Affiliate Marketing – How Do I Start?
How do I start with Affiliate Marketing? A lot of my subscribers are asking me this same question.
Many people from all walks of life are deciding to take a shot at internet marketing, and there is certainly nothing wrong with that. However, with this huge amount of people coming into the online business world, there is a large number who don’t have any idea where to start.
The First thing you need to know when you are starting in the Affiliate Marketing online business is that you should join an Affiliate Marketing teaching program. These programs are not free, but considering the amount of money and energy they will help you save by avoiding huge mistakes, there are worth it. I can testify for myself that if I had joined one of these programs when I first started I would have never have to file bankruptcy because of the debts I put myself into trying the wrong way.
The second thing you need to decide is what niche you want to promote. Example of niches could be: Pets, travel, beauty products, housing, dating, insurance, recreation, etc… there are just as many niches as you can think of. Once you’ve got your niche, just pick one to three products in that niche.
The third thing is to create a free blog and web 2.0 WebPages. Once you have your niche and products, you need to create a free blog and free WebPages such as Squidoo, Hubpages, Weebly, etc… These pages will be meant to promote your products.
The fourth thing you will need to do once you’ve created a handful of free web pages is write articles and post them on the free article directories. Make sure that those articles are not promoting your product specifically, but your niche in general. Write articles only to help and inform people about your niche. Promote your product ONLY in your resource box. (The space where you are allowed to talk about your product at the bottom of the article).
The fifth thing you need to do is purchase a domain name. Once you’ve made a few sales and have a rolling campaign, it will be time for you to purchase a domain name that will be linked to a real blog or website, which will be hosted with some very cheap and efficient hosting programs. The reason why you want to get there eventually, is because your hosted website will be 100% under your control, and will be safe as long as you maintain your domain name and hosting in service.
These are the five EASY steps that you should take to start a successful Affiliate Marketing campaign.
