The last type of making money online is through affiliate marketing, commission revenue. You can usually see the result a lot faster than the route of developing a website earning advertising revenue. Please note… faster doesn’t mean easier.

Affiliate marketing, you earn commission revenue by promoting other merchants products/services. The merchant will pay you for a commission for a sale, a lead, a subscriber or a specific action such as zip code submit. An affiliate marketer with no established site, usually setup a brand new site target specifically for the products they are going to promote.

Oh my gosh, man! You’re on F’ing role with your blog. I’ve kept tabs on it since the first I saw it, added your RSS, and now going through my Google feed reader I found it again and had to see whats up. Wow.

I’m not too amazed with new blogs these days, but if I could invest in blogs someway somehow for monetary gain, I’d put all my eggs in this basket for the next few months.

Look, I know good blog management when I see it, and I’d just like to say you’re doing a great job, if that sort of thing even matters to you.

SiteFever is one of my favorite blogs, from design, interest, and functionality, and transparency. Keep up the good work mate!

Ways of Making Money Online series is going pretty good and I’m learning a lot. Thanks for putting in all your hard work, it shows.

Up to now, I’m still confused how affiliate marketing really works. Don’t know where to start, or even I know how to start, I still don’t have an enough clue to be successful in this field.
