Are you ready to start working for yourself? I can show you how starting an affiliate marketing website can be fun and lucrative at the same time! It's not as difficult as it might seem. You do need to be focused, determined, willing to work without immediate results, and have plenty of patience. If you can do all that and not give up then an affiliate marketing website and business can be successful.
Many people fail in affiliate marketing because they don't give their website enough time to grow. If you give your business the time it needs to mature and grow, then you will become successful. You have to work at it day in and day out.
I have the tools you need all in one place that will help you get an affiliate marketing business started and thriving. I will even help you along the way “coaching you” if you will. With my help, the tools that you will gain access to, and your determination you will have an affiliate marketing business you can be proud of.
It Starts With a Niche
The very first thing you will want to decide on with an affiliate marketing website is a niche. A niche is a segment of a market. You want to base your online business on something you are passionate about. The more passionate you are about the products or services that you will be writing about the better chance that passion will shine through in your business. Being passionate about your business will also help you keep working on it during the times you want to throw in the towel so to speak.
Examples of a niche are:
- Dog Toys
- Cat Toys
- Model Airplanes
- Smart Products
- Phone Accessories
- Car Seats
- Fishing Tackle
- Playpens for Babies
- Pet Wear
- Making Money Online
- Affiliate Marketing Programs
- Children's Party Supplies
The list would go on and on, but you get the picture. You can even breakdown the niches I listed above into even more focused niches. In whatever niche you choose to base your business on you want to have the mindset of helping others find the best products or services that best answers their concerns, needs, and wishes.
If you spend enough time in a niche, you will become an expert. Your target audience will see that and when that happens your business will take off. It does take time so don't expect overnight riches or get rich quick. That is all nonsense and rarely ever happens.
Brand Name & Domain Name
The next step in starting an affiliate marketing website is coming up with a brand and domain name for your online business. You want to pick a brand name that is related as close as you can to your niche. Also, you want to tie the brand name in with a domain name for your website.
As a hypothetical example, let's say that you picked a niche about child car seats. You could name your website Child Car Seats R' US and the domain name could be “www.ChildCarSeatsR'US.com” or “www.childcarseats.com” or “www.childcarseatexperts.com” something of that nature. The possibilities are endless.
Your brand and domain name is essential. Your brand is how your potential customers will recognize you and what you do. You will want to do some research on your business name before you put it in stone. Researching ensures that you pick a business name that is not already taken.
Creating a Website With WordPress
Once you have a niche, brand name and domain name picked out it's time to build your online presence. Creating a website is not hard at all. WordPress is the best platform to use to build an affiliate marketing business on. All you have to do is pick a theme you want to use for your website. There are thousands of free WordPress themes and thousands of paid themes that you can choose from.
When you have your theme all set up on your website, then all you have to do is configure your WordPress site such as deleting the dummy content that comes with every theme and getting your plugins activated and ready to go. All of this is explained in depth at an affiliate marketing community called Wealthy Affiliate.

Content & Keywords Are King
Content and keywords will be the next focus of your website business. This will also be your main ongoing focus as you move forward. The keywords of the content you write about are vital because it is the keywords that get your content ranked in the search engines. The aim is to get your content ranked #1 in the Google search results so that your content will be seen by your target audience and potentially make sales for your business.
You will be doing a lot of keyword research when you have an affiliate marketing business. The keywords that you use will be related to the content you write which will be connected to the people you write that content for. The target audience that you write for is searching for terms that they type into the search engines and the business that can provide the closest relevant content to those keywords will win the prize of having their content ranked well in the search results.
At Wealthy Affiliate, you will have access to the best SEO keyword research tool around. The tool I'm talking about is called Jaaxy, and it was designed by the owners of Wealthy Affiliate Kyle and Carson. Jaaxy is the primary tool at my disposal for doing all of my keyword research. It's easy to use, and you can do so much more than just keyword research with it. You can spy on your competition, find affiliate programs to promote in your online business, do alphabet soup keyword research and more. Give Jaaxy a try in the search bar below.
The content you write needs to be engaging with your audience, so you want to write in the first person and make it conversational. You need to look at it like you are talking to another person one on one because you are. There is a real live person on the other side reading your content.
You will also want to keep your paragraphs brief about 3 to 4 sentences long. Your headlines need to be bold and captivating. Use H tags in your headlines. You also will want images in your content that is relevant to the topic that you are writing about. Splitting up your content with compelling headlines is essential to make your content is easier and fun to read.
The Best WordPress Website Hosting
Excellent website hosting will go along way in keeping your WordPress website up and running. You will also want to have a host that has the fastest website speeds possible, and that is site secured. Having a secure and fast website is one of the many things that help you in the ranking of your content in Google, Bing, and Yahoo.
It's also essential to your customers because in today's fast-paced world with so many things to look at online people will not wait for a slow website. If your site is too slow, they will click away without even blinking an eye. And with all the viruses on the internet these days you people want to go to a website that they can trust.
