Most people are really fascinated by the idea of ​​making money from the internet. There are many ways how to launch a web venture. For someone who is new, it is recommended for you to follow the Affiliate Marketing business strategy. What is online affiliate marketing? It is an arrangement between a merchant and its web partners. The merchant will create the product and you are given the rights to sell it on the internet.

There are many benefits in the affiliate business approach. By using this system, you are free from having the hassle of creating your own product. All you have to do is focus on the most important aspect of an internet business which is "traffic generation".

The key to making money from the internet is visitors' traffic. Everything is a numbers game. If you can drive a large number of potential buyers to you sales page, you will have a higher chance to make a sale and earn your commission.

Many internet newbies failed because they are unable to drive sufficient traffic. Visitors' traffic generation is more of an art than a science. Most internet marketers will use the Pay Per Click (PPC) online advertising approach for their marketing campaign. For a beginner, this strategy is not recommended because it is costly and complicated. As an alternative, you can use Written Marketing or Article Marketing.

Article marketing will take a long time to generate results but it is free to use. All you have to do is write articles related to the product you are selling and submit them to online article directories. Most directories are considered authority sites and their web pages will be listed higher in the Search Engine Result Page (SERP). When a person reads your article and like what you have written, he will click on the URL in the Resource Box and land directly on your sales page.
