Here I will explain to you a little bit about how to start eBay affiliate business. This is a low cost business. It does not require a lot of money, but it does require a lot of time if you are not willing to invest. For that matter, this business can get started for free, but of course it is better to invest a little bit into it.
So how much does it cost. Like I said, there are ways for you to make money without investing any money. There are websites such as Squidoo that will share profits with you of eBay and Amazon modules as well as their AdSense profits. So yes you can start it for free but I believe for the efforts you are going to input into this, it is better to invests a little. I will explain to you why.
To invest a little money, there is a cost of software ($97 one time fee), hosting (approx. $10/ month unlimited stores) and domain ($10-20) per each store. With this software called build a niche store, you can create unlimited eBay affiliate stores, so it is good to have hosting that is also unlimited per each domain. I host 10 all together with my sub domain for the same $10 a month fee. And I have 7 major domains, with few small sub domains.
What it requires to make your affiliate program a success is to actually find the profitable niche market, a proper research of keywords, basic SEO (Search Engine Optimization) of your website and a lot of promoting.
Before I said I believe it is better to invest into the software only because for the amount of work you are going to input into promoting your stores and you probably want to keep 100% of the profit.
