How Do I Get Started With Affiliate Marketing?

If you head over to Yahoo Answers many of the experts will recommend that you start promoting Amazon products or if you don't want to do that to try Clickbank. I would only suggest this if you were an experienced affiliate marketer and you knew exactly what you were doing. It has being suggested that Amazon is a good place to get started with affiliate marketing, but you really need to start with the basics.

What are the basics?

To get started with affiliate marketing, you need to know what affiliate marketing is and how you earn your money.

The way affiliate marketing work is, you write about a topic and recommend a product and include a link to the product's website, and if the buyer buys then you earn a percentage of the product's price as a commission. There are many ways to promote products, but this is one of the most practical ways.

Do I need a website?

As a newbie I don't think it is the best idea spending money on a domain name, hosting, and web design, as your ideas relating to these topics will change, and depending on the hosting package you have will not be worth pursuing.

If someone has advised you to get a domain name, hosting, and web design, and you have a firm decision to follow a business idea, read my posts on getting a domain name, selecting hosting, and how to save money on web design.

For everyone else, it is best to start learning how to get started with affiliate marketing with a free blog provider like, or Google's Blogger. is preferable as the design is clean, drag and drop, and anyone can learn within days. You don't get a domain name with, you get a subdomain. e.g Hosting is free, and website design is free too.

You will still get the same amount of visiter whether you have a subdomain or domain, and this means you can invest your money in more important things like affiliate marketing training.

Can I get started with affiliate marketing without a website or a blog?

There are a number of platforms available to new affiliate marketers who want to try their hand at affiliate marketing without investing time in setting up a blog or website.

It's possible but you will need some training in this area as it is beyond the scope of this blog post to explain the best route. The training I recommend is Ewen Chia's Copy Paste Income.

When Can I start making money?

Before you can start making money you need to join an affiliate marketing program. There are many affiliate programs on the internet but the best option is to start with a program for beginners.

The best way to approach affiliate marketing is to pick a product that you have throughorly used and know or the tips and tricks relating to this product. This could be a dog collar, or a book or any product you like. It's best not to choose an electronic or fashion item as these products are updated frequently, and your review will become outdated. It is also best to choose evergreen products, meaning that they can be used at all times of the year no matter what season. is a good choice to choose for an affiliate program to join as they have a huge product offering, and most products you choose will sell there. There are many good books on becoming an Amazon affiliate written by successful Amazon affiliates. Being an Amazon affiliate is different from shopping at Amazon, as there are a few tricks to been successful.

The commission that Amazon pays its affiliates is low compared to other programs (4%), but this is a learning experience and you can make the big money as you become more experienced. One of the advantages of being an Amazon affiliate is that if your customer clicks through using your link and buys $2000 worth of product, you earn 4% of the $2000.

Recommended Steps

What you need to do before you do anything else is to get some internet marketing training from a super affiliate. The two programs that I would recommend depending on which route you choose to take. If you have decided to get started with affiliate marketing without a website, I would recommend Ewen Chia's Copy Paste Money. To enrol in a more comprehensive course that covers a range of options is Mark Ling's Affilorama.
