marketing gives small and large websites an opportunity
to profit from the ever growing e-commerce world. It is
a no lose situation as it gives e-commerce sites who
offer goods and services for sale (merchants) with the
ability to receive high quality targeted traffic, and
you (affiliates) with revenue (commission) on each sale,
lead, or click through from your web-site.
Banners or text links are supplied by the merchant often
in the form of simple 'cut and paste' HTML code which
include all relevant affiliate tracking codes. (Your
URL) Its up to you to then place these links
strategically on your web-site in order to generate
revenue. This is where we will try to help you!

What if I don't have a website?
, you will need to build yourself one!, if you are in
the UK you can get free webspace from may providers,
however my favourite, is freeola
as they will host your site for free too with no
annoying banners or pop-ups. If your looking for a paid
host then try easyspace.
what is this Pay Per Lead, sale, click thing?
offer a set fee when a visitors register for their
newsletter, fills in a form, enter a competition, or
when they register their details on their site payments
can be 5p - £1 or more.
per click affiliate programs are often very popular with
webmasters. Merchants will pay for each genuine click
through from your site.
vary from 1p to 20p at present. Pay per click
schemes are often used where sites want to increase
their traffic considerably or when they wish to bring in
visitors to use their partners services to which they
are an abundance of sites offering anything from 3%-100%
commission on sales, which can be quite lucrative.
Try to concentrate on sites which complement yours well.
Concentrate on just a few good merchants and try to
build a relationship with them. Many people I know
have made a successful site by simply partnering with
one site, and concentrating on just 'Health Products'
'Books or 'Music'.
are 2 Tier Programs?
tier programs are very lucrative as they provide
commission on two or more levels, as merchants will give
you a bonus for referring other webmasters. This could
be in the way of a one off payment or by bonus
commission, i.e UK affiliates offer 5% commission on
your referred affiliates for life.
should I use Affiliate Networks?
Affiliate Network is a 'One Stop Shop' managing
affiliate programs for numerous merchants. These 3rd
party companies carry out the function of managing the
program and acting as the middle man between you 'the
affiliate' and the merchant. You sign up once with an
affiliate network and then have access to numerous
merchants through one interface. Affiliate networks have
two 'clients' affiliates and merchants.
affiliate networks you get a single interface, and
therefore all commissions are added together, thus you
will receive just one quarterly payment by cheque or
BACS - many networks have a minimum payment of just £10!
which means you don't have to accrue £50 before getting
paid on a single product.
