Some of the best home based business opportunities have to do with the promotion of products and services. Affiliate marketing is one of the more commonly used strategies to promote and/or sell items on the Web.

People who work at home very often earn their livelihood as affiliate marketers. And they can make vast sums of money as affiliates.
The role of an affiliate marketer is really quite simple and straight forward. A company has a new product that it wants to promote on the Internet. The company’s expertise lies in the development and manufacturing of the new product. Wanting to have a successful launch and promotion, of the new product, the company enters into an agreement with some affiliate marketers. It is agreed that
the affiliates will be paid a commission on each and every sale of the new product. This commission is payable shortly after the sale is made. As the new product requires ongoing servicing and maintenance, the company offers the appropriate contract to its new clients. This service agreement is payable monthly and it is sold by the affiliate marketers at the time of sale. The affiliates receive a monthly commission on these service contracts. This income is called residual income. It is this residual or passive income that is so very interesting to the affiliates. As each month goes by and more sales are made, the amount of residual incomes increases.
Home based business opportunities offer several interesting benefits to people who want to work at home. The time consuming traveling back and forth to the workplace is eliminated. This represents a huge savings in commuting expenses yearly. The work at home situation lends itself to a flexible work schedule.

And if both parents are working, by having one parent work at home, very often the daycare costs are reduced to very little or nothing.
