Affiliate marketing is a great way to make money online.

What is a super affiliate?
A super affiliate is an affiliate who takes affiliate marketing seriously and doesn’t simply throw up a bunch of banners or ads on their site (these don’t really work too well). A super affiliate will take the time to review a product, write a comprehensive product review, and even set up a separate domain to promote a specific product. A super affiliate also knows the importance of building their list so they can further promote products to their customer base.
How does affiliate marketing work?
Simply, you sell other people’s products on your websites and blogs. When you see a product you would like to promote, you can sign up for the affiliate program and start promoting that product on your website. As an affiliate, you will receive your own unique ID which will track any sales sent from your site to the affiliate site.
A good affiliate program will also give you information on where and how you can track your sales, where your clicks are coming from and payment information.
You can find affiliate programs through networks like Commission Junction (CJ.com) or Clickbank.com. These networks act like “middle men” and take a certain percentage of every sale sold through them. You will also be paid directly through the network rather than from the vendor.
The plus with these types of programs is that you can choose as many programs as you’d like all in one convenient place and payment is quite easy to track.
The downside is you don’t often get the same promotional tools or training that individual affiliate programs will offer you. Many individual affiliate programs (especially those related to information products) will also offer you higher commissions.
