    1-You need to have a website or blog

    2-You need to be able to do a tiny bit of HTML code-this means being able to form good clickable links and knowing where to put them. most of the time you will just have to copy the links.

    3-You need to be able to drive traffic through social networking, pay per click ads on google and/or yahoo related to the site topic, or word of mouth

    4-It is great to be an affiliate if you shop, because you can get money back for the stuff you would usually shop for, and your friends can too

    5-You can sell real world products, TVS, computers, clothes that they company will fulfill through CJ.com, commission junction

    6-You can sell digital product for other people through ClickBank.com

    7-You can sell both through PayDotcom.com

    8-it helps to know your niche-dog training, electronics, whatever. There are plenty of opportunities out there, so don’t just sell everything in sight. BE a specialist. Review products. Sell the stuff you would usually use-you are an expert and that is the kind of content that separates the confused buyer from the one ready to open their wallet.

    9-For clickbank, there are actually affilliate lessons in there-you might want to set up your links and account and buy one, get your commission, and learn more about it. Ewen Chia, Mike Filsaime, and Brad Callen material is always a good bet-they know what they are talking about in terms of internet marketing.

    10-You need to be patient, you might convert one person in 6, or 100. It all depends on how much traffic you are driving.

    11-Some programs will give you cash per lead, that is, they take action by signing up for more info. You will see it in Commission junction in the payout area, sort of to the right-it will give percentages and then under it it would say LEAD: $5 of even $50 of $100.

    12-I would NOT drive people straight to the affiliates, but set up an email capture on your site offering something free in exchange for their email address, so that you can contact the people who have visited your site on a regular basis through a free newsletter on a relevant topic. Lead generation is the name of the game. You can get an email capture pretty inexpensively, which is also easy to use, at

    It will give you up to 1000 autoresponders, so you can do a lot with it.

    13-The best program for learning this is Affiliate Classroom by Anik Singal but it is not exactly cheap.

    14-Websites you can learn from about affiliates, driving traffic, basic web stuff I have been talking about above at:

    http://insidersecretscorp.com

    http://search-engineers-inc.com

    if you are not sure what I mean.

    15-Then of course there is the Amazon Associates program! They make it easy to get started, though the commission is only 4%.

    16-Don't forget to set this up as a small business to get tax benefits from it. An LLC or Corporation gets up to about 300 deductions compared to our 75 or so as ordinary people. Kepp all receipts for everything you buy, it counts as business set up expenses.

    Final word:

    It does take time to set up but the rewards can be excellent. It is all about multiple streams of income, and automated income=you can be earning even when you are on vacation or sick, if your website is set up and happily running and people are visiting and clicking.

    Best of luck with it.
