Find a Unique NicheThe mistake that many affiliate marketing hopefuls have in common is that theytry to offer everything under the sun rather than focusing on a specific nichemarket. Do not scatter your efforts, focus on your niche, promote it, and sell itwell.2. Search Engine MarketingOnce you've built your affiliate storehouse you will need to promote it. Manyaffiliates use pay-per-click engines. I suggest that you learn how to achieve organicsearch results or hire a search engine marketing company. This will save you fromspending all your profits on pay-per-click engines. Only use pay-per-click enginesif you know what you are doing, otherwise all your profits may end in the hands ofGoogle Adwords or Overture.3.
