Learn Affiliate Marketing: The best way for beginners!

In this post you will discover the unique way to learn affiliate marketing. Once you excel these steps, you will excel Affiliate Marketing as well. Before getting into the steps to master the art of Affiliate Marketing, let’s have a look at its simple one-line definition:

“It is the art of selling other people’s product and earning the commissions.”

The commissions may be in the range of 50%-90%. Understand that, statistically Affiliate Marketing is 6.8 Billion dollar a year industry. And, companies desperately requires Affiliate like you to sell their products online. So, you can figure out that there is no limit to income. Once you have right mindset and right approach, there is no way of losing this game.

Some people are largely greed driven. They just want to sell something to someone, so they can earn commission. As I said in definition, Affiliate Marketing is the ART OF SELLING. So, let’s educate ourselves to learn this ART step-by-step.

Step-1: Define “WHY?”

Why do you want to learn the art of Affiliate Marketing?

Are you simply browsing?; Do you have a negative perception towards it? What is your true reason to learn “Affiliate Marketing”?

Making money may be a good reason.

But, do you REALLY want to earn money? Or, are you somehow satisfied by your current finances?

Friends, you have to associate PAIN with your current financial conditions. To make BIG money, you need a laser FOCUS. Any level of focus is impossible to attain, as long as you are satisfied with yourself. Once you are able to associate PAIN with your financial life, your mind will be able to learn new skills. Then being focused will no longer remain a challenge, and you will be able to answer, Why! It should be your first step.

Step-2: Quiet you Mind.

The mind plays a major role in this arena and unfortunately, it plays the role of a VILLAIN. It will say, “NO, it’s not for you, go and try something else.” OR, “THEY ARE LOW LEVEL WORKS, YOU ARE TOO EDUCATED TO DO THIS!” OR, “It will feel too odd to call yourself an Affiliate Marketer among your friends and family members.”

Your mind will convince you in the best way possible to stay away from anything NEW to it.

But, let me tell you one thing, that, Affiliate Marketing is the most essential foundation skill for all BIG online Business Owners. They all start with Affiliate Marketing, then keep moving up Level by Level unless SKY becomes their limit.

So, quiet your mind and start learning Affiliate Marketing with PASSION.

Step-3: Think BIG!

Understand that, you are starting with Affiliate Marketing and you have miles to go ahead. Later on, you will have your own digital products and your own registered BUSINESS.

Dig deeper in your inner self and ask, “In what ways you can help others?”

The great teacher of money, T. Harv Eker says: “If you help few people, you will make small money, But, if you help more people, you will make BIG money.”

Affiliate Marketing, is not a destination to reach. But it is the first step of a staircase, which leads to becoming a BIG online Entrepreneur. So, through Affiliate Marketing you are starting your journey towards online business.

Step-4: Hone your Marketing Skills!

People have very negative notion about marketing, which makes them promote anything purely driven by the greed of making money.

Learn To market because you have to educate people about your product or anyone else’s product to meet their most sought after needs. Your product can change people’s lives for the better.

Learn To market because you value your product and services and it’s your duty to offer your helping hand to MANY!

Keep in mind, without Marketing skills nobody can succeed in any business, whether online or offline.

Step-5: Persistence and Hard-Work

In your initial days, you may not have a team, you might be working all alone. But take heart, a great future awaits you if you remain persistent. Be always ready to do whatever it takes.

Be prepared to dedicate yourself. Read books, take online courses on business and marketing. Work hard to strengthen your inner self.

Somebody asked Robert Kiyosaki, his advice to new Entrepreneurs. And, he straightforwardly replied, “You are going to fail. Now the question is what will you do if you fail?”

So, be prepared for initial failures and also be prepared for achieving great successes.

Step-6: Find the right Mentor!

Find somebody who can guide you step-by-step. A good mentor will be able to shorten your path to success. Finding a good mentor is a key. Don’t follow anyone randomly, your mentor should be well experienced in Online Business world.

Every great people of the present day, who are creating change in this world are being mentored by geniuses.

So, shortlist your mentor who is doing really well in the area of Affiliate Marketing. Then choose one of them based on your budget, his/her accessibility to you etc.

After choosing 1 mentor, FOLLOW THE PROCESS 100%, thereafter. You must do whatever s/he asks you to do, no matter what!

Step-7: Watch out your Self-Talk!

This step is most important because initially, our conversation to ourselves is so unguided. It creates a lot of messy situations within ourselves. Our mind becomes possessed by UNBELIEF of every kind.

Mind would say, “You are never going to succeed because you are not qualified to do all this!” or, “It will take a lot of time!” or, “Your physique and voice is going to be your greatest obstacle to succeed.” or, even worse, mind would say: “You are not going to earn a penny online. Stop wasting your time now and get back to work!”

Please understand, the job of our mind is SURVIVAL, it will stop you to exercise any unknown habit you would like to implement. But, once you start taking actions with FAITH, you will be able to control your mind. Once the faith is generated, then you will become UNSTOPPABLE!

Final Words:

You are getting into the path of an Online Business and Affiliate Marketing is the first step in this journey. So commit yourself to excel in this skill. Be ready for a powerful start. Follow each of the above steps sincerely. And, finally, have FAITH in yourself.

If you ever need a hand or have any questions, feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to help you out.

All the best,

I face quite challenging tasks when I started in wealthy affiliate but currently am getting the hang of it and it’s paying off already. Having a mentor from affiliate sites is also very important, someone to guide you and put you through when things get rough. Great write up, very helpful.

  9. Hello Akshay, 

    Nice step by step guild to what you need to become an affiliate marketer. 

    In step 2, you say people need to quite their minds, do you use a product to do this, something like headspace? 

    Marketing is, like you said big business, where do you find is the best place to hone marketing skills. Is it best to start a paid course, or is there a website I can go to. 

    Thanks,

    Matt

    • Thanks, Matt for carefully analyzing my post. I appreciate your trust. As you asked, how to quiet your mind and how to hone marketing skills.

      I believe sometimes people become so much addictive in taking courses that they often forget what’s already there with them. Once I consciously decided that I am willing to become an affiliate marketer, it was fixed in my mind. Then rest of the stuffs like refreshing ourselves, all required online tools becomes visible to me.

      Striving towards one goal brings success. Currently, my pace is a bit slow because of my regular 9-5 job. But I am committed towards Affiliate Marketing success. I am sure that my dedication in this field will teach me EVERYTHING I need. And the same for everybody.

      Thanks a lot for your heartfelt feedback.

      Cheers!

  13. This is a great motivational post that a lot of online entrepreneurs can benefit from especially those just starting out. It is not an easy journey and actually requires a lot of self-motivation to keep you going. You would face a lot of challenges along the line and without the right mindset, you can be sure that it would bring you down.

    The idea of getting a mentor is very important. You someone that has already gotten to where you plan on going. This would make you take the right necessary steps and not just rely on guesswork. I have learned a lot from this post and it was really inspirational.

    • Hi Arie, I am so glad that you have accurately captured the basic intention of this post. It is definitely to build trust with my audience. People are the greatest asset. Each and every word of your review is my motivation as well. A lot more is coming up. 🙂

  17. Hello Akshay,

    Affiliate Marketing is a discipline that encompasses many aspects that we should try to manage the best way possible, if it is your intention to earn extra money. As explained, affiliate marketing is art related mainly to the sale. 

    It will show the product after the previous analysis with all its virtues and also with its weaknesses. When the sale takes place the affiliate will receive his deserved commission, for all the work done. 

    Thank you very much for sharing such a valuable article. 

    Regards. Claudio

  18. I agree that one of the important parts of starting an online affiliate job is having a good mentor. A mentor that has good knowledge and is devoted to offering help. Hard work is indispensable also, but it will pay off finally. One thing that I like about becoming an affiliate is I don’t have to get into financial risk, but the income might become residual.
    I like your instructions for beginners.
