Is it really possible to make money overnight with affiliate marketing?

Based on my 6 years of experience online so far, I would say “No”, unless you already have a good sized list, an established website or a lot of knowledge of online marketing, you are not going to make money overnight.

You can certainly get extremely rich with affiliate marketing, but you have to be very dedicated to your business and put time and effort in before you will begin to see the results you are looking for. Do not expect to start a business today and earn money by tomorrow, or even next month.

If you are still interested in making money online, knowing it will take time and effort, then an affiliate marketing business is the best way to go. With this business you can be earning good money faster than other businesses in a faster time frame.

For those who do not know, affiliate marketing is where you promote products for other people. Everytime someone purchases a product through your affiliate link, the company will pay you a commission. You are essentially an online salesperson. For physical products the commission tends to be less than 10%, but 50% is the norm for digital products such as EBooks.

To run this type of business you need to become an affiliate for a particular company related to the niche of your choice. There are two options- either being an affiliate for an individual company or for an affiliate network. Networks are usually the best way to go because you can market thousands of products, but some individual companies are worth looking at.

Once you are an affiliate you will be given tools such as affiliate links, banners, feeds and sometimes sample ads, reviews and articles to market the products.

To be successful with affiliate marketing, you need to create a website that is on a topic you are knowledgeable about and enjoy so you will stay committed to it.

You can begin earning good money on the internet in a short period of time if you do things properly. Although most people do not make money overnight with affiliate marketing, it is a lucrative long term business to be in.

If you’d like to get started I recommend joining the Affiliate Power Group.
