Affiliate Marketing For Beginners

Affiliate Marketing has been offering prominent home business opportunities for many all over the world,with the advent of broadband internet services and increasing popularity among the merchants to promote their products.So making money from affiliate programs is one of the fast evolving ways to make money online.This source of income only needs a website on which links can be placed of businesses that offer an affiliate program.Under an affiliate marketing program, an internet merchant pays you(affiliate) to send people to their site.This is done through the links or banner ads that direct traffic to other website owners.

The affiliates then place these ads on their own website and they are compensated by the online business for sales that are generated through their link.The links that are supplied to the affiliate are tagged in a unique way so that it is easy to determine which visitors the affiliate sent to the website.Some online businesses compensate their affiliates with a percentage of sales that result from the affiliate directing new visitors to the website.Other online businesses compensate their affiliates just for generating traffic to their website and still others use a combination of traffic generation and sales to compensate their affiliates.Many businesses allow you to apply online for their affiliate programs without charging any regsitration fees for the same.

On the other side,affiliate marketing is also benefecial for merchants as it limits thier promotional expenses.In most of the cases,the merchants do not incur any expense on the promotional activites of their products,unless and until a genuine buyer is sent to thier website from an affiliate's website.So this happens to be a win win situation for both - merchant and the affiliate!
