This blog is meant to help you determine which work at home job or program is for you. I am not making any determinations on whether or not a particular program is a scam. I am simply giving you the information to make that call for yourself.

Affiliate advertising in the traditional sense

In the past I have covered a lot about the data entry "programs" that are really another form of affiliate advertising.  Today I want to talk about affiliate advertising in the traditional sense.  There is a lot of confusion about this and every day I read more and more questions from people who don't understand the difference between the two forms of affiliate advertising.
Typically, affiliate advertising means that you build a website or even a blog these days and put up advertising for different companies.  There are a number of affiliate companies that handle hundreds of different companies. 
When your website is ready you can either search out companies yourself to be an affiliate for or join one of the companies like shareasale, cj and Linkshare.  These are three of the biggest affiliate companies.  Through them you can sign up to advertise for other companies, they deal with companies that sell everything from clothing and makeup to electronics and insurance.  There are tons of possibilities.  
There are a couple of different ways I have seen people handle who they are going to advertise for.  For myself, I build a website and then choose which companies will compliment the subject my website is about.  Others though take a different approach, they look at the companies that are available, what they are paying per sale and then build a website around those products.   This is a very profitable way to do it. 
Once you have everything in place you need to start promoting your website.  There are actually a lot of steps to take, you will need to get it listed in directories and search engines, talk about it everywhere and get traffic. 
That's pretty much all there is to it.  It sounds fairly simple and easy and it is but it also takes a lot of work and time but the rewards are worth it!
