How to Use Press Releases for Affiliate Marketing
There are several different ways to make money online. But the most popular form of money-making for the online entrepreneur is through affiliate marketing. Have you ever asked yourself this question? "How can I get tons of traffic to my affiliate web site without spending a fortune on advertising?" One sure fire method that you will never hear of is submitting a press release. I am surprised that this method of marketing is not the most used method in existence. Not only is it SO easy to write a press release, but it's FREE! Sure, you can submit your press release to paid sites and get better results, but you can also submit them to countless free sites and still get amazing results. A press release is viewed by the public as a reliable report, whereas advertising may be viewed as hype. With advertising, the public may be skeptical because sometimes the truth is stretched. But a press release holds value, truth, and of course – credibility.
A good press release will be written in the third person. Press releases have many more benefits besides just generating automatic publicity; they provide a great way to build name recognition. If people remember your name and like your first product, it's almost a guarantee that they will buy your next one. Press releases also enhance your website, if you have one and they also build rapport. Customers will not see you as an individual trying to scam them or sell them something just to make a buck. A press release quickly identifies yourself as an expert in your field and gains your customers' trust and respect. Follow these 3 Easy Steps and you'll be on your way to making loads of money with your Affiliate Marketing Products.
Step 1 Pick an affiliate product. All you need to do is sign up for an account through Clickbank or Commission Junction and choose a product of your liking to promote. Clickbank makes it very easy to track sales and get paid from them.

Step 3 Then; start submitting your press release to as many free press release submission sites as you can. Your press release will be seen by thousands of potential customers within 24 hours – sometimes even sooner.
These 3 steps are an outline for you to get tons of traffic to your affiliate web site in a short amount of time without spending a fortune on advertising. I encourage you to do what I do, but put your own spin on it, be creative, after all it is your business. You may be just like me, with a burning desire to succeed and provide for your family.
