There are certainly tons of ads you can find about starting a home business opportunity online and building a business from home online is a real option these days.
I want to talk about affiliate marketing because it truly is the very best and easiest way for anyone looking for a home business opportunity online.
Affiliate marketing has absolutely nothing to do with selling and anyone that is successful in this business will tell you the worst thing you can ever try to do is sell. This is perfect for those people that will say right away “I do not want to sell”
So, forget selling because we do not want to do that.
Let us now dissect these two words…affiliate and marketing.
Sounds really technical does it not?
What is an affiliate?
An affiliate is nothing more than someone who partners with a company that is selling products and services online. there are thousands of companies that offer “affiliate partner programs” you can join absolutely free and the merchant will pay you for sending customers there way.
Now we know that “affiliate” means a partner to a company that wants help selling more online. Notice I said the company is selling more online. Leave the selling to the company.
An affiliate really does nothing more than help people looking for things online find the companies providing what they want. Sounds simple and it really is once you know some very basic and free techniques of finding people online that want or need what your partner is selling.
Now we know about “affiliate” so let is talk about that word “marketing”
I do not really like this word in the context of what we are doing but it does represent the fact that we are helping our partner companies “market” what they are selling.
It is a word that people usually relate to having to have some sort of formal “marketing training” to be able to understand. This is true to an extent but the training is something anyone can get and apply very easy.
What we are really doing is identifying segments of people that would be interested in what our partner companies have to offer by researching online search trends and placing information in front of those folks via search engines.

This is a home business opportunity online that can be started very cheap and even without any money at all using a wealth of free tools online. Anyone can learn and apply the techniques required to make money with affiliate marketing.
It is without a doubt the fastest growing legitimate home business opportunity online today.
