Reports show that on the internet over 8 millions people make either part time or full time incomes from using online sources. These methods vary dramatically from online businesses selling physical products, affiliate marketing (where you get paid a commission on sales, from visitors you send to the merchants website) and various other online money making opportunities. The internet has opened the door for just about everybody that can get online to take advantage of these opportunities.

Affiliate programs are one of the easiest ways to gain an online income. Plus it is really simple to set up for anyone as long as you are shown.
How it works
Well, the merchant of a product, whether it be a physical or digital product has an affiliate program for people like you and me to promote their products. The merchant offers the affiliate a generous commission for sales made from sending visitors (traffic) to their site. That is the simplest and most cost effective way to make money online, as it often only costs a minimal free or is even FREE to do (with a little time).
There are several ways to do send the traffic to the merchants site. The 2 main ways to do this are PPC and SEO.

Well PPC or Pay-Per-Click is paid advertising on the search engines. This works by simple paying for an advertisement promoting the merchants product. This advert can often be in the form of your own website which then review the product in question or you can simple send the traffic directly to the merchants site.

Search Engine Optimization or SEO for short is a way sending the traffic to the merchants site by various means. Most of these means are often free, but can be very time consuming. Some are more productive than others but there are various online tools out there to save time and make the whole process easier.
Basically, if a link on an affiliate site brings the merchant site sales traffic the merchant site pays the affiliate site their commission. Recruiting affiliates is an excellent way to sell products online which is well worth the sales commission that is paid. After all, the affiliate is doing the leg work in promoting the merchants site, so they should be rewarded with a generous percentage of the sales.Hundreds of thousands of people are implementing these online methods. Many fail because the effort and time that they are putting into this through half explained instruction simple do not bring them a profit.
While many promote the ease of these online business - they fail to mention the effort and time it takes to make a website successful. It's an easy business because you can set it up and it works 24 hours a day and you can basically set it up and forget it. But the reality is, that while it maybe easy - the success of your website cost a lot of effort and time. If your not familiar with SEO, PCP, social sites - your websites probably are not generating any real traffic.
