Make money from affiliate marketing as early as this week

2016-03-07 21:25

In my previous article I outlined five legitimate ways that just about anyone can make money online. Affiliate marketing wasn't one of those ways, but it is one of the most talked about and mysterious way to make money online so I'll go over it in this article.

In the article I'll comment on some of the important nuances of affiliate marketing that people tend to encounter in the real world because I already have a very full and complete video tutorial on affiliate marketing that you can watch here:

After watching this tutorial you will have a very good beginning foundation for what affiliate marketing is, how you can get products to resell, what kind of a niche to get into, and what the common pitfalls are. It might seem that you have nothing to stop you or stand in your way, right? Well, almost right. You need a website from which you will need to resell your affiliate products.

You might assume that a website will cost you a lot of money to create, and that might hold you back. But these days that isn't true anymore. Basic website hosting and creation have become very cheap and common now. Just check out my tutorial on how to set up a website on your own within just a day or two.

Now that the website shouldn't be a problem, what is your next barrier to get started?

Many people find the actual process of starting to be daunting and confusing. So let me give you a little checklist of things to go through in order, so that you can simply follow this checklist and actually be started with your affiliate business when you are done with this list:

  1. Find your business niche and industry in which you want to do business in
  2. Consult with a lawyer on whether you should register your business and how you should register it. This will depend on the country, city and state in which you are in.
  3. Create your website (you already know how to do that)
  4. Get traffic and a loyal audience
  5. Choose the right products for your audience
  6. Make money

Most people skip step 4 and don't focus enough on step 5. And that is why most people ultimately fail with affiliate marketing. Getting and retaining a loyal set of customers is the most difficult part of affiliate marketing. It takes real work and a strong effort over time.

If you are not an Internet nerd like I am, you might not be too experienced in getting traffic online beyond the basic ideas of getting traffic from Facebook and Twitter. Not only is that not enough, but you have to be savvy about how you get traffic from Facebook and Twitter as well.

If you are new to getting traffic online, I want to invite you to browse the my great Udemy coupons list for discounts on my online marketing and business courses. And here is an additional list of my best Udemy coupons on some top marketing and business courses.

Try to get started on my list of the first 6 things you can do and see how far you can get. I'll be writing more about starting your business and making money online in future posts. So for now see what you can accomplish on your own, and I'll try to give you more support in future articles.
