Thousands of people have become affiliate marketers for the simple reason it is a great way to earn money from home. Of course the number one method of being an affiliate making money with online sales is using the Internet because of it's ease and convenience.

But, there is secret to becoming successful with online affiliate marketing and it is the one secret that can make or break an affiliate marketer. It is something that is not talked about or advertised. The secret that I am talking about to becoming an affiliate making money is list building.

The vast majority of "Super Affiliates" who are online today marketing different products all have very large list. These list can have thousands of names waiting to receive valuable information. Some of the most successful affiliate marketers have moved beyond selling some one else's product and have created their own products and promote these exclusively through their list. It has made many of them very wealthy.

Even if they no longer produced their own products and started selling other peoples products tomorrow they would still make huge incomes by simply marketing to the list they have built.

Many new affiliate marketers attempt to make a living using the free tools that most affiliate companies provide them. Most will advertise a replicated website and banner advertisements provided by the product owner with the beliefe these materials is all that is needed. Of course there is an occasional sale made or a new affiliate sign up but that becomes the end of marketing to those people.
