Affiliate marketing can be you promoting a page that tells something about a product, it will have your affiliate number or name, so if someone buys you get a percentage of the sale. I can't really say its great because I tried doing that through a few places and I have to say after 2 years I still have not made a single penny.

It is all about selling, recruiting. You help to sell other people product or recruit people, in return you get certain percentage of the deal made. If you're a skillful seller/recruiter then yes you can earn a lot, there're people who just live on affiliate marketing but I must tell you it is not that easy to be successful.
