Affiliate Marketing is one of the easiest ways to make money online. And it is pretty simple how it works. As an affiliate marketer you are simply matching people with products. Or I like to look at it as giving them the answer to a question they are searching for on the internet.
The problem is the keyword. And the product they find is the solution.
So someone does a search for “How to file bankruptcy online without an attorney“. This is the keyword. Then they find a blog post by someone who was able to file their own bankruptcy after reading an e book The blog owner happens to be an affiliate marketer of the e book and earns money when the customer buys the book.
So affiliate marketing is basically pretty simple.
If you want to make money with affiliate marketing then you need to do 7 simple things.
- Decide on a niche market. (Figure out what problem you want to helps solve).
