Affiliate marketing is a process in which you’ll promote others product and when you sold any of them you’ll earn 10% to 70% (depending on the affiliate program) commission of the sale made by you.

There are hundreds maybe thousands of affiliate marketing programs on the net but the best affiliate marketing networks is Clickbank and Amazon, so I would suggest you to go for these two best programs to make money with Affiliate marketing.

You need to learn affiliate marketing first in order to make a good amount of money online from home.

First you need to do a lot of hard work like building niche websites for your product, doing SEO (Search engine optimization), getting quality backlinks, and promoting your website etc. But ones you got the secret of affiliate marketing than you will earning a passive income easily.

Here I’m going to share some quick affiliate marketing tips which can help you start your business online.

Affiliate Marketing Guide To Promote Products:

1. Promote products to your website or blog:

One of the quickest and easiest way to make money from affiliate marketing is to promote affiliate products to your website or blog. You can use banners, text link ads and reviews to promote the product to your website and if you have good targeted traffic to your website than you’ll make good sale. Remember only promote those affiliate products to your website which is related to your website niche.

2. Promote products to article marketing websites:

You can still make money from affiliate marketing if you don’t have any website or blog. You can promote affiliate products on article marketing websites like EzineArticle and GoArticle. It is very easy to promote on article marketing websites. You just need write a good review of the product which you’re promoting and give link of product at the end of your article.

3. Promote high quality products only:

I would suggest you to do some research before you promote any product because a lot of internet marketers are spamming to promote low quality products. Do search on Google with title of the product which you’re going to promote.

4. Buy a product before promoting:

You can’t review a product that you never used and why would you review a product that you never used. When you search on Google about any product than you’ll get a lot of reviews but none of them used that product that means all of them are lying.

5. Promote products with Facebook ads:

There are thousands of affiliate marketers who promotes affiliate products with Facebook ads and getting good sale. Facebook ads is also a easy way to promote affiliate products, So why not try it too?

6. Build subscribers list:

Building an email subscribers list is fundamental for any online business owner. Build a massive list of subscribers and promote products to them and start making good money from affiliate marketing. The best affiliate marketing guide which any successful entrepreneur can give you is that you should build an email list from starting.

      Hello Marcie,

      If you want to sell your own product as an affiliate product than you should become a Clickbank Vendor. You can achieve higher revenues by Clickbank Vendor and If you don’t know what the Vendor is than go to Clickbank.com you will know it.

      There are a lot of other ways to make your product appealing to affiliate, you just need to Google it! I will soon write a post on this topic too.

      Anyway Thank you very much for stopping by.

    Well that was a great post Ehsan. Thanks for sharing that with us and little do people know that they are involved in affiliate marketing every single day.

    What makes people buy? Word of mouth right! So if you find something you enjoy using or think is great you recommend that to your friends and they usually will buy because you said it was good. So with affiliate marketing, you get to make a commission from sharing that with your friends.

    You’ve given us a number of ways to get that information out there to the masses. Of course doing it in a way that will help others learn about the benefits of what you’re offering instead of just blatantly promoting.

    Great introduction though so thanks for putting this together.

    Enjoy your week Ehsan.

      Hello Adrienne,

      You know that there are a lot of newbies on affiliate marketing that is why I have mixed up the introduction of affiliate marketing and some quick tips on affiliate marketing on a single post for them to know the affiliate marketing better and start to make money easily.

      We can’t recommend or review anything with word of mouth if we haven’t used it, so we have to buy the product first and than review the product for others with out affiliate links. It also makes it easy for us to review the product if we have used it in our life.

      A couple of weeks ago I have purchased an Energy Take Classic system and than I have reviewed the product here. http://guideandnews.com/2012/04/21/energy-take-classic-5-1-home-theater-system-full-review/

      Anyway thank you very much Adrienne for stopping bye.

    Ehsah you give some good methods, I would love to try Amazon again but for reason people in Arkansas do not qualify anymore. I tried Clickbank but i did not like their process. I just recently applied to Shareasale, they seem like a good program for me.

    • June 11, 2012 at 8:09 am #

      Hi Micheal, I also love Amazon more than other affiliate programs because it has a lot of good features. Clickbank is the second affiliate program for me. Thanks for stopping by Michael. Keep visiting for more.

    Hi Ehsan, — interesting perspectives on affiliate marketing.

    You mentioned clickbank and Amazon – if you could only choose one, which would it be?

    • June 11, 2012 at 8:07 am #

      Good question David. If I could choose only one than I will surely go for Amazon because I have good knowlwdge about Amazon associates and have earned from Amazon associates more than Clickbank, however for now I’m working on both of them!
      Thanks anyway.
