moneystackThere are some famous Affiliate websites that pay you to promote products. These are;

– Clickbank

If you are a beginner, you have a lot to learn. There is a massive learning curve. If you are not internet savvy and technically minded then it is not recommended. You will simply get frustrated very quickly.

Here are some Pros and Cons to consider. There are advantages and disadvantages of trying to make money with Affiliate Marketing.


1. Products
The products are already created for you.

2. Promotion
Sometimes you’ll get copy, banners and even websites to aide in your promotion.

3. Easier for Newbie’s
Affiliate marketing is a great start for newbie’s – Once they learn the ‘secrets’ to getting commissions, they can expand and sell their own products.

4. Proven Product
The great advantage with selling as an affiliate is you get a ready proven product with a sales page that works (assuming you do your research properly).

5. Burdens
That relieves you of one burden: product creation and making a sales page. So it leaves you free to concentrate on the other problem: getting traffic.

6. Learn and hard work
If you are prepared to learn and work hard, it’s great.
