Remember the second element of success with this system – the website? Well it doesn’t matter if you put articles on a webpage or lots of small posts on a blog – but whatever type of page it is, it must have your auto-responder email capture form on it.
Some people use a separate,specially designed squeeze page that has nothing but a headline, bullet points, and the name capture form.You can integrate it into a portion of your blog, but make sure it makes its way onto the page above the fold (meaning they don’t have to scroll down) so that you can start building your list of suscribers (see recommended resources)
Important: If you spend any extra time at all on anything in this system, spend it on your opt-in area so your visitors will convert into subscribers. You will be sending an update of the posts on your blog to begin with and then you might be adding a link to a free report you think they might like Eventually your recommendation for a product or resource will follow so you want to make sure you find or write valuable email messages and not trash. Here is a link for the auto-responder with a top reputation for the services they provide: aWeber Free Trial
Don’t make the mistake of sticking AdSense all over the place –- if you’re a serious affiliate marketer,you want your visitors to leave your site to follow your link to high affiliate moneymakers, not piddly pennies per adsense click!
Here’s a major mistake many marketers make. They think that since they’re building a website anyway, why not have as many moneymaking opportunities as possible so they at least earn something? If you take this approach, you’re going to see a trickle of Ad Sense income build up over a long time rather than waves of affiliate commission flood in on a regular basis.
Not only that, but let’s say you build up steam and start seeing 2,000 hits a month – then 5,000, and so on. What if every single visitor clicked on an Ad Sense ad?
Sounds great, right?
Not really. Once those 5k visitors are gone, so is your moneymaking opportunity. Imagine adding 5,000 people to your niche list each month. Imagine those people investing in the $47 product you’re promoting for a 50% commission rather than a one-time $0.10 Ad Sense ad.
Sounds a lot better, doesn’t it?
After all is said and done you have one domain up with content, a free report to offer, and an auto-responder system in place, and you repeat it again and again. Do not be concerned if it seems that you are going to have to produce a large amount of writing, I will have information about the ways you can get all the content you need for very low money output in next installment.

This system of affiliate marketing is based on planting seeds all over the place, without waiting for one site to become mega popular – many of the most successful affiliates raking in the most money have dozens of sites operating in sync with one another to churn out big commissions based on a growing subscriber base and a healthy myriad of affiliate programs to promote.
And don’t let it freak you out at the thought of building dozens of niche sites like this. It’s very simple to set up a blog on a domain and plug PLR content to an auto-responder.
You might do the first few yourself and once the money gets rolling, outsource it to a freelance virtual administrative assistant as grunt work that you don’t want to mess with.
So now that you know the system in its basic form, let’s see it all unfold with a real niche. You follow along as I do my sample so that by the time you finish reading this introductory course, you have one site completed and then you can repeat it and be on your way to making affiliate sales.

So you want to see how it would all work in a real niche? Let’s use dogs as our example. Dog owners are almost fanatical about investing in knowledge for their four-legged friends – they buy everything from what breed to choose to grooming and training materials.
As an affiliate for the dog niche, here’s how you’re would make this system work for you:
Step 1: Choose a More Narrow Niche
Let’s not start out with “dogs” in general. Let’s drill down a bit and go with “dog training.”
You’ll need to drill down yourself. And yeah, gurus will promote all sorts of complex and expensive tools to help you find a narrow niche but let’s keep things cheap, shall we?
Go to the free Google keyword tool and type in the broadest keyword for the niche that you can think of. In our case, it’ll be “dog.”
When I type that word in, the very first result that comes up is dog training. There are also a lot of dog health topics, which would be another good drilled down niche.
I also like to then do a search for that narrow keyword phrase – dog training – and see what comes up. I’m looking for a couple of things. I want to know if there will be info products I can promote and possible tangible products I can promote via Amazon.
On the tangible front, I see lots of searches for dog training collars, books, and DVDs. And aside from the dog training books also working for info products, I see lots of searches for dog training classes, dog training advice, etc.
I could take it even narrower, focusing on puppies or an aspect of training like potty training or obedience training. But for right now, I’m not. I’m going to stick with dog training and branch out from there.
