Most people don’t know how to start an affiliate marketing business. There are so many moving parts that it’s hard to figure out where to start. In this video I reveal the multiple components which comprise a successful business.
This whole process all begins with you and your passion. Your passion will be the driving force which breaks down any walls or barriers you may experience in your journey. Once you’ve established what your passion is, you then need to figure out what niche your passion applies to.
Another method you can consider is to create a list of things you’re interested in and then use the top three to determine what niche would be the best fit for you. You simply want to make sure that you go into a profitable niche so that way you can have a sustainable business.
Once your niche has been selected, you then need to find a high quality affiliate program which benefits your target market, as well as pays you a nice commission. This may take some time at first, but it will be well worth it in the end.
When it comes to starting in affiliate marketing business, there are going to be some extensive calculations you have to make in order for you to profit in the long run.
For example, having a blog is a great resource you can utilize to establish your authority in your niche. Once you have a quality product or service to recommend, you would then create content around that and build it up over time.
Now, you don’t always need a blog right away. You can actually start profiting with a simple page builder. The page builder gives you the opportunity to create unique landing pages as well as squeeze pages.
A squeeze page is used to collect emails and the way you do that is by integrating something known as an Autoresponder into the squeeze page.
An autoresponder is an automated email messaging system which sends out pre-made messages to people who opt into your squeeze page. This is the tool which is responsible for making sales on autopilot.
Now, in order to get people to opt into your squeeze page, you need to offer them something they value in exchange for their email. This is known as a lead magnet.
Once you have all of these items set up, the only thing you need to focus on after that is traffic. There are free traffic sources and paid traffic sources.
Paid traffic is known to yield results very quickly, whereas free traffic sources are more so centered around platforms which help you establish your authority over time.
Paid traffic can be seen as banner ads, YouTube ads, Google ads and so on, while free traffic can be seen as YouTube, Facebook and search engine traffic for a blog. Although it may seem like a lot, this is how to start an affiliate marketing business.
