Ever wondered what could be the easiest way to earn money without putting too much effort and risk? Well, there could be many ways of which Affiliate Marketing is one of them. Many people mistake Affiliate Marketing as something which is very tedious and less rewarding. This has been proven time and again to be just a myth. In reality, it is a very easy job and equally rewarding as well. Many people have given up their daily jobs and taken up Affiliate Marketing as their full time career, because of the perks it provides. Think about you sitting in the leisure of your home in your favorite pajamas and without the worry of getting to the office on time.

Before you decide to start off with Affiliate Marketing, you need to know at least a little about it to one day master it. First of all, Affiliate Marketing is where you promote someone else products and in return get rewarded in the form of money or gifts. This can be done in many ways. Few of the most common ways are Conduit method, where the affiliate actually leverages the efforts of the clients they promote. Then there is the Cost per Click, but recently this is not very widely used because of the click fraud issues. We also have the Multi-tier system where the main affiliate has a couple of other affiliates under him/her and they in turn have few other people under them. So the hierarchy decides the commission from the profit.

For a beginner, the safest bet is the Conduit method, because of three main reasons. You don’t need a huge capital investment. Secondly, the Conduit method doesn’t require a lot of time from your otherwise busy schedule. And lastly, you can see favorable results in a much shorter time than any of the other methods. All you have to do write something about the product and place it such a place like your website where other people will see it and also perform the necessary action like buying the product or registering in the clients website etc. You will be paid once the requirements are met.

But this is not it. Just because you have decided to make money by Affiliate Marketing, doesn’t mean it will all happen right away. There are some things that you need to have even before thinking about Affiliate Marketing. Firstly you need to have a website, which has a good amount of traffic, i.e. many people should visit your site. The next big thing is to find products to promote, because without products, there is no marketing.

The main reason why most people feel making money online or earning a livelihood by online marketing is all a joke is because people initially start with all interest, but they expect results very soon which is most of the time does not happen and they give up immediately. Online marketing techniques like Affiliate Marketing will work, but the person needs to have patience and has to make some wise decisions while choosing the products to promote.
