There Are No Costs Associated With Affiliate Programs
It should not cost you anything to join an affiliate marketing program. The only way you're ever going to make any money is if & when you make a sale. Even with two-tiered programs, you will only be paid a commission when the affiliate under you makes a sale.
There are no fees when an affiliate program is legitimate. You will often come across an offer claiming to be an affiliate program, but often they charge setup fees or they are offering to sell you a site to market the product. Walk away from these type of affiliate programs...they are no good!
Over the past 4 years, as I am sure a lot of you have experienced as well, somehow our email addresses end up in the most unlikely hands! Who knows how it happens, but it does! Once I realized what was going on, I started creating folders in my email system and keeping all the emails I received for every offer I received to 'buy something'!
By doing this, over time, I was able to build a picture of exactly who was legitimate and who was not! I was able to quickly cull the 'fly by nighters' and their ridiculous offers of becoming a gazillionaire overnight with their 'whizz bang' product. They are still out there and you have to be VERY CAREFUL!
