4 Basic Components of Affiliate Marketing

Affiliate offers

In order to make money, you will need to sell something, you need to have a variety of products that you can recommend to your prospects.

Most people make this mistake, they start a business on a niche where there are one or two products to promote and when those products they disappear on the marketplace and their business disappear.

Choose a niche that has a lot of products to promote.

A home on the web

Most gurus they will tell you that you don’t need a website to make money, I can agree with that to a certain extent, you can make money without a website or blog but you cant build an online business without one.

It does not matter if you use youtube, facebook, twitter etc to promote affiliate offers, you need to have a domain name and a hosting so that you can have somewhere to send your prospects so that they can join your list and get more stuff from you.

Authority content

In order to attract prospects to your business you need to create great content, you need to give them some kind of value, a content that can help them to solve their problem and make them feel better and they will reward you by buying products through your affiliate link.

A communication system

Your communication with online customers comes in the form of an automated system that leaves you with a primarily hands-off business to run.

That automated system is called an Autoresponder.

Autoresponders are the method of choice for most marketers because you can queue up over a years’ worth of emails to go out on autopilot and do the work for you.

Those are 4 are the basic components of affiliate marketing, those 4 components above are all it’s going to take to build a financially secure

affiliate empire. Now how you use these four components is where the

difference between success and failure lies.
