Affiliate Marketing is one of the best methods to earn huge money online via Blogging. The best way to promote affiliate products is through Blogging platform. Three years ago when I stepped into online blogging business, I initially used google adsense and lots of PPC programs to monetize my blog but i couldn't reach my earning goal inspite of trying all my potentials.
After researching a lot and reading experiences of pro bloggers, I finally switched my monetizing method to affiliate marketing on all my Blogs and days got changed 🙂

What is Affiliate Marketing?
Affiliate Marketing is based on commission and incentives.

So it is much better way to monetize form blogs and website.
For example: if you are promoting a product on your blog and even getting as low as 5 sales in a month through your Affiliate (refrell) link you can earn a good revenue. You are getting 5 sales in a month of a product costing $129 and the affiliate network is giving 70% commission on it so you will be making $451 in a month. This is just an example promoting one product, You may promote hundreds of product and sales can go more high depending on your creativity and talent.
