These two sites alone have great information and email newsletters on how to use their offerings to sell other people’s products. With affiliate marketing, you do not have to create the product. It is already created for you.

You may also want to check out individual companies’ affiliate programs. Look for a niche that you feel comfortable to market and possibly have a passion for. Research the company and check out their affiliate program details such as commission structures and terms and conditions. If you need to contact them, feel free to do so. I did these years ago and never regretted it.
