I. Affiliate marketing guides

A lot of people who view my blog are interested in affiliate marketing. If youre not, you probably shouldnt be here anyway. I do my best to give people useful tips and information about succeeding with their first few websites, and today Im going to cover how to start affiliate marketing for free.

Yes I have my own services and it might be counter-productive to teach you this. However some of you arent going to be ready to spend money straight away, and others just want to know if its for them. This post is for you guys!

I have to assume that you already know about making money online with affiliate promotions and all that. If you dont, you can take a look at my page: affiliate marketing beginners.Three Things You Need To Start Affiliate Marketing

There are going to be so many things that people tell you are essential to succeeding with a niche website. Youll be exposed to a lot of offers and promotions. That just happens.

Really though, there are only a handful of things that are essential. Things that you absolutely need if you want to make money online.

Here they are:1. A Website.

Your website is your business. Dont let anyone tell you that you dont need a website to do affiliate marketing. If you want to SUCCEED with affiliate marketing you definitely need one.

The good news is, you can get one for free in many places. The place I recommend is Wealthy Affiliate, since their websites and training is all catered around affiliate marketing. It doesnt make sense to go anywhere else.2. Keyword Research Tools.

When it comes to choosing a niche (topic) for your website, youre going to need to do a lot of research. There are free tools like Google Adwords tool, or even Google Instant, and then there are tools that actually help you, like Jaaxy or Long Tail Pro.

Luckily for you, both of them have a free trial. I recommend Jaaxy to get started, its the most beginner friendly.3. Training.

As I said earlier, I assume you already know why you want to get involved with affiliate marketing, but do you really know how to do it and how to find out more?

Again Im going to recommend Wealthy Affiliate to you here, because it has a free starter membership where you can learn the basics without spending a penny. It fulfills the criteria of this post perfectly.

Getting Started

When you first start out, its very easy to enter into the wrong niche. Youll hear all sorts of people telling you to go with your passion, or go with what you know. This is great advice, but its not the be-all and end-all of niche selection.

Spencer from Nichepursuits has written an excellent guide to the importance of keyword research for niche selection here. Get yourself a free Jaaxy trial and head over to read more.

Equally, joining Wealthy Affiliate will get you started on the right path as well.Is It Possible To Succeed For Free?

This is a question I see a lot. Many people are willing to spend money on their busienss, but they want to make the money first. Its kind of a chicken and egg situation really. Can you make money without spending money? Yes, but it might take a while and theres no guarantee.

So will you make money if you spend money? Not necessarily!

The best approach is to get started for free. Learn as much as you can and see if this is the type of business for you. When youre ready to take things to the next level, spend some more money. Let me build a site for you, upgrade your site to an owned domain, join the premium membership at WA, or simply buy some more training.

II. Affiliate marketingstrategies

Affiliate marketing is a low-cost way for merchants to build awareness and showcase their products and services. The model is simple; it works as a commission-based referral system. A partner or affiliate markets a merchant's products for a "piece of the pie."

Affiliate marketing experts often make an income that can tally over five figures per month, however only 1 to 5% of thousands of marketers achieve this level. When an affiliate reaches this elite level they are often referred to as a "super" affiliate.How does one become a super affiliate? Can anyone do it? Super affiliates have common tactics that they embrace and put into place. Anyone can become a super affiliate, but it will not come without blood, sweat, and a hefty time commitment. The typical super affiliate possesses the following traits: Persistence Patience Thirst for Knowledge

These three traits combined with the following strategy gives you the formula for the makings of a "super" affiliate.

1. Find a Unique NicheThe mistake that many affiliate marketing hopefuls have in common is that they try to offer everything under the sun rather than focusing on a specific niche market. Do not scatter your efforts, focus on your niche, promote it, and sell it well.

2. Search Engine MarketingOnce you've built your affiliate storehouse you will need to promote it. Many affiliates use pay-per-click engines. I suggest that you learn how to achieve organic search results or hire a search engine marketing company. This will save you from spending all your profits on pay-per-click engines. Only use pay-per-click engines if you know what you are doing, otherwise all your profits may end in the hands of Google Adwords or Overture.

3. Know Your Product, Know Your AudienceCreate a resource. By taking the time to learn about the products and/or services that you are offering you can create information that builds your credibility. That credibility builds trust. If your viewers do not have trust in you more than likely they will not purchase from your storehouse. If you want more information on the psychological process that an online buyer goes through I suggest that you read my article on the Five Levels of Internet Marketing and the Sales Process. This will help you in creating a web site that converts well, which in return will increase your cash flow.

4. Don't Put All Your Eggs in One Basket

Promote products from different merchants. This way if you have a problem with receiving payment from a merchant, or their products do not convert well the effects on your business will be minimal. Watch out for exclusivity agreements; remember this is your business. Protect yourself and diversify so that you do not feel the famine effect if something goes wrong. There is absolutely nothing wrong with promoting niche products from different merchants.

5. Seek Knowledge and Embrace Change

If you are familiar with Internet marketing at all you know that what worked three months ago may not work today. Stay on top of the trends. Seek knowledge, start by learning something new about affiliate marketing daily. For example remember those marketing tools called "banner" that use to drive sales at an astronomical rate a few years ago? Well those banners developed a term called "banner blindness." That means most online viewers will not click on banners even if they do pertain to what they are looking for. To be a "super" affiliate you must always spend time reading, learning, and embracing the changes in Internet marketing.

6. Don't Give Up

It's hard to do, and most of the time those dabbling in affiliate marketing give up way too soon. Monitor your statistics, watch to see what is working and what is not. Make changes when necessary. Do one thing daily to promote your storehouse and be patient. Before you know it you will start getting payments.Remember that it will not happen overnight. Encompass and develop the persistence, patience, and knowledge. Then follow the tactics I've mentioned above and you are on your way to becoming a "super" affiliate.
