How to Make Money With Affiliate Marketing

I often get asked this question “How to Make Money With Affiliate Marketing” and I usually answer with the following brief explanation as to what Affiliate Marketing actually is.  So here it is “Affiliate marketing is the process of promoting another company’s products or services for a commission”.  See, it’s really quite simple, and it is one of the best ways to make money online and is one of the methods I have been using to make money on the internet since I began way back in 2007.

If you were to ask me what I like best about affiliate marketing, I would more than likeky say that it’s because it’s a very simple and transparent online business model, especially good for beginners to begin earning an income online relatively quickly. The simplicity is in the fact that all you really need to do to start is to create a useful, content rich and niche relevant website that provides information, and then casually recommend products that are relevant to your visitors/traffic.

As a good example, let’s say your website, or Blog is about reviewing Mobile Technology. You could start quite easily by joining Best Buy’s affiliate program www.bestbuy.com and earn a commission when someone purchases a product through your affiliate link on your website.

A Simple Affiliate Marketing Tip.

One of the keys to succeeding with Affiliate Marketing is to create a content-rich and niche relevant website or Blog, full of useful information which as a result of the keyword research  you have carried out, you know people are searching for online.

So it is absolutely pointless to just throw up a quick website or blog, fill it full of useless affiliate links and hope that people will buy (assuming of course that you can drive enough traffic to it in the first place) as this will be a waste of your time and money.

The absolute best way is to write about something of interest to you, build some credibility in the marketplace or niche, and only promote relevant products that you are using yourself, or that you have used with success in the past. For example, if you where to write about Autoresponders and you use Aweber as your provider, and you are very happy with the service you receive, then this would be a good product to promote to your visitors and subscribers.  So instead of doing the hard-sell you are subtly recommending products and services that are relevant with the subject or topic you are writing about on your website or blog. Eventually of course you may want to create your own products to promote, which of course builds your credibility even higher, but this is another topic which I will cover at a later date.

Affiliate Programs/Networks.

Now, I am an affiliate of many networks such as Empower Network,  Chris Farrell MembershipCommission JunctionClickbank,  and more.  However it’s really not about the network or program,  it’s more about the relevant products and services you promote on your website or blog.

So, as another example, if your website or blog is about dogs, you would search the various affiliate networks and look for products that relate to your dog themed website or blog.(it’s not rocket science guys) grab your affiliate code (more about affiliate codes here) from your account, paste it into your site and you can begin earning from the referrals in your blog posts when somebody purchases through your affiliate link. It Really IS NOT About The Affiliate Program.

Another question I almost ALWAYS get asked is “which affiliate program should I join in order to make the most money”, and that’s a question I can never answer, and the reason why is, it’s NOT about the affiliate program because you can earn a great income online with many of the affiliate programs available today, but what REALLY  matters is whether the affiliate program your are using provides products or services which are relevant to you niche and therefore your website or blog.

If you are simply looking for the most profitable affiliate program and couldn’t careless about the quality of the programs or products you are promoting, then I can tell you right now that you are already starting off on the wrong foot, and are doomed to failure. It’s about finding relevant products and services that you know will solve a problem and are absolutely relevant to the marketplace or niche you are in.

If you can generate enough of the right targeted traffic, you can sell almost anything you want on your website or blog, but don’t get caught up in the affiliate program, focus on providing quality niche relevant products that are congruent with the traffic you send.
