So you’ve heard about affiliate marketing or the internet business model and you’re not sure what the real deal is.
Well in this article I want to you give you the low down on how the affiliate marketing business really works.
Firstly, you do need to invest a bit of money to get started. Don’t waste your time with free storage space and free domains, if you’re serious about affiliate marketing, then you need the right tools straight from the start. Go and buy hosting and a domain name. A lot of hosting providers provide a free domain with their package, so choose wisely. Your domain name should be based on your niche or your topic, don’t get too fussed about keyword research just yet..
Next, content – Will you write some good content about your topic? or will you get some of your outsourcers to do it? The rule here is numbers, you will need to write or get written 200 articles to get anywhere in this market. The three main types of content I recommend content for your website, content for article directories and content for your email series.
Set your website up, with something easy like WordPress and get a free theme.
Now, how do you make money? Monetize. Go to ClickBank, Paydotcom and get your free accounts. I recommend starting with AdSense or amazon just to to see some money trickling before you get into some advanced tactics.
So now you got a website, with at least 50 articles, maybe seeing some good traffic on your website. Well Done. But how to do you really get some traffic to your site. You need to think big and wide here. Think Facebook, Twitter, article marketing, profile commenting YouTube, the sky is the limit. BUT, you actually need to do these things and this is where most people fail.
However, if you want to succeed, this is where you have to step your game up and go all out. Remember no traffic means you’ve simply wasted your time on the whole process. If you are new or just starting out in affiliate marketing you need to start doing the basic things I’ve mentioned above, but starting learning and creating your own angles on the advanced affiliate marketing methods and that’s how you make the big bucks.
