Step by Step Affiliate Marketing for Beginners
How to Make Money Blogging as an Affiliate Marketer takes Skills and Tools and in this post, I will be sharing the “How to” Step by Step Affiliate Marketing for Beginners.
This Guide is designed for beginners to give you the knowledge you need so you can begin your Online journey.
Deciding Your Niche
When choosing a Niche for your business, it is important to consider the market trends, the importance of the niche as far as people are concerned as you want to build a business of interest to a lot of people.
For example, if you were to choose the Health and Wellness Niche, my advice would be to make this a smaller niche and maybe choose something like- weight loss for women over 40 or Vegan Recipes or Fitness for people over 50. There are thousands of niches for this niche.
Here is another example – Instead of having a niche for babies, how about a niche for Best Baby strollers for off-road or Baby gear for toddlers or newborn baby gear.
As you can see by slimming down the large niche you will be more focused on a target audience and this is what you want in order to get sales and become an authority in your chosen niche.
People have asked me if it is important to know about the niche you choose and my answer is no because you can learn all you need to learn from researching online and offline in your local stores.
Also, you can go to Amazon and check out reviews of products and then write about the 5 star rated products on your blog,
Here is another example of a niche and check out the results on this subject
142 Million results for CBD products on the Internet
And one more for you to see to get an idea
Over 15 million results for this niche and the list of niches is amazing and companies wanting great Affiliate marketers is growing exponentially and I will show this further on in this post.

Learning the best way to Blog
Within Wealthy Affiliate, there are 2 Training Programs to attend and the 1st one is called the Online Entrepreneur Certification Program or the OEC as well refer to it.
This will teach you everything you need to build a truly solid foundation for your business, it will teach you about how to use Keywords as a Research tool and another bonus is Jaaxy the best keyword research tool is also built into the platform and is free for Premium Members at WA.
Learning how to use Keywords when writing blogs is a vital component to success online especially when you want to get indexed quickly and ranked in Google Bing and Yahoo as this is what attracts visitors. If you are on the 1st page of these search engines, this is where the majority of people search so chances of you getting hit are very high and this is exactly what you want as you build your Affiliate Marketing Business.
How to monetize your Blog
Once you have a solid foundation for your Affiliate Marketing Site, you will then apply to different companies relating to your niche and become an Affiliate for these companies. You can also apply to Google Adsense to have ads automatically added by Google to your site and you make money from this service through Google.
With over 4 billion people surfing the Internet looking to buy, sell, make, build, create the time is now to get involved with Affiliate Marketing, and applying to companies is easy and will cost you nothing except a little time.
Here is an example of results for a niche
Again check out the results in the screenshots above and if you want to see what is available to you for your niche just type into Google
Affiliate program for ….. and add you niche 🙂
How it works is simple.
You write blogs on many different products in your Niche, then you apply to Companies to become an Affiliate for these Companies and when you are accepted, you get banners and links you can use to place on your website.
When visitors come to your site looking for something, then click on the links in your post and are taken directly to the company’s website and if they shop there, you receive a commission from sharing the link on your site and that’s it.
No handling inventory, no chatting with customers- All you do is simply help out by sharing banners and links on your site and if you write excellent reviews with great keywords, you will be on the 1st page of Google and this is where the money is.
Visitors and How to Attract Them
If you write a 400-word blog you are not likely to obtain a huge following. However, if you put some effort into what you write, choose excellent keywords for the title, and truly give your readers some honest and engaging content, they will keep coming back. This will build trust with them by what you write. They will know whether you care or not and can pick this up within the 1st few seconds of being on your site.
The more you give, the better and if you are honest and caring and have some excellent articles for people to read, you will become extremely successful online as an Affiliate Marketer.
