What is Affiliate Marketing Training

So what is affiliate marketing training? In a nutshell, it is training that teaches you how to find a niche or a target audience and getting yourself in a position with a website and blog to promote products to your audience.

To explain it better though I will go into more detail.  This way you can be fully informed and if it is a path you would like to go down, then you are definitely in the right place.

Affiliate marketing with Wealthy Affiliate is set out in 4 steps

1.) You Learn how to Choose an Interest  

This is often referred to a niche and something you are very passionate about.  If you have a hobby right now that you love to do and you love talking about it.  Well what that means is you can potentially build a website about it and share your passion for it online.  And… make a very profitable business out of it in the process.  

So first up, choose an interest. Make sure it is something you will enjoy talking and writing about. And in the affiliate marketing training, you will be taught how to understand if your hobby or interest is in a buyer’s market.  Most things are these days, but it is important that both passion, and an audience for that passion are met.

2.) Build Your Website

You will learn how to build out a website with information about you, but mostly about the niche and products you will be affiliated with. On your website you will have all the important things added like your privacy policy and commission disclaimers etc.

As you go through the program, you will learn how to find keywords and write posts that are in your niche. But don’t worry.  When doing keyword research for your niche (or passion as we like to refer it to), you will be inspired by many, many ideas.  Just through your keyword research results.  

I have often been looking for a keyword in particular, and ended writing about something completely different within my niche.  Only because there are hundreds and hundreds of keyword variations and ideas.  So no need to worry about what content to write, you will always have lots to blog and talk about!

3.) Learn How to Rank in Search Engines

One thing you will be taught here with the Wealthy Affiliate program is how to rank in the search engines.  And it is brilliant as you see in one of my screenshots I did a little while ago. Here are a few of my keywords that ranked on Page 1 quick, and are still there to this day.

You will be taught how to find keywords that keyword search seo toolpeople are typing in to fulfil their needs online, and with some optimizing on your posts you will have the potential of ranking on Page 1 of Google and other search engines -and be found!

What optimizing means, is putting your keyword in your title, url and in your post. This way Google has an idea of what your content is about and along with a couple of other factors like quality, amount of word in your content and comments/engagement, you can be ranking high!

That is the beauty of blogging and learning to rank.  And why I truly love this type of platform for my online business.  Your content is out there and the chance of being on Page 1 – forever!!!   What that means is free advertising for you!

4.) Earn Money from Your Traffic

So once you have your website set up, which doesn’t take too much time at all mind you, you can start your keyword research.  Doing this you will find appropriate low competition keywords for your blog posts and get creating content.

Bottom line.  The more content you create, the more visitors you get.

And this is when you can start monetizing your site with aligned products to your niche. There are many Affiliate Networks like Clickbank and Amazon and Commission Junction to name a few that you will find thousands upon thousands of products to search through to find the right thing for your niche.

But not only that, there are many online stores and private online businesses that have affiliate programs attached to them. Just Google – your niche + affiliate program, and you will be presented with heaps to choose from.

If you become an authority in your niche, provide content and provide solutions to people’s needs, then you could be pointing your targeted audience (via affiliate links) to products that you can make commissions.  Yes it is a process.  But get this process mastered and moving along, and you could have your self an awesome profitable online business in no time.

Have You Ever Wondered What is Affiliate Marketing and How it Works?

learn what is affiliate marketing

So have you ever wondered what is affiliate marketing and how it works?

Well bottom line, Affiliate marketing is just awesome!  As an affiliate, you have the potential to make a lot of money from products and services that you can promote through Affiliate programs.  And you don’t have to purchase the product yourself.

Basically, your goal as an affiliate is to drive traffic to their website or product sales page, and if someone buys from them, you earn a commission.

To be Successful in Affiliate Marketing you have to do One of Two Things

Send a lot of paid traffic via pay per click campaigns or send email lists to your offers, and if they buy through you link, then you get a commission.

The other way and the one I consider the best, is to have a website that is relevant to the products or services you are promoting.  And a website that gets a lot of traffic (organic traffic, which is free.)  And you can check out here how you can build a website for free!  The important factor is you have a lot of relevant content on your site that helps your visitor and your target audience.

what is affiliate marketing and how it worksBut keep in mind, you cannot just randomly post links and hope people will buy. They are on your site for a reason, they want something, so it has to be highly relevant to what they are wanting.

Relevancy is really key, and the information you provide in a blog post will be a big decider as to whether your visitor (goes through your link) and buys from you or not.

What are Affiliate Programs

Affiliate programs allow you to sell a product or a service of theirs and they offer commissions.  You are given a link that is unique to you, and if somebody clicks on that link, and buys, then you can earn a commission from 1% and up to as much as 75% depending on what is offered to affiliates.

And there are tens of thousands of affiliate programs.  Just type your  *niche* + affiliate program and you will see there are so many.  So for an example, if I had a website in the weight loss niche.  If I typed in weight loss affiliate programs or diet affiliate programs, then Google would return so many programs I could be part of.

Choosing Relevant Affiliate Networks

Most affiliate networks generally have thousands of products that you can become an affiliate of.  And the great thing is, these networks are free to join.

Upon signing up, you will be assigned a unique link within the network and then be able to promote any of their products going forward.  And like I said, you have thousands to choose from.

Here are some of the more known and reputable networks you can become an affiliate for;

Commissions Junction
Amazon.com Associate

Relevancy is Key to Sales

Always make sure that whatever your website is about, the links that you are sharing tie into the topics surrounding your website.  You wouldn’t send your visitor to a pet product if your website was around weight loss would you?  And vice versa.

What is great, if you do find a really good program to be an affiliate for, you can write a lot of content around that product. Or you can write product reviews, as people are always looking for those who have experienced the product first hand, and want to know if what they are about to buy is worth their money.

And in the affiliate networks, like Amazon and Clickbank, you can promote these products without having to purchase them or ship them yourself.  All you have to do is send traffic to the product.  That could be with paid traffic straight to the product sales page, or you could have a blog, and as I said earlier, create relevant content around that particular product and have relevant links for your visitors to click through.

Keep in mind, don’t put too many links on your website.  Make them work naturally with your content.  And Google doesn’t like it either.  They will consider you a “bridge page” where you are just getting people from your site directly to another site and to affiliate products.  And if you are doing that… they just won’t rank you!

With your website, always be coming from the place of helping your visitor through your content, and as I said placing your links where the natural progression would be to go to through your link. You could send them to have a look at a review of the product that is on a post within your site, and from there send them directly to the product sales page.

In Summary

Once you learn how to get traffic, the sky is really the limit because of the amount of affiliate programs and products available to you that you can be a part of.  The only limit is your imagination!

I do hope you have a bit more understanding now of what is affiliate marketing and how it works. I am excited at the possibilities of affiliate marketing and I trust you can see that too!

Make it a profitable day!
