Affiliate Marketing Questions

What is affiliate marketing?
Affiliate marketing basically means that you promote products and services from advertisers and make money in the form of a commission payment that you receive when a sale or transaction is completed by the visitor that you have sent to the merchant's site.

How much can I earn with affiliate marketing?
This all depends on the amount of work that you want to put in and what your goals are. Many affiliates don't make much money at all in the beginning until they learn to maximize their marketing efforts through efficiency and trial and error. Experienced affiliate marketers often are able to quit their regular job and make enough to be self employed. So called 'super affiliates' often make thousands of dollars a day. As you can see there is a lot of money to be made in affiliate marketing. You have to signup for the programs in our directory before you can start earning though.

What is the best way to get started in affiliate marketing?
The best way to get started is to choose a subject that you have a great interest in and have some knowledge already. So for example, if you know alot about custom trucks, and have experience with them, you could build an informational Web site around custom trucks, and then add some links for affiliate programs that deal with custom trucks, or truck parts. There are many different ways to monetize a Web site and affiliate programs are by far the easiest and most lucrative way to make money on the Web.

All other affiliate programs may be listed in the directory for a flat fee. All listings are permanent and never expire.

I don't see a category listed that fits my program, can I still submit?
Contact us and tell us why we should add another category to the directory and we will consider it if it adds value and there is enough interest to warrant a new category.
