Affiliate marketing is probably the easiest way to make money online. The main advantage of affiliate marketing is that you don’t have to create a product to sell. You simply create a website that sells somebody else’s product or service, drive traffic to it, and make money from the sales.
One of the first online affiliate marketing programs was Amazon’s, launched in 1996. It wasn’t the first one to be set up, but it was the first one that was huge and popular. Amazon basically wrote the book on how affiliate marketing is done and they continue to innovate.
