You can earn an ethical and satisfying income from affiliate marketing. But is it for beginners? In this article, I am going to show you how to get started.
It's a bit like learning to walk.
Really, really difficult at first. You have some stumbles and falls. But you pick yourself up, learn from your mistakes and try again.
But then suddenly everything falls into place and you never look back.
But it sure helps to have someone there, guiding and encouraging you every step of the way. In the case of walking, it's someone to show you how to do it, to hold your hand as you take your first stumbling steps and to help you back on to your feet when you stumble and fall. And to help you keep that goal firmly in mind.
Anyone who has ever raised a child knows how important each of those factors is.
It's the same with affiliate marketing for beginners.
Your success as an affiliate marketer depends on many factors.
Having a fast, attractive website is one. Posting great content is another. You need to understand keyword research so that your great content is seen by the people who will benefit from it when they enter a search term into Google, Bing or Yahoo. And you need backlinks from other sites operating in the same or similar niches.
But all of that is aimed at just two things. One, getting traffic to your website and two, making it very attractive for your visitors to click on your links.
But what happens when a visitor clicks on one of your links?
