1) Research
Before you start your affiliate marketing business, it’s important that you do plenty of research on what a successful affiliate marketing business looks like. There are tons of free resources out there on how to create a profitable, sustainable affiliate business that can support you financially and help you achieve any other goals you have (whether they be financial or personal). Don’t be afraid to leverage every resource available to ensure your success.

2) Picking a niche
First things first, you’re going to need a niche. A niche is simply a term for your product or service area. If you plan on selling products in multiple categories, then you’ll want to create multiple niches so that you don’t end up competing with yourself by trying to rank for different keywords across two separate products or services. In most cases, it’s easier and more effective to pick one niche and focus all of your efforts into ranking well for that particular keyword or phrase. Once you have a general idea of what type of product(s) or service(s) you want to sell, do some research into related keywords and phrases.

3) Finding Suppliers
For most Amazon FBA businesses, finding suppliers is a critical part of getting started. You can do so by using search tools on Alibaba and by signing up for wholesale directories (like Made-in-China). Once you’ve found a supplier who offers what you need, use your business plan and goals to build a solid relationship with them. For more tips on choosing a supplier, check out our guide here.
If you don’t know how to reach out and develop relationships, consider taking a consulting gig at first. This will give you skills in communications and project management, which are both essential when dealing with suppliers.

4) Setting up your website
Once you’ve decided on a business idea and chosen a domain name, it’s time to get your site online. Setting up an Amazon affiliate website is easy—and of course, there are plenty of tutorials available for those who need help with how-to. You can also hire professionals to do it for you. Either way, setting up a website requires some technical knowledge; if you don’t have any coding skills yourself, consider hiring someone with experience in building websites through Elance or Odesk.

5) Promoting and SEO
Search engine optimization is important in affiliate marketing because most traffic will come from search. If people can’t find your page, they won’t be able to buy your product or service. Take some time to learn about keyword placement and what phrases consumers are using when searching for products you are selling. This will help you develop a strategy that matches up with potential customer expectations. You should also spend time looking at what others in your niche are doing so that you know how best to present yourself as an authority within your industry. A lot of successful affiliates have multiple websites focused on different niches, each one with its own specific purpose. These types of sites work well if you want to become an authority on more than just one thing.
