Before You Go All In: Advantages And Disadvantages Of Affiliate Programs

Affiliate programs have some awesome advantages, and if you implement them correctly, you can make incredible money with affiliate programs.
           
Mostly, the website you are promoting does all the leg work for you. They will handle all the customer support, payment processing, product delivery, and refunds. All that you have to do is direct people to their website, by providing a link to them on yours. Once a customer clicks your link, AND makes a purchase, you get a certain percentage of that sale. That's it. You just wait for your money to come in. And if you are wanting to make money online, using affiliate programs is just one of the many ways that you can do just that.
           
You don't have to develop or carry the product. You don't really even have to know that much about the product, because the customer will be going to another website where all the pertinent information is already given.
           
 Any good affiliate program will provide all of the materials you need to promote them. Usually this includes emails, banners, text links, and free ebooks that you can use on your website. The super good programs will even offer you training, to learn the techniques for promoting their website.
           
When you join an affiliate program, you just worry about getting traffic to your site, and then getting them to click on your affiliates' links. Hopefully, a sale will be generated, and you will be making money.
           
 The down-side of promoting affiliate programs, is that you are competing with other people to get sales. Also, some affiliate sites may not be honest, and may not pay you, keeping the money that you have generated for them. The best way to protect yourself would be to go online, and see if you can find any complaints about the affiliate program.

Getting Paid By the Casinos to Play

Here are some simple steps on how to get the freebies casinos offer their players.

The forward approach will work well in this situation. This is where you call the casinos and ask them what they will offer you to come to their casino to do some gambling. In most cases the casinos may offer you some free meals and maybe even a show. If you call and tell them you are bringing a group of people to their casinos they may even go as far as to give you a suite for yourself and give a break on the other rooms for your trip.

A variation of the forward approach is to call a casino and get them to give you a comp then call all the other casinos and see if they will match or beat the other casinos offer. If you can convince them you are worth them bringing you to their casino they may just try to outbid the previous casino, and if they really want you they may pick you up from your home or the airport depending on where you live in a limo and convince them you are a high roller in the casinos a…
