A paid membership site for affiliate marketing is a site which offers training, resources and usually online interaction that supports your development and success as an internet marketer. Affiliate marketing can be an excellent source of home based income, however the knowledge and skills you require to succeed can sometimes be elusive. Paid membership of a specialized affiliate marketing site can provide you with everything you need to create a viable home based income in one place.

Many of them also offer mentorship and coaching programs if you require additional assistance.
As well as being the source of essential information for home based income success, paid membership in a good affiliate marketing site often comes with the opportunity to earn a passive income from referring other people to join their site. In other words, you get the opportunity to ‘earn while you learn.’ You can put into practice the strategies you learn to make money for the site and for yourself. Because paid membership is usually on a subscription basis, you can earn residual income every time your referral makes a monthly payment. This is a fantastic way to build a home based income.
The benefits of earning a residual home based income from a paid membership affiliate marketing website are obvious. Ordinarily, you have to set in place constant internet marketing strategies to generate enough targeted website traffic to your website or blog to be able to earn regular home based income from affiliate marketing. As an affiliate for a paid membership site you can earn passive income every time a monthly payment is received from a referral. This means your active efforts to market paid membership at your affiliate marketing site will result in new referrals that add to your ongoing monthly home based income. If you stopped working on it you’d still earn a passive income but why on earth would you?
There are many ways to market a paid membership site as an affiliate. One of the most popular is to join forums of internet marketers and leave comments. You cannot directly market the site but you can have a link in your signature to your own site where you can sell the idea or an affiliate link directly to the sales page of the affiliate site. Regularly reading and commenting on the blogs of other affiliate marketers can be very effective. If a blog allows comments they will also generally allow links. You can use the comment to introduce the benefits of your paid membership site. Other successful strategies include article marketing (submitting articles to directories so that webmasters and ezine publishers can publish them with your links intact in your resource section), creating your own blog and using it to market the paid membership site, offering a free ebook with the information in it and if you can afford it, pay per click advertising.

Ideally, the site will charge reasonable monthly fees for excellent benefits while at the same time paying a good affiliate commission.
If you are prepared to do your due diligence and carefully choose the best paid membership program for both your learning and earning needs, you will be well placed to earn an excellent home based income that is ongoing. Needless to say, this is an affiliate marketers dream!
