4 Steps to affiliate success: Step 1 what is your Niche

There are many ways to be successful as an affiliate, but this article lays out the process that we have found to be the most reliable and sustainable while still being very inexpensive. Many affiliates try to skip steps 2 & 3 and go straight from picking a product to immediately promoting it. This makes it really difficult to succeed, and doesn’t set up your business for success, so make sure to implement the steps in the order they’re listed here.

Step 1

Choosing your niche:

3 questions:

  1.      What are you interested in 
  2.      Do people spend money in it
  3.      Are there product to promote


1. What are you interested in?

  1.      Passions, fitness, causes, education.
  2.      Hobbies, fishing, gardening, chess
  3.      Problems, obesitas, depressions, home repair
  4.      Trends, healthy living, organic eating


Your goal: Become an Authority in the niche


2. Do people spend money in the niche?

Look for:

  1.      Advertizers, online and offline
  2.      Magazines about the subject
  3.      Books. Are there many books about the subject?
  4.      Associations/Groups


         3. Are there Product to promote?

  2.      Physical products

Best is a combination!
