“Introduction To Affiliate Marketing”
If you are remotely interested in becoming an online affiliate marketer then you probably already know what Affiliate Marketing involves. In it’s simplest form, You are a salesman who markets products to potential customers and then sell for a cut of the profits. Affiliate Marketers who do this typically can make anything from 8% too 75% of the product, depending on who you end up selling for. The end result is the person/company who provides the product doesn’t have to worry about advertising but just pays You, the Affiliate to Market and sell his product. You make the sale and walk away with a cut of the profits, the producer of the product walks away with his profit and didn’t have to do all the hard work of marketing. Win win. That in a nutshell is Affiliate Marketing. Good, or Good!

If you are like a lot of wanna be Affiliate Marketers you may have already driven down this road but never really drove onto the fast lane so to speak. Maybe you got this bright idea and without any real knowledge jumped in head first and tried promoting products that failed dismally.

Also don’t expect to get rich overnight. Affiliate Marketing isn’t easy and it isn’t for everyone. I’m not trying to put you off but you need to be realistic and understand it will take time, some long hours and plenty of dedication if you want to quit your day job and spend your time working from home full time. Those negatives aside, lets get to the good stuff.
“What do I promote!”
Its true the saying “If you fail to plan then you plan to fail”. All serious plans require just that. A plan. The Affiliate Marketing Business is no different. The first thing you are going to need is a plan of “What” You want to affiliate with and sell. How do you decide this?
There are several ways, one way is to figure out what you are passionate about and find a “niche” that suits what you love. How do you decide this? Think of what you like doing, do you garden, fish, hike, travel, get involved in business, real estate, building and other trades? What about hobbies. Do you collect anything? Comics, pottery, books, guitars, cars, figurines? The list is as endless as your hobbies or passions.
It seems plenty of people are promoting ways to make money online and yes it is one of the fastest growing industries today, the “Make Money Online” niche. You would think that the market would be saturated, but believe me their is ample room for a well educated entrepreneur. When I say well educated I’m not meaning someone with a college degree. No, what I mean is someone who knows his Marketing skills. Don’t worry, you will learn all this. Remember, stay on the road.
So first you need to find a Niche that you would be happy in and love to work with. Now you need to find a product to promote that is going to be financially beneficial to you. You can use Google to find products. Just put what you are interested in and beside it put “affiliate”, so if you were interested in health, search for “health products affiliate” which returns about 27,000,000 results. Theirs bound to be something their. You can refine it to say “weight loss” or “cancer products”, “diabetes”, “ADHD” and so forth. The possibilities are endless.
“Build A Website!”
So the next step once you’ve found something you want to promote is to build a website to promote your business products from. Ok I hear some of you’s now saying “Why do I need a Website?” Don’t most affiliate programs provide their own websites? Yes that is true … BUT … you want to be a success right??
It is possible to become a success without your own website, but highly unlikely. If you want to achieve Real Success as an Affiliate Marketer, this is a “Crucial Tool” you just can’t do without. It’s kind of like driving a car without tyres. The rides gonna be Really, Really Rough and the chances of arriving at your destination are slim to slim. You need the right vehicle. I mean are you serious about Affiliate Marketing? So yes, your own website is really essential no matter what anybody tells you. You will get to your destination 100 times faster with the right tools. Or you may never get there at all.
Building a website today is really easy. You don’t have to know html or coding or anything fancy. Basically all you will need is a “Domain Name” and “Hosting” and the right platform. This is probably the most crucial part of the puzzle. The right platform.
