Affiliate marketing is now a fully developed industry with millions of dollars being paid to affiliates each month. For those not completely sure how it works, an affiliate is simply a person who signs up to promote a product or service for someone else. You are paid a percentage of the sale, sometimes as much as 75 percent. You will be given a unique hyperlink to place on your sales page that lets the publisher know where the visitor came from. Once you’re signed up as an affiliate, you need a website (nothing more than a single page sales letter) and manner to drive traffic (article marketing is an effective, free way to do this). For your Web real estate, there are several companies that provide free space and hosting for your purposes.
