How To Start Affiliate Marketing For Beginners

A lot of people are unsure of how to start an affiliate marketing business for themselves. But it's not as hard as you think.

Many people think that you need to have a $10,000 worth of product or a website with millions of visitors before you have success with affiliate marketing. However, this is not the case at all.

There is an easy way to start affiliate marketing without spending too much money. The secret to my mythology is as simple as publishing on a consistent basis, whether is once a day, once a week or twice a month.

We're going to show you how to start affiliate marketing with a blog.

What Is Affiliate Marketing?

Affiliate Marketing is a type of performance based marketing in which a business rewards one or more affiliates for each visitor or customer brought by the affiliate's own marketing efforts.

In return, the affiliate has to advertise the business and its products to potential customers, and should that lead to an order, they will be paid commission.

An affiliate link is a type of online advertisement that allows the poster or content creator to receive a commission for any sales made. They are typically posted with hopes for the reader to click on them and buy something else in the process.

These links are usually created by bloggers or companies that want to promote an external product they believe in and get a cut from any sales made on it.

Affiliate advertising is a form of revenue sharing which is one of the most popular ways to make money on the internet. Websites can use this method as a way to monetize their site while providing valuable information to readers.

Affiliate networks provide content creators with a platform where they can display their products in exchange for a commission on every sale. This is the perfect opportunity for people like you who want to promote things you use or believe in.

1. Sign Up On An Affiliate Network

Affiliate networks provide an opportunity for people who are passionate about a subject to make some money while being able to share their interests with others like myself when it comes to chatbots.

An affiliate network is a company that connects affiliates – people who promote and sell products online – with brands. It gives the affiliates a platform and tools that help them promote brands’ products in exchange for commissions.

Many affiliate networks offer opportunities to create your own website, blog, social profiles and content for increased customer engagement like this website builder.

The process of signing up for an affiliate network usually starts by filling out an application or providing some basic information on the website.

You are then taken to a page where you will have to provide your bank details or set up an account with one of the agreed payment processors.

This method right here will give you a better understanding on how to approach the people you want to sell to.

By equipping yourself with how they think, why are people wanting to buy ‘this’ and how this ‘thing’ is going to impact their life, gives you a huge advantage over anyone else doing “copy paste affiliate marketing”.

This is what is known as creating your "customer avatar".

4.- Batch-Out Content Over The Weekend.

Choose a weekend this month and clear up your schedule for those next two days.

If you're a blogger do four to six blog posts, if you're a youtuber do six to ten 15min videos, if you spend more time one Instagram go to and create attractive looking posts that makes your IG people engage, you get the point

..,it’s up to you how often you want to post on your preferred social media platform.

For myself, I post a blog every 2 weeks and soon every week. When it comes to Youtube, 1 a week is good but 2 a week is radical. When it comes to IG, post at least 1 thing daily and same with Facebook and Pinterest as well.

5. Start Publishing

Focus on one social media platform, double down and master it.

Disregard all other platforms till you start making a sustainable income above 10k/month. Become so good at it that people are asking for your advice on how to become a better social media specialist.

After this, you can branch out to start tapping into other distribution channels to start earning from other platforms.

6.- Track Your Results

Most affiliate networks when you sign up, they provide you with a page inside a platform software where you can see all your affiliate links, click through rates, conversions, payment settings, sales affiliates, profile set-up, etc.

Here you’ll be able to see what webpages, Youtube videos, blogs, etc.., your affiliate links are getting clicked on.

Like if you have a Youtube video that is getting a high CTR (click through rate) on your affiliate link, create another similar video to it because you already know that your previous one was trending.

Kill two birds with one stone, get more views and get more sales through your affiliate link.

7.- Turn Interested Visitors Into Buyers

The first step is to make it easy for your visitors to find what they're looking for. They need information like price, pictures, reviews, and so on - and all in a single place. This will greatly reduce the time it takes them to make their decision.

The next step is to offer an incentive on top of what they are going to get. This could be like providing a training video about the product or service, a copy and paste template, discount code, etc.

The last step would be to follow up with them with a few emails to remind them about your unique offer you created specifically for them once they purchase the product or service through your affiliate link. Once they do, give them what you promise.


Overall, If you want to start making money from home with the power of the internet, follow these few steps above to see small wins and within time you will start seeing larger wins.

The key is to be consistent and not give up when time gets hard, because affiliate marketing is all about creating evergreen systems that can bring you home the sale.

Of course, you can also do paid advertisement but more about that in the next few blog posts.
