Affiliate marketing is a great way to make a living because you are your own boss and can decide how you spend your time as well as money, but at the same time affiliate marketing enables you to promote anything that you want because there are affiliate programs and offers which are related to really any niche that you can think of.
This article is going to explain how to make money online with affiliate marketing with no sales pitch, refreshing isn’t it?
The first thing you need in how to make money online in affiliate marketing is a website. I like to use WordPress which is a free blogging software which makes setting up and managing a website a breeze, even if you’ve never done it before and or consider yourself to be technologically impaired. I’m going to link to a resource at the end of this article to show you exactly how to set up an attractive website for free using WordPress in under 10 minutes.
You can choose from thousands of free themes which are basically different designs for your website which get set up as quickly as with one click of your mouse.
After your website is set up, you need to sign up for some affiliate networks with products and other offers which you can promote on your website which are related to the focus or subject matter of your website. You can do a simple Google search plus the phrase “affiliate” to find offers and things which you can promote or you can use a free service like Offervault which gives you a listing of affiliate products and offers which relate to your keyword of choice and this enables you to search across multiple affiliate networks at once to find the one with the best offer for you to promote so you can sign up just for that one network specifically knowing that it has what you want to promote.
Now you just need to write about whatever it is that you are promoting on your website. You can create a review of that product on your website and then send the traffic of anyone who comes to your website to the actual product’s web page via your affiliate link.
After you’ve done all of this, it’s really just a matter of bringing in traffic towards your webpage. You can write articles on article directories like right here on EzineArticles, you can purchase traffic on major advertising networks online like Google or Facebook, or you can tap any number of the hundreds of other traffic sources which are out there waiting for you.
