No doubt, AFFILIATE MARKETING rocks! There might be many tutorials and guides that say Affiliate Marketing is the easiest way to MAKE MONEY ONLINE. But no body tells you how to set up affiliate marketing in easy manner. This article helps you to set up affiliate internet marketing with step-by-step instructions.
Most of the internet marketing gurus claim that they don’t use website but I strongly recommend affiliate marketing with your own website. This creates a sense of authority in the mind of the visitors. Ok, so to promote an affiliate offer or product with a website, it’s very similar to promoting an affiliate offer or product without a website only there are a few more moving parts that we need to look after. Here are the steps that you need to follow:
Step 1: Choose Your Niche to Promote:
Select the best niche that has little or no competition. It is always recommended to do a minimum research before entering into any business.
Step 2: Buy a Domain Name:
You need to select a domain name otherwise known as URL. Make sure that the domain name is keyword rich. Say for example, if your website deals with “used cars” then get a domain that consists of used cars in it. I would recommend GoDaddy as the best domain registrar.
Step 3: Open a Hosting Account:
As you are just entering into online business, there is no need of dedicated servers. At the same time, don’t be of the impression that you can go with some cheap or free web hosting. There are many AFFORDABLE WEB HOSTING companies such as BlueHost, HostGator etc that are purely reliable and charge you less than $6 a month.
Step 4: Open an Autoresponder:
You need to develop a good report with your customers and subscribers, so open an autoresponder account at Aweber.
Step 5: Problem Free Images:
If you want images for your website, then go with stock photos. Do remember that you need to get problem free images otherwise you might get struck later over copyright issues.
Step 6: Create Website:
Create a website with good layout. If you don’t have programming skills then you can outsource website creation. Here I would like to say something about web blogs. Blogs are the latest sensation. You can install a wordpress blog with a simple mouse click.
Step 7: Direct Website to Affiliate Offer of Your Choice:
Create good content related to your affiliate product. Visitors are always interested in good information. So, create content using “How To”, tips, pros and cons, etc. Provide value to your website. Do SEARCH ENGINE OPTIMIZATION SEO. The visitor will definitely get converted if you provide him correct and relevant information.
