1.      Choose topics that you know.

Where can you start with your affiliate marketing program?  Things you know and are familiar with is the best starting point.  You can write content for topics that you like and are close to your heart, your interests or your passions.  When you have the knack for things already, then you can move on to other more complex topics and other areas of interest.

2.      Get to know your audience more.

In order to be more effective in your marketing efforts, you have to analyze well your audience profile.  The more you know about them, the more info you have, the better the content you can produce to target their specific needs.  Come up with content that can match their personalities.  Present affiliate products that you feel would be useful or beneficial to them.  Direct them to sites that can hold their interest well and serve their purpose.

3.      Make good recommendations.

Put value in your site by making it a reliable source of information about products that you are affiliated with.  Don’t just simply put links in your site, or product photos and references.  It would be good if you can put in a product review, additional information about the product and your ratings of it.

4.      Keep your articles undated.

If you keep older article relevant with the times by not dating them, they can still generate readership for you.  Though they are no longer currently shown on your front page, these older articles can still attract readers and still make money for you.

And most importantly, remember that patience is a virtue.  No one can ever get rich overnight.  It takes time to establish an on-going affiliate marketing business.  But with dedication and commitment to it, you can reap benefits of the seeds you’ve sown.
