Like the other Mylotters said an affiliate program is a website that offers it's members a percentage of the earnings they bring to the site. There is mainly 2 types of affiliate marketing. The first type is where you as a member will promote and market the website to get referrals. In return the website will either pay you for every person that you bring in to the website or will pay you commisions of the referrals spendings or earnings. For example, I refer my friend to a website that offers 25% of referrals spendings. My friend decides to buy a membership for 10$ so I will earn 2.50$ from that transaction. Pretty simple, no? The second type of affiliate marketing that exists is where you as a member will promote a product and the program will pay you a certain percentage of the sale. For example, I am a member of a program that pays 20% of all the sales you make. One day, someone buys a book that belongs to the program I am a member of and pays 30$ for it. I as the seller will earn 20% of the value meaning 6$. It is a very easy procedure but a very hard thing to master! Hope this helped! :D

Most of us dream of being our own bosses. We would love be able to take control of our lives and careers. The attraction of answering only to you combined with setting your own working hours and committing what your choose bring loads of people into the internet marketing schemes. Affiliate marketing can be an excellent way for a highly motivated, creative person to make an excellent living. There are some wonderful programs out there just waiting to be joined. However, for every great program there is likely one that is fraudulent. Con aissts operate in many areas and unfortunate affiliate marketing is not immune.
