HOW TO START AFFILIATE MARKETING?
In this post we shall discuss about how to start Affiliate Marketing and how you can give it a real start with genuine ideas. If you are really looking forward to dive into Digital Marketing platform then Affiliate Marketing is one of the best ways to start earning money online. The main reason behind this is…
You don’t need to create your own product. You just need to promote the affiliate products and receive handsome commission. Creating a product can take a lot of time and therefore you need to avoid this time-consuming task and simply focus on earning money. In addition, you often don’t need to deal with the customer because you are referring them to another person’s website.
Customer Management can take a lot of time and can be quite aggravating, hence Not to Deal with The Client is a Huge Time Saver. The problem is the large majority of affiliate marketers fail to make significant money because they do not promote the product in a right way. Most of the time they look for a shortcut to start earning money instead of having patience to get expertise of doing real Affiliate Marketing.
For instance, one of my friends thought to start blogging and he did also but due to lack of patience he dropped it after a month time because he thought there is no profit even after giving a month time. This is the point where many bloggers surrender and leave it in the middle just because they want to earn profit in a very short time which is not possible in present scenario. The competition is very tough and you need to be consistent to develop yourself in this field.
Here is a tip to help you become profitable by doing Affiliate Marketing….
Some marketers decide to go into the niches that have no competition and this is a big problem because No Competition means No Demand for that Product or Service.
At a point, Competition is a good thing because it simply means that there is a Market for that Niche. Ideally you should choose a Niche for which you are passionate about because this way you would be able to provide the most value. So often Marketers try to promote those product or service which even they don’t like and fail because they cannot contribute anything useful.
The reality is providing value is imperative as your income more depend on it. The more value you can provide before recommending the affiliate product the more money you will make.
For example, if you are very much passionate about Mobile Phones then you can create a website like this https://www.digit.in/mobile-phones/
Or, if you are passionate about Shoes then you can get some ideas from this website https://runrepeat.com/ranking/rankings-of-sneakers
If you noticed in both the websites, the author is focusing only one product and giving values to the customer by which the customers are getting engaged with them. Likewise you can be the one with any similar idea or maybe better than that once you identify your Niche. If you can’t afford creating a Website then there are alternative options like Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, etc where you can create your business page at free of cost.
Now I tell you how you can actually start your Affiliate Business with following 2 Simple Methods :
1. START WRITING GENERAL ARTICLES AROUND THE NICHE OR PRODUCT YOU WANT TO PROMOTE. THEN INCLUDE YOUR LINK TO THE PRODUCT AT THE BOTTOM OF THE ARTICLE.
As mentioned earlier, always pick a Niche you are passionate about. In this way you can provide honest reviews about “What You Liked About The Product and What You Did Not”. And if you just go on and on about how great the product is then people will naturally tend to shy away. It will be like you are creating a problem which is not there at all. However, just about every product include few negative things as well.
Once you have written the general review / article, you want to make sure that you stand out from everyone else because many other affiliate marketers also might be reviewing the same products.
Fortunately, this is not so as hard as you are thinking. One of the best strategies is to provide a Bonus for the person who buys a product through your affiliate link.
For Example, If you are selling an Information Product about “How To Run Your Business Through Facebook Ads” then you can add a Bonus on “How To Increase Traffic on your Facebook Page”. Assuming it is not covered in the product you are actually selling.
The Bottom Line is Affiliate Marketing can be much more profitable if done right. The important thing is you provide value and if you do, you can expect to become worthy for promoting other people’s products and earn unlimited money.
