So let’s dive in.

The Biggest Obstacle For Newbie Affiliate Marketers

The first and most important thing you need to do to be successful with affiliate marketing is to choose a niche that you’re passionate about or simply want to know more about.

  • If you choose a niche because it pays a big commission and you don’t know anything about it, you won’t be able to create content or communicate with your audience in a way that they trust you.
  • Your competitors can easily crush you because they know more about your audience than you do,
  • They will be able to communicate better and easier, and can build more trust.

REMEMBER: People buy from people they trust.

And, a lot of that trust comes down (well a huge portion of it) to how you communicate with your potential buyers… through your content.

The biggest obstacle you may encounter as an affiliate marketer is difficulty in creating content, and if you can’t create content that your target audience likes to read, they won’t buy.

And the higher the price of your affiliate product, and the bigger commissions, the harder this becomes.

Therefore, when starting out,

  • It’s best to go for products, even if they pay a lower commission, such as $47 commission, but it’s a niche you like to talk about.
  • You can be successful with this niche because it’ll be easy for you to create content.
  • You’ll enjoy creating this content.

This is just a recommendation, but it’s the easiest thing you can do if you’re a complete beginner or just entering a brand new niche.

Finding Affiliate Programs Using Google

The easiest way to do this is to go to Google.

You may overlook it, but learning how to search on Google properly offers great products in almost any niche.

Google is your best friend when it comes to affiliate marketing, Google basically holds all the information you need…

and find affiliate programs that you don’t even know about.

To find these hidden products you can use this simple search term, like this:

“Best [Your Niche] Affiliate Programs”

Google will instantly display many websites with lists of the best affiliate programs in your niche.

Your task is to go through the list one by one and find the best program that’s most relevant to your target audience.

You’ll find some programs that are difficult to navigate or sign up for, just move on to the next one until you find the right one.

Let’s say you’re in the tennis niche.

You can search  “best tennis affiliate programs” on Google.

Find affiliate programs in your niche

As you can see below, there are websites that have compiled a list of the best tennis affiliate programs.

Maybe other people have written articles about it, so you can go through each of the affiliate program examples like you see below, and find the best one for your audience.

To show you that you can find any affiliate program using this method, let’s look for something that’s nothing to do with sports.

For example, cosplay

We search for the “Best Cosplay Affiliate Program.”

 As you can see below, there are even cosplay affiliate programs. Have a read through the link here to see what I mean about the affiliate pages.

Proven Template To Get Accepted to Affiliate Programs

Once you have found these programs, you ware going to need to apply to join them.

In order to apply, you’ll need to provide some basic information about your website, and this is where you’ll need to get a little creative when it comes to how you request approval for these programs.

  • Because some affiliate programs don’t really want beginners to promote their products, but only the best affiliates with experience.
  • So you need to be able to show them that you’re pretty experienced in this game, and one good thing about expired domains (more on these in another post) is that it looks like you’ve been running your website for a long time, maybe 5 to 10 years.

Some affiliate programs and networks will ask questions about your traffic sources and your website to better understand how you’ll promote their products. Traffic sources are things like:

  • Facebook,
  • Email marketing,
  • Twitter,
  • TikTok
  • Ad networks, etc…

But not to worry, below we’ll look at a template you can use to get approved by these programs so you can start advertising right away, no guarantees.

It includes details about your website, your description, your main promotional strategy, the size of your email list, and your monthly website visitors.

For the description, you can copy this template and swap anything you like to adapt it to your own business… do make sure you adapt it.

Get accepted to affiliate programs letter

As you can see, our description says exactly what the creators of these affiliate programs want to hear because they want to work with partners who’re able to sell their products.

They also want to know a little bit about the strategy you’re using, and our main promotional strategies are:

  • SEO (long-tail keywords)
  • Content marketing
  • Email Marketing.

The next point is the size of your email list. This is where you don’t say zero, because that would hurt your chances of getting approved, but you just have to be a little creative.

You can say over 3000 or a specific number that you want to reach in the next few months…

First Steps – Set Up Your Website

The first and most important thing you need to do is set up your website with great content before you apply for these free affiliate programs because they make it super easy and credible when they come to your website and see that it has tons of great content.

For someone new to building a webiste online we recommend Dreamhost, we use them for many of our affiliate sites, and they are super good, and most importantly super inexpensive for what it is you get ($38), for a years hosting, plus free domain name, plus so much more.

Finally, you have seen how easy it can be to find products for any niche you want to get into. You do not have to worry about not finding the right product.

Even though you have to search for these products first when you get started, you do not have to sign up right away. Before you do, I recommend you set up your website with great content and only then to apply for these affiliate programs.

If you are currently having trouble finding the right affiliate program for your target audience, I hope this short post helps you move forward on your affiliate marketing journey.
