I'm still confused going through what I've read as I keep seeing the same keywords - products, affiliates, lists. Someone correct me if I'm wrong but the key thing is to have a product first off right? You can't just jump in taking someone elses product?

There are a ton of ways to make money online. Some ways I wouldn't touch because they don't fit my personality or of no interest to me.

Others fit me nicely. I guess I am more of an entrepreneurial than a business man. I love creating cool stuff. I always have, so creating my own products is a great fit.

Others may not want to create their own products but rather send leads to people that have products for a percentage of a sale. Those are affiliates. You send a lead to Amazon and that lead purchases, you get a percentage.

Lists are simply email lists you build of people that you can promote offers too.

You can't take someone else product but you may be able to send leads to them as an affiliate. It isn't a bad way to start out. If you find you're making good money sending leads, there is nothing stopping you from creating a competing product and taking all of the money.

It can be overwhelming at first. I was lucky because I came into this type of stuff with a product already created and I needed to learn how to sell it. I was focused only on that and that has been pretty much my whole focus to this point.
