Get Started with Affiliate Marketing

Get Started with Affiliate Marketing

Affiliate marketing is where most online entrepreneurs get their start.

And for good reason.

The products already exist, you don't have to keep any stock, place orders or deal with customers.

That's all taken care of by the vendor that you're affiliated with.

So what do you have to do?

For starters, you need either a website or an influential social media presence in the niche that the vendor is operating in.

Your website or social media account has to build trust with your visitors so that they are comfortable with your recommendations and ultimately buying through your link.

And, of course, you must have an affiliate agreement with the vendor, who then provides you with an affiliate link to their site.

Finally, you need the technical skills to create pages and blog posts on your site that draw in potential customers and include the affiliate links for them to click on and purchase product.

Phil is a septuagenarian who has now funded his retirement through internet marketing.

"It's both enjoyable and lucrative," says Phil. "and can literally be run from anywhere in the world with an Internet connection. Like many others out there, I initially poured money into the bright, shiny pebbles. The one off, brilliant opportunities that promised an overnight income with the push of a button. The only thing they did, besides suck up funds like a vacuum cleaner, money that I couldn't afford, was take up so much time that I ended up depressed as well as poorer. It wasn't until I learned how to build a genuine business (I now have 22 of them) in both affiliate marketing and e-commerce, using the platform and tools that I tell you about on this website, that I turned it all around. I now make a substantial and sustainable retirement income and I want to teach you how to do the same."
