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.
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.
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.
