Many products and companies have affiliate programs. Even if they don’t manage their own, there’s a chance that they run one through a third-party affiliate management program like Commission Junction or LinkShare.

Most of the third-party affiliate management programs run similarly. As a blogger you use your own affiliate URL to refer traffic, and a cookie is placed on the visitor’s computer. The good thing is, that cookie might expire anywhere from 30 to 90 days from now. If the visitor makes a purchase before the cookie expires, you still receive a portion of the sale. Commission ratio can range from 5 percent to 75 percent, depending on the product.

Some of my readers quite often ask me this question : “How long does it take to see profits from an affiliate site on average?”

It is really difficult to put an average on this. But 3-6 months of hardworking may create a steady affiliate income. However i must say that the success in affiliate marketing depends on a lot of different variables.

Your long term goals, whether you’re willing to invest some money into it, the niche opportunity you discovered, etc. So many different things play a factor in affiate marketing.

If you want to start from scratch and aspire to make a profit as soon as possible, go to VodaHost to get a hosting account. You will then be able to set up a blog for you at no extra cost in WordPress. It comes  about $8 a month for hosting and WordPress is free. You are lucky that they give you one free domain with that hosting package. So you don’t need to pay for the domain name.

That’s pretty quick and easy, and then you can just start writing about the topics that interest you. Sign up with the various affiliate networks, apply to affiliate programs and you’re on your way.

You have to realize that it’s going to be sort of a slow burn unless you’re willing to pay for some advertising. Otherwise, you’ll have to rely on word of mouth.

Try going out and earning a reputation by participating and contributing in forums related to your topic, and then people can see more about your site from your profile or signature. Anyhow, without paid advertising, you should expect, at least, a couple or three months or more before you have affiliate commissions coming in.

If you’re willing to put the time and energy into it, and you’re passionate about it, then I think you’ll be in good shape and you’ll start seeing it turn around for a profit in the near future.

It’s definitely a good idea to focus on your hobbies and interests. Some people try to create sites based on whatever is popular right now. These affiliates tend to lose interest quickly.

But since you’re going to focus on your hobbies, it’s something you’ll likely stick with in the long run. I wish you Good luck.
