AFFILIATE MARKETing - 101
It's easy to find affiliate opportunities! The basic procedure is outlined below.
The easiest way to find an affiliate opportunity is to type: [business's name] affiliate program in a search box. If the business has an affiliate program, it will pop up pretty quickly; if it doesn't, the business probably doesn't have an affiliate program.
We'll use the ipage.com affiliate program as an example.
Another common way to find affiliate opportunities is by joining an affiliate network. The term affiliate network is actually a misnomer, because they aren't actually a network of affiliates as the name implies; rather, they are a network of businesses that offer affiliate opportunities. Virtually every affiliate program is free to join, and simply signing up doesn't obligate you to promote for a business. So don't be afraid to TAKE THE FIRST STEP--sign up!
