Affiliate Marketing For Beginners:
What is affiliate marketing?
Affiliate Marketing is an easy way of making money by referring people to purchase products or services online. More and more companies now a days are starting to use this form of marketing to reward affiliates for generating website visitors to their business. Since affiliates are only paid when sales are completed, it’s an extremely cost-effective tool.
Top 6 affiliate marketing tips beginners
1. Choosing the correct niche: This is one of the biggest determining factors of weather or not you’ll succeed in making any money online.
2. Find the proper affiliate program: When comparing affiliate programs in your selected niche, you should consider more than just the amount of commissions you’ll earn.
The two most important elements we believe make a successful affiliate campaign include:
a. Communication: Can you speak to the affiliate manager(s) in charge of the campaign? A good affiliate program will have a dedicated affiliate manager who should be easily accessible and responsible for helping you make money. (remember, when you make money, they make money)
b. Desire: Do the products or services you are considering promoting really stand out? Is ther a demand for the product or service? Will they convert visitors into sales?
3. Find a mentor: When first starting out there’s a steep learning curve. You need answers to questions like, “How to make a website”? “Which products should you promote”? “How can you get visitors to your website”? Once the visitors are on your site, how do you convert them into sales?
4. Join a community: In addition to a mentor you should also consider joining a community of like minded individuals. Here you can ask questions and get lots of unique feedback.
5. Get a free blog – Use a free blogging platform like WordPress or Blogger to create a site for free which can start to make you money. They’re completely free, can be setup in minutes and are extremely easy to use. I prefer WordPress as it looks more professional. But again, it depends on your needs.
6. Stay Focused – It’s very easy to get drawn into promoting lots of different products on the same site which, from a visitor’s point of view, can be confusing. I’d recommend sticking to one niche on each of your websites.
