How To Become a Successful Affiliate Marketer?
When I was new in affiliate marketing, this was the first question that came into my mind.
At that time, I didn’t get all the answers. But somehow I was able to start affiliate marketing,
Since then everything changed.
First Step To Become Successful Affiliate Marketer
No one starts to do affiliate marketing by learning each and everything.
So, the First step to become a successful affiliate marketer is to start doing affiliate marketing.
Those who don’t start will never know how much they could earn from affiliate marketing.

There are more things that you need to know if you really want to understand how to become a successful affiliate marketer.
Successful Affiliate Marketer Has A Plan
Affiliate marketing is not about picking random products and promoting them to make some dollars.
You need a plan to become a successful affiliate marketer.
To make a plan, you don’t need to be a mastermind.
Here is an example of my plan:-
Recently, I started to promote an online trading platform that was offering a 50% commission on broker profit.
Step1: I made a video on how to trade on this platform effectively. ( You can hire a freelancer in Fiverr to make videos)
Step 2: I published that video on YouTube by selecting unlisted. (It means this video can be viewed only if you have a link of this video.)
Step 3: I made a new Instagram business account. I also used bitly to shorten my affiliate link and I kept that link in website section of my Instagram account.
Step 4: I wrote “Want my profitable trading strategy, Message Me” in the bio section.
Step 5: Then I started to post pictures that show profits and Link in bio text in it. I also used various related hashtags to increase my reach by seeing similar other posts on Instagram.
Now, Some people will come to my profile and sign up to the platform.
I’ll also start to give my YouTube video link to those who message me for strategy.
You can also put an affiliate link in the description of your YouTube video and put the link of that video on your Instagram website section.
This is a recent example of a plan that you can make as an affiliate marketer to get free traffic.
Learn About Product and Audience
Throughout the time you’ll evolve and learn how to become a successful affiliate marketer.
But, today it is important to learn about two things for your success in affiliate marketing.
Best Way To Learn About Product:
To have a proper understanding of the product, you can watch product review videos or blogs.
It will be easy for you to learn about products through those people who have already consumed it.
These consumers can give you proper information either this product works or are just a scam.
Always choose a genuine product to promote as an affiliate marketer.
Best Way To Learn About Audience:
Once you find a genuine product to promote.
Then you can see in the comment section of those YouTube videos. To know what type of questions and mindset your audience have.
You can even utilize Quora by typing the name of the product to learn, what type of questions your audience have in their mind.
One Thing To Know About Google
As an affiliate marketer, we are all here to make money but what if we are not able to make sales.
Google is there for us to save us from this disaster.
Google is a search engine, where people keep on searching for various informational content.
It means Affiliate Marketers who have their website and informational content will get free organic traffic from google.
You can make your website and start to write informational content to help people get their answers.
As an affiliate marketer, you can utilize these free organic traffic in three ways:-
- Earn by promoting affiliate products
- Earn by showing Contextual Ads.
- Earn by Selling Your E book or Course.
It is always a better choice to have a backup plan for success. You’ll still be making money even if you failed as an affiliate marketer in this way.
It may sound hard for you but with my suggested affiliate marketing training, that is in the menu section above, everything will be more than easy for you.
How long does it take to be a successful affiliate marketer?
My straight answer would be at least one year.
But it can be much faster or slower than that. Everything depends on your thought process.
Every affiliate marketer indeed wants to make money but that cannot be the thought process.
A successful affiliate marketer always thinks of helping people with the products they are promoting.
For Example: By thinking to make good commission. If I suggest you to take some crap training about affiliate marketing then what happens?
You are most likely to ignore me and that training in the future. Isn’t it?
Similarly, If you just think of making money and don’t want to help people. Then you’ll never become a successful affiliate marketer.
Is Affiliate Marketing Easy?
Yes, Affiliate Marketing is easy but the platforms that you’ll use to promote affiliate products can be complicated.
You need proper knowledge to Handel these platforms like: Google Ads, Bing Ads, Facebook Ads and so on.
It is not important to use paid platforms if you can drive free traffic to your affiliate products and get conversions.
Using free platforms can be easier and cost-free for an affiliate marketer to become successful.
How much money can you make as an affiliate marketer?
There is infinite possibility. If you can make $1 then you can make thousands of $1 again and again.
As a teenage boy, $100 was a huge thing for me.
But I was eager to make money online.
I didn’t even know how to promote affiliate products.
At that time, A good friend Alexander Gallardo from Mexico, gave his two hours to teach me Google AdWords.
I made $12000 straight from his teaching within some months.
After making that amount of commission. I became unstoppable to make money from affiliate marketing,
Moral: Keep on learning to find a thing that works and you can also taste your initial success as an affiliate marketer.

I am able to grab various success in affiliate marketing and my experience has been the best teacher for me.
You’ll make several mistakes in your journey. Whenever you realize your mistake either note it down or memorize it.
