Earning money from home is a choice that more and more people want to have. The challenge many people face is knowing how to start making money from home.
Affiliate marketing is a great place for complete beginners to get started. It is possible for you to learn how to earn money online with affiliate marketing.
What is affiliate marketing?
Don’t know what it is? Let me briefly explain affiliate marketing to you.
From your perspective, affiliate marketing means that you find a company and promote its products. When a sale is made you get paid! No stock to handle. No products to deliver.
However, affiliate marketing can also be from your perspective as a product creator. You might have a great product but maybe you lack the skills needed to sell the product yourself.
There is a reason why I am including product creators and that’s because affiliate marketing is a two way process.
Make money on autopilot 24/7
You can make money online on autopilot and that is why the affiliate model appeals to so many.
With affiliate marketing, you could be making money whilst lying in bed, while you are out on the beach etc.
You can earn money as an affiliate once you have identified a product and have put in place a system that allows you to promote the product.
As a vendor, if you have an army of affiliates selling your product then both you as a vendor and your affiliates are happy.
There are literally 1,000s of products you can promote.
The second challenge you face though is knowing where to find those products.
The same also applies to you if you are a product creator. How do you find affiliates to promote your product?
The answer to both questions is: finding a reputable affiliate network to partner with.
Which affiliate network should you choose?
One the affiliate networks making waves in the industry is JVZoo.
Have you ever been to market in Spain or somewhere in Africa?
A marketplace is a very interesting place. You go to a market to buy goods if you are a consumer. But you might have a physical product or a food item or clothing to sell to customers. So you have two groups of people going to a market with different goals. Why am I talking about markets here?
JVZoo is a marketplace that connects sellers to buyers. Or using the language we have used so far, if you are a product creator (seller) then you will be known as a vendor. Whereas if you are looking for a product to promote, you will be known as an affiliate. You as the affiliate are the go between the seller and the buyer.
By putting a buyer in contact with a seller, should the buyer purchase a product from the seller then you earn a commission.
How much will it cost to join JVZoo?
Whether you are joining JVZoo as a vendor or an affiliate or both there is zero cost to yourself. It is completely free to join the JVZoo network. You can check it out here

Now I am not going to tell you absolutely everything there is to know. It obviously will take a lot of time.
You can learn through trial and error or you can learn how to earn money with JVZoo from the experts themselves.
JVZoo have approved the setting up of the JVZoo Academy to help people like yourself.
You can sign up to a free training video series sent to you by email. Look out for the special gift you’ll receive.
The emails and videos you will receive are designed to help you understand the JVZoo platform and decide whether you want to promote its products or whether you want to be a vendor there.
So you can call it a free affiliate marketing training program. It really is affiliate marketing for beginners.
In my opinion this training is not suitable for the intermediate or experienced affiliate marketer. The email series did not teach me anything that I didn’t already know. But is certainly useful for a complete beginner.
