Affiliate programs are advertising programs that provide monetary compensation in exchange for qualifying traffic (web visitors) sent to the advertiser’s website. If you have a website, you can make real money by placing affiliate program banners on your website. Adding an affiliate banner to your website is simple, and in today’s post we’ll explain how you can do it yourself.
First, you need to have a website. If you don’t have one yet, we invite you to create a free web site now with WebSpawner’s easy-to-use online creation tools.
Next, you need to join one or more affiliate programs. Many affiliate programs are available online from popular sites such as eBay, Amazon.com, and Apple’s iTunes Music Store. You can find more affiliate opportunities by searching your favorite search engine for “affiliate program” or through online directories such as Affiliate Scout and Memolink. Follow the instructions on each site to complete their online forms and join the programs you select.
After joining a program, you will be able to obtain the affiliate program banner code which you will add to your website. Some programs may email the code to you; others will provide it on their websites. Select the code for the banner you wish to add by highlighting it with your mouse and then Copy it (Control-C in Windows, or Command-C on a Mac).
