Why become an affiliate marketer?
Don't use your personal media (unless it fits!)
A common mistake is to spread your message and links on your personal media. While this is not always wrong, you should consider who the audience of your personal media are? A good guess is that they are following you. Obviously if the message fits your own personal media, use it, but be sure to check that there is a match between the content you are posting and the audience.
Audience and niche
To segment your target audience you need to find out what the audience is interested in. This can be done in several ways, and one is to research the brand of the product/service you want to sell. Check the social media of these products and see who the people engaging there are.
By following these general guidelines you can work towards getting high-quality traffic to your links. By high-quality traffic we are not only talking about clicks, but of clicks that actually convert. Anyone can buy thousands of clicks, but making sure these clicks actually provide the advertiser with sales and you with commissions for these sales is what we are gunning for here.
Finally, remember to always keep evolving: Keep an interest in your audiences, follow them to see how they change over time, and be sure to keep up with them. The same obviously goes for the products/services you market and for your topics and niches in general. With these general ideas we hope that the concept of becoming an affiliate marketer is a bit more easy for you.
