How To Do Affiliate Marketing (For Absolute Beginners)

Have you ever wondered what affiliate marketing was?  Can it be done completely free, or does it cost something to get started?  Do you want to know how to get started with affiliate marketing?  Would you like to know how to do it effectively and successfully as an absolute beginner?  If you’re asking some (or all) of these questions, my goal is to answer all of them for you!

Affiliate marketing is basically promoting and selling someone else’s products/services, or a company/affiliate network’s products/services and receiving a commission from each sale.  Once you’ve been doing affiliate marketing for a while and have obtained the necessary experience and skills along with more resources, you can sell your own products/services! 

Is it free, or are there costs involved?  The answer is both…  You can start completely free, although I don’t recommend this approach, but it’s possible.  Here’s an example of how you can start completely free, you can open an account with an affiliate network such as Clickbank and post articles on high-authority websites pertaining to the product/service you’re promoting and include your affiliate links – simple, right?  There is so much more to affiliate marketing than that, but because this is an article for absolute beginners, I will keep it very simple!  I will now outline my recommended approach on how to get started with affiliate marketing which involves some costs – but it won’t be too expensive to start.

  1. Sign up with a reputable company of your choice, I recommend Legendary Marketer.
  2. Get website hosting and a domain name
  3. Get access to sales funnel/landing page software – FREE 14-Day trial here.
  4. Get access to a great autoresponder here.
  5. Set up a free YouTube Channel (optional)
  6. Start driving free traffic to your offers
  7. Start driving paid traffic to your offers – great traffic source here.
  8. Start making commissions!

Affiliate marketing is one of the top successful online businesses and it can be very lucrative if it’s done correctly.  It does require some work, dedication, focus, determination and skills if you want to be very successful at it.  My number one piece of advice when starting an affiliate marketing online business is very simple – DON’T QUIT!  You must never give up on yourself because that will be taking the easy way out – if you want to be successful, you need to take constant action and force yourself to keep doing what’s necessary for your online business to be successful.  You must also partner with a great company that focuses on affiliate marketing training, coaching, consulting, events & masterminds if you really are serious about starting an affiliate marketing online business!
