If you want to try your hand at affiliate marketing (why not, it's easy!) but the idea of promoting a bunch of different products you have no interest in doesn't hold much appeal, then niche affiliate marketing is probably for you. Many people simply look online at the programs and websites that offer the biggest commission for affiliate marketers, they build websites promoting those programs, or they write ads or articles to do so, and they sign up for several different types of programs. Many of them are programs about how to make money on the Internet, which is one of the hottest types of affiliate marketing programs out there.
But what if you don't care for that scattershot approach of several different types of programs? And what if the idea of getting started in affiliate marketing by promoting programs that teach affiliate marketing or promise to help customers make money online feels strange to you or makes you uncomfortable (particularly if you haven't used the program, and really don't know if it really delivers on its promises)? There is a way to make money with affiliate marketing without making yourself uncomfortable with what you're selling, or having to sell several different types of products: niche affiliate marketing.
What knowledge do you have that other people might want? If you're shaking your head, thinking you couldn't possibly have any valuable knowledge, you're not thinking hard enough. Think of everything you've done successfully or know how to do. Just because these things came easily to you, or you think of them as everyday humdrum things in your own life, doesn't mean that other people won't find it fascinating or helpful. If you have children, that alone is a gold mine of opportunity for affiliate marketing. Just based on your experience with raising a child, you have advice and tips to offer potential parents who are hungry for information about the best way to do things. If you've had pets, the same holds true. If you know how to golf, or spelunk, or catch record-breaking catfish. . . anything you do holds the potential for niche affiliate marketing.
You might be wondering how this leads to niche affiliate marketing. It's simple. Let's say your interest is parenting. Find a parenting and child-related merchant that offers an affiliate program. Once you get that set up, then write an article about parenting. Don't panic, it's not hard! Simply write a short article, about 500 words or the length of this article about something relating to parenting. Possibilities are the steps you took to wean your child from bottles or pacifiers, how you began teaching the child to read, home remedies you used for diaper rash. You don't have to be a writer, you only have to be able to convey that information. Then at the end you put your affiliate link.
The more you write the more people will read and click your link, so the more money you'll earn with niche affiliate marketing.
