Niche and Competitor Study

The success of your affiliate site depends heavily on the level of market competition. It will take time before you can make a referral commission if you choose a niche that is overcrowded.

Keyword Research

You want to look at keywords suited to your niche, just like competition research. Get an idea of how many people in Google are searching for your niche and how difficult it is.


A lot of hosting providers are on the market, do not host for free, you could later regret that if you do not have the site, because most free Hosting services do not have the help of customers. WordPress is simple to use and it provides a lot of free blog templates.

Affiliate Network

Make your niche a list of membership programs. Check out the program commission structure, note whether the program has a flat fee or recurrent fees.

Only a single referral commission will give you a flat fee structure. The Amazon Associated Program is an example of a flat fee structure. Other affiliate programs may offer recurring fees. That means you get several commissions for one referral.

Keep in mind that it also depends on whether the organization sells a product or service for the commission structure of programs. Usually, recurring commissions with services are more common because people purchase a monthly or annual permit for example.

Only by promoting quality products will you appear unreliable by encouraging bad quality products.

Content Skills

Ensure that you give your readers real value. Seek in-depth your products, read online reviews, compare and review lengthy articles. You are directly linked to the quality of your content by clicking on your affiliate link. Your job is to provide your readers with sufficient information for an informed purchase decision.

Build your Audience

It takes time for an audience to build up and get Google organic traffic. Keep posting and know that marketing for affiliates is not an easy method of earning money.
