The Beginner’s Guide


The Beginner’s guide to Affiliate marketing covers the strategies on how affiliate marketing works.  Will walk you through step-by-step on how to start a website that makes money through affiliate marketing.


Affiliate marketing is the process of building  and maintaining a website that reviews products via writing content.

This content would have links to an online store (such as Amazon) where readers would then purchase the product and you earn revenue through commissions.

The more often you direct visitors to your website,the more income you could potentially earn. An effective way to drive traffic to your website is through the search engines.

The goal is to get your website ranked on the first page of Google for your targeted keyword. When this happens large amounts of search engine traffic will end up at your website and therefore earn more revenue.

From there, you simply need to scale the process.  SEO=MORE TRAFFIC=MORE COMMISSIONS=MORE MONEY


The great thing about affiliate marketing is that anyone can do it regardless of age. In essence anyone can earn revenue with affiliate marketing as long as the person is willing to learn and take action.

It is important to have a good foundation on how affiliate marketing works and the techniques used to attract an audience to your website.

The beginner’s guide to affiliate marketing will help you understand how it all works and get you started with building your first affiliate website.

Now that your websites constructed,you can start adding content. Content is critical, and this is where you will spend most of your time.
Since you’ve already done your niche research and have your keywords in place you should have a good idea on which articles to write.This is really where your website comes to life.
If you engage readers with great content they will come back and read more of your content as you create it.
Social media is also a very important way to share your content and let others know it’s there. This is key to driving traffic to your site.

Now that you have written and shared content you can begin to analyze your traffic. You will be able to edit your content if necessary or just identify things you may not want to do next time..

The last part to put in place for your website would be to add affiliate marketing,so you will have a way to earn money from your website.
The reason this is the last part is because most affiliates want to see your site,read some of your content and get an idea of the amount of traffic you have from visitors to your site.
There are many methods you can take depending on your niche. I will continue to update you guys and add information about this and share what works and what doesn’t work.
Once you are comfortable with your first website have your content on a schedule and have good traffic you could consider another website.
A new niche may also mean new opportunities with other affiliate programs,but wait until you have enough content.
