i've been reading as lot about affiliate things on mylot lately,but what exactly is that and how does it work,because i don't want to start something that'a not going to be worth my while doing,lots of people on here say that they can earn a few quid/dollars a month from it,but i don't understand what it's all about

affiliate business is basically you guiding people to companies, where they would buy something, and you get a cut out of the profit as a thanks for sending us a customer from the company.

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.
