One way of earning a passive income online is to have a good affiliate marketing strategy. As a website owner you will earn a reward from a business for each customer or visitor you obtain as a result of the affiliation. You can write a review of a book or film and then display a link where the visitor to your website can go and purchase the book, MP4 file, or DVD after reading your article.
There are many popular affiliate marketing programs that you can join. You can also search for relevant products to your website on any number of affiliate directories. It is easy to open an account, and all you need to do is insert the relevant piece of code. A banner or text link will appear that the customer clicks on to purchase the product. Embedded in the code are your account details so that that the seller knows how to pay you whatever the commission rate is for that product.
By creating a niche site, you can advertise a wide range of different products. Drive enough traffic to your site and this can be quite lucrative. If you have a specific hobby or interest, you can create a niche site based on that topic. For example: Travel, Health and Beauty, and Dating are all popular topics.
To drive traffic to your website, you can write or purchase articles and promote them on social networking sites like Twitter, Facebook, and numerous others. Set up separate social networking accounts based specifically around the type of product you are promoting. You can have affiliate sites based on travel, cooking, pets, etc., and run a different Twitter feed for each topic. A quick way to get followers on your sites is to search for people with that interest and follow them.
Post something at least once a day and Twitter will start recommending people for you to follow. It will also start recommending your feed to other people. Even with an effective affiliate marketing strategy, you won't make a million overnight. There will be a lot of work keeping content up to date. Promoting your websites takes time. Allocate your time by spending more time promoting quality content, rather than loading the internet with poor quality content just to maximize your advertising potential. A very good use of your time will be spent becoming well known in two, at most three, different areas than spreading yourself too thin.
