The time has come. You're tired of the rat race and ready to start making money online. Affiliate marketing seems the right fit for you. But where do you start? Here are 5 steps to making 6 figures as an affiliate marketer.
Find Your Niche
Everyday, millions of blogs publish millions of posts. How do you get noticed? Find your niche. Blogging about everything attracts no one. Ask yourself a few questions. What interests you? Is your topic popular but not overdone? Does your topic have evergreen potential or is it just a fad? Are there enough marketing and affiliate opportunities for your topic?
Find Affiliate Opportunities
Finding the right affiliate opportunities for your blog is one of the most important steps. Try talking directly with retailers in your niche. Check their websites for information or send an email. You can also check out online affiliate marketplaces like ClickBank or ShareASale.
Develop the Right Content
In the old days, affiliate marketers would often stuff their posts with links. Today, too many links will annoy your readers and give you bad marks with search engines, making you harder to find.
Solid content with a few carefully placed links is key. For instance, write reviews about a favorite product. Then, use an affiliate link to redirect readers to that product. Just make sure you put in a disclaimer somewhere. Most people are fine with you making a cut off their purchases. They just want to know about it.
Spread the Word
With so many websites in the cybersphere, you have to find ways to get noticed. Use keywords in your posts to make them more searchable on Google. Comment on other people's blogs, especially ones in your niche. Start social media accounts linked to your site. And open an account on an email marketing website and start a campaign.
Frequent posting is important. Just make sure you don't set such a frenetic pace for yourself that you burn out and quit. Find a system you can stick with and stay consistent.
If you follow a few basic steps and work hard you can develop a 6 figure income with your affiliate marketing.
