Lastly, it's important to remember to BE PATIENT. Your Affiliate marketing revenue if researched correctly will grow and build up overtime time. Depending on which market you have chosen such as internet marketing or computer security some of these programs offer monthly commissions for the life of the customer. If you refer a customer, it may be possible to continue making money from that one customer even if he or she never returns to your affiliate site again.
There are very few exceptions to this, affiliate programs do not permit changes to their ads, even though it is technically simple to do for many. If any un-authorized changes are made, the vendor of the affiliate program may refuse to pay you.
