An Easy Way to Make Money from Home

Hi there, cheers for stopping by POKER AFFILIATES UNITED.
This is meant to be an introduction to the lucrative world of Poker Affiliating for people who are curious and want to make money for little or no outlay.
I have been doing this for a few months now and am already making $1000 at least a month. This goes up every month and is a superb second income. Soon it will be my main income.

If you don't know already a poker affiliate is someone who recruits new players for a poker room such as Party Poker or Poker Room and then receives money from the poker room. You don't even have to know anything about poker or have the remotest interest in it. If you simply have a good idea ( or use some of the ideas I have provided) to advertise a room then use it and watch the money come in.

There are two ways a poker site will pay you for sending them players.
These are usually in the form of a one off payment for evey player you refer ( average $75-$150) or you can receive a percentage of the profit that the poker site makes off the player. Most affiliate programs offer a choice of which way you prefer.

I prefer the second choice, the percentage, or revenue share. This way you get money from each signed up player for life. This can soon overtake the amount you get from a one off payment, or CPA share.

The poker room tracks your customers through a variety of ways, and it all depends how you promote the site.

Online Promotion is when you promote a poker room through your own website. It could either be an exisiting website, or it could be one that you set up especially to promote a poker room. Your customers are tracked through a special code imbedded in the adverts that you place around your site. All the artwork and html is provided by the site and you only have to put it somewhere in your webpage.The banners allow your customers to be affiliated to you and you will then recieve your payment.

Offline Promotion can be done with a few websites. Party and Poker Room both allow for this, as do a few others. I will write about these later. Here you pick your own special codes. For example if you were promoting at a baseball game you could ask customers to use the code 'homerun' to recieve a bonus. That word, when entered by a customer, would mean they would now be tracked to you, and you would recieve any money that they generate for you.

This is a very simple overview of poker affiliating. I will be adding more and more articles over the next few months so please keep checking back. If you sign up as a sub-affiliate with me as well using any links provided on this page I will help you personally as well, giving you advice over email and more hints and tips to get really making money out of online poker, without gambling a penny.
