I am a newbie and am looking to get started in affiliate marketing and hopefully make my first affiliate sale by the end of this month. I have noted the following steps to getting my email funnel up and running in order to market my affiliate offers and wanted to get the opinion of some of the veterans on here to see if the following steps make sense. If not, how can I improve on my initial strategy? Thanks, steps below:
1- Pick a niche from Clickbank and find 3-4 products with strong sales that I would personally use
2- Discover a common problems relating to the products that I have chosen and hire someone on iWriter to write 2,000 word articles on how to resolve this issue with the products I've selected e.g."How to lose 7 lbs in 7 days using this product"
3- Purchase my first ever domain and website hosting service
4- Set up a single opt in auto responder account
5- Have someone set up a squeeze page for me to give away the 2,000 word report free
6- After clicking the opt-in link people will be redirected to my affiliate offer
7- I now have an email funnel through which I can market my affiliate links
Everything look good here? If not, anywhere you think I can improve? And also do any of you have advice for a new guy?
