    Essentially you're a 100% commission paid sales person.

    Sometimes you get commissions for referring a lead, sometimes you get commission if someone buys a product and sometimes you paid a commission for an action (that might be downloading software for example).

    You have a personalised referral link for the product you are promoting and your (main) job is to get as many people to click on that link as possible. Most people get clicks on their links through websites, inside ebooks, using email lists or paid advertising.

    Of course there's a little more than just getting people to click on a link... you want to get people interested in buying that product to click on your link.

    Hence the reason that building niche sites and getting them to rank in Google is so popular (eg. build a website on how to get pregnant and provide affiliate links within the content).

    You don't need much to get started. Heck, you could get a blog, sign up for clickbank/amazon/commission junction/paydotcom/adsense... drive traffic to your niche blog, and start getting adsense clicks, affiliate clicks, and eventually sales. But you will need alot of traffic, and a strategic positioning of the products and adsense code on your blog.

    But... this is a 100% free way to make money with affiliate programs and adsense. But if you want to make your blog look more professional, you should consider purchasing a domain name, to make your blog URL take the title of your domain name.
