Wouldn’t it be a relief if there was a step by step plan in affiliate marketing for beginners that explained each part of the process in clear and easy to understand terms? Here it is!
There are a thousands of sites and blogs telling you how you can make money online. Many of them explain some of the steps but few give you all the information you need in one place.
In this earlier post I explained one of the options available. I described its founder and how it came to be created. It’s a course that continues to be developed and updated.
In this post I’m going to elaborate on those options and introduce you to the tools available. I’ve used all of these myself so I can give you an honest description based on personal experience.
This is the main site that contains all the other tools and training materials. You can register as a member for free and explore its contents. Free membership includes an affiliate marketing quick start guide, a downloadable road-map to success, and 120 video lessons in affiliate marketing.
This is the step plan for those wanting to learn and apply this business model. As the name suggests it’s a methodical map that leads you all the way through the jungle. It’s ideal for those who have tried and failed and others who have never attempted affiliate marketing before. Have a look for yourself and read the full description.
This is for those who want to skip the basic work and head for the more advanced side of affiliate marketing. All the groundwork is done for you leaving you free to concentrate of fine tuning and marketing. Check out the full description here.
If a long description don’t convince you then you can attend several webinars that describe the product and the process in more detail:
So you have one or more completed websites. You’re happy with the design and content but you have no idea how well they are performing. Without this vital information you have no idea what works and what should be changed or discarded altogether.
This is an upgraded membership for those who keen to delve deeper into affiliate marketing. There are advanced training videos, ‘over the shoulder’ videos in which the author describes how he spends his money and how he earns it back, and free web hosting for 15 sites. It’s just $1 for a 30 day trial, so it’s worth signing up just for that alone. Here’s the link to the details.
Finally, there’s Affilotheme. It’s a suite of WordPress themes designed specifically for affiliate sites. Why try to create sites using themes that need edits and alterations to work as an affiliate site when you can buy a theme built by people in the same line of business? The package includes the usual first rate support and a money back guarantee. Go here for the details.
I expect you know the drill by now. Persistence and hard work pay off in the end. There are no short-cuts to online riches but if someone can show you the way then it does save you a lot of time and money.
I’ve been researching and experimenting with this area of online enterprise for some time so it was a pleasant surprise to find some free training in affiliate marketing provided by experts in this field.
Affilorama was founded by a chap called Mark Ling. He also happens to be a millionaire and he achieved this status through affiliate marketing.
Now he spends this time running a business that teaches others what he has learned. He is at the top of the ladder but he’s reaching down to help others up and the best bit about it is that some of those lessons are free of charge.
Mark started out on the ground floor, experimenting and learning as he delved into the world of affiliate marketing. He enjoyed some early success but like many who didn’t know what was ahead he was hit heavily by the Google algorithm changes. Sales dropped dramatically and success turned into failure and debt.
Dismayed and disillusioned he returned to the day job. However, the prospect of a lifetime at the coal face working for someone else was too depressing to contemplate so he gathered his energies together and launched back into the project.
Having applied what he’d already learned and added new techniques he found a way through and made his fortune.
So Mark Ling is like a pathfinder. He’s walked the whole route, found a way around or over obstacles, and now he’s ready to show you the way. What he has done others can do.
Not only that but a significant chunk of the material he’s put online is available free of charge. So now you’ve got now excuse for not starting your own journey into affiliate marketing.
Here’s the link to over 100 FREE lessons in affiliate marketing.
If you have any experience already in this subject then you will probably already be aware of the basic formula; finding profitable products to promote etc, so this list of categories will come as no surprise.
While they may not seem a revelation the important thing to remember is that they are the essential fundamentals. If you can master these then you can build a successful business.
* How to research and choose products that are worth the effort that goes into promotion
* How to design and create websites that will keep visitors on the page and engage with them
* How to optimise those websites for on-page and off-page search engine optimisation
* How to generate instant pay per click traffic with the right keywords and ad groups
* How to hire talented people who will grow your business by taking on the tasks you delegate to them
The videos are clear, concise, and not too long, so your focus and attention is maintained. This is the secret to absorbing knowledge piece by piece.
The training videos are categorised and displayed in such a way that you can work through them one by one if you’re a complete beginner. Alternatively, if you already have some experience you can cherry-pick and only watch those you feel are relevant to you.
However, I would suggest you use all of them for revision. All to often, what we think we know and what we actually remember is not what was originally taught. It’s easy to become complacent and revision is a way of filling in blanks or reminding us of things we have forgotten.
This is a course that would suit people with or without affiliate marketing experience.
By signing up you also get access to the Affilorama forums. Here you can ask questions and read the answers posted in reply to those from other students. It’s a mine of useful information and one of the richest you’ll find and the Affilorama staff often drop in to add their opinions and comments.
There’s a lot of free material here to get your teeth into but sooner or later you’ll probably want to change gear and move into more advanced topics. You’ll want to use the sort of tools that the full time affiliate marketers use.
As you might expect (this is a business after all) there is a subscription fee for these other sections of the Affilorama site but they do occasionally offer one dollar trials of the Premium subscription. You won’t know about these unless you’re already signed up as a free member so register now and stay tuned.
