Promoting affiliate programs is one of the easiest ways to get
into business online. No need to worry about products to create,
package and price. No need to worry about building a complete
website either. Just send people to the seller.
Can’t get much easier than that! In fact, check out a couple
quick and easy resources and strategies that can help with your
Splash Page / Ezine / Ads
No, you don’t need a website, but how about a page to capture
names and email addresses for your own use, before you send
visitors off to the seller? This way you can get a chance to
build a relationship with your prospects and buyers for repeat
attempts at that first close and on to additional or repeat
sales in the future, and referrals.
Make the best of your opportunities by either seeking
professional web page building help or doing it yourself. Head
to Elance.com to post your project and hire help, for example.
Or grab a library book or surf the Internet for help creating
your own HTML page, or see about using software like Microsoft
Frontpage or an online company like GoDaddy.com to build.
When people subscribe to your splash page above, start sending
them a weekly newsletter or ezine. Include content about what
you are trying to sell, a feature or review article, for
instance, on the product. And insert your affiliate link to the
product you’re promoting with a digital photo or other graphic
or banner, if possible, in full color.
Mix in some other advertising throughout your ezine promotions
for extra return on investment (ROI) of your invested interest,
time, energy and marketing. Popular strategies include using
programs like Google Adsense and Clickbank products.

Articles / Audio / Video /
Write and submit articles about your affiliate products to
online article directories and offline media (magazines,
newspapers, newsletters, TV, radio). And include a link to your
splash page in your byline or article, if possible. Then spice
up your articles, splash page and ezine with multimedia, adding
links to your audio / video content.
