Many people would like to start their own home based affiliate business, but don't really know how to get started. Get it right and you can look forward to regular commission in your bank account, get it wrong and it will end up costing you money.
So how do you get it right?
I would set up a free blog from one of the big players, write a few reviews of products I am interested in and recommend the best deals, with links to affiliate partners. Each product review would be around 200 words long and include a few pictures of the product. I would then join some forums related to this niche and start to get my name known as an expert. This will take a little while, but would be very worth the time and effort.
I would also email friends and recommend products they might be interested in. It's amazing how quickly word will spread if you offer good honest information.
The key to success with this is – keep your costs to a minimum and give the best information you possibly can for the products you are promoting. People will soon start to see you as a trusted expert and start buying your affiliate products.
To get traffic to your site, why not comment on other blogs and post a link back to your site, join facebook and other similar sites to spread the word. You could even write a press release.
The possibilities are endless with this and we have only just touched on the subject today.
When I get more time, I might start and grow an affiliate blog from scratch and see where it takes me. Please let me know your thoughts on this, I would also love to hear from you if you have put this plan into action. If you think a home based affiliate business is not for you, why not take a look at some other ideas.
