Making Money Online Sipping Beer by the Pool

by Pool Builders on 08-09-2009 in Articles

The summer barbecue season had started and as I grabbed an cold beer from the ice bin I asked my new neighbor Bill, "and what do you do for a living"? I thought he must have been a lawyer or banker considering the size of the house he had just built with the beautiful swimming pool. "Oh, I'm an internet marketer" came the reply.

Like many people I'd heard that you could make money selling things on the internet but I had never met someone who actually did it and from what I could see, he did it well. I wanted to know more.

I quizzed him a little more that night and also arranged to meet during the week to talk about this affiliate marketing business. I must admit that a lot of it went over my head at first but I was hooked and knew that with a little work I too could understand and do this business.

Affiliate marketing is a huge multi billion dollar business that is active 24 hours a day thanks to the internet. By advertising products and services on behalf of companies all over the world, you can receive a commission on any sales you make.

The great thing about affiliate marketing is that you don't have to spend money setting up your business since there are many free methods of advertising the products you are trying to promote. Of course, one you start to make a profit, there are extra methods, like using Google AdWords, that can greatly increase you profits but to start, free is good.

Provided you have a computer and access to the internet you can begin yourself to earn that extra cash you need. It does take some work but then, working for yourself is always a lot more enjoyable than working for some ungrateful boss.

As I sat at Bill's swimming pool sipping my beer he showed me one of his online accounts. This was proof for my own eyes that internet marketing works. A little over a year later we have a friendly rivalry on which of us makes the best sales for the week. The looser buys the beers!
