The basics of making money online as an affiliate starts here.
We are going to take you through some of the hurdles you have to get passed in order to start making money online.
[su_spoiler title=”Step 1 – Choose your niche” style=”fancy” icon=”plus-square-1″]You have to choose what your website is going to be about. The genre, the niche, the topic! The more defined and specific the niche, the better.
When choosing a niche you have to consider the following.
- What is my passion?
- What can I see myself writing 100+ articles about without getting bored or distracted?
- What am I knowledgeable about?
Instead of simply making a website about “Sports”, make one about “Golf Clubs” or “Designer Soccer Boots”. Be specific and keep all your articles relevant.[/su_spoiler]
[su_spoiler title=”Step 2 – Build a website” style=”fancy” icon=”plus-square-1″]This step takes time and is never really a “completed job” as your website will always evolve and change. However the initial structure of your website needs to be good.
Luckily for us these days building a website is relatively easy compared to the old days. User-friendly platforms now allow you build complete websites in just a few hours sometimes.
If you are strapped for time them you can always buy a pre-made website but we do recommend building your own from scratch.[/su_spoiler]
[su_spoiler title=”Step 3 – Create Content” style=”fancy” icon=”plus-square-1″]This probably the hardest part of making money online. Creating original and SEO friendly content can be hard sometimes. However with the right tools it is relatively easy now.You will get writers block on occasion but that is the nature of the business.
Content is KING. It is the content of your website which will determine your success. Google ranks high quality content. Simple.
Blog content includes things like;
- Product and service reviews.
- Common questions and queries on any given subject.
- Trending subjects.
- Collection of information on subjects – such as AffiliateDork.[/su_spoiler]
[su_spoiler title=”Step 4 – Build an audeince” style=”fancy” icon=”plus-square-1″]If you follow step 3 then building an audience kinda falls into place naturally.
- Your audience comes when your create good content.
- Good content leads to social sharing.
- Social sharing leads to more traffic.
No one will share and return to your website if it is full of poor quality content right? There are ways to boost your audience building but on a basic beginners level it is best simply to focus on content. Otherwise you simple spend to much time trying to promote your website before you have had time to create content.[/su_spoiler]
[su_spoiler title=”Step 5 – Promoting Products” style=”fancy” icon=”plus-square-1″]Once you have got good content and you are getting regular traffic you can start selling products. This is a simple case of putting adverts and text links inside your reviews/posts, linking them to your affiliate links.
So let’s say you write an article about “Ronaldo’s new designer boot” then you can slide in a few links to a few sport shops websites and earn a commission on any sales which result from people clicking on this link.
There are many ways of advertising products on your blog so let’s move on to the Affiliate University where all these steps are described with video and in GREAT detail. [/su_spoiler]
