New to Affiliate Marketing.

If you are new to the affiliate marketing industry, you might be asking yourself: What is affiliate marketing? Affiliate marketing is an affiliation between you and the company that has the product or services you would like to promote, and the company wants the public to know about the product or services. Companies will pay affiliate marketers to showcase their products or services on blogs, social media or product reviews along with other ways they are exposed.

Due to affiliate marketing is an affiliation between you and a certain company, their product or services must be known to the public through online advertising promotions. For instance, you have 5,000 visitors a day to your blog website that will have a corresponding equivalent to your affiliate marketing capability.

Choosing a Niche.

Think about the things you love to do for instance shopping, fishing, makeup, gaming, just to name a few. You choose the niche that must comfortable to you, write good blog content about the niche product chosen and insert ad links provided to you by the company in your blog content.

Choosing a product niche based on commission rates.

The easiest way to start your affiliate marketing business is with the Amazon Associate program. The approval is quick and you can directly share your affiliate links to their product or category pages to Twitter and Facebook without needing a website blog however I do recommend a website blog. I will tell you later about the Website Blog training.

The screenshot image provided is Amazon’s current commission rates per product and categories. You see the top paying commissions are Luxury Beauty and Amazon coins. By this table, you probably think you need to select Luxury Beauty or Amazon Coins as your niche but that is not true.
If you write good blog content concerning any product niche, people will come to your blog website and possibly buy product service through your site.

The screenshot image provided is an Amazon associate bar that appears on top of the browser window while you shop at their site. As mentioned earlier above Amazon features sharing products and services to social media sites Facebook and Twitter without needing Website Blog. You just click on the Facebook or Twitter icon and share the niche product to your social media accounts. I will go into more details of the text, image and text/image option later.

Training and Website Blog.

  1. Thanks a lot for sharing such an amazing article with us. 

    I’m trying to build an website using affiliate marketing program. Finding a niche was very difficult because the internet gives you the feeling that here is everything and it seems impossible to find something new that will bring success to your business and especially to have high traffic on the site. 

    You made me to think that it is very easy. I didn’t knew that it exist this program from Amazon and sharing my affiliate links to their products. It is so big advantage that i can share this link on my social media account where i have a lot of followers. This can help me in finding a good niche which describes all the products i want to sell. Thanks again and i hope to see more posts like this. Wish you all the best. 

    • Yes, the affiliate links can be shared directly from each product page or category on your social media accounts Facebook and Twitter. This comes in handy to share top sellers or special deals for a day. 

  2. Hi there, thank you for sharing this post on choosing a niche for Affiliate Marketing. From my experience so far, choosing a niche is one of the most time consuming factor in birthing an affiliate marketing business online. Beginners tend to make mistakes. One should choose a niche based on one’s interest and passion (just as you have stated earlier: it should be one that is comfortable and I believe our passions are comfortable for us) and not all about the money.

    Amazon is one of the best place to get products we can recommend for our niche website. As a beginner, it is important to get started in a community with all the trainings, tools and support.

    Affiliate marketing is no brainer with Wealthy Affiliate.

    All the best friends.

    • I also believe Amazon is the best Affiliate program for beginners, as easy to get approved and do not need website or blog. Amazon can help beginners choose a niche, as other Affiliate programs can be overwhelming to beginners who have no experience. 

  3. This is of great help to me because I was paying attention to selling physical products online and I found out that the connection and the supply and the coordination was not moving my products fast enough. I am still in that business but i am now going to work on affiliate marketing because operating in this way seems less of a hassle and should provide additional income. Thanks for the description of the process

  4. I believe affiliate marketing is the best way to earn money online in today’s world. However this is far from an easy job. Nothing I have done so far has came easy in this affiliate marketing thing and didn’t I mention that I have not made a red cent yet and I feel like I’m miles from making a sale. I believe people need to know the pros and the cons of this business. However I do agree that if a person is just starting out WA is the way to go.

  5. Now a days I noticed many of my friends also stared with affiliate marketing. When I discuss about affiliate marketing. I know they are already doing affiliate marketing from their home. Now everyone is encouraging their friends about affiliate marketing. My best friend recently started their blog and getting good results. Soon he is going full time.

  6. Choosing a profitable niche is very important. When choosing a niche, as you said, it should be something that you love. I think it is because you must enjoy writing about it in order to be able to make posts frequently which will boost the trust of search engines. Another factor is that the niche should be easily monetized. Someone new to affiliate marketing must also think in advance on how he or she plans to monetize the niche that they love to write about. That’s why I like that you have a topic for Product Niche based on commission rates. I think knowing about how to monetize your niche is as important as making sure you love your niche. Being unable to successfully monetize my niche is one of my early mistakes that I would also like to share. 

    Also, I would like to add that I am very happy with Wealthy Affiliate. Because of their training and tools, I was able to earn money online and also write and publish topics that I really like.

    • One of my early mistakes of monetizing for my two niche sites started out with and I can think Wealthy Affiliate for the training.

    • Hello Feji, sure hope this is a great help to affiliate marketing as tried to describe for easy understanding without long lengthy articles. 

  8. Some great guidance for beginners who are choosing a niche to promote for 2020. I will recommend that people asking me what is the process to get started come here and read through your article.

    I do agree that you would be better off to get a blog and website started so you can draw in the people that may be looking for what you are promoting.
