Getting Started With Affiliate Marketing
The first thing you are going to need is an online presence and the best way I recommend to establish it is with your own website.
You can do this by building the website yourself if you are an experienced web master or you can find someone to hire and outsource to make it for you.
This website is going to be a self hosted website where it focuses on the niche you’ve chosen whether that be health and wellness, mindset and personal development, spiritual, work from home moms, or business opportunity seekers etc.
I’ll tell you what I did, I actually purchased a domain name and hosting through Siteground and created a blog through WordPress.
Starting your own personally branded blog is a very popular strategy we have leveraged to attract the right types of prospects and generate our own leads to grow our email list.
Getting Started With Affiliate Marketing | Final thoughts
Now here is the truth and nothing but the truth you need to have money to make money. This means you must have just enough of marketing budget to pay for your start-up costs for your new affiliate marketing business to get off the ground.
The costs are far lower for us digital entrepreneurs versus those who have to spend hundreds of thousands for a brick and mortar business that comes with inventory, royalty fees, and really high overhead.
You must have a COMPUTER and good enough INTERNET Connection. I have coached so many students and when we get to the part of recommending to have a computer they are trying to build a business on their tablets and mobile devices. NOOOO! it’s a business it’s not a swipe business.
You will be paying for domain name, hosting and the website annually. So keep that in mind as these are tax deductible if you are running your business from home.
So now you know all that it entails which type of affiliate products do you want to market is the question. Do you want to sell a physical product, a service that benefits your customer or a digital educational product?
For us we decided to go with marketing digital products such as training courses and business systems through an affiliate network. Affiliate networks give you access to popular products and they automate the entire process so that you don’t have to communicate directly with the vendor. In other words, they streamline the entire process so you don’t have to handle the workload all you do is drive traffic to your affiliate link and follow up with your buyers with communication online through email.
