I was surprised there was no real thread on affiliate marketing here?!? Affiliate marketing in it's simplest terms is getting paid to see other peoples stuff. I've made a good deal of money off affiliate marketing and I intend to continue to make money I just setup a new amazon shop blog last night that is already showing favorable results. Have you ever sold an affiliate product or gotten paid for sales? Some of the top companies are... ebay amazon clickbank & commission junction I've also done great with niche sales like selling vbseo, vbulletin and ip.board.
