An Affiliate Marketing Conversation
About a week ago, I met a young Indian guy online named Mrigank. He's 18 and is from rural India.
He's asked me a bunch of questions since, including the dialogue below about affiliate marketing.
I've posted it here because I think it's similar to questions many new affiliates have when getting started trying to make money online.

Good job taking the first step and creating a web site! In answer to your question, Google ranks websites based on hundreds of different factors. Among these are relevancy for the search term, length of time a web site has been on the Internet, and the number of links coming into that web site.
Since your site is new, I would recommend working on the content of the site, and working on getting links to it from other sites.
You can find a list of ways to get links to your site by Googling "Ways to get free links to my web site." or by looking on YouTube for videos about how to get free web site traffic. Everyone will try to sell you their course about getting traffic through these articles, but for now, don't buy anything. Just read the articles to get an overview of how you can get traffic to your web site.
I went to GoDaddy India.I could understand that from what you told me.
1 Suppose if I make my own site www.WhateverMyDomainWouldBe.com. So
for that I will have to pay $ 10.69 (as mentioned) to GoDaddy through
That is correct.
2 Then, if I upload some free downloadable songs on this site which
if I already have on my site created from blogspot.
That is correct. You can put things on the site that people can download for free.
3 Then how will the website register make money form freely
downloadable songs? From the server?
It's up to you how the site will make money. Download and read the ThreeMoneyMethods report. It will help you learn more about how people make money online. However, you could run ads on a site where you are giving things away for free. That would be one way to make money from a "free resources" site.
Again, download the ThreeMoneyMethods report. It will give you a good start on all of this.
4.As you told that if the I charge for my downloadable songs/study
packages I can get the decided commission from website registrar.But
if the songs are free to download, can I make any money from that?
You don't make money from the registrar. The only way you would make money from the registrar would be to re-sell registration services through an affiliate link that directs people to the registrar. Here's an example of my affiliate link to GoDaddy. If you click this affiliate link and buy through GoDaddy, I make a referral commission on the amount of what you purchase.
You would make money by letting people pay you directly for the study packages you have created. You can let people pay you directly by signing up for a service like PayPal or Google Checkout and putting "pay now" buttons on your web site which let them pay you directly.
5.DO I REALLY NEED TO HAVE LICENSE FOR ALL THOSE SONGS WHICH I PUT ON
MY WEBSITES or I WILL HAVE TO TAKE PERMISSION FROM THE SITES FROM
WHERE I HAVE DOWNLOADED THE SONGS WHICH I UPLOAD ON MY WEBSITE or I
SHOULD TRY TO GET THE AFFILIATION TO THE WEBSITE ON MY WEBPAGE?
I'm not sure I understand this question. In general, my advice is... it's too easy to make money legitimately without trying to sell someone else's products or services without their permission.
If they have an affiliate program, you send traffic to their web site through your affiliate link and let people buy through them.
If they don't have an affiliate program, you may choose to send people to them without getting paid for it.
But you could also look at what they are selling and what is selling well for them, and create your own product which has similar information, but is a product that you developed or created so that you have the permission to sell it.
Hope that all makes sense!
One thing that will definitely help you is to download and read the Three Money Methods Online report.
