    Hey there, I'm new to the whole affiliate marketing and I have been doing some research but I still have a few questions if anyone doesn't mind answering.

    Can I promote products through Google adwords effectively?

    If yes to above, what affiliate programs are best for that?

    And how do the people making $100+ a week do it?

    1. Can I promote products through Google adwords effectively?
    Yes, but it's risky. Once you learn to target the right keywords and find a good converting product you can make a lot of money with adwords. It can be very easy to run up a huge bill with adwords and not really get any conversions. Starting out you're probably better off trying to use non ppc methods to start. Things like FB promotions, Youtube promotions, standard seo on a website, etc. Wait till you're better at niche research and finding good keywords to target.

    2. If yes to above, what affiliate programs are best for that?
    No one can give you a good answer for that. If anyone knows of a really good product then they'll promote it themself. If a vendor tells you his product is best, well he wants it to be... but that doesn't mean it is. Basically you just need to search the forums for info regarding keyword research and the using that info search things like the clickbank marketplace to find products you can try selling. It's just something you'll need to test yourself until you find what works best for you.

    3. And how do the people making $100+ a week do it?
    This is way to open ended of a question to answer. People make money in lots of different ways on here. Best to just look through the various forums and read what others are doing. Many will overstate their results so use some common sense. This type of question is likely to result in flames, because it's so common from newbies. The best answer you'll get is to just look through the forums. Read and learn.

    Good luck with your ventures, Wolf. :cool:
