Do you need an affiliate network?
Well first you should better understand what an affiliate network is and how you can actually make money from joining.
-Each Affiliate Network has a number of offers. You can choose to "run" as many as you'd like at any given amount of time. Some affiliates like to use paid search to advertise their affiliate link.
-For example, you can run an ad on facebook and pay per click. If the commission on the product you're running is .00 and the pay per click of said product is .00 then your ROI is .00. However, not EVERY click is going to be a sale. So its all trial and error. You could end up losing money the first time you put up an ad.It takes time and effort to really make money in affiliate marketing.
-Choose an offer that you like and enjoy. Perhaps you really like Ipods and know everything there is to know about them. First, they are expensive so the commission is bigger than most products, however the competition is very high.
-Competition is another point I need to make. When choosing an affiliate network, their campaigns make or break affiliates. If they have offers that are very competitive in difficult niches then its hard to make money.
So these are just a few things you need to think about when joining an affiliate network. Choose one that has great offers which you like. Dont advertise something you dont enjoy advertising or know nothing about then you wont make money.
Underground Elephant has more than 20 different categories of campaigns which make up over 80 offers. With such a wide variety you can find offers you're looking for.
