The Easiest Way to Start an Online Business

If you’ve caught the Internet entrepreneur bug, you probably can’t wait to get started making money with your own website. Of course, you’re going to need a few things first – namely, products and effective sales copy to sell them.

But while you’re working on your products and sales copy, there is a way to start bringing money in the door almost immediately. I’m talking about becoming an affiliate marketer.

As an affiliate marketer, you make a commission by selling other people’s products via your website. And they make it easy for you by providing both the products and proven marketing copy (such as banner ads and sales letters).

Your affiliate business can be up and running in a flash – and it requires very little in the way of start-up costs. All you really need to pay for at the beginning is your website domain and a website hosting service.

While working as an affiliate, you’ll hone marketing skills that you can use to make your “real” Internet business even better… if you decide to go ahead and launch it. Like many affiliates, you might make so much selling other people’s products that you never get around to creating and selling your own.

[Ed. Note: Affiliate marketing does have its own particular techniques – methods that can result in 7-figure or higher paydays. And there’s no better way to learn them than in person, from Early to Rise’s affiliate program manager, George Dahir, and Web marketing manager, Edwin Huertas. You can join George and Edwin this July in Denver for ETR’s Super Affiliate Summit. Find out more here.
