An Affiliate Website-How You Can Get Started Today

How To Get Started In Affiliate Marketing

In today’s article I will be showing you how you can start your very own affiliate marketing business with an affiliate website.

Affiliate marketing is one of the easiest businesses to get started in. You can set up your business quickly, and do it with very little cost. And the great thing is….It works!


Affiliate marketing has been around for as long as the internet has. During that time a lot of people have benefited from it by generating a real online income.

The fact that you are reading this article offers some proof that the concept does work.

That’s because you found this very article because you are interested in starting a new career as an affiliate marketer with your own affiliate website. So I have now done my job as an affiliate by ensuring that you were able to find the article, and subsequently read it.

I could do that as I learned how to get this article to your attention by ensuring it became visible to you in the search engines.

With some training and one on one support you can do exactly the same ON THIS TRAINING PROGRAM

To use another example. You could have been someone who was searching for ‘the 10 best sandwich toasters on the market’. Anyone who does a search like this is ready to buy a good quality sandwich toaster.

And if they land on a website owned by you, then chances are they are going to make a purchase via your website if you have written an article about 10 good quality sandwich toasters.

By learning how to get people to visit your website via searches they make on search engines, you can attract hundreds, or even thousands of people who want to buy specific products or services.

You don’t even have to ship any products, or deal with any customers, you just let your visitors click on a link on your website. Then you get a commission when they buy a sandwich toaster, or anything else you write about.

As I stated earlier, getting started with your own affiliate website is extremely easy. You can either get started right away by finding out more HERE and be walked through the steps below, with easy to follow and over your shoulder video tutorials.

Or you can go it alone, following the same steps below.

Create An AffiliateWebsite

You don’t have to have a website to get started in affiliate marketing. However I highly recommend that you do have one.

By having your own online presence, or branding, in the form of a website, you will build a reputation for recommending the best products on the market, and people will over time stay loyal to you because of your growing authority in the niche.

For example, you are more likely to check out the training program I have recommended above simply because there is a lot of content on this website about making money online, therefore I have obviously invested a lot of time in this niche, and know what I’m talking about. You are more likely to use this link than you would a link on a forum from someone

There are many website hosting companies, but if you want to get the whole package…A free website that is super simple to set up, free training in affiliate marketing, a community of people (myself included) ready to help you succeed, then please do check out THIS TOP RATED PLATFORM

Choose A Niche

One of the great appeals of affiliate marketing is that you can build your business around what you are passionate about. Whether it’s flying drones, or playing chess, where there’s an interest, there is a niche.

Affiliate marketing is all about connecting with people who have the same interests as you, and getting them to visit your website. Your website will of course be based around the same subject.

It’s important to chose the right niche for you. as the niche is something you will need to stick to for a prolonged period of time. That’s why I recommend you choose something that you are passionate, or at the very least, interested in.

You may need help with finding a niche. GET HELP FINDING YOUR NICHE

Get Targeted Visitors To Your Website

This is the step that is the most difficult. You need to get people who are interested in what you are promoting, visiting your website.

I had no experience or knowledge before I started at Wealthy Affiliate, yet I managed to get you to this page simply by applying what I had learned there.

The process is all about keywords and how to use them. In this article I have targeted specific keywords  so I could help someone like you get into affiliate marketing. If I can do this, so can you. It just takes a willingness to learn something (which isn’t exactly rocket science), and to put it into practice whilst getting the support you need. (directly from me if you wish).

Make Money With Affiliate Links

An affiliate link is simply a link on your (affiliate) website that takes a visitor to your site to a website selling the products or services you are promoting.

Many company websites that sell products online have what is called affiliate programs. All you do is visit their website and join. A lot of these programs will simply give you a link automatically, whereas others require certain conditions met.

An affiliate program that most people are familiar with for example is Amazon.

So as you can see, it isn’t difficult getting into affiliate marketing, but you are going to need some help to make it work. You can learn things from the internet, there are plenty of YouTube videos and articles, however many have very conflicting advice, which can leave you very confused about the way forward.

The program I am recommending above is designed by experts, and is followed by many affiliates who have gone on to create very successful affiliate marketing careers.

Whichever path you choose to take, I wish you all the best with your journey into the world of affiliate marketing.

  4. Thank you for posting this article about how to get started with affiliate marketing. I agree, that setting up an affiliate marketing business is fairly easy, but I do recommend to join an affiliate marketing program with a strong community. As with everything you first start off with, it is easy in the beginning: within a few days your website is up and running and your first articles are online – super exciting. However, everyone is bound to hit a wall eventually or be stuck with a problem they cannot solve and this is where the power of the community and good training comes into play. I have been part of Wealthy Affiliate for a while and I will recommend it to anyone: the training is delivered in easy bite-size chunks and the community offers answers to any questions you might have along the way. Joining as a starter member is an absolute no-brainer in my opinion: you get your first website basically for free and are part of a great community before even investing a penny. It really is great and I would recommend it to anyone.

      Great to hear that you have been able to build your career as an affiliate marketer with Wealthy Affiliate. Thanks for reading and for your comment.

  6. Thank you for the great advice. I believe the step that took me the longest was deciding my niche. I knew I want to teach people about self-improvement, relationship and dating, but I was reluctant as the niche is highly competitive.

    Thanks for the great tips.

    Kind regards,

    1. Hi Yoana,

      Yes deciding on a niche is an important first step. Most niches are all to a certain extent competitive, however I think you have made a wise decision choosing a subject that you are passionate about teaching.

      Best wishes to you and your online business.
