With the adoption of the internet, it is becoming easier and easier for anyone who has access to a computer and internet connection to create an income online. Affiliate marketing is becoming one of the most popular methods, as an onlne business to start. From my experience, it is also one of the simplest because:
- There is no product inventory.
- It has a low startup cost.
- You can earn very quickly (If you learn how to do it right)
But like anything, affiliate marketing isn’t a get-rich-quick scheme. It is a lot of work, but the benefits are worth the effort.
A Little Bit Of My Background
Ten years ago, I was just like you. Searching for ways to earn an income online. At first I tried MLM, and that didn’t work for me, but eventually one of my mentors showed me that it was much easier to earn money through affiliate marketing than MLM.
I’ve taken several courses, read tons of books, and have launches a bunch of different affiliate blogs over the years, and I have make tons of affiliate commissions along the way. I’ve been there and done that.
Now, ten years later, I have gained the ability to basically “Print Cash” on Demand through affiliate marketing. Every blog I start basically operates like an ATM. If I am in need of money, I simply promote a new product, and then I get paid from the visitors who want to buy the products I show them. It is really amazing. Just keep reading this blog post, and I will show you how…
Step 1 To Become Affiliate Marketer Online
is to pick a niche that you want to focus on. What is a niche you might ask? Well it is basically a subset of a larger market that has their own interests and preferences. Some people pick their niche based around what their passions are, businesses they hace been involved in or are already knowledgeable about, or just know are easy to make a lot of money in.
Once you have picked a niche, you will want to think about what kinds of problems they are facing, and what kinds of answers they are looking for to the quesitons they have. You really want to get into the mindset of your target market. Something that some people do is actually try out the affiliate product that they want to promote. It can help you get a better grasp of what your target market’s wants and desires.
Step 2 To Become Affiliate Marketer Online
is to start a website that can be the hub of information for your affiliate product that you want to sell. WordPress is the best platform by far for creating blog-style websites. It is easy to use, and very versitile. It is really the best place to start.
All you really have to do is research what your target market has questions about, regarding your niche. In the blogging world, these questions that people ask, are what they call “Keywords”, because they are typically typing their quesions into Google, and those questions are called Keywords in Google’s eyes.
So bascially once you have an idea of all the questions you can think of, you answer their questions by creating 1 blog post for each question they have, and then each blog post should aim to point the reader in the direction to try out whatever affiliate product that you wish show them.
Step 3 To Become An Affiliate Marketer Online
is to send traffic (people in your niche) to your website. There are so many different avenues of traffic that you can use to send traffic to your website. Personally my favorite method is to get traffic from Google, Bing, and Yahoo search.
The way you send traffic to your website from Google, Bing, and Yahoo! is basically just publishing blog posts that answer your target market’s questions, Those blog posts get indexed by them, which makes it easy for them to be found by your target market. Then, when they click on your blog post, they become traffic to your website.
Using this method you can literally create unlimited income potential, depending on the number of blog posts you have created. For example, if each blog post gets 30 visitors per month, and you have 100 blog posts, you will get 3000 visitors per month!
With that kind of traffic, you can easily earn a part-time to even full-time income from affiliate marketing, depending on the profitability of the niche, and product that you chose.
Other than that, your website can also be found on social media websites, and online forums where your target market likes to hang out. It is best to have a well diversified portfolio of traffic sources at your disposal so that way you can maximize your chances at earning an affiliate commission.
Once your website visitor decides to buy the product you mentioned on your website, you will earn a commission.
It is really as simple as that.
There are a lot of little details along to way in order to get your first commission online from affiliate marketing. You know what they say…”The devil is in the details.” One little thing you forgot to do could ruin your chance at success. So I recommend you get some formal training.
