I Want to Start an Online Business
How to Start a Home Business – for free
You must have a way to generate revenue. This means that you have to offer a product or service that helps people or answers a need. Many people have products that they can sell. They either make them or get them from a supplier.
I do not want to handle products so I will concentrate on another way that sells other people’s products. This is called affiliate marketing.
What is the best affiliate marketing?
One of the best ways to affiliate market is to have a website and find a niche so that you can offer informed content to a specific audience of like-minded people.
A niche is a narrow, specific topic of interest to like-minded people.
When you choose a niche that you know about and enjoy, researching and sharing information will be fun and helpful to others.
You then can apply to become an affiliate to companies that offer products for those interested in that niche. When your visitors buy a product you get a small percentage of the profit.

Affiliates for your business
Many businesses offer affiliate or partner programs. You just have to check their websites. Amazon is the most well known and offers the biggest variety of products. There are also companies such as CJ Convergent and Click Bank that handle many companies affiliate programs. I personally have about 7 affiliate agreements that include products and website services. I have found that some companies that I buy from also offer affiliate programs.
How to learn Affiliate Marketing
The best way that I know of to learn affiliate marketing is the training program that I am a part of. There are many affiliates that come here with stories of spending a lot of money and getting poor results. Their are members that have been in affiliate marketing for years that are here to help and offer their expertise. There are also members that come with very little knowledge of online marketing.

Kyle and Carson, our founders and owners have designed a learning system that encourages the sharing of ideas and the helping of others. When you are active in the community you will develop your online and marketing skills. It is also, I might add, a fun way to learn.
