Niche Affiliate Marketing - The Ticket to Profiting Online

When you finally make the decision to make a living online, you're going to be bombarded with all sorts of verbiage with respect to different types of marketing. One of the most lucrative of those terms is niche affiliate marketing.

Niche affiliate marketing is the greatest way to get started online and one of the quickest and easiest things you can do. Let me show you why.

If you don't already know what affiliate marketing is, well just type that term into any search engine and you'll get plenty to choose from. Affiliate marketing is simply selling someone else's product and getting paid a commission for each sale. Some affiliate programs pay a small fee for each click to their website from your link or banner.

Niche affiliate marketing is essentially targeting an explicit affiliate niche or target market. In other words, you might be involved in sports, but that's a really huge niche. You would be better to aim for a niche market more precise like football or golf.

When choosing a market, you need to make sure it isn't too small or too big . If you get into a very small niche, you might find there isn't much to market. For example, if your niche were golf clubs, rather than golf in general, you might be limiting your topics and product choices.

You might be better off to choose a larger niche. That way you can sell information about golf resorts, golf tees, golf clubs, and even target specific golf products, like Tiger Woods products. By the way, golf is a very popular niche to be in but it's also very competitive.

When the Internet was a new medium and people were just learning to market online, each one of us had to basically create everything from scratch. We had to figure out what the best keywords were, how to use them and then build the website, design the graphics, and drive the traffic. Heck, traffic is a whole major niche of it's own and I don't mean the freeway kind!

A lot of things have changed since I started online. Today, you can buy packages for niche affiliate marketing that contain prewritten niche websites with everything included. All you need to do is FTP them up to a web host and market them.

Some of these packages also contain prewritten articles and bonus packages to lure your prospects into signing up for a list or purchasing your products. A word of caution, however, be very careful when choosing these packages.

The amazing thing to me is that many of them are very reasonable in price. And some of these niche affiliate marketing packages also include training to teach you how to promote them. The marketer who created the package will also grow from your efforts when you promote the package, so the training is in their best interest.

I highly recommend that when you're starting out, it will benefit you a great deal to find a package that includes training. Some have very high price tags on them, but those prices don't really ensure that you're getting a quality product.

Because of the competitive market today, the prices have gone down while still retaining a great deal of quality.

So, find a really good product that includes a website you can put up quickly and good training to show you how to drive traffic to the site. Then, if you like, you can build a small niche affiliate marketing empire around it.

Just do it once and repeat over and over. And, over time, your profits will get bigger and bigger. You get the picture!
