Affiliate programs are also sometimes referred to as associate programs. When you enter into an affiliation you are essentially partnering with another company to allow that company (or affiliate) to advertise on your website.
Generally, you get to decide what ads you want to use and where you want them on your site. The right affiliate partnerships create a win-win situation for you and the affiliate company but using the wrong ads can hurt your website.
Here are five important things you should know about affiliate program payments:
Affiliate programs can help you earn supplemental income, and eventually may even grow into something semi-lucrative. But the days of making big bucks overnight by simply setting up an affiliate storefront are pretty much a thing of the past. In fact, most affiliate programs now forbid you from setting up storefront ads and online catalogs and have become more selective about the websites they will partner with.
If you are willing to spend the necessary time building a quality blog or website, and partner with the right companies, you will make at least some money from affiliate ads. But it is still up to you - not the affiliate to make the money. The more you are time and energy you are willing to invest in making affiliate programs work for you, the more likely you are to be successful.
