Affiliate marketing is a great way to make money online, and even if you don't have a list of customers who buy every time you email them, you can still make money with Internet based affiliate marketing with this cool tactic that I use. I actually have taught my mom to do this in several niches and she uses it to bring in a couple thousand dollars a month. She's wanting to retire and works a full time job, so I knew I had to come up with something she could do fairly easy.

First, you'll need to pick a pretty broad niche. Like health, hobbies, etc. Yes, you can even use Internet marketing. That's actually the niche I use this tactic for.

So, once you have your niche, you need to make sure their are plenty of digital products for your niche ClickBank, PayDotCom, and SaleFlurry are the three biggest affiliate sites where you can find tons of digital products you can sell as an affiliate.

Pick 1 digital products to start out with. You're either going to have to buy it or ask the owner for a review copy because you'll need to write a review for the product. Now this is really important. You're not writing an ad for the product, you're writing a review. My suggestion is to go to a place like EzineArticles and read articles about how to write a review before writing your first one.It's really not that hard, so don't let that discourage you. Once you get your first one done, all other ones you write will be super easy.

Once you have your product reviewed, and the review written for it, it's time to create a blog, and post the review to your blog. Make sure you create links so that once the person reads your review, they can buy the product. These will be your affiliate links. I highly recommend getting your own domain name and installing a blog on it.

Okay, so you've got a blog with your product review. There's only one problem. No one is coming to your blog, right? Well here's where the secrets come in. Just kidding. The secret is there are no secrets. Just tactics you have to learn.

So the first thing I do is use an RSS submitter tool, and submit my blog RSS feed to the directories. This will give you some instant traffic.

The second thing I do is pay an article writer to write an article for me on the topic of the product I have reviewed. Once you have your article, there's one more step you have to take before we use the articles, and that's keyword research.

You need to find easy to rank for keywords that are related to your product. An easy to rank for keyword is simply a keyword that gets good searches but doesn't have a lot of competition. There are a lot of software programs online that will help you determine easy to rank for keywords. You'll need 2-3 easy to rank for keywords per product. Using easier keywords to rank for in the beginning will allow your affiliate marketing website to gain search rank much quicker.

Once you have those, make sure to take one of them and use it to link back to your site in your resource box. This will give you backlinks for that keyword because we're going to be submitting the article to article directories. Backlinks are important and submitting articles is a great way to get them.

Take your other keywords you have, and use other ways to get backlinks for them. Either have more articles written or learn more ways to get backlinks. Believe me, there are tons of ways to get backlinks and many of them are free.

Once you've done this, rinse and repeat with a new product....

What does all of this accomplish?

If you keep writing reviews for your products and putting your affiliate links in the reviews, you'll make sales on those products by driving traffic the ways I've told you. There are tons of ways to drive traffic, but this is the easy method for building your affiliate marketing business. You'll get some instant traffic, but by using the backlink tactic, you'll also get long term traffic as your reviews start ranking for their keywords.
