There are so many opportunities on how to make money online. You can start your own business, sell products on Ebay or other auction sites, offer a service to other businesses online, team up with an existing company like Mary Kay and so many more. Sure, there are millions of scams out there, but when you know how to spot them, they are no match for your dooming delete button.

So, with so many ways to make money online, how do you choose? Well, if you are looking for an easy opportunity to make a healthy income, affiliate marketing is the best choice for you.

What is Affiliate Marketing?

Affiliate marketing is when you promote and sell another businesses' products or services and you get a commission of those sales. You just find an affiliate program that you find easy to work with and promote those products or services.

How Can You Promote Affiliate Products and Services?

There are so many ways to market online. I'll outline a few of them for you here:

1. Newsletter - This is the best way to get started. With a newsletter you can keep in contact with people that sign up for your newsletter that are already interested in your products and anything related to your products. You will need to have helpful, informative and entertaining articles for your newsletter. And don't forget to plug your affiliate products in the newsletter. Sell those products as if they are your own! The more opt-in subscribers you have for your newsletter, the more money you are apt to make.

2. Website - Without a web presence online, what are you doing? You must have an easy to read website that ranks high in search engines. Have keyword articles (add more and more on a constant basis) on your website. Write articles rich in keywords and submit them to free web content sites. This will help get more targeted visitors to your site.

3. Advertising - Advertise with other websites that are related to yours. Don't forget about advertising in related newsletters with thousands and thousands of opt-in subscribers. That will definitely help you get the word out.

4. Go Google - Get Google Adsense on your website pages and make some money from them, too. It's easy to sign up and easy to install on your web pages.

5. Business Cards - Get some business cards. It's not the best promotional method, but it works when you are talking to others about what you're up to.

Additional Tips:

Pick a line of products that you know you can be passionate about. If you aren't sure about the product (or worse, hate them), your customers will see right through you. That means many lost sales. Let the confidence of your affiliate products shine through in every word you type to your potential customers. This will come easy with a product line that you love. Sampling the products ahead of time will also help. You can tell your customers all about the great experiences you have had with them!
