    1. Make Money On The Internet As An Affiliate

Most affiliate programs are free to join, and only require that you register with enough information so you can receive payment from seller.

Once registered, the company will immediately furnish you with all the links and banners you need to use on your website or blog.  In addition, many will provide you with email promotional content to use with your auto responders on your list.
