What does it mean to be an "Affiliate" and how can I make money using affiliate links on my Website?
When you sign up as an Affiliate, you can turn your Website into a revenue generator in just a few minutes. All you need to do is set up a free affiliate account with Commission Junction or Linkshare. You can promote name brand products and services through banner ads, text links, and product links and receive commissions. With thousands of merchants to choose from, you can easily find ads and products to fit the content of your Website.
With Commission Junction and Linkshare, you receive a monthly paycheck that consolidates all of your earnings in your own currency. Check your balance and your payment status from home or work, any time of day, through your Web-based account.
To get started, sign up to be an Affiliate with Commission Junction or Linkshare (or both) using the links below. You will need to enter the URL for Website.
Once you are signed up, select merchants or specific products you want to recommend on your Website.
