Find A Hungry Niche
Get out a pen and paper and write down all of your interests, hobbies and things you are good at. Then take that list, get out your favorite keyword tool (or use the free Google External Keyword Tool) and find some high searched keyword phrases. Take your completed list of keyword phrases and pick a niche.
Find A Product To Sell
Now go to ClickBank.com, PayDotCom.com, CommissionJunction.com and LinkShare.com and look for products to sell that fit the niche that you picked. If you can’t find anything at those sites, do a search on Google by entering the name of your niche followed by the word “affiliate program”.
Set Up Your Site
By now you should have found a niche with some high searched keyword phrases and a product that you can sell as an affiliate. Your next step would be to get a website going where you can sell your niche product. The easiest site to get going is a blog. There are many sites
Send Traffic To Your Site
Your site is useless if it doesn’t get any traffic so this is a very important step. There are many ways to generate traffic and two of my favorites are article marketing and video marketing. Submitting articles to sites like EzineArticles.com and GoArticles.com will bring in traffic from the sites themselves but will also bring you traffic from Google because Google loves ranking those sites pretty high in their search engine. Those article sites allow you to include author bio boxes which you can place your sites URL that people will click on and land on your site.
Video submission sites like YouTube.com are also great for traffic generation because YouTube gets millions of visitors to their site checking out their videos everyday. Plus YouTube videos get high rankings in Google which also make them appealing.
