More on Affiliate Marketing

What is it again?

Affiliate marketing is where you promote a product on your site, and you keep a small percentage of the sale money. It may sound easy, but many people fail at making a decent amount of money with this approach. Here are some things to think about if you want to do well with this.

If At First You Don't Succeed ...

If one program doesn't work for you, try another. Not all programs are the same. They offer different products, services, and payment percentages. Mix and match until you find a program that fits your needs.

Model Yourself on The Best

Study and borrow ideas from other affiliate marketers in your niche. Visit your competitors' websites, subscribe to their newsletters and visit their blogs. Look at how they manage to get sales. Try using the same techniques as them and see if your sales increase.

Domain Name

Get your OWN domain name. While this may seem obvious, the novice may not know what affiliate advertising entails. You should try to get a domain name that fits your product perfectly. Keyword research is useful here.


Affiliate marketing entails many tasks, some hard and some easy. You should always tackle the hardest and longest tasks first if you want to be productive. By doing this, you will be able to coast through the easier tasks, ending your workday on a good, strong note. Plus, handling the tougher tasks first allows you to get more of them done per day.


Affiliate marketing takes some work to attract potential customers but the rewards are well worth it when done correctly.

Cool to know. I think dealing with the task and researching are the risky things which are the two things I cant really focus due to simple reason that I got bored.
