How To Start Affiliate Marketing For Newbies
So, with just a week left before the move, I returned to affiliate marketing. I had been taking courses on how to get started affiliate marketing, and it was really good information. I learned a lot of great ideas that I can use now, and they will make me much more successful than I was before. I learned how to make money online, and that is what I wanted to do. I joined a few programs too, but I decided to stick with affiliate marketing because it was the simplest, fastest and easiest way for me.
I found a couple of different programs that would be perfect for me. One of them was Niche Blogger, which gave me the ability to find my target audience. Now, niche blogs are very powerful tools, and I was able to find one that had tons of readers in it already. That audience can be your loyal audience that you have waiting for your affiliate offers to be sent out. This will convert much better than just trying to sell products to the masses.
The other program was CopyScape. This allowed me to create affiliate links in my blog posts. Once those were approved, I could just write my affiliate link and send it to my readers. I didn’t have to wait to see if someone else signed up. I just put my affiliate link in my post, and my readers could click through right away. If they were interested enough, I would get a commission for the sale.
These two programs gave me a jumpstart on my learning curve, and now I have even more questions about earning potential with affiliate links. After my earnings were up, I compared my earnings to some other marketers who had the same niche as me and it seemed like my earnings were much higher. This just goes to show you that even after a month or two, earning potential with niche blogs is still growing.
It’s important for any marketer to know that the best way to get started in affiliate marketing is to be exposed to multiple sources of content. If you only have a single source of income, like a blog, you’re limiting yourself. You can start getting your name and website out there without spending any money to get started. As your readership grows, and you have an established audience, you can start thinking about selling products to that audience.
Affiliate programs usually offer commission deals for customers who refer new customers. Digital downloads are another way to get started with affiliate marketing because they are so easy to ship. Most digital downloads come with free shipping, so you can literally just send an email to the customer with the download links to the items you want them to purchase. After they pay for the digital download, you can then offer them a discount on your services or your own products. The commission you earn will be added into your account, giving you more profit for each sale.
