Lots of marketers, when they first start out, don't have a lot of money to put into their marketing. They also don't have the resources, time or skill to create their own products and services. So they resort to affiliate marketing. The problem they run into is that they don't have the cash to put into a big advertising campaign. Well, this article is going to show you how to do affiliate marketing on the cheap, or close to free, and still make quite a few sales out of the deal.
The first step is to find yourself an affiliate product that you believe in. In order to do that, you're going to have to get a review copy from the owner. Don't worry, in many cases you won't have to purchase one yourself. Just email the owner and tell him that you want to sell his product and ask if you can get a copy to review. If you come across as sincere in your request, more often than not, you'll get a review copy.
The next step is to set up a blog with either Blogger or Wordpress. This won't cost you anything either. Once you've done this, write a review of the product that you're going to promote. Naturally, you will have had to try it first. If it's a book, read it. If it's software, try it out. Make sure you understand the product well enough to talk about it intelligently. At the end of your review, put a link to the product so that readers can check it out. Naturally, you will use your affiliate link to do this.
The final step is to start writing articles related to the niche that this product is in. Make sure there is a strong tie in between the article and the product itself so that readers can see, after reading your article, that the product you're promoting is most likely a good solution for them. Take this article and submit it to article directories online. Ezine Articles I have found to be the best of them all. Make sure that in your resource box you have a strong call to action for the reader to visit your blog. If the article is informative enough, you should get a lot of visitors.
None of the above will cost you a cent and it's very effective. Using this approach I made $475 in just 6 days.
Give it a shot. You might be pleasantly surprised at the results.
