When you enter the field of affiliate marketing, you are often overwhelmed by all of the technical things that you have to learn. Buying a domain name, pointing your DNS servers and building a website seem like huge learning curves in the beginning. However, as time goes on it becomes much easier to do these simple tasks. You start to feel like you are finally making headway when you can build a site in less than an hour! Once you have your site built, you might think that's the end of the process and you can move onto something else but nothing could be further from the truth.

It doesn't help you to have a website if you don't have any traffic coming to it on a daily basis. If you do your niche research correctly, you should know about how many searches that keyword phrase gets on a monthly basis. You want to try and drive as much of this traffic to your website as humanly possible. Otherwise, everything has been for naught. If you never have any traffic coming to your website, then you won't make any sales. You will be one of the statistics of Internet marketers who had to leave the business because they weren’t making enough income. We don't want that, do we?

So how do you go about generating traffic to your website? This is the million dollar question for most Internet marketers. It seems like every single day the idea of how to get traffic to your website changes. In the end, one simple concept should always stand out in your mind. That concept is that you need to make sure that you get your affiliate link in front of as many potential buyers as possible. It really is as simple as that.

So many gurus and Internet marketing teachers want you to believe that their system is the best. They say that you can click a button and get hordes of traffic without having to do a ton of work. In reality, this is definitely not the truth. Internet marketing takes work. It's as simple as that. Don't ever believe those gurus who want you to buy their next $97 product. Guess what? They are making money -- by selling things to you!

There are many good, honest Internet marketers who teach the proper way of making money online. However, it's very easy to get caught up in believing that you can get traffic to your website by just doing a couple of simple activities and waiting for the bucks to roll in. Unfortunately, affiliate marketing is like any other business in that it does require some level of work. It's really more about being consistent that it is about working hard. If you learn how to work smart in generating traffic, you will always have a source of income from your websites.

When starting out in affiliate marketing, one of the most common ways to get traffic to your website is by writing articles. You can post these articles in a number of different places including some Web 2.0 properties such as Squidoo as well as posting them in article directories such as Ezinerticles and GoArticles. Not only will you be able to get back links to your site (which raises you up in the search engine rankings), but you will also be able to have a place for potential buyers to read information about your product or service and click through to your website.

There are many different, unique ways to generate traffic to your website. The key is being consistent in doing something to sell your product or service every single day. Remember: this is your business!

So now is the time to discover more about generating targeted tarffic using free tools and methods.
