Affiliate Marketing for Newbies, by Rebecca Thomson

Many people are interested in ways to use the internet to make money.  Some deals sound to good to be true (and probably are), but if you are willing to put in real effort, affiliate marketing can help you make extra money online.

When I first started blogging, everyone was talking about using ads to make money.  In the years since then, monetizing your blog has become big business, usually through various types of affiliate marketing.  I never really cared all that much about using my blog to make money, but if I had, I would not have known where to start.  That is where this book steps in.

This book is a basic introduction to what affiliate marketing is, how it can be profitable, and a realistic view of the amount of work necessary to be successful at it.  Keep in mind, this is only an introduction.  It starts from having no knowledge base.  So, do not expect in depth marketing plans, or detailed blueprints for success as a marketer.  I think it would be advisable for the author to write a follow up book for people ready to take the next step.  

All in all, I think, for the price, this is a good, informative introductory booklet that compiles a lot of the basics in one place for people who are considering this type of marketing.

I received a review copy courtesy of the author in exchange for my honest review.
