    Just go register at cj.com - actually you might have to have a website or blog first before you can register as they want to see that you have an site.

    I used my blogs and Squidoo lens when I first started with them and then you can find literally thousands of items to market with them for anywhere from only 3% to as much as 75% commission.

    Like if you have a blog built on gardening, you can find all kinds of cool gardening websites to promote on your blog and make commissions with.

    What a lot of folks forget is that they need a TON of traffic before they will make commissions so the best thing is to FIRST build a blog or website and get traffic coming to it and THEN add products from cj.com

    I would recommend you learn the free methods of advertising before using google adwords.

    You will lose all of your money and make nothing back if you do not monetize the traffic near perfect.

    I've never used it but try Site Built it. They will teach you what you need to know. Lots of members on here recommend them.

    Matt is right on. Unless you have a bunch of money to play with, you are better off learning how to get traffic to your sites for free before trying to use adwords or ppc.[​IMG]

    And SBI would be a huge tool to help you with that.

    When you say a "ton" of traffic, how much traffic is that?

    If you are not keen on hard work, as you put it, chances are you will burn plenty of money. My experience is that you always need to put in time and effort, or money. Either will do the trick. Adwords is harder than it looks, frustrating and expensive until you become expert.
    While free methods of driving traffic to your CJ product seem like hard work at the time, you will be building knowledge, experience and skills - in short a sound base for your future business to stand on.
    I havent found any short cuts out there. You just need to choose your poison and become an expert through correct practice and persistence.
    It's the same way for those net-millionaires. They all started with lots of patience and hard work too.
    Good luck!

    Anything over a 500 unique hits a day is a ton to me.[​IMG]

    But once you start getting steady hits every day to a blog or website, you can expect to make money in various ways.

    You have to work to get your traffic up to several hundred hits a day or at least I have to.... and then it kinda takes off on it's own and keeps building up...

    The best advice I can give you is to learn how to advertise online. This will be your main goal.

    Let me give you another advice. If you want to make a decent income online then you will need to spend money to make money.

    CJ is basically a clearing house for merchants and advertisers of products and services.

    If you have a business with products to sell you can register it at CJ and offer a commission for others to promote the product/service for you.

    The amount of traffic you need to generate sales will depend on how targeted your visitors are. The more targeted the visitor, the higher the conversion rate will be for sales.

    Often the quality of the landing page or sales page of the company/product you are promoting will make a significant impact on the conversion rate.

    There are a lot of variables, but a general rule of thumb is the more traffic you send to a merchant, the more sales you'll make. [​IMG]

    I would definitely not start using Adwords to promote products unless you already know you are pretty skilled at it and can make a positive return on your advertising investment.

    As Viola suggested, create a niche site first and generate some traffic and then start to monetize.
