Hello everyone, and welcome to my attempt at helping those of you

out there that would like to become an affiliate marketer. If your not

sure what a affiliate marketer is, well you have come to the right post.

Lets Break it down. According to Wikipedia Affiliate marketing is a

marketing practice in which a business rewards one or more affiliates

for each visitor or customer brought about by the affiliate‘s own

marketing efforts. Examples include rewards sites, where users are

rewarded with cash or gifts, for the completion of an offer, and the

referral of others to the site. The industry has four core players: the

merchant (also known as ‘retailer’ or ‘brand’), the network the

publisher (also known as ‘the affiliate‘), and the customer. The market

has grown in complexity to warrant a secondary tier of players,

including affiliate management agencies, super-affiliates and

specialized third parties vendors.

Affiliate marketing overlaps with other Internet marketing methods to

some degree, because affiliates often use regular advertising methods.

Those methods include organic search engine optimization, paid search

engine marketing, e-mail marketing, and in some sense display

advertising. On the other hand, affiliates sometimes use less orthodox

techniques, such as publishing reviews of products or services offered

by a partner.

Affiliate marketing—using one website to drive traffic to another—is a

form of online marketing, which is frequently overlooked by

advertisers. While search engines, e-mail, and website syndication

capture much of the attention of online retailers, affiliate marketing

carries a much lower profile. Still, affiliates continue to play a

significant role in e-retailers’ marketing strategies. So Now we know

what a Affiliate is.

I am going to assume that whoever is reading this has no idea on how

to become an affiliate or how to Internet Market.

Before we go any further lets me make one thing very clear, if you are

new to affiliate marketing or any form of internet money making it is

not easy when you first starting out, I don’t care who tells you it is. Its

not. When you looking online for the answer to “How do you make

money on the internet” your going to come across a lot of folks saying

that it is easy. Those folks are only saying its easy because they want

you to think they have all the answers so you will purchase there product.

What do you have to do to succeed? First you have to have the right

frame of mind. You have to know what areas your week in. Do not try

to learn everything at once. learn one thing at a time. for example if

you don’t know How to build a website sit down in front of your PC

don’t answer any emails or your phone until you have figured out how

to build a website, with todays software its pretty easy. In other

words, you are going to have to learn some new skills in order to be

successful on the internet at making money, it doesn’t matter if you

want to be an affiliate or market your own products from you own

website, By the way being an affiliate is a good way to learn how to

market your own products form your website.

The very first thing you need to do, is to find your market but not just

your market, a “ Niche Market”. What is a Niche Market? its basically

a market within a market. lets look at them.

There are three main markets out there on and off the internet, They

are Health, Wealth, Life Style. In each one of those markets exist

several more markets (niche markets) lets look at those.

Health: Diet, weight loss, vitamins, supplements, medical , stop

smoking, alternative therapies, head ach relief, keep fit.

Wealth: work from home, forex, business opportunity, internet

marketing, public domain, for closed homes, repos. stay at home moms.

Life Style: mind and body, personal development, pets, baby boomers,

self improvement, online study courses, computers, alternative

energy, home care, going green. I am sure that you could still find

more markets inside each of those, but for now this will work fine.

So take a look at those niche markets up above and pick a few that you

may like. Do you work out? You could pick one from health that your

familiar with, mabe you take supplements and know a few things

about them, that could be your niche market.That’s a quick look at

finding your niche market.

Lets start with the basics to become an affiliate. To become a affiliate is

really easy. All you have to do is go to these sites, Clickbank and CJ,

there are a lot out there. I picked these two because they are the

biggest and have been around for a long time, those two reasons, to

me seem like safe reasons to use these guys, Clickbank and CJ,( I

don’t make any money when you click on either one.) Like I said there

are a lot more out there but between the two there are plenty of

products to choose from. After you sign up for Clickbank , go to

market place at the top of the page, click on it and you will be taken to

a page that is full of vendors waiting for People to become affiliates for

them, get there link and make sure you save it on your PC somewhere

where you can find it. I put it in my notepad and place it on my

desktop. Do the same with CJ.
Thats how you become an affiliate. Next, all you need to do is market

you affiliate link.
