Affiliate marketing is the way to get started selling products on the internet. By watching what other marketers are doing, you can learn the right way to do business on the internet. It also gives you a product to market before you have one of your own. Here are some ideas on how you can get started.
Take a look at the products and courses you have purchased since coming online. There may be one or two that have helped you to achieve some success. Find out if there is an affiliate program – most of us have one – and then sign up. My favorite product to promote is an eBook on 20 ways to make $100 a day on the internet. It sells for $27. You become an instant affiliate when you purchase it and can then sell it to others. I have learned so much from this eBook – it’s 247 pages long – and recommend it highly. It was written by several people who represent some of the great minds in internet marketing. The person behind this information is the great Willie Crawford.
Now you will want to purchase a domain name to use for your affiliate link. This will cost you about $10 and is the only cost you will incur when you market in this way. Forward and mask the domain name to your link. Test it first to make sure it goes where you want it to go. Make sure your domain has a keyword phrase related to the product you will be promoting.
You can promote the product in a variety of ways. When I was brand new on the internet I used article marketing and my blog. Now we also have Twitter and Facebook where we can market our products. You can also hold a teleseminar to let people know about the product. As you build your list, let them know about what you are doing. Make sure to disclose that you are an affiliate for the product and that you will earn a commission if they make a purchase.
Over time you will create your own products and services, but it is always a good idea to consider affiliate marketing as part of your multiple streams of online income.
