Regardless, if you are just getting started, or you are a veteran Affiliate Marketer, here are some affiliate marketing strategies for beginners that really work.
#1) Define your passion or interest. Get real clear on the industry that you are going to serve.
#2) Start building an audience around this industry that you are interested in and are passionate about. If no one else is interested, it’s probably not a good Industry to be in.
#3) If your topic of interest is attracting some attention, and you are getting some interest and engagement, start seeking out products and services that are in that industry.
#4) Don’t blatantly push your products and services in the face of these people. Be very subtle about the Industry and Community you are serving. Just create valuable and interesting information and very subtlety mention the products or services.
#5) Make sure the niche you are working is not saturated and overpopulated. If it is, consider defining a more specific niche.
As an example, if your interest is fishing, consider focusing on flyfishing. Or possibly get more specific as fly fishing for trout. The more defined you get, the less crowded the space will be.
My interest has been marketing for a very long time. So one of the products that I promote is a software called MailBoxPower and it uses the United States Postal Service to send out postcards, greeting cards and personalized gifts.
This marketing software has some very powerful features. This is why I call it my Magic Marketing Tool and use it often.
