How to start Affiliate Marketing in an effective way?

So if you are planning to start Affiliate Marketing in 2017 then you might be confused where to start. Surely you might have done a bit of research on it and know what it is all about. But you are confused because you might have come across a lot of theories by the gurus out there. They will show you that they are making six or seven figure income each month by following just simple steps or working only one or two hours each day. And you will be attracted to buy their courses. Some of them will make you come quick bucks. But are you also going to make the same amount of money they do? Surely Not!
All the Affiliate Marketing gurus out there have huge email lists and can make 200$ or 1000$ in an hour or so just by sending an email through their autoresponders to their clients. And they have done a lot of hard work and spend years to build those lists which are making them millions of dollars.
Don’t get discouraged by this. Because you can also be like them if you work hard and take this seriously as they have done and turn this into a full-time income. If you want you can hire a mentor because that will help you but that is not necessary because if you know the basic outline of Affiliate Marketing you can learn it by yourself from Google or YouTube.
So, how to start and which path to follow so that you can become successful in Affiliate Marketing?
After hours of research, you might have come across various models of affiliate marketing like- “Affiliate Marketing without a website”, “Affiliate Marketing by Blogging”, “Affiliate Marketing by Building email lists”, “Affiliate Marketing by SEO” etc. but you are confused which one will work for you.
The most common path or model which a beginner can follow is-
1) Choosing a product
2) Doing keyword research on that topic
3) Building your site
4) SEO
5) Getting traffic through Facebook Ads, Google Adwords, Solo Ads etc.
6) Earning Money
Well, that is the basic or the most common outline that most of the beginners follow. And this works very well and many people are earning by using this method. But this is not a method which can generate a long term income. Because you don’t own the customers.
If you go to a shopkeeper, who gives you good quality products, then you are more likely to buy from him again. This little theory is the difference between making 100$ a month and 10000$ a month.
The ‘common method’ which you will follow does not have any way that can retain your customers because you are not getting a chance to interact with them. They come to your site or click on your link and go to the vendor’s site, buy the product and you get your commissions. The vendor captures the email of the buyers and makes recurring profits by sending other related products to them or the additional products. But you only get paid once.
So, what can you do?
Try to choose a specific niche and make a list of various best-selling products in that niche. And then build your site on that niche and offer something like an eBook or a guide for free for which they will enter their email. That’s it. For example, if you have a site which is offering an eBook related to “How to lose weight?” then the person who puts their email to get the eBook will definitely be interested in purchasing a product based on the niche. You will need an autoresponder for this. If you don’t know what that is you, go checkout on Google. Try to build different campaigns and sites for different niches.
So, those are some little tricks or advice which will help you get started and prevent you from making mistakes which most beginners do. If you have any other suggestion please comment below.

This topic is very apt for me because I am trying to learn affiliate marketing. I have read in so many discussions that affiliate marketing can earn you more than what I am earning for my main line of forum content provider. Perhaps if I can have my own site and focus on affiliate marketing then I can make it as my livelihood someday. That is the reason why I am taking down notes on important things that I come across in discussions on this site. This is a good place for such information.

Affiliate marketing is not always easy at the beginning especially when we are looking at how we are going to be able to compete with those that are already successful in that kind of business. However, one thing that we should not forget is that there is no limit to what we can achieve as long as we are ready to put the necessary work that is involved.
