    <BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR>Housewife Tomoko Kobayashi puts on her Web businesswoman's hat at 9 a.m., after all her morning chores are out of the way.

    Tomoko Kobayashi, a Kanagawa Prefecture housewife and owner of two Web sites, works as an online "affiliate" from her living room.

    She turns on her personal computer and opens the mail box. Of the dozens of e-mails she receives every morning, 10 or so are from companies on whose behalf she is contracted to sell products.

    She then logs on to one Web site after another, tallying the value of commissions she earned the previous day by promoting everything from antisnoring mouthpieces to diet supplements and roast beef gift boxes -- all via her Web site.

    Her account book shows that she earns an average of 400,000 yen every month, on sales of more than 13 million yen. <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

    Interesting article. I wonder has anybody tried these asian affiliate programs? Unless you're really close to somebody who knows the language well it might cost a few bucks to hire somebody to manage them, but maybe it's worth it?

    Any opinions?
