If you answered no to these questions you are correct. When you have a website you are monetizing, you must promote the proper affiliate program for the concept you build your site around. Your visitors arrive at your site generally by the search engines. They expect to find ads related to your concept.
If you use Google adsense, you are, in a way, into an affiliate program. You place the advertising code where you want the ad to appear, Google computers figure out what your page concept is and supply the appropriate ads. You get paid when someone clicks on an ad. Not when they buy something. The difference is that you may get paid a few cents to a dollar or so from adsense. That program is called pay per click. On the other hand, Sears pay a three percent commission on sales if you are an affiliate of theirs. That works out to $30.00 on a $1,000. sale.
Considering all of this, here are four good reasons for joining an affiliate program.High Income Potential. If you have a job you probably are on a fixed hourly rate or salary. You either need to work more or take a second job to bring home more money. With your website and using affiliate programs the more you work the more dollars you make. If you want more toys you simply work harder on your website. Work wherever you are. You like working from home. Wonderful. You want to spend the winter in your RV in Arizona. More wonderful. As long as you can have access to the internet the world is your office. The World is your marketplace. Once you have a reasonable daily count of visitors, those people find your site from the four corners of the earth. Think of the person with the boutique who may see 40 shoppers a day. They would probably die to have your 300 shoppers a day. Sell almost anything. Almost every item produced today is sold online. It would be easier to make a list of things that are not sold.
You really are sitting on a goldmine if you are not into affiliate internet marketing.
