Affiliate marketing, what does it mean to you? Is it just slapping some affiliate links on to your website and be done with it, or carefully placing and distributing promotion where it counts? How do you affiliate marketing your Internet business?

    I wonder why someone who is HEAVILY promoting an "affiliate marketing" system, who has an "affiliate marketing" related sig file, would post such "questions" in a beginners forum?

    Clearly, you are not ignorant of the answers to those question, right? So, your goal here would not be to obtain answers to those question, so what would it be then?

      "Help people to choose the best product by writing an eye catching title and great piece of content. Don't try to make people click the link forcefully. Let them understand the benefit for the product that you are promoting."

      Good point

    Affiliate marketing is the marketing method employed by an individual (or affiliate) to sell products or services of a 3rd-Party merchant or service provider. The affiliate's objective is to align the merchant with an active customer base. When a sale is finalized between the merchant and the customer, the affiliate earns a commission from the merchant for his marketing efforts. Though affiliate marketing can be performed in a multitude of ways, it is perfectly designed for internet application and delivery. Affiliate marketing has become an increasingly viable means for people to enter, and succeed in the home business arena.

      Affiliate Marketing is rather the "marketing model" used by products and services vendors to spread sales and reach markets that they would not reach otherwise. So, this is where it start, from the vendor without which there would be no "Affiliate Marketing" if it does not adopt that "marketing model".

      THEN, what you describe as the affiliate tasks is much accurate.

      Indeed, "Affiliate marketing has become an increasingly viable means for people to enter" and I'd add that it is probably the easiest and fastest way to start "a business" online without any or too much investment.

      Cheers.

          What do you mean, I mean it depends on what you are trying to do here? How are you planning to do things?

          For example, if you just want to share affiliates links to products with "friends" on your personal timeline, me I would add just a disclaimer about it, in my About me section.

          Regards,

      "Affiliate marketing has become an increasingly viable means for people to enter, and succeed in the home business arena."



      "...vendors to spread sales and reach markets that they would not reach otherwise."



      "...me I would add just a disclaimer about it, in my About me section."

      That's one good way of doing it advised by Andy

      More, and to be accurately giving you advise on this matter, perhaps a visit to the FTC website can help. Not sure if I'm allowed to place link within this post, but here it is anyway, but if it's got deleted, oh well..
