Starting Your Affiliate Business, The Correct Way

First of all, I need to add a disclaimer saying that this is only my opinion. Yours may differ a little bit or a lot. If it does, then leave a comment and let me know what you think or how you would do it better than me.


If you are new to this business, just getting started, or maybe even just spinning your wheels trying to figure out what is going on. This will lead you in the right direction and get you started. So first things first, you are going to need to spend some money. So I would suggest having a budget of some sort to start with. If you don’t have a budget, you can click here for a good read on how to create a budget. I will also put the link at the bottom of this post. It is a direct download to the ebook, so there is no signing up to anything unless you want to.

Once you have your budget, you are going to need a few basic things to start. The big three as I like to call them. An autoresponder, a tracker, and a page builder. These three seperate pieces are good, but when combined create something more powerful. (When I think of powers combined, I am always reminded of the old Captain Planet cartoon. lol) So go get your three pieces: autoresponder, tracker, page builder.

Ok, now you must build a squeeze page, add your autoresponder to that page, then add the page link into the tracker. Doing that will give you a tracking URL. Now put that URL wherever you want to advertise. And advertise the $hit out of it. Simple right? Yeah, I thought so too. But it does get a little more complicated.  Once you get let’s say 5,000 hits to your tracker URL, you should start to see a signup or couple thousand or whatever. Looking at your tracker stats, you will see where you are getting the most signups, FOCUS ON WHERE YOU GET CONVERSIONS, not where gives you the best return, not who gives you the most pennies for surfing. WHEREVER YOU GET THE BEST RESULTS IS WHERE YOU SHOULD PROMOTE!!!!!!!!

If you get 5,000 hits and not a single person has signed up or very few, you need to fix your squeeze page. There is something wrong with it. NO, I DO NOT KNOW WHAT IS WRONG WITH IT. Can I help? Sure. But there are a bunch of people out there that know how to build a good page. None the less, you can skype me at anytime. My skype is just up and to the right of here :). Adjust your page and once again advertise the heck out of your page. Get as many hits from all over that you can, and watch the stats.

From here, just keep tweaking your page(s) to try and get the most conversions out of them. And over time, you CAN build a pretty hefty subscriber list, to which you can promote anything you want to them. YES, you can PROMOTE ANYTHING YOU WANT TO YOUR LIST!!!! But that’s a whole other blog post for another time.


Like I said at the start, this is just my opinion and a very basic overview. Let me know your thoughts on how wrong I am by leaving a comment below!!!

  1. Great post, Blain. Budgeting is something that most new marketers ignore. The best thing about affiliate marketing online is that you can start a business for much less than a traditional brick and mortar but you still need some investment or it will never succeed.
