With practice you could really do well in any niche you decide to concentrate on. It is easier if your niche is in an area where you have skills or if it is your passion.

You could also choose a niche due to the high demand it has.

Doing all these gives you an idea of the type of website you are to build. You can build different types of websites targeting different types of business structures. websites could be easily installed using word press and there are plugins that you could use to handle the financial detail.

A good example is using a shopping cart. Registering your domain name and your web hosting could also be grouped under this major aspect of affiliate marketing.

5. Boosting Traffic to your Website

Once you have finished setting up your website, all that is left is to generate traffic to it, Note that at this stage, the website already contains your merchant account and the products you intend to sell. All your efforts will amount to nothing if nobody is aware of your website and the products you are promoting.

There are basically the free and paid ways of generating traffic to your website, often times both methods are used. Apart from using free and paid methods of generating traffic, you could also use affiliates and joint ventures to promote your products.

6. Monetization of your Website.

After all, the main purpose of being in affiliate marketing is to generate lots of commissions. You need to have a structure that will be making you money even when you are not there.
