The best part is that you don’t have to produce, test, or submit anything.

Your job is to sell and make money.

That being said, let’s look at how to create a profitable Affiliate Marketing business.

Here are the 6 steps:

Find out how to start your own Affiliate Marketing business and earn money from home!

1. Select a Product/Affiliate

Decide first what you want to market.

Pick a product you love.

• Pick a product you like – If you don’t like it, you’ll grow bored soon and won’t like marketing it.

Promote a product you use.

It might be a sport or a fad.

Promoting what you love never gets old.

• Pick an affiliate programme that pays well (above 20 per cent)

The Affiliate Program you join should pay you over 20% commission.

High Commission will allow you to pay for advertising and earn money.

ClickFunnels gives a substantial 50% commission. Google it.

2. Platform Create material is a long-term enterprise…

This may be done via a blog post, YouTube channel, or Instagram account.

This way you may build up your audience on one platform until it pays off on all of them.

How often will you generate content?

A couple of times a week isn’t enough. Consider these platforms:

• YouTube – sell anything on YouTube. Consistency is the key to success. YouTube Logo

• Pinterest – Sell Affiliate Products to a female audience on Pinterest.

Post 3 new pins every day.

• Instagram is a travel and fitness site. Posting daily is recommended.

• Blog – A blog is a terrific idea.

SEO (search engine optimisation) If you can afford it, paying for visitors to your blog is a great idea.

To publish more regularly, I propose at least once each month.

• Tik-Tok

A new social networking platform with potential.

I’d recommend it to get the most out of the site with your marketing.

Ads will generate many of your first sales.

Build an organic following to drive free traffic into your sales funnel.

3. Target Audience We must ask ourselves a vital question.

Who do we want to sell?

We will struggle to sell if we do not know who we are attempting to market to.

Finding a target market in Affiliate Marketing is half the battle.

First, know your market/target audience.

Think about it…

• What do they seek online?

In what pursuits do your target audience engage? •

Who do they spend time with?

• Do they use social media, product websites, or Google?

• Who is your target audience and where do they live?

4. Sales Funnel Design

Having a blog or website used to be enough to run a successful Affiliate Marketing business.

But currently, there is so much competition that people’s attention spans have shrunk.

Our attention span is compared to that of a Goldfish.

We have seconds to captivate customers.

You must gain their attention and action.


This is a digital brochure/business card, therefore getting people to notice, remain on our page and interact may be difficult.

A Sales Funnel is incredibly effective.

The Sales Funnel is your best salesman, just like your website is. Website/blog Image

Other sales funnels are available.

Looking at the Tripwire Funnel for product sales.

To generate leads, the Squeeze Page Funnel excels.

5. Short– and long–term traffic-driving

To generate money from the Sales Funnel, you need to promote it.

There is long–term and short–term traffic.

It’s also important to drive the correct visitors to your Sales Funnel.

Short–term traffic will immediately drive customers to your Sales Funnel.

A sponsored ad on Facebook, YouTube, Pinterest, or Google is the greatest approach to send visitors to the Sales Funnel.

Create advertising that solely targets your ideal niche.

This will save on CPC and advertising expenditures.

In most cases, you may market to influencers’ fans.

Sponsored postings to influencers’ audiences that match yours.

A start. To promote your services or products, you must pay third-party websites and affiliates.

Assure they use your affiliate link. Long-term traffic that pays for years.


• SEO — getting your website/blog ranked on Google and YouTube.

It might take up to 6 months for Google or YouTube to index your site.

While this process might take a month, the rewards are worth the wait.

• Influencer Marketing – Forming connections with like-minded people might be beneficial to our business.

The same goes for you and influencers.

Both parties benefit.

6. Must have Expertise!

Answer this…


For example, why buy Clickfunnels through an affiliate rather than the product’s website?

Here are a few key reasons.

1. This is their initial exposure to the product.

2. The affiliate was a natural seller.

3. The affiliate has sold before and is trusted online.

Given the first and second arguments, you should pay for adverts.

You can target a new market or offer a new product.

So, you may earn more money.

To succeed in Affiliate Marketing, you must be an authority in your subject.

You must become a trusted personality on the website/blog, known for repeat purchases.

People will trust you and your affiliate marketing business will expand.

Building an Affiliate Marketing Business takes time.

It requires time and effort.

Consumer trust is earned through providing exceptional products and building an audience.

Stay focused on creating an Affiliate Marketing Business.

Success is waiting for you.

Good Luck

  1. Another great way to make money through affiliate marketing is through Google adsense. I have been using it for some time now and I have been making a crazy amount of money. It has truly changed my life for the better and I would recommend everyone to try it out. The acceptance process is long and hard though so be prepared to work 

    • Thank you for your comment Aubin,

      I also have signed up for Google AdSense but still waiting for some minor details to be taken care of on the Googles end. 

      I already made some money but it has to be approved once Google has fixed everything they have to do.

      It is a great way to make money and there is a bit of work for it all to be set up. 

      Thanks again for your comment
