3. Collect a percentage of each sale of the product or service you are promoting.
If you are wondering "how do I find something to promote?" then you will be happy to

online business. Sites like ebay and amazon for example have great affiliate programs.
Plus there are also affiliate networks like ClickBank that can help you find exactly the
product that you would be most happy to promote.
To join an affiliate program is very simple. Generally you just have to fill out a
simple form online and then follow some simple instructions to acquire all the necessary
information you need. Most of the time there isn't even a fee to join.
Promotion of the product is the next step. Effective internet marketing is of course
what you need at this point. There are countless ways and techniques of internet
marketing, far too many to cover in one article, but here are a few hints and tips.
• Choose the niche or micro niche. Niches are like areas of interest to
people and micro niches are further deeper areas inside of the particular niche. For
example there is dog training as a niche. Then Bulldog training as a micro niche. Getting
this right will help you by making sure you are not trying to sell in an over-saturated market.
• Next you must choose which product or service you wish to sell in you
niche or micro niche. You can choose digital products like ebooks or downloadable audio
books. Or, you might want to choose a physical product like clothes or CD's. Generally if
you have chosen a good niche then there will be plenty of great products or services for
you to choose from.
• Next step is to do some 'keyword research' to ensure that you are using
the right keywords to promote your product or service. Keywords are the individual words
or phrases that people type into their search engine to find what they are looking for.
The best keywords for you to use are ones that are very specific to your product or
service, but also have low competition on them.
• One technique to use to promote your product or service is by writing
informative articles, using your chosen keywords. Post your articles on a blog or article.
