Online dating has grown into a multibillion dollar, worldwide industry. You can get a share of the lucrative dating market by setting up an affiliate site through one of the large dating networks. Once you create your own special Web address and website, you can drive traffic to it. Every time someone registers and pays a membership fee through your affiliate site, you earn a commission. Several dating sites offer free professional-quality site builders that host the site and build it in just a few steps using templates. You can have your own free dating site up and running and earning commissions within minutes.
