If you have ever wondered how you can make a full time income from affiliate marketing and even make a good income to boot, listen up: you need training. Not just any training, but the right training.
You can't just promote your affiliate links, you need your own website or newsletter. Preferably both. And you need to have your own newsletter and build your own list. In short, you need to treat it as a business, because that is what it is.
The hardest part of being an affiliate and owning your own website is getting traffic to it. If you don't have traffic to your website you may as well give up now, before you have even started. Right up there with the best traffic generation methods is search engine optimisation. This is why having your own website is important. The company you sell for has affiliates as part of their marketing plan. What is your marketing plan?
So you need to learn how to work WordPress, about search engine optimisation, other traffic generation methods, email marketing, article writing and other aspects of internet marketing. You need to learn about testing your marketing to see if it converts, and you need to learn about split testing.
And if you're asking if it is really necessary to learn all this, the answer is a resounding "YES!" Not only will it help you make sales, but it will determine the quality of your sales success. It will give you valuable skills, and it will grow your online paycheque.
Where are you going to learn all this? There are many online courses that cost from a one off $27 payment to a monthly fee of $67. Which one to get would be the problem.
When you look for an affiliate course, you should look for a course that gives you a system. Systems are excellent, because once you learn it, you can't go wrong, and you can apply it to almost everything.
Here is the checklist of what you need:
