Affiliate marketing as I once wrote is one great way to make money online as it has the potential to earn you the most income and you don't have to create or keep any inventory. You are simple promoting other people's products or services and when people buy it, you earn a commission. With Netfirms, your commission can be up to $60. Now that's something!

One tip I have for those who want to get involved in affiliate marketing is to establish and try to dominate their niche.

In my last post on web hosting affiliate programs you can do in Nigeria, I mentioned Netfirms as one of them and the thing with Netfirms is that they accept residents from Nigeria and would pay you in cash.

Here is what being a Netfirms affiliate involves
- Signing up first an an affiliate
- Getting your affiliate links and code
- Promoting the link(s)
- Monitoring your performance using the stats.

Signing up with Netfirms as a web host affiliate
Just go to and look for their affiliate sign up. First and formeost, before deciding to promote this merchant, you need to understand what industry it operates in and this is the web hosting industry. One great and effective way you can easily promote it is if you have a website or lots of articles relating to web hosting.
When you are ready, Just sign up with Netfirms as an affiliate and read their terms of service. Get to understand the rules and policies and know what and what not to do. They may even give you tips on how to better market their products

Getting your affiliate links
Once logged into your account, you should then aim to get your affiliate link. There is normally a link from your home account that points to stuffs like banners or link generators. Go there and choose a code that you like. I normally prefer using banners as well as text links. One tip for using text links is that you can easily embed them into your articles and they load much faster than banners. However banners hav their merits where text links don't - They tend to look more attractive unlike text links and may easily captivate more visitor interest. Once you get your codes, you should use them on your site or marketing channels.

Promoting your affiliate link(s)
There are several ways by which you can promote your affiliate link but you should read the policies and understanf which is allowed or not. One effective way as I mentioned is by making use of your blog or niche article website. You may even set up a website dedicated just to that web hosting niche. You could even choose a domain name called just to help with ranking your site on search engines. You could also make use of free blogs, websites or article directories that allow you to promote your affiliate program. The thing about using web content to promote your link is that the more articles or content that site has, the better its chances of getting more conversions or sales. Another way you can use to promote your affiliate link is by making use of internet advertising such as Google adwords, adbrite, Bidvertiser or direct advertising on websites that are more closely related to your niche. You may even make use of classified listings offline or online to promote the product and you could even hide your real affiliate link by making use of url shorteners from google or other sites.

Monitor your performance
As a netfirms affiliate, one of the things you should do after doing all you need to do with promoting your stuff is to view your stats. Perhaps, on a weekly or monthly basis, it's wise to view the amount of traffic your link is getting and see why it is so. If it gets high traffic but no conversions, perhaps it is not targeting the right or potential buyers and you may need to switch your audience. If you are getting little hits but effective sales, then it is a success. If you are not getting hits at all, then it is probably not getting noticed at all and may need more publicity.
