The Online Affiliates program, one of the largest affiliate systems in the world, is where most people's awareness of “affiliate marketing” begins and ends.
The difficulty for the entrepreneur using Online Affiliates is to attract enough visitors to produce significant money from this network alone.
The traffic barrier is nearly insurmountable for a newcomer.
But don't give up!
If you plan ahead, you can build a profitable affiliate marketing business.
When you advertise a publisher or company on your site, you get a share of each sale they make.
Expect to do a great deal of work in the beginning.
