Affiliate Marketing – Making Your First $ 500 With Almost No Cost
In this short guide, I'm going to show you the step by step action plan to make your first $ 500 with affiliate marketing. It's not hard, if you do it right. The only expense is $ 20 for an autoresponder, you can use a free web host. Let's get started, shall we?
1. The Basic: Picking Something To Promote
What are you passionate about? Poker? Hiking? Gardening? Whatever it is, you want to promote people's product for a commission. All you do is simply type in Google "__________ affiliate program", the blank space being whatever you're interested in promoting.
Right now I want you to focus only 1 product. You want to see it make a sale first before promoting more products (for fun and profit)
2. Set Up A Website And Recommend A Product!
You can use 50webs or blogger as a free web host (I'm not affiliated with them. I only recommend because I used them in the past)
Nowadays setting up a website is not hard, because you basically point and click. No programming required.
You do not need to sell the product, recommend it. Tell your visitors the benefits, then add your affiliate link for a commission (sneaky huh?)
3. Add Email Followups And Build A List!
Say you're promoting a product to cure acne. You want to create an email list where the reader get free acne prevention tips, then you would recommend them the acne product for commission. (See how fun it is?)
I do not recommend you get a free autoresponder, but rather a web based, 3rd party autoresponder to save you the head ache. Add some emails to your autoresponder recommending the product. Now sit back, and wait for the commission money to come in.
