What is Affiliate Marketing, and How to Get Started with Affiliate Programs.

The short description for an Affiliate Marketer is... the middleman. Walmart is the middleman between the manufacturer/supplier and you. Your realtor is the middleman between the buyer and seller. The Girl scout with the cookies, she's the middlegirl between the cookie supplier and you the customer. And along the way the middleman gets something... Walmart makes a profit, the Realtor earns a commission and the girlscout, well I'm sure there's a cool looking Girl scout badge in there somewhere for her.

Note: Before we get too far along we'd like to welcome Ashley Wright and Joshua Wright to Lotto Magic and our power team of marketers. You can visit them and learn more at their free Lotto Magic team site (Team Free Lotto Magic) today, yea then join them and grab YOUR free team site and free targeted visitors too!

OK, back at it...

The point I'm making is that being an Affiliate Marketer is no different, it's really about being the middleman, nothing more. Your job is to get the word out to the public about a product or service, then you earn a commission for it.

Unlike direct customer sales which are for the most part "active" selling, an Affiliate only needs to place a link or banner on his or her blog or website, then walk away. Passive selling takes place when a visitor visits the blog or site, clicks on a link or banner then makes a purchase. All this while you're cutting the grass, watching TV, or reading this post!

There's much more to being an affiliate marketer, but we sure can't cover it all here. You can read more (no registration or email address is required) about Affiliate Programs and learn step by step what you need to do in order to properly monetize your blog or web site.

Hope you don’t mind me posting but it is very relevant to your article. Anyone who wants to start in affiliate marketing on a budget should consider our £10 per year unlimited website hosting plan. Many of our customers are affiliate marketers, and the low cost allows them to start many different affiliate sites. I hope it is of interest.

Check the conversion rate of customers that turn into sales before you commit to an affiliate program. Your time will otherwise be wasted on directing customers to their site. Check their website to see if it would make you want to buy something. If not, you may want to continue to look for another program.
