, or PPCC, advertising, is the most lucrative method of making money with affiliate marketing. Unlike blogs, which you can leave open for months at a time, you must learn about PPC marketing quickly. Your campaign will need to kick into high gear fast. There’s money to be made, but you must learn fast.
As an entrepreneur, the first way would be the fastest way to make money. I’m a big fan of starting out this way. As you become increasingly experienced and successful at affiliate marketing, you will be ready for the pay-per-click world.
