One major problem affiliate marketers have is their tendency to join multiple programs and never follow through on any of them after that.

Joining an affiliate marketing program is not enough. In order to make money on the Internet as an affiliate marketer you need to follow through with action that can be broken down into several key steps.

Let’s take a look at what steps you should take after you have joined an affiliate marketing program.

1. It is a good idea to firstly write down your major goal for each particular affiliate program you join. While doing this bear in mind that the amount you can achieve depends to a large extent on the amount of time that you have available to put into your online affiliate business. You can set high goals by all means, but place them within a realistic time frame and ensure that they are achievable.

While most affiliate marketers join a program to make money, your goal initially might be something simple like get 50 visitors a day to your website. You could then make longer term and shorter term goals. Each short term goal should be a step that takes you closer to your long term goal with the affiliate marketing program.

2. Now that you have a goal for the program that you joined you are going to need to choose one of the products on the affiliate website to focus on selling. Many affiliate programs offer various categories you can choose products to sell from. Choosing a single product is your main objective here and ideally it should be one that is in demand and one that interests you.

3. Your next step is extremely important. Now you need to create a website that will specifically address the niche market for the affiliate product you chose to promote.

Whilst your website doesn’t have to be very many pages long, it should be very precise as to why a person would want to buy this particular product from you. If you purchase the product and try it out beforehand you will increase your odds of creating a good website.

4. A sign up form to build a mailing list is something you definitely want to have on your website. This means that you will need to subscribe to an auto-responder such as GetResponse , Aweber or one of their competitors. Your auto-responder will enable you to store the contact information of your visitors and you can send them newsletters on autopilot.

You can always hire someone to build a website for you if you do not want to build it yourself. You will find many people who offer their services freelance on the Internet and you can find someone to build your site by searching on Google.

5. Your next step is to start your own blog and relate it to the theme of your website. An easy way to start a blog is through or Word Press, which is an excellent alternative and both blogging platforms are entirely free.

Adding fresh content as often as possible to your blog should be your goal. Every time you post include a link in the article that points visitors back to your main website. Not only will your fresh content attract readers but also serve as search engine bait. Also your blog is also an excellent place to add a sign-up form to your autoresponder and build your list for future follow up.

6. Your final step is to put together an internet marketing campaign to promote your affiliate products. To increase the amount of traffic to your business you will want to promote your website and your blog independently of each other.

Follow these are six basic steps to get your affiliate marketing business off the ground as quickly and efficiently as possible.

If you do not want to go to the trouble of finding affiliate programs to join and building your own website, an alternative would be to get yourself a ready made affiliate website.

Starting an internet affiliate marketing business is a great way to make extra money. Affiliate marketing has become very popular with online opportunity seekers because it has a very simple premise: Market and sell other people’s products and earn a good commission for doing so.

As an affiliate marketer you are basically a middle man. Your job is to help the buyer find the seller and vice versa. You do this by employing several different marketing and promotional strategies to catch the eyes of potential buyers.

The commissions you can earn vary from product type to product type. Companies that depend on the internet as their only sales outlet typically pay a high percentage rate (50% to 80%). Traditional companies such as WalMart also have an affiliate program but commission rates are much lower (5% to 20%).
