Registering for affiliate programs and doing nothing else will hardly make money for you. You need to sensitize potential target audience about the existence of such product by advertising your affiliate links. You can do it through pay per click advertising. You can also market your presence through writing articles with your links included. There are other methods of online awareness but they are beyond the scope of this work. I started marketing my affiliate links through setting up blogs at blogger.com and wordpress.com. I still have the first blog I set up on blogger.com which is still doing well.
I populated the blogs with free articles from free articles directories and also decorated the blogs with banners provided by the affiliate programs I registered with. Breaking through was hard but I did it and made sales commissions. I also went ahead to use free websites which I still have.
I have since graduated to making more internet riches through residual income. I have also employed my own paid websites and also pay per click adverts to enable me expand my financial horizon. I am making more profit now and you can too. Take action and stop procrastinating and you will soon make your own money online and make yourself richer.
