To be honest with you, it probably won’t make you rich. At least not right from the beginning and sure eventually it could help you to exit the rat race but you will need to learn as much as you can and actually take action on the knowledge you have gained. That is the key, taking action on what we have learnt for simply knowing won’t cut it.

I know for myself that because I learnt and now know how affiliate websites work among many other different types of websites, it certainly paved the way out of the rat race for me.

I tell the same thing to everyone who comes and ask me for help to learn more about how to invest in websites. Which is, before you do anything, the one most important thing you need to learn first is how all the different types of websites work and earn money.

There is no point in putting your money down to invest in something you have no idea how it works. That would be like buying a car that you don’t even know how to drive. Let alone put gas in, check the oil or pump up the tires.

Sure you could easily learn how to drive a car, as I have no doubt there are many people out there you know who could simple teach you. However when it comes to investing in websites, knowing how they work, earn money and what maintenance needs to be done to them to run at their current earnings. I can bet your bottom dollar you would want to know how to run your investment before you hand over your hard earned cash.

So lets get started in teaching you just how affiliate websites work.

To start off with and affiliate website is just what it’s name tells us. It is an affiliate business affiliate with another business. For example how these affiliate websites work and earn money is they are a review website or a website that promotes another businesses products. Once a customer on the web sees, reads about or likes one of the products on that affiliate websites. They will be prompted to click on the product to purchase it. From there they will be sent to the affiliated businesses website in order to purchase the product.

That link that the customer clicked on from the affiliate websites to its partnering affiliate businesses websites is track able. Meaning that every time a customer purchases something, the link they clicked on to get to the product can track where they came from, what they purchased and for how much.

This is really cool because for every referring customer that makes a purchase on the partnering/affiliated website makes a commission for that sale. Which is essentially how affiliate websites work and affiliate marketing, by earning commissions for every affiliate referred to the partnering/affiliated website.

Why is this so damn cool though?

Simply put, this means you can go out and buy these affiliate websites and start earning money. That is you buying a business that earns money online without having products, not having to deal with customer support and minimal risk as a business owner.

You too can run the business from anywhere in the world and most of the work that is needed to run an affiliate website like this is simply in just creating good content and referring the website traffic to great products.

I know it sounds too good to be true and when I first learnt how affiliate websites worked I was amazed that people were making money this way online. Fact is though it is a very easy and understandable business model, which almost anyone can run.

Being an owner of an affiliate website really does allow you to have a great lifestyle. Although like any business owner, there will be work that needs to be done to keep the business running at it’s current earnings.

It’s not like you just buy an affiliate websites sit back and watch the money roll in, which sure you could. However if you want to get the best out of your investment, building and maintaining this online business would be in your best interest.
