One proven Internet advertising strategy is to join an affiliate program. Affiliate programs allow web site owners to earn extra income without the hassles of production, packaging, shipping, or customer service.
"Joining another company's affiliate program is an easy way to get started with Internet advertising," says Derek Gehl of The Internet Marketing Center, whose top affiliates earn up to $100,000 a year. "It's a 'no-risk' partnership that allows you to promote another company's products on your web site. In return, you earn a commission when a visitor to your site clicks on an affiliate banner ad or link and then makes a purchase.
"It's an excellent Internet advertising option, especially if you have a focused, high-traffic site with lots of relevant content."
The secret to making the most of Internet advertising is focus, according to Derek Gehl:
"Make sure your Internet advertising is focused and relevant to your target audience," he recommends. "If you assault your visitors with dozens of ads for different products, you risk confusing them and driving them away forever.
"You also need to test different Internet advertising techniques, including different products and different ad formats, styles, and positioning.
"Finally, you need to track the performance of your ads and monitor your conversion rates. That way, you'll discover which techniques work best. If you do all this, you can use Internet advertising to create a hugely profitable extra revenue stream."
