Whenever I tell newbies about affiliate marketing as a way of making money online, they tend to think I’m exaggerating about the amount of money you can potentially make.
Here’s what a report on MSNBC says:
“A staggering $2.1 billion in affiliate marketing fees were paid to blog and website owners in 2008. This finding in a recent study by Jupiter Research confirms what many savvy Internet marketers have known for a while: Affiliate marketing has become one of the top business opportunities online because the startup costs are so low and the income you generate can be mind-blowing.”
Affiliate marketing is indeed a very viable industry. You can make a lot of money, but as with anything else, you get out, what you put in.
Read the full report; it gives you a good overview of how to get started with affiliate marketing.
