Welcome to my first installment of Tims Cashflow Strategy. Without further ado, lets get into the first focus point...

Creating an Affiliate Website that Sells

Many of the so-called "gurus" will simply tell you to join affiliate programs, and you will be on your way to making a bundle of money. Nothing could be further from the truth. You are faced with the question of which ones to join, or how do you promote them? How do you get the quality traffic?

I personally recommend the following:
  • ClickBank - Dedicated to digital products, eg: products that are available by download
  • Commission Junction - The top affiliate network for companies that sell physical products like computers, credit cards, clothing etc. Some of the biggest internet properties in the world have programs here
  • LinkShare - Some of the top companies on the web have their programs available here
Finding the top paying affiliate programs at ClickBank, Commission Junction etc is easy. You can check their EPC (earning per click) and join those that convert the best. ClickBank for example calls this "Gravity". Selling information on the Internet is one of the easiest ways to get rich, once you have overcome the initial hurdles.

Once you have been to the affiliate networks mentioned above and decided which products you'd like to try selling as an affiliate, it's time to create a sales letter that you will later plug into your website or blog.

Thanks for reading, hope you liked the first installment. Next post will cover Sales Letters. I will pre-warn now, I have been analyzing these so-called "gurus" for the better part of a year and I feel no compunction about telling you their dirty secrets, free of charge. I believe the hype needs to stop, and the regular guy trying to make some cash online deserves a go. See you again soon :)

    for me approriateness is the key,we are likely to earn the most revenue if the affiliate program offers products or services which are targeted to our visitors for example if our websites features our music recording,our visitors are likely to be interested in music oriented affiliate programs

    for me the key to generating revenue from affiliate promotions is getting your readers to trust you,you don't want to promote products that won't yield your readers good results or else next time they won't trust you when you say that a product is good
