Affiliate Marketing 101

Why Affiliate Marketing?

Affiliate marketing is a type of performance-based marketing in which a business rewards one or more affiliates for each visitor or customer brought by the affiliate's own marketing efforts. This is by far the easiest way to make money online you just need the "know how" with the right tools.

Getting Started

One of the first things you should do as an affiliate marketer is to build you own website. Yes, you can market affiliate programs without it by adding links to your email or signature file on message boards, but you will be very limited in how much you can earn this way.

Building a website allows you to expose the products you are promoting to a much larger audience with less effort. If you missed this step you can read more about it here.

Choosing the Right offer

With hundreds and hundreds of affiliate products to choose from, how do you choose the best affiliate products to promote that are a good fit for your business and your audience?

Keep in mind, it's your reputation at stake. If you promote a useless product, your audience will lose their trust in you and it will be more difficult to promote and sell other affiliate products to them in the future.

Do Your Homework

The first thing to do when choosing affiliate products to promote is to do some homework. Have a look at what others with related websites or blogs are focusing on. Go to forums to see what readers are chatting about, what their preferred products are in that group, and what they grumble about most.

Promote Appropriate Products For Your Niche

Does the affiliate product you looking to promote match properly with your website and niche? Naturally, if you have a website about photography you don't want to start promoting baking products. If you are an expert at taking photos of landscapes, then your website visitors may want to use the same camera that you are using.

Use Trustworthy Affiliate Companies

As an affiliate, you associate yourself with the product vendor. So you want to make certain that you're associating yourself with a trustworthy affiliate company. Keep in mind, that you're promoting their products for them and they will only pay you when you make a sale. So they should really provide support with marketing resources to help you sell their products. Below is few of the best affiliate companies available where you can get started for free right away.

How Much Commission Will You Earn?

There are different methods of payment that you can get as an affiliate. For instance, you can get pay out on a flat rate or you can be given a percentage of the total product cost. There is also the prospect to receive recurring commissions assuming that a customer carries on paying for a monthly service.

Conversion Rates

When searching for products and services to promote as an affiliate, check out the conversion rates. The conversion rate means how many potential consumers actually turn into buyers. If a product has products with a high conversion rate then the product may be worth looking at more closely. I will leave a video at the bottom of this article to show you how to setup your first campaign.

Try The Product For Yourself

If you are a specialist in your niche and have a group of followers that know, like and trust you, you can review products for them to consider buying. If you're genuine and respected and have established a good relationship with your audience, then it's likely that if you recommend something that you have used or tried, then your visitors will be more prepared to also use or buy that item.

Companies are happy to pay commissions to people just like you, in return for selling their products and services. You have the potential to make a great income when you choose the right niche, stay committed, and understand your audience.
