How To Build A Simple Affiliate Website To Make Money-5 Easy Steps

Build a simple affiliate website to make money-Easy Steps

Thanks for checking out our post today in which we are going to show you how you can create your own simple affiliate website using 5 easy steps.

We are going to walk you through each step to make it easy for you to understand the process involved.

Affiliate Marketing is a proven method of making money online, and we recommend the best way to benefit most from it is by creating your own online presence in the form of a simple affiliate website.

We don’t want to create any false hope for you by saying it is really easy to make money as an affiliate marketer. You can make money quickly, and some affiliates do, but for the majority of people who start an affiliate business they need to demonstrate passion and commitment, along with the ability to put in a sustained effort over a period of time.

However, by recognising what steps you need to follow before you make any money, then your preparations are way more likely to pay off.

Being prepared from the outset gives you the confidence to fulfil your role as a successful affiliate.

Things like knowing what is right for your audience, and using a voice that is engaging for your readers are important learnings curves. Affiliate marketing is by no means rocket science, however there are definitely some very important things you need to know before you start.

Below are five steps that will help you set up your own online affiliate marketing business from home and guide you on your way to your maximum earning potential.

1. Find a Good Training Program


This is fundamental if you want to succeed. Getting started with the right training program for your needs,  and offers you support throughout your training is vital. THIS IS ONE WE STRONGLY RECOMMEND  An appropriate training program will ensure you have others in support to guide you along the way, and offer video and instructional material on setting up your business from the outset.

A good affiliate training program will show you how to build your business from the ground up by marketing your business to bring in those important sales.

With a step by step instructional course, you’ll learn to master the skills of affiliate marketing by following in the footsteps of affiliate marketers who know what works in the online marketing world.

2. Choose a Niche


Choosing a niche for an affiliate marketing business differs somewhat from choosing a niche as a blogger. As an affiliate marketer, you need to make money with every piece of content you write, so you need to look for a high paying niche in the genre that interest you and pays out a high percentage of the sales.

Although you can market any niche if you have the skills, a few niches are more difficult than others. The best place to start in finding your niche is to research the highest paying niches in your field.

If your passion is computers, then you start there. Hone it in a little more by being specific in your direction for your niche. Computers is a generic term for a lot of diverse programmes and services you could talk about, within this niche you could have digital services, graphic design, web building etc.

You need to reduce it down to the one area you intend to focus all your efforts on, once you’ve reached this stage, you have your niche.


3. Start a Simple Affiliate Website


Having your own website is an important part of running your affiliate business.

Without a website, it can be very challenging using for example social media to promote your business. Unless you have a massive social media following that are extremely engaged with all your content, it can be very difficult to drive sales.

It’s much easier to start a simple website on a platform that has self-build websites that use drag and drop to add everything you need to make your website look professional.

You can start with a free website to get yourself comfortable with the basics of running a site, although paying for a domain name will be your best investment if you spend any money on your start-up business.

The domain name isn’t expensive and you can connect it to any website although many involve charging a small fee for hosting your website. You can consider hosting your site when you progress further with your business.


4. Write Quality Content


It may seem obvious that you need to write quality content, but it is more important than ever to write articles that provide real value to your readers. The search engines these days are way more clever than what they used to be, and they know the difference between poor and good quality content.

If you want to improve your business and have your content noticed, you will need to create longform articles of at least 1,000 words which include keywords and SEO to get your content found on Google. Write your content with your affiliate partners in mind, but likewise, don’t sway your content to include as many links as you can.

It takes up a great amount of time to write excellent content so if you can’t find the time to write it yourself and run your business, outsourcing can be a good (albeit more expensive) way to give yourself more time to earn money on your website.

For example, if you spend at least three days researching, planning and writing one article per week you can claim the time back and focus that extra time on running your business and promoting your website.


5. Promote Your Website


Once you’ve invested your time in learning how to run an online business, choosing your niche, creating a website and writing great content (or outsourcing to a freelancer) you can also promote the content on your website to attract more readers.

Using your marketing skills you’ve picked up in your training.  You can promote your work everywhere you have a social following. You can even use the content you’ve written to create various forms of your content like making a short video or adding your greatest content into an ebook that leads back to your website.

Whichever way you promote yourself, it must always lead the reader back to your website. The more visitors you get to your site, the more chance they’ll click on your affiliate links and make you money.

Now you have the steps to start your new affiliate website to make money.

Take all the encouragement and training you require to build yourself an online business that will continue to create you money as you sleep. Why not fulfil your dreams of being your own affiliate marketing business owner and get started today.

  1. I found your article full of so much information but presented in a calm and orderly manner.  So many sites are so full of stuff that getting to the reason you clicked on the article has been forgotten.  I often leave when there is so much that I can not remember why I clicked there.  Having the information there, but assembled to be shared as the article was read is a much more calming way to present information.  There is so much information, and we all are curious, but it seems to be easier to understand when so much is jumping for our attention.  I do agree that building your own website is an easy and exciting thing to get to do.  Thank you for your guide.
