So if you have searched how to start affiliate marketing for beginners, this is going to be one of the best free answerson that question youre going to get.
If you have been wanting to start with affiliate marketing as a beginner youre probably getting bombarded withcrazy offers and wild claims and lots of hype, right?
Then you dont get any real info and are confused on what youre going to do.
Well Im going to do the opposite and make no crazy offers and just show you really what you need todo as an aspiring beginner affiliate. Also show you where to get free training to tie it all together,sound fair?
If you can see through all the B.S. and hype you will find that most courses are just to sound good to the beginnerand sounds like it could work They do say no experience necessary right?
The problem is you need experience to make them work right or to sniff out that its B.S. So these courses arepreying on beginners.
Well these programs are so tempting and some so cheap, you may not be able to help yourself. Then you might getstuck in a vicious cycle of buying hype glitz and glamour.
You go through years of getting burned, wasting time, losing money and then trying the next best thing franticallytrying to recoup the time and money you lost with the last course and end up having the same thing happen to you,yet again.
Good Affiliate Marketing Training For Beginners Starts With Building A Really Good SolidFoundation
You really need a good solid foundation on how things work online. You want to be able to grasp the concept so youcan reduce the scams you fall for in the future. Then you wont fall for the magic software to do everything for youand make 10K an hour on autopilot while you sleep.
Now Its Time To Break Down How To Start With Affiliate Marketing For Beginners.
1. Choose your niche dig deep and find something you can talk about for a few years.
Ok this seems easy enough right? Well you would be shocked at the difference of what you think you can talk aboutand research, versus what you really can execute. This wont be easy at first. So find a niche that you could talkabout for a least a year.
It does require you immersing yourself into the niche and you need to at the very least have some interest in thetopic. This is why I say something you can talk about for a least a year as that is typically something that you have
some interest in or going to have in the future.
2 Find your unique angle
This can come really hard or very easy. Think college and what your major would be.
If you have a niche in Golf you could major in specific supportive golf shoes.
If your niche is kayaking you major in specific competition kayaks or extreme kayaks and all the things that goalong with that.
If your niche is boating your major could be specific types of boats like
Wakeboard ski Boats
Cuddy Cabins Boats
Centre Console Boats
3. Figure out the need your going to serve
So no matter what you need to serve a need, if not you have a hobby not a business. If you dont feel you need toserve a need then you need to say good-bye to making money like a business and say hello to a rather boring sidehobby that eats up a lot of your free time.
So lets say for example you like private planes for some reason. You could look at that niche and think all you antalk about is planes and different kinds of planes. Just talking about planes amd their features wont serve that muchof a need, but showing people how to get the best private plane rentals or how to use Netjet to get the best dealswould serve a need inside the planes niche.
Then you can also once in a while create content about top planes to fly rent, or safest rental services etc. Then alsotalk about new planes coming out etc.
4. Imagine who your target audience is going to be
Then you need to think who your audience is going to be. What groups of people are you writing for and what needstheyre looking to have met.
Not necessarily just demographics like age and sex but more of psychographics of desires and wants and needs.
If you go with say Fishing Boats, your target audience would be something like this
Lets say the persons name is John, you assume John likes the outdoors:
Desires a boat to get him out on the water and be able to get the job done so he can focus on fishing
Wants possibly a little upgraded model of fishing boat that has more bells and whistles to help him have an 3/7
Wants possibly a little upgraded model of fishing boat that has more bells and whistles to help him have anadvantage and make fishing more enjoyable and catch more.
Takes fishing seriously and wants to be able to catch lots of fish with the least annoyance and hassle, so theycan get out on the water and actually fish more and for longer.
Probably has a job that is around 50k+ to have disposable income to buy a fishing boat.
Focused on special fishing tools to increase the fish caught each trip.
Then when talking to this person you would focus on what matters the most to them like
Catching more fish, & catching them faster
Why you would want to buy a customize boat over an old fashioned dingy type fishing boat, enabling him toget way more fish at a time.
Best trailers to carry your boat
The best gadgets to make fishing more enjoyable as well as fruitful.
5. Figure where your target audience is at right now & where they want to be
Find out where your target audience is now and where they want to be with your help.
So using fishing boats and John as an example you could put together that maybe John or the attractive characterthat you build/imagine might be starting out with a junky boat that does not do the job well and makes fishing muchless enjoyable.
Then your job is to introduce John into your way of thinking about certain fishing boats and the quality and the timesavings only a good fishing boat can offer.
6. What passion, interest and or competitive advantage do you have in the niche you choose.
So again just to use fishing boats you would then think to yourself
Do you even like fishing?
Do you actually fish with a boat?
Do you have tricks, tips or anything from years of fishing with your dad when you were young?
Have you seen the benefits from fishing in a real fishing boat, over a cheap basic boat or dingy?
Are you already shopping for fishing boats? Then you could really give in depth specs on which one tochoose. This then comes from the enthusiast stand point or from a person already doing lots of researchbecause theyre considering buying a boat for themselves.
Have you already bought a few fishing boats? Then you may know the downfalls of certain boats you onlyfind out after putting it to the test for a few years?
Any of the things above plus some passion or at the least some interest, you would be able to serve a need forpeople like John. I made up John above as the person to use as a model for your specific audience. Then whenyou talk, write or make videos you talk mainly to this type of person as those will become you avid readers, superfans or buyers.
7. What traffic source, advertise or SEO?
What do you plan on using as your main promotion platform. Example Blog, you tube, podcast, social media,webinars etc. Which ones do you like the most and make that the main traffic source.
I could go into each traffic source with a full-page and still not cover everything. So this article will be way too long if Ido that, so what I will say in this is you should find a channel that you understand the best, and go with that first.
You can make any traffic source work with the right strategy. If you like Pinterest use pictures on Pinterest topromote you business. If you like Facebook use Facebook as you will be able understand how to market to peoplemuch faster. If you have already used it as a customer, viewer or consumer and viewed it through your potentialaudiences eyes you will have an advantage when it comes time to promote on that specific platform.
8. Research different affiliate programs for products and services inside your chosen niche.
So now you need to look for any affiliate programs that you can use to promote necessary items to help your specificaudience like John get from where he is now, to where he wants to be.
Provide suggestions for affiliate program that you believe in that help John carry out what ever task that you feelneeds to be addressed to help them get to the desired place or position they want to be in.
You just need to search in Google for good affiliate programs, here are some ideas for suggestions:

9. Get a host and domain
This can get tricky as there is so many cheap hosting plans out there. Many people go with cheap hosting andeverybody typically starts with cheap shared hosting.
This is a problem for not only load time (that helps ranking) but also shared hosting is very unsecure and if one badapple messes it up, theres a high chance something can happen to your site as well.
This can actually be one of the hardest more intimidating parts of starting an online affiliate business, as a beginner.The good news is once you find the way that works for you its incredibly easy. Figuring out the right thing you wantto do is the hard part.

11. Start immersing yourself in the best blogs in your niche
get influence and then use that for ideas and topics but find your own voice and the more yourself you are the better.Also weirdly enough, the more controversial you are the better.
12. Start writing crappy content to at least start
You just start with whatever you can, dont procrastinate get something written down. Then you will start producingmediocre content that gets the job done and then finally start slowly finding your voice and writing with entertainmentor edgy or humorous spin.
I say start writing crappy content not to say you should produce garbage, but many hesitate to write and never startwriting. You will never just get a perfect article from the first draft. So what you have to do first is just write withhelpful content in mind. Always keep your audience in mind and where theyre now and where they need to be.
13. Produce entertaining content around the niche & keywords To solve a problem
You can produce content from a
Beginner on a journey
