How to Learn Affiliate Marketing Online
Create a website:
You can use a blog if you desire but there is so much benefit to having your own website. There is a lot of things you need to know when you choose to create a website. I will give you all the information you need to know to make sure you can make a scam free decision. It really is not difficult at all, in fact, when you have all the knowledge you need it becomes easy.
This is the easy part, there are a lot of places to get a domain name these days, and a lot of varying on pricing. My advice is to never pay for a domain name monthly. You should purchase your domain and own it. I personally would not spend over $20 for a domain name.
Once you have purchased your domain you need a site to host it, there are some places to host your domain fairly inexpensive, be careful with this as search engines benchmark your speed, not only on computers but on mobile devices as well. Cheap hosting services tend to fall short in this category, and with my experiences the email services provided for your domain can show up in people’s spam box. I have personally experienced this.
You can check a website’s hosting speed by using google.com Page Speeds insight. There are other things that can slow down your site other than your hosting service such as large images and Page Speed insights will recommend what you need to fix.
Decide Your Niche:
Your niche is simply a specialized piece of a marketplace. When choosing your niche it should be an item you are comfortable with. An example for myself would be to become an affiliate marketer for organic gardening. I am a passionate organic gardener always looking for ways to improve what I do, making it easy for me to help others avoid the same mistakes that I have made.
Find Your Product or Service:
There is way to many Affiliate programs to cover in this post but whatever your niche is you can google and see how many hits it gets on your search. Virtually anything you come up with for a niche you will have an opportunity to make money in your category.
Affiliate Site Content:
It does get more important here, you do not want a cookie cutter website, search engines will realize this. You don’t want to pay for a ready-made turnkey site as everyone else trying the same opportunity will also receive the same template. You want to present your site as being unique to the web so it draws good attention, not cookie cutter.
Attracting Targeted Traffic:
To make money on an Affiliate Site you need to attract a large quantity of targeted traffic. The greater the traffic to your website the higher the income potential. To generate large volumes of traffic you need real good Search Engine Optimization (SEO), and a great way to research and find the very important keywords you need for search engine traffic.
Have a Solid Community:
You need to be a part of a community where help is available when you need it. A community where you can personally contact the owner. It is very important to have the environment where even a beginner can feel comfortable, design their own site and be proud of your accomplishments.
