A: What technology to use to create your website and should you do it yourself?

Whether you decide to create your own website or to use the services of one of the many affiliate marketing networks, you will probably need to know how to create an e-commerce website. There are many different types of affiliate programs, but they all revolve around the same idea: you place links on your website that point to products (or services) offered by other companies. When customers click on the links you’ve created, they are taken to the company’s website. The company will then pay you a commission for referring customers to them. Some companies pay commissions only when customers buy something (this is called a revenue share scheme), while others pay even when they just download information about their product (called a lead generation scheme).

B: The commission rates will vary widely based on the type of affiliate program you choose. The easiest way to find out what kind of rates are available is to do some research on the internet. Once you’ve decided which program(s) to join, contact them directly and ask them for more information about their program. This is also an opportunity to ask about the commission structure, whether you can use banners or text links, and what type of content is allowed on your site. The webmasters at these companies will be able to answer any questions you may have. Just remember that not every affiliate program is right for every internet business.
