guy-computer-money-smallerAffiliate marketing is hot, easy to do, and profitable for just about anyone. I’m writing a series of affiliate tip articles, so hopefully you’ve seen some others that I have written and once you put them together you’ll have a comprehensive guide to becoming successful in affiliate marketing.

Affiliate tip #2 – Don’t spread yourself too thin. If you’re just beginning in affiliate marketing then find one good, solid, quality product or service to promote and test waters that way. You have to find what your talented in or the easiest way that you find to advertise your affiliate link. You may be very comfortable with writing articles, so focus your affiliate link on those. However, you may not be Twitter-savvy so joining that may not be an option. Once you find your ideal promotion materials and strategies then you can begin adding similar affiliate products.

If your first affiliate program is about baby products then you can later expand that affiliate association to include ebooks about potty training, toddler behavior, or sitter services, things of that nature. You expand your niche a little further while still staying inside the barriers. This way your not stretching yourself too thin so the affiliate programs are not clashing, but they are complimenting one another.

Of course one of the easiest ways of combining all of these affiliate programs into one is by having your own website, especially a blog style site. This can incorporate all your affiliate links into one area. Another option is to have a squeeze page and offer a free e-book. This way it builds your email list and you can email your list with new affiliate products you’re promoting, but that’s another affiliate tip to be discussed later.

Don’t let that fool you though, people want quality content. If you don’t offer anything except “buy me” ads then your list and readership will shrink. Create your own promotional products for affiliate programs. You can do how-to videos, be interviewed on podcasts (or create your own), write articles, or contribute to forums or guest blogging somewhere. There are also many community websites out there where you can become an expert at.

Once you’ve gotten a hang of promotion, advertising, and affiliate programs… then is the time to explore alternative niches. By this time, your other affiliate programs may be running on automatic and you can focus on something different. Until then, do one thing at a time and give it the quality time it deserves.
