So are you going to be a “super affiliate” and spend time to develop out your own website / funnel or are you going to be the “average affiliate” and rip someone else’s campaign?  It’s quicker and easier to rip and run but you’re going to have a whole other battle on your hands when it comes to keeping a steady stream of traffic flowing.  (Google/Facebook highly discourage the rip and run method).
In the 2000s, with more and more Internet users and the birth of iPhone, customers started searching products and making decisions about their needs online first, instead of consulting a salesperson, which created a new problem for the marketing department of a company. In addition, a survey in 2000 in the United Kingdom found that most retailers had not registered their own domain address.[12] These problems made marketers find the digital ways for market development.

Digital marketing became more sophisticated in the 2000s and the 2010s, when[13][14] the proliferation of devices' capable of accessing digital media led to sudden growth.[15] Statistics produced in 2012 and 2013 showed that digital marketing was still growing.[16][17] With the development of social media in the 2000s, such as LinkedIn, Facebook, YouTube and Twitter, consumers became highly dependent on digital electronics in daily lives. Therefore, they expected a seamless user experience across different channels for searching product's information. The change of customer behavior improved the diversification of marketing technology.[18]
If you are already blogging regularly about a certain subject then it would make sense to tie in your product with this topic. Affiliate marketing is not simply a case of pasting those hyperlinks from the advertiser onto your web pages in the hope that site visitors will somehow be inspired to click through and make purchases. It is all about nurturing an audience for the products by engaging with them. This is where social media becomes invaluable. If you are already in regular contact with a readership via your blogging, then this is your captive customer base.
Some of the “gotcha” job offers from the past include check-cashing schemes, mystery shopping, medical billing “jobs” that require you to purchase expensive computer software, and craft-making jobs that ask you to pony up the cash for materials before you get started. And let’s not forget about the famous envelope-stuffing scam that was nothing more than a pyramid scheme designed to siphon money from as many people as possible.

8. Most super affiliate, make the vast majority of their money from the big competitive niches, and not from the smaller, less competitive niches. Super affiliates are not afraid of competition, whereas many struggling affiliates are. Super affiliates realize that to make big money, you have to go where the big money is. I’ll clarify this by saying that small niches are good to sink your teeth into early on and to make some sales, but in the long run, to make 7 figures or more online, you need to get good at marketing in one of the major niches where billions of dollars are being spent (e.g., diet/fitness, make money online, dating/relationships niches, self-help, security software, etc.).
It may sound too simple to be true, but Helen Southgate, senior online marketing manager at BSkyB and the Internet Advertising Bureau's (IAB) affiliate marketing council chair, is keen to allay the fears of those suspicious of web-based income schemes. "Affiliate marketing is an excellent way to generate an income from online advertising, regardless of the size of your business," she says. "It has been growing in stature and is highly regarded by key advertisers from large blue chip companies to SMEs."

There are "gurus" and programs that suggest affiliate marketing is a set-it-and-forget-it system to turn the Internet into a cash machine. While affiliate marketing can be done part-time, it's not automatic. It requires research and a plan. For this home business idea to succeed, you have to know and understand your target market and continue to do things to reach them so they can click on your affiliate links.
