Affiliate Marketing is one of the hottest ways to make money online. For a few dollars, anyone can buy a URL and start a blog or website. By placing the right links on those websites, it’s possible to make anywhere from a few dollars a month to six-figure incomes or more.

Before you start, however, it’s important to learn the basics of the business. By understanding some of the fundamentals, such as terminology and functions, you’ll have the foundation to make the decisions to build the type of affiliate marketing business that suits your interests and skills.

This program includes discussions on:

* Terminology – Learn what each term – affiliate, merchant, network, OPM, etc. – means!
* Type of Affiliate Marketing – do you want to generate CPA, CPL or CPC traffic?
* Site Requirements – what is required for a website to be approved for affiliate marketing?
* Merchants – How to find the right product sellers for your site.
* Affiliate Networks – the good, the bad and the ugly
* Affiliate Managers – one of the best friends you can ever have, if you treat the relationship properly.

IMPORTANT: This program will include an opportunity to join a several affiliate networks if you wish, so bring your laptop and your business information including the business tax ID number or your SSN.
