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.
