How to start an online business? That’s one of the most frequently asked questions by internet marketers who dream about quitting their day jobs and make money with affiliate marketing or work from home. You see, when people start thinking about making money online they always think they need a website and they forget about other ways to get paid on the internet. One of the methods that I’m going to show you in this article will be affiliate marketing, where you promote other people’s products and get paid commissions if someone buys them through your links. Let me tell you more about it!

About This Guide

Affiliate marketing is one of the easiest ways to start a online business. This step-by-step guide will help you build your own affiliate website and start making money as an affiliate marketer. If you don’t know what affiliate marketing is, it’s basically selling other peoples products and services. The advantage here over starting a brick-and-mortar shop or other type of online store or selling info products is that you don’t have any upfront costs involved in launching your business.

Step 1 - Learn the basics of starting a business

If you're just starting out and have never started a business before, it's important to learn all of the basics. When I first started making money online, I would spend hours searching for information about each part of my business because I had no idea what it was that I should be doing! Start by learning how to start a business from HowStuffWorks . com - click here if you'd like to do research on other aspects of your business as well (promotion, sales, etc.). It's best if you start by researching everything so that once your business is off and running, you already know how to keep things in check. Step 2 - Choose an affiliate program: Once you've read through tons of articles on how to start a business and understand every aspect of being self-employed , pick an affiliate program or three to work with.

Step 2 - Learn about affiliate marketing

Affiliate marketing is an easy way to earn money by promoting products you know and love on your own site or social media platforms. To get started, sign up for a free account on one of these affiliate networks: Facebook, Twitter, Google+. With your free account, you can choose from thousands of products in various categories that are ideal for sharing with your friends and followers. If a friend clicks on one of your product links and makes a purchase, you will earn a percentage of that sale. It’s like getting a commission every time someone you refer does something—except it doesn’t cost you anything! Check out our post about 10 reasons why affiliate marketing is awesome.

Step 3 - Get Started

Taking Action Now that you’ve got some solid topics, it’s time to start researching and writing. But first, here are a few more tips for getting started. Start by collecting all of your information together: Make a list of all of your keywords, points and any additional information that will be helpful in organizing your content (for example, resources or references). Be sure to read these keywords carefully! Check out our list below. Pick up where you left off on your outline. Don’t feel pressured to write a lot when you start—remember, quality beats quantity every time. You can always come back and add more later. Get started writing – even if just for 5 minutes... Once you get started, it usually helps to write as much as possible before stopping.

Step 4 - Keep going!

Once you've finished a few topics, check out Kuler and find some cool color combinations to use for your posts. If you want to get fancy, try creating a visual calendar (like Trello) so that you can see what topics need attention down the road. I also recommend looking into keyword research using SEO tools such as Long Tail Pro or Spyfu. These tools can help you figure out what type of content people are searching for in your industry so that you can write posts around them. Finally, be sure to stay up-to-date on what's going on within your field by checking out industry blogs and forums like Reddit (be wary of self-promotion there!). See if you can contribute any good information from time to time, giving yourself free publicity when it's appropriate!
