Make Money With Affiliate Marketing - 2 Things You Need To Understand
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

If you ask me, I think affiliate marketing is by far the fastest way to make money online. The key to learning how to make money with affiliate marketing is to understand these two things... 1. A product and 2. A Customer. If you want to become a good affiliate marketer and make a full time income doing so, you need to understand those two things. Let's talk about them...

1. A Product - Affiliate marketing is basically when you market someone else's product and earn a commission when someone purchase that product through your unique affiliate link. When you choose a product to market, no matter what niche it's in, you really need to learn what the product is about, and what it provides. If you don't know what the product does, you aren't going to be able to match it up with the right customer. For example: If it's a weight loss product, how does it help someone lose weight? Is it a low carb diet? Low calorie? Exercise plans? You need to know exactly what the product's purpose is and how it works.

Your diet product might be directed towards people that are looking for low carb diets specifically. If that's the case (this is just an example) you don't want to market that product to someone who doesn't want a low carb diet. You see what I'm getting at? If you understand the product you are promoting and who it's directed towards, you know how to market it.

2. A Customer - Next, you need to understand you customer and what they are looking for. Just like the example I gave above, if you don't know what your customer is looking for, you aren't going to be able to match them up with the right product. Keeping the example the same, you chose to market a weight loss product. This product is based around a low carb diet. So, you want to get this product in fron of people who are looking to lose weight with a low carb diet.

So, know that you understand your product and the cutomer it's geared towards, you can start marketing and making money. Since the product is a weight loss product that is centered around a low carb diet, you want to do your research and see what people are looking for you. Whether you are going to do article promotions, PPC, SEO, or anything else, your marketing efforst should be focused around low carb diets.

Learning affiliate marketing isn't just about driving traffic to products. If you want to know how to make money with affiliate marketing, you need to understand what you are promoting and you need to understand who is looking for that product. If you do this right, you don't need a crazy amount of traffic to make money. If you are targeting the right customers with the right products, you are going to convert well and make money.
