What is affiliate marketing
According to Wikipedia, affiliate marketing is “type of performance-based marketing in which a business rewards one or more affiliates for each visitor or customer brought by the affiliate’s own marketing efforts.” My definition is you recommend something you love to your customers and when they buy, you receive a commission or referral fee. Just like you would not recommend a movie that you had not seen, you would not recommend a product that you didn’t use or didn’t trust the source. When you are an affiliate for digital products you generally receive a higher commission; however, I still recommend physical products from Amazon, Walmart and Target. Now that you understand affiliate marketing, let’s move on to affiliate niche site.
What is an affiliate niche site?
An affiliate niche site is a website that you build that is around a niche such as Halloween or Christmas. I have built Halloween niche sites as well as Christmas sites. It can be very profitable if you build your site around popular products and you drive traffic to your site. This is a great way to build passive income.
Why would want to an affiliate niche site now?
Now is a great time to build niche sites especially around the holidays. More people are looking to buy presents online especially during Black Friday and Cyber Monday. People are doing more shopping online and less at brick-and-mortar stores. In 2015, $69.1 billion was spent on ecommerce during the holiday season and it is expected to grow by 16.6% this year. 92% of holiday shoppers will go online to either research or purchase gifts this holiday season
How do I build an affiliate niche site?
I build my affiliate niche sites using WordPress. I buy a domain name, purchase hosting and install my site using WordPress. WordPress is very easy to maintain yourself. Also, you can buy Private Label Rights or PLR articles to put on your site. There are even videos that you can put on your site.
