Being an affiliate marketer online isn't all that difficult to do, but if you don't really have the desire or the time to build your own website or even to keep up a blog it might be a little bit tougher to be successful at, but, it is not entirely impossible to do.
The first thing you are going to want to do is to sign up for different affiliate networks. You can get online and Google the different directories that will give you lists of affiliate networks that are available for you to join. Once you have registered with the networks that interest you make sure that you get very familiar with their campaigns and the networks that they run.
For an example of an affiliate network you might join we'll use Google Adwords. After you sign up you will click on “Create a Campaign” from a drop down menu. Then you will chose “Keyword Targeted” or “Placement Targeted.” The keyword ads will be put on sites that Google feels is relevant and the placement ads are put on different sites that you want to have them placed on.
You will need to name your campaign so choose a name that is going to help your remember what the campaign is trying to promote. So if it's for an ebook you are trying to promote then it's a good idea to use the name of the book as the campaign title. You need to make sure that it's a title that means something to you and your campaign.
After all of your fields are filled out then you can scroll down and click on “Continue”. You will then be able to pick keywords. Just use one keyword or one keyword phrase per line and then go to “Continue” and click on that.
Next you need to pick a daily budget and the maximum amount of money that you are willing to spend on the advertising of the products that you are trying to sell. After you do this click on “Continue”. You can then simply check your ad and make sure it looks just like you want it to look. If you are satisfied with it then simply click on “Save campaign” and that's basically all there is to it when you don't have your own website or blog to place the ads on.
You will later be able to check your stats and compare them with the number of clicks that your ads are getting and then you will start making commission as soon as people start buying the products that you are promoting.
