      I personally love clickbank (only been with them around a month or so). They mainly deal with digtial products such as ebooks, software, etc. There are many other affiliate programs if you do a quick google search, for example, commission junction and the amazon affiliate network as mentioned above

        Welcome to the game!

        Affiliate Marketing is a great place to start your online business if you are new to the Industry.

        Step 1 - Pick a niche.

        Step 2- The number 1 thing I would recommend is to start building a list with a squeeze page.

        Step 3 - Start a review blog etc..

        Once you start making some sales and getting paid, building list etc.. start scaling up!

        A few great websites to start with are Clickbank, Amazon Associates, Shareasale, CJ.com

        Hope this helps.

          In addition to that, i would suggest you get a mentor and follow him.
          Be careful when you chose your mentor, search real one rather than scam artist.

          Thanks

      Clickbank is one of the trusted affiliate company on the internet. with them you get instant affiliate account approval and you can earn up to 75% commission on each sales. I make money with them too and have never encouter any problem with them.

      Here are what you need to do:

      1. Pick a niche: a niche you are passionate about. any niche on health and relationship will sell good.

      2. You have a website already and hosting [perfect] you can make a product review site with it. but your site domain must relate to the product you are promoting.

      Or you can make a review videos

      3.Then start promoting. Lot has been shared here on how to drive traffic [both free & paid methods] Sending the traffic to an opt in page is also very important. you can use aweber for this. It's just $1 for the first one month.

      Inclusion, clickbank affiliate marketing works perfect if you can really do it rightly.

      Hope this help.

      That, my friend is up to you to decide. What are you good at? What can you teach people about a particular subject which would be useful to them? Once you have answered this question, you will be on the right track

    Hi BIBI15 , I would always recommend clickbank to a begginer. There is no need to get "accepted" and good for virtually any niche and traffic method.

      First pick a topic you are comfortable writing about and know a lot about because you will be doing a lot to promote it, then find a product to sell. Finding a product to sell is the easy part.

    Find a niche that you have interest in and would like to work on. Then find a product within your niche. Besides Clickbank, there are lots of other affiliate networks that offer great products for you to promote. You can find some at offervault.com.

    I would always recommend to not just doing affiliate marketing but building a list of subscribers and affiliate marketing. Decide in which market you wanna be in and start a blog or review site for it. Also like I already said, build your list from day one. If you have a list than you have the closest thing to traffic on demand. Of course you have to build a relationship and trust with your list but if you have done so you can market to them offer and offer.

    1-Pick a niche/industry you're interested in and know some thing about.
    2-Create a free product to give away. Write a short book or make an entertaining & educational video telling everything you know which people in your niche/industry want to know.
    3-Find a dozen or so other things online (articles, videos, etc.) which contains even more info people in your niche want to know.
    4-Create a squeeze page to capture an e-mail address. If you know nothing, you can get started for free with a decent squeeze page at 90secondsqueezepage.com.
    5-Create a series of e-mails to send to subscribers, starting with your free gift (book/video/etc) then following up with other things that they will enjoy (from step 3 above).
    6-After having built a small list, given value to that list, and established a bit of a relationship with that list, recommend an awesome product which you know they will love and for which you are an affiliate.

      Once you create a squeeze page. Do you make that page one of your website? Where would you add the squeeze page?

      Do you make that squeeze page, on your money site where sails should start?? or you make another site which you call (squeeze page) for gathering people in order to than drive traffic on your main money site??????

        "90secondsqueezepages" is a very bad place to make a squeeze page, Bibi. It looks unprofessional to display that kind of url on your squeezepage, and there are some "strings and catches" there, as well. (You need to think about how these "free services" are actually monetized. It's true that their users don't pay for using them, but that's because they tend to be monetized in other ways which can detract from their users' businesses.)

        Be clear, since you're asking about affiliate marketing, that sales are made (almost entirely by email) by virtue of the trust-based relationship you build with your subscribers.

        I know that you're not necessarily going to be using ClickBank, and I'm mentioning this only as one specific example, to illustrate a fundamental truth about affiliate marketing in general, but this post will help you: http://www.warriorforum.com/main-int...ml#post7110523

    Here are some of my favorite affiliate companies where you can find an awesome product to promote :-)

    JVZoo
    WarriorPlus
    ClickBank

    JVZoo and WarriorPlus sell lower price point products, and ClickBank usually has higher ticket stuff.

    In the offline world if someone you did not know was to walk up to you and try to sell you a product, no matter how great the product was chances are very slim that you would make a purchase. In the online world it's no different and it's more important to build a relationship because the possible customer it's not face to face with you. Clickbank is a great place to find products to promote but you have to look at yourself as the product. Start building relationships with a list of your own, providing value first, helping people, and then the sales will come.
