Affiliate marketing programs have become popular because of the many different ways they allow you to make money online; in many cases they allow you to make money online for free. Here are five of the most common ways you can make money as an affiliate marketer working at home on the Internet.

1. You can get paid selling advertising in a pay per click program. For example, Google Adsense offers a program where you earn money every time someone clicks on an ad that you place on your website. It is free to join and easy to run.

You simply join the Google Adsense program and place html script on your site. The script will bring up relevant advertisers according to the theme of the page. This is a very easy way to make money as an affiliate marketer. There is plenty of information available on the Internet about how to increase the amount of money you earn per click and how to increase the number of clicks your ads receive. Some people focus their entire Internet marketing strategy on these techniques.

2. Another way to make money as an affiliate marketer is to sell leads. You join a merchant affiliate program and place banners or text link ads on your site that lead to a lead capture form. Every time somebody fills out one of these you earn a commission.

3. Selling products is the most common method that affiliate marketers use to earn money. You can sell physical products or downloadable products and earn commissions on every sale. There are literally millions of affiliate merchants looking for people just like you to sell their products. You will not need to carry stock whether you sell physical goods or downloadable products. In the case of physical products, the merchant will look after the shipping and handling side.

4. Two tier affiliate marketing is where you recruit affiliates and earn money on their sales. This is a popular form of earning money for people who enjoy working with other people.

Today, social networking is extremely popular and two tier affiliate marketing ties in well with that. If you are able to teach people to duplicate what you are currently doing, you can make a lot of money as a two-tier affiliate marketer.

5. If you don't want to work for the rest of your life then joining affiliate marketing programs that offer residual income may appeal to you. With the residual income programs you get paid over and over each time you make a sale. For example niche membership sites are extremely popular right now. People join these because they want the training and access to products on monthly basis, so they can turn around and create products from them.

Residual income affiliate programs offer a great way for you to get paid over and over selling membership subscriptions. Website hosting is another example of this.

Many membership sites have great retention rates therefore they will earn you commissions on a ongoing basis. Residual income is a great way to make money as an affiliate marketer.

As I said at the beginning, these are five of the most common ways you can make money with affiliate marketing programs. I suggest that you try one type of affiliate marketing program, thoroughly master it and then add another, and then yet another to your portfolio until you are able to use all of them to maximize your earning potential with multiple streams of income.
