The next time you receive an email from one of the top Internet Marketers, stop and pay attention to what they are selling. If you get the same offer from several of the Internet Marketers, you’ll know that it’s part of an Affiliate program.

If you’re not familiar with the big names, you can go to my Facebook page and look through my Top Friends. When they add you as a friend, you see who their friends are and all of them build a very tight knit group.

Finding Affiliates that you can point to your products is fairly easy through Facebook and most of the other Social media sites. One of the programs you might want to participate in is the Affiliate Summit in Las Vegas in January. You’d get to meet great Affiliates and create better relationships by meeting them in person.

Imagine being able to have Internet marketing guru’s with 20,000 to 1 million in their database promote your products! That’s how David Raklin from SelfGrowth.com got his start!

I promised I’d talk about how to list your products, CD’s, ebooks, DVD’s, recordings of your Teleseminars, interviews and even your book on the various Affiliate sites.

The most common site is Clickbank. They are not the easiest site to deal with and not the friendliest. I’m not in favor of Clickbank because they charge 55% of your sales price. Then you’ll need to pay the Affiliate 50%, so you can see why I don’t think it’s such a great idea to use them. You end up in the hole every time you make a sale with Clickbank believing that you’ll buy into it for the sake of increasing your database for future sales.

The second most popular is CommissionJunction they have a much more liberal attitude when it comes to the person who owns the intellectual property.

Please do your due diligence in investigating which sites you’d like to list your material on. You might want to refer to a site Here’s a list of some of the Affiliate Sites.

So, whatever you do, get started!
