    Top WSOHalbertology - Everything You Thought You Knew About Marketing Just Changed!

    Here is the easiest way to get started with an affiliate marketing program. What you are going to want to do is go to Clickbank and register, after that you will want to go to the marketplace section of the Clickbank website.

    What I usually do is start by searching a subject that interest me. There are a lot of categories to choose from so you should not have a problem finding a product or two that is related to your area of interest. Now you can promote as many products from Clickbank that you like, however I urge you to resist promoting anymore than 1 product as a beginner since it is just way to easy to lose your focus in the beginning.

    There are many programs out there which are basically a mall of affiliate marketing products which usually sells many different Clickbank products. Basically you send potential customers to the mall and you get commissions on anything that is purchased through your link.

    I have never personally tried using an online mall that sells Clickbank products and this is basically because I like to have a focused niche and not just sell a wide variety of products at my websites. However this is not to say you can’t make money this way I just have never personally had any interest in trying to sell my affiliate products this way.

    When you find a product that you like, you will then want to go to the products sales pitch page, if you like the copy of the page as well as the affiliate commission structure, then you are going to most likely want to promote and sell the product. To do this you are going to want to click on the “create a hop link” button which will give you a hyperlink to that product. This hyperlink is what you will want to use to send potential customers to the product that you are promoting.

    You are going to want to make a copy of the link somewhere else on your computer or on a piece of paper. Now before I go any further I would urge you to purchase a domain name that has to do with whatever niche it is that you are promoting. Now if you are just getting started you most likely will not want to have to pay for hosting, so if you are not going to send the potential customers to a pitch page etc. then you will want to forward them directly to the affiliate website.

    You can do this easily by simply just forwarding your domain name preferably by masking it so that it isn’t just redirected but that it looks like it is your very own website. Some affiliates will not allow this so make sure that they do not mind.

    Promoting Your Product

    Promoting your product is essentially your main focus. So you are going to want to gain all the information about the product you are promoting that you possibly can. If you can buy the product or simply ask the vendor if you can test the product out yourself many times they will be more than happy to let you do this.

    Yahoo Answers

    Some of the ways you can go about promoting your product is with Yahoo Answers what you are going to want to do find a question related to your niche and then give an informative answer not just tell them to go to “blah blah product” because they and everyone else on there are going to know that you are just trying to sell your product and not trying to be helpful. If you do this right you can make a lot of money. As a matter of fact with one of my answers I was able to get over 900 visitors to my website within 24 hours.

    Video Marketing

    You can create a video within your chosen niche that talks about whatever problem etc. someone may be having and then tell of how the product you are promoting has helped you or better yet do a video packed with information that is helpful on your chosen niche and simply just have a link to your site in the description area.

    Article Marketing

    This has probably been where I had the majority of my success as an affiliate marketer early on. Basically you are going to want to write articles that are within your chosen niche and then in the Resource Box you are going to want to make a promotional statement about whatever product you are promoting with your affiliate link.


    I did not go into a lot detail here simply because I want to give you a basic idea of what a beginner in internet marketing is going to need to do to get started making money online.
