Can you make money as an Affiliate?

The answer is yes, but it is not as easy as you might like it to be, it certainly isn't as easy as I wanted.

The ethos seems to be that "what you put in you get out", which is not how I want it to work. I would like to put in a little and get out alot, but being realistic I can see that I am going to have to work at this. I just hope that due to my inexperience I don't end up putting alot in and getting little, if nothing at all, out.

It occurs to me that I will be competing with 1000's of other people who are probably much more capable to make money online than me. It also occurs to me that my insincerity will not be a great advantage in getting people to buy my affiliated products. I hope that it won't matter, as I see it, anyone purchasing the products or services are doing so because they want that product or service and I am just a route for them to find it. The products you choose should stand up for themselves.

Being an affiliate is a must to make money online from products and services that are not your own. The amount of income you will recieve, however, depends on you chosing wisely from a vast array of options and driving as much traffic through your affiliate link as possible.

These sites can help you with your choices:

maverick money
Profit miracle
Twitter traffic machine
Commission Ritual
Click bank code
forget learnin it
Money siphon
One week marketing

These are some of the products and services I have chosen:

xbox repair
delmonte fitness
turbulance training
panic away
flu survival book
Master cleanse

Now I just have to follow ways to drive traffic to my site, I will follow the strategies suggested by my guru site Genuine Income Streams and hope that my poor web site doesn't ruin my chances.
