Have you ever wondered how you can get your own business started that uses your ability to write and speak to best advantage? Also, how cool would it be to do it from anywhere in the world with no products to keep or make?
We live in a day and age where this is possible and yet so many do not think that they can.
I am talking about affiliate marketing!
It is such a simple way to get started in business doing what you want when you want. Assuming of course that you enjoy writing and speaking about yourself and assisting others with your insights.
Note, I say it is simple, (as you will see from the steps I give you) but it is not necessarily easy particularly when you are getting it off the ground. However, if you are determined to succeed then there is no reason on this earth that you cannot choose your own path and make it work.
Here are the 4 simple steps to your own successful affiliate marketing business
- Start building your audience
Most people would not start here. They do this by starting with the product. As you are building a business around your life, around you., choose instead to build an audience of people who like you. People who like what you have to say about anything and are therefore more likely to trust you when you recommend something.
Yes, start even before you know what you are promoting. What is the point of having a product you want to promote and no one to promote it to?
You can use a social media platform to begin, if you so not have a website.
- Decide what you want to sell
Get clear on what you will enjoy enough to promote to the people in your world. This may require some research but with the search engines available to you at the moment, this is pretty simple to do. Thin k of things you actually enjoy talking about to friends and go see whether there is a product or service that you believe enough in, to promote as an affiliate.
Do not take a long time getting this done – The audience you are building need to get used to you promoting things as soon as possible after building your audience.
- Build A Website Of Your Own
Now, it is time to start capturing the people who are specifically interested in what you are offering. So, put together a lead magnet – something that will get the right people to put their hands up and join a specific mailing list.
Use a squeeze page for this step which is more than just a website. It is one whose sole purpose is to collect their details.
- Send This Segmented List to The Sales Page of The Product
Give your segmented list a reason to click from your email to the sales page of the product or service that you are promoting and as long as it is a highly converting offer, you can expect the money to come rolling in.
