Affiliate Marketing...3 Fool Proof Steps

A very quick way to get started making money on the
internet is with affiliate marketing.

Affiliate marketing is simply advertising products
that you do not own and get a percentage of each
sale you refer.

Getting started is very simple.

Step #1 - Pick a product. Since you don't need your
own product, you'll have to have access to as many
different topics or products as you can.

The best place to find products to promote is by visiting

Sign up as an affiliate. It's free.

Then visit the ClickBank Market Place where you'll
find hundreds of information products on a variety
of subjects.

Pick a topic and product that gets you excited.

Visit the sales page or website for your choice and
sign up as an affiliate.

The affiliate signup link can normally be found near
the bottom of the product website.

Sometimes you'll find the signup link at the top right
hand site.

The link usually says "affiliates" or "make money".

The very best websites and affiliate progams will have
pre-written ads, keywords, banners, etc.

Ideally you'll want to find a product that pays out
at least 50% or more on each sale.

Step #2 - Now that you've got a product, you'll want
to start getting the word out to as many people as
possible, and this is how you'll make money with
affiliate marketing.

You can setup an account with google adwords over at

What you'll do is write up a tiny, powerful ad that
google will show in the paid search section. Ideally,
your chosen product will have these ads already pre-
written for you.

You then compile a list of highly targeted keywords
on your product topic.

Keywords are nothing more than search terms your
potential customer will use to find information on
the subject or your product.

Having laser targeted keywords is crucial to making money
with affiliate marketing using this method.

Your ad should be short, powerful, and create desire.

You're bids should be kept as low as possible as to not
lose alot of money while trying to make a profit.

Also remember to keep your daily ad budget set low when
you're first starting out.

This way you can test your ads, keywords, product, etc.

Once you find a product that will produce at least a one
percent sales rate(1 for every 100 targeted visitors)
you can then raise your bids, find new keywords, write and
test new ads, etc.

To really make money with google adwords, you'll want
to consistently repeat this process for other products
you find.

Keep adding to your product portfolio and watch your
profits soar!

Step #3 - Start a blog. You can start a simple blog
and do reviews of the products you chose.

You can start a blog for free at

People love reviews. Good or bad you can still make
sales with affiliate marketing as long as you're not
giving reviews that are dishonest.

You can research for other reviews on your product
topic, or look for articles to post to your blog.

Then include your affiliate link to send your blog readers
to the sales site of the product(s).

If they buy, you make money.

The above 3 steps will help you start making some sales
with your affiliate marketing.
