  • Great article Jason, very helpful!
    I am still in the process of finding my niche… and it’s not an easy one.
    when I think of my interests, I am thinking scuba diving and travelling… Do you think these 2 could be a starting point?
    Thank you for your great articles and reviews…

    • Melanie, Those are both great starting points. If you have a passion and you know about it then this is a good niche. Once you begin to add content to your site you will begin seeing natural traffic flow through your site. I am always here to help, unless the Lord takes me home. Hopefully that will be a long time from now. If there is anything you need moving forward please let me know.

  • Wish I’d seen this before. Awesome article. I enjoyed this. Thank you for sharing this post

  • Thank you,

  • The key to draw visitors to your website is to have high quality content; thus, the next thing you must pay attention to in building your marketing website is this. There may be several other factors that contribute to the success of your affiliate marketing site, but a good content tops the list. This is precisely the reason why users choose to enter your site. They want to get information and so when they don’t find it, they would definitely go elsewhere. Write interesting articles related to your theme as this would make them frequent your site. If you have already looked for affiliate programs that complement your site, add links to the business sites and other very good informative sites. Links contribute to how well you will be listed in major search engines as well. Also, create pages for the products you are endorsing, but don’t just promote the products by putting hyped-up ads. Keep your readers interested by injecting lots of relevant and useful information. This would make them click the link to the business site and buy the product. Remember that no good content means no frequent visitors, no sales and ultimately, no commission.

  • Fabulous, what a weblog it is! This web site gives useful data
    to us, keep it up.

    • Thank you,
      I’m glad this helps you.

  • You are right a website is the principal foundation of your business. And is great for Affiliate Marketing you have the opportunity to promote a lot of products.

    • It is also great for providing others with helpful and useful information. If someone comes to your website looking for information and you are able to be helpful you will have a visitor for a long time to come.

  • After 4 years of getting nowhere online, and then spending a year with Wealthy Affiliate I just want to share a couple things I’ve learned.

    1. Building a great looking website is not as hard as it seems.

    2. The opportunities that exist in affiliate marketing is mind boggling!

    Someone new gets online for the first time every seven seconds. Think about that!

    I don’t know how many times I’ve heard someone say, “I wish I had gotten in on the ground floor of that”. Starting an affiliate marketing business is a perfect example of how to do that very thing.

    • Steve, I spent about 4 years getting nowhere also and have only been with Wealthy Affiliate for about 7 months. In that time I can honestly say that I have accomplished more in 7 months at WA than I was able to in 4 years using other so called opportunities.

  • Hello, Jason.

    Your 4 steps to starting an affiliate marketing business are amazing and will definitely be putting them to very good use in order to help change my life around 🙂

    Thanks for the valuable info…


    • Let me know if I can help Neil. I would be happy to offer my assistance.
      Best Wishes

  • I spend quite some time to figure out my niche. Do I venture into something that I like or do I try something that people are interested in? Thanks to the robust training in Wealthy Affiliate, I was able to merge the two together in a very interesting manner.

    • Yes you have. I love the theme and layout of your website. You are doing a awesome job Cathy.

  • Well, if some people can do it, maybe we can, too. In all fields there are tricks, and there is a lot of work to do. But, where there is a will, there is a way.
    Thank you for this good helping article here.

    • Hey Laura, you are absolutely correct. Where there is a will there is a way. It took me almost 4 years before I found a opportunity online that made me decent money, but I stuck with it and I am so happy I did.

  • Great information. It makes me want to try my luck at affiliate marketing. I know peoe make money at this.
    Thank you so much!
