Here are 4 important points to assist with your affiliate marketing training. These will hopefully assist you with affiliate marketing training and help you to find further free affiliate marketing training.
1) Research is key. It is essential to know what search terms people are using in order to offer them a solution. There are various tools available to analyze the keywords people are using to search online. Google AdWords has a series of useful tools for this purpose and it is free to use.
2) Having a web presence is also a great affiliate marketing help, as it gives you a place to direct customers so that they can receive further information and potentially go on to buy your affiliate’s products. Before you can have a website however, you will need to find a place to host your site and a unique domain name. Web hosting is relatively cheap these days and packages often include a free domain name and website as part of the service. There are probably free web hosting accounts to be found, but they usually have several restrictions such as limited storage space or mandatory unwanted advertising on your home page as a condition of it’s use. These are not really recommended.
3) Further research will need to be done when looking for your affiliates. The affiliate revenue on offer will vary greatly, so it’s important to find one or more that you will be happy with. Also, when considering a product for marketing, try to find one that you are passionate about, as this will make it a more enjoyable process and people will be able to tell you are genuine. Many free affiliate programs can be found by searching Google.
4) For a real jump start and continued training, try to find a mentor (either offline or online) to work with you and teach you the best online marketing practices, everything from keyword research to helping you to drive large volumes of traffic to your site. Some will offer free advice, while others will require payment. You will need to look around, but Google is your friend.
To recap, it is important to research your target market, set up a suitable web presence, find affiliates you are happy to endorse and if possible, find someone in the know to assist, as it can get a little daunting when starting out. Hopefully this has given you some things to consider and points you in the right direction.
