Things You Need To Start Affiliate Marketing Career & Make Money
Well, the very basic things what I can tell here is that one should have a website to make money from Affiliate marketing. Off-course you can make money via affiliate marketing even without a website. But I am not experienced with that case, so I can’t tell anything on that here.
So, here are few steps to create a website for affiliate marketing
Choose a domain name. You can either start a coupon website or a blogging blog where you will target various product reviews and sponsored reviews.
Choose an Affiliate ready Theme: I am using MTS or MyThemeShop theme due to the ease to manage. You can also look for Genesis Framework with a better genesis child theme to launch your first website. In case want to start a coupon blog, then get Clipper theme with FLATTER child theme.
How To Plan For Content to Make money with Affiliate Marketing?
It will totally depend upon what kind of blog you have started. I will consider there are 2 types of website can be created to make money from affiliate sales.
Coupon Website: You can join affiliate networks like Cuelinks, Vcommission, OMG publishers for India. E.g. I am trying to build a coupon blog for India, couponmax.in.
In case you want to make money from traffic like USA or UK, then Viglink, Skimlinks are best network to join. Simply find out the merchant names and start sharing their coupons in your website.
Product Review website: It can be either a pure product review site or a blogging blog like Shoutmeloud.com or this website. Start writing various affiliate products by joining networks like Shareasale, Avangate, Bluesnap, CJ etc. Put your affiliate links properly. So far I have found Shareasale is one of the best affiliate network and I have made some dollar by Studiopress affiliate programs.
Is it enough to make $100 via Affiliate marketing?
Frankly speaking, NO. Now you have to start building traffic for your website. You can share about your blog or product review in social media and work gradually on various on-page SEO or Off-page SEO factors to get organic traffic gradually. The more organic traffic you get the more chance of a sell from an product.
The best thing about affiliate marketing is, one can make good money from a less traffic blog also if the traffic & blog niche is targeted. When to make money from adsense, you need huge organic traffic. Now, it’s you turn to share is your blog is able to make at least $100 per month from affiliate marketing?
