- It's the easiest form of marketing for someone new (do not you hate the word newbies?)
Looking at all the different ways to promote you or a product can be quite a daunting task. Why not choose the way that is easiest to pick up?

- It has relatively low overhead
With none of the costs of product creation it is a lot easier on your budget, which is always a bonus.

With no product creation, testing or worried about distribution you will have more time to concentrate on just driving traffic. It is highly recommended to write your own copy, you do not want to use want to use what all the others do. Make your promotion stand out from the rest, it will serve you well.
- There is definitely money to be made
No need to go into a big rah rah about growing rich fast but simply put, yes there is money to be made and it can be good money too. You will benefit from what you put into it and how you deal with people. Do yourself a favor and forget about the idea that you need to trick or trap people into buying. Hopefully the product chosen is good and you believe in it. If you certainly mislead people they will remember that for a long time, just be proud of what you have to promote.
- It's an excellent way to establish an online presence
Even with no product of your own people will get to know you. Treat what you are promoting like it was your own. Try thinking about how you would want someone to represent your own product. Keep in mind that people will treat you as you treated them.
So there you have 5 good reasons to start your affiliate marketing. Go out and promote the best way you know how, wishing you lots of success with it.
