Affiliate Marketing rewards people for the role they play in shopping journeys of other internet dwellers. There are tons of networks that allow you do that. You go on those networks, explore offers and commissions they are likely to pay, opt for any desired/available offer, use the given link & spread it everywhere, be it blogs or emails, now whenever someone will visit that affiliate link and buy the product, you will be rewarded with a generous commission. This is a short and simple explanation of how Affiliate Marketing works.

Affiliate Marketing is pretty simple and easy to do if you start in the right way. So, based on the experience of an entire community, this post is here to help beginners to kickstart their journey and monetize their internet outreach.

1) Start with what you are best at.​

You might have inspirations in the Affiliate Marketing domain who are making millions with the help of Affiliate Marketing. Observe them closely, they are not trying to sell every product under the sun. Rather, one of the best way to fail in Affiliate Marketing is selling every product under the sun. You are suppose to figure out products in the beginning you can easily sell. If you have a blog, make sure that the kind products you have chosen to sell through your blog compliments the niche of your product.

You can easily find tons of products within your niche on affiliate networks, once you have established the core products, begin producing more content that is relevant to these products. Include your affiliate links in your content strategically and win the trust of the readers with honest interpretation of those products.

2) Write Trustable Content​

If you can win someone's trust, you can make them do anything. Use this social tactic in your content. Write in such a way that people trust your words. Add value to people's lives with your content and they will go gaga on what you suggest. Write in a simple way, know your audience, use the language they can easily understand. Keep an eye on engagement statistics, monitor the content that is getting more engagement, produce more of it in even better ways.

Essentially, your content's value needs to include two elements. It should educate people about something as well as should guide on how that "something" is going to add value into their lives.

3) Distribute the Content Everywhere​

Once you have selected the affiliate products and written content about it to make the sales happen, now is the time to distribute the content everywhere. If you know a few things about SEO already, it is an additional advantage, if you don't know, don't worry I will share SEO tips for beginners in another article soon.

Other than SEO, you can publish your content as a blog article. If you don't have web hosting and domain, no worries, you can go with free options in the beginning, such as Medium, Blogger etc. Once you have a blog ready, now is the time to spread that link on your social media, email contacts, whatsapp groups etc. This is how it works in the beginning. Obviously you can scale in future using Google Ads, Facebook Ads etc, but in the beginning it is okay to use the said networks.

4) Become Data-Driven​

Once you have started driving sales in the beginning, you need to monitor the data that will further help you drive more sales. Collect data using affiliate networks' built-in dashboards or other sales-tracking platform. Get to know about the demographics related to those sales. Spend more time serving that demographic which is converting well. A Data-driven approach can easily increase your chances of making more sales.
