How to Start Affiliate Marketing: Cutting Through the Clutter

Everyone thinks making money online is easy – after all, the news is full of stories of mommies who blog for millions while raising six children, and 12-year-old whiz kids who somehow manage to create a game more viral than anything Nintendo could come up with, right?  Well, if you’ve ever tried it you know how hard it really is!  Courses that purport to be aimed at newbies often contain so much information that you’d need to hire a team of experts just to interpret each step.

So if you’ve taken the first step and figured out that there are companies like Amazon, for example, that offer you a commission every time a sale is made from your website, you are probably wondering how to start affiliate marketing.

In the simplest of terms, start by taking a manageable bite of the apple!  You didn’t learn how to spell the first time you saw the alphabet – why would affiliate marketing be any different?

Pick one product and one strategy to promote it, and then stick with that technique until you’re successful.  And hint: successful means that you practiced it and practiced it until you got it right, not that you tried it once.  Be so tough on yourself as to set a sale as the measure of success.

Too often would-be affiliate marketers get caught up in the clutter of online money-making techniques, jumping from one strategy to another, reading everything they can, and then suffering from ‘analysis paralysis’.  In trying to do everything, they end up doing nothing at all.

The only sure-fire way to success isn’t to keep searching for the right guru, the right set of tools, or the right on-sale-for-just-3-hours-longer offer: it’s to execute on one strategy.

At AffiliateArticleWriters.com, we have one strategy that we teach you: writing high-quality content.  When founder Dan Ho was left at home with twin babies and desperately wondering how to start affiliate marketing, he took a product he was passionate about and he started to research, and to write.  He tried lots of styles, lots of sites to publish on, lots of keywords, and he eventually developed  a world-class system that he eventually started to teach other new marketers so that they too would know how to start affiliate marketing – how to start it, how to refine it, and how to sustain it.

Everyone has something they like to do – some people like to design sites, some people like to measure and test search engine ads.  But those who like to write, who are genuinely curious, and who are willing to put time and effort into researching their topic, becoming an expert, and sharing their knowledge, are sure to find success at AffiliateArticleWriters.com.  If that describes you, join now!
