  • Virtual Assistant Inc. - the think about my presentations is that I just include a framework of what I was speaking about.

    Affiliate marketing is simply commission-based sales. If you have a site about a football team, you could join an affiliate program that sells football jerseys. You would put an ad for that company on your site, and if somebody clicked through and made a purchase, you would earn commission on the sale.
