Affiliate’s Basic Foundation Set Up


If you have decided to become an affiliate, great, the journey begins. I am with you and so are thousands of websites telling you on all the steps you should be taking to be a successful and smart affiliate marketer.  Just go ahead and google it and then come back and read my blog.

Yes, there are heaps of information about affiliate marketing. Wait, don’t get excited and start browsing all the sites. Because you will lose focus on what you actually want to do and go in all different directions. It happened to me and I have joined many sites and have lost lot of valuable time and track. So slow down and if you follow my steps, then you are in it for the long run.

First understand your role as an affiliate marketer. You are going to recommend a product based on your in depth analysis or by experience to a customer who is interested in your opinions. Here you should be very transparent and try to help the customer instead if you push the product, without the knowledge of the product, blinded by the commission you will earn, then that’s the last time you are going to see that customer and they will never trust you again. So basically you need create that trust and confidence of your visitors who are going to be your prospect customers, and that’s going to take sometime.

Once the role is clear, you need to create a website. nicheYou can create here in wordpress or blogger for that you need to decide on your “Niche”. (You will hear this a lot as an affiliate) Niche means a topic that you are interested in or its your passion. Now having an interest or passion that people may not be interested or not keen about it, is of no use, so you need to decide a niche that people are looking for and at the same you are also interested to talk about it and want to experience yourself. How to find that out? Well! you need do some good old brainstorming session or using keyword research in google and come up with your niche.

The Power of an affiliate


It’s not very often, I jump in to be part of something. I am very cautious about my time and money. When it came to looking for a job online, it was a huge challenge and time-consuming just to see what was happening whilst I was busy getting married and having a baby.

When I was looking at the information at google pages and ads, I was dazed and confused. As I was browsing through night after night, months went by and I was frustrated, and I started to think that all the people who made money online must be experts to sell their skills. Internet is not the place for a common novice home maker like me. I should get back to good old manual labour. Yet I kept looking that there’s something out there for me.

Gradually, I started to look at things differently. All of  a sudden, the term Affiliate Marketing started to reveal itself slowly and , when I went deep and completely learnt the job of an affiliate marketer. I decided to become one. Come to think of it, Affiliate Marketing has been there forever in other forms without internet.  Affiliate Marketing has become a very powerful method now and even smaller companies have started to adapt.
