Online affiliate marketing can be defined simply as selling others products and services for a commission. Affiliates can earn commissions that could range from as little as 2% to as high as 100%. Your earnings depends upon the affiliate network you choose to use and the products you decide to sell.

Once you have decided on a products or service that you would like to sell then you will need to build a website or install a wordpress blog. This will be the central point where you do all your marketing to sell these products or services.

One mistake that many affiliate marketers make when building a site, they try to add 10 or 15 different affiliate programs to their websites or blogs. This is a mistake you do not want to do. You want to make sure you pick 1 or 2 products that are related and build a niche website or blog based around those products.

Building a niche specific site will give you greater pull in the search engines vs having a site plastered with a bunch of affiliate ads. On this niche specific web site you will want to make sure you add several pages of content that is related to the products you chose.

There is a great deal more to affiliate marketing and choosing the right affiliate program. This post gives you the basics of what online affiliate marketing is. An affiliate marketing forum could help answer any questions you may have on marketing, internet marketing or affiliate marketing.
