Step by step affiliate marketing guide 

I'm going to keep things very simple because I want you to get the big picture and I want you to understand how things work. There are basically five steps involved in affiliate marketing.

But this five steps can be broken down into sixteen steps, or 30 steps if I were to go in depth. 

I believe that if you understand the big picture you will be able to complete the puzzle very easily.

Step 1: choose a niche 

This is the very first step and the most important too. You have to choose the type of products you'll be selling.

This is because you won't be selling products in different categories, although we can do that. It would be easier and more profitable to stick to a single niche.

So would you be selling medical products or cameras, or web hosts. Your niche will determine the type of people you will attract.

For instance, if you are selling cameras and mics, you might attract youtubers and so.

So pick a niche and move to step two....

Step 2: find related products 

This is also very crucial and important. If you are selling to librarians, it would be a bad idea to promote cameras to them, right? Instead, you should be looking for good books to sell.

If you pick a niche and you pick the right products to promote to that category of people, you will make a lot of sales.

So do well to find good products related to your niche.

Step 3: build an audience 

If you do step 1 and two properly and you miss step 3, no one will see your  products, not to talk less of buying them.

How do you build an audience? - you might ask. 

You can do so by building your email list, your YouTube subscribers and your blog readership. 

There are many different strategies involved. So you should start by building your e-mail list. Highly recommended

But most people just build an email list and no one responds to them, that's why you should use this email strategies to get the best out of your email list.

Step 4: promote the products 

This is where you start promoting the products to your audience that you have built either on your blog, YouTube channel, social media or your email list. 

Remember that people hate to be sold to, so make sure you tell them how the product you are promoting will benefit them personally. 

Don't just tell them to buy buy buy.

Step 5: enjoy your earnings

I think this is pretty much obvious.

I'm sure that if you follow all the steps listed above, you'll get to step 5.

Just in case you don't know what to do with your earnings. You can send some my way.
