7 steps to be a successful affiliate marketer, that’s it!

Yep, that's it!

It only takes 7 steps to be a successful affiliate marketer.

The 7 steps in a nutshell

  1. Choose a niche
  2. Build your website
  3. Write quality content that people want to read
  4. Select the best affiliate products for your niche
  5. Build your tribe of raving fans
  6. Build your email list
  7. Keep writing quality content

Everything else makes your business more complicated than it should be. Really!

Choose a niche

Choose something that is ideally an interest, a passion, a hobby, but it could be something that you would like to learn about. You don’t need to BE an expert; you BECOME an expert.

Your niche will address a need for a product or service.

You need to pick a niche that’s both popular and profitable.

Build your website

Nowadays you don't need to be a code expert to build a website. There are many content management systems out there. My favorite one is WordPress. Within minutes, you have built your website.

Write quality content that people want to read

Your content will educate people so that they know, like, and trust you enough to do business with you.

With that said, you need also to attract the right people with your content.

Select the best affiliate products for your niche

Preferably choose products you use yourself, or at least did some thorough research before recommending it to your audience.

It is without a say that your affiliate products apply to your niche.

Build your tribe of raving fans

While we all want organic traffic from the search engines to our website after we did some SEO work on our content. Those fickle search engines will not always grant our wish, even we gave our best.

Therefor it is important to share our content on different social media platforms like Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest among many others to build a tribe of raving fans.

Build your email list

If you are not using email marketing you are missing out on marketing that is cost effective.

You send out messages automatically after a contact subscribes to your list. You can create several messages to go out in a cycle, one after the other. Yes, email is still the #1 communication channel for marketing.

Your email subscribers are your "warm" prospects and future customers, so make offers to them.

There is a saying "The money is on the list" and still true!

Keep writing quality content

Plan out a content schedule and stick to it.
If you intend to post every day, then stick to it! You will only end up losing visitors if you post every day for a month and then once a fortnight after that. You need to think about your readers, they will come to expect daily posts if that’s what you have been supplying until that point.

How often you should post on your blog. It depends on you, the time that you have and the way you like to work.
