That’s the core goal of marketing!

The Internet has thousands of different communities that are looking for products/services that may correlate to what you are selling. By understanding through proper research, you’ll be able to tap into those communities searching for what you have to offer.

Choosing the right niche is easier than you may think and which products to promote your business. Two of the largest companies to get involved with for products are Click Bank and Amazon. Click Bank is noted for its digital products from books on various subjects to software and video packages all sent over the web. Amazon, on the other hand, deals with shipping products right to your door. Of the thousands of affiliate programs out there these two are very popular for most people.

A key thing to remember is always knowing about the product or services you promote by testing or using them before you promote them. After all, you’ll be building your reputation on what you sell.

Traffic Sources


Regardless of what online business you choose to do, traffic is a fundamental component to your online success. If people do not see the product/service, you offer then you’ll make no sales.

There are two types of traffic to consider, fast and long-term.

The fast traffic a site receives is paid traffic that works, and usually, the fast, free methods are not very effective.

how to get website trafficFor fast traffic, the best ways to obtain it is by purchasing from Google, Facebook or other legitimate traffic sources with a proven record to deliver results.

The problem with fast traffic is once you stop paying for it, the traffic it was bringing in, is gone.

In other words, to make sales, you must continue spending money for traffic, and sometimes traffic is quite expensive, especially when you’re still tweaking campaign settings and working on different configurations.

Rather than paying large sums of money for traffic, would it not be nice to create a long-term traffic that will keep the sales rolling in month after month.

Dear Travis Smithers,

Thanks for a very simple easy-to-follow guide on learning the basics of affiliate marketing. 🙂 There is just so much out there that I want to explore, but I would not want to waste money on traffic because that has its ups and downs also. However, how are you doing with both Amazon and Clickbank? Which one would you say helps real in the most revenue or would it be hard to say based on the products you choose to promote from both? I think I like the products that give a bit of a Trial Version before you really commit to them and offer them as a recommendation on your website. Of course you have to keep track when that Trial expires, but I do find it hard to figure out which programs offer a Trial Version beforehand or else you have to submit really personal information right off the bat at the beginning like how some people fall into several online scams.
I am glad to hear you mention the part of the No Credit Card is required aspect, many people aren’t too aware of many online programs that cater to an audience with that kind of option in my honest opinion.

Wishing you all the best with your online success above and beyond the horizon,

    Well first off just let me thank you for taking the time for leaving a comment. It does make a difference which products you see about promoting as to which ones will sell faster than one another. Amazon sells just about everything where ClickBank is all about digital products.

    I do offer products from both sources, but I would have to say more of them are from Amazon, and I do more with Amazon compared to Clickbank. I have heard of some people only dealing with Clickbank and making good profits from them.

    Your also right about how many products can have a trial period but you are required to give credit card information. That is something that you do need to keep track of, or you’ll be paying out funds for a months subscription before you know it. I have always tried to avoid such offers as some of them will still charge you even when you quit before the deadline. I find researching what others have to say is the best and if they have a free trial or free package with no credit information required up front are the best to try.

    Most of the time if a company will offer stuff for free with no obligations or credit information they know what they offer is worth people subscribing for after they try out their offer. There set up to help you get what you need first before they expect to be paid for their services meaning they are not just about the money but making sure you’re happy with their service. That’s why I chose Wealthy Affiliate and for the first time promote WA because of what they stand for with helping others.
