On to job of promoting your new affiliate business.
There are of course many ways to promote any new business. There are way to many to list in this short article. Lucky for you there are many excellent books on subject. Two really good ones are The Associate Program Marketing Handbook, by Marlon Sanders and Super Affiliate Strategies, by Jimmy D. Brown.
Just to give you an idea of where you can start I'll list some of best ways that I know of to promote any business online.
First Create a free newsletter. Provide interesting content,useful information and mix in a plug or two for affiliate programs you are promoting. You can submit your ezine to online ezine directories and promote it on your web site to get subscribers.
Participate in chat rooms or on discussion boards related to product you're promoting. Again provide useful information be helpful ask questions. Don't post blatant ads. That is a big NO NO on most boards unless otherwise stated. If time presents itself while you are chatting, mention product. If it doesn't then let an attention getting signature file, that you have created give them a good reason to visit your affiliate site. Remember you are gentle persuader.
You may also consider putting together a free ebook or writing short informative articles with useful information and a link to your web site then submit it to some ebook or article directories, like www.goarticles.com and www.makingprofit.com.
Another good thing you can do is write your own ad copy. Think about it this way. If all affiliates are using same ads your just another ad in crowd. But, if you write your own ads it will give you an edge over your competition.
One more thing to remember is that nothing goes as far as your own personal endorsement. Review product then in your own words explain benefits and results your customers can expect by using product. Use gentle persuave words to peek your prospects intrest and get them to click on your affiliate link that is your main objective. Let product sales letter do hard selling for you! After all you are gentle persuader.
So to answer question "Is There Really Any Way to Make Big Money With Affiliate Programs?" The answer is a resounding YES YOU CAN!
