One of the most disappointing things about affiliate marketing is to drive tons of traffic to a product or website and see no sales. Even worst is to receive no subscribers from a FREE product that you (thought was good) are giving away. I know you would rather take control of your future and get better at promoting products as you see your earnings grow.
If you are going to make money online then most definitely you need to have what people are looking for. If you have the product or service they are looking for then you can have their money. Products are often listed in various categories by retailers for their affiliate programs.
Before you can actually promote any product, your first step is to sign up with the affiliate program through the retailer of your choice. Most of the time commitment to joining a network is easy and fast. Finding available products or service is done by doing a quick search in the network in the category of your choice.
Each network will have their own layout and category listing. What you find in one network may be found in a different area in another network. Generally you will find ‘weight loss products’ under the category of ‘Health’. On the other hand you may find ‘antique lamps’ under ‘Miscellaneous’
One of the most popular affiliate programs is Clickbank. They are known as the internet's leading retailer of digital products. There you can receive commissions of up to 75% — much higher than other affiliate networks. Digital products mean instant delivery
and faster commissions. I’m sure you don’t mind receiving checks in your mail box a little faster than those bills are coming at you.

The entire goal is to make money by selling a retailer’s product and earning a commission.
