The best tip I could give anyone just getting started online would be to look closely at marketing affiliate products. In future posts I’ll talk about where to find other peoples products that you can sell online, but the one thing you need to fully understand from the start is to offer your readers some great (and useful) content.
Your aim should be to make your readers want to buy the products you’re recommending through your links, rather than somebody elses. In order to achieve that, you need to offer value to your readers, and gain their trust. Once they feel they can trust you (and that you’re not simply in the game to make some money from them), they will be only too willing to buy through your links based on your reviews and recommendations.
Very simple really – but something you need to remain focused on if you want to be successful.
