You probably recognize from surfing the Internet that Affiliate Marketing programs are a popular way to make money online. Lots of people are doing it. I call this method of marketing “Affiliate Power for the home business.”

In fact, many online marketers earn significant home business income through Affiliate Marketing. Some of the most successful marketers focus on programs that produce residual income because it is a passive source of income that is typically low maintenance.

An example of a residual income program is where the customer purchases a monthly membership or a monthly subscription and as long as they maintain their membership or subscription you, as the sales affiliate, continue to receive a monthly commission. That is what I call affiliate power for the home business.

In some cases, where sales do not involve memberships or subscriptions, residual income may come from customers who return to the affiliate site via your affiliate link and make affiliate home businessadditional purchases at a later date. Also, there are some affiliate companies that track the visitors you send to their site and credit you with any sales generated for a defined period of time, say six months or 10 months or one year. This sort of arrangement will be outlined in the affiliate agreement.

Companies and other business people who make their products or services available to marketers on an affiliate basis particularly like this method of marketing because it means they do not have to pay the affiliate marketer unless or until a product or service is sold.
