This simple definition of affiliate marketing is where you get paid to sell products or services for other people. Not every affiliate marketer makes money however! In this article let's talk about how you can make money with affiliate marketing if you do it right.

The first point I want to make is that every affiliate program will give you a website that is coded with your ID number. This is the website that you want your visitors to end up on and make purchases from.

A couple of key points about this website are:

1. Every affiliate marketer has the exact same website from the affiliate merchant.

2. Sending traffic directly to the website provided to you by the merchant is not necessarily the best way to make money as an affiliate marketer.

If you take a step back and logically look at this the first thing you notice is you have no control when you are using a website provided from an affiliate merchant. Another key point is that when every affiliate marketer is using the exact same website, you have no way to make yourself stand out.

One of the most important things you will learn about 'make money affiliate marketing' is the importance of pre selling and follow-up. Here is what I mean by that!

1. Pre selling is where you get a chance to warm your prospect up before sending them to your affiliate website. To do this you will need to create your own web page and talk about some of the benefits from your own personal point of view.

2. Because most visitors will not make a purchase on the first visit, it is important that you gather contact information for future follow up. This can be something as simple as getting their name and e-mail address and storing it in an autoresponder.

The best 'make money affiliate marketers' are people who pre program their autoresponder with relationship building messages. These are useful messages that help you develop a relationship with your prospect and will in turn increase your affiliate sales. To do this you cannot be selling all the time, but rather have to become known as a trusted friend.

Make money affiliate marketing is best done when you practice the above points we have listed. Your ability to sell to a prospect is more easily done when they get to know you, and when they trust the advice that you are giving them.
