Make Money Online With A Website But No Product -
"Sell Via Affiliate Marketing!"

Okay, where do we start when it comes to making money online?

Well... I'm going to assume you have a website (with the advent of Google Adwords the discussion below still applies, even if you don't have a website).

So, ever heard of Amazon?

Amazon sell books, right (and CDs, DVDs, toys...)!

They were also responsible, arguably, for one of the first ever affiliate programs (associate programs) on the Net. Their associate (affiliate) program allows sites to sell Amazon books simply by providing a link to Amazon. Amazon tracks the link, and pays a commission of between 5 and 15% if the click results in a sale. (See my Amazon example links below.)

In effect, Amazon invented affiliate marketing!

And right now, affiliate marketing is very big business.

It is thought that by 2005, 25% of online sales will have originated on affiliate sites. And many online businesses now run affiliate programs. So it is possible to make a lot of money every month simply from a link to an affiliate program - no products of your own required!

It is possible, but not that simple! Let me explain:

  • Your website needs to have a decent amount of traffic;
  • you need to choose programs that have a good fit with your website;
  • you need to promote the affiliate program well (sometimes called pre-selling!);

AND you need to join a good affiliate program; one that:

  • makes the sale or lead (converts well), and
  • pays a good rate of commission.

(Ideally, you would want to make a lifetime commission on the referred customer on all future sales too!)

So Amazon definitely makes the sale (it's well-designed, has excellent customer service, and hence has very high conversion rates). But it pays a maximum of 15% commission, and you ONLY make commission on a previously-referred customer IF they click your affiliate link in the future - no lifetime commission here!

A list of rated affiliate programs exists at and a list of resources showing you how to be a super-affiliate also exist. (Do a search on Google!)

However I can recommend a good, free, learning resource to do with affiliate marketing. Called The Affiliate Masters course, it is a bit of a heavy read, and -- like all good affiliate resources ;-) -- it does promote other services and products.

But I've read Ken Evoy's Affiliate Masters course, and it is a good read. Okay? ;-)

What product/service does the Affiliate Masters course promote, then?

Funnily enough, it's a resource ideal for affiliate marketers, beginners or otherwise.
