Affiliate marketing is not difficult it is, in fact, one of the easiest and sure ways to make money online. However, as with anything, it is important for you to know the basics of affiliate marketing.
So, let’s start at the beginning. The first part of affiliate marketing is obviously getting products to sell.

In order to do this, you will need to set up an account with one or more of the affiliate networks. For most people who are just starting out, ClickBank is the best way to go. ClickBank has a great record and over 10,000 products. And, they are now offering weekly payouts so you get a regular paycheck!

The next phase of the basics of affiliate marketing is product selection. There are a lot of products out there, so which ones should you choose? Your first reaction is probably going to be the most obvious choice, find the products with the highest conversion rate and the highest commission. This is a good strategy and it works for 90% of the affiliates out there, which is the problem.

You will be offering the same products as 90% of the affiliates out there. So, how do you get good products without signing yourself up for the uphill battle of having lots of competition when you are just starting out. Take a look at the history of some of the more popular products, some products will be number one sellers for a while and then they fade away.

This is the natural cycle of things and it is something you can take advantage of. Once a product has been out of the spotlight for a few months, most of the affiliates will have moved on to other products. This means those “lost” products could be a goldmine waiting to happen. Of course, it is important to make sure the products are still relevant.

Other basics of affiliate marketing include selecting your advertising methods and writing ad copy.
