2. Affiliate Marketing Beginners Basics
In this lesson, we are going to go over a few simple tactics that you can use to become a successful affiliate marketer and start earning a nice income promoting other peoples products online.
Did you know that you have the potential to earn thousands of dollars each month when you apply yourself and learn the ins and outs of affiliate marketing?
It may seem like a pipe dream to you right now, but I know real live people who are doing just that and they started just like you by learning the basics and growing their business.
Now, it doesn’t happen overnight like so much of the hype you hear online. To build a profitable affiliate business you will have to invest your time, efforts and even some money depending on your promotion strategies.
You will have successes and failures along the way and they will teach you what works and what doesn’t.
The most important thing I want you to remember is not to get discouraged if you don’t start seeing profits right away. When I first started marketing affiliate products, someone told me to think of it like planting seeds in a garden.
You have to tend it consistently in order to help it grow. So, every link you share and promotion you run is one step closer to success. Just remember your determination and hard work will pay off.
When you are first getting started, you should focus on a specific niche or topic and promote affiliate programs that are related to that market. For instance, you could focus on pet related products, self-help books or moneymaking topics.
It’s not a good idea to sign up for a wide range of programs on different topics because you won’t be able to focus your efforts on targeted promotions.
So start with a single market, and promote products that appeal to it. Once it starts making money you can branch out to other niches if you want too.
Always do your research and select the best affiliate programs for your niche. You want to choose programs that are rewarding, reliable and have a good reputation for paying on time.
Look for sellers who offer high quality, well-priced products as well as promo tools and swipe files that you can use to promote their products. This will make is easier for you to sell their products or programs.
Another good tip is to look for affiliate programs that offer recurring commissions to their products with nice monthly payouts.
As I mentioned in your last lesson, 50% is good. These types of products can lead to nice amounts of passive income that can continue even after your initial promotion because you’ll earn a commission from the initial sale and regular payments for as long as that customer remains active.
Membership sites are an excellent place to start if you want to earn recurring commissions.
- Create a promotional strategy for your business.
For example, many affiliate marketers build a website or blog focused on their chosen niche, and use it to publish high quality content, reviews and recommendations that are related to the products they are planning to promote.
If you decide to go this route all of the content you publish should be focused on the affiliate programs or products you recommend and getting your visitors to click on your affiliate links.
This is called content marketing and it is an excellent way to establish a solid foundation for your business.
If you want to get some good ideas of how this works just do a search online for any product along with the word review and you will return lists of sites that are run by affiliates.
Here is an example, do a search for P90x. As I’m writing there are currently more than ten pages of results in Google alone and most of them are affiliate run sites.
If you have a niche in mind for your business, start doing some research on this method and think about how you can incorporate a website into your promotional strategy.
In lesson 3 we will be talking about few more strategies that will help you build a profitable affiliate business.
You can learn the basics here in my onsite free guide for How to do Affiliate Marketing Online, and I have also published a book that covers the best and most simple affiliate marketing plan, to make sure you have the best chance of being a success in Internet Marketing and Blogging
It is written by someone I have known personally for nearly a decade, who earns a minimum of $400 USD *per DAY*.... YES, not per month, but per DAY from her various online business income streams.
So maybe this is someone we should be listening to, and I have her step-by-step instruction guide here for only a few dollars, not thousands of dollars in "Coaching" from some Guru.
Isn't it time you started to actually earn some money from your affiliate marketing and online business ventures?
